I touched base with a couple of characters to check on their feelings about ice cream. Lennox Morgan, the heroine of ASSASSIN’S MOON, spends a lot of time with her Wolf mate, Griffith Caine, in very exotic locales. Sometimes, ice cream as we know it isn’t an option and Lenny discovered Chocolate Semifreddo when they were in Naples, Italy. Being a very talented lady, she figured out an easy way to recreate this dessert. She even convinced Griff that he likes it. 😉 If you’d like to read how a woman with a deep social conscience hooks up with a highly-paid international assassin, then click on the book cover or the title. ASSASSIN’S MOON is free to read with a Kindle Unlimited subscription or you can add it to your collection for $2.99. It’s also available in paperback. So, nosy minds want to know. What’s your favorite flavor of ice cream? Me? I’m a chocolate chip cookie dough kinda gal, but this would do in a pinch!

  1. Sounds yummy. You know me. I love ice cream. I’m not sure I have a favorite anymore. Yesterday, I managed to buy one of the last two half-gallons at the DG – Edy’s chocolate peanut butter cup, which is up there in the favorites category. (The other half-gallon was chocolate mint. Bleh.) I need vanilla in the house for having with cake and for making floats, though. They stopped making my favorite ice cream ever about 30 years ago – choco-malt chip. Chocolate malt ice cream with teeny-tiny chocolate covered malted milk ball bits. OMG.

    As always, loved the book. Love the characters. People really need to read all your stuff already. Sheesh.

      I post the recipes for you and the book recommendations for everyone else. 😉 I also have to admit that I really like mint chocolate chip. I make an ice cream dessert that’s Oreo crust, mint choco-chip, peanuts or pecans, and topped with homemade fudge sauce. I need to make it so I can grab a picture to feature some Tuesday. 😆
