Love and romance are what I write, what I enjoy reading about. Valentine’s Day is, supposedly, the one special day of the year that emphasizes love and romance.
Here are some interesting links to do with Valentine’s Day:
The 10 Best Love Movies – such as The Notebook and Casablanca
Top 10 Proposal Lines – such as “I can’t imagine a life without you in it.”
Top Ten Love Rituals that Work – such as adding a pinch of ginger to your romantic meals
Valentines Day Statistics – such as 196 million roses are produced for Valentine’s Day
Valentine’s Day facts, superstitions – such as in Medieval times, girls consumed unusual foods on Valentine’s Day in the belief it would make them dream of their future husbands
In case you’re interested in reading one of my books that tie in with Valentine’s Day, here are several to choose from all from Blushing Books:
Valentine is a romance therapist burned out on the whole idea of romance. She needs a break from dating GQ fashioned stockbrokers and men whose lives revolve around their over-priced cars, high-tech apartments, and their belief that they’re super studs in bed. She needs time away from a therapy partnership that no longer makes her happy. Right now, nothing makes her happy. She needs a Calgon-take-me-away escape from all of it, and remembers how a recent client invited Valentine to her wedding in Maui. What better place for an escape? No pushy men to deal with. No pressures from her partners. Just time alone in paradise!
Sometimes paradise has its problems, too. Especially when her client’s cowboy rat older brother shows up, and Valentine wants to throttle him for his past overbearing ways toward his sister! Sam isn’t too thrilled to see the dipstick counselor who mucked up his adoring baby sister either. The interfering woman keeps right on butting her nose into his business, making him strongly feel the need to apply his hand to her sweet little bottom! Only touching her makes them both want so much more!
His by Valentine’s Day
Shawna inherited the job of ranch foreman and has worked hard to prove herself to the men. The Rolling Hills Ranch is the only real home she has ever known. Life is good… until a spotless GQ businessman shows up at Thanksgiving to announce that he has purchased the ranch. The cold–hearted bas–– plans to upset everything by selling it to one of the big ranching corporations asap. And he won’t listen to a word she says.
Cade bought the ranch with no intention of even seeing it before he sold it again, but a friend talked him into going there first. From the second he introduced himself to the pint–sized, contrary blond, his life was turned upside down. He’d never met a woman with half her boldness or a quarter of her sass. Or a woman more in need of a bottom warming.
The awful man had actually spanked her during their first meeting, and then called her a Drama Queen for complaining. All she wants now is to find a miraculous way for her and her rodeo buddies/ranch hands to buy the ranch and be forever rid of the too darn handsome Cade Calloway.
Cade left the ranch feeling more challenged than he had in a long time. As hard as he tries, he can’t get Shawna out of his thoughts. He wants her, any way that he can have her. A goal setter, he decides to make her his by Valentine’s Day.
With her best friend at her side, Kodie has used the New Year to swear off jerks, and particularly her last stinging relationship that ended in humiliation and heartbreak. New Year’s Eve in Las Vegas was garanteed to be a pure fun what-happens-in-Vegas-Stays-In-Vegas weekend…
There is a hiccup in her plans because the gorgeous brother of her best friend, Ty, is also looking for that kind of weekend since he’s celebrating his ranch’s success. This cowboy is drop-dead gorgeous, and he can’t take his eyes off of her… Which leads to something neither of them planned–one of those Las Vegas Weddings.
The next day, Kodie flees without saying anything, leaving Ty to search for her until he finds her a month later at her sculpture gallery that’s featuring bronze statues of… well, him. There’s no denying that she likes what she sees, and the idea of a Las Vegas divorce becomes less and less of an option–he’s decided he wants to keep her for his wife, come hell or high water, even if he has to tan her backside for her just to get her to stay put and listen.
Kodie’s broken heart from her last relationship has left her scars that won’t heal and worries she can’t ignore. She has to make a choice–should she keep this gorgeous cowboy, or should she be strong enough to let him go for his own good?
