Today, in lieu of one of my own recipes, I’m going to introduce you to a new author who will share one of her favorite recipes. Not only will you and I occasionally learn how to make something new and delicious, but we’ll get a chance to check out some wonderful authors. Introducing author, T.L. SCHAEFER, and her favorite recipe for TL’S LAZY DAY SLOW COOKER PORK BBQ!


Red River Recovery Book 2


Protecting a Ukranian mail-order bride is Natalie Flynn’s last security detail before moving up, into the cushy corner office. Away from the memories of an op that went bad, and where she lost everything. If Ethan Masters can pull off this last job, his debts will be paid and he’ll be his own man again. But when he realizes the helicopter he’s repossessing is Natalie’s escape hatch, he can’t leave her and her charge behind. Within hours he and Natalie are on the run from the cops, the mob, and maybe even the Russians, all the while battling an attraction that could doom them… or just might save them.

Red River Recovery Book 2


He was ten, then twenty feet above the deck and beginning to bank away from the building when the rooftop door opened and a woman and teen walked out, both dressed in long flowing tank-style dresses, ridiculously high stacked sandals, carrying enormous purses.

They looked like they’d walked out of a Beverly Hills spa rather than a Dallas high rise half an hour before the sun was even up.

For a long second he was sucked three years into the past. To a different rooftop in a different country, lifting off when he knew the women beneath him were going to die. Doing it anyway because he’d been ordered to. Felt something break inside when he did.

He jerked back to the present, focused on the helipad.

Saw two different faces, American this time instead of Afghan.

A woman, maybe mid-thirties and a teenager who cowered beneath the noise and backwash of the chopper’s primary blade.

Shit. They were his job. He looked at the woman again, filed away everything in his mind, to include the fact she was staring daggers at him. He could see it all the way up here, at an angle. He could also tell that she was cussing up a storm.

The teenager at her side just appeared forlorn and scared, like her future was winging away.

It was that look that had him cursing himself, and returning the helicopter to the helipad, dropping down slowly, then unlocking the doors from the master console.

The woman threw open the door, raven hair and flowery, flowy dress whirling around her as she pushed the girl in first, then followed, closing the door with an authoritative thunk before she banged on the plexi separating the pilot and passengers.

For a moment he was surprised that she’d know to signal the all-clear that way, then he didn’t much care, because now his life had gotten much, much more complicated.

About Author T.L. SCHAEFER…

By day, Terri Schaefer is a Public Affairs Officer for the Air Force. By night? That’s a whole ‘nother story.

TL Schaefer writes mysteries/police procedurals that also have a romance twined throughout. And likely some stuff that goes bump in the night. And every once in awhile, her books are spicy (so look for the heat levels).

If you like your heroes in uniform (be they cops, firefighters, or military) and your heroines with a bit of quirk, then wing by her website www.tlschaefer.com or visit her Facebook group, Musings From the Blonde Side at https://www.facebook.com/groups/920052411730859/ where she talks about books, cats and her very own romance hero.
