Thirsty Thursdays and Hungry Hearts ~ #3

Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts

Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts - (un)Conventional Bookviews

It is hosted by Unconventional Bookviews . The idea of Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts is to share a quote with food or drinks that showed up in a recent read, as well as if it’s something you think you’d like or not. 
So without further ado:

This week, my quote is from my top favourite book in this year so far, Devil in Spring from The Ravenels series by Lisa Kleypas. Its a historical romance story. Gabriel, son of Sebastian and Evie from Devil in Winter(Wallflowers series) is our hero and Pandora a wild spirited, independent and a very sweet girl is our heroine. Thoroughly enjoyed reading it. Now you enjoy reading about the feast.

The Challons’ cook and kitchen staff had outdone themselves with a variety of dishes featuring spring vegetables and local fish and game. Although the cook back home at Eversby Priory was excellent, the food at Heron’s Point was a cut above. There were colorful vegetables cut into tiny julienne strips, tender artichoke hearts roasted with butter, steaming crayfish in a sauce of white burgundy and truffles, and delicate filets of sole coated with crisp breadcrumbs. Pheasant covered with strips of bacon and roasted to juicy, smoky perfection was served with a side of boiled potatoes that had been whipped with cream and butter into savory melting fluff. Beef roasts with peppery crackled hides were brought out on massive platters, along with golden-crusted miniature game pies, and macaroni baked with Gruy√®re cheese in clever little tart dishes.

Thanks for stopping by! Leave links to your Thirsty Thursdays, I'll be sure to check it out!

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Title: Midnight Target (Killer Instincts #8)
(Click on the title to know more about it on goodreads.)
 Author:  Elle Kennedy
Genre:  Contemporary Romance, Adult Fiction, Suspense
Publication Date:  April 25th, 2017


Goodreads Summary:



From the New York Times bestselling author of The Score and Midnight Revenge...

Four years ago, Cate’s entire life changed when she discovered she was the daughter of a supersoldier. But Jim Morgan’s overprotectiveness has pushed her away. These days, she’s working as a freelance photographer and living the dangerous life Jim never wanted for her.

When Cate snaps a photo linking a corrupt South American politician with the leader of a notorious drug cartel, her mercenary father leads a team to rescue her—only to get shot and critically wounded in the process.

As Morgan’s operatives rally together on a revenge mission, they’re faced with new alliances and old heartaches. Cate is forced to work with David “Ash” Ashton, the man who broke her heart two years ago, while Liam Macgregor and Sullivan Port resurface after years apart to finally try to deal with everything they’d left unsaid.

Soon it’s all-out war between the cartel and the mercenaries—with two couples caught in the middle of the blood feud. Love and redemption are within their reach...but first they have to make it home alive.

I'm waiting because...

I am a huge fan of this series and this is most anticipated book with two most anticipated stories and it's a last book in this series. I so can't wait for this series.
