Customers can’t seem to get enough red velvet. Like cupcakes, donuts, cake balls, and whoopie pies, red velvet creations are both homey and comforting and hip and cool. They are the latest retro-baking craze. Red velvet has conquered lots of new territory in recent years and Deborah Harroun’s The Red Velvet Lover’s Cookbook is the first and only book devoted to this hot topic. She has perfected the classics, as well as a host of new, inventive uses for this popular combination. In 50 recipes, and with full-color photos, Harroun has come up with all manner of red velvet donuts, waffles, pancakes, muffins, biscuits, icebox cakes, mug cakes, cheesecakes, and even a molten lava cake. Harroun also treats the reader to a dozen cookies, brownies, and bars, plus red velvet rolls and breads. Red velvet cannoli, eclairs, snowballs, churros, and truffles are the icing on the…cake, and provide red velvet lovers with just about any recipe they will ever need.
From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of A Discovery of Witches, a novel about what it takes to become a vampire.
On the battlefields of the American Revolution, Matthew de Clermont meets Marcus MacNeil, a young surgeon from Massachusetts, during a moment of political awakening when it seems that the world is on the brink of a brighter future. When Matthew offers him a chance at immortality and a new life free from the restraints of his puritanical upbringing, Marcus seizes the opportunity to become a vampire. But his transformation is not an easy one and the ancient traditions and responsibilities of the de Clermont family clash with Marcus's deeply held beliefs in liberty, equality, and brotherhood.
Fast-forward to contemporary Paris, where Phoebe Taylor--the young employee at Sotheby's whom Marcus has fallen for--is about to embark on her own journey to immortality. Though the modernized version of the process at first seems uncomplicated, the couple discovers that the challenges facing a human who wishes to be a vampire are no less formidable than they were in the eighteenth century. The shadows that Marcus believed he'd escaped centuries ago may return to haunt them both--forever.
A passionate love story and a fascinating exploration of the power of tradition and the possibilities not just for change but for revolution, Time's Convert channels the supernatural world-building and slow-burning romance that made the All Souls Trilogy instant bestsellers to illuminate a new and vital moment in history, and a love affair that will bridge centuries.
