Several Valentine Day’s ago, I was in the midst of writing a book. In order to get the right pace, patter, and passion I had Word read several iterations of the same paragraph. Every once in a while, my resident hero would walk by my office and recite what he heard and comment. He made me laugh.

As we got close to dinner time and my pots were all cold (creative credit to Santana), we went out to dinner at our favorite hamburger joint.

When I put the menu down there was a card in front of me. My hero is thoughtful, witty, supportive, and so much more, but Valentine’s Day is just not his thing. The card really made me smile and I hadn’t opened it. When I did, I was full out laughing.

What do you think?

Love of the Sweetest Kind

“Here?” she whispered to him sweetly.

“We’re alone,” he said discreetly.

“I’ve been good till now!” she sighed.

“But you’re human!” he replied.

“It’s so big!” she hesitated.

“It’s all yours,” he proudly stated.

“Oh, I shouldn’t!” she protested.

“If you love me -!” he suggested.

And so, losing all resistance,

she gave in to his insistence …

and ate every single chocolate in the box!

Happy Belated Valentine’s Day

with a special thank you to my hero and Hallmark Cards.

Heart of the Matter

Digging into the past can be murder!

Addison Moore, a well-known psychiatrist is having difficulty coming to terms with the death of her grandmother Cookie. The woman was everything to her after her parents died in the plane crash over Lockerbie, Scotland. Little did Addy know that an old picture, tucked away in the family bible of Cookie with a handsome stranger would lead her to a discovery for which she is little prepared.

Ethan Taylor is an art historian. He’s lived with his Great Uncle Ben for a long time and would do anything for him. He never anticipated that Ben’s dying wish would introduce him to Ben’s biggest sacrifice.

Neither Addy nor Ethan are prepared for the lengths at which their families went through to keep Cookie and Ben apart. As they try to put the pieces together they uncover a decade’s old unsolved murder implicating Cookie and Ben. Will Addy and Ethan’s blossoming love be able to stand the strain of finding the truth? Will they be able to overcome their own matters of the heart?
