I Created My Own Mocha Coffee Recipe That's High in Protein

I'm feeling so pleased with myself at the moment. Because I'm on a high protein diet, and I love coffee, (especially mochas) I perused recipes online for a way I could combine the two. 

I noticed that the majority of recipes all had the same three basic ingredients: high protein powder, fat-free milk, and coffee. So, I experimented.


Rather than use a powder, I prefer using Lean Body (with 40 grams of protein per package) or Muscle Milk 40 - chocolate flavor, of course. In a pinch, or when I'm on the road, I use Ensure Plus. Side note: Lean Body is $2.99 at Academy. Although Muscle Milk 40 is much more expensive, I can easily find it at any local gas station market.

I brewed my coffee. Then, in my mug, I poured it fourth full of the protein drink, a fourth of fat free milk, and the last half coffee. 

Not only is it delicious, but I don't have to add any sweetener!

Now I can have my mocha, my coffee, AND have added protein at the same time!

In a world divided by prejudice and hatred, only love can bridge the chasm.

As the daughter of the corporate king, Jessen Cade is duty-bound to honor her arranged marriage to a man she detests. Feeling trapped by family duty and a loveless future, she longs for more, straying to the Morgon side of the city.
Lucius Nightwing is the eldest son of the powerful Morgon clan, and the greatest enemy of Jessen’s father. When a bar-room brawl thrusts Jessen into his arms, his dragon roars to the surface, craving to sate his carnal hunger in the brown-eyed beauty. The beast in Lucius recognizes her as his own, even if the man refuses to admit the truth.

Bock Gammon is a freedom runner. A man with a space ship for hire. He has heard of Replacements and knows they existe, but he has never personally come across one. In fact, he finds the whole idea repugnant--growing a living being specifically for the purpose of harvesting his body parts. So do the governments in many of the galaxies who have declared Replacements illegal.Which is why he is stunned to discover his latest assignment is to bring a Replacement to one of the wealthiest men in the atta Dul system. If he hadn't so desperately needed the money, he wouldn't have accepted the job.

It doesn't take long for Bock to realize that Rhea 41070 isn't just one-of-a-kind, she's also unlike any woman he has ever met.  And the closer they get to the point of delivery, the more he knows he can't walk away and leave her behind to be dissected.  Somehow, he has to find a way to save her, despite the odds and hundreds of well-armed men awaiting their return.


Warning!  Contains idol worship, twisted old men, blackmail, apathy for human life, black market medicine, a shootout, a taste of the good life, and more gold than you can shake a stick at.

Sneak Peek Sunday - AEQUANA'S QUEST

Welcome to Sneak Peek Sunday!

Here are six paragraphs from my upcoming release, AEquana's Quest, Book 2 of the AEquana Series.


Blurb: It will take a very long time before AEquana heals from the abuse and torture she endured growing up in those government labs. But Talon's love is helping her forget and go forward with life.

Unfortunately, they stumble onto a multi-million dollar gem heist, and are targeted by those who think they're easy prey. Their enemies have no idea who they're up against when they try to take on an ex-Navy SEAL and his mermaid.

* * *
1. As she strapped the transmitter around her wrist, he glanced over her as she lay sprawled on the bottom of the boat, the tail's horizontal flukes arched over his tank of oxygen. The plasti-sheen skin glistened in the mid-morning sun. The suit adhered to her with its microscopic inner layer of adhesive, but it did nothing to shield her with any kind of protective covering. Heat and cold could easily penetrate the fine layer, as well as could probing eyes—which was the biggest reason why Talon refused to let anyone else come within sight of his wife once she’d prepared herself. Or else they would be able to see everything about her. Everything, including every inch of her cream-colored skin, the thatch of snowy curls at the juncture of her thighs, and those enticing dusky-rose nipples. Only a set of twenty-seven tiny puncture-like scars circling around her left hip, thigh, and buttocks marred her perfection. Talon knew every one of those scars, left behind by a bull shark’s attack a few months before. He knew them, had since kissed each one of them, and had learned a lot about himself in the days that had followed.
 
2. Reaching over, he lifted her chin so he could see into her face. Her eyes were expressionless. Waiting. “We’re going to take this slow and very, very carefully. First thing, right off the bat, when you meet Giles, if in any way you feel uncomfortable or uneasy around him, let me know immediately and we’ll call the whole thing off. Do you understand what I’m saying? You’re going to run this show. Not me. Not Giles. You. You will have the ability to stop any process, any examination with a simple word. And I’m going to be beside you every second, every step of the way.”

