You may remember the blast I did for #2, Trinkets, Treasures, and Other Bloody Magic for Book Nerd Tours? Well She decided to have some fun with a Fourth-Wall Friday challenge! Like many authors she needed to get her muse in the groove so she went and did some Pilates, because you know yoga, it always helps the brain flow better. Problem with excersize? It

Christmas is the season the Gingerbread Café was made for…but owner Lily couldn’t be feeling less merry if she tried. She’s spent another year dreaming of being whisked away on a sleigh-ride for two, but she’s facing festive season alone – again. And, just to give her another reason to feel anything other than candy-cane perky, a new shop across the road has opened… Not only is it selling baked goods, but the owner, with his seriously charming smile, has every girl in town swooning.
But Lily isn’t about to let her business crumble — the Gingerbread Café is the heart of the community, and she’s going to fight for it! This could be the Christmas that maybe, just maybe, all her dreams – even the someone-to-decorate-the-Christmas-tree-with ones – really do come true!

Welcome to the last week of hardcore baking time before the fat man cometh! Mama’s Kitchen Mondays has a special treat! I have a special guest who wrote this lovely little Novelette, Christmas at the Gingerbread Cafe, a sweet and savory contemporary romance. When I saw this I thought how fun to do a review for my recipe feature! After reading the story I knew exactly what recipe I was going to do! Heck they even make
I love baking for Yule and Christmas! I have not been able to do this year everything I would like too, but since we get to spend Christmas at the Ninja Warming station on Fort Hood (the folks who kept us safe during the winter storm and who I made special Frostie Floats for), I will get to bake more than I expected. HOWEVER, I usually do but these little dandies which are one of my favorites!

What makes it special for Geoff and I is this is the first time we have had a family one since 2004 and not had Nachos or a Tofurkey (yes that is a tradition). We are back over at the families

You know your life has hit rock bottom when you’re living off cooked rats and showering once every few months—if you’re lucky. But for Jackson Hart things are about to get a whole lot worse. When her best friend, Tye, disappears hunting for food, kick-ass Jackson’s ‘head south to safety’ plan looks like it’s dead before it’s even begun. But then she meets ex-mechanic Luke Granger, who takes her to his bunker, feeds her with non-rat based food, and offers her protection against the zombie hordes—not that she needs it. She knows how to use a machete and isn’t afraid to.
Jackson was tempted to stay in the city with her rescuer. Food, shampoo and the possibility of finally getting laid, what more could she ask for? But the flesh eaters are getting smarter and the bunker is compromised, so Jackson and Luke have no choice but to make the journey south
Luke and Jackson team up to find other humans in a road-trip romance for the ages. They travel for thousands of miles with zombies shadowing their every move. They must utilize every resource at their disposal…and then some. On the way, they discover that even if flesh eating zombies are knocking down their door, there’s always time for sex and even love.

I want to thank everyone who has been so supportive during this time for me. We are currently homeless till the power is on again
, and though I am posting, it is only because I have wonderful supportive people who have taken us in. Our cat seems to be OK, poor Asrielle, and Geoff is sleeping, but I am wide awake because I cannot sleep well in other places. Hopefully I can get this out before I have more issues. We do not expect to be back at

I could not resist grabbing this to review when I saw it was medieval fiction. As a medievalist by education and an off and on member of the Society of Creative Anachronism. My secret identity is Marion Waldegrave who is a widower, so I get to wear black, (sumptuary laws about colors of textiles and fabrics.. it’s fun stuff!). As such, anything with historical and fiction in the genre tends to have me walking the other way. But Jolly Fish has not steered me wrong yet
Fairies in My Fireplace
Series: Monster Haven
by R.L. Naguin
on Sept. 3, 2013
Genres: Urban Fantasy
Amazon • Barnes & Noble • Book Depository • Goodreads
Sometimes it’s the monsters who need to be saved…
A migration of mythical creatures has begun, and more and more of them are landing on Zoey Donovan's doorstep. As the only Aegis left in the country, it falls to her to protect the Hidden and keep them safe—and her house has become a sanctuary for water sprites, goblins, harpies, djinn and more.
Keeping track of her boarders is a full-time job, and Zoey's already got her hands full trying to run her wedding planning business. Good thing she has a resident closet monster to keep her organized, and a hot Reaper boyfriend to help her relax every once in a while.
But she can't keep up monster-triage indefinitely, and as more Hidden arrive, it becomes clear that someone—or something—is hunting them. In the midst of planning an event for a notoriously difficult client, Zoey's got to figure out who's behind the hunt…and she's got to stop them before there are no Hidden left.
