Whet Your Appetite!
By Hailey North
Here’s one of her recipes she yearns to share with the mysterious and sexy Tony Olano—once she figures out how to get him to notice her. (As you’ll see when you read BEDROOM EYES, Tony has more than noticed this hot babe!)
One plush blanket
One pack of playing cards
One box of your favorite brownie mix (Penelope prefers Ghiradelli Triple Fudge) with additional ingredients as specified
One teaspoon of her magic ingredient, Almond Extract, stirred into the batter.
Prepare as directed. Set the timer for 40 minutes. While the heat of the oven performs its magic, spread out the plush blanket in a room where you cannot be interrupted. ( If you have kids, lock the door.) Invite your partner to join you on the blanket. Place the pack of cards on the blanket. Each takes a card. High card wins the right to remove one piece of clothing from the other player. First player to lose all clothing gets to choose the next move. Aha, you thought that person would be the loser! Use your imagination. Have fun! When the oven timer sounds, wrap the plush blanket around your gorgeously naked self, run to the oven and bring the brownies back to your play space. Once the brownies are cool enough to eat, feed these Playful Brownie Love Bites to your lover. Sex and chocolate, what’s not to love?

Overworked tax attorney Penelope Sue fields never had time for romance—so she invented a phantom lover named Raoul to fill the gaping hole in her love life. But all it takes is one chance encounter with hunky undercover cop Tony Olano in a New Orleans elevator, and Penelope is ready to give her fantasy man the boot in favor of the flesh and blood, rippling muscled real thing. Now if only he would notice her.
Badboy-turned-cop Tony Olano can’t help but notice the dreamy-eyed lawyer—she’s not only desirable, she’s a suspect in his ongoing criminal investigation! And that’s where grandmotherly Mrs. Maebelle Merlin comes in. A well-meaning meddler, Mrs. Merlin’s prepared to use mystical arts to unite the “all-work-no-play” lady lawyer and the sexy, sensitive lawman. Trouble is that her spell goes seriously awry, leaving Tony and Penelope to forge their own tumultuous path to good old-fashioned passion.

While Not Looking For Mr. Right...
Although she vows that she's locked her heart and thrown away the key, ravishing red-headed Lauren Stevens suddenly has several men vying to prove her wrong—and to win the right to set free her passionate self. Button-down banker Oliver Gotho seems like a good candidate, but it's Oliver's sexy brother Alistair who has invited the beautiful, penniless free spirit to share his living space—temporarily, of course. She thinks she should encourage the successful businessman brother, yet is it Alistair with the oh-so-sensual magic touch who holds the key to her happiness?
Has She Found Her Perfect Match?
Sexy, wise, and charismatic, Alistair has offered Lauren a place to stay out of the goodness of his heart—and certainly not because of her gorgeous eyes, luscious lips and enchanting body. Lauren may entrance him, but it's time for him to find a sensible woman to take to wife. And Lauren, with her penchant for peccadilloes, spells nothing but trouble. But spring is in the balmy New Orleans air, and so is love, as both Lauren and Alistair discover that the heart-pounding perfect match isn't always the one knocking at the door…
Hailey North is a USA Today bestselling author who began writing while employed as a “game show lawyer” for NBC Studios. Tired of hearing lawyers weren’t creative, she quit her job and typed “Chapter One” (not the chapter, just the heading!). Since that day, North has penned eight romantic comedies set in her adopted hometown of New Orleans, Louisiana, and in her favorite imaginary town, Doolittle, Arkansas.
She has also created a three-book “afterlife” series that celebrates creative, but accidentally dead, characters trying their darnedest to win a second chance at life. North lives in Louisiana with her husband, her food-centric Labrador Shelby and her two kindred-spirit felines, Ali Kat and Rosa Pax.
