Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and most guys are probably rolling their eyes, moaning and saying, “I just got through Christmas” or “Man, I screwed up with my last gift. I really need to give her something special. It’s too damn cold to sleep in the doghouse.”

Relax guys. I’ll tell you what woman want. Romance.

Now is a the secret to romance. Romance is not something you can buy in a store. It doesn’t have to cost a cent. The expensive flowers are great and so are the chocolates and jewelry. They’re appreciated, but they’re not romance. And if you present them in a less than a romantic way, you’ll be dog meat.

Romance is when you the love of your life how much you care for her--like placing your hand on the small of her back as you walk side by side. Brushing her hair back from her face. When leaving for work, rush back in the door for another kiss. Make her a cup of tea or rub her shoulders.

I think the most romantic thing my DH has ever done for me is to send me a postcard at my work, telling me he loves me. It wasn't my birthday, nor Valentine’s Day, nor an anniversary. Really it doesn’t take much to make our hearts swell.

A Valentine's Day Gift idea


Blockbuster Movies show it, Platinum Records praise it, great literature lauds it...every living soul searches for it. Good grief, Carrie Twines' livelihood depends on it. Everyone in Black Moose, Vermont seems to be in love or in hot pursuit of it. Their bliss only reminds Carrie of what she lost as a teen when two geeky best friends became first loves--until heartache sent them on different paths.

Carrie returns to Black Moose to emerge from the shadows of her parents' stardom and find a normal life, love and family, but the odds are stacked against her. However, her luck is about to change. As she contemplates the merits of spinsterhood, a game of chance brings her back to the man she'd walked away from years ago. He's even more kind and sexy than he was fourteen years ago, but can she trust him with her heart again?

Luke McQuire is a man with two things on his mind: building his electrical business and evading the town diva, Olive Ann. But when Carrie shows up again like a lucky penny, he's got more to think about--including why she left him in the first place. He's a damn good electrician, but can he make sparks fly with the one woman he wants--the one woman who was able to resist him?
