February 9, 2021
Enemies to lovers… opposites attract! How can these two possibly fall in love? We trust Lorraine Heath to take us on a wonderful journey in SCOUNDREL OF MY HEART. And this recipe for Strawberry Delight is the perfect treat for them to share together… And don’t forget to come back tomorrow for another wonderful recipe!
SCOUNDREL OF MY HEART is an enemies to lovers story.
He finds her irritating. She considers him a scapegrace.
He dreams of owning a club. She dreams of inheriting her grandmother’s cottage by the sea.
He needs funds to see his dream to fruition. She needs to marry a duke to gain her inheritance.
He wants to ignore her. She needs his help to gain the duke’s attention.
He betrays her. She wants her revenge.
But when his father is found guilty of treason, and Lord Griffith Stanwick’s family loses everything, including their place in Society, he takes a detour through the darker corners of London and emerges a changed man, a man to be reckoned with. A man Lady Kathryn Lambert desires. Soon she must decide if giving up her inheritance is worth a chance at love.
While it’s not a historical recipe and might have been a challenge to make in 1874, for Valentine’s Day, I think my characters would want something red and yummy that they could easily spoon out and feed to each other. This dish can be served as a salad or a dessert, and also makes an attractive addition to Christmas dinner.
1 large package of strawberry Jello
1 cup hot water
2 10 oz pkg thawed strawberries
1 small can crushed pineapple, drained
3 medium bananas
1 cup chopped nuts
Dissolve jello in hot water. Add remaining ingredients. Pour 1/2 of mixture into dish and chill until firm.
Soften 8 oz cream cheese and blend with 1 cup sour cream. Pour this over the chilled mixture. Then spread remaining mixture over this and chill.

I don't have a favourite trope but maybe when two people are
not necessarily enemies, but on opposing sides of an issue,
and resolve their differences. This way the reader gets to
understand both sides of the story. Thanks for opening this
