Masquerade Excerpt

Masquerade is in the Halloween Heat VI Etopia Press Anthology:

“Your greatest desires beckon…”

When Sydney Porter opened the elegant, gold-embossed invitation, she couldn’t believe her eyes. The Illuminatus Masquerade Ball held every year on Halloween was an exclusive event. So exclusive, that the attendees were not willing to discuss it afterward. She’d known a few friends who’d received invitations in the past and she’d waited with bated breath the next day for juicy details but was always told the same rehearsed statement. Hushed tales of decadent aphrodisiac foods, décor that could have been handpicked by Aphrodite herself, and elaborate costumes that were made from the finest fabrics was the only information she could get out of them. Nor would they divulge how they got the invitation.


Masquerade is available in the Halloween Heat VI Anthology from Etopia Press.  Be sure to check out the other three great stories in Halloween Heat VI: Party Games by Mina Carter, Punished by the Cowboy by Sue Lyndon and Unmasked by Brooklyn Wilde.  It is available at the following retailers:

All Romance® Authors Get Passionate in the Kitchen – Press Release

The following press release is from All Romance eBooks:
All Romance® Authors Get Passionate in the Kitchen

At All Romance® eBooks (ARe®) romance authors have donned their aprons and gotten down and dirty in kitchens across the globe, all to share the love of food for the new ARe-exclusive Passionate Cooksdigital cookbook.

Clearwater, FL (PRWEB) (PRWEB) October 01, 2012

Food and love have a long association, but today digital romance retailer All Romance takes the concept one step further with the release of the free eBook Passionate Cooks, filled with over 150 recipes from those who know love best—romance authors.
Contributors include veteran writers, as well as debut authors. There are traditionally published, those with digital-first publishers, and those who are self-published, all sharing their culinary favorites.
The cookbook includes New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Mari Carr’s “Wild Irish” Cream of Crab Soup recipe. Western GBLT author BA Tortuga contributes a dish as spicy and colorful as the straight-shooting author herself with Ranch Hands—a blend of Tabasco, salsa, onions and cumin, added to pinto beans, eggs, Canadian bacon and cheddar cheese and served in a tortilla. And for those of you who are feeling extra creative and sexy, there’s the Avocado Dip that doubles as body paint from mystery writer Marcia James.
Some recipes are simple, such as Down Home Mac & Cheese, while some are more exotic, such as Spicy Shrimp Risotto. There are even some gluten-free selections, like the Sweet and Spicy Gluten-Free Lo Mein-ish Noodles from erotica author Sommer Marsden. And a few are perfectly timed for a Halloween, such as Tracey H. Kitt’s Gamberi del Diavolo or Shrimp of the Devil.
Much like romance novels themselves, the dishes range from spicy to sweet. From desserts with historical overtones, such as Early American Ginger Cutouts, to those with a more modern and exotic flare, like the Hot Cha Cha Cha Chipotle Cake, there’s something to satisfy the taste of every food lover.
The enthusiasm of the contributing authors has been overwhelming. “One author has created a Passionate Cooks apron, bag, mouse pad and bookmarks as a giveaway to promote the launch,” said Julie Cummings, ARe’s manager of marketing and publicity. Cummings is speaking of author Rhonda Laurel, who contributed the recipe for Blissful Banana Pudding Trifle.
The October release of this 250-page free download will be accompanied by, among other events, guest blog posts by the authors at ARe Café, and photos of the dishes posted at ARe’s Pinterest account. Readers can keep track of the happenings on Twitter at the hashtag #AReCooks or on the Passionate Cooks Facebook Page at
