Celebrity Crushes

aragorn_posterI don’t have celebrity crushes on actors or famous people. I admire people for the way they live their lives, but crushes, that’s just not in my DNA.

But, I do have obsessions with certain TV programs, an actor’s role, movies and/or books. If I get hooked on a show or a book series, then I watch or read it until I can’t get my hands on another one.

The first obsession I had was Dr. Doolittle – I read every one of Hugh Lofting’s books – that was followed by The Lord Of The Rings and then, all of Agatha Christie’s murder mysteries. TV programs – Dark Shadows – I remember coming home from school, anticipating 4:00 – luckily I was able to monopolize the TV at that time! Star Trek came later, my favorite The Next Generation.

I can crush on an actor’s role – and thinking about it – John Thornton of the BBC’s North and South would be one crush I had on a character. Oh, and Aragorn in LoR – yes definitely Aragorn – a sensitive and poetic kick-ass warrior.

Peace and Love,

Pride will be the death of him.

When psychic Nate Coleman dreams of a murder, he knows it’s a premonition. He can’t forget the image of his ex-lover with a bullet hole through his chest. Nate has no choice but to confront William and face the skeptical scientist’s ridicule.

Dr. William Ryner doesn’t believe in what he can’t prove. When Nate comes back into his life, it’s not to rekindle their love, but to bring up more of that mumbo jumbo that split them apart.

Despite William’s refusal to listen, Nate can’t ignore the premonition. And, William can’t ignore Nate. Before the gunman strikes, William must either trust in Nate’s ability

There was Dark Shadows before True Blood

Dark Shadows

Dark Shadows! That was one of my favorite TV series when I was in, er, do I have to say when I watched it? It was a dark Gothic soap opera – vampires and beautiful women and curses and lost loves.

The story of Dark Shadows begins with newly hired governess Victoria Winters arriving at Clowned, the Collins’ estate in Collinsport, Maine in search of her mysterious origins. She soon is caught up in the strange events and mysteries that seem to surround the Collins family.
Eventually, the Collins’ “cousin from England”, Barnabas Collins, arrives and takes the show in a new direction; his vampire curse introduces a new history of the Collins family. Part of this revised history is the popular character of the witch Angelique whose jealously led to the tragic death of Barnabas’ great love Josette and who placed the curse upon Barnabas.

Thou shall not kill.

For archangel Razi-el, he had no choice. He would break God’s commandment again if it were to save Uri-el from a demon’s talons. Yet even God’s most trusted archangel cannot avoid punishment. No longer Razi-el, he is now Izar, a Protector sworn to kill for the angels.

When a Protector kills an angel, Izar is summoned to work alongside Uri-el to capture the killer. Izar is shocked when his bloodlust spikes hot for the archangel. He knows better than to go after forbidden fruit. Refusing to give in to temptation, he ignores his body’s tempestuous arousal for Uri-el until a heated argument turns his blood into molten lust.

As they rush to find the killer, their passion plays into the demon’s plan. Izar will have to make a choice between life and death if he is to save Uri-el again.

Devilish drinks for an angel

Shmokin Cocktail!I’m not much of a cook – just ask anyone in my family, and they would agree! So instead of food, I’m going to post two cocktails that I’m considering for my New Year’s Day party. Both of these drinks were inspired by one of my scenes in Sins of Lust – my paranormal m/m romance.

Now angels can’t hold Earth liquor too well, and Uri-el is no exception. And, I’m giving away a scene here so if you don’t want to read further… There’s a scene where Uri is at a bar and of course, being an otherworldly creature, the bartender is enamored with him. He insist on making him a drink called Angel Face. Yes, it’s really a cocktail I found on the Internet. Now Izar is irritated that the bartender can’t seem to take his eyes off of Uri and mutters that the appropriate drink for Uri is really a Devilish Daiquiri!

Here are the recipes for both of these wonderful concoctions!

Angel Face
(drink recipe from Diffords Guide: http://www.diffordsguide.com/cocktails/recipe/521/angel-face)

1 shot of dry gin
1 shot of calvados
1 shot of apricot brandy liqueur

Best glass to use: Martini glass and garnish with a very thin apples slice.

Hot Devilish Daquiri
(recipe from Drinks Mixer: http://www.drinksmixer.com/drink4333.html)

1 1/2 cup water
1/4 cup sugar 2 cinnamon sticks
8 whole cloves
6 oz frozen lemonade concentrate
6 oz frozen limeade concentrate
1/2 cup light rum

In 2 qt. microproof casserole, combine hot water, sugar, spices, and concentrated juices. Stir, then cook on HI 5-6 minutes or until mixture boils. Heat rum in microproof container on HI for 30 seconds. Ignite and pour over hot beverage. Ladle into punch cups for serving.

It’d be pretty cool to light the punch bowl on fire but be careful!