3. Jeters watched the SUV pull into the parking lot of the canoe rental shop and stopped. A moment later two people he instantly recognized emerged from the vehicle and strode over to where he was waiting by his patrol car. The big Indian was as intimidating-looking as he remembered. But, if anything, the willowy beauty taking his hand had grown more intoxicating.

4. “If you already knew the answer, why did you ask? Besides, having two pairs of eyes down there might help us find those diamonds quicker. And the sooner we can do that and go home, the happier I’ll be.” He turned around so she could see the worry he would no longer hide from her. “You’re not yourself, my love. And I swore to myself that day I took you out of that bunker I would never let any thing or any one ever hurt you again.”

5. She silently handed it over, then watched as he withdrew a hammer from behind the driver's seat. Closing the door, he went around to her side of the vehicle where he would be shielded from traffic. Placing both phones on the cement, he proceeded to pound them into oblivion. Æquana watched in the rearview mirror as he attacked the devices with something akin to viciousness. As if by demolishing them, he was getting back at Santo Mario for all the trouble and worry the man had caused. Venting his frustration in a way that would temporarily gratify his need for retribution.

6. Unable to resist, he lovingly kissed her again. "We're going to find out who this shark is. And when we do, and I promise we will, Deb is going to make certain he spends a long time behind bars. But in the meantime, I can't risk him getting his hands on you. The last time that happened, I thought I had lost you, and I nearly came unglued. I can't risk that happening again. Do you understand? That's why you and Buck need to hang back. If something does happen to me, the team will take you both away from here, out of harm's reach, where they can safeguard you. Maja, promise me you'll do that. For me. Because you love me."

Amanda Storey was sent by her company to a tiny rural town to convince the community that having a chain mega-supermarket built there would be a boon to their economy and job market.
 
She never showed up for the town hall meeting, even though the company insists she was scheduled to be there.  The motor inn where she had reservations claimed she never checked in, and police have not found any trace of her body or her car.

This is what really happened.

They are the cause of many legends, myths, and fairy tales. And they still live among us.

There are creatures from a parallel world called Breachers who, for hundreds of years, have been inadvertently pulled into our world. They are the truth behind the creatures normally considered to be mythic. Once on Earth, they cannot go back, and those who cannot cope become rabid. Murderers. And when they go berserk, they must be put down.

Jerrod Holt always wondered why he was selected to be part of the secret governmental organization. More perplexing is why his skills as a professional bodyguard are needed.

He discovers his partner assigned to help him bring down a Breacher is the one woman who had caught his eye the moment he saw her at their initial group meeting. Together, he and McKenna travel to Utah to confront a killer beast, not knowing that the terror will be all too real, and too damn close to home.

Warning: Contains bloody deaths, smart ass remarks, unbearable cold, a nightmare come to life, toe loss, rabbit farming, a search for the truth, and an unconditional love that defies all boundaries.

Four years ago Byron Shales was a manager for a department store. Now he hunts down and captures the newly zombie-fied dead, and resells them at auction to the highest bidder. What his buyers do with them after the sale is finalized is none of his business, and frankly he couldn’t care less.

His beliefs and apathy come to a sickening halt when he elects to keep one young woman for himself, and discovers that all his pre-conceived notions about these non-living creatures have been a lie. In fact, the truth about Rothsburg’s Disease may be more horrifying than the flesh-eating creatures it infects.

Six on Sunday - YOUR HEART, MY HOME

Six paragraphs from YOUR HEART, MY HOME - a sensuously erotic sci--fi/urban fantasy romance.

1. In the days that followed, Sherandar watched every news program regarding this man who called himself Quazar. With a Z. She scanned the YouTube videos catching the man in action. Although he never explained how he got his power, or why he was able to do the things he did, listening to him answer questions from the police and reporters and fans who managed to briefly corral him for an autograph verified one fact. As she'd suspected, this was no ordinary guy when it came to mentality. He may not be as smart as she was, but neither was he like those self-absorbed dicks she knew too well.

2. The bolt of lightning appeared from out of nowhere, slicing through the thunderheads like Zeus's fire to strike Quazar with an ear-shattering crack. Sherandar was barely aware of the scream ripping from her throat as she watched the figure crumple, to plummet down onto the roof of the building a block away.

