Unicorn Cupcakes from Anticipating Rejection

Jul 1, 2019 Filed under: book release, contemporary, m/m, recipes

I’ve had several readers ask about a recipe for the unicorn cupcakes from Anticipating Rejection. While I’ve made many of the cupcakes in the book and I’ve made the cake and frosting from the unicorn cupcakes, I’ve not made unicorn cupcakes exactly like Noah’s so I don’t have a picture of mine to share, however, I do have the recipes you’ll need to put yours together and some ideas for easier alternatives. I’m planning to make some in the next few weeks and I’ll come back and post my results (warning: my decorating skills aren’t up to Noah’s standards).

When he makes the Unicorn cupcakes, Noah says he uses a cake he often uses for wedding cakes that has a light lemon flavor.
Use the lemon cake from this Martha Stewart recipe.

Or if you want something quicker, Duncan Hines Classic White Cake is a good mix. Add 1/2 tsp lemon extract and 1 tsp lemon zest.

Noah says he uses the icing from his Dreamsicle cupcakes. These are cupcakes I make frequently and this is the icing recipe I use.

Dreamsicle icing**
1/2 cup butter softened
1/4 cup whipping cream
1 tsp orange extract
1/8 tsp salt
3.5-4 cups powdered sugar

**You may want to double it to have plenty to color and experiment with.

Whip butter with a stand mixer or a hand held mixture until it’s soft and creamy. Add next three ingredients and mix thoroughly on medium speed. Add 2 cups powdered sugar. Mix on low and then increase to medium high until well-combined. Add another 1.5 cups of sugar and mix well. You may need to add more sugar or more cream to get a smooth spreadable texture. If you want a deeper orange flavor, add a few more drops of orange extract.

Divide into three bowls and color one bowl blue, one pink, and one purple. Or use the color combo of your choice.

Pipe the icing onto the cupcakes using a large star tip. Place all three colors side by side in the bag and they’ll come out with a striped rainbow-y effect.

Noah explains that he made the lemon candy horns himself, wowing everyone. Unfortunately, this isn’t something I’ve tried, but I do know what Noah would have done so I’m going to tell you what you could do to try it out. If you want to go simpler, you can buy unicorn horn cupcake toppers online or at stores like Michael’s and Wal-mart.

Candy horns:
Start by making butter mints but substitute lemon extract for the mint extract. Here’s a recipe.

When you shape the candy, make it into the shape of a horn by twisting it rather than creating the shapes suggested in the recipe.

Noah doesn’t mention how he made the ears, but they can be made from fondant, purchased premade (try Etsy, Michaels, or a party shop), or made from marshmallows like in this recipe.

Noah decorates them with edible golden glitter and silver stars. I have both those topping and purchased them at Michaels. I’m sure you can get them anywhere that sells baking decorations.

I’ve got more unicorn cupcake inspiration on my Anticipation Series Pinterest board.

 

It’s Release Day for Anticipating Rejection!

Jun 25, 2019 Filed under: book release, contemporary, cowboy, D/s, m/m

Anticipating Rejection is out now!

I’m so excited to bring you Anticipating Rejection, the next book in the Anticipation series. This is Noah and Del’s story and it’s actually the first one that came to me as this series developed. If you know about my love of baking, you’ll know why this one is extra special to me. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.

Here’s a little more about the story:

Del is now a single dad, and for the sake of his young daughter, he’s moving back to his parents’ ranch. Returning to Anticipation means seeing Noah again—the man who was his best friend and then so much more. Del enjoyed surrendering control to Noah, but fear of what their relationship would mean sent him running. Will Noah even speak to him again, much less give him a second chance?

Noah has resigned himself to a quiet life improving his baking skills and running his family’s café. When his mom volunteers him to pick up Del at the airport despite an incoming blizzard, he braces himself to be stranded overnight while trying to pretend he hasn’t missed the man who broke his heart.

The moment they see each other, heat flares between them, and all Noah’s dominant urges come to life again. He wants Del as badly as he always has, but he can’t trust Del to stay around long enough for their relationship to develop. Is there any chance of a future for these two men who are both anticipating rejection?

Anticipating Disaster

Love Someone Like Me

 

Waverly

I’m not a typical omega. I like control, and I’d rather take than be taken.

After years of fantasizing, I finally find an alpha who will submit to all my desires. Our connection is beyond intense. My wolf says we’re fated for each other, but I know better.

Even if a test strip says I’m pregnant, I don’t want a mate. No matter how submissive he may appear, I won’t link myself to an alpha.

 

Derek

I’ll never live up to what my pack thinks an alpha should be.

I don’t want to order omegas and betas around. In fact, I’d prefer to hand over the reins and enjoy the bliss of surrender.

