Welcome Passionate Cook & Author Anita Philmar

Anita likes to create stories that push the limit. A writer by day and a dreamer by night, she wants her readers to see the world in a new way. Influenced by sci-fi programs, she likes to develop places where anything can happen and where erotic moments come to life in a great read. Naughty or nice? Read her book and decide.

Here is a special treat, you don't have to wait to get your copy of the Passionate Cooks Cookbook because below is Anita's recipe for: 

Smoking Hot Bourbon Beef

1 tablespoon honey
2 tablespoons brown Sugar
1 cup of your favorite steak sauce
1 cup bourbon whiskey
2 teaspoons prepared mustard
4 (10 ounce) steaks

1. Combine first 5 ingredients together (everything except
the steak) in a baking dish or large plastic storage bag
and mix well.

2. Add steak and cover or seal. Allow to marinate for at
least two hours or overnight.

3. Preheat grill to medium or high heat. Can also cook
under your broiler in the oven.

4. Grill steaks. Allow 5-7 minutes on each side depending
on the doneness you prefer. Turn over halfway through

I like to save the marinate. Heat it up in a sauce pan until its thick and serve it over the steaks.

Add a bake potato and a salad.
Dinner is ready.

Hotwired for each other...

When Ross Dixon is kidnapped from his office, along with the sexy lawyer who'd been busting his balls over a deal that should have been a walk in the park, he wakes to find a devotion chip surgically implanted in his brain. If that isn't bad enough, the chip, designed to trigger emotional reactions between him and the woman lying next to him, is working over time on his libido.

Mistaken for Ross's flavor of the month, Kayla Michaels, a 22nd century lawyer, doesn't have a problem spending time in Ross's bed--or over his desk--but she wants no part in the romantic feelings the chip is provoking. She's been down that road before and ended up burned.

Kayla and Ross struggle to find answers while coming to terms with the constant lust sizzling between them, but along the way each wonders if the emotions are real or just a side effect of being hotwired.

Welcome Passionate Cook & Author Regan Walker

Regan Walker

I’m a confirmed Californian and live in San Diego with my Golden Retriever. It’s been about four years that I’ve been reading romance, and once I fell in love with the genre of historical romance, I couldn’t wait to write one. All of my earlier writing had been in connection with my profession as a lawyer (very boring stuff!). Since I had traveled extensively and had a feel for the demands of “the Crown” on its subjects from my time in government, it was natural I would write about a demanding Prince Regent and three hunky heroes who are on “special assignments” for him in various places. The first in my Agents of the Crown trilogy is Racing with the Wind.

My novel is a Regency historical romance set in London and Paris in 1816 and tells the story of the intrepid daughter of an earl who leaves London for the Parisian court of Louis XVIII, where she finds adventure, mystery, and above all, love. Some of the secondary characters are real, historic figures of the time.

Prune Cake recipe:

I love this recipe, which I’ve had since I was in high school and just learning to cook. It’s a great cake to bake and keep in the refrigerator for when company drops by unexpectedly during the holidays. It’s not too sweet and very healthy (well, except for some sugar, of course). Everyone I know loves it and I’ve been asked for it many times. It’s a great gift cake, too, and sometimes I make it in small Bundt pans. In keeping with my Regency era novel, in Passionate Cooks it’s titled Prinny’s Prune Cake in honor of George, the Prince Regent of England.
