I adore coffee ice cream. Occasionally, my husband and I splurge and head to a little ice cream shop called The Love Boat that has been in business since the 1940s. They make their own ice cream in-house and provide it to restaurants as well. The word “delicious” does not even begin to describe it. There are lots of flavors. My husband loves raspberry cheesecake which is luscious. I find it hard to believe that ice cream companies haven’t tried this combination. Wow!

I’m so looking forward to reading “His Mistletoe Bride.” I sure do hope I’m selected as a winner! :-)

Oh my word! I meant to add how much I want to read “Season for Surrender” too. You two ladies are such fabulous authors and I love reading your novels. Have you two thought about writing a book together?

I overindulge in reading. I make myself late on assignments or appointments and I don’t get enough sleep. Shameful, I know. :)

Like a true blooded book addict, I “overindulge” in buying more books despite having a pile of books waiting for me to read in my room. I just can’t stop myself from buying more, every time I visit my favorite book store, they’re like calling me and saying “buy me.” =)

Wow, that’t great! I wanted to read this book for sooo long!
Oh, and I overindulge in reading and buying books and more books. I’m a book worm, I can’t help it. It takes most of my free time.

Good morning, everyone! Vanessa, thanks again for joining me for the chat. :)

Connie, homemade coffee ice cream? That sounds AMAZING. Thanks for the kind words about our books!

Janice, I’ve been known to do that too. Just one more chapter…ok, one more…well, maybe just one more…

Lee–you know what authors love to hear! As a reader, I do that too. I don’t want to miss out on a great story.

Adela, book-buying is an impossible habit to kick, isn’t it? Not that I’ve ever tried very hard!

Thanks for hosting me today, Theresa! It’s lovely to be here. And fun topic! Coffee ice cream, book addictions, y’all are ladies after my own heart! I would say that I also have a book buying addiction, which tends to drive my hubby crazy. He’s a big proponent of getting books out of the library, which is great, but I hate waiting for a book I really want. Ergo, the charge card comes out!

Gummies… That’s why I no longer buy them in bulk anymore… Or I’ll finish them in one setting.

Congrats on both of your books!

thanks for a fun post and congrats on the new release! Oy vey! Desserts and coffee are my nemesis!

Books and Chocolate are what I overindulge in. Books are great to overindulge in, but chocolate not so much. Chocolate and I have a love/hate relationship.I love chocolate and I hate the pounds I gain from it. I have both books on my TBR list.

I don’t eat sweets that often, maybe once every six months or so, but if I can get some Tiramisu or Black Forest cake and I’ll sit and practically eat the whole thing.
Congrats on the books, ladies.

Wonderful blog this is the 1st time I been here!
I love the Regency romances I can’t get enough of them.

Theresa Romain said in October 9th, 2012 at 11:36 am

Ha–Vanessa, I’m the same way! I get hardcovers from the library, but paperbacks (especially romances) are mine, all mine.

May, my nemesis is Jelly Bellys. I adore those things and can’t be sane about how many I eat.

erinf1–both delicious, and when they’re combined, even better!

Mary, you’re right! The great thing about a book addiction is that it has no side effects (except for maybe sleepy eyes from a late night of reading). Thanks for adding these books to your TBR list–hope you enjoy.

Joanne, yum. Those sound like some wonderful special-occasion desserts; hard not to indulge!

Penney, likewise. :) Glad you found the blog–thanks for stopping by!

Vanessa Kelly said in October 9th, 2012 at 12:14 pm

Baked goods are my nemesis. There’s hardly a cake or cupcake that does not whisper evil temptation in my ear!

Actually, now that I think about it, books are a necessity not an indulgence. So I don’t have to feel guilty about them!

Yazmin Rangel said in October 9th, 2012 at 12:17 pm

My indulgence is books. If there is a book that I like I get itchy until I have it. lol. I love to read! ;)

Beebs said in October 9th, 2012 at 1:31 pm

Ummm…..coffee, chocolate, books…..all the time. My latest indulgence is Haagen Dasz Bailey’s ice cream Yum! Great interview. :)

catslady said in October 9th, 2012 at 2:15 pm

Books and cats. They are like potato chips – you can’t have just one lol. Reading a good book with a cat (or more) purring next to me is my happy place and I overindulge especially late at night.

I over indulge myself in a good romance novel especially paranormal romance. I usually lose track of time. Most people tell me its an obsession.

tr-avatar.jpg
Vanessa Kelly said in October 9th, 2012 at 6:57 pm

Ladies, as I said earlier, books are a necessity, not an indulgence! And Aniya, I totally get how reading feels like an obsession, but I think people who say that might be people who don’t read a lot!

tr-avatar.jpg
Theresa Romain said in October 9th, 2012 at 7:27 pm

Vanessa, your talk of baked goods has me looking all shifty-eyed at the freezer, where I *know* I have some cookie dough! Baking time later? I think so.

