Book Bite 10 ~ When I Fall In Love

I decided to follow the theme of my last post which was about a friend’s romantic book collection and share with you a scene from my WIP novel which includes the song, “When I Fall In Love” by Johnny Mathis. My protagonist’s husband can be quite the romantic. Enjoy the song while you read the scene…

“When I Fall In Love” by Johnny Mathis

“Sweetheart, I’m sorry I got on your case and flew off the handle. I’m just concerned. You’re absolutely right, I don’t know what you saw. Just because I didn’t see it doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist.” Tom eluded to one of Maddie’s favourite quotes from her college years. “I’ll pour the wine; you slip into something very comfortable and I’ll meet you in front of the TV. Do you have a preference what to watch?”

“No, you choose tonight, dear.” And with that, Maddie sighed with relief and headed for the bedroom.

She was about to unzip her dress when Tom appeared in the doorway holding two half-filled glasses and a large bottle of Frisky Beaver wine.

“Let me get that for you,” he grinned with that schoolboy look in his eye he always got when he had more than wine and a movie on his mind.

Tom placed the wine and the glasses on the table beside the bed and started the music playing, “When I Fall In Love” by Johnny Mathis.

“Do you remember our wedding night, Mrs. Hardwick?”

“I think I could be persuaded, Mr. Hardwick.” Slowly, he began unzipping her dress

Sorry, I had to stop there or I’d need to rate my blog PG!

This is my last Book Bite for my novel. I’m hoping to get it edited soon with a release date mid-summer. I’ll be adding this song to the playlist. I’m blessed to be able to work from home at something that’s more pleasure than work and I’m my own publisher through Amazon.

Til next time — stay safe and be well in these trying times and remember –You are loved by the One who created you in His image.

Book Bites 6 — A Warm Hug

From My Book In Revision

The novel I’m revising has a female protagonist and I’m writing from her point of view. ‘A Warm Hug’ is just what she needs right now.

“She managed a faint smile and sat down on the couch, curling up beside him as he pulled the blanket around them both and held her tight. They hardly spoke a word during the show. She sensed Tom wanted to give her time to settle down after the ordeal and just be peaceful. He usually knew what she needed after all the years they’d been together and he was right. She just needed to sip chamomile tea under a blanket and feel his arms around her and see him smile.”

How do you show support for a loved one or a friend who’s facing negativity from others? Do you do as Sheldon from ‘The Big Bang’ does and offer a ‘refreshing beverage’?

Do you always add some romance into your stories? Have you written love from a different perspective, such as a parent and child, an owner and a pet, or the love of God for us?

If you’d like to browse a few romance novels, I have an online bookstore of Christian novels and other published work by various authors over at my Christian Authors website. I’m an Amazon affiliate and all the books are shipped from there.

If you’d like to follow along as I revise but you missed the previous posts, you can start back at the beginning here Book Bites 1.

Til next time, know you are loved by the One who created you in His image.
