Do you have naughty or nice thoughts?

I was reading an article that said that marriages and relationships stay together when one or all parties of the relationship express naughty thoughts about the other. 

SOOOOOO my question is do you tell your partner or partners of those naughty thoughts? If not why are you shy or afraid of what he/she or them might say?

HEARTS FORGED IN FIRE




http://www.cassandredayne.com/index.php

When the loss is so great you shut down your heart... Coming Feb 3rd from Rebel Ink Press

HEARTS FORGED IN FIRE
For rancher Zeke Parker, every day was difficult. Not only was Rattlesnake Ranch falling on hard times but he couldn’t get over the horrible grief plaguing him for over a year. The death of his lover, David, had nearly stripped away his soul. As Valentine’s Day drew near his sister Sandi was determined to drag him out of his private hell. Agreeing to be a part of a charity auction for the humane society, Zeke figured one date with a wealthy woman wasn’t going to kill him. But during dinner at Sandi’s house, Zeke meets movie producer Drake Wilson, who's scouting locations for an upcoming movie, and sparks fly.

After an impetuous moment of heat, both men are skittish and each have their reasons for pulling back. But Cupid has other ideas in mind. When a rouse brings the two men together, passion roars between them but damning secrets are too much for either to deal with. Just as Zeke is determined to give up on love forever, Cupid intervenes again and this time, the arrow goes straight through Zeke's heart.

Discoveries

Have you ever happened on a piece of information that blows you away?  I have an sometimes it is a good thing and sometimes it is a bad thing.  So now my question is what do you do with it? 

Me sometimes I sit on the information and wait to see what develops,  true it comes back and bites me in the ass occasionally but sometimes it works in my favor.

I guess "Patience" does pay off...

Dana Pratola - BIO

BIO: Dana Pratola is a 47 yr. old mother of 3, married 25 yrs. The Lord is her Savior, writing is her passion and publishing inspirational books that show the grace of God is her ministry.
 

What do a Christian woman and a heathen biker have in common? The devil, of course.

Tessa is called by God to stand in the gap for a man she's never met. When she does meet Gunnar, she learns he's arrogant, unsaved and hostile. But he's also HOT, lol.  She can't understand why God would toss her together with a man like him, knowing she would be attracted, so she wonders if it's a trick of the enemy to make her stumble in her faith. Meanwhile, Gunnar is tormented by demonic visitations and looking for any way out. Killing himself might be the only way to end his miserable existence. But God has other plans.


Cover by Dana Pratola - EXERPT

 Tessa whirled away from him toward the door.

     His hand was on her arm in a second. “Where do you think you’re going?” he asked. The sudden awareness of how slim her arm was in his grasp caused him to loosen his hold.

     “I won’t stand here and argue with you,” she told him.

     “Then let’s not argue.”

     Slowly, he pulled her closer, watching the pulse jump in her neck. She didn’t resist when he lowered his mouth to hers.

     Gunnar could have sworn her bones liquefied as she melted against him, into him. This was risky. It should stop. She was like a drug, the feel of her an addiction, and he feared if he didn’t break it off now, there would be no going back. He drank in a few more seconds before levering her away.

     His own ragged breathing drowned out the sound of hers, but her mouth opened and closed, evidence that she too struggled to form a coherent sentence. Desire snapped in the air between them, and he turned away before it could draw him back.

     What was he thinking, kissing her that way? He wasn’t—that was the problem. He hadn’t recognized how close he was to flashpoint and had allowed emotion to rule. Normally the emotion was anger. It was familiar, safe, he knew how to direct it, what to expect in retaliation.

     But this…altogether different. In the short time he’d known Tessa, she had infiltrated his core needs, forcing him to reevaluate his objectives, making him

realize he still wanted things he’d long ago dismissed as impossible: a home, children, stability. Consequently, he feared things he hadn’t before: isolation, failure, dependence. It was too much, too soon.

     He hadn’t lied to her mother, he hardly knew her. Yet she had already influenced him in ways he couldn’t express. What would happen over time, six months maybe, when he became more attached and unable to let her go?

     When Tessa finally realized who and what he was?

     “We can’t do this,” he told her, looking back. Tessa stood frozen, catching her breath. “I won’t get us into a situation we’ll regret.”

     “But…”



     “You’re not ready for this.” The light of battle sparked to life in her eyes,

dissipating the haze of longing. “Neither am I.”

