Happy Valentine’s Day 2023

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

A simple definition for Valentine’s Day: A holiday for expressing love to the one you have an intense feeling of deep affection. This translates to one of the busiest days of the year for restaurants, florists, and chocolate makers.

History of Valentine’s Day

The auspicious beginning of this holiday has been filtered through the ages. The lasting legacy is about Saint Valentine. It is the story of a romantic priest who defied Roman Emperor Claudius II’s order that all marriages and engagements be canceled so he could fill his army.

The ruler believed the difficulty in recruiting soldiers was because the men were married. When he discovered that Valentine was secretly marrying couples, he was beaten and put to death on February 14 (circa 270 A.D.). The priest was proclaimed Saint Valentine after his death.

Through the ages, Valentine’s Day celebrations have changed and some would argue its luster has been lost. Yet, love never fails. Share your love with someone special this Valentine’s Day.

Hello February!

This month is one of my favorites for it’s a reminder that love is in the air. Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and that’s big for restaurants, florists, and jewelers. With the past year of being on edge, the world needs a moment to pause and reflect on the joy of love whether past or present.

You’ll notice in all my novels there’s romance sometimes good and other times bumpy. I can’t imagine writing a story that doesn’t include a romantic aspect. Think James Bond. The story is much better because of the backstory that often becomes center stage.

Beginning February 2nd – 9th, The Death of Me eBook will be available for $2.99. Read it, and enjoy the ups and downs of the romance of the new Italian heir. In the end, I believe you’ll be rooting for the next-generation godfather. I look forward to your reviews.
