Sweet Treats Werewolves Love - Ellies's Cheesecake Recipe.

 To celebrate the release of my latest book, TO MATE A WEREWOLF, Ellie, the heroine, has given me a collection of her recipes to post on my friends' blogs over the next few days.
We all know Lykae like their meat rare, or better still on the hoof, but Ellie’s never met one who didn’t have a sweet tooth.   


Joel stroked her unscarred cheek. “I hear you gave your replacement a cheesecake facial.”

Ellie nodded. “He told my orderlies to throw me out of my kitchen. That was when he thought I was just an Elf. For two years, I’ve heard nothing about Elves except that they’re sadistic and cruel. Their atrocities and the way they treat their women sicken me, but I can’t help that my father was one.”

Joel growled and not in that sexy way he had earlier, seemingly unsure what to say or how to reassure her. The Lykae kept an uneasy peace with the Elves, but they’d all witnessed their handiwork—massacres, rape, and torture—too many times.

She swallowed hard and nodded. “Anyway, when the cook saw my scars, he said looking at me made him feel sick. He actually demanded I leave before I curdled his cheesecakes.”

Claws and fangs extended, Joel sat up abruptly. “Shall I bring you his head?”

Orange crème caramel cheesecakes

·         284ml pot double cream
·         peel from 1 orange
·         225g caster sugar
·         4 tbsp orange liqueur
·         200g tub cream cheese
·         4 eggs
For the biscuit base
·         250g digestive biscuits
·         85g butter, melted
For the caramel squiggles
·         100g caster sugar
·         sunflower oil
Heat oven to 150C/fan 130C/gas 2. In a small pan, bring the cream to the boil with the orange peel, then set aside to infuse. Tip 140g/5oz sugar into another saucepan with just enough water to make it sludgy. Bring to the boil, then turn the heat down to a simmer and boil to make a darkish caramel. Add 2 tbsp of the orange liqueur (watch out as it will splutter). Leave it to settle slightly, then pour the caramel over the base of 6 x 250ml ramekins and set aside.

Beat the 
cream cheese and the remaining 85g/3oz sugar together in a large bowl, then beat in the eggs and the remaining orange liqueur. Strain in the infused cream, then beat everything together to make a custard. Skim off any froth and set aside.

Boil the kettle. Place the ramekins in a deep roasting tin. Divide the custard between them – it will only come to halfway – then bring the tin to the oven and fill with hot water from the kettle so it comes halfway up the outside of the ramekin dishes. Bake the cheesecakes for 40 mins or until just set, then remove from the oven and the tin. Leave to cool, then chill at least overnight. These can be made up to 2 days ahead and left to chill.

Up to 2 days before serving, make the bases. Crumble the biscuits into a food processor, then blitz to fine crumbs. Add the melted butter and pulse until everything is mixed. Line a flat baking tray with greaseproof paper, tip the base mix onto it, then top with another sheet of greaseproof paper. Gently roll the mix out until large enough to cut 6 bases the same size as the ramekins out of it. Chill.

To make the caramel squiggles, heat the sugar with a little water in a saucepan and boil to make caramel, then set aside to cool slightly. Line a tray with baking parchment and grease with a little oil. Drizzle the caramel up and down so that all the strands of caramel stick together to create stars, then leave to set.

To serve, use a cutter the same diameter as the ramekin to cut out 6 bases from the biscuit mix. Lift the bases onto 6 plates. Unmould the cheesecakes, saving the caramel sauce in the ramekin. Top the bases with the 
crème caramels, drizzle the sauce over and around the plates, garnish with a star and serve.


The scars on Ellie Padget’s cheek are a constant reminder of the times she tried to escape from sexual slavery. Two years ago, Joel—alpha in waiting of the Tundra-Tough pack—led the rescue party that freed her. She’s loved him ever since.

Their relationship finally explodes into steaming sex, but he offers to pay her off. She walks away with her head high and her heart shattered. When she learns of a plot to destroy Joel and his pack, her only option is return to his side and warn him.

Joel has to fight to retain the pack that should be his by right, and no one can leave until the pack has a new alpha. He’s horrified when Ellie turns up on the night he’s to meet the woman he’s agreed to marry but never met. She’s stuck there until he claims his birthright. Finally, he realizes Ellie’s his true mate. Now he has to choose between his arranged marriage, and the one woman he truly loves. Will he choose with his head or his heart?

To Mate a Werewolf is a stand alone story within the Scattered Siblings series.
