For the Dough:
2-1/2 c. all purpose flour, 1/4 c. granulated sugar, 1-1/2 tsp. baking powder, 1/2 tsp. baking soda, 1/2 tsp salt, 1 c buttermilk, 5 Tbls butter, melted.

For the Icing:

1 pkg (8 oz) of cream cheese (room temp), 2 cups of powdered sugar, 1/2 cup of margarine, 1 tsp vanilla (Maggie goes heavy on the icing.)

Directions: (oven 425)

· Combine filling ingredients in a small bowl, then mix with a fork until well blended.

· In a another, larger bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together buttermilk and 4 Tbls melted butter, then pour into the middle of the dry ingredients. Stir together until dough just comes together (do not over mix.) Kneed a bit with your hands until the dough forms into a ball, then slice it in half.

· On a lightly floured surface, roll each half into a 12×8″ rectangle Spread half the filling mixture into the center, then roll. Pinch together edges, and cut into 8 slices. Place both cut rolls in a non-stick sprayed 11×8″ pan. Brush rolls with remaining Tbls of melted butter and bake for 15 minutes, or until golden brown.

· To make the icing, beat all ingredients together with a mixer until smooth. Spread the icing on the hot rolls and enjoy!

Tucker's Fall


Scandalized professor Maggie Cisco returns to her hometown to lick her wounds and reconsider her future. Her years of personal and professional research into the BDSM lifestyle has landed her in jail, in divorce court and now in the headlines of more newspapers than she cares to count. The worst of all? The entire debacle is being blamed on a bestselling book she hasn’t even read!

Just when she thinks her only solution is a tell all memoir, a snowstorm puts her in the path of stunningly handsome, insanely rich and equally intense, Tucker Lewis.

Tucker remembers Maggie well. They once shared a mind-numbing kiss at the annual St. Mary’s carnival when her boyfriend wasn’t looking. No stranger to scandal, he looks past public opinion to the submissive craving a master’s touch and decides then and there what he wants. He’s going after Maggie and her heart’s kinkiest desires.

Unfortunately, no amount of money can change the sins of the past and when they’re certain they know everything there is to know about each other, one discovers a secret they aren’t prepared for.
