Beer-Marinated Steaks: Guest Berengaria Brown!

It's Too Yummy Tuesday!
On select Tuesdays I'll share delicious recipes inspired by my books! And today, I have a special guest author who will be sharing a tasty treat inspired by one of her stories. Welcome, Berengaria Brown!

Thank you for inviting me over to visit with you, today, Jade.
“Seducing Susannah,” my short little MMF story, released from Torquere on 16 October.

Susannah is at her company’s annual cookout, trying to convince her friend Kate not to get drunk and do anything stupid. Kate goes her own way, so Susannah takes a walk to fill in an hour, after which she hopes Kate will be ready to go home. While she walks, she thinks of two very yummy men she knows, Quinn and Micah. Unfortunately they left the cookout earlier. When she finds the men naked among the trees, they invite her to go home with them. Can she do that? Better yet, should she?


A great cookout recipe: Steaks marinated in beer.

1 1/4 cups beer
1 tbsp. dry mustard
1 tsp. ground ginger
4 tbsp. soy sauce
1 tbsp barbecue sauce
2 tbsp. sugar or honey
1 minced cloves garlic

Make sure steaks are completely thawed.Mix ingredients. Set your steaks in a deep dish. Lay them flat and pour your beer marinade over and cover. Let them soak the day before cooking, flipping them half way through.

Excerpt from "Seducing Susannah":

"How about a swim before we eat then," suggested Micah.

"I don't have a swimsuit with me."

"No one can see in. Quinn I and I often swim naked. I like the feeling of the water sliding over my skin, warming yet cooling me at the same time."

Susannah stared into his eyes. Their hazel depths were shimmering with green and gold specks that burned with lust. She shivered in response and once again her panties dampened as the thought of swimming naked -- doing anything naked -- with these men revved her engines from zero to sixty in a nanosecond.

She turned slowly looking in all directions. Certainly there was no other house visible from where they stood. "Okay,"

Micah toed off his loafers, unsnapped his jeans and pulled them down, then threw his T-shirt over his head, almost faster than Susannah could comprehend. Her brain was just saying, "He's not wearing underwear," as he pulled her into his arms and asked, "Need help to get naked?"

Without waiting for a response, his hands were on her zipper before her brain had processed his comment. Su stood quietly as he pulled her jeans and panties down in one swift move, then she kicked off her sandals and pulled her T-shirt over her head. Again, before she could think, he had her bra unsnapped and was drawing it down her arms. "You're a mighty smooth operator, Micah Rogers."

He grinned, sending shards of green and gold through his eyes again. Then he swooped her into his arms and jumped into the pool.
