It's the little things that spark a romance. @LeoRosanna #amwriting

February is the month of love and romance, or so the card shops would have us believe.

My husband and I agreed to purchase Valentine's Day cards for each other but we drew the line there. This is an expensive year for us with lots of renovations in the home and neither of us wanted or needed a fussy gift for V Day.

Besides, I've always believed it's the little gestures that keep romance alive, especially in a long term relationship.

For instance, I don't think I ever feel quite as romantic as when hubby fills my car tank with gas and fixes my wonky windshield wipers. In fact, I've told him he's never as sexy as in those moments. What can I say? I hate pumping gas.

He's surprised me on many occasions with flowers and little gifts but tends to do it when I'm not expecting it. I love that. And quite frankly, who doesn't want flowers for
Flag Day?

Of course, chocolates go a long way especially when the sugary gift is unexpected. Cheap and cheerful chocolate makes me chirpy...and yes, I am trying to kill you with alliteration.

Does that mean one should ignore Valentine's Day and similar holidays? No. Those moments are nice too. However, it's the small, surprise gestures that keep me coming back every time.

Like your romance in convenient book-sized packages? I've got you covered!

My contemporary romance Vice is now 1/2 off at Samhain Publishing's site. ** Please note: due to the publisher closing, this book will only be available until the end of February. Don't wait to add it to your to-be-read list!

He’s much more than a bad habit.
As a Vegas singer and volunteer counselor, Kate Callender has experienced life on both sides of Sin City’s bright lights. The thrill of performing, and gambling’s devastating effect on the addicts’ families.
Liam Doyle is just the kind of man she despises—a handsome, enigmatic businessman with a knack for seducing customers into his casino hotels. Determined to put a lid on his growing influence, she prepares to picket the opening of his newest casino, Vice.
When Liam spots the lone protestor hassling his customers, annoyance wars with instant attraction. And he quickly discovers the leggy redhead not only can’t be bought, she tempts him the way the sound of a roulette wheel lures a gambler.
They are natural enemies, but when a vile attack sparks Liam’s protective instincts, they begin a sexual odyssey that dances on the edge of addiction. Dangerously close to losing control...and losing themselves.
