Top 5 List & Giveaway - Quicksilver Soul by Christine D' Abo Blog Tour

I'm so excited to welcome Christine D' Abo to the blog today. She is here to share her Top 5 Most Romantic Desserts. Welcome, Christine!


I love food – cooking it as much as eating it. Over the years I’ve made quite a few desserts for my husband and I to try. Here are a few of my favorite ones to whip up.

Chocolate Fondue with fruit. There’s nothing better than talking with your loved one as you dip, swirl and lick chocolate off pieces of fresh fruit. If you do the prep together, it gives you more time to not only spend as a couple, but have fun in the kitchen together.

Home-made Truffles. I did up a batch of these for Valentine’s Day this year. They were surprisingly easy to make and a big hit with my hubby. And yes, there might have been finger licking when they were done. 

Ice Cream. Yes, I know, not very exciting. However, if you’re sharing your ice cream with your loved one, you have to sit a whole lot closer. At that distance, lots of long looks (and longer licks) can become quite the temptation.

Chocolate covered strawberries/cherries/blueberries/etc. This is a classic for a reason. Bring a plate covered with this delicious treats to a more comfortable location and see how much fun you can have. Simple to make and a treat to enjoy.

Raspberry Parfaits. The layers! The cream! Only use one spoon and you’re bound to have fun playing around with this dessert. If you’re not a fan of raspberries, you can switch this out for anything. 


About Quicksilver Soul

Nicola Tesla has never needed a man to complete her life. A gifted engineer, she has always had her experiments to keep her company-or she did, before her vile boss stole them. Now she's working at the Archives in New London, where the memories of the dead are stored. But it isn't long before Nicola discovers she's being watched . . . by a most intriguing, sinfully sexy man.

Archivist Emmet Dennison should be busy extracting memories from the dead. Instead he's been asked to keep an eye on the brazen, strikingly beautiful Nicola Tesla. Soon Emmet and Nicola are shaken by an attraction neither of them wants. Yet when a nefarious man takes them hostage, Nicola and Emmet will need to rely on their attraction, and the growing bond between them, to stop a madman hellbent on destroying New London forever
