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

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 


Genre:  Paranormal Romance

Mystery, Suspense

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

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


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.

for Till Life Do Us Part:


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
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.
