Hello and welcome to Romance Recipes where I am happy to introduce you to a new author and a new recipe! Two of my favorite things! Today I am bringing you author, Sheri Fredricks, and her recipe for Deliciously Easy Pumpkin Pie Martini along with an introduction to her paranormal romance, Continuum. Please join me in welcoming Sheri and savor her recipe for Pumpkin Martinis as you read about her new book!
Deliciously Easy Pumpkin Pie Martini
Allow me for a moment to tantalize your taste buds. Imagine sipping the luscious deliciousness of silky smooth pumpkin pie with frothy, rich whipped cream from a gorgeous brown-sugar rimmed martini glass. Are you with me? You’ll impress your family and friends during the holidays with this quick and easy-to-make cocktail.
1. On a plate, mix together brown sugar and pumpkin pie spice. On a separate place, pour a little maple syrup. Dip the rip of your martini glass into the syrup and then dip the rim into the spiced sugar.
2. Pour a shot (or maybe a wee bit more!) of chilled Whipped Cream Vodka into the martini glass.
3. Fill the rest of the glass with Pumpkin Egg Nog. Carefully stir and add a dollop of whipped cream for an attractive garnish.
This yummy cocktail can take the place of dessert at your grown-up’s table. A non-alcoholic version is equally simple to make by omitting the vodka and using a dash of vanilla extract. You decide if the kids need a pretty, sugar rimmed glass!
Privilege came at a price for the voluptuous Princess Evianna. Life as a royal was a lonely existence for the girl who grew up forbidden to interact with villagers. Relief from solitude and sexual frustration came in the form of fantasies she’d spun about an unknown prince who would rescue her from a daily requirement of AA batteries and her erotic imagination.
Cursed by a spiteful witch to remain in the form of a frog, Tad spent the past fifty-five years banished to a brook and dodging hungry predators. Resigned to live out the remainder of his amphibious life in a cold-blooded existence, he’s surprised when the visiting princess understands his croaked words.
The princess needs the frog to fulfill her sexual desires. The frog needs the princess to break the evil spell.
What could possibly go wrong?
The heat of her hand beat warm and soft beneath his cold-blooded belly. A former human-turned-frog fellow could get used to something like this, he thought.
Ascending the stairs with sure footsteps, she carried him in one hand and the golden plate of toast in the other. Along the way, they passed a chambermaid who pressed herself flat against the stone wall, arching away from him.
The corners of Princess Evianna’s mouth quirked up at her servant’s reaction, but she said nothing until they arrived in her room and she’d shut the door behind them.
As far as bedrooms for royalty went, the décor suited a princess. Standard issue over-sized bed with rolling canopy above. Yards of silk swag hung from the ceiling-high four posters and draped in soft pleats to the floor. There were two large, ivory colored dressers, a matching armoire, and a quaint seating arrangement on a circular floral rug designed to break up the monotony of wasted space.
All of it tastefully prettified in hues of girly lavender and backgrounds of pearly white.
Now that she’d carried him inside the bedroom, Tad pondered his next step. “It’s stuffy in your room. Could you open a window?”
Princess Evianna set him down on the regal bed next to her golden plate of toast and slid open a few windows to catch the morning breeze. “Anything else?”
Silly question, Tad thought. Does a frog swim? “Are you hungry?”
She eyed the lightly buttered toast but didn’t appear interested. “Not really.”
“I wasn’t talking about food.”
Curious blue eyes gazed down at him, no longer filled with dread or revulsion. She sat next to him, the mattress sinking beneath her weight. “If not food, then what?”
“Yesterday at the creek, you played with yourself and really enjoyed it. I also relished watching you, Princess.”
The tip of her pink tongue darted out to wet her bottom lip and her cheeks colored. Interest sparked within the depths of her gaze. “I didn’t realize you were there, or watching me for that matter.”
He smiled, hoping she understood the movement of his frog lips when he did. “When I saw how wet you made yourself, how your hard clit poked up in need, I’d never seen a more beautiful sight.” If only he’d been a man, it would have been he who brought her to orgasm instead of her hand. “I came to your castle with the hopes you would play with yourself again, knowing this time that I watch.”
“I don’t know…” Additional color flushed her face.
So did a tiny sinful smile.
Whether it came from the warmth of the room, or a hot mental images of Princess Evianna getting herself off, the cold blood in Tad’s frog body thickened as lust moved in.
Yes, he wanted to watch this beautiful, full-figured woman pleasure herself. Yes, inside his hideous frog body thrummed the soul of a real man. More than that however, a connecting pull drew them together, regardless if she admitted it or not.
“Let me be the prince in your fantasy. I’ll talk, you listen. Your hands can do the rest.”
Her smile grew and her gaze darted across the room. “Let me lock the door first.”
