Bethany’s It’s-Too-Hot-to-Cook Summer Pasta Salad
This recipe sounds a little wacky, but the sweet and tart flavors really blend together for a fabulous light summer meal, when just the thought of turning on the oven makes you sweat! Serve with ice-cold lemonade, or here in the South, a tall glass of your favorite sweet tea.
In a large bowl, combine chicken, pasta, celery, onions, pineapple, oranges and kiwi. In a small bowl, mix the next six ingredients. Pour over chicken mixture. Toss to coat. Cover and chill for several hours. Toss with almonds just before serving.

New Secrets Are Here!
Want a Peek?
It’s July, and two new Secrets anthologies are hot off the presses! Very hot!
And now, just for readers of Red Sage Confidential, here’s a sneak peek of Bad to the Bone by Natasha Moore in Volume 24.
“BAD TO THE BONE really stood out for me. I could relate to Annie completely. She was the nerd in high school and suddenly she re-appears smoking hot. Luke was downright yummy and I agreed whole heartedly with her wanting to seduce him..”
~ Amanda Haffery, Dark Angel Reviews
She’s a good girl who wants to be bad, and he’s a bad boy who wants to be good. At her class reunion, Annie Shane sheds her good girl reputation through one wild weekend with Luke Kendall. But Luke is done playing the field and wants to settle down. What would a bad girl do?

“I don’t own a car,” she said. She looked around at all the doorways lining the empty hallway. She could hardly believe she was walking down a dim hotel hallway with a man to his room. “Do you have a car here?”
“Yeah. It’s out in the parking lot.”
“Well, that wouldn’t work, would it? There’s all those big security lights. Maybe we could drive out to a dark road somewhere, huh? What do you think?”
“To have sex?” Luke stopped halfway down the hall and slid his key card in the lock. He turned back to look at her and the gleam in his eye heated her even more. “How about a bed?”
He opened the door and motioned her in. She stepped into his hotel room and tried to ignore the pounding of her heart. A king-sized bed dominated the small space. “Well, it’s a bit conventional, but I guess it’ll have to do.”
She heard him close the door. She felt him standing behind her. The heat from his body seared her skin and they weren’t even touching. She wished he’d take the first step. Say something, or reach out to her. But she knew this was her night, her idea, her step to take. She closed her eyes for a moment and took a deep breath. Was she ready to do this or not?

Frontal Assault by Chevon Gael
When Rick Steele’s tour of duty in Iraq ends, he returns home to the loving arms and welcoming body of his wife, Angela.
And then, almost immediately afterwards, he disappears.
Angela can’t take it any more. The worry, the stress, the loneliness. She’s always supported Rick’s goals, but now he won’t even tell her what’s he’s thinking or feeling. How can they be partners if he isolates himself? They can’t be. Is divorce the only option?
No. There is one other option. Rick knows that it’s time for something big, bold, and daring. He’s a soldier, a man on a mission. He will reclaim his wife, by force if necessary …
… by Frontal Assault.
by K.C. Sehlhorst
Maggie has seen some pretty strange things in her time, but she’s never seen a dead man rise up from a gurney and run out of the operating room. She’s never seen a dead man fling himself through a window and plummet to the earth, only to get up and keep running. She’s never seen a dead man … who was really an angel.
Gideon isn’t just any angel, though. He’s a fallen one, charged with the duty of closing demon portals to hell before innocent human souls can be compromised. And he has exposed Maggie to a dangerous truth, to killer demons, even to Lucifer himself.
There’s only one option for Gideon. He must protect Maggie at all costs. Too bad she doesn’t want his protection….
Until next month, happy reading!