     “Because I’m a virgin,” she said, disgusted.

     “Yes.” He snapped the word out, but hearing the harshness of it, softened his tone. It wasn’t her fault he wanted her. Nor was he pushing her away because of her inexperience—at least not in the way she thought.

     “You’re innocent and I’m not. In any sense of the word.”

     Tessa crossed her arms. “So it’s your plan to keep turning me on and off like a light switch until when? Until you’re bored or decide to move back to your house?”

     “I didn’t mean for this to happen.”

     “You want me.”

     It was a simple statement. He couldn’t have said why it sounded like a threat. “I do. But it’s not going to happen.”

     “Because you say so,” she said with a nod. “Interesting. You didn’t want my mother to treat me like a child, but ten minutes later you’re doing it.”

     “This is different.”

     “Because you know what’s best? She thinks the same thing.”

     Well, what could he say to that?

      Tessa raised her chin and went to the door. “Please leave.”

     She’d given him his escape from the mess he’d created. But for how long? Until the next time they were in the same room together and the scent of her freshly scrubbed skin snared him? Or she walked past and sent him one of those long looks she probably

wasn’t even aware of? The ones that made his heart spasm and his brain misfire? He had no intention of going through this again.

     When she reached for the knob, he slapped a hand onto the painted wood of the door.

     “I asked you to leave.” Her voice was laced with nerves and heat.

     Patience ebbing, Gunnar hissed out a breath, took her by the arm and sat her on the bed.



     “What are—”

     “Sit there and shut up.”

     “Don’t tell me to shut up.”

     “Just…please.” Gunnar scraped a hand over the stubble on his head, then jammed his hands in his pockets.

     He didn’t intend for things to spin this way. When he came into the house, it was with the desire to grab a quick shower before meeting Max and David at McIntosh’s. Almost at once, he was being lured by the sound of women’s voices singing the praises of a guy named Carter in an overt attempt to interest someone.

     Entering the living room, seeing the look on Tessa’s face, it became clear she was the intended mark. She didn’t look interested, but it irritated him to think she might be. Then, to find the jerk’s card with his friendly little message…

     In hindsight, keeping her mother and friends here might have been the wiser course. If they were still here, he would be on his way to a friendly game of pool. But jealousy was a newly discovered muscle, and it grew and strengthened when flexed.

     He gazed out the window to where the clouds skidded away, revealing a sky of pale blue, in direct contrast to the gloomy gray of his heart. Below was a fenced in yard with thick grass, though browning, and a tall gnarled oak. The kind of yard he would have loved to play in as a kid.

     Instead, he’d kept himself occupied in dim hallways and dismal rooms where he’d been forced to wait quietly while his mother entertained her boyfriend of the hour one thin wall away. It was a world away from here. A world away from Tessa.

    He glanced at the fresh flowers on the table under the window, a reminder of the kind of woman Tessa was and the fact that she was far, far out of his league. He needed to stop dreaming about what he could never have and end this stupidity now before it got out of hand. And maybe the best way to do it was to force her to see the differences between them.

Questions for Authors from My Friends:

What is your favorite book that you wrote?  So far THE COVERING since that’s the first finished =-)

What book is coming up next and when is the release date? I have about 5 books in various stages of completion so no release dates yet. I haven’t even submitted them yet.

How do you come up with your stories and characters? It’s always different. Sometimes it’s seeing a situation and thinking, no, this should have happened. I do the same with dreams. If I don’t like the outcome I rewrite. It can also be something I’ve heard. I get a lot of idea from music.

Experience?   

Dreams?

Feng shui?

Why don’t authors call the parts what they are instead of the descriptions like “hard rock of manliness”? LOL, that’s is pretty bad. Speaking for myself, this book is Inspirational Romance so if I called a @#$% a @#$% I wouldn’t be published.

Have you ever recreated sex scenes from your past experiences? Nope.

What was the first book you can remember reading? Too far back to remember. My dad read me stories all my life and I learned to read by 5.

Who inspired you to write? God. I believe God puts the desire to do something in our hearts and with His help He brings it to pass. It’s up to us how we use it.



Fun Facts:

Favorite Color: I don’t have a favorite color. I do have favorite color combo preferences though, like autumn colors. And I prefer darker colors to pastels.

Favorite Pet: Lola. Lola is our Maltese, who is too smart for her own good and WAY too smart for mine.

Favorite Author: King David