3. Time froze as they stared at each other, their noses almost touching. She was acutely aware of his body where it pressed against hers. His nearness, like a soothing blanket of warmth, firmly laid along her abdomen and thighs. Her hands were touching his upper chest, her fingers splayed across the spray of stars that glowed in his light.

4. His confession made her laugh, and he joined her. And it was then she believed she would never again be as happy or as content again in her life than she was right now. Despite all that she had been through, after what she and Quazar had endured and survived together, and despite the fact that Bob the Destroyer was probably scouring the planet, looking for them, this perfect moment in time would never repeat itself.

5. He glanced into the living room, at the wall across from the sofa where the bedroom was located on the adjacent side. Even with no makeup, her face and skin bearing the burns she'd suffered during their escape, and her thick hair wild and in need of a brush, she was the most beautiful, the most desirable woman he had ever seen. And to make things worse, her smartass attitude only enhanced her attractiveness because he knew she had the brains to back it up. The woman was more intelligent than him, as hard as it was to admit. Yet, there was a lot of vulnerability within her. A lot of tenderness and caring. It was her heart she tried to protect the most with that gruff exterior. And when she'd collapsed at his feet after he had melted their cell and blockhouse to the point where he could take off, there had been no second doubts in his mind where he had to take her.


6. "Don't tell me I was out of line, Captain. First, he kidnapped me and Sherandar. He kept us prisoners and tried to starve us to death. Then he had Sherandar kidnapped again, but this time he tortured her. Afterwards, he tried to cover up his crime by attempting to sink the boat. I don't care if I yell from the uppermost spire on the Saint James bridge. I want that man permanently stopped. I want him brought to justice. And I will see that bastard pay," Quazar snapped.

Once upon a time, there lived a man with five rambunctious daughters. They were an average American farming family except for one minor detail. The man was a warlock, and all of his daughters were witchlets—half witch and half human.

Rick Carr and his friend Booey come to Toppers Cove seeking employment at the seafood plant. For Rick, it is a chance to try and re-establish roots on the eastern coast, plus he hopes he can make a life out here.

He never expects to meet someone like Kimberly Blakeney. One glance, and he knows he's fallen in love, until he discovers she's a witch. A real witch. But despite that revelation, his feelings don’t change.


The only problem is, before he can sweep her off her feet, he first has to pass what she calls a "sex hex test" to prove they are meant to be together. Rick doesn’t mind, but what he doesn’t realize is that his best friend isn’t about let him fall under her spell...even if it means taking drastic measures.

After being banished from her own world because her people deeply feared the scope of her powers, an anomaly shoots Sah'Reena toward Earth and the one man in the universe meant to be her mate.

No one, least of all Dr. Robin Dickenson, expected what they discovered when they opened the alien craft captured by the space shuttle Liberty while on a routine space mission. But from the moment he first sees the star girl, Robin is captivated.

Near death, and never expecting to see anything again beyond the endless void of space, Sah'Reena isn't certain, at first, that her mind isn't playing tricks on her.  But the handsome face of the stranger she sees gives her hope for life when she'd thought all hope was gone. 

Warning!  Contains carbon dioxide poisoning, severe sleep deprivation, baked potatoes with crackers and honey, challenging authority, kosher cooking, dissolving aircraft, and an ability that could wipe out an entire planet.

Dear Linda - Re: My Books on Kobo

Dear Linda,

I saw a bunch of books on your website that are not on Kobo. Do you plan to have them up for sale there soon?

A fan from Germany


Dear Fan,

Thank you for writing. That's a good question! As an independent author uploading to Kobo, their Terms of Service Agreement state I can only upload books that are $2.99 or higher. Which means my $.99 and $1.99 are not eligible. But be assured you can order any of my ebooks through my website, using PayPal, and I will personally email the format of your choice to you.

Thanks again for contacting me!

Chantal Gadoury is my Guest Author Tonight on "Other Worlds of Romance" on Blog Talk Radio

Show time is 11 pm et/10 pm ct
If you like Greek mythology, you won't want to miss this show!

* * *
What if you were the missing piece in one of the most famous Greek Mythology Romances? 

