#AFTH2015 w/ Sabrina Jeffries-- historical titles that *alas* never were...

Morning, yall! Today is an extra special treat. Sabrina Jeffries is joining us! Why is she extra special? Well...freaking awesome historicals for one. But she's also one of my local authors! I love having the local ladies on.

A few years back my friend Tonya made me start Jeffries' Hellions series. I finally caved after hearing she was an NC author and whew I loved it! Then one evening at a local event I looked down the row of tables and there was Sabrina. And I totally had a fan girl moment. lol Got my picture made and an autograph even. Was so fun! And I've continued to just adore her books. They're fun historicals with sexy heroes and very sassy and bold heroines who just delight. Anywho. I'll let Sabrina take over from here. She's prepared something gigglesnort-worthy for yall today. Check it out then hit those comments and leave her some love! ~anna

Whenever I title a book, I sometimes throw in a few joke titles to keep my agent and editor entertained. Here are my favorites, in a thing I like to call:

The Duke and His Baby Mama

Boinking a Baron

Rogering a Rogue

Royally Screwed

Big Earls Don't Cry

Never Look a Gift Duke in the Mouth

Never Diddle a Duke

Seduced by a Mama’s Boy

To Marry Any Old Tom, Dick, or Harry

Where Angels Fear to Thread (a quilting romance)

The Raunchy Rogue

The Heir and the Whore

Whoring Around with the Marquess

Dicking Around with the Countess

Sticking it to the Manwhore

I could go on and on . . . Do you have any good ones?

And a little food...

Okay, I know what you’re thinking. Supposedly nobody likes Brussels sprouts. But I contend that it’s because they’ve had them boiled to death, which is not the best version of them. I’ve converted many a Brussels sprouts hater with this wonderful recipe. I eat these hot or cold. As a snack. For breakfast or late at night. If that doesn’t prove how good they are, I don’t know what does.
1 pound fresh Brussels sprouts (you can do them with frozen, but they’re not nearly as good and you have to adjust the cooking time)
1/3 cup olive oil
20 garlic cloves (more, if you’re a fan of garlic)
Salt to taste
Pepper (if you like it) to taste
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Take the Brussels sprouts and halve them so they look like this.

Next, peel and trim the ends off the garlic (I buy peeled garlic to make this easier). 

Put all of it in a gallon Ziploc bag with the olive oil and seasonings. Shake well.

Spread out on a cookie sheet, allowing plenty of space between. 

Cook for 8 minutes, then stir and turn over and cook for another 8 minutes. 
You can do more if you want them really crispy.

Voila, you have delicious Brussels sprouts!

A Christmas gathering. A heated kiss. A hero set on exposing the atrocities of mill owners. An American heroine who owns a mill. Realizing you just kissed the enemy? #Priceless
