Here's a recipe Dominique graciously shared...yum!

So summer is fading and Fall is approaching, not that you could tell by the 90 degree weather we are having in the southeast this week, Yet, with my favorite Season fall approaching we also enters Soup Season so I thought I would share with you my favorite soup recipe. Curry Pumpkin soup it’s quick and easy and warms you up.

Curry Pumpkin Soup

• 1 cup (1 small) chopped onion (optional)
• 2 large cloves garlic, finely chopped

• 1/2 teaspoon salt
• 1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper
• 3 cups chicken broth
• 1 can (15 oz.) Pumpkin

ADD broth and pumpkin; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low; cook, stirring occasionally, for 15 to 20 minutes. Stir in evaporated milk. Transfer mixture to food processor or blender (in batches, if necessary); cover. Blend until smooth. Serve warm.

Just a taste of Dominique Eastwick's
Hunting JC

As Hunter cleared the doorframe, he was attacked, not by a mugger or drunken man, but he was attacked by her, J.C. Her hand twined through his hair and brought his mouth down to hers. Her lips moved under his, begging him to open to her, begging him to give her a try. She took his hand and placed them on her full breast. Her nipples immediately pearled in his hand. His mind screamed to stop this now, but his body didn’t seem to be listening. From the moment her soft, full lips touched his, he was putty in her hand. He knew his only hope of survival was that she had not yet become aware of it.

"J.C..." he moaned into her mouth as he said unconvincingly, "We can’t do this."

"Shh," she hushed, pressing her breasts further into his hands. "Just feel me, let me feel you."

"Jacinda, will you listen to me?"

"Not if your words have anything to do with, this isn’t right. Or Jacinda, this can’t happen between us."

"Exactly, that is..."

"Shh," Jacinda pressed her fingers against his lips. He felt the electrical vibrations that were humming through her fingertips. "Please let me do this for you. I want to taste you."

Five words were his undoing. I want to taste you
