I believe I shared with you earlier this month how I’ve decided to do the Keto Diet. It’s still going extremely well, despite my earlier misgivings that I wouldn’t be able to satisfy my desire for those forbidden foods. Well, let me just say I’ve discovered Keto Desserts, and just this weekend my daughter and I made the spectacular one pictured above. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, I’m able to enjoy one of my most favorite desserts of all time on this diet: Cheesecake!

Of course, this is a mini version, and it’s made without granulated sugar, but oh is this a delicious alternative to the original! To be honest, I could eat this version even when I’m not doing Keto and enjoy it. Rather than graham crackers, the crust is made of almond meal, butter, and Swerve (and if you want to be fancy, you can add cinnamon). The filling is of course, cream cheese, egg, vanilla extract, lemon juice, and Swerve sweetener. Yummy!

Check out the Mini Keto Cheesecakes recipe below.*

I was cooking and planning this weekend, Instead of writing. Sorry!

Speaking of writing, if you want to read any of my books while you’re waiting on my new stuff to publish, you can find all my books here, where a couple of them are now on SALE: LV Lewis books!

THE R COLLECTION

$2.99 or FREE for KU Subscribers

Two racy romance novellas from one bestselling author.

REDEEMING THE AMAZON

Karen Freeman is nine years post-op from a double mastectomy. Returning to a normal dating and sex life has been difficult. Her most meaningful relationship after surgery occurred with a man other than her husband. 

Paul Beaudelaire, former ladies’ man, had his career in the corps cut short by the loss of his left leg. He returned to New Orleans with a state-of-the-art prosthesis, but left his heart in Baltimore with an ex-model, whose crippled marriage was the only deterrent to his waning honor. A fantasy weekend at The Beaudelaire Hotel may give him a second chance with his contemporary Amazon.

REKINDLING THE FLAME

Sabine Beaudelaire returns to her hometown of New Orleans to the bedside of her favorite uncle, Sebastian Beaudelaire. Estranged for six months from her fiancé of eight years, she still hopes for reconciliation. But her hopes are short-lived.

Enter a gorgeous “Hot IT Guy”, aka Xander “Fish” Fisbourne, whose sex appeal fills her head with thoughts of propositioning a man for the first time. Fishbourne and the Den of Sin may be exactly what Sabine needs to bring her out of her sexual drought.

Mini Keto Cheescakes*

Ingredients

Crust
1/2 cup almond meal
2 tbsp butter

Cheesecake
8 oz. cream cheese
1 large egg
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp lemon juice
1 pinch salt
1/4 cup Swerve or  So Nourished erythritol

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. To make the crust, melt some butter until liquid and mix in your almond meal until you have some that feels like crumbly play dough.
  2. Take about a teaspoon at a time and press the dough into the bottom of a muffin tin. Tip: line your pan with cupcake liners for easy removal! Cheesecake is very soft and if hard to scoop out without causing damage! Bake these crusts for about 5 minutes. They’ll come out slightly brown and crispy.
  3. Then take your room temperature cream cheese and beat it with an electric hand mixer or standing mixer until creamy. Then add vanilla extract, lemon, an egg and your sugar substitute, erythritol in our case. Beat until all combined.
  4. Use an ice cream scooper to fill all the crust-bottomed muffin tin cups evenly almost to the top (the mini cheesecakes will rise while in the oven but will flatten while refrigerating). You can also line each cup with a cupcake liner to make removing the mini cheesecakes easier.
  5. Bake at 350°F for about 15 minutes. The mini cheesecakes should be slightly jiggly. Let them cool in the refrigerator for ideally 24 hours. But if you’re strapped for time, try putting them in the freezer for as long as you can.
  6. Once the mini cheesecakes are done cooling, slide a knife around the edges of each muffin cup to loosen them up. Then use a fork and your hands to help them out cleanly. As a delicious bonus, slice up some strawberries and arrange them however you like on top of the mini cheesecakes.
  7. We arranged ours in a flower pattern and added a dot of coconut butter in the middle to finish them off.

LV’s Monday Meandering … On MLK Day!

As I dropped my husband off at work this morning, one of the local radio stations was playing Dr. King’s “I Have A Dream” speech in its entirety. I sat in my car long after having reached my destination listening, because those words wouldn’t allow me to leave them unheard. Dr. King’s words have always given me chills and they did so, yet again, this morning. His words have elicited awe, inspiration and hope for many for more than seventy years.

