Breakfast In Bed - Tawny Weber

Picture it, you're all comfy-cozy in a plush, down covered bed. Maybe its winter, flames are crackling in the fireplace across the room. The soft scent of the flowers overflowing the bedside table fills the room. Pure decadence, yes? You can even imagine (its better this way, really!) your favorite dream hunk there in bed with you, one arm slung over your waist as he snuggles you close (sure, go for the husband if you have to. I'm imagining Johnny Depp myself).

Now, there at your fingertips is a phone. All you have to do is dial star, and the concierge of this luxury resort will bring you anything you'd like. Anything. A bowl of warm chocolate sauce, perfect for dipping (what you dip is up to you). Hot, fluffy pancakes with a side of warm fruit? Maybe crepes (can you tell I'm getting hungry?) Anything you desire, its right there at your fingertips.

This was part of the fantasy I created when I wrote my April Blaze, COMING ON STRONG. The heroine is an event planner and the hero has an event in desperate need of planning. Perfect combination, right? Of course, her idea is to turn his prosaic luxury resort into a sexual escape for the rich and famous - catering to, of course, their every decadent desire.

I had so much fun coming up with sexy ideas, decadent treats and wild experiences for my characters and the guests at the resort. But I have to admit, my favorite fantasy in this whole story was thinking of what I'd do if I was at a luxury resort like this (and no, its not what you might be thinking *g*) .

Breakfast in bed. A tray delivered to my cozy, warm bed. Plump pillows propped up behind me, the aesthetic appeal of the china and crystal on my tray, and most of all... Food. So many yummy possibilities for the perfect breakfast in bed. My only requirement? That it include tea.


If you could have breakfast served to you in bed - you don't have to cook a thing or even consider cleaning up - what would you have? Your ideal, fantasy breakfast? Feel free to share recipes, I'm a big
fan of recipes *g* I'll chose one of the comments to win a copy of their choice of any book in my backlist - so be sure to hang out and chat!!

Tawny Weber is usually found dreaming up stories in her California home, surrounded by dogs, cats and kids. When she’s not writing hot, spicy stories for Harlequin Blaze, she’s shopping for the perfect pair of boots or drooling over Johnny Depp pictures (when her husband isn’t looking, of course). Tawny’s most recent Blazes: COMING ON STRONG and GOING DOWN HARD are out April/May of 2009. You can visit her on the web at www.tawnyweber.com

Beth said...

Yum! Now I'm hungry *g*

I'd have stuffed French toast, hashbrowns, fresh fruit and vanilla cappuccino with lots of whipped cream :-)

Oh, another favorite is toasted cinnamon bread with a warm glaze (like the glaze you'd use on cinnamon rolls *g*) That's my son's favorite breakfast!

I loved Coming On Strong :-) Belle and Mitch are a fantastic couple!

Jane said...

I would have pancakes, scrambled eggs, hash browns with onions and a buttered poppy seed bagel.

Tawny said...

Oh Pat, I was drooling over quiche crepes *g* I wanted the recipe!!! I love both so much the idea of mixing them together had me a little giddy.

Beth, that sounds yummy! And Jane - mmmm, any breakfast with potatoes is good by me!!

These sound FAB - I'm drooling and starving both at the same time LOL

Marie said...

Here's a recipe I found for a "Baked french toast casserole". I haven't tried it yet, but it sounds delicious!

Mmm, Marie, I might have to try that this weekend. Of course, I'd have to make it then run to the bedroom and yell for someone to bring it to me LOL
