It may come as no surprise, but some men and women do not have a partner to celebrate Saint Valentine’s Day. Moreover, with COVID-19 still here, along with the discovery of a new strain, folks should avoid traveling, large gatherings, and remain home. Many couples also have a long-distance relationship.

Therefore, we have listed five romance books that you can read on this special day. If you are lucky to have someone in your life with you, read the stories together.

 

To purchase these books, click on the title. Happy Reading and Have a Romantic Saint Valentine’s Day.

This is the author’s first and only sensual romance short story, focusing on Cinnamon Jones a divorcée who has decided to change her way of thinking when it comes to meeting men. No more will she settle for someone who does not measure up to her high standards, which she did when she first met her husband, Horatio Jones. When he became successful, he dumped her. However, after she meets Ray Samuel in a café, sparks will fly. Will Cinnamon find true love, or will she end up making the same mistake twice?

Royal Cowries by Stella-Eromonsere-Ajanaku

This saga takes place during the late 1400s in Igodomigodo, an ancient city in Nigeria where men rule and women are beholden to the statutes of the land, a time where tradition, religion, combat, loyalty, principles, romance, love, and passion define a nation. But when Uvbi, a true feminist is ordered by her authoritarian father to marry a ruthless warrior, she disobeys his demands and flees. When she crosses paths with Nagudia, a  humble craftsman and warrior, it sets the backdrop for an absorbing romantic story.

Presents an authentic view on how destiny can decide who we choose to love and whether the desire to be with that person develops into a lasting bond when tradition, religion, class, and the changing roles of women come into play.

Virtual Book Tour - Meet Megan Slayer, Author of Doc Cedarwood

GENRE: Contemporary, LGBTQ Erotic Romance




Can an accident and a rim job lead to lasting love?

Aiden Connor isn't looking for a date. Sure, he wants one, but relationships seem to be too difficult to maintain. He's an ER doctor and doesn't have time for commitment...that is, until he runs over a curb and needs a new rim for his sports car. The mechanic isn't anything like he expects, but could be the one man he needs if he's willing to open his mind and heart.


Matt Phillips equates dating with disaster, but sees himself as an eternal optimist. When he catches sight of Aiden, he wants to give relationships a try. Every cell in his body screams to get the sexy doctor naked and in his bed. But Matt has demons and addictions he's still working through. Will he fall prey to his past or learn and move forward with the hot doctor?

Maybe I’m dating the wrong men.

 

“I keep telling myself that. Jordan tells me the same thing, but I still want to clobber Farin when he goes Groomzilla on us. I wasn’t this bad when I married Jordan—at least I don’t think so. We walked, we stood, we said I do, then had one hell of a party at the house.” Colin shook his head. “I just wouldn’t have thought he’d be…like this.”

 

“It’ll be over in two days. You’ll live.” Aiden clapped Colin on the shoulder. “Speaking of days, I have exactly one day off before I’m expected back at the hospital. I’m on for an eight-hour shift on Saturday, so if I’m running late, that’s why.”

 

“We’ll keep an eye out. Thanks for the heads-up and thanks for talking to the group. Have a good night.” Colin winked, then strode away.

 

Aiden grabbed his jacket from the coat rack. The weight of a twenty-four-hour shift had gotten to him. He wanted to go home but wondered if he’d make it. As he navigated through the halls of the hospital, he waved at a couple of the nurses and, in the foyer, nodded to the elderly woman behind the main counter. The moment he stepped into the chilly October air, he blinked and dragged a long breath into his lungs. Nothing worked to wake him up like crisp fall evenings. Well, nothing like those and a good blow job in the morning, but he wasn’t likely to get one. He’d need a boyfriend first. He’d worry about his lack of a partner later. Right now, he wanted to go home, slip into a warm bath or hot shower and collapse for twelve hours straight. Maybe he would meet someone at the wedding or reception.

 

Maybe hell will freeze over first.

Don’t Allow Family Members to Rain on Your Relationship by Miss Know It All

Miss Know It All  

It is usually a given that some family members will try to interfere with your relationship by providing unwanted advice about the person you have selected to be your significant other. While some members mean well, others can create havoc by spreading rumors or lies about your partner. A few will go so far as to say they saw your man or woman engaging in some sexual activities, which may be far from the truth due to resentment.

I enjoy watching the reality TV court show: Couples Court with the Cutlers, who are married attorneys, where couples come to court to find out if their lover or spouse is cheating by taking a lie detector test. Some of the reasons folk give for suspecting their partner of cheating can be hilarious, like sniffing a man’s private part or finding condoms or a woman’s panties in a car. Sometimes a family member has supposedly seen the person cheating, yet the lie detector will indicate no cheating. Most of the time, the relationship will become stronger through counseling; in some cases, the bond or family liaison will end because people refuse to mind their own business.

As of December 4, 2020, there were around 65.6 million global cases of COVID-19. Over 45 million people had recovered from the disease, while there had been around 1.5 million deaths. The United States, Brazil, and India have been among the countries hardest hit by the pandemic.
