Bedeviled & Beyond Continues! Book 8 is available for Pre-order Now



Coming in September!! Continue the journey with Astra’s sister Darma and the Sexy Slayer.

Discovery, passion and trickery…

Astra Q Phelps’ sister Darma has always lived in her sister’s shadow. And what a shadow it was… Darma was the light issue in a marriage of good and evil, her feet firmly planted on terra firma. Astra was the butt-kicking dark spawn walking the edge between good and evil. (Her words, not mine.) But, though Darma came into her magic kicking and screaming, when it hit…it hit hard. Now that she’s running her sister’s demon quashing business alongside the sexy Slayer, she’s got more problems than she can handle. She’s all itchy and twitchy, borderline out of control and she can’t tell if the sparks that keep flying all around her come from the magic she really doesn’t want to use…or the sexy halfling with the bad boy ways, who just refuses to keep his hands off her. Add to the mix a scary new client with a deadly problem, and it’s a whole cauldron of trouble for a good girl to handle. Only problem is, Darma isn’t sure she’s up for the task. Hades, she’s not even sure she’s a good girl anymore!

A Yummy Hawaiian Recipe and a Delicious Book set in Hawaii

alohahoneybun-banner-600x200If you’re like me, the most you’ve experienced of Hawaii are the wonderful books and television shows whose plots are based there and the pictures or stories about it online. You might also have experienced sweet Hawaiian bread or rolls that are sold at the grocery. But have you ever made your own? Here’s your chance to try!


Nothing defines a culture like its food. And anybody who knows me knows that I’m all about the food! So just for fun, I thought I’d include a recipe for a delicious Hawaiian specialty that many of us have tried in a commercial form, but most probably have never tried to make ourselves. Hawaiian sweet bread is as delicious as it is easy to make. I don’t know about you, but I plan to make this a staple in many special meals to come.


7 to 7-1/2 cups all-purpose flour

3/4 cup dried potato flakes

2/3 cup sugar

2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

1 cup milk

1/2 cup water

1/2 cup butter, softened

1 cup pineapple juice

3 eggs

2 teaspoons vanilla extract



Combine 3 cups of the flour, potato flakes, sugar, yeast, salt and ginger in a large bowl. Heat the milk, water, butter and pineapple juice to 120°-130° in a small saucepan and then add the mixture to the dry ingredients, beating just until moistened. Add eggs and beat them until smooth. Beat in the vanilla. Finally, stir in enough of the remaining flour to form a soft dough.

Turn the dough onto a floured surface and knead it until smooth and elastic (6-8 minutes). Place the dough into a greased bowl and turn it to grease the top. Cover the bowl and let the dough rise in a warm place until it’s doubled in size (11/4 hours).

Punch the dough down and turn it onto a lightly floured surface, dividing it into thirds. Shape each third into a ball and place the dough balls into three greased 9-in. round baking pans. Cover and let the dough rise again until it’s doubled (45 minutes).

Bake at 375° for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Cover loosely with foil if the top browns too quickly. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool. Yield: 3 loaves (12 wedges each).


alohahoneybun-500Aloha Honeybun!

Now that you have some tasty Hawaiian bread to nibble on, you might want to fix yourself a hot cup of coffee or tea and settle down with a good book based in the islands. Might I suggest a title for you? LOL

In a battle between evil and Honeybun, tall red and sexy will always win.

Alfric and Pleasance are getting married on the romantic and beautiful island of O’ahu! Or are they? Violence in the rainforest has a way of upsetting even the best laid plans. And when that violence comes a little too close to home…the brothers might need to exchange their lei for a slightly more deadly form of body ornament. Invasion, war and centuries of the best and worst nature can hand them…Hawaii’s overcome it all. But the people of the beautiful islands have never experienced the Honeybuns. That’s a whole new kind of natural event!
