My Estranged Lover: New Addition to Middlemarch Shifters series #paranormal #romance

Welcome to Middlemarch, home of the Mitchell brothers and their friends. My Estranged Lover introduces Marsh and Caroline Rutherford.

Here is the blurb:

Mistakes are easy. It’s fixing them that can make or break a marriage.

Caroline Rutherford is at the end of her marriage tether. As much as she loves her husband, it’s time to admit defeat. Their long-term, love-at-first-sight relationship is no longer working, and they’re hurting each other and their two young sons by continuing the happy family farce.

Feline shifter Marsh Rutherford knows his relationship is in trouble, and he and Caroline, his human wife, haven’t shared a bed for months. He made a mistake at the start of their marriage, omitting to tell the truth, and now the secrets are strangling their happiness. Admitting the reality to himself is simple, but finding a solution to fix the problem is tearing him apart because reality has the potential to destroy what little trust remains between him and his wife.

Their future looks murky until a new opportunity presents itself—a fresh start for the entire family, a means for husband and wife to reconnect in and out of the bedroom. Caroline and Marsh agree to grasp the chance for a new future. Things are going well and their sex life has never been better, but those mysterious secrets hover in the background like pesky flies. Marsh must discover a way to make everything right because Caroline is his mate and the only woman who can make him happy. Losing her isn’t an option.

Warning: contains a sexy feline shapeshifter felled by a good woman. He’s confused and befuddled and makes mistakes, but it’s not too late, folks. We can fix this mess with love, with tears and a few humorous mishaps during the romantic journey. Fingers crossed…let’s go!

Travel: A Younger Me with Braids

20070821232009_bangui, car

This is another photo of a younger me. It was taken in the Central African Republic after the local ladies came to our campsite and braided our hair. I kept my hair like this for a few weeks, and when I finally took the braids out, I looked like the wicked witch of the west. Lots of frizz and hair sticking out in all directions!

Hubby got his beard braided, but that’s an entirely different post…

Have you ever had your hair braided?

Delicious Oatmeal Cookies #recipe

Oatmeal Cookies

This weekend I had a yearning for cookies. After checking through my favorite recipes, I decided I’d try a new one for oatmeal cookies. They turned out very well – the recipe is a keeper.

Oatmeal Cookies

Ingredients:

4 ounces brown sugar

3 1/2 ounces fine caster sugar

4 ounces butter

1 egg (large)

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 tablespoon milk

7 ounces plain white flour

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

salt

3 ounces of rolled oats (oatmeal porridge)

6 ounces of either – chocolate chips, raisins, chopped nuts (walnuts or pecans)  coconut or dried cranberries.

Method:

1. Cream the butter and sugar until pale and fluffy.

2. Beat in the egg, vanilla and milk.

3. Add your choice of the optional ingredients – I added chocolate, cranberries and a few walnuts.

4. Add the baking powder, baking soda, salt and flour and mix well.

5. Roll into walnut sized balls and flatten slightly. Place on greased baking tray.

6. Bake for 10 – 12 minutes in a pre-heated oven 180C/350F until lightly browned.

7. Leave on the baking tray for a few minutes before placing on a rack to cool. Makes aprox. 35 cookies.

Shelley’s Notes:

1. I cooked mine for ten minutes using fan bake. They turned out soft and a bit chewy.

2. Next time I’ll cook them slightly longer to see how they taste when they are a bit crisper. Just an experiment. This batch was delicious as they were.
