I love to garden and love to cook, but sometimes I get sick of it, just want a day off where someone pampers me. So, in my latest book, Bermuda Triangle I wrote a hero that was into gardening and cooking. There’s nothing sexier than a good looking, shirtless man making a meal. Well, maybe what happens after supper ...
I have a couple apple trees in my backyard, and this Apple Danish recipe is a favorite at my house.

•3 cups all-purpose flour
•1/2 teaspoon salt
•1 cup butter
•1/2 cup milk
•6 cups sliced peeled apples
•1-1/2 cups sugar
•2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
•1 teaspoon cinnamon
•1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
•2 to 3 teaspoons water
In a bowl, combine flour and salt; cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Combine egg and milk; add to flour mixture. Stir just until dough clings together. Divide dough in half.
On a lightly floured surface, roll half of dough into a 15-in. x 10-in. rectangle; transfer to a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan. Set aside.
In a bowl, toss together filling ingredients; spoon over pastry in pan. Roll out remaining dough into another 15-in. x 10-in. rectangle. Place over filling. Bake at 375° for 40 minutes or until golden brown.
For glaze, combine the confectioners' sugar and enough water to achieve a drizzling consistency. Drizzle over warm pastry. Cut into squares. Serve warm or cold. Yield: 20-24 servings.

A plane crash leaves pilot Paige Williams stranded on an island in the middle of the Bermuda Triangle with sexy twin brothers Dalton and Cooper Thompson. She tries to resist the advances of both, knowing it would only be a fling, but as time passes she has to face the fact they may never be rescued. Paige doesn’t want to choose one brother over the other, so Dalton and Cooper come up with a solution—they’ll take turns having Paige’s beautiful body.
Soon jealousy and tension make them rethink the arrangement. The only way to keep the peace is for all three to be involved in every sexual adventure, and it turns out to be more fulfilling than they thought possible. Who wants to be rescued when you’re living in paradise?
