A look into…

~ About the Series ~

     Nestled within the hills of central Texas is a special ranch. A place that defies the laws of physics—that of time, space, and dimensions. It’s a place where normal morphs with the paranormal and supernatural. A place that seems to know what a person’s true desires and needs are, and then allows the right circumstances to occur to fulfill those wishes.
     Welcome to the Gateway Ranch.
     Your gateway to all things possible…

 

~ About the Book ~

   Katrina Foster has survived a life no one dreams about and most don’t want to know about. Escaping to a ranch in Texas she used to visit during the summers of her childhood and rekindling an old relationship with Dakota Remington, she hopes to leave the nightmare of her past behind her. At first, all seems well, but when strange things begin to happen, she wonders if history’s about to repeat itself.
 Dakota Remington has devoted his life to working at Gateway Ranch. He’s excited when Kat, his former sweetheart, returns and looks forward to reuniting with her. He finds she’s changed, though, and he’s not sure if it’s for the better. But he’s up for the challenge of the puzzle that is Kat.

 

 

~ Excerpt ~

The hard composite of her firearm shifted against her lower back.
     Well, if push comes to shove, I can protect myself. I’ll shoot the bastard if he shows up and tries anything. Eventually, her nerves calmed enough so she could move without feeling ill.
     She rose and stripped out of her clothes, put her weapon on the counter, then stepped into the shower. The hard and hot spray beat on her, helping her to feel something other than worry about potential rumors or her ex finding her. Kat bowed her head, placed her hands above the faucets. The water sluiced down her hair, cascaded in wide streams over her back. More time passed. Relaxed and clear headed, she finished her shower and was about to open the door when a thud and click sounded on the other side.
     Gripping the towel wrapped around her body, she snatched her weapon, opened the door, and cautiously looked out into the room.
     Dakota lounged on the bed, one leg bent, his hat propped on that leg’s knee. His hair stuck up in clumpy spikes. He ran a dirty hand through his dark brown locks.
     Kat released a pent-up breath, lowered her weapon, and placed the Glock on a counter next to the bathroom door. “How’d you get in here?”
     Tired eyes gazed at her. “I’m manager on duty while the Taggerts are away, ’member? Got a bunch of master keys.” Dak held up the ring of them. “You okay? When you didn’t come back, I got worried.”
     “I’m fine. I think the humidity got to me. Along with the dirt.”
     “Sure. The humidity. You tell me that you’re afraid a man is going to come after you, or rather us. We hear about the vehicle. You turn white as one of our ghosts and run off. Who was in the car, Kat?”
     “Hell if I know. I’ve been with you all day. I didn’t see the fancy black car or who was in it.”
     “You don’t have a clue as to who was in the car? I’m not buying it.”
     “Buy it or don’t.” She crossed her arms over her stomach. “I really don’t know. It could have been Nero. It could have been his goons. It could have been a neighbor of yours or one of the party guests Kent mentioned. I. Wasn’t. There. I. Didn’t. See.”
     Dakota flung himself off the bed and slammed the hat on his head. “Get dressed. You’ll come with me while I get cleaned up then we’ll go hang out in the rec hall.”
     “You know what, Dak? I appreciate the Boy Scout approach, and how you’re trying to get a merit badge for babysitting, but all I want is to lie down and take a nap.”
     “Kat, please. I’m hot, dirty, and tired. I don’t want to argue.” He strode to the door. “Get dressed so we can get going.” His gaze flashed darkly, roamed over her with an appraising glance. A slow grin tipped up the corner of his lips.

Down & Dirty in the kitchen with CR Moss #DownandDirty #D&D @CRMoss @romancerebels69

Today we have fellow Down & Dirty author CR Moss with us to share one of her favorite recipes, along with her story in the anthology, Keep You Safe!

 

A stalked artist. A sexy wrangler. She’d watched over him once upon a time. Now it’s his turn to keep her safe.

Keep Her Safe Blurb:

I’m Professor Arianna Perez, and I’ve been asked if I’ll ever trust, let alone love, another man again. After dumping an abusive boyfriend, I doubted I would. At least, that’s how I felt until fate had sexy wrangler, Kian Bishop, reappearing in my life in a way I never expected.

