Happy New Year, Fresh Fiction folks! Thank you so much for inviting me to join
you today and for helping me celebrate the release of my debut fantasy romance,
EDEN is a little different than most fantasy romancesâ€”mainly because it
takes place in current times. Itâ€™s the first in a four book series and features
the one and only â€śland of creationâ€ťâ€”a realm parallel to our own and inhabited by
the powerful Myren race.
Itâ€™s a romance, so naturally, the hero (Eryx) is both honorable and handsome,
and the heroine (Lexi) is spunky and smart as a whipâ€¦but thatâ€™s not what I want
to talk about today.
Nope, Iâ€™d rather share one of the drinks created by one of the secondary
characters in the bookâ€”minus the Myren sedative that winds up inside it. (Yep,
thatâ€™s definitely a teaser. Needless to say, that sedative gets our hero into
some hot water with his woman.)
Besides, Christmas and New Year are over nowâ€¦time for you to move on to
something other than Eggnog and Candy Cane Cocktails.
Orla's Mint Mudslide Recipe
What you'll need:
-4 Â˝ oz Baileys with a Hint of Mint Chocolate
-1 Â˝ oz Kahlua
-7 Tbsp chocolate syrup, plus extra for rim
-3 cups ice
-Â˝ cup crumbled Oreo Cookies
How to pull it together:
1. Blend Baileys, Kahlua, chocolate syrup and ice in blender.
2. Dip glass rim in small amount of chocolate syrup then into Oreo crumbs.
3. Fill glass and garnish with straw. Serve immediately.
And thatâ€™s it! Now youâ€™ve got a decadent drink straight out of a fantasy book to
counter balance all those exercise resolutions. Who knows what might happen if
you drink it. You may end up as lucky as Lexi.
Have any favorite drinks youâ€™d like to share? Iâ€™m always on the lookout for fun
things to include in my next book and would love to see your comments below.
See you in paradise!
About UNEXPECTED EDEN
Most people believe Eden no longer exists. Lexi Merrillâ€™s about to learn theyâ€™re
wrong. A hard-working bartender with a self-sufficient backbone and a wary
nature, she knows pickup lines like a second language. So, when Eryx Shantos
barges into her world with too-smooth words and a body to back it up, she locks
up her libido and vows to keep her distance.
Eryx has other ideas. As king of the Myren race, Eryx is duty-bound to enforce
the laws preventing exposure of their existence to humans. Yet The Fates have
led him through his dreams to Lexi, a temptation he doesnâ€™t want to resist. The
questionâ€”is she Myren, or human, which makes her forbidden fruit?
When Eryxâ€™s nemesis tags Lexi as his next target, Eryx insists on taking her
home where he can keep her safe. Lexi had no idea â€śhomeâ€ť would mean the
one-and-only land of creationâ€¦or that sheâ€™d trigger a prophecy that could doom
her newfound race.
About Rhenna Morgan
Rhenna Morgan writes for the same reason she readsâ€”to escape reality.
Yes, her life rocksâ€”two beautiful little girls, a great husband, a steady job,
and the kind of friends that would take you out back if you hurt her. But, like
most women, sheâ€™s got obligations stacked tight from dusk to dawn. So, when the
world gets her down, she slips into somethingâ€¦less realistic.
Romance is a must. So is a steamy romp (or four). Nothing thrills her more than
the fantasy of new, exciting worlds, strong, intuitive men, and the sigh of, â€śOh
if only that could happen to me.â€ť
So, if youâ€™re picking up one of her books, expect portals into alternate realms
and men whoâ€™ll fight to keep the women they want. Romantic escape for the women
who need it.
