Midweek Tease: It’s Valentine’s Day!


pexels-photo-302515.jpegHappy Valentine’s Day! This is the day set aside each year to honor and treat our loved ones. May you have the best Valentine’s Day ever. Mine started early with a gorgeous card. I’m truly blessed.

In honor of today, it’s fitting to focus on a love scene. Mine will be a lot tamer than many you’ll find here, but love is love and anyone lucky enough to find it is always a winner!

MWTease15Welcome to this week’s Midweek Tease. We have a full house this week with lots of tantalizing teases to tempt you. This blog is open. If you would like to join in, contact me and I’ll provide the information you need to get started.

This week’s tease comes from Wedding Bell Blues. It’s short and sweet, and absolutely perfect for the day.


“Congratulations,” Lucette said when MJ stepped up to the bar. “May I see the ring?”

MJ extended her hand.

Magnifique. It matches your eyes.”

“Glad to see you’re feeling better. What matches your eyes?” Lindsay asked, coming over to stand beside her.

“My ring,” MJ said. “I’ve agreed to marry Paul.”

She blinked. “You what?” The woman’s voice rose two octaves.

MJ flashed her ring and removed her glasses.

“You’re right; it does, and it’s gorgeous!” Lindsay exclaimed.

“Congratulations,” said Noel, reaching out to shake his hand. “I’m glad you guys worked things out. Lindsay was really worried.”

“Paul will never let anything happen to me,” she answered, knowing it was the truth. “Would you like to help us celebrate?”

Lindsay nodded, a huge grin on her face. “Damn right. I know there’s a story here, and I want to hear it all.”

“Two more glasses, Lucette,” Paul said. “We’ll sit over there.”

Champagne in hand, they returned to the table where she and Paul had sat earlier. At Lindsay’s insistence, between them they managed to tell her the story they’d concocted, adding details as the questions arose.

“This time, she said yes,” Paul finished, reached for her hand, his eyes fixed on hers, and planted a kiss in the palm of it. “I intend to spend the rest of my life convincing her she made the right choice.”

    • Thank you. We did Valentine’s Day on the last day of the cruise. He bought me black coral and jade jewelry in Cozumel, and we had dinner at one of the ship’s specialty restaurants that puts anything within a hundred miles to shame! I’m more than satisfied.
