Inspiration by violin again

Standard

Twice before I wrote about being inspired by Lindsey Stirling

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.

GOT TO TAKE THE GOOD WITH THE BAD

Standard

I have never been a good sleeper. Most would label me insomniac.

Sometimes I wake in the middle of the night and go back to sleep shortly.

But the other night I had an idea. Even a simple thought.

And suddenly I am thinking my way through a new universe many books.

So I did what I normally do got up to write down the basic idea,

three hours latter I had to stop to get my girls up for school.

But the ideas kept coming.

It was a mixed gene syfi romance fantasy space opera and even writing this

more ideas are bashing at my brain.

The problem is that this would take years and years of writing and as of yet,

I am still a part time writer.

Lol its giving me a headache but I wouldn’t trade it for anything.

I can just hope all my other problems are as enjoyable as this one.

this is what i was going to write about this week

I read some two line horror stories online

so I thought to write some of my own

#horror in two lines

I watched the moon break through the clouds right above my head,

then a second moon appeared, wait I am in my bed

eyes

I keep hearing my wife complaining
I went out a buried her deeper and she is still complaining

as always thanks for reading
