When I saw that I was scheduled for a post I thought to myself what am I going to write about. I racked my brain for days which led into a few weeks and it finally hit me–Romance. Don’t laugh.:)
I think it’s safe to say if you are reading this blog you enjoy romance. The Urban dictionary says “True romance is doing something special or unexpected for someone you love, even though you don’t have to.”
I love that! In a nutshell romance is the little things we do for the one we love.
A while back I asked my Facebook friends this question. “If you were to make a must have list of attributes your potential husband must have what would they be?”
The response was overwhelming. Here is a sampling of the answers. Christian, friend, good provider, respect for me, loves me, honest, dedication, good work ethic, loves his family, has a heart after God, able to say “I’m Sorry”, and his heart is after mine… meaning, his concern is for her well-being first. Kind, funny, loyal (devoted to God, family, and job).
The list goes on and on, but there were a few common themes—Honesty, a hard worker, and he must be devoted to her and their family.
I thought it’d be fun to try doing an acronym with the word love. What words would you use?
I admit, I had to go to my thesaurus to come up with V and E, but I really like those words. Especially voluntary. Love is a choice and so is romance for that matter. One of my favorite love passages in the Bible is 1 Corinthians 13:4-8. I hope you’ll look it up in your favorite version. I hope to reflect these qualities in my own life and in the characters lives that I create.
Speaking of characters, I have a new book releasing next month. It’s called A Romance Rekindled. In honor of it’s impending release, I’m giving away one copy of my debut novel The Christmas Promise. I’m VERY technology challenged so your names will be assigned a number and I will draw a number from a hat. This drawing is open to USA mailing addresses only. Void where prohibited by law. The winner will be announced on Sunday.
DR. PETE HARDING DOESN’T DATE SINGLE MOMS
No matter how lovely Keira Noble’s smile, or how adorable her four-year-old son. He’s been down that road before and knows it can lead to a broken heart. But that doesn’t mean he can’t help the pretty widow find a puppy to put under the Christmas tree for her son….
Pete claims he only wants to help her find the perfect gift for Cody. Yet Keira can’t deny the tender feelings in his eyes whenever he looks at her. Could this handsome Scrooge have a change of heart, and create a new family for Christmas?