Against my better judgement, I fell hard for the cowboy, believing everything he said, including how he wanted to treat me like a queen and keep me safe. Little did I know, though, that the circumstances that’d brought us together could also tear us apart…and possibly claim my life.

Recipe Intro:

I have a thing for potatoes. I have thing for soups, too. Put them together and… Yum! So one day when I was craving some Olive Garden Zuppa Toscana, I started searching the web for a copy cat recipe. I came across this link: https://happyhooligans.ca/zuppa-toscana-olive-garden-knock-recipe/ The recipe looked easy enough, and the author’s claims seemed interesting. I figured I’d give it a go. And, OMG! So good! There was one day that I bought enough items to make a super huge batch, and I ended up having to grab one of my husband’s beer brewing pots to be able to fit the soup in to cook it. Luckily, the five-gallon pot fit on the stove! After we gorged ourselves on the soup, we froze the rest. It’s a nice surprise to find containers of soup out in the garage freezer when you’ve forgotten you have them. LOL! Below is the original recipe from the link I provided above. After the recipe I’ve shared my tweaks to it. Enjoy!

 

Recipe:

Zuppa Toscana

Ingredients:

    1 lb spicy ground sausage (I often just chop up 3 jumbo sausages.  I like the “medium-spicy” ones, but use mild if you’re opposed to heat)

    1 large white onion, diced

    4 slices fried, chopped bacon

    3 cloves garlic, crushed

    9 cups water

    1 cup heavy cream

    5 cubes of chicken bouillon (or as much liquid bouillon as you’d need for 9 cups of liquid water)

    3 large potatoes, peeled and cubed

    2 cups fresh kale, chopped

To make your soup:

Sauté your sausage in a large pot until it’s cooked through.  Drain the grease, and remove the sausage, and pop it into the refrigerator.  You won’t be needing it for a while.

Leave a little bit of grease in the pot (maybe a tbsp or so).

Now you’re going to fry your bacon in this pot.  You want to use the pot that you just cooked your sausage in because it has all that flavourful sausage goodness in there.

Sauté your bacon until it’s half-way cooked, and then add your onions and garlic, and continue to cook over LOW heat until the bacon is fully cooked and the onions and garlic are soft.

Add a bit of your water to deglaze your pot, and then add the rest of the water and the bouillon, and bring it all to a boil.

Toss in your cubed potatoes, and cook over medium heat until the potatoes are cooked.  This generally takes about a half-hour.

Stir in the cream.

Add your sausage and chopped kale, and heat through.

Serve your amazing Zuppa Toscana with a crusty loaf or my easy bread-machine dinner rolls.

 

My tweaks that help to save a bit of time…

I use a package of ground hot sausage (example: Johnsonville All Natural Fresh Italian Hot Ground Sausage) and cook it as one would do ground beef. Then I drain all the grease and put the meat aside. The onion is sweet. Bacon… Well, I like bacon, so I usually go overboard with it. I tend to buy the pre-cooked kind that you can microwave in a few seconds (example: HORMEL® BLACK LABEL® Fully Cooked Bacon). This I’ll cut up and throw in the pan, let it cook a bit and then add in the onion. As for the water & chicken bouillon, if salt/sodium is an issue, I found that doing about 4.5 cups of water and 4.5 cups of chicken broth works just as well. These amounts you can play around with as you make batches to see what fits your tastes. Potatoes – I’ve used regular baking potatoes, and I’ve used red potatoes with their skins left on (peeling red potatoes is not fun, IMO). Again, depending upon your tastes you can use what you want. Granted, if you go with red, since they’re usually smaller, I suggest cutting up about six to seven. The kale I use is pre-chopped, bagged organic. After I’ve done most of the prep work and got the soup going, I’ll work on plucking the hard, thick stems from the leaves and just use the leafy bits in the soup.

TRANSCENDING FIRE by Casey Moss @evernightpub @CRMoss

Please welcome author Casey Moss to my blog with her newest release Transcending Fire!

