The 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop

Blog Hop:  12 Days of Christmas
Event Date:  December 1st  - 12th 2013

Butter Nut Balls
My mom's recipe and my family's favorite
1/2 lb. butter
4 Tbs. Sugar
1 Tsp. Vanilla
2 Cups Flour
1 Cup Chopped Pecans (Very Fine)
Powered sugar for rolling
Cream butter and sugar together. Add Vanilla. Mix in Flour, then chopped nuts. Bake in 350 degree  oven, 15-18 minutes. Cool slightly, then roll cookies in powered sugar to coat. Some say, these are almost as fun to make as throwing fireballs. But you'd have to check with Addison for that information. You can get to know her better by reading Whisper Cape. 
So, this holiday, are you ready to ...

Escape to a world where the impossible becomes possible and sparks ignite?
Whisper Cape, book 1 in the Whisper Cape Trilogy

“Grab your jacket.” He wrapped his arm around her, pulled her in close, cupped her chin in his hand, and tilted her head up toward his, their lips inches apart. “Do you trust me?” His voice was husky, his breath warm and her knees were about to turn to jelly.
“Yes, I think so. Do I have a choice?”
“No. Close your eyes,” he whispered.
She did as he requested as a weird sensation of air swept through every pore, every cell of her body.
“You can open your eyes now, you’re safe.”
Addie opened her eyes. He still held her in his arms, which was good because she almost fell over from the shock. She blinked as she looked around, recognizing Cael’s rented beach house, the red leather sofa and marble-topped coffee table from earlier that afternoon. It was dark except for the moonlight trickling in through the large window, giving the room a dreamy ambiance.
“How did we ...?”
Before she could finish her question, he lifted her chin up to his face and pressed his lips down on hers.
Pushing away, she turned her face from his. “How is this possible? We were just standing in my apart ...”
Without answering, he resumed kissing her. She started to pull away but then relaxed and tangled her fingers in his hair, pulling him closer to her.
After enjoying the kiss for a few seconds, Addie came to her senses and shoved her hands against his chest, stopping the kiss. “Wait. You need to explain ...”
Cael ignored her, silencing her with his lips once more. Addie lost herself in his tender embrace, unable to focus on anything else, which she knew was completely wrong. Every instinct told her she should be afraid, but she didn’t care.
His mouth traveled down to her neck as she raised her head to accept the slight graze of his teeth and titillating touch of his tongue just below her earlobe, sending quick pulses of excitement though her body.
She sighed, “You can’t keep silencing me with your kisses.”
“It’s working so far,” he whispered, then brought his mouth back to hers...
