We’re so pleased to have author Silvia Violet joining us today on the tour for her latest release from Riptide Publishing, Lace-Covered Compromise. We’ve got a great foodie post to share with you, and there’s also a giveaway, so be sure to check out those details below.
If you spend any time at all with me, you’ll quickly learn that I love food. I love to eat it, of course, but also to cook and bake. I have a large cookbook collection and spend more time than I should reading cooking blogs. So naturally, when I write, I think a lot about what my characters enjoy eating and usually end up with a few scenes that revolve around food.
Today I want to share some of Adam and Nate’s favorite foods. Some of these show up in Lace-Covered Compromise, and the rest are things I’m sure they’ll enjoy together in the future.
As you’ll see from his list, Adam has a strong need for comfort foods and foods that make him remember good times in his life.
Adam’s Favorite Foods
1) Chicago-style hot dogs (particularly those bought from a street cart)
2) gooey fresh-out of the oven chocolate chip cookies
3) Chicago deep dish pizza with all the meats
4) a perfect piece of sourdough toast dripping with butter
5) biscuits and gravy (just like his Southern nanny used to make for him)
Nate enjoys adventure. He likes to try new cuisines and doesn’t mind if something is blow-your-head-off spicy or OMG-there’s-an-eyeball-in-there. But he also doesn’t mind the occasional comforting childhood treat.
Nate’s Favorite Foods
1) chicken vindaloo (a spicy Indian curry)
2) pho (a Vietnamese soup)
3) a platter of Ethiopian meat and vegetable dishes with plenty of injera to scoop it all up
4) seafood tacos
5) ice cream, preferably in a sugar cone just like he had as a kid
I’d love to hear about some of your favorite foods, and I encourage you to find some delicious to enjoy while you read Lace-Covered Compormise.
About the Book
Adam Kingston expects to inherit his father’s multinational conglomerate. When he finds out half of it went to Nate Thomas—an annoying man whose dreams for Kingston Corp.’s future clash with Adam’s need to stave off financial disaster—Adam is furious. He’s willing to do whatever it takes to wrest control of Kingston Corp. from Nate.
Nate may be soft-spoken, but he refuses to be swayed by Adam’s arrogant demands. When Nate accidentally drops a pair of his lacy panties in front of Adam, there’s no mistaking Adam’s interest. Nate hadn’t realized Adam was bisexual, but now that his secret is out, Nate is willing to use Adam’s lust against him if it means protecting the welfare of the company he loves.
For Adam and Nate, hatred and desire are closely linked. Their inability to compromise threatens the company and could expose their tightly held secrets. But as they work together to develop a plan to save Kingston Corp., they begin to realize there might be more to their relationship than anger and lust.
