 As an avid gardener, I have a great herb garden and want to share some ideas with you how to use all that mint that tends to take over. You can use the fresh leaves to brew into a tea, add them to grilled peaches (see my new recipe page) or add them to a fruit smoothie like the one I made here.

Fruit Smoothie (Handful of each) Strawberries, raspberries, blueberries. 1 small banana, 1 small orange, 1 cup vanilla yogurt, a handful of ice, and several fresh mint leaves. Blend in blender til smooth. Squeeze fresh lime over the top and garnish with fresh mint leaves.  Happy gardening! Elizabeth Rose

    • Savannah, I’m like you that I like to read, as well as write them all. My latest release was Ian – Book 3 of my MadMan MacKeefe Series. It is about a crazy Scottish Highlander. I have a Western series planned for sometime in the future as well. Thanks for entering. – Elizabeth Rose

I show a Samhain celebration and the origin of trick-or-treating and also jack-o-lanterns and what they were used for. My Legacy of the Blade Series has holidays being celebrated in them as well. Thanks for entering. – Elizabeth Rose

    • Elise, Thanks for entering. I can’t say I’ve written any erotica or anything really dark, but I do like to torture my heroes both mentally and sometimes even physically. I think Ian in Book 3 of my MadMan MacKeefe series is one of my most tortured by the demons of his past.

    • Thanks Veronica. I’m sure you’d be interested then in my Daughters of the Dagger Series. Thanks for entering.

    • Thanks for entering. I am excited to be working on my small town contemporary series, Tarnished Saints right now. Juding Judas – book 3 will be released in April/May so be sure to watch for it.

  4. Thanks for the tips about mint. I’ve always wanted to try growing an herb garden.
    For romance genres, I enjoy a wide variety from contemporary to paranormal, but probably spooky gothic romances are my all-time fav.

    • Catherine, I’m happy to share the mint tips. I actually have apple mint growing in my yard. And while I haven’t written any spooky gothic romances, I do have vampire romance that takes place in a cemetery, called The Caretaker of Showman’s Hill. Check out the booktrailer video on my page. Thanks for entering!

  5. I’m a huge fan of historical romances preferably set in the 19th century. I also enjoy historical mystery/suspense books too like those by C. S. Harris (St Cyr Mysteries) and Ashley Gardner’s Captain Lacey series.

    • Thanks Brandi, and yes the smoothie IS yummy. If you like contemporary romance, you may want to try my Tarnished Saints Series that is a small town romance taking place on a lake. The Taylor Twelve. Sons of a preacher, but far from saints. Matter of fact, these men are nothing but trouble.
      Thanks for entering, good luck! – Elizabeth Rose

    • Thanks for mentioning these books as I’ve never heard of them, but the Black Jewels looks like something I’d be interested in reading. I’ve had a plan in the back of my head to write fantasy, just haven’t gotten there yet. Probably the closes thing I have is my Elemental Series or my Greek Myth Fantasy series. Thanks for entering! – Elizabeth Rose

    • Lisa, I’m with you, I love powerful women and would have it no other way in my books. I think some of the most powerful ones would be in my Greek Myth Fantasy series, like Lysandra my Amazon warrior princess in Thief of Olympus or Vara the conqueror in The Pandora Curse. Thanks for entering. – Elizabeth Rose
