~ Book Synopsis ~
Frustrated mother of two, Brianne Hunter, escapes her bland life in rural Fennelton by embarking on a weekend away shopping with her best friend. On the drive to her friend Darlene’s estate, Brianne crashes her Jeep off the Mausoleum Road, and makes her way, bleeding and injured, to a stone ranch seeking help. There she encounters Dr. Robert Moss, whose spouse is in Europe spending their money. Thus begins an immediate attraction, and a wildly sensual coupling that essentially changes them both.

When the weekend tryst ends, Brianne returns home to the demands of her predictable life. Shortly thereafter, lifechanging losses occur for both Brianne and Dr. Moss. Then comes the day when Dr. Moss pays Brianne a house call, attempting to reignite their union; however, a revelation he delivers may be more than Brianne can accept. Yet Brianne cannot deny her heart’s passion, and returns to the ranch to deliver a disclosure of her own. In the end, the pair must decide if they will follow their passionate fate together or not.

Apples, anyone?
A sweet recipe & excerpt from the saucy love story
By Author Patricia Miller

I grew up in a modest, cozy bungalow with a big old apple tree in our front yard. As a kid, I climbed the tree and plucked apples to eat in the shade while I waited for the school bus. I ate wayyy too many apples, and probably a few worms! Ick, I know.

It’s no wonder that there are several apple references in THE MAUSOLEUM ROAD AFFAIR. One of the secondary characters in the novel even has “apple” in his name – Mr. George Appleton of Appleton Law Firm. Mr. Appleton is a plump, likeable lawyer who plays a role in a GIANT surprise for Brianne, one of many in this artistic, freckle-faced brunette’s life.

I adore all food and drinks made from apples: pie, crisp, juice, crumble, sauce, butter, cider, and slices dipped in gooey caramel. I go nuts for glossy red candy apples at the fall fair, and sour apple gummy rings!

Below is a short excerpt from THE MAUSOLEUM ROAD AFFAIR where handsome Dr. Moss serves his sexy guest, Brianne, a sweet apple dish.

And after the excerpt, I’ve shared my delicious, easy apple crumble recipe just for you!

Robert served them each coffees and dessert plates, each featuring a slice of apple pie with a slab of cheddar cheese and a blob of vanilla ice cream. “I baked for you myself,” he said, as he took a spot beside her at the table.
The scent of cinnamon and sugar wafted from the plate to her nose. “My, Robert, you are always full of surprises!” But this time it’s my turn for surprises, she thought.
Robert shoveled a healthy forkful of pie into his mouth. “I wanted to show you that I’m glad you came today,” he said.
“I felt terrible about the way we left things, and about the way I acted.” Brianne joined him in devouring the sweet dessert.
“You were understandably emotional. Besides, you’re darn cute when you’re angry,” said Robert. He playfully kicked Brianne’s bare foot under the table.
RECIPE: Warm Apple Crumble
Five large peeled apples, Granny Smith or Macintosh
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup flour
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup cold butter
2 handfuls of oats

Cut peeled apples into wedges and discard cores. Lightly grease a 9x13 glass baking dish. Spread apples across the bottom of the dish. Sprinkle the white and brown sugar over the apples. In a separate bowl, combine the rest of the ingredients (chop cold butter into smaller pieces first) and stir well. Spread mixture evenly over the apples and pat it all down. Bake 30-40 minutes in a preheated 350 degree oven until it bubbles and the apples are cooked. Take a tip from hot Dr. Robert Moss and serve your sweetie this treat with vanilla ice cream and slices of cheddar cheese. Dig in!
