Dark Sun, He’s almost an angel and she’s pure temptation, was released through Cobblestone Press.
In Dark Sun, Brandi is a chef trying to transform Dark Shadows bar into a five-star restaurant. Unfortunately someone tries to burn the place down. Her firefighter ex—always happens to be at the scene and so is her new beau, Niall Howard.
Niall is a Guardian Squad Chancellor testing Mark Kepler before he becomes a full fledge Guardian Squad member sending evil souls to hell or to repent at a Weigh Station. Part of Mark’s assessment is to revisit his old grounds, which brings us to Dark Shadows a pub he used to own but sold to his friend Brandi Sedgwick.
Niall is catapulted back in time to his marriage to Fiona, Brandi reincarnated. He wants her, but does she want him?
In an attempt to woo Brandi, Niall prepares an old Irish Love in My Heart Potato Soup: Here is the recipe…you won’t be able to find this anywhere but here…shhh it’s a secret.
♥ 1 tablespoon(s) olive oil ♥3 ounce(s) thinly sliced prosciutto, chopped ♥2 clove(s) garlic, crushed ♥4 medium Idaho potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes ♥3 cup(s) chicken broth ♥1/3 cup(s) chopped fresh basil ♥2 cup(s) half-and-half (I use 2% as a sub to make it less calories but it’ll have a thinner broth) ♥1/4 teaspoon(s) salt ♥1/8 teaspoon(s) white pepper ( I use black and it works just as well, but then I get inspiration for creatures of hell in a variety of ways :> ) ♥ 2 tablespoon(s) grated Parmesan cheese
How to mix the love in:
- Heat olive oil in a large heavy saucepan over medium-high heat. Add prosciutto and sauté, stirring frequently, until crispy, about 5 to 7 minutes. Drain on paper towels; set aside.
- Add garlic, potatoes and broth to pan; bring to a boil and reduce heat to low. Cook for about 12 to 15 minutes, or until potatoes are soft, stirring occasionally. Add chopped basil and simmer for another few minutes.
- Remove from heat. Dump into a blender of use a hand mixer (in the pot) to purée the soup until smooth. If you used a blender pour the contents back into the stock pot. Add half-and-half, salt, pepper and cheese. Stir until well blended (if needed put back onto burner for a few minutes).
- Ladle soup into bowls and sprinkle with the prosciutto. Garnish with basil sprigs.
You’ll have to read the story to see if Niall’s magical mix convinced Brandi to fall in love with him. Let me know if you try the potion on someone you want to captivate.
