All it takes is one mistake to be marked. One bite, she crosses a line…into forever.
Diana Hambre’s body is blazing. For days this leopardess shifter has spun through a body-searing heat
cycle. Alone. Her senses reel when Shawn Barclay, her boss, walks into her reserved room at the
Downtown Den, a stud club for shifters. He gives Diana a choice: spend the evening with him, give into
his every desire, and she’ll find out what it means to quench her heat-crazed thirst—or try her luck with
a stranger, one of the club bangers.
Shawn hates when his back is against the wall. One sip of Diana’s pheromone-laced scent is enough to
force his alpha hand. The tables have turned and it’s Diana’s back he wants up against a wall, or any
other surface for that matter.
As the moon rises toward midnight, Shawn and Diana come to understand the difference between sex
and bonding. For a night, neither of them resist their primal instincts, blindly giving into carnal desire.
Her wild nature fights being subdued and she risks spontaneously shifting without warning.
Now, bearing Shawn’s bite marks, she can’t simply walk away from him; not when he has the means to
teach her to harness her leopardess nature. Shawn accepts the challenge of training Diana to control her
untamed cravings. Employing every method available in and out of the bedroom, he discovers he’s on
the verge of ensnaring himself in the process.
Warning: Erotic scenes hot enough to peel paint.
Susan gave us a yummy recipe for Salmon and I being a lover of all things seafood, was excited to see this. I can’t wait to try it!!
Smoke Salmon Smears served with shots of chillded vodka
Vodka is in the freezer, right?
Now for the rest.
- 1 cup cream cheese, soften by allowing to come to room temperature
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
- 2 teaspoon lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon chopped capers
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
- 8 slices smoked salmon
- 4 bagels, halved
- Butter, softened (optional)
Garnish with 1 small red onion and peeled cucumber, thinly sliced
Take 2 slices of the salmon in a cross pattern and take a dollop of the cream cheese mixture, place in the center of the cross. Easy now, simply pretend you are doing laundry by folding the flaps over to form a cream cheese packet. Your packet should be about 2 by 2-inches wide. Keep going with the remaining ingredients. Spread each bagel half with some softened butter. I personally don’t but some people do like the combination. Place the packet on a bagel half and top with red onion and cuc slices. Top with the other half of the bagel to make a sandwich or serve naked. Your imagination.
Serve with some sides. Say Greek olives, tomatoes drizzled with olive oil, salt and a dash of balsamic vinegar, grilled asparagus and oh yeah, a shot of chilled vodka in a tumbler.
