Cherry Chocolate and The Perfect Dish

My good friend Kristen just found out she’s a finalist in the TARA contest with her fabulous entry The Perfect Dish and I wanted to share her great news.

Meanwhile I keep staring at the bag of Hershey's Cherry Kisses still open on my desk. The scent of cherry chocolate wafts past my nose as I continue to resist the urge to bury my face in the bag.
Must not reach for the cherry chocolate goodness...must resist…

Cherry Kisses

I have discovered yet another perfect chocolate treat.
Hershey's has a limited edition package of Kisses filled with cherry cordial creme.
Oh my! It's just so very yummy! The packaging matches my website with red and black foil. The kiss itself makes me swoon in delight each time I pop one in my mouth. I should stop doing this as I can actually see my hips growing with each one, but just now I discovered a recipe on the back of the package for Cherry Cordial Creme Cheesecake. Oh My! I may have discovered Nirvana.

Blogging for a Diva

Fellow Romance Diva Gena Showalter has a brand new book called Enslave Me Sweetly available for sale.
Here is the awesome cover:

And here is the rest of the story...

Enslave Me Sweetly by Gena Showalter

She has the heart of a killer, and the body of an angel. . .

Eden Black walks among humans, protecting them from the murderous evil of other-worlders who abduct and enslave. And though she appears to be human herself, Eden is an alien, a Raka, distinguished by her golden hair and skin, and gifted with the ominous ability to kill without remorse – and with total accuracy. That is, until the fateful night she has one shot to eliminate her target, a human slaver – and misses.

"Failure" is not in Eden's vocabulary. Neither is "partner" – but that's what she is forcibly assigned after recovering from her disastrous mission. A sexy, steely-nerved human agent, Lucius Adaire enjoys nothing more than sparking the fury – and rousing the desire – of the fiery female assassin to proud to admit defeat. Locked in an assignment they cannot afford to lose, Lucius and Eden find themselves bound in two high-stakes, heart-pounding games: the dangerous web of kill or be killed, and the erotic dance of seduction. . .

Showalter first demonstrated her skill at blending sizzling romance and nail-biting suspense set in a convincing futuristic society in Awaken Me Darkly (2005). She now continues the roller-coaster-like adventure in an equally entertaining tale that will please a wide cross section of readers. *Starred Review* Booklist.
