Oh so Crazy

6 Sep

Life gets crazy. Some days it seems like my to-do list is only rivaled by the plethora of things I forgot to add to my to-do list, but still need to be done. Why in the great blue yonder is this list so long? I’m blessed to be home with my three kids, loved by my wonderful husband, doing a job I adore on a timeframe of my choosing, and happy to have a small, but fantastic group of friends…I should have more time to just…have time.

 

But I don’t and when the day of “aaaaaaaah!!” comes and I need to relax and I need to do nothing, I look to books. And more than just any books, I look for one that is sweet. Life is busy and crazy and sometimes, frankly, unpleasant. Sometimes I need a shot of sugar and when I do I find a sweet story that makes me sigh and giggle and smile even after it’s over.

 

With the crazy of getting back into the school routine or the crazy of having to hear about other people getting into that routine if it doesn’t apply to you, I hope you’re able to take a little sweet time for yourself. Fill it with something good that will make you smile!

During high school, Warren was just Wendy’s youth pastor. All grown up and shepherding over her own flock of church kids, Wendy Miller turns to her old friend for help. Not that Warren is that old. In fact, the two have a lot more in common than Wendy would have ever thought.

After the death of his wife, Warren was sure he was finished with relationships. Wendy changes that forgone conclusion with her bright spirit and zest for life. Lining up their desires when they’re at very different points in their lives proves a challenge that might take a little divine intervention, or at least help from friends.

Loving the Sweet Life

18 Nov

 

At the moment I’m writing something spicy and titillating, all the while plotting my next sweet story.

I find the combination of writing and thinking a little like mixing up batter for chocolate pudding while the savory aroma of a roast permeates the air. They don’t quite mix, but it’s not unpleasant either.

How far away from each other are sweet and savory? Really, they are only on adjacent sides of the tongue, so maybe sweet and spicy romance really aren’t so different. Sure, in one the language is a little harder, things are more graphic–but the main goal is still love.

In sweeter romance the doors stays shut, or maybe there isn’t even a reason to close the door. I tend to leave the cussing out of sweeter stories as well, but that just forces me and my characters to express themselves differently, but still practically in stressful or high emotion situation.

 

As I finish up with the sexy, naughty story, I’m really excited to start on my next sweet story. 2012 just might be the year of Stephanie J Grace…well, she’ll be there at least.