I jump at the chance when a dominant omega asks me to share his heat. Once I get a taste of him, I know a few days together won’t be enough. I want it all: a mating ceremony, kids, the future stretched before us. He wants to run as fast as he can, but I’m determined to show him I don’t want to confine him—I want to set him free.

Anticipating Disaster is out now!

Apr 26, 2019 Filed under: book release, contemporary, m/m

It’s release day for Anticipating Disaster! This story starts a new series called Anticipation which is set in the fictional town of Anticipation, Wyoming. This story will give you all the comfort you need and all the heat you crave.

Oliver hates cold weather, sports, and socializing, but he loves his grandmother, so when she organizes a family reunion at a ski lodge in Wyoming, he reluctantly agrees to go. He promises her he’ll take one ski lesson, though he plans to spend as much time as possible in his room. After a registration mix-up places Oliver in a children’s lesson, a hot stranger comes to his rescue and offers to teach him. Oliver indulges in all kinds of fantasies about the tall, outdoorsy man, even ones including Oliver’s biggest secret, the satin and lace he likes to wear under his jeans. The mention of a past girlfriend makes Oliver assume his fantasy man is straight until the man starts making innuendos and looking at Oliver with heat in his eyes.

David has never been one for casual hookups. For the last few years, he’s focused all his energy on starting his own business, but now he’s ready to make a real connection with someone. As he gets to know Oliver, he realizes there’s the potential for something special between them. Most people see Oliver as a nerdy guy who talks too much when he’s nervous and knows far too many trivial facts. David sees the real Oliver, a man bursting with creativity and intelligence who needs someone to show him how special he is. Just because David hasn’t been with a man before doesn’t mean he hasn’t wanted to. Can he start a relationship when Oliver’s only staying in Wyoming for a week? David plans on spending every moment he has convincing Oliver that David can keep him warm, no matter what the weather—or the world—sends their way.

Love at Lupine Bakery

Love at Long Last is out now!

Jan 22, 2019 Filed under: book release, m/m, shapeshifter

Love at Long Last, the first book in my shifter mpreg series, Trillium Creek,is available now to purchase at Amazon and borrow through Kindle Unlimited!

Silas had always expected to find his fated mate early in life, like most pack leaders do. But as he nears his fortieth birthday, still single, he begins to accept that maybe he’s not meant to have a mate after all. When he finds an intruder in his territory, a young cop who smells human but also like everything he’s longed for, Silas can’t help but feel a spark of hope. Could this man be part shifter? Could he be Silas’s mate?

Cory’s conservative family believes shifters are evil, but when he meets Silas, he’s shocked by the pack leader’s gentleness and hit with feelings of desire beyond anything he’s ever experienced. All of Cory’s fantasies center around older men who take charge and take care of him, so when Silas asks if he needs a Daddy, all he can say is yes.

Torn between his family’s expectations and the pull he feels toward Silas, Cory knows he’ll have to give up his career if he follows his heart. Silas wants Cory, not fate, to decide if they should be together, so he fights his protective instincts. But an unexpected pregnancy forces their hands, and the two men have to figure out how to fit their lives together. And maybe have love at long last.


Love at Lupine BakeryLove at Lupine Bakery is a prequel to Trillium Creek so grab it too if you haven’t already. Levi and Finn will continue to be part of the series.

Finn is focused on continuing the success of his family’s bakery. Eventually, he’ll settle down with an alpha and start a family, but for now, he’s content to satisfy his needs with casual hook-ups. Then a gorgeous stranger walks into the bakery, and Finn’s whole world shifts.

Levi’s father was a wolf shifter, but he was raised by his human mother and—like most hybrids—has never shown any wolf characteristics. That all changes when he enters Lupine Bakery and every instinct tells him the omega behind the counter is his.

Both Finn and Levi try to ignore what their hearts and bodies are telling them, but an unexpected pregnancy may force them to face what fate has in store.

After the Weekend continues Graham and Avery’s story from Father of the Groom.

What Graham and Avery thought would be a single night of pleasure turned into so much more. Their needs and desires lined up perfectly, and by the time they parted after three glorious days, they both knew there was far more than lust between them.

Living in different towns makes continuing their relationship challenging, but Graham visits Avery most weekends, and their bond deepens. Avery thinks Graham is the best Daddy ever and Graham loves nothing more than taking care of Avery and challenging his need to surrender. But both men are unsure exactly how far they want this relationship dynamic to go. There are so many hard questions to answer when both men would prefer to live in a fantasy world during their limited time together.

But reality is calling. Graham and Avery both have friends who need their help with major life decisions, inquisitive family members, and a growing desire to spend more time together. In order to continue their relationship, they must figure out where their boundaries lie and what they want from each other outside the bedroom.

Father of the Groom sequel coming soon!
