Welcome to Recipe for Romance and HAPPY PRIDE MONTH!

This month I’m sharing all my LGBTQIA stories I’ve written so you can enjoy a little diversity in my romance.

Right now I have a sapphic tale of dino shifters in an anthology CRETACEOUS CRUSHES. This is the last couple of weeks that it’s available so grab your copy today!

You have until June 16th to get your copy where you can read FOSSIL BEDS BED & BREAKFAST, a sapphic dino shifter romance, where the little guy wins. To celebrate, we all need some gluten free crab surprise. Here’s a little excerpt from Persia Walker’s POV. (She’s a Parasaurolophus shifter) 

Leaving the Zon on June 16th!

Persia sipped her tea and watched the community awaken around her. Fortunately, she had time to organize people to speak up for both the community and the fossils under her care. There was no way they could let this development go forward, despite what the mayor wanted. She was well aware that Mayor Blatherton was best buds with Krassobaki—everyone was. Blatherton had made it a point to show their connection—so the townspeople would be facing a huge advocate of Krassobaki’s development.

But there are more of us than there are of them.

The phoneline clicked over and started ringing. Persia waited until someone picked up. “Hello?”

“Hey, Nozomi, it’s Persia. Do you have a moment to talk?”

“Persia! Good to hear from you. Yes, I’m in my off hour. What’s going on?”

“Have you seen the announcement of a public meeting here in Deadman over a resort expansion? I’ll send you a pic.” Persia put the call on speaker and opened the text app. “It’s scheduled for this Thursday at six thirty pm. Do you think you could make some time to gather a few of the grad students and come down to Deadman for the meeting?”

There was a short silence as Nozomi absorbed the image. “Yeah, I could do that. Why do you need me there? This seems like a Deadman town issue.”

“Did you see the map of the proposed expansion? It straddles the West Washakie River to mile marker seventy-seven on Highway 91.”

“Mile marker seventy-seven?” Nozomi was silent a bit longer. “The expansion includes all three of our sites as well as one of the Anthropology department’s sites.”

“Yup. And if they put that awful resort in there, all those sites will be destroyed for a rich man’s vanity and friends.”

Gluten-Free Crab Suprise

Do you need a quick, but tasty and fancy meal that everyone will enjoy? This is a good one and a recipe that’s been with my family since I was a kid. It takes eggs, onion, canned crab, and mayo, and you got yourself an quick dinner on busy work nights.

1 cup soft, gluten-free breadcrumbs

Break up crab and drop into a large mixing bowl. Add breadcrumbs, mayo, eggs, onion and olives. Mix together.

Add the milk to help make the mixture flow.

In a 8 or 9 inch square baking, greased baking pan, pour the mixture in and spread with a spatula.

Bake at 350 F (177 C) for 20-25 minutes. Allow to cool for five minutes before serving with a salad or cooked veggie.
