Character dinner party
You are hosting an intimate dinner party for five of your favorite characters. Who do you invite and what food do you serve?
I am of two minds in how I want to answer this challenge: do I go with the romance genre and break the rules a bit and invite 5 couples or do I go with another genre and just pick 5 characters. I decided to go with the romance genre and bend the challenge perimeters a bit.
First, the invitees: Susannah and Ian (from Nobody's Angel by Karen Robards), Serena and Brigham (from Rebellion by Nora Roberts), Mel and Tom (from With Every Letter by Sarah Sundin), Li Tao and Ling (from The Dragon and the Pearl by Jeannie Lin), and finally, Gregory and Danielle (from Falling for the Enemy by Naomi Rawlings).
Second, the food: Honestly hosting this many people in my small British kitchen is the least appealing thing I can think of, so I would just book a table at a nearby restaurant or order take-away. I would serve whatever is ordered in an orderly take a plate and help yourself buffet style while the hubby plays bartender and I make lots of tea. Just very casual and mingling with each other. I would bake a Victorian sponge cake and put out some small chocolates for after dinner.
