Valentine’s Day is Fast Approaching…Do You Love It or Hate It?

So, when all the red hits hard the card stores, candy isles  and the front of the lingerie stores, among other places, do you get all giddy or cringe as you hold down your urge to puke? LOL

While many couples in love can’t wait to make romantic plans, there are other people, not all of them single, who for one reason or the other dislike the holiday. If you are in a new relationship, for example, Valentine’s Day can be a LOT of pressure. While each holiday  has it’s own set of Scrooges for whatever reasons, I would venture to say that Valentine’s Day has a huge club for them where they are revered. We’ve seen it in enough movies, read it in enough books. The concept of being anti-Valentine’s is surely nothing new.

But, unable to help myself, I goggled anti-Valentine’s Day – hey, I’m a college student and that’s what I do! LOL But, let me tell you I was sorry and happy with the results this time. I got an overwhelming 25,500,000 results. There were interesting products to buy, none of them holding back on the nasty sentiments. There were anti-red holiday songs and poems, YouTube had no lack of examples of hate for all things cupid and hearts either. I mean just shop Amazon for a few seconds for anti-valentine’s or cupid humor. In certain cities there are even anti-valentine’s events at bars and gyms for both men and women.

The articles were amusing to read, at least I thought so. And I’m more of the indifferent type: I mean yeah if I am dating a guy who loves to pull out all the stops, but I’m quite happy to eat a box of self-bought chocolates alone and watch a movie too if it is the case I’m unattached one year.  So I guess you are wondering why I bring this all up then? Well, my newest story coming soon from NNP is about a woman who is a bit anti-Valentine’s Day to begin with, and for good reason. Yet the night she gets from a n—strings attached relationship is hot and kinky anyway. And, hey, wait for it, you just may be in for an HEA after all! *winks*

Check it out!

Seeing Red, a Valentine’s Day Novella, coming Feb 2012 from Naughty Nights Press


Rage on the Water is Shannon Murphy’s bar on the West Bank of Cleveland, Ohio in the district long called The Flats. While the building has changed hands many times in her family, Shannon has owned and operated her bar for the last three years. These are the facts that people know about her. What most people are not aware of is what really goes on in her apartment above Rage on the Water.

Three years ago when she opened the bar, her boyfriend at the time, a guy she thought she would spend the rest of her life with, dumped her that year on Valentine’s Day. Never a big fan after of the holiday before, she now loathes it. Having gone through a bit of a wild phase these past years, she’s given up dating altogether. Instead, she’s been exploring her wilder side, one where her kinks and more wanton interests prevail, in her apartment above the bar with a guy friend and at times others he invites in. Enjoying the role playing, she has a closet half-full of adult lingerie and costumes including all the sex toys and other accessories you can think of.

This year on Valentine’s Day though, a conversation with her long time guy friend, Mark, lands her in a situation beyond any she has experienced before. There will be two men and two women for her to play dominatrix with. While ignoring Mark’s changing intentions toward her, like his invitations to go on an actual date, it being Valentine’s Day, she’s more than a bit excited to spank a few asses.

Tonight Shannon, staring as Ms. Shan, has four bodies to play with. Only, Mark’ss looks are unnerving her. She goes with each whim of her body and mind, but will they expose her? Will she be able to still play her role well? Or, will she give in to all that scares her? With bodies exposed, asses red, it’s truly her heart on the line…
