Blurb

Parker Townsend raised his children alone after he lost his beloved wife to cancer. When his two little hellions placed a ‘Mom Wanted’ ad in the local paper, Parker found himself roped into an unwanted blind date.
Claire Lauer answered the want ad with few expectations and met Parker on Valentine’s Day, a day she hated with a passion. As an animal rights activist and a divorcée, she felt more comfortable with a placard in her hand than in the company of a handsome man with emotional baggage.
After a protest takes a turn for the worse, she seeks shelter in her date’s arms and loses time in his bed. Will Parker and Claire find the courage to lay their fragile hearts on the chopping block by morning, or will they forever live in a world of gray? 

Recipe Time!

I absolutely love to bake. My favorite sweet tooth recipe is blackberry pie, so I thought I'd share it with you. Enjoy! 

Blackberry Pie

Ingredients
4 cups of blackberries
½ c sugar
½ c all purpose flour
Nutmeg and Cinnamon to taste
9 inch double crust pie (two pie shells)
2 T milk

Preparation
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
Combine 3 1/2 cups berries with the sugar, flour, nutmeg and cinnamon. Spoon the mixture into an unbaked pie shell. Spread the remaining 1/2 cup berries on top of the sweetened berries, and cover with the top crust. Seal and crimp the edges, and cut vents in the top crust for steam to escape.
Brush the top crust with milk, and sprinkle with 1/4 cup sugar.
Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes. Reduce the temperature of the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C), and bake for an additional 20 to 25 minutes, or until the filling is bubbly and the crust is golden brown. Cool on wire rack.
