Sweetness and Cross-Overs by Kim Fielding

sweetness andcross-overs


Hi! I’m Kim Fielding, and I’m very excited to announce the arrival of my new Dreamspun Desires book, A Full Plate! If you’re in the mood for a sweet little opposites-attract romance, this may fit your tastes exactly.

How do you feel about crossovers between stories? I’m not talking here about true series, but rather situations in which characters from one book appear—maybe just briefly—in another book. A cameo, perhaps, or a brief intersection of paths.

If you’ve read my stories, you may have already guessed that I love these crossovers. For some reason it makes me happy to envision all these imaginary people living in the same imaginary world, going about their individual businesses but sometimes bumping into each other. I think for this to work well, the author has to make sure that the intersections feel natural and that readers who haven’t read all their books won’t be confused. Stephen King does an especially good job of this.

I’ve had crossovers to varying extents in some of my stories. For example, the people from the Bones series have interacted with the guys from Speechless a couple of times, most notably in the (free!) short story, “The Gig.” In Ante Up, Ante makes a passing reference to a certain werewolf from Portland. In Astounding!, John and Carter make a quick stop at the little store run by Will and Colby from The Tin Box.

So here’s where I admit—and, I hope, tempt you—that A Full Plate contains a brief intersection with Love Is Heartless. If you haven’t read about Nevin and Colin, don’t worry, you won’t be lost. But if you have, you might enjoy a brief peek back into their world (although they don’t personally appear).

Do you like crossovers? What are some of your favorites? Please comment with them.

To sweeten the pot, I offer a recipe from my old tin recipe box. A friend gave it to me over 25 years ago; I have no idea where she originally got it.


Caramel Pull-Aparts

2 loaves frozen bread dough
1 large or 2 small packages cook-and-serve vanilla-butterscotch pudding mix
½ cup butter, softened
2 Tbs milk
1 cup brown sugar
½ tsp cinnamon

Thaw bread; do not let it rise. Cut one loaf into small cubes and place in 9×13 pan. Melt butter. In medium bowl, mix pudding mix, butter, milk, sugar, and cinnamon. Beat until smooth. Pour over 1st loaf. Cut up second loaf and place pieces on top. Cover and place in fridge overnight or 2 ½ to 3 hours on countertop. Bake at 375F for 30 minutes.

Opposites come together for a spicy surprise.

Bradford “Tully” Tolliver has everything—money, a great car, a beautiful condo, and a promising career as one of Portland’s hottest young lawyers. Sure, he puts in long hours and has no social life to speak of, but who needs romance when corporations pay top dollar for his expertise? He hesitates when a colleague asks if her cousin can live with him, but the arrangement will last less than a year, and then the cousin—Sage Filling—will return to his tiny hometown.

But Sage is handsome and intriguing, and his cooking makes Tully swoon. Sage has obligations back home, though, and Tully has offers he might not refuse from a persistent—and very wealthy—ex. Since Tully and Sage each have a full plate, can they make room for a side of love?


Author Bio:

Kim Fielding is the bestselling author of numerous m/m romance novels, novellas, and short stories. Like Kim herself, her work is eclectic, spanning genres such as contemporary, fantasy, paranormal, and historical. Her stories are set in alternate worlds, in 15th century Bosnia, in modern-day Oregon. Her heroes are hipster architect werewolves, housekeepers, maimed giants, and conflicted graduate students. They’re usually flawed, they often encounter terrible obstacles, but they always find love.

After having migrated back and forth across the western two-thirds of the United States, Kim calls the boring part of California home. She lives there with her husband, her two daughters, and her day job as a university professor, but escapes as often as possible via car, train, plane, or boat. This may explain why her characters often seem to be in transit as well. She dreams of traveling and writing full-time.
