I’m addicted to the show, The Great British Bake Off (aka The Great British Baking Show in the US). They are even doing a version in America though I’m not sure I’ll be quite as happy they only have one of the judges, Merry Berry, and none of the original hosts. Anyway…the idea off the show is 12-13 of the nicest bakers in the UK come together and do 3 challenges a week. A Signature Challenge where they bake the theme with a special recipe of theirs. A Technical Challenge where they have no prep time and they don’t get a full recipe and everyone bakes the same. Then the Showstopper Challenge where they bake in the theme and its bigger and better! Everyone is so nice and happy the the hosts make dirty jokes without making them sound like they are dirty LOL. I adore the show.
As do many of my romance friends. So Kelly Maher, E BookPushers, Dee Carney, Zoe Archer, and Nico Russo and I are making a Bake Off of our own! For 10 weeks from this upcoming weekend until March, we will be trying 10 of the 20 technical challenges available. Things like Mini Victoria Sponges, Sweet Pretzels, and a Mini Lemon Tartlets are coming up! I know at least Kelly and I will be on Instagram and Twitter and perhaps Facebook with our bakes. We’re having fun with it and trying out new recipes. Most of us will use the hashtag #RomBakeOff, so I hope you follow along.
This weekend Dr Hubby and I prepped for next week with jam for the Victoria Sponges. We hadn’t made jam before this and wanted to make sure we could before next week so we had time to redo it if needed LOL. It was SO MUCH fun! It turned out well PLUS I made homemade biscuits to test out the jam. Next week the true fun begins so I hope you can follow along!
Yay for Bakes!

Hi All. Google Play changed its practices last night and discounted 90% of my books. To the point that it was actually really scary. Until they fix this, I had to pull my books. I am sorry about the issues. The links will still be on my website for a bit because it will take me hours to take them off and I have to write a book.

Cold spread from a pinprick of sensation as a droplet of water hit Hannah Lewis’s cheek. It trailed down to her eye, forcing her to open them to blink it away.

You can also preorder Mated in Mist now as well! The cover and blurb will show up on retailer sites later today!
Mated in Mist (Talon Pack Book 3) Coming Feb 16th
The Talon Pack continues with an outcast witch and a wolf who can see past the darkness.
As Heir to the Talon Pack, Ryder Brentwood carries the responsibility of not only protecting his Pack, but ensuring its future. Only no one knows that as he does this, he must also shield his people from their past. When a witch with no ties bursts into his life, he must decide if he can overcome the depravity of his secrets and trust the one person who could break the fragile hold on his control.
Grieving over the loss of her twin and on the run from the unknown, Leah Helm knows she is far more alone than she thought possible. Her coven shunned her before she was born and the wolves she sought protection with are in a war of their own. When a wolf with a whisper of secrets is forced to work with her in order to protect their people, she finds she might not be so alone after all.
The world knows more than they ever have before about those shrouded in darkness, while Ryder and Leah are thrust into the center of a conflict they never should have been part of to begin with. On their journey they must not only fight those against them, but the burning temptation that is flaring between them. Fate might have paved their path, but that doesn’t mean they have to follow.
