No tricks from us today – just treats. We asked our authors which delicious indulgence best set-off their stories, and they came up with a feast fit for even the most dedicated sweet-tooth.
A huge box of chocolates done up with a glossy red satin bow – 1960’s style. Then you can sink into the world of 1961 Hindsight with authenticity. Extra points if you are wearing Maribou feather slippers.
Chocolate popping candy because it’s smooth and delicious like Ty the stripper’s dance moves, with lots of sudden, sweet surprises throughout!
Delicious mouthfuls of mango and strawberry flavoured chews. Sweet and juicy as the kisses exchanged by Tiffany and Miles at the Kissing School.
John Tilbrook thinks nothing says erotic like peanut butter smeared on Willa Heston.
Base is all about keeping the Zombies out and enjoying the hot sexy commandos.
Although Lisbeth in A Scandalous Wager seems sour she is a real sweetie underneath.
The heroine makes Candy Cane Vanilla Fudge. This would be great for Halloween too because you swirl food colouring which could look like blood.
Unstitched would go best with Fantales because they appear one way on the outside, yet underneath something entirely different and unpredictable is going on.
Dairy Milk Buttons would suit Jeffrey from Bound by Their Love, because like the chocolate Jeffrey is smooth and sweet.
Werther’s Original for the slow, warm melt, and they can be hard to crack if you bite too quickly. Classic Cate and Nick.
Like Pop Rocks, Honour Bound is full of tiny explosions – and only some of those are emotional.
Sugar coated almonds for No Place Like You. Must be heaps of these little bonbonnieres all over Mirabook once it’s up and running as a wedding venue.
They’re addicting. And HOT.
Mike from Out of Time would be picnic bar. He looks a little rough, but still tempting, and when you get to know him there is a chewy caramel and nougat heart and he’s very sweet.
Gemma from The House at the End of the Street would hand out the organic lollipops she sells in her toy shop. But Josh would insist she put them in black paper bags covered in skull and crossbones – and that might give her a clue as to where he’s been for the last ten years!
Because it’s a bitter sweet story of consequences and redemption, that’s twisty and chewy, but not as black as it might seem. Also good digestive properties.
