Cooking with the Bachelor – #RomanticSuspense #Preorder #Recipe @AmberDaulton1

Trevor's Redemption cover

By Amber Daulton (Guest Blogger)

Trevor isn’t a normal bachelor. Even though he’s single and lives alone, he doesn’t eat junk food, drink beer all the time, and live off on TV dinners. He cooks for himself and does a pretty good job of it. So good, in fact, that he wows his new girlfriend, Shea, right out of her panties with a home-cooked meal.

But let me back up a second.

Trevor grew up with an abusive, big he-man of a father, but his loving mother taught him how to cook because he needed the life skill. His dad wasn’t too happy about that, to say the least. Luckily, Trevor adored his mother and continued his cooking lessons with her in secret. Once he grew up and moved out on his own, he furthered his culinary education with help from the Internet. Music and food are his hobbies, his way to unwind after a stressful day, and believe me, he has plenty of stresses in his life.

Fast forward to present day, Shea shows up at his apartment, soaking wet and crying. With a tornado warning in effect, she can’t leave. Not that he wants her to go. She’s had a horrible day at work and is now on administrative leave, and all Trevor wants to do is comfort her. What better way to do that than nourish her heart and belly with an open ear and a delicious meal. As they work side-by-side in the kitchen to make a chicken pasta casserole, their feelings for one another deepen. Then the power goes out. What else can they do but light some candles and fall into bed?

Ready for a steamy excerpt? Keep scrolling.

Also, I have a special gift for you. Here’s Trevor’s casserole recipe. Enjoy…

Chicken Pasta Casserole


4-6 chicken breasts (diced)

16 oz penne noddles

2 Tbsp white vinegar (or water/oil)

3 Tbsp butter or oil

1 onion (peeled and diced)

1 carrot (diced)

2 green pepper (diced)

½ cup cheese

croutons or crackers (crushed)

black pepper and salt to taste

Optional ingredients: broccoli, olive, garlic, your favorite spice


Heat oven to 350F. Add vinegar to large casserole dish and make sure you moisten bottom and sides.

In skillet, soften butter on medium heat. Sautée chicken until brown.

Boil pasta and all vegetables in a large pot of water for eight to ten minutes or until al dente. Drain water.

Layer dish with half the pasta-and-vegetable mixture and the chicken. Then another layer of each. Top with cheese and crouton crumbs. Add black pepper and salt to taste. Bake, covered, for 45 minutes.

The danger and lies are more than she can handle.

Shea O’Bannon feels like a fifth wheel around her romantically paired-off friends, but there’s too much slime in the dating pool for her to bother with it. Then she sees her two-timing ex, Trevor Madero, serenading the mostly female crowd at a live-music bar. God knows trouble follows him around, but her desire for him rushes back in anyway. After he rescues her from a handsy drunk, temptation takes over.

Determined to prove he never stepped out on Shea, Trevor slides back into her life—and her heart—with forever in mind. Even with the wall he keeps up to protect her, his secret criminal life weighs heavy on his soul and drives a wedge between them.

When the truth comes out and his enemies target them both, they’ll have to fight for their love, or kiss it goodbye.

Steamy Excerpt

His taste buds tingled, her shower-fresh sweetness an aphrodisiac. He kissed her foot, swirled his tongue across the sole, and popped one of her toes into his mouth.

She bucked again within the restraint of his arms. “Oh my God.”

He chuckled and released the toe with a popping sound. After he licked and treasured her other foot, he climbed onto the sofa and knelt between her spread legs. Her glistening center opened for him. Later. There was no need to rush. He feathered kisses up her right calf, on the underside of her knee, and licked a wet trail across her inner thigh.

God, Trevor. What are you doing?” She fisted the cushion and wiggled.

I’m tormenting you. What does it feel like?”

Torment, definitely.”

Should I stop?”

Don’t you dare.”

He smirked. Damned if he didn’t love her bossy side. He swooped his tongue around her belly button, dipped in, and clasped her waist as she lurched up.

Damn it, yes.” She twined her fingers into his hair and tugged.

His scalp smarted. He kissed her quivering stomach and clasped her naughty little nipple between his teeth. The pebble swelled as he suckled and lightly squeezed her velvet-smooth breasts.

She gripped his shoulders and pulled him closer to her chest.

Ah! Her nails bit through his shirt. He released the nub with a swipe of his tongue, and the bite of her nails eased. He suckled her other nipple more gently.

She gasped, arching her back, pushing her mounds against his face.

Paradise. He drew back for air and claimed her warm mouth. Fiery need sizzled through his veins and pulsed through every organ. He licked from the tip of her button nose to her forehead and kissed each eyebrow.

More, please.”

Her breathy plea coiled around his heart. “Come for me.” He thumbed her clit and slipped his finger in between her hot, slick folds.

Yes, Trevor. There.” She thrust against his hand as soft little mewls left her mouth. She dug her nails against his biceps. “Faster.”

How could he deny her? He pinched and rubbed her puffy clit harder and grinned as she cried out. “That’s it, honey.” He plunged two digits into heaven. Her eyes widened, and her mouth formed a pouty O. Strength and satin clamped his fingers. He suckled her neck, pushing his fingers in and out, stretching her channel. His throbbing cock ached for her.

Oh God, Trevor. I need more.”

He edged back and bent his head between her thighs. He licked her cream and groaned. Fucking hell. Honey, sugar, and spice. Had anything ever tasted so good? As she cried out again, he scissor-kicked his fingers inside her and flicked his tongue across her clitoris.

Her feet shuffled on the cushions, seeking traction. She gasped and gripped his head, forcing his face harder against her.
