New Short Story – Greg Love Story (spoiler book #6)

Love Notes 1: Meant to Be…MINE

 

“Sweet Dreamers, this love story is a spoiler for book #6… 2 B with U. but it’s oh so worth the read!” – Emmy

“That Feeling” by Emmy Z. Madrigal is of the unexpected type. In this modern tale, rock front man Greg Stang, falls in love at first sight (or is that first hear?) when he overhears the melancholy piano playing of the hauntingly beautiful Raven. Will she return his affections? Or is he just another guy blindly following her?

And it also includes a story from a new Regency author, Lela Bay.

“The Unusual Manners of Mr. Aarons” by Lela Bay is of the unplanned variety. In this Regency tale, Emmaline is taken by Mr. Aaron’s good looks and peculiar interests, but it appears like he’s after her cousin. Beautiful Catherine Connersfield is the more sensible choice, but will she have him? More to the point, will Emmaline stand by and let her?

As a bonus, if you’re searching for stories to love, get to know the characters of some of our other Meant to Be authors in the 21 Questions section of this book.

Whether you are in love with your soulmate or still searching, we hope these stories inspire hope, imagination, and love.

KissCounts♥

A few of you have emailed me about the kisses in the Sweet Dreams and Anime Girl books. I’ve always loved the “new love” act of kissing. I love watching it, experiencing it, and reading about it.

Ashley wrote to say, “Emmy, I love love love reading Cynthia and Derek making out. Since they haven’t actually done it, it makes it that much more exciting. Don’t get me wrong, I love love love reading about Victoria and Rob, but they have other things going on that makes kissing just something leading to something more.”

Ashley, I agree. The first time kiss, or the hot, new relationship kiss is one of the joys in life that can’t be fully described, but we as authors try!

Shawna said, “Ian! Who is this guy? Can you deliver him to my house pls? Cyn and Ian’s hot kissing is making me so jealous. Damned CYN! Why does she get all the hot ones?” 

Hehehe Shawna. If I could send you Ian, I would, hon. Ian was a pop-out character. One of those guys that just begs to be written about, right? I don’t think Cynthia really knew what she was doing there, but man, it made for a great distraction after Derek’s “Flying Solo” comment.

Kate said, “Have you ever thought about making a list of how many kisses your characters kiss? I bet it’s alot!”

Well, Kate, your wish is my command. Now I have a new page on this site posting the KissCounts♥ of all the published books, with more to come. I’ve also posted some other books and movies. If you’d like to add your KissCount♥ to this page, just email me. It can be your own book, a book you love, or even a movie! Come on, you know you have that favorite movie that you know all the words (and kisses) to. Send it in to help build the page so all of us can see what your favorite KissCounts♥ are.

Check out the full list of KissCounts♥ (constantly updated) here: KissCounts♥

Mostly A

ROBERT MALLOY

Not only do you strive for true love, you have the high class tastes and panache to pull off even the most luxuriant love affair. Like Rob, you take charge and plan everything. You think that perfection is not an unattainable goal. Be careful of those you love. Of course you want to protect and spoil them, but sometimes they may want to plan a weekend. Let them and you’ll have more fun than you can imagine.

Mostly B

VICTORIA KNOX

You’re the type of romantic person who may not always have the cash to be extravagant, but always make it special. Like Victoria, you don’t mind where you are as long as you are there with someone you love. You dream of true love and will most likely have it, as long as you don’t let your own self doubt ruin it.

Mostly C

CYNTHIA PORTER

You can see the beauty in being in love, even if you can’t always enjoy it yourself. Like Cynthia, you tend to stand back and wait for the rose to bloom rather than rush in before the bud has had time to blossom. However, if inspired by the right person, you have a tendency to get too hot too quick and cut yourself on the thorns.

Mostly D

DEREK MONTGOMERY

Injured by love, you strive to make you way back to the person who believed in that one true love. So, he/she wasn’t the one? Like Derek, you need to learn to accept that person wasn’t right for you and move on to someone who is. Your new love, who helps heal your broken heart, might need some healing too.

Mostly E

GREG STANG

Alright, so you’re not much on follow through, so what. You’ve got a great attitude and you’re fun to be around. You played, and that’s all that matters. Love to you is fun and should stay that way. Like Greg, you don’t let yourself be bogged down by rules and guidelines. Let the love in your life be expressed through music, art, or literature and you will be just as happy.

Mostly F

RAUL LaMOND

You’ve been crushed by love, and really, you don’t have time or energy to spend on some dumb game. Like Raul, you’ll stand on the sidelines and watch your friends enjoy life as you nurse your still bleeding heart. As long as they know you’re there for them in tough times, you can nurse your crush. But be careful. Sometimes your lackadaisical attitude can make people think you don’t care about them and you may end up with no one at all.

Have a great Valentine’s Day!
