Here's the cover of the 6th Brides of Prophecy novel!
Here's the blurb:
They’re from two different worlds….
For months, Beau Thompson, bass player of Rage of Angels and novice mage, has been fighting a secret crush on Artavian Calla, healer sorcerer, and apprentice to the King of Aisthanesthai.
But with a big war coming and a tenuous alliance between sorcerers and vampires to be negotiated, there’s little time to pursue love. Or maybe Beau’s just scared, since he’s only had brief flings.
Yet each completes the other.
As magic returns to Earth and Rage of Angels are recruiting vampires to fight an evil would-be god, the sorcerer and the rock star spend more time exploring their attraction. And together, Beau and Artavian might have the power to save their friends, and maybe both of their worlds, from a returning enemy.
This is the first m/m romance I'll have written. I never intended on writing a m/m romance, until I wrote Wrenching Fate and knew that one day Beau would find his love.
I hope to have a teaser for you in early December, but for now, here's a recipe for TURKEY!!!
Required Materials: Roasting Pan Aluminum Foil Turkey Baster Meat Thermometer
Ingredients: 1: 15-20lb turkey (If larger may need to increase other ingredients) 1-2 stalks celery 1 large orange 1 onion (I prefer sweet) 1/2 to 1 clove of garlic 1 big carrot or 8-10 baby carrots 1 1/2 to 3/4 bottle of ginger ale (2 liter) 1 can chicken broth 1 bay leaf 2 tbs. thyme 2 tbs. parsley 2 tbs. sage 1 tbs. lemon pepper 1 tbs. Seasoned Salt (Johnny's or Lawry's is best!)
(I know it's a long list, but it's totally worth it!) Okay, here we go.
Preheat oven to 350 Mix thyme, sage, parsley, lemon pepper, and seasoning salt in a small bowl Chop the onion, carrot, and celery Peel the garlic and split into segments Peel the orange and split into segments
Line the roasting pan with enough foil to cover the turkey. Remove the neck and giblets from turkey Rub the herb mixture inside both neck and rear cavities of the turkey and a little on the outside. Stuff turkey with chopped onion, carrot, celery, garlic, orange segments, and bay leaf. Place turkey in roasting pan. Pour all chicken broth and half required ginger ale into the cavity. Truss the turkey and pour more ginger ale over bird and around it.
Make a foil tent over the bird, but try not to have the foil touch it. Baste periodically and remove foil to allow turkey to brown 45 min to 1 hr before done. Turkey is done when thermometer inserted into thickest part of the thigh reads 180 degrees.
Here is estimated cooking time by weight: 10-15 lbs = 3 3/4 -4 1/2 hrs. 15-22lbs = 4 1/2- 5 hrs 22-24lbs = 5- 5 1/2 hrs. 24-29lbs = 5 1/2- 6 1/4 hrs
When turkey is done, remove from oven, cover, and let stand 10- 15 min before carving. This allows the juices to resettle.
Bonus Gravy Recipe: Ingredients: (To taste and as needed) Turkey drippings/ marinade Milk Cornstarch Parsley Thyme Sage Salt (if needed) Black Pepper
Using the turkey baster, remove as much liquid from turkey as you need and heat it to boiling in a medium saucepan Mix cornstarch with milk and add to boiling turkey drippings, Slowly lower the heat and blend with a whisk. thicken to desired texture and in the meantime season to taste with herbs and pepper. Try not to burn your tongue!
Happy Thanksgiving to my US readers, for my out of the US readers, you can still make an excuse to have turkey. ;)
I am so sorry for the delay in having the book available on all outlets. My publisher's copyeditor got sick, which slowed down everything.
But it's here now, and to those of you who picked up the advance copies on NetGalley and Booksprout and reviewed it, I can't thank you enough. Thanks to you, Heart Throb is the #1 New Release in Heavy Metal!
There's also a free copy of Forbidden Song up for grabs through an Amazon giveaway. Go HERE to enter!
Brides of Prophecy 6 will go on preorder soon. Hopefully next week!
I will also be sharing my Thanksgiving turkey recipe because it's YUMMY.
Until next time, thanks so much for being one of my readers!
Saying goodbye is hard, but Brand was a good character to end the series with. Still, it's kinda surreal that Hearts of Metal is over for now. For the past 6 years, I've enjoyed exploring the chaotic world of heavy metal and seeing how my characters find love in such a stressful industry.
However, it is time for me to move on. The series was a miracle from the muse because I don't even read contemporary and never intended to write it. I still can't believe I did so and enjoyed it so much. That said, burnout was coming close and I didn't want to risk providing my readers with less than my best work.
Also, I have more works that I want to focus on.
More on those later.
Here's the blurb for HEART THROB!
Bassist for heavy metal band, Viciöus, Brand Kife is known for his scowl and inability to form meaningful attachments. When he meets Lexi Adams, the director of the documentary being filmed about Viciöus, Brand wants the smart, sexy woman, but knows he's not worth having. Staying away from the alluring beauty becomes impossible, but he has secrets he'll never share, not even with Lexi.
Lexi Adams isn’t ready to settle down and may never be. Every time she’d tried to date, the man wanted to put his needs first. Her first boyfriend had forced her to choose between him and film school. Her second had wanted her to support his film career. And now that Lexi’s career has finally taken off, she doesn't have time to look for a third. Until Brand Kife, who seems more than happy to keep his distance, until he can't, and evermore becomes a reality she embraces with her whole heart and soul.