Yazmin, I know that feeling. And then once you get hold of that book…yay!

Beebs, that sounds great! I’ll have to see if we have that flavor here.

catslady, that gives me such a cozy mental picture. :)

Aniya, a good romance novel is a very fine way to spend the time–enjoy!

Vanessa, I certainly think of books as a necessity! Though when I stay up waaay too late reading, is that an indulgence? (Actually, that usually feels like a necessity too. How are you just supposed to STOP reading a great story?)

Janie McGaugh said in October 9th, 2012 at 7:50 pm

Books and chocolate, though books probably win out as my biggest temptation to overindulge or, at least, the one I give into most often!

Alyn said in October 9th, 2012 at 9:00 pm

I over indulge in cakes, brownies and doughnuts.

Ann S. said in October 9th, 2012 at 9:01 pm

Of course books, but give me a pint of Chunky Monkey and I am a goner. Give me a container of that (they are single serving, right?) and a book, HEAVEN

Linda Thum said in October 9th, 2012 at 10:01 pm

A good bone melting romance book! I’ve read up to the wee hours of the morning before (~3am) on a working day no less. That means having to be up again at 6am. *panda eye syndrome*. If the next day is a non working day I’d just ignore the time. My worst was reading till 6am. It was starting to get light; I heard the rest of the house stirring & hurriedly switched the light off & turned in before I got caught. LOLz!

tr-avatar.jpg
Theresa Romain said in October 10th, 2012 at 9:39 am

Janie–ooh, I love ‘em both. And as excellent as they are separately, they’re even better together!

Alyn, I have a sweet tooth too. What’s your favorite dessert?

Ann, I’m quite sure they’re single-serving. Yes. :)

Linda, ha! Somehow that “stayed up too late reading” kind of tired feels better than other kinds of tired.

Vanessa Kelly said in October 10th, 2012 at 10:03 am

Yes, we see a theme here! Sweets & books – works for me!

Vanessa Kelly said in October 10th, 2012 at 4:42 pm

Speaking of baked goods, DH and I were out running errands today, and we stopped at the diner for lunch. Did I have a healthy salad? No. Did I have a nice soup and sandwich? No. I had blueberry pancakes!! I can’t resist the baked goods, much to my dismay.

Loved the interview.
When I buy Lindt Chocolates I just eat the whole bag. I totally loves their chocolate.

Vanessa Kelly said in October 10th, 2012 at 6:37 pm

Kuuipocat, that is an awesome life philosophy! And Elisabeth, I’m with you on the Lindt Chocolate. My favorite is the dark chocolate with sea salt. So good!

tr-avatar.jpg
Theresa Romain said in October 10th, 2012 at 7:25 pm

Vanessa, I think you made the right breakfast choice. :)

Kuuipocat, I love it!

Elisabeth, that’s some gooood stuff. Vanessa, you recommend the kind with sea salt? I just tried a sea-salt caramel yesterday for the first time and became a big fan.

Teresa S said in October 10th, 2012 at 9:15 pm

I am so easily tempted but my biggest temptation is a cup of hot cocoa and a good book on a chilly night!

Vanessa Kelly said in October 10th, 2012 at 9:37 pm

Theresa, the dark chocolate with sea salt is magnifico!

Sherri W. said in October 10th, 2012 at 10:27 pm

My favorite overindulgence is when I play hookie from work and lie about in my pajamas, reading a book and shutting out the world. It feels decadent!

tr-avatar.jpg
WinnieP said in October 10th, 2012 at 10:53 pm

All of the above sound absolutely yummy, esp the dark chocolate sprinkled with sea salt. My weakness is pizza.
Interesting about the Twelfth Night cake – I would think the slice of cake with a baked in bean, would just be eaten unnoticed.

tr-avatar.jpg
Theresa Romain said in October 11th, 2012 at 9:12 am

Teresa, that’s a wonderful combination. You’ve got me wishing for a cool evening already, even though it’s morning!

Sherri, that sounds like my kind of day off. :)

WinnieP, my guess is the cake-eaters would poke through their slices to see if they got the bean (assuming, as Vanessa mentioned, that they weren’t too tipsy!). Sort of like people do with Mardi Gras king cake, if you’ve ever had that?

Theresa Romain said in October 11th, 2012 at 4:02 pm

Ok, folks, it’s 5 ET, so I’m going to pick a winner. Be back in a moment…
