The Lion’s Den on How to Celebrate Love

Celebrate Love!

MMMMmmmmm…….Valentine’s Day.  That special day set aside to celebrate love.  Whether you invite your valentine out for an evening of wining and dining, with soft music and candlelight, or if you decide to go bowling, or have a quiet evening in with a pizza and a good movie, it’s not what you do, but who you do it with that makes it special.  Now if you’re a real romantic, you might want to mark the occasion with some flowers and maybe a little trinket, something that whenever she wears it will always remind her of you.    

While Brad and Della, the  two main characters in The Lion’s Den, my first action/adventure/romance novel due for publication in April 2015, were taking a time out from some trouble that was following them from Della’s involvement in covering the story of the hunt for Osama bin Laden, they spent some time staying at the beautiful Algonquian Hotel near St. Andrews by the Sea in New Brunswick, Canada.  Its old world opulence and charm make it the perfect setting for a romantic get away.  If you’re looking for a way to melt your lady’s heart, take a page out of Brad’s book and treat your special someone like the queen of your heart on Valentine’s Day.  

The Lion’s Den

When Brad let himself back into their suite, Della was sitting at a vanity table, putting the finishing touches on her makeup.  Her hair was shiny from her shampoo and it cascaded down over her shoulders in glossy abandon.  The cocktail dress he had bought for her that afternoon fit like a dream, and  the natural shape of her firm breasts  under the flimsy chiffon, was enough to make his mouth water.  She had just rubbed some of her rose scented lotion into her arms and legs, and her skin glowed like polished silk.

Brad stepped to the hall table and took a long velvet box out of their pile of shopping bags.  He walked over to her and sat beside her on the vanity bench seat, slipping his arms around her and watching their reflection in the glass.  He closed his eyes as he drew in the soft scent of the new perfume on her skin, and he knew that he would no longer be able to smell a rose without thinking of her.

“You are so beautiful,” he whispered in her ear, as her lashes lowered over the passion starting to build in her smoky eyes,” You are the sexiest woman alive.  I want to devour you, but I don’t want to mess you up, since you’re all dressed up for dinner,” he gently nipped her earlobe and she shivered as his magic mouth traced a path along her jawline, and slanted across her lips. He took the cover off the velvet box and drew out a slender gold chain from which hung a perfect crystal rose.  He fastened the clasp around her neck and the pendant rested, sparkling like fire between her breasts.

“Oh Brad, it’s beautiful,” Della breathed, watching the crystal sparkle against her skin.  She saw the emotion in his eyes and  laid her lips on his, soft as a butterfly’s touch and whispered,

“Thank-you, I Iove it.”  He couldn’t wait until she would be ready to say those three little words to him.

Whatever you decide to do for your loved one on Valentine’s Day, remember it’s the sweet gestures and unexpected surprises that show her that you care.  Above all, give her the gift of your time and complete attention.

love, norma
