Hello, Fresh Fiction folks! Thank you so much for inviting me to join you today and
helping me celebrate the release of the fifth book in my Southern
Charm series. FOLLOWING THE LAW tells the story of Sheriff Robin Burke and IT
geek Beau Courtenay.
As with all of my books, there's always mentions of food. Everyone has to eat, right?
Robin is hopeless in the kitchen. He blows up any type of frozen meal. Beau has a wee
addiction to sugary cereals â€“ Froot Loops, Lucky Charms and Coco Puffs, but knows how
to cook. After Robin helps him deal with a certain pest at his home, Beau offers to
whip together a simple lo mein dish (with the addition of bacon â€“ because all boys
love their bacon).
Beau's Bacon n' Chicken Lo Mein Recipe
What you'll need:
- 1/2 pound thick sliced bacon, diced
- 1/2 pound skinless chicken strips, cut into thin strips
- 2 tablespoons canola oil, divided
- 1 medium carrot, cut into thin 2-inch strips
- 1 small onion, sliced thin
- 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
- 1 teaspoon minced fresh gingerroot
- 1 cup snow peas, sliced
- 4 scallions, sliced, white and green separated
- 1 can (8 ounces) sliced water chestnuts, drained
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 3 tablespoons cornstarch
- 3/4 cup cold water
- 1/2 pound lo mein noodles or thin spaghetti, cooked and drained
How to pull it together:
1. In a large skillet, cook bacon until crisp; remove to paper towels to
drain. Discard drippings. In the same skillet, stir-fry chicken in 1 tablespoon oil
until no longer pink, about 2 minutes. Remove chicken and pan juices; keep warm.
2. In the same skillet, saute the carrot, onion and ginger in remaining oil
for 3 minutes. Add the snow peas, white parts of scallions, mushrooms, water
chestnuts and garlic; cook and stir 2 minutes longer.
3. Stir in soy sauce and chicken with pan juices. Combine cornstarch and cold
water until smooth; add to the pan. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or
until thickened. Stir in bacon and noodles/spaghetti.
And that's it! A simple lo mein dish done in 30 minutes, unless you have a sexy
novice like Robin trying to help the chef. Depends on his version of helping too. I
hope you enjoy!
Hugs and best wishes from Shore Breeze!
A quiet one, Nicole Dennis curled up with the latest book of a favorite
author. Since the beginning, there were these characters in her head, worlds wanting
to be built on paper, and stories wanting to be told. She began writing during class
and continues to this day. Now she can let others into her imagination and worlds
that always celebrate the love between two or more people within LGBT, paranormal,
During the day, she works in a quiet office in Central Florida, where she also makes
her home, and enjoys the down time to slip into her imagination. She is owned by a
semi-demonic tortie calico, affectionately known as Fat Cat.

Can a sheriff untangle the mysteries invading his town and those which surround
the local IT geek whoâ€™s captured his attention?
Sheriff Robin Burke is pissed off. His quiet seaside town is troubled with all kinds
of problems. Looking for the man who tried to poison Samuel Ashford is high on his
priority list, but there is more in store. When someone he crushes on returns, he
hopes to ignite his non-existent love life.
Returning from London, Beau Courtenay discovers his home has been invaded by his
troubled half-brother. Dealing with the chaos, he is busy with a massive backlog of
work and renovating the entire Southern Charm system. He finds another troubling
detail in the form of random USB interfaces around Shore Breeze that donâ€™t belong
there. And thereâ€™s also the allure of the sheriff distracting him and threatening to
reveal his darkest secret.
What will happen when Robin connects his suspect to the handsome IT geek with the
delicious British accent and tight ass? Can Beau help the sheriff follow the law to
prosecute anyone who dares to attack their beloved town?
