Welcome to the Purrrfectly Giftastic Christmas Blog Hop…
With the holidays approaching it means a lot of us will be indulging our sweet tooth…Buying, baking cookies, cakes, pies and so many other yummy goodies. It also means we kinda forget the diet and just enjoy…
Can you blame yourself for giving in? The holiday brings out all the goodies. Some that we might only enjoy during Christmas time. Oh by the way my guilty pleasure is eggnog.
There will be tons of gingerbread houses constructed and devoured…Sugar coma oh yes….
This time of the year just makes us surrender to the yummy goodies in the bakeries….Sweet confections will be exchanged and make us even feel guilty for eating it all in one seating.
Sweet goodies are meant to be enjoyed….
I’m not much of a sugar eater…I’ve cut down a lot but there is one thing that will make me surrender…
I love red velvet…anything red velvet….I can’t help myself…
So tell me what is your sweet guilty pleasure? What cake, pie, cookie or other goodie are you unable to say no to?
Speaking of yummy goodies…my latest release Taste of Passion features some delectable deserts and very yummy passion…Does it get any better when you food brings two hot people together so set the kitchen on fire?
Bakery owner Valentine Benington’s day just went from the best of her life to the worst. Toronto Tribune reviewer, David Fraser, shows up for a review just after a fire comes close to destroying her kitchen. After David’s last assignment, which ended with food poisoning, it’s not the best of starts, especially since the job is a last-minute thing. He doesn’t expect to run into a woman from his past. First looks can be deceiving. The food isn’t the only thing on the menu he’d like to taste. When these two get baking, the flames from the oven aren’t the only thing setting the kitchen on fire.
“Yes, I’m still here,” she replied and covered her mouth with her sleeve trying to breath.
She had to get herself and Sam out of there before it was too late. Just as she moved over to stand up, her phone crashed to the ground, splintering into pieces. The battery slid across the floor and landed somewhere under the sink as the other pieces scattered around her feet.
“Shit,” she groaned.
She wasn’t going to wait for help to arrive and there was no time to run to the front to call them back. Every second that ticked by meant that Sam wasn’t receiving the help he desperately needed. Plus, there was no way to breathe in here. She had to get them outside into the fresh air. They would suffocate if they stayed any longer.
Valentine grasped his arms, lifted them up, and with all the energy she held inside her, she started to pull his unconscious body across the floor toward the back entrance. Sam’s larger statue made it difficult for her and robbed her of energy as she pushed herself and dragged him. The smoke stung her eyes and her airway began to constrict as she felt short of breath. Damn it, she wasn’t going to stop, not now. Valentine inhaled her last breath and pushed through the discomfort and the overwhelming urge to stop. As fast and hard as she could, she shoved her body against the heavy metal door with a thud. Losing her footing, she released Sam and crashed onto the cold, hard ground. Her body hungered for fresh air and she gasped in each breath, filling her oxygen deprived lungs.
Everything happened so fast. One minute she walked into the shop and the next she was battling a fire that was consuming the contents of whatever was in and around the oven. She barely remembered doing anything, let alone dragging Sam out. Adrenaline and instinct kicked in and she got them outside on autopilot.
