Getting Lucky in Love

In order to believe in romance, one always has to believe in a certain amount of luck. What makes two people come together? Sometimes, the meeting is a chance happening. Other times, it’s slightly more planned. I’ve definitely been lucky in love, and fully believe there’s more than one type of love, too.

It’s hard to imagine, but I’m going on 13 years of being married. Wow, that’s a scary number. There were a few times there where I seriously questioned if we’d make it this far, and funny enough part of that was the very first year. You see, as an only child, I was used to being “alone.” Married? That’s a whole lot of shared space. My husband would come home early from work, and I’d get territorial … 13 years later, and he still does it. Now, I’ve grown used to it. Who knew?

My husband said he actually saw pictures of me in magazines before he ever met me. The idea is a little bit creepy. Seriously, was it planned? I used to work for non-fiction magazines, and often would appear in the accompanying photographs. One weekend when he was at the reserves for the military, he picked up a magazine at a convenience store, and saw this “cute” woman. Guess who it ended up being?

Anyway, us coming together seemed destined – shall I say “lucky” – to happen.

So what do you think? Are people lucky in love?

Here's a look at one of my new releases -- an erotic paranormal -- F/F/M

Mirabella’s Mardi Gras Ménage

Constantly under the watchful eye of her Voodoo priestess aunt, Mirabella longs to break free during the events of Mardi Gras. Escapades draw her into the arms of Marguerite, a fiery redhead with a passion for life, and Nick, a familiar vampire who’s haunted by his transformation and past.

What starts as a new experience – a Mardi Gras Ménage – soon turns deadly, and none of their lives will ever be the same. 

Available via Ravenous Romance, Amazon, Barnes & Noble and other eRetailers.

  9. I am lucky in love when it came to my husband of 23 years. When we first met I had just had a very bad break up with my last boyfriend. I spent most of the evening telling him what I would and would not put up with in a relationship. He asked me out in spite of my attitude, and the rest is history. We got married 5 years later and are still very much in love. I would say I am very lucky in love. Thanks for being part of the hop and for the chance to win. <^_^>

  14. What a great giveaway hop! I have yet to be lucky in love but I'm working on it. My favorite love book is "Outlander" by Diana Gabaldon. Jamie Fraser is amazing and beautiful. I enjoy St. Patty's Day and this year I'm spending it with my best friend. We're going to two Irish Pubs and also some dance clubs. I am also wearing green and am not a fan of getting pinched. I'm not Irish either, but many people think I am because my hair is red, my eyes green and my name is Meghan, but I'm not at all. I won't be telling anybody that, however… let them believe I'm Irish.
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  16. Catherine was the official winner of my stop. I'll be emailing shortly!
