Random Acts of Valentines
by J. Rose Allister

What comes to mind when you think of Valentine's Day? Love, roses, champagne, and chocolates? I like to think of Valentine's Day as one of many opportunities to celebrate romance. Why not make this Valetine's the start of a new year-round tradition by taking one day each month as a personal Valentine's Day? Even better, keep this a secret and surprise that special someone when they least expect (or most need) a random act of Valentines!

Ideas for Random Acts of Valentines:
1.  Throw a wine tasting party for two. Fruit and cheese are welcome, but no glasses allowed. Sample favorite wines off each other's flesh.
2. You've heard of breakfast in bed...try a dinner in bed! What you decide to serve for dessert is purely up to you. :)
3. Naked movie night! Cuddle up under a shared blanket with a movie rental and some snacks. Bonus points if you don't make it to the end of the flick.
4. Special delivery! Arrange to have something special delivered to your lover at work: flowers, edible arrangements, etc. Keep the accompanying note Fit For The Workplace, but flirty enough to hint at the promise of things to come.
5. On a practical note, purchase goodies on clearance after Valentine's Day and stash them to hand out throughout the year.
6. Attention writers: create a short, but hot scene featuring your valentine as the star character. Leave it on their pillow or in a jacket pocket/briefcase where they'll be sure to see it. Then bring the scene to life later on.
7. Send your lover on a sex toy treasure hunt. Hide an assortment of fun items--lotion or oil, a collar, edible panties, body paint, etc--around the house, along with notes containing clues to find the next time. Extra points if you include clever and naughty suggestions as part of the clues to build anticipation! The last item is you in the bedroom, naked and waiting to try out the treasure hoard!

Have fun sharing random acts of Valentines! 

Suite Seduction
by J. Rose Allister

A hotel room mix-up at a hot island resort gives Collier and Julietta the passion of a lifetime--in the arms of a total stranger. 
They must come to terms with the fallout from their unexpected encounter, unaware that their time together was no accident. Supernatural strings are being pulled by two immortals in a contest to prove whose powers are greater. And where Love and Lust come out to play, none will remain untouched.

  1. thanks for the wonderful giveaway

  2. thanks for the giveaway. romance comes to mind.

  3. Nice suggestions!

  4. A few more suggestions

    *Create scavenger hunt starting a picture on the front door and leading them throughout the house. You can also give them a piece of a puzzle that when put together shows a picture of you together kissing.
    *At the front door leave a note for your valentine that has a blindfold in it. The note says put on the blindfold and knock 3 times. Then you go out and take your valentine and lead them to the bathroom, give them a sensual bath. Then dry them off and put them in a formal dress, then sit them down to a candle lit dinner where you take off the blindfold.
    *Get a shower curtain and lots of towels. Put the shower curtain down and get flavored oils and have you and your valentine engage in erotic wrestling with using the oils to be more slippery
    *Make a fire in the backyard and get some sleeping bags to have a romantic night under the stars
    *Nothing says valentines like a dark chocolate fondue (milk chocolate is also good).
