I have to confess… Valentine’s Day is just another day for me and Mr. Book Reviews & More by Kathy. I know, I know, that makes us sound like the most unromantic couple on the face of the earth, doesn’t it? Now y’all know I love romance, otherwise I would not read and review so many romance novels ;-), but we all know that real life and romance novels are vastly… different.
How did Valentine’s Day lose its romantic glow for me and Mr. Book Reviews & More by Kathy? Necessity. Mr. Book Reviews & More by Kathy is in the Air Force and he spends a lot of time deployed. We have not spent a Valentine’s Day together since 2008, and we won’t be together this year either :(. Now we do exchange Valentine’s Day cards (well, except last year but there were extenuating circumstances). No flowers, no special romantic dinners, no gifts, no extra pressure to have sex just because it’s VALENTINE’S DAY!
We do not need a special day to celebrate our love. Instead, we appreciate the little day to day gestures that express our love for one another. Mr. Book Reviews & More by Kathy surprises me with a bouquet of flowers out of the blue. We sneak away on romantic getaways every once in a while. We celebrate our love every day, not just on February 14th.
Now it’s your turn. Do you celebrate Valentine’s Day?

After a brush with death, he begins to live…
After a mugging and near death experience, Leo Gorgan realizes the only thing he has in New York City is business contacts. He decides to take a year off and travel the country. When a needed repair on his motorhome lands him in Destiny, Iowa, Leo has no idea the ruggedly handsome man at the hardware store will be able to fix more than his leaky faucet.
William “Tank” Borsoiv loves his life. The farm he owns is enough to feed his soul, but not enough to make ends meet. Working at the hardware store has always bridged the gap financially, but it also allows Tank to interact with the townspeople. When a stranger with dark red hair enters the store, Tank’s body takes notice.
Tank knows Leo has a life in New York he’ll eventually go back to, but he won’t let that stop him from entering into the hottest relationship he’s ever experienced. Loving Leo may come with a price, but Tank will gladly pay the debt.

No strings attached sex with a hot smalltown cop? Yeah, her heart was in serious danger…
Toya is on the way to a funeral when she’s pulled over by the sexiest cop she’s ever laid eyes on. When she discovers she doesn’t have her wallet with her license in it, she decides it’s time to use her feminine charms to get out of being hauled off to jail. The super short skirt and the f*me high-heeled boots should do the trick, but this cop doesn’t seem impressed in the least.
Tripp is finding it hard to remain detached and professional while doing his job looking at the chocolate beauty he’s just pulled over. And when he discovers she’s driving without a license, procedure dictates he asks her to step out of the car. With a body he’d like to sample right there on the side of the road, this woman forces him to make her a proposition that has nothing to do with the law—no strings attached sex, all weekend long. But what will he do when it’s time for Toya to leave his small town and go back to New York?
