20 Ways to Say I Love You by Sha Renée

Valentine’s Day is here, which means many of us are thinking about love, romance and the best way to say those three special words to those who mean the most to us. Of course, it’s a good idea to tell our loved ones how we feel not just on Valentine’s Day, but on any day throughout the year. And while an sparkly gift or elaborate display of fanciness is sometimes nice to receive, let’s not forget that there are several inexpensive or free ways to show someone we care.
Here are twenty ways to say I love you s– not just for your significant other; don’t forget your friends, family members, coworkers and more.

 

1 Put a note in your kid’s lunch box telling them how awesome they are.

2 Leave a sexy note on the steering wheel in your husband’s car.

3 Buy your teen’s favorite candy bar and leave it in the fridge with a sweet note.

4 Buy coffee for your boss.

5 Run a hot bubble bath for your mom and add lavender bath oil.

6 Stop by your sister’s house and prepare a meal for her family before heading home.

7 Take care of your friend’s kids so she can go to the nail salon.

8 Pick up your grandkids for a sleepover at your house, so your son or daughter can go out for date night.

9 Clear the snow from your dad’s car before he leaves for work.

10 Call or text your grandmother and tell her about your job, your boyfriend or a movie you watched.

11 Compliment a random stranger in the Target check-out line.

12 Offer to help someone at work or school.

13 Buy lunch for a homeless person.

14 Visit someone in a patient care facility and read to them or play a card game.

15 Print out a cool photo from your phone or download from the internet. Add text and create a card. Mail it to your brother… even if he lives in the same house with you.

16 Draw a picture with crayons and mail it to a small child… even if they live in the same house with you. They love getting mail.

17 If you’re teen or a pre-teen, hug your mom… for longer than two seconds.

18 Initiate spontaneous sex with your significant other.

19 Post a review for an author whose book you enjoyed reading.

20 Watch this video and then kiss her like this. (note: this is a racy video!)

Let’s meet Melissa Crandall from Naval Maneuvers, an erotic romance, by Dee S Knight. Welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about the story your author wrote.

Naval Maneuvers by Dee S Knight

Genre Erotic romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Men and women of the armed forces experience desire and love pretty much like everyone else. Except, well, there is that uniform. And the hard-to-resist attraction of “duty, honor, service” as a man might apply them to a woman’s pleasure. All things considered, romance among the military is a pretty sexy, compelling force for which you’d better be armed, whether weighing anchor and moving forward into desire, dropping anchor and staying put for passion, or setting a course for renewed love with anchor home.

Introducing Melissa Crandall

Please tell me about yourself.
Age: 33
Gender: Female
Birthplace: Jacksonville, NC
Profession: Doctor
Ethnicity: Caucasian
What do you look like?
I’m maybe a little more curvy than fashion dictates. I have auburn hair, shoulder-length and deep green eyes, and I’m relatively tall—around five eight or nine.
Who is the significant other in your life?
I recently met David Stimson and fell hard and fast, despite my usual deliberative personality.
How do you dress?
I like the classic styles—trouser pants with pleats and a belt when going out casually and soft, collared blouses. I have three distinct little black dresses and almost always wear dresses or skirts when going out for an evening. I enjoy heels because they make me feel feminine (and yes, sexy!) but am just as comfortable in flats. Clothing must be comfortable and I tend towards the flowing, draping types of materials of very good quality.
Please tell us about your education.
I attended undergraduate school at Georgetown but went to University of Virginia for medical school. I also practice here in Charlottesville.
Do you get by, live comfortably, live extravagantly?
I live comfortably but I am not extravagant. I enjoy good clothes and I like attending lectures and seminars on topics like archaeology and history (a must if you live in Virginia!). I own my house, but it’s modest, and though I have a mid-priced car, I usually bicycle to work.
On what special skills do you rely?
My attention to detail, empathy for my patients, and a quick memory. I use these things to give my patients the best care.
Are any of your skills a source of pride or embarrassment, and if so, which ones and why?
Definitely pride. I truly like people and see it as my duty to serve them the best I can.
What is your family like?
I love my parents very much though I’m closer to my mom then my dad. He was a “lifer” in the Marine Corps, often away while I was growing up. I hated that he loved his job more than Mom or me because it seemed he was always away when we needed him most or wanted him there, like for recitals and plays. I saw my mom as a tower of strength because she held us together when I would have given up. Only recently have I realized how much my dad loved me, too. In fact, since I fell in love with David and then gave him up, I’ve learned a great deal about life, love, and being an adult—and all from my parents.

Know the Heroine from Dropping Anchor in Naval Maneuvers by Dee S Knight @DeeSKnight #RLFblog #miitary #romanceDee S Knight, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! We’re excited to find out more about your heroine, but first, tell us about the book.

Naval Maneuvers by Dee S Knight

Genre erotic romance

Know the Heroine from Dropping Anchor in Naval Maneuvers
Here are some fun questions to help us know your heroine.
It’s late, she’s bored. What does she do?
Plays MENSA games on her phone. The girl is gorgeous, but she’s no dummy.
What kind of food would she impulse buy if hungry?
Carie isn’t much of a junk food girl. She’d pick up an apple and skip the chocolate.
Describe the kind of clothes she prefers to wear.
A uniform when working—she’s a JAG officer—and loose fitting casual clothes when she’s relaxing. Of course, nothing is best when she’s with her sweetie, Todd Baxter.
Does she know how to fix things?
She knows how to fix coffee, and she knows how to make reservations. Anything else, she hopes she marries well.
She tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.
She tried to surprise Todd by dropping in on him without notice. She was the one surprised, and not in a happy way.
How does she act around children she doesn’t know?
Carie is not a child person. She keeps her distance when around children she doesn’t know. But since falling in love with Todd, she can finally see children in her future.
What is she like first thing in the morning?
So ready for action if Todd wakes her up. Otherwise, she’s one of those people who annoyingly wakes up with a sunny attitude and keeps it all day. That doesn’t mean that she doesn’t turn into a shark when she’s handling a trial. The only thing she likes better than being with Todd is winning her cases.
Can she use chopsticks?
She can but wonders why she should. It was fun when she was going out with college pals, but now, what’s the point? Food takes just as good using a fork.
Does she drink coffee? If so, how does she take it? If not, what does she drink instead?
Coffee? You mean life’s blood? Yes!! She drinks it often and she drinks it Navy strong!
What apps would she have on her phone?
The aforementioned MENSA games, Kindle, the Weather app, Google and Google maps, and email so she can stay in touch with the office. Carie prefers to interact with people rather than her phone, so she really only uses it when she has to or there is absolutely nothing else to do.
Android or iPhone?
iPhone
Earrings or unpierced ears?
Earrings, even though while in uniform they have to be posts and demure.
Tattoos or unadorned skin?
She has an intriguing tattoo of a dragon on her lower back, the result of a game she played in college. Todd is especially interested in finding out about her dragon.
Personal vehicle or public transport?
She doesn’t mind public transportation but usually her job requires her to be flexible in getting around so she drives herself.
Recycle or toss?
Definitely recycle. She’s responsible and civic-minded.
Thanks for helping us get to know your heroine!
