Romance Historical

"I wish you'd develop a splash of patience!"

Ignoring her, Grey brushed past, instantly recognizing he'd interrupted something. His confirmation was her ruddy face and puffy lips. It was a blessed good thing he'd come along when he had. "Patience? I've been freezing my ass off outside, waiting for your highness like some lap dog. When you say five o'clock, I damn well expect you to be downstairs waiting for me at five o'clock. I sure don't have to ask what you've been up to. And where is this man who tempts you so much, you're willing to debase yourself at his mere beckoning?"

Carolena looked to the velvet pillows now crushed on the floor. Wadded in the corner was the blue dress. There was little sense denying it. Then again, who was he to tell her what was proper? He'd bedded hundreds of women, she was sure, so he had no room to talk.

Remaining calm, lest her feeling of guilt show, she told him, "Signor Alontti is attending to business. He sends his regards."

"Yeah? I'll just bet he does. Come on. Let's get the hell out of this lair before I find your lover and lay him out!"

Re: Amelia Island's Velvet Undertow

Cute column. Please enter me into today's contest.

I've learned that women use 6000 words a day while men use 2000. So no wonder they have difficulty understanding us. Also men want to solve problems and offer solutions while women just want to be heard. By hearing ourselves think outloud, we may come to a decision. Ladies have to train their men as to what is their idea of romance. It still makes me laugh to know my sister-in-law received a fire extinguisher for a birthday gift. Bookmarking a passage in a book or leaving it open sounds like a good plan without being pushy.

That sounds like a good idea if you have a hubby that would look at the book mine would just think it was one of mine and not give it another look

I made my boyfriend look for "Sex and the Single Earl" for me; he even had to ask for help. He considered this as cruel and unusual punishment so I doubt he'll ever willingly read a romance novel; he wouldn't even let me read passages to him.

This was a fun read here today.

Since my Husband is an avid reader, he just might give this book a shot!! Knowing what this book is about is an added plus!! Thank you for writing a book that both sexes can not only enjoy reading, but can enjoy!!

While I loved the column, making
hubby purchase a romance novel
would be paramount to making him
pick up "feminine products" at
the pharmacy.
