I do love porridge, but due to dietary restrictions, the only grain I am permitted to eat is millet. Millet is a smart carb with lots of fiber and low simple sugars. Because of this it has a relatively low glycemic index and has been shown to produce lower blood sugar levels than wheat or rice.

1 cup millet
3 3/4 cups coconut milk
1/3 cup almonds
1/3 cup coconut
1 tsp cinnamon
1/3 cup raisins or dried cranberries
Simmer ingredients together for approximately 45 minutes. Top with toasted pecans.

When Sir Gorran’s people disappear after a raid on a Saxon settlement, he kidnaps Princess Ariana, a priestess of Avalon, and demands their return. Though he knew he risked Ariana’s curse as well as a lifetime hiding from the king’s sword, he does not realize his greatest risk in holding the lovely princess for ransom is to his heart.
The intimacy shared with her kidnapper leaves Ariana wounded by the experience and his reappearance at the annual tournament only deepens her pain. When her brother foists him on her as a guardian and slave she must come to terms with her feelings for the dominant warrior. Will she send him away to his death, or will she realize her pain is only caused by living without him?
