The Perfect Kiss

The Perfect kiss for me has to be the first kiss. The very first time your lips meet. Its a testing time, a tasting time. If the taste is wrong, the kiss too wet, too sloppy, too eager then the romance dies. But if the kiss is perfect - it doesn't have to be slow and sensual, it can be desperate and hungry, but it has to be perfect, then the romance is allowed to blossom and grow.

Tell me your dream for a chance to win a copy of Flight of Her Life - leave a comment below. For all the books go to :   Flight of Her Life Blurb Traveling from New York City to Houston to meet her future in-laws and announce he

Guest Post - Allyson Lindt - Learning New Tricks

Allyson  Welcome back to my blogspot and congratulations on your new release, pull up a chair and tell us about it. Thanks so much for having me today, Diane. If your readers are willing to stick with me until the end of the post, there are details about a couple of awesome giveaways I’m holding (including one here) to celebrate my new book launch, and links to more posts like this one. I pondered for while what to write my post about, and it hit me. The holidays are about friends, family, and food. Fortunately for me, Archer, the hero in my new release, Learning New Tricks , is a fantastic cook. I mean, dude makes pancakes from scratch… just because. Keep in mind though, he’s been a bachelor and living on his own for a while. So when I asked him about his favorite dishes to make, some of his answers were a little… unusual. I’ve tried them all, though, and they’re all tasty. For instance, this one: Stuffed French Toast This makes 2 servings, and Archer likes
