Do You Believe in Love?


Do you believe in love? What about luck, do you all believe in that? I believe in both and it’s not because I write romance or read romance or even because I believe I have a great home life. I’d lie if I said that I’ve never been down or brokenhearted or hurt. My belief is that love is the ultimate ying and yang, the ultimate high or low. Because the truth is that when you are in love and things are going great, nothing in the world is better and when your heart is broken or love hurts, nothing could possibly feel worse. And yet it all requires some sort of balance.

I’m going to share a love story with a little bit of luck and a lot of love. I actually met my husband years before we starting going out. In short, he asked a mutual friend of ours to set us up and lucky for me, she said no. My husband was going through a rowdy stage and lets just say that in some way or other, he might not have ended up my husband. A few years later, we met again at a party. My husband had gone through a bit of a transformation both physically and emotionally. Needless to say, it was I who asked the same mutual friend to introduce us. One date became three and the next thing we knew, we were an exclusive “item.” This time around, we were both quite lucky and ended up quite in love, living happily ever after as the fairytales say (only they leave out the fact that this happily ever after is a lot of work!)

Now here is the important part… for one lucky commentor, I will provide a $10.00 gift card of their choice (B&N or Amazon). Please let me know your thoughts on luck and love or tell your own story. Don’t forget to leave your email. This enters you into my blog drawing as well as the Lucky in Love main blog hop drawing.

Sneak Peak Sunday Post

Sneak Peek Sunday BannerHi all,

As part of Sneak Peak Sunday, I am sharing six never seen paragraphs of a current WIP called Kiss Eternal:

Michaela took a deep breath and closed her eyes as air eased through her sore body. Bit by bit, she made her way across the stone floor to where Rafe lay. He didn’t stir as she came up alongside him and rolled him onto his back with her bound hands. Blood, wet and dry, speckled and stained his pallid skin. Gray circles fanned out beneath his eyes.

Lifting her hands Michaela tore what remained of Rafe’s t-shirt down the middle, exposing his chest and stomach. She paused, taking in his chiseled abs and defined pecs. And they called her a witch. The devil himself couldn’t match Rafe’s temptation. She averted her gaze, worked to remove the scraps of his shirt. Filthy. She rose to her feet and walked along the dungeon wall to where water trickled down the stone. The small bit of liquid soaked into the cloth. She squeezed it out then let it absorb more water. It wasn’t much but it would have to do. She needed to clean his wounds to some degree.

“Okay.” She knelt beside him. “Por favor, please, don’t wake up and bite me.” She placed the wet cotton against his chest and held it there several seconds before releasing a long breath. With small strokes she cleaned his wounds, traveling back to her water source every so often to clean her makeshift rag. Even clear of the dirt and grime, his wounds bled.

Michaela sat back on her heels. She had no choice but to stop the bleeding herself. It would mean tasting his blood and there would be no turning back afterward. Unless he was willing to give up his immortality, he absolutely couldn’t drink from her. Leaning forward, she opened her mouth and placed it over the torn skin of his side. She brushed wet kisses along the damaged skin, sucking out blood as she moved along. His body had already rejected the silver bullets. A good sign. Skin mended and stretched, allowing her to focus on other injuries.

He shifted beneath her and she pulled back, but not fast enough as he held the material of her dress in his steely grip. His eyes glowed burgundy, his fangs elongated. One tug and she’d tumble into his arms.

Michaela sank back to the ground from her squatted position. She grew weak from the healing. “Please, don’t drink from me.”

Hope you all enjoyed the treat. If you’d like to catch more six paragraph snippets, please click here.
