Our favorite alpha female, Hannah Jackson McIntire, notorious bad cook in the Moonstruck series, took one look and said, “Hey! I can make these. I mean…cake mix. Pre-made everything! No, seriously. I can do it.” That was before the Kool-Aid package spilled all across the kitchen counter (WHITE counter) when she opened it. Should I mention that the counter was wet? Yeah…Mac and Liam are still laughing, just not in her earshot. Check out her love story with Mac in MOONSTRUCK: SECRETS, or any of the Moonstruck books because she ALWAYS shows up. 😉 Just click on the cover for a trip to the page with all the links.
