Chocolate makes everything better
My story has to do with chocolate and love, but not the romantic kind of love. A few years ago, I was going through a particularly rough time in my writing career. My young teenage daughter knew how much I loved chocolate and remembered me making the comment, "Chocolate makes everything better."
So she had my husband drive her to the local sweet shop, and used her own money to buy me my favorite chocolate. They put the chocolates in a simple white bag. She wrote on the outside, "This will make everything better, Mom."
And you know what? It did make everything better. I still have that bag, by the way. But the chocolates? Long gone, of course.

Here is a sneak peak of my newest story, an erotic romance that releases this week.
The man hooked his hands under the frame and tugged upward. She gasped. He was coming inside! He swung his leg quietly over the windowsill, his foot touching carpet.
“You told me you were on the fifth floor,” he said as he swung his other leg inside and unfolded to his full height. His voice was deep and raspy. His white teeth flashed in the dim light as he grinned.
Oh. My. God. He was in her apartment. “I, ah—” He must have seen her through the window and thought she was the other Marie. Again. Her insides fluttered with possibilities.
Tell him! He stalked toward the bed like a wild animal hunting its prey. He eased the sword from its sheath and leaned over her, holding it above her face. She, Cassie Snow, was smack dab in the middle of another couple’s naughty fantasy. Her eyes widened and need pulsed between her legs. Tell him he’s in the wrong apartment!
“You said you like to be scared,” he growled, right before he clamped a hand over her mouth and pressed the back of her head into the pillow.
He held the long silver blade in front of her eyes. “Make a sound and you’re dead. Understand?” She nodded and immediately stilled. She knew she should tell him he had the wrong girl. But she was always the wrong girl. Was it so horrible that she wanted to be the right girl for a change? Was it so wrong that she wished, just for one night, to be someone else? Someone who acted out naughty role-playing?
All you have to do to enter the giveaway is leave me a comment on this post telling me about a time someone gave you roses or chocolate.
I will randomly choose a winner on May 10. Good luck!
