Inspiration by violin again

Standard

Twice before I wrote about being inspired by Lindsey Stirling

https://dab10author.wordpress.com/2014/12/13/the-woe-of-a-creative-mind/

and

https://dab10author.wordpress.com/2015/10/15/an-ode-to-authors/

So today i was trying to write a poem for my wife and thought it worked before

so I went to Lindsey Stirling’s you tube and found

and wrote the following for my wife Tina

Hold on to my heart

From miraculous to mundane

beyond endurance to free of pain

the everyday to the quite insane

I can handle anything

if you

hold on to my heart

I can turn the tides or blow a bubble or two

take the weight of the world or tie a shoe

wait for eternity or just a few

there is nothing I can’t do

if you

hold on to my heart

I could move the world or just the car

learn the tango or look at a star

be the life of the party or tend the bar

sit still for hours or run very far

I will do it all

if you

hold on to my heart

I hope you all enjoyed it and mostly hope Tina enjoyed it 😉

as always thank you for reading

BOOK REVIEW THORNE: Rose’s Dark Contract: (Book 1)

Standard

WOW JUST WOW

THORNE: Rose’s Dark Contract: (Book 1)

I wouldn’t normally get a book like this myself

but I won it in a contest so I started reading

(and couldn’t stop)

if you like BDSM, great character development, unknown attractions, and a captivating story line

this will work for you.

Throw in some dark pasts and people learning about themselves and you get one heck of a good story

blurb

Show me the steep and thorny way to heaven…the primrose path—Shakespeare

William Thorne is a powerful man with dark needs and a troubled past who doesn’t have the time nor the desire for romantic relationships or notions.

Through meticulous planning and iron-clad contracts, Thorne has managed to maintain a modicum of balance, control, and happiness by employing personal assistants to aid him in all aspects of his professional and personal life.

Sex with no strings attached. Obedience without questions. An arrangement of mutual benefit. No mess. No love. No expectations. Nothing beyond a signed contract.

But when Thorne meets recent music grad, Victoria Rose, the shy and beautiful down-on-her-luck waitress, obsession replaces his carefully constructed thinking. He becomes so fixated on having her, without a full understanding of who she is, that he rushes her contract, making mistake after mistake before the ink even dries. His once neat and controlled existence becomes blurred and smudged.

Can the mistakes he makes be erased from Rose’s dark contract? Or will the damage leave an indelible mark that nobody could have seen coming?

About author

rb

R.B. O’Brien has always been drawn to the more taboo side of storytelling, even as a young adult, from hiding books from strict Catholic parents as a teen to getting lost in the erotic sections of bookstores for hours. As a writer, O’Brien explores the darker, erotic nature of relationships, those riddled with the reality of insecurities and human folly, exposing the vulnerability, emotional turmoil, and occasional pain that can come from losing oneself in the heat of passion.

O’Brien holds a degree in English literature and happily resides in the Northeast of the United States. Her first series, the highly acclaimed Natalie’s Edge trilogy, is now available in ebook format and print, the third of which, Redemption, was nominated for the Golden Flogger Award for best BDSM romance. THORNE, O’Brien’s second dark romance suspense series, Rose’s Dark Contract and Rose’s Dark Secret, is also available now in eprint, a tale where things are not what they seem. Expect Book Three December 2016. O’Brien has just released her award-winning series, formerly the Capture of Rosemary, The IMOGEN series.

The Crazy Lady Authors bare it all!
It’s hot, sexy, sweaty, smelly…wait! What? It’s Erotically Incorrect, that’s what it is! Let’s face it, sex isn’t always pretty. In fact, it’s often weird, hilarious, and downright awkward! What really happens when couples sneak a little ‘sexy time’ in between work and the kids, without Barry White playing in the background, when the participants have cellulite, unshaved legs, and may be falling asleep on the job? You get one funny, in-your-face look at the erotic escapades of every woman! From high drama to hi-jinks, meet the non-leading lady, leading ladies of Erotically Incorrect. We’re keeping it real! Trust us, we’ve been there, done that. There are probably pictures…maybe!
Heat Level: Hot! Grown folks’ language and situations. Not your grandma’s box set…unless your grandma is a real pip!

By Patient Lee

This is a great story that starts with depression then give you a bit of heat and a heart warming human reaching out to help.

Then gets in to a May / September romance

with a bit more heat…

and the humor that is in all of Patient Lee’s works.

A great read and one I highly recommend

A FEW MORE ODD JOKES

Standard

I haven’t posted in a while so I thought I would give a funny or two.

A man in a restaurant was making an ass of himself.
The wait staff had enough,  the all went to the table and removed everything from it.
As he complained to the manager,
“Then they took all the stuff off the table.”
The manager looks at the man and said
“Oh no sir, it was de-served.”

Groan all you want.

What’s orange and sounds like a parrot??

A carrot.

How many psychiatrists does it take to change a light bulb?
Just one, but the bulb has to WANT to change.

Q. How many computer programmers does it take to change a light bulb?

A. Zero, that is a hardware problem.
