A Recipe For Love @Natalieann121 #mgtab

Take an ex-Navy SEAL security expert that has demons he’s trying to outrun. Guilt piled on his shoulders higher than Mount Olympus and mistakes he’ll never forgive himself for.

Then add in the lone girl of the Fierce Five. The one that is always calm, cool, collected, and in control. Who puts her family business and obligations before any personal life. Why? Because it seems no one wants her for her, but rather her name.

Mix them together and you get Fierce-Ella. Two strong-willed individuals both looking for love—secretly from each other for years.

When I started the Fierce Five Series over two years ago I made sure to build each of the siblings characters exponentially in the next book. I’ve always had a deeper connection to my heroes than my heroines. But by time I got to Ella’s story, I realized she was by far my favorite all along. Watching her journey through each book while her brothers fell in love and she supported them was nothing short of…loving from a woman that most called cold.

Fierce-Ella will be released on Feb 19th and though I originally thought that would be the end of the series, I just couldn’t bring myself to do that. Not when I’ve become so close to this family. (Yes, authors get attached to their characters as if they are living in those worlds with them). So in the summer of 2019, I will be releasing Fierce-Sam, the first of the Fierce Family. The Fierce Five have 7 cousins that were introduced in Cade’s book. Of course they need their own stories!

Until then, enjoy Fierce-Ella. Or Brody, Aiden, Mason, and Cade. Each book can be read as a stand-alone or in any order. And if you are a member of Kindle Unlimited, then you can read them FREE! Or for 99 cents you can check out their parents story in How Gavin Stole Christmas!

2018 Equals 16 New Releases! #mgtab @Natalieann121

Yes, you read that right. I released sixteen new books in 2018!! Talk about shocking myself!

I set a goal for myself to release twelve. One book a month. Most were going to be novellas. What I forgot was I had several series going and I couldn’t put them on the backburner either. Like most authors, we get attached to the families we write about and they were screaming in my head to let them out.

My sixteenth book will be released on December 18th. Winter Love.

Most of the books for the year were novellas that were part of the Love Collection. Nine of them to be exact. Each book is only 99 cents or can be read for free on Kindle Unlimited. And each book is a stand alone story of love, romance, and happy ever after. You can read them in any order that you want.

Five of the books that were released were part of my Fierce Five Series. I’ve really come to love this family! So much so, in 2019, I decided to expand it to the Fierce Family with all their cousins. It’s a big family and will take some time, but I’m thrilled to get it started.

I also released one book from my All Series and one from my Lake Placid Series. I can’t seem to let these families go either, so in 2019, I’m going to revisit them and put a book or two out for them too.

Will I release sixteen books in 2019 again? My guess is no. Most of the books I’m going to focus on will be novels for my series, which take longer to write. That being said, I’d still like to release a book a month next year and once I set a goal for myself… I almost always achieve it!!

My Favorite Time of Year! #mgtab @NatalieAnn121

My Favorite Time Of Year!

What is your favorite time of year? Do you even have one?

In Upstate NY most people are begging for spring after a cold winter. But oftentimes we don’t get a spring and it jumps right into summer. That is how it seemed to happen this year.

There was a record number of days over 90 and we even hit 100 a few times. We had 4 days over 90 just last week and frankly, I’m sick of it.

But now it’s September and I’m looking forward to my favorite time of year.  Fall!!

Nice days and cool nights. Sleeping with the windows opened. Football Sundays and best of all apple picking!

It’s a tradition I’ve had with my son since he was a toddler. We’d go once in September, pick a big bag of apples and I’d come home and make apple sauce and his favorite apple cake. I only make it once a year since it’s such a rich decadent dessert.

I love Fall so much, I just released a new book this week, Autumn Love. It’s based around a beloved community’s apple orchard. When the orchard got to be too much for Ali Rogers’ mom to handle she decided to sell it. Liam Sullivan is a contractor that wanted to bring the orchard back to life and found that it’s more than a business venture when he falls for Ali. Add in Ali’s meddling grandfather’s ghost and it’s a great book to curl up with!

This story has so many things in it that I love personally and I hope that you will too. It’s just 99 cents, or FREE to read on Kindle Unlimited.

And if you want to try out my famous Apple Cake, here is the recipe for you!

3 cups of flour

4 teaspoons of cinnamon

2 teaspoons of nutmeg

1 teaspoon of baking soda

½ teaspoon of baking powder

3 eggs

2 cups of sugar

1 cup of oil

1 teaspoon of vanilla

4 cups of diced apples (no skin)

  • Mix all the dry ingredients together and set aside
  • Beat eggs, then add sugar and oil
  • Add vanilla and then the dry ingredients
  • Once all is mixed well, add the apples. Mix until blended, but not until the apples are broken up. Using the mixer will bring some of the juices of the apples out and make the cake extremely moist, but you still want to leaves some small chunks in it.
  • Pour into a greased 13 x 9 cake pan
  • Bake at 350 for an hour (test by sticking a toothpick in the center. If batter comes away, continue to cook until the toothpick is clean)
  • Frost with vanilla or cream cheese frosting
  • Cover and keep at room temperature for about a week

Enjoy!
