Blog Tour: WHITE HELLEBORE by Nicole Zoltack

Cooking with Julianna's Mom

Hi, everyone, I'm so glad to be here! I'm Nicole Zoltack, author of  HELLEBORE, the second book in a NA superhero romance trilogy.

Julianna is one part of the love triangle in White Hellebore. She's too busy being the sheriff of Falledge and trying to keep her town safe to make elaborate meals for herself. She usually eats pizza on the run. Her mom, on the other hand, loves to cook amazing meals and decadent desserts. Here's Julianna's mom's raspberry pie recipe.


2 9-inch pie crusts (Julianna's mom would of course make homemade but she doesn't share her crust recipe. Kinda stingy about that)
4 cups raspberries
1 cup sugar
2 ½ tablespoons tapioca
1 tablespoon lemon juice
¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon salt
4 teaspoons butter
1 tablespoon half and half cream


Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Mix together the raspberries, sugar, tapioca, lemon juice, cinnamon, and salt. Place one of the pie crusts in the pie dish and add the raspberry mixtures. Dot with butter. Add the top crust and crimp edge. Make slits into the top crust and brush with the cream. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes to set the crust. Reduce heat to 375 and bake until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbly. Usually 25 minutes. Cool the pie completely before serving. Enjoy!


After destroying Skull Krusher, Nicholas Adams thinks Falledge is safe and becomes a security guard at the museum, watching a valuable statue. Unfortunately, the Egyptian statue houses the soul of a scorned witch, biding her time to have her revenge on the descendants of her cheating lover.

Kiya the witch isn't the only new foe in town as the drug that created Skull Krusher has now transformed a scientist into yet another monster, forcing Nicholas to don his Black Hellebore mask again and save Falledge.

Nicholas has no help this time as Kiya gains possession of his love Julianna's body and brings the soul of Justina, Nicholas's high school sweetheart and Julianna's twin, with her. Despite himself, Nicholas is torn between the sisters. If he can't stop the fiends from taking over the world and destroying humankind, he'd never be able to find lasting, true love.
