Fitch Donovan never thought a lap dance could change his life, but from the moment the gorgeous dancer's lips touch his, his world comes screeching to a halt. No matter how hard he tries, he can't shake the desire that rocks him to his core. He's longed for this passion all his life—he just never dreamed he'd find it with another man.
Sharing a soul-shaking kiss with a straight boy is the kind of drama Ansel Becke just doesn't need. Spotlights aren't made for two and Ansel prefers to keep things on a one-night-only basis. So when Fitch shows up asking for an encore, Ansel knows he should send his gorgeous ass packing.
Though Ansel tries to pretend that what's between him and Fitch is far from fabulous, there's something about the big, burly contractor that makes Ansel's world sparkle in a way no amount of glitter ever could. And Fitch will do whatever it takes to convince Ansel that when the thing you need most in the world falls right into your lap, you'd be a fool to let it go.
She started writing stories in high school and hasn’t stopped. Now, her characters like to get frisky under the covers – or the stars, they’re not picky. She’s a thirty-something, newly married, world traveler who devours books like they were candy.

Ansel Becke, the MC in Fierce & Fabulous, enjoys cooking and has begun a tradition of Sunday dinners where all his friends come to eat. During the course of the novel, we see Ansel cooking a tradition German meal. This recipe was handed down to him from his grandmother and there is a funny story about it in the book. I won’t spoil the fun, you’ll just have to read Fierce & Fabulous to find out the odd history of this recipe.
Oma Richter’s Famous Käse Spätzle
For the Spätzle
- 4 eggs
- 1/3 cup milk
- 2 tsp salt
- 2 cups flour
- 4 tbsp butter (unsalted)
- 1 tsp pepper (white preferred)
- ¼ tsp nutmeg
Whisk together the milk, eggs, & salt then add the flour slowly until combined. Place your Spätzle maker over a large pot of salted boiling water and begin pouring the batter to make your tiny dumplings. This takes practice so you may need a few tries to get the right length and consistency.
Cook the Spätzle for 1 to 2 minutes until they begin to float to the surface then remove with a slotted spoon.
For the Käse Casserole
- 2-3 cups shredded Emmentaler cheese
- 2 tbsp butter
- 2 small onions (sliced)
- Salt & pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 325 ° F. Sauté onions in a skillet with butter until tender & just slightly caramelized. This will take about 5 to 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, butter casserole dish. When the onions are ready, layer half of your boiled Spätzle and season with additional salt & pepper then sprinkle half of your cheese. Continue with the final portion of Spätzle and the rest of the cheese. Top with onion mixture.
Bake uncovered for 20 to 30 minutes or until bubbly and browned on top.
