Til Life Do Us Part, by Carmen Stefanescu #RomanticIdea

Carmen is joining me again for a few more romantic summer ideas!

Here are some romantic ideas to rekindle the spark:
Learn a romantic foreign language.
Take an intro-class together for a language that neither of you speak -  French, Italian, Spanish or Romanian  simply sound romantic -  and practice whispering sweet nothings into each other’s ears, in that new language!
Cuddle up together in a horse-drawn carriage ride.
You’ll probably feel like you are in a romantic comedy, and that’s a good thing.
Read each other’s Tarot Cards.
Take turns reading each other’s fortunes using Tarot Cards. Even if you don’t believe in astrology, it will make for one fun evening spent together.
Go on a ghost tour together.
Find the nearest ghost tour in your city and head out on the adventure together. At least you’ll have someone’s hand to hold onto should things start to get a little spooky.
Feed each other fondue at home.
It really doesn’t get sexier than feeding each other chocolate dipped strawberries.

Till Life Do Us Part 

Publisher: Solstice Publishing

Genre:  Paranormal Romance

Reincarnation, Mystery, Suspense

Release date: 9th June 2016


Barbara Heyer can hear voices of dead people. They whisper of their deaths, seek comfort for those left behind, and occasionally even warn her about future events. But when Barbara’s brother, Colin, is accused of murder, it will take more than her gift to prove his innocence.

Becoming smitten with the handsome investigator, Detective Patrick Fischer, is a serious complication given his assignment to her brother’s case. Barbara senses there is something far deeper—and perhaps much older—than the surface attraction between them. Could that be why she’s visited by a mysterious woman named Emma in her dreams? Could past life regression tie all the seemingly unconnected events together?

Barbara and Patrick must overcome heartache to find the truth to save Colin, and perhaps themselves.

 Author Bio

Carmen Stefanescu resides in Romania, the native country of the infamous vampire Count Dracula, but where, for about 50 years of communist dictatorship, just speaking about God, faith, reincarnation or paranormal phenomena could have led someone to great trouble - the psychiatric hospital if not to prison.

Teacher of English and German in her native country and mother of two daughters, Carmen Stefanescu survived the grim years of communist oppression, by escaping in a parallel world, that of the books.

         Her first novel, Shadows of the Past, was released in 2012 by Wild Child Publishing, USA.

          Carmen joined the volunteer staff at Marketing For Romance Writers Author blog, and is the coordinator of #Thursday13 posts.

Barbara stroked her chin still undecided what to do. Then leaning forward toward Patrick she took his hand in hers. “Thank you for trusting me with this, Patrick. Even if it came so late. I needed to know it.” She stood up, and to hide her emotion fiddled with the empty coffee cups on the table.
Patrick came closer and turned her to face him, gathering her into his arms. He buried his face in her hair and then he stroked it back from her face in a gesture of utmost tenderness.
Her whole body was burning with an unquenchable fever, and her head felt light as she savored his touch. She loved him so much it hurt. If only he would tell her that he loved her, too. She barely had time to register the feeling before his mouth closed over hers, possessive and eager, leaving her breathless.
“Dear Barbara,” he whispered and wrapping an arm around her waist he deepened the kiss. The scent of him assaulted her senses. His chest was hard, his masculinity overwhelming.
She quivered, wanting more of his kiss. For one blissful moment, she knew only raw heat, the sensual intimacy of his tongue twining with hers, a rush of giddy pleasure that left her senseless, blindly clinging to him.
She hadn’t expected him to kiss so hungrily. She locked her arms behind his neck and looked up into his eyes. Their bodies seemed to melt together. He bent his head and she closed her eyes, trembling a little as his lips roved over her eyelids and nose and cheeks, before settling on her mouth again.
Patrick whispered, with an unsteady smile, close to her lips. “I love you. I’ve loved you since the first day I met you. Perhaps I wasn’t aware of it right then. But later...”
“Shhh,” she whispered back. “No need for an explanation.”
Their breathing mingled raggedly, and he held her tight. Barbara shook from head to foot, overwhelmed by the rush of desire enveloping her. For a long, mindless interval they stood locked in each other’s arms, deaf and blind to anything other than the primeval forces joining them together in mutual need.
And then, he frowned and as though cold water had been poured over his head, he shook his head and let her go. His eyes blazed with suppressed desire. He cleared his voice. “I didn’t mean to do this,” he said loosening his tie. “If you and I ever progress beyond this stage, Barbara, it’s up to you to make the move. I have to go back to work now. I’ll phone you before we leave the precinct,” he said and stormed out of the room.
