Harlequin Series Blog Tour: A Seal's Temptation Bon Appetit and a Book

Hi guys - I  have a post for you today. And it is to let you know about the book I received. It is a Harlequin book called, "A Seal's Temptation," by Tawny Weber.

Here's a recipe from the author Tawny Weber:
Bon Appetit and a Book :

(click to enlarge)

Cacao Nibs Pomegranate Brownies

1/2 cup melted coconut oil*
3/4 cup cacao powder**
1/2 tsp sea salt + more for finishing
4 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup pomegranate seeds
2 tbsp cacao nibs***

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and coat an 8x8 pan with cooking spray
In a large mixing bowl whisk together the oil, sugar, cacao powder and salt.  Stir in the vanilla and eggs. Add in the flour and mix until smooth.
Pour the batter into the lined baking dish and sprinkle on the pomegranate seeds & cacao nibs. Bake for about 40 minutes. A toothpick test should still be slightly wet in the center, but the edges should be firm.
Take the brownies out of the oven, sprinkle the brownies with sea salt.  Allow to cool before cutting and serving.

*You can substitute olive oil
**You can substitute cocoa powder

***You can substitute mini chocolate chips

Info on the book:

In A Seal’s Temptation, (Harlequin; $5.50) Lark Sommers’s dry spell is officially a sex-starved desert. Since taking over her mom’s quirky coffee shop in Nowhere, Idaho – putting her own career on permanent hold –Lark’s been, well, miserable. But her friends have a plan, one that starts with a superhot guy with a rockin’ hard bod.

US Navy SEAL Shane O’Brian has no clue he’s being set up. All he knows is that Lark does incredible things to his libido. Still, Shane can’t quite bring himself to tell her what he does for a living. After all, their risqué business is temporary; no strings, no falling in love, especially when there’s no way this SEAL would ever be tempted into anything more than a sexy little fling.

my brief review:

If you like Harlequin Romances then you will be sure to like this book. It has interesting characters. And a good story, with of course some hot romance scenes too. I liked the story line of Lark and Shane and how they got together, despite some obstacles. Like her living in Idaho, taking care of her mother's coffee shop after she died, even though she had a career as an up and coming sculptor, and Shane being a Navy Seal, but his family didn't approve. This is a fun and easy read and you should check it out on Amazon.

I hope you enjoyed this blog tour today, I will try to post the other one tomorrow for the book: "A Wanted Man."
