Happy Valentine's Day

Posted in:
There are two parts to this post and they both fit into the spirit of Valentine and my February Love.

Thanks to Christina Lee of Write-Brianed, you can read this short excerpt where the two main characters kiss for the first time. This is Kevwe and Efe from A Love Rekindled, my upcoming book. After being college sweethearts, they were separated for seven years, and this is evening of the day they met again.
Kevwe gripped her wrist and stared into her eyes, covering her hand with his and intertwining their fingers right on her thighs. Efe trembled. She would have jumped to her feet if the feel of his fingers kneading hers on her laps was not so distracting. Her heart raced, muddling her thoughts.

“Let me show you how much I’ve missed you,” he murmured, desire in his gaze.

His fingers stroked over her slender knuckles and along the length of her thigh. A rush of pleasure suffused her brain as he leaned towards her. His manly scent flooded her senses and her head swam. God, she wanted to melt into him. Her heart jumped as she remembered how it used to be between them.

They had been young, so much in love. When they split she missed him so much, and she had been filled with regrets. Maybe going all the way with him would release her from the prison of the past. Her body certainly wanted it.

She whispered his name like a plea and shifted forward. He fit between her thighs like they were made for him. The loneliness that lay like a piece of hard ice in her heart thawed in that moment. Their lips met and clung together. It started gently, but in an instant the kiss became hot, and then turned hungry and desperate. The hurts of the past disappeared; the only thing that mattered in that moment was the heat of arousal.

Thanks to Stephanie Haefner of Writer's cocoon, I'll be answering the following questions for you;

1- What is the most romantic thing anyone has ever done for you? Suggesting that we get married on valentine day. It was just fortuitous, but romantic that I am, it didn't even occur to me till my then fiance, now husband, asked me. My heart leaped and....hmmm...let's just say, I'll never forget that day, and the day we finally got married.

2- What is your favorite love song? There are so many of them, and though I can't list them all, I have two that I can't choose one over the other. My Heart will go on by Celine Dion and I'll always love you by Whitney Houston.

3- Do you have a favorite romantic movie or book? Titanic is my favorite romantic movie (obvious, right?), and Redeeming love by Francine Rivers is my bestest romantic fiction.

4- Do you have any romantic plans for Valentine's Day this year? Believe me I do, hehehe...

5- What's your favorite romantic treat? (candy, chocolate, edible body paint, etc...) Just being with my heart, my lover, and if there's caramel ice cream involved, then....

  28. Lmao @ no 4. My eyes!! my eyes oh!!! my mind.

    happy vals day

  29. I like their hands entwined and his fingers stroking her knuckles. Too often we forget just how sensual the hands can be -- ahem, on each other, I mean. :D

  30. @Rita, it is not my fault o.. lol

  31. Thank you all so much! We had a wonderful day and I hope everyone did too.

    @LDP, you can't be serious!

    Watch put for more real love stories coming soon.

  32. Ohhh what a lovely photo! Happy Anniversary to you and yours! God bless

  33. *whispered his name like a plea* I LOVED that line. So full of angst and passion. Great scene.
    Edge of Your Seat Romance

  34. Hot and hungry - yow that was a great scene!

  35. Great excerpts.

    I find it interesting the distinguished way, male authors describe a romantic/sexual scene and how different it is from a female author's perspective. Females are often softer, more about feelings and emotions, males are often about the description of the players body parts and what they do with it.

    The only work by a male author that I have read about, who wrote from a very female perspective, convincingly, I must add, is Paolo Coelho's 'Eleven minutes'

    Re-getting married on valentines day. Babe you get liver sha oooo. I will just stop there. LOL

    Happy Vals day to those who believe in it.

    Latest offering:

  36. Happy anniversary Myne, many more happy years together, many children, many books, multitude of God's blessings IJN :)

  37. Happy vals day

    Most romantic thing:
    My ex was like the chef who did it all and we were in a restaurant so you can imagine how conspicuous we were.

    Well had a great day! I spoiled it by constantly wondering what he would be expecting after a luscious dinner.

  38. Happy Anniversary. I hope you had a love-filled and a fun-filled day.

  39. Aww..Your marriage sounds blissful! and edible body paint?? u go girl! lol

    I really want to read redeeming love! been meaning to get it for ages...her mark of the lion serious was amazing..loved it so i'm sure i'll love this one too

  40. Happy belated Val's day Myne and Happy anniversary. That's real nice.

    Uh oh at number 4 and 5! Haha. Loves it...

  41. Celine Dion and Whitney - such classics!
