Heroes, Heroines, and Valentine’s Day….Not


Are you doing anything special for the big day? I certainly am. I’ll be sending my last magazine on the day job to the printer, which means a long, hectic workday filled with semi-hysterical alumni (well, okay, that started late yesterday), needless interruptions, and the utter satisfaction of gettin’ that baby outta here.

I might have six weeks left on the day job, but after today, I’ll mentally begin the transition to full-time author. Well, except for that week I plan to do nothing but sleep.

I was trying to think about my various heroes and heroines, and how they had spent Valentine’s Day in my books and, well, they haven’t. It’s probably just as well. Alex would buy DJ a gun, DJ would get him a bacon-fryer, Rand would do something inappropriate, and, well, let’s not even talk about Rene or Jean Lafitte.

Glory would eat something full of bourbon and sugar and then Mirren would have a fine feast. She’d enjoy it too.

Will and Randa would argue over who got whose gift first.

Robin would pick a fight with Cage and they’d end up having hot monkey sex.

Cole and Cele would probably go out for a beer because Gentry and Jena would be staking out poachers or something.

Poor Aidan and Krys. I can’t even talk about them.

I don’t think I’ve even READ a Valentine’s Day book. Have you? And what do you have planned for your big smoochy day?

  1. My husband is making a big pot of homemade vegetable beef soup. I can’t wait to get home tonight, the house will smell wonderful and I’ll have a great meal. It is cold and rainy here in Tulsa today, so soup is a good thing. Yummy. Too bad I can’t share some with you 🙂

  2. My boyfriend and I are running errands today. We’ll go out fora nice lunch tomorrow since I don’t like going out on Valentine’s Day.

  3. Woke up to a box of heart shaped dark chocolates and a sweet card. There will be pizza and cherry cheesecake for supper. Do you see a theme here?

  4. i planned to buy myself some icecream but couldn’t find any that tempted me…so just some tv or more sleep on program
