Valentine’s day has always been one of my favorite holidays, Hallmark or not. Years later I still remember the little valentine cards we’d pass out in my grammar school class and the tiny heart candies with sweet little writings on them. My dream proposal was for one on Valentine’s day. Last year on Valentine’s day, or actually the week before, one of my local TV stations hosted Allison Brennan, Brenda Novak, Karin Tabke and I for a week of romance. It was total fun. We brought copies of our most romantic books and talked with a couple of the hosts about them and out of that came The Thrill is Gone, The Four of Cups, my entry into the eXtasy tarot series, due out March 15, 2010. I knew I’d struck a cord when my editor told me she cried at a certain part of the book. I know I got teary when I wrote that scene. But my very best Valentine’s day ever was in 1992.
A year later, on Valentine’s day my knight told me for the first time he loved me. Seventeen years later he is still my best friend and every once in awhile I turn around and realize I’ve fallen in love with him all over again.
