Last chance to buy! The end of an era… ;)

As of yesterday it’s exactly a year since ♥THE MAN IN A HAYSTACK♥ was published. Thank you all for your support since then – it’s been much appreciated and you’ve helped me achieve Amazon best seller status. There’s not a lot else to accomplish and I feel it’s time to change direction. Therefore, as of 1 December I’m taking the book out of publication so that I can completely detach myself and concentrate on other things. I’ll continue to blog from time to time as I’ve always enjoyed that so please continue to visit, however if you want to buy ♥THE MAN IN A HAYSTACK♥ there’s only a couple of weeks left to do so. Perfect for the ladies in your lives, and especially at Christmas. It’s a fab stocking filler. ♥

What is love?

What-Is-Love-Wallpaper-Final_550“What I’m looking for in a man is someone who fits like a glove. I want to feel so comfortable in his presence that I don’t have to put on an act for fear of him not liking who I am. I want to feel a rush of excitement and a burning desire to be with him all the time. When I first went out with Russ, I was constantly excited and on top of the world. Even though he wasn’t my usual type, the physical attraction was immense. I couldn’t get enough of him and felt nauseous when I wasn’t with him – I think that’s the definition of being ‘love sick’. Two years later a friend asked me if I still felt tingly when I kissed him and my answer was yes. I felt an animal magnetism towards him. I want to feel that again with someone else. As I have felt it with other men I know it exists. Ivan clearly felt it with me because he just couldn’t stop touching and looking at me. It would have been great if I’d felt the same but there again is it simply lust? How do you know whether you’re in love or lust?”

Therein lies the problem. Do love and lust go hand in hand? Can love survive without lust? For many years I confused the two. I have felt excruciating emotional pain when a relationship predominantly based on sex ended abruptly and prematurely, but I have felt similarly when a relationship with a strong foundation of friendship topped with a regular helping of ‘sexy time’ has drawn to a close.

I really wish we could turn back time and experience courting in the 1930s and 1940s when people took things slowly and apparently fell in love before any ‘funny business’ or ‘how’s your father’ took place. It is those marriages which stood Continue reading

My new book trailer… THE MAN IN A HAYSTACK

I’ve spent all day re-working my book trailer to incorporate the new branding. Even though the previous trailer won an award, the statistics at YouTube indicated that most people weren’t watching it through to the end, so I knew that I had to shorten the new one to make it more effective. I’ve managed to reduce it by 1 minute so hopefully it’s much more watchable. What do you think?

Book review: SHE BELONGS TO ME by Carmen DeSousa

What a great read! I love the two leading characters, Jaynee and Jordan. Apart from the gunshot scene, the first half of the book mainly focuses on their developing relationship. It is very touching and watching Jordan fall deeply in love with Jaynee (whilst chasing and wooing her) is quite beautiful, and very believable She Belongs to Metoo.

The second half of the book picks up pace and becomes very intriguing with the whole ‘whodunnit?’ theme. I found myself trying to guess who it could be. When it became clear I’d suspected the wrong guy all along, I spent an entire afternoon reading because I simply had to know who it was! It’s well written, very romantic, mysterious and captivating.

If you like romance and suspense then SHE BELONGS TO ME is highly recommended!