Seven Seeds of Summer follows the story of Summer, a college art student who has grown up in a house full of Greek mythology and legends. Summer grew up with a love for the darkest of all Gods: Hades, which caused tension between her and her mother. Summer comes home to Point Judith, Rhode Island, to find a mysterious figure on their family beach. The figure comes to her with questions about a familiar myth of her childhood: of Persephone and Hades. He proceeds to tell her of a new version of the story with a different ending that Summer never knew; an ending that includes herself. 

A trip to Greece leads to tragic twists, leaving Summer in the arms of the strange figure whom she had met before. He takes her on a whirlwind through the busy streets of Athens, to the lowest point of Greece where his lair awaits: The Underworld. Determined to find out the secret of herself and her piece in the story, Summer goes with him, and tries to make herself at home in his world. 

Summer has to decide to follow her heart or follow the same footsteps of the mysterious woman in her past life.

They are the cause of many legends, myths, and fairy tales. And they still live among us.

Arik Hawthorne prefers to be a loner. He has a dark secret to protect, and as a professional kick boxer, he's able to work off the wild energy that fills his life.

His whole world changes when he is partnered with Corinth Marya, and they are ordered to find and stop the creature that's  killing innocent people in New Mexico.

If going after the Breacher isn't bad enough, he finds himself seriously and dangerously attracted to the army lieutenant. There is no way he can let her find out about his real self, but neither can he deny the possibility that she may be his one and only chance at love and happiness.

They never foresee the danger that will threaten their lives, or the passion that will pose an even greater problem.

Dragons, anyone?

Warning! Contains unrelenting heat, calling for sex advice, invisible targets, hamburgers, pistol-packing, vengeful dirt, and hard and hot leathery love.

They were deadly enemies, until a greater threat made them unwilling allies...and lovers.

Sherandar is the most cunning adversary Quazar has ever faced. He never knows when or where his worst nightmare will strike, but when she does, it's with the single-minded purpose to taunt him. Ridicule him. And to make his life a living hell. Regular cuffs and jail cells can't hold her, yet somehow, someway, Quazar has to bring her reign to a screeching halt.

But when a new enemy makes himself known, and tries to kill both Quazar and Sherandar, the two combatants realize the only way to defeat this deadly threat is to call a temporary truce and join forces.

It isn't until she lies broken, bloodied, and dying in his arms that Quazar realizes she has become more to him than his temporary ally. He has fallen in love with her.

Warning! Contains deadly necklaces, delectable desserts, a skintight costume, an antique stove, dining table sex, and a bored megalomaniac who has no qualms about killing because he just wants to watch the world burn.

KNIGHT OF DARKNESS 
Erotic Sci-Fi/Urban Fantasy Romance
ISBN 978-0-9859300-4-2
Word Count:  45.4K
$2.99


Sorrow Knight knew that at any time the U'Nar would attack Earth, but he needed a few more days to come out of chrystasis before he could fight the deadly enemy. With his soul sword, Rall, he and the handful of other Surge Knights would gather wherever the enemy landed, and drive them off this world. A world with so many wonderful sights and surprises. A world that contained a woman named Rachel, who had captured his heart and his imagination, but who was forbidden to him by his laws.

Rachel Grohl often wondered about the skinny, dishwater-blond young man living in the apartment across the breezeway from her. His shyness, as well as his clean but well-worn clothes, tugged at her heart. They'd barely spoken a dozen words to each other since he moved in a few weeks ago, but she had to thank him for helping her the other day. Maybe asking him over to dinner would work.

They shared one dinner, one touch, and one kiss that led to one night of love. A love which could ultimately avert the total eradication of the human race.


Warning: Contains tiny men skirts, lasagna, human metamorphosis, glass table tops, IOUs, comrades-in-arms, bomb shelters, and an invading alien force that will haunt everyone's nightmares.

John Eagletalon had no idea what the government intended when it assigned him to its latest secret project - an icy blonde beauty with a miraculous ability.  All he knew was that he owed Uncle Sam fourteen more months of his life, and if it meant being this woman's partner and bodyguard until he'd paid his dues, he'd find a way to endure the ordeal. 

Until he discovered what the government had been doing to her.  And at the same time, discovered he was falling hopelessly in love with her.   

Now it's no longer a matter of protecting her.  It's a matter of keeping her out of their clutches. 

And making her his.

Warning! Contains a wise Indian saying, cold showers, extreme hazardous pay, corrupt scientists, sorry sons of bitches, chains and collars, things that bite, and a two thousand mile journey that ends in an incredible night of love.
