Newly divorced Professor Evie Brown notices her student Cameron Slade and how attentive he seems, so totally unlike her ex-husband. Cameron is also delicious to look at, all taut body, broad shoulders, and hot eyes. He’s forbidden territory, but one late afternoon as she pleasures herself in an empty lecture hall, she looks up to find she’s not alone. He’s there…watching her.
And then there’s Sophie Walker. Ever since Evie met the sensual woman, she’s allowed her inhibitions to unreel, one by one. It’s Sophie who’s been sharing Evie’s erotic awakening, Sophie who she yearns for. Or is it?

If you like loaded baked potatoes, you will love this recipe. This is fairly easy to make. My only suggestion, keep an eye on the boiling potatoes. As soon as they are fork tender remove them from the stovetop and rinse them in cold water, also don’t put the water on high pressure or it could make your potatoes fall apart. If you follow the directions and tips you should have a tasty dish.
LOADED BAKED POTATO SALAD
•5 pounds, peeled potatoes, cut in bite size pieces, like the size for regular potato salad
•3 green onions, cut in small pieces
•6 sliced cooked bacon, cut in ½ inch pieces or crumbles
•8 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
•¼ cup mayonnaise
•16 ounces sour cream
•Salt & pepper to taste
•Boil diced potatoes until fork tender, mine took 25 minutes, drain & run under cold water to stop cooking, run water slow, or potatoes will break
• While the potatoes are cooking, mix onion, bacon, cheese, mayo and sour cream.
• When potatoes are done, put in a large bowl. Add mayo mix to the top, add salt and pepper. Fold in. check for seasoning & add more if needed. Keep cool, but I think it tastes best right after you make it. Cover & refrigerate left overs.

BOOK DESCRIPTION, FROM AMAZON
When the Deringer pistol that shot Abraham Lincoln is stolen and ends up in the hands of a Russian military general, covert agent Blake Deco is tasked by the FBI to head to the Balkans to recover the historical weapon. Meanwhile, the United States media is abuzz with news of the mysterious disappearance of Hollywood movie star, Goldie St. Helen.
After Blake’s return from overseas, he receives a tip from a Mexican friend that a drug lord, obsessed with the beautiful actress, is holding her captive in Tijuana. With the help of a reluctant army friend, Blake mounts a daring rescue. What he doesn’t expect is to have feelings for Goldie—or that a killer is hunting them.
Blake Deco was hired by the FBI to recover The Deringer Pistol from the Russians that stole it. After returning from the job Blake was given information from an acquaintance in Mexico about a kidnapped American Actress, Goldie St. Helen being held by a drug lord. With the help of his good friend Jack, Blake heads to Mexico to return Goldie to the states and get her out of harms way. The job wasn’t as easy as Blake thought it would be and his being there sets off a domino affect of death and destruction.
I enjoyed this romantic suspense book. I enjoyed the characters and was glad to see all the story lines in the book come to a conclusion. While the book feels complete as a stand alone, I would love to hear more from these characters. A recommended read.

I was looking in my freezer for a frozen chicken and veggie pasta that I bought. While I love the ease of having a quick freezer meal, I looked at the ingredients and thought I could make this from scratch and it would probably taste better. I hope you give it a try.
CHICKEN AND VEGETABLE PASTA
1 chicken breast, diced
about 1 tablespoon oil for pan frying chicken
1/2 box noodles, cooked per box directions
1 cup broccoli
1/2 cup peas, I used frozen
2 large carrots, sliced
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
1/8 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
1/8 tsp. garlic powder
pinch of crushed red pepper, optional
cook 1/2 box of noodles per directions on box, set aside when done.
while the noodles cook, dice the chicken and pan fry in about 1 tablespoon oil. Cook until cooked completely.
add the diced vegetables, cook until they are tender.
Add noodles, heavy cream and spices, taste the sauce, if you need more spice add now. Add the cheese and mix to combine. Simmer about 3-5 minutes to thicken the sauce. The sauce gets thicker the longer it sits.

Glenna Beckett loves her family dearly, but being the youngest of six can be overwhelming. Moving across country helped her learn who she was outside the family. She’s built a successful business in the form of a quaint shop on Main Street of Calistoga, that sells a bit of everything vintage, the new age term for antique. What more does she need?Then he walked into her shop. International playboy, Lance Gordon. After a whirlwind courtship he asks her to marry him. Burying a niggle of doubt in the pit of her tummy, she says yes. He’s even agreed to have the wedding in Brooklyn so her family can attend. But he never arrives.
Glenna refused to believe she’d been abandoned at the altar and asks her brother, Tyler, to contact an agent friend on the West Coast to search for Lance.
Patrick McGinnis can’t believe he’s walking into a prissy shop in the high end of the Napa Valley searching for a missing groom. The bride, Glenna Beckett, is everything he feared, drop dead gorgeous, and a spoiled brat. Not that he’d ever tell her brother that. He hates wild goose chases, and this mission is exactly that. Patrick’s certain the playboy fiancé is off wooing some other delectable creature.
Unfortunately, once Patrick started to dig, he finds there’s more to the tale and it will take all his skills as an agent to keep Glenna safe. Especially when the case takes a turn and threatens the safety of his son, Finn.
