Dishin’ It doesn’t refer to food, but it did get me thinking. I’m not a foodie. I don’t even like to cook, although I do love to eat. Lacy Dahl, the heroine in my latest book, and I have that in common. On this Love and Murder Tour, I’ve covered just about every topic relating to the book except food. Maybe it’s high time for a few food facts. Food can be
an aphrodisiac, right?
The first food Lacy eats when she hits town is Mexican – tacos and a margarita.
The second evening in town she has dinner at the Brie and dines on grilled flatbread, asparagus appetizers, Teira Merlot and salmon.
(So far her food tastes match mine – funny how that happens when I create a character.)
But the lunch of roast beef sandwiches and red wine by a bubbling stream under a blue sky just might be the love potion that led to this scene:
She gasped at the contact and pushed his face firmer against her breasts. His hands moved under her blouse, to the front, and cupped her lace-covered breasts. He spread kisses across her collarbone, tasted her neck while he caressed the soft heat the lace did little to hide. The pulse below her ear ticked against his lower lip when he licked at her lobe. Her breath came fast and wet against his temple. He uncrossed his legs, stretching them on each side of her kneeling posture, and she leaned into him as they lowered onto the blanket, rolling to their sides in an embrace.
Lacy Dahl never questioned her past until the deaths of her adoptive parents and her husband. A husband who wasn't what he seemed. Her research uncovers secrets about the mother she never knew; secrets that dispute the identity of her father and threaten her life.
Sheriff Chance Meadowlark is still haunted by the murder of his wife and the revenge he unleashed in the name of justice. When he meets Lacy he is determined not to become involved, but their pasts may make that impossible. As they move closer to the truth, saving Lacy may be his only salvation.
Lacy begins to think the present is more important than her past...until Chance's connection to her mother and a murder spin her deeper into danger and further from love. Will the truth destroy Lacy and Chance or will it be the answer that frees them?
