Sweet Potato Casserole & What Happens Under the Mistletoe

Today I am sharing Sweet Potato Casserole & What Happens Under the Mistletoe . This scrumptious casserole dish is one that I serve for Thanksgiving and Christmas. It is to die for. It’s like dessert for dinner. Years and years ago when I worked in the corporate world we use to have pot lucks, and a gentleman from the IT department brought in this dish, and then was gracious enough to share the recipe. I will forever be thankful. Enjoy and be sure to check out my thoughts on What Happens Under the Mistletoe, this month’s book recommendation.

How the Scoundrel Seduces by Sabrina Jeffries

I have been thoroughly enjoying the Duke’s Men series by Sabrina Jeffries with its regency romances and suspenseful mysteries. How the Scoundrel Seduces shares investigator Tristan Bonnaud’s story and that of a young woman we met in the last pages of When the Rogue Returns. Tristan is swoon-worthy and I adored seeing him fall. How the Scoundrel Seduces brings us laughter, romance and suspense while tying up some threads from previous books. I consumed this in a single evening and was left pining for the next book.

How to Woo a Reluctant Lady by Sabrina Jeffries

If you have followed my blog for the past year then you are well aware of my love for Sabrina Jeffries and her Hellions of Hellstead Hall series with its strong characters and their mischievous, meddling Grandmother. How to Woo A Reluctant Lady offers us Lady Minerva Sharpe’s tale, one of two sisters in the Hellions family and oh lord is she snarky, quite witted and in over her head. While each can be read as a standalone, there is an overall mystery ARC that is threaded throughout and one I quite enjoy. Three world review: funny, smexy and suspenseful.

What the Duke Desires by Sabrina Jeffries

Sabrina Jeffries knows how to weave a tale filled with swoon-worthy men, strong-willed woman and suspense. Her new series The Duke’s Men starts of strong with What the Duke Desires the first book in the series. Her tale captured me in the first few pages and kept me enthralled till the end. A tormented Duke, a lost brother, a bastard daughter and a pretend marriage all created a suspenseful, romantic tale as we traipsed around Europe. Three word review: romantic, suspenseful and hot.

A Hellion in Her Bed by Sabrina Jeffries

Sabrina Jeffries never fails to wow me. I am completely in love with the Hellions of Halstead Hall and this novel book two in the series brings us Lord Jarret Sharpe’s tale. I love when a book grabs you in the first few pages and this one certainly did. Filled with wagers, romance and self-discovery Jarret’s tale was delicious.

The Truth About Lord Stoneville by Sabrina Jeffries

One of my favorite go-to-feel-good genres is historical fiction. It can be a romance or a mystery, I love them all. When Danielle @Bookwhore shared The Truth about Lord Stoneville on her blog, I knew this was the perfect series for me. I adore series; in fact I am an addict. My favorite are the type that can also be read as standalone. They usually involve one family or a group of friends and each tale tells one character’s story.
