Y’all know the drill–CLICK HERE to get all the nutrional details about recipe from Kraft. Tait “Shooter” McCord was my Wolf of the Week over on Facebook so it’s his lady’s turn to step up and Lauren Reilly whispered that she snuck this recipe onto their dinner table and Tait ate his spinach without complaint. She’s pretty smart for a city mouse. 😉 For those of you who haven’t read their story, it’s told in MONTANA MOON, which is a crossover of my Moonstruck Wolves and Elle James’s Brotherhood Protectors World. Lauren is on the run from some bad men due to her job at the Pentagon. Tait is just doing a favor for a friend by looking out for her. Yeah…about that… *bwahaha* Just click on the cover for the buy link or read it for free with a Kindle Unlimited subscription. It’s also available in print from Amazon.
