Ok, so Lori Foster is sort of a romance novel legend.
And we’re aware these titles, “Sawyer” and “Morgan,”
have been published separately before.
But we couldn’t resist making this title our steamy cover for July.
I mean, hello cowboy!
The tip of the cap, the open shirt, the ABS.
We’re in heat over here.
And the best part? Pick up your copy today and relive these sure-to-satisfy stories.
You won’t be disappointed.

We’ve been on vacation for the past week, and it was relaxing and splendiferous, and just totally amazing. Actually, it was a stay-cation, which is when you stay in the same place, but pretend you’re on vacation. We had to go this route as we’re kind of tight on cash at the moment. But just because we weren’t in Rome or Venice or Switzerland or Paris doesn’t mean we couldn’t pretend! And it truly was fabulous. But now we’re back and ready to blog it out until our next stay-cation, which we’ve planned for a couple months in the future.
So, on to blogging and all these romance! We’ve been reading like crazy over our stay-cation, cause you know we love it, so we’ve got tons of reviews and posts to bang out in the next few weeks.
Get ready to read!

We are bouncing up and down with glee over here at Kristen Ashley’s new release, Lucky Stars. One might say we’re counting our lucky stars at having read it (Charlotte) or halfway through finishing (Alice) this adorable novel. We find ourselves randomly smiling at moments throughout the book, it’s that heartwarming.
So, we decided to dedicate a Foodie Friday to Lucky Stars. And what better food than scrambled eggs? They play a little role in the story and have a winning spot in one particularly smile-inducing scene. (You’ll love it, love it.)
And don’t we all know that while scrambled eggs look deceptively easy, there’s definitley an art to making them “perfect” or as near as one can get. We usually end up on the runny side or the so burnt it’s not even funny side. Until we found this delcious recipe (though we don’t use the sausage bits). It’s foolproof and the eggs come out so fluffy, it’s like eating a yellow cloud. (That came out sounding more appealing in our heads).
Anyhoo. Find the recipe HERE, courtesy of the Kitchin.
Just crack, whip, pour, skillet-ize, and enjoy!
Like we already said, the perfect book to read while chowing down tonight is Lucky Stars. It’s part of Ashley’s Ghost and Reincarnation series (don’t let that scare you off if you’re not a big paranormal person, the paranormal elements are light and only add nicely to the story) and it follows Belle and Jack on their romantic journey.
Here’s the low-down:
Belle Abbot (cute name, right?), “The Tiny Dynamo,” is a bona-fide hero and on top of that, rather shy of all this media attention she’s getting. She’s dating Miles, but then meets Jack (his brother, oops) at the mom’s birthday ball (they’re rich, of course) and it’s insta-sparks. (Don’t worry, Miles is sort of a douche, so we don’t feel bad for him). Then Belle discovers she’s got a problem, her and Jack’s little love bubble is interrupted, they get thrown back together, there are ghosts, two ghost hunters (Scottish, of course), a crazy couple of moms and grandmothers, and all manner of delicious brouhaha insues. Hold onto your hats.
It’s really an adorable novel, one of Ashley’s lighter spirited ones, and it takes place in England, which gives it a nice flair. It’s one to cuddle up to while the rains pouring outside, cozily eating your scrambled eggs in the kitchen with the radio playing some classic oldies station. Or something like that.

PS: Have an idea for a recipe for Foodie Friday? Fill us in!
So. We missed Foodie Friday this past week as we’ve been super (super!) busy looking for a new apartment, as our lease is dangerously close to running out. But that’s no excuse! So we’re sorry and we’re making up for it by establishing a one time only Salty Sunday to make up for it.
It’s a beautiful day here, so we’re feeling like laying in the tiny backyard on our loungers, eating something deliciously bad for us. And what’s more amazingly greasy and satisfying than an old English stand-by fish and chips? We prefer ours dripping in grease, with a bubbly, ice cold soda and lots of napkins handy.
So we just found out we’ve been nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award here on wordpress (who knew, right?)! And we’re crazy excited. Because awards are totally, compeltely, perfectly, stellar. And being nominated for an award just really makes your day (again, who knew?).
So, here are the rules and such:
1. Thank the blogger who nominated you.
2. Post 7 tidbits about yourself.
3. Nominate 15 other bloggers.
So off we go:
1. Thank you, thank you, (thank you!), Red Light Lady for the nomination! We are basically thrilled to pieces over here. And all y’all should go check out Turning Off the Red Light, her fabulous blog. Spoilers: it’s hawt. And we mean steamy. Perfect for a romance junkie who just doesn’t have the time to sink their teeth into a whole erotic novel at the moment. Just cruise on over to her blog for a quick taste.
It’s Friday again! Whew (!) the weeks are just flying by. As it’s Friday night and all, we’re thinking some bubbly (no, not that kind of bubbly…). We’re going to be knockin’ back these delicious homemade Italian sodas all night long.
This recipe is what we’d call medium. Not whip-’em-up easy, but not requiring souffle-level expertise either. And they are just darlin’. Who wouldn’t want to whip up two tall, skinny ones and clink glasses with your best girl friend while you sit out on the back deck, taking in the pretty evening and gabbing and gossiping till the stars come out?

You can find the full recipe, complete with comprehensive pics HERE.
And don’t worry if your sodas don’t exactly fizzle. Just crack open the real bubbly and go with it.
