This painting, okay a reprint of it, hangs in my living room. I have most of the series hanging throughout my home. I connect with the time period that these works of art represent. The thought of a knight on a white horse taking me away from it all is appealing. It’s the main reason I married my wonderful husband. (He took me away on a modern Harley though!)
Sweet romance has faded in a lot of places. Readers and writers alike should not take this lightly. We all need a little sweet romance in our lives. I write erotic romance but recently I’ve found that sweet thoughts and characters are knocking on my muse’s door. I wrote a short story for the One Touch, One Glance, A Sweet Romance Anthology, titled Sweet Tea Maggie. My second story, Celtic Destiny, is a novella that takes place in Scotland. Who wouldn’t love to go there? Another first for me- I wrote ghost characters into this story.
I’m throwing down the gauntlet and challenging everyone to read and/or write a vintage romance this week. Be it mine, which will be released April 20, 2009, at www.lyricalpress.com or someone else’s. And after you read said story- tell someone you love them!