****

 

Hello! It’s been quite some time since I’ve had a release, and now I can say all that’s changed. A big thank you to my host for allowing me to visit today and share my story Transcending Fire. This erotic, futuristic, dystopian story based around different motorcycle gangs has had quite a journey to get to this point. Perhaps one day I’ll share the two-plus-year jaunt this story went through to find a home. Luckily, it finally has. Even with all the trials it went through, I still love this story. It’s one of my favorites that I’ve written, and one that I didn’t get tired of during the editing process either. Yay!
A man dealing with an Earth in chaos. A woman from an alternate universe hoping to find her destiny. Two motorcycle gangs and a real bad ass who wants to ruin everything. What’s not to like?

 

 

 

~ Blurb ~

 Hunter Macario wants one thing—a place to belong. When given an opportunity to solidify his position in the motorcycle club, Devil’s Thunder, he takes it.
 Dragon’s Clan member, Safaia King, believes she’s found the man from her people’s legend and her dreams. She has one goal, even if he’s in a rival club—to make Hunter hers and keep him safe so he can fulfill their destiny.
 After Hunter makes a huge mistake, he’s sent to where Safaia lives—an alternate universe called The Den. In this new world, sex, battles, and secrets abound. Hunter must survive The Den to right some wrongs or else he could lose everything he’s ever gained, including his home and Safaia’s love.

 

 

 

~ Adult Rated Excerpt ~

A wicked glint lit her eyes, and a playful grin spread across her face. She smoothed a hand down his hard chest. “I love the definition of your muscles, Hunter, how they shudder beneath my fingers when I touch you.” Inch by inch, she continued sliding her hand down his torso. She moved her hand between his skivvies and skin. Saf circled his cock and stroked him in time with the motions of his fingers within her. Desire pulsed through his body, setting it aflame. She pressed her face against his chest and playfully bit his pectoral as she rode his hand.
Adrenaline and arousal increased his breathing rate, and a warm buzz raced through him. The pull between them seemed so intense, undeniable, as if they had to be together or perish. He felt like one of the club’s customers addicted to black chip and needing a fix before he went crazy with want. And his drug of choice?
Safaia. Always and forever Safaia.
He wanted to eat her up. “I want to taste you. Lick up your juices and have you squirm beneath my face.” Hunter yanked down her jeans and repositioned her until her ass was at the edge of the boulder.
Sinking to his knees, he placed himself between her legs. Looking forward to tasting her sweetness and feel her softness after facing the harsh realities of his life, he traced a line of gentle kisses along her inner thigh from her knee to her pussy and then fastened his mouth on the sensitive folds between her legs. When he dipped his tongue into her canal, she shifted her butt to allow him better access. He reached up and snaked his rough hands under her shirt, concerned only for a moment whether she enjoyed or loathed the coarse touch of his dry, work-worn skin. She moved the cloth and her bra out of the way.
Seems she doesn’t mind.
Pushing away all his thoughts and focusing on her—his carnal treasure—Hunter kneaded her tits while he teased her clit. He loved the taste and scent of her musky flesh and lapped up her essence as he said he would.
She grasped his head, weaving her fingers in his hair. “Oh, great Universe. This is. This is.” She panted and grappled with his locks as a low, deep moan rolled from her throat. “I think I’m going to come.”
The first night they’d met, their lovemaking had been hot and fast, more wham bam thank you than let’s linger and relish this. This time, though, he wanted to savor her, make her feel all sorts of naughty pleasure as he took his own.
Saf bucked and tried to scooch away, but he grabbed her hips and kept her from moving away from him. Unrelenting, he tongue fucked her. She struggled and wriggled, but he continued his assault, plunging his tongue in and out of her, licking up her wetness, and nipping at her clit. Safaia pressed the back of his head and lifted her ass. Spasms racked her body. She cried out his name.
Bringing her to orgasm thrilled him, but his selfish streak came forward. He wanted to enjoy her and feel his own pleasure, so he rose, stepped back, and removed his jeans.
