I’m definitely not a morning person. Worse, I’m tortured not only by my alarm, but also my husband who wakes up way before dawn.
I persevere, and after several cups of coffee, I’m ready to slay some words.
Listening to music helps.
Sometimes, I get distracted by social media, but scrolling through Men and Coffee on Instagram is totally about research.
It’s the absolute greatest when I make my daily word count or deadline. Of course, I have to celebrate! If I don’t reach my goal, it’s a bummer, and I try to remind myself not to drown in disappointment.
Sweet dreams are the best way to end the day. Tomorrow is another day filled with words, romance, and happily-ever-afters.
Someone once told me that there are worst things than being left at the altar. Well, not many, in my experience. That was six months ago, though, and my life has moved on. Heck, I have a new job lined up and I’m leaving town.
But, I can’t deny that my love life kind of sucks.
That’s why I let my friends convince me to join them for Club Escapade’s Breakup Bash. And we might just be disillusioned enough to actually enjoy it. Last time we were here, it was for my bachelorette party. That night, I met one of the dancers – Raphael – and when he flirted with me, I almost forgot I was engaged. And there’s a part of me that never forgot him.
Now, it seems my friends have wandered off and I’m thinking about calling it a night. Until the music begins and I see Raphael, my secret fantasy, on stage. And this time, I’m definitely not engaged…
Nina Crespo lives in Florida where she indulges in her favorite passions — the beach, kick boxing, a good glass of wine, date night with her own real-life hero and dancing. Her lifelong addiction to romance began in her teens while on a “borrowing spree” in her older sister’s bedroom where she discovered her first romance novel. Curiosity about people and places, including what’s beyond the stars, fuels her writer’s imagination. This wellspring of inspiration allows Nina to create sensual contemporary stories and steamy paranormal tales, which she hopes will feed your own addiction for love, romance, and happily ever after.