And considering where our nation is today, I pondered whether his sacrifice had been in vain and my answer quickly became a resounding NO! We may have strayed from his vision somewhat, but I still believe that we will see that day he espoused so many years ago…that our children will judge others not by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character. As human beings we all have more commonalities than not, so I truly believe we will eventually get there. Peace! <3

I’m using my day off as a writing day. What are you doing today?

The Billionaire’s Miracle Family by Arabelle Stevens

Audrey Edlin’s life was completely under control with a predictable routine. She had a job she loved, friends, and a lovely home on Beacon Hill in Boston she inherited from her grandmother. Life was consistent, orderly, and comfortable. Except for the man-child living next door.

Donahue Alister lived in the townhouse connected to Audrey’s. He loved loud video-games, his raucous buddies, and pizza. He was born with a silver spoon in his mouth, so life was one big party to him. Or so it seemed to Audrey, who was nothing but annoyed by him.

Things change when a chubby, bundle of joy is left on Don’s doorstep, forcing the two neighbors to join forces for the welfare of little Chloe.

Sparks fly when they begin to see each other a little differently and realize that things, and people, aren’t always as they appear.

Kissing The Counsel by Jillian Riley

A fake marriage. A real baby. One huge mess.

Avery Price needs quick cash to save her bridal shop. When she discovers a way to win $50,000, she jumps at the chance. The only catch is, she has to get married or at least stage a convincing wedding. Her best bet is Beach Pointe’s most eligible bachelor. But he hates everything to do with marriage.

Veterinarian Dr. Jack Maddox is a magnet for every gold-digger in town, but Avery is the only one who’s ever walked out on the chance to share his bed. When he finds her in his kitchen in only an apron, he’s shocked that she’s changed her mind, but there’s a catch (of course).

Though he’d rather poke his eye out with a fork than even pretend to get married, he can handle a little acting for this fun-sized wildcat.

But, starting a family was never part of the deal…

Love Auction
by Lindsey Hart

OMG! Did I just bid and win a date with Shane Rempel for over one thousand dollars?!

What the hell was I thinking? Was I not the one who just said I would never spend that kind of money for a date with a stranger?!

Apparently, all sane thoughts just flew right out the moment HE walked up on that stage at the auction.

I was hooked line, sinker and all.

And let me tell you, if you spend that much money for a date, you definitely go on that date. So, I went.

And guess what? It kind of ended with me starting a war with the guy on the said date. And I even did a walkout.

Yeps and after that disastrous first meeting, you definitely do not expect the guy to turn up at your workplace asking for another date!

But he did. And guess what I did…

3 Awesome Reasons You Should Read The R Collection!

I have a book on sale. In fact all of my books with the exception of one box set is on sale from this weekend until well after Valentine’s Day (2/21/17).

For the purpose of this Newsletter, I’m pushing The R Collection, my two Den of Sin stories set in the posh Beaudelaire Hotel of New Orleans, Louisiana. This is a place for consenting adults to let their inhibitions go and have a little fun. Most often, they also find love.

So, I decided, since my book is a mere ninety-nine pennies, I still need to let you know why you should buy my book considering all the romance novels and novellas that are sure to be on sale for Valentine’s Day. So, I came up with 3 Awesome Reasons You Should (Buy and) Read The R Collection:

1. Valentine’s Day is February 14th. What better time to read two unique romances in one short sitting than Valentine’s Day? During this man-made holiday, it’s totally okay to think about your own romance, and to do something that will enhance it–ie., reading so you can live vicariously through someone else’s romance, which will likely inspire you to put a little romance in your own life. *hey, hey!*

2. Woman Power is in right now. Women have been marching recently to preserve their rights to retain control of their own bodies, for equal pay for equal work, to be treated fairly by our own government. The R Collection’s stories are about two very strong women who don’t feel they need to compromise who they are to have love. One is a breast cancer survivor and the other is a business owner who was jilted by a lover who wanted her to procreate on his timetable. They are both women we can admire.

3. The R Collection is only $0.99 (until February 21st), the price of a soda pop on a discount fast food menu. You can’t go wrong spending ninety-nine pennies on two novellas, right? So, why aren’t you one-clicking the Amazon Icon below right now?

See you on the other side!
