“I used to be a full time teacher (11-13 year olds) then I became a full time mother. During that time I also found my passion for writing. Over the last ten years I have been studying the craft and putting myself out there.

My first trilogy came out in November, 2011. It has been a wild ride swimming in this indie river and I have loved so much of it. I have learned so many amazing things and met so many great people. It has totally solidified the fact I want to be a writer for as long as I possibly can!

I now have five books published and am working on a new YA Fantasy trilogy for 2013. I am having so much fun with it and can't wait to share it with everybody.

I am from New Zealand, but am currently living in China with my husband and two sons. It has been a culture shock, but it's pretty cool living in such a different country.” ~Melissa Pearl

The Durmont Diaries by Alessandra Torre

I had the wonderful change to read an advance copy of complete miniseries of The Durmont Diaries by Alessandra Torre.  This is the first thing I have ever read by Alessandra Torre and lets just say I am hooked.  I read them all in one sitting and the world disappeared around me. (Which is an awesome thing because I was watching The Food Network which gets me every time.)  This is a modern day Cinderella story with a twist.  I loved it!! Four and half stars out of five and I cannot wait to check out more books by Alessandra Torre. (I hope that I have some free reading time soon in order to do this.)

What is "The Durmont Diaries"?

Candace Tapers’ life finally takes an upward swing when Nathan Dumont, shipping heir and notorious playboy, sweeps her away to a lifestyle of wealth and privilege. But that life comes with strings, and she is soon pulled in directions she never expected, discovering secrets and ulterior motives in the man who shares her bed.
The Dumont Diaries is a four-part miniseries, each book roughly 60 pages long. The will be released a week apart from each other, starting on August 10th.

Release Dates and Pricing:
Book 1: To Have - August 10th, price: $.99
Book 2: To Hold - August 17th, price: $2.99
Book 3: Till Death - August 24th, price: $.99
Book 4: Do Us Part - August 31st, price $2.99

Book 1: To Have
I step on the dark stage, the cheap plastic of my platforms cutting into the top of my toes, every step bringing a pinch of pain. I keep my eyes down, following the flecks of silver on the unforgiving stage, waiting, exhaling a breath in controlled anticipation, my abs tightening. Then, the lights come on and I have almost three minutes to forget.

Welcome to my life, a drained bank account and six nights a week spinning around a greasy strip club pole. When salvation comes in the form of six feet of drop-dead-gorgeous, complete with a limo and a thick wad of cash, my stilettos run happily out the door to freedom. They say that money doesn’t buy happiness. But it does buy escape. Happiness is an overrated fairytale.


He leans forward and kisses me, and I suddenly don’t need the image of dollar bills to distract my mind. Everything floods the moment his lips touch mine.

Soft, sweet lips. Not what I expect from this commanding man. He brushes my lips softly, my lips parting for him, immediately wanting more. A groan slips from my mouth before I have a chance to capture it. His hands move up through my hair, gripping and pulling its strands. He tastes me, spreading my lips gently with his and dipping his tongue inside. I respond eagerly, my body taking over my mind, shoving it aside forcefully as a wave of arousal hits me. His touch turns harder, his mouth more demanding and he moves me backward, my heels skittering over tile, 'til the edge of the table is against me.

His hands grip my ass, squeezing it roughly, one hand on each cheek and lifts me easily, setting me on the table, the surface cool against my skin.

“Lay down,” he bites out against my mouth, taking one, last, torturous sweep with his tongue before he pulls off, stepping back and watching me.

I grip the glass top, sliding backward until my elbows are resting on the glass. I watch him, watch as he unbuttons his sleeves. He breathes hard, his eyes glued to mine and walks towards me, stopping a foot from the table.

Where can you buy this book?
You may purchase currently on Amazon.
I will post the other links once I receive them from the author. :D

Buffalo Chicken Mac and Cheese

I figured that since I haven't done a food blog in awhile that I would do one. This is an awesome recipe for Buffalo Chicken Mac and Cheese. In our household, we love buffalo chicken anything and this is such a good recipe. I made a few changes because a either I could not find the ingredient, did not feel like doing a step, or burnt the ingredient. So the changes I made were that I did not add the bacon cause I accidentally burnt it (next time I make this I am going to add it because everything is better with bacon right). The next change I made was that I did bread the chicken because I was lazy and hungry. I just browned the chicken in a pan and then coated it with the hot sauce. The last changed I made was that I used yellow cheddar instead of white cheddar because I could not find it at the store (in my town we just have a super small grocery store and I did not want to run to a bigger store to find it). It still turn out yummy.

Buffalo Chicken Mac and Cheese Ingredients: 3/4 pound applewood smoked bacon 1 pound chicken tenderloins 1/2 cup beer 1 pound dry elbow macaroni 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, plus 2 tablespoons, plus more for baking dish 1 tablespoon minced garlic 1/3 cup all-purpose flour, plus 1 cup 3 cups whole milk, plus 2 tablespoons 3/4 teaspoon salt 3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 3 cups grated white Cheddar, divided 3 cups grated mozzarella cheese, divided 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese 1 large egg 1 1/2 cups vegetable oil 2/3 cup hot sauce (recommended: Frank's Red Hot) 1 cup panko bread crumbs Sliced carrots and celery, for serving
Directions: Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Coat bottom and sides of a 13 by 9-inch baking dish with butter.
Arrange the bacon on an aluminum foil lined sheet pan and bake until crisp, about 22 minutes. Allow to cool and coarsely chop.
Put the chicken and beer in a large bowl and let marinate, at room temperature, for 20 minutes.
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over medium heat. Add the macaroni and cook stirring occasionally, until cooked al dente, about 6 to 7 minutes. Drain and reserve in a large pot or mixing bowl.
Melt 1/2 cup butter in a large saucepan over medium heat; whisk in the garlic and cook for 1 to 2 minutes or until golden. Whisk in 1/3 cup flour and cook until golden, about 1 minute. Whisk in 3 cups milk, the salt and the pepper, and bring the mixture to a boil, stirring frequently. Add 2 cups of the Cheddar and 2 cups of the mozzarella (reserving additional cheese for topping) and stir until melted, about 2 minutes.
Stir the cheese sauce, blue cheese and bacon into the macaroni until well combined; pour evenly into the prepared baking dish and smooth the surface.
Put the remaining 1 cup of flour in a medium-sized shallow mixing bowl. In another medium-sized shallow mixing bowl, add the remaining 2 tablespoons milk and the egg and whisk until combined. Drain the beer from the chicken tenderloins and dip into the flour to coat well, then dip into the egg mixture and back into the flour. Put on a plate until ready to fry.
Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Working in 2 batches, fry the chicken until golden brown and cooked through, about 4 minutes per side. Remove to paper towels to drain. Add the chicken and hot sauce to a large bowl and toss until well coated. Carefully slice the chicken into bite-sized strips. (Avoid knocking off the batter).
Evenly top the macaroni with the sliced chicken, and drizzle with additional hot sauce, if desired. Sprinkle remaining 1 cup of white Cheddar and the remaining 1 cup of mozzarella cheese over the top of the chicken and sprinkle with the panko bread crumbs. Melt the remaining 2 tablespoons butter and drizzle it evenly over the bread crumbs. Bake at 400 degrees F until golden brown and bubbly, about 25 to 30 minutes.
Cool 10 minutes before serving. Serve with celery and carrot sticks, if desired.
