A magical Valentine’s Day
By Lilith Templeton

Hey everyone, it’s me again. Lilith, your not so evil neighborhood succubus. Brindle asked me to talk to you again, but this time about Valentine’s Day. Isn’t that a hoot, asking a demon to talk to a day dedicated in the memory of a holy saint? Well, aside that irony, Brindle felt I was once more, uniquely qualified. Love is still something I’m trying to understand, but I like it. I like it a lot. However, romance is something I not only know well, but also thrive upon.

First things first, skip the box of chocolates, the teddy bears, the cheesy ‘I love you’ cards and the flowers. We’ve all gotten that before. In fact, the capitalist machine has brain washed our guys into thinking that’s romance. It’s not even close.

If he gives you a diamond tennis bracelet however, be sure to ‘reward’ him. Keep it; you have my permission. But here’s what I suggest for your day of love.

Ok, now that we’ve eliminated the mainstays, the usual, the commonplace and the expected, you’re probably wondering how in the world will your guy, or gal as the case might be, get the right idea? Well, he or she won’t. Let me explain.

Somewhere along the line we got it in our heads that Valentines day is for us to give our guys a card and them to give us flowers. Romance? Not even. But the greeting card industry, florists and candy makers will love you. Where it is written the man has to initiate the romance and if he does, are we really surprised it comes only as a card and candy plus flowers? Why waste another Valentine’s Day receiving the same old boring gifts? Why not take the initiative to make it a night to remember?

Instead, here are some inexpensive, if not relatively free, ideas to inspire you.

Late night picnic: Bag a dinner made for two and visit a park and dine by candlelight. Be sure to bring blankets, you know, just in case. *giggle* Also, be sure you pick a safe park and one that doesn’t have curfew rules. If that sounds nice, but isn’t very viable, try your backyard or patio instead.

Trail of crumbs: But instead of crumbs, make them rose petals, or any flower will do. Leave a trail of them across the floor from where he will come home, to the bedroom. You get the idea and so will he/she!

Movie Night: Instead of watching your expected Valentine’s Day staples, try something that will get him going. Charge that testosterone up and play something like Sin City, 300 or Troy. (psst: plenty of man candy in those for you too!). Watch something that will get his blood going and he will WANT to watch. Make the movie about him and he’ll make the rest of the night about you! If you two are used to more graphic movies, I suggest Zalman King’s Two Moon Junction, Wild Orchid or 9 ½ Weeks. *waggles eyebrows*

Those are just the basics. Think outside the box of candy! Your imagination is your ally here. You don’t have to spend a lot of money, and by taking the initiative, you’ll assure your night won’t be another boring Valentine’s Day. If all goes well, maybe it will inspire him to be the aggressor next year and the days of boring candy and flowers will be bygones.

Good luck and watch for Brindle’s forthcoming release, a super sweet contemporary erotic romance, Trading Up, due out March 25th from Breathless Press.

And now about the man who tells Lilith's story:

The world is a lonely place without romance. It took me too many years to figure that out, but now that I have, I hope to infect others with its splendor. I’ve always loved the paranormal -- vampires, demons, angels, were-creatures and more. I also love a spicy tale and writing stories that are both has been the greatest adventure -- beyond parenthood and marriage -- that I have ever embarked upon. Sharing it with you makes it all the greater.

Gothic City Lights
It was just a fling. Lilith Templeton had no clue he was a human agent working for the angels. No big deal, but she got caught and Mother Superior, Portland’s most powerful angel, wants penance. Or death, Lilith’s choice. Being a lowly half-demon and therefore not a participant in the never-ending war for souls, she knows it's insane to cross the full-blood demons like Mother Superior wants. But opting out isn't an option: do or die. For additional penance, she's paired with an angel who not only ignites her lust but something more. Lilith wants to fall in love, to know what it was like to share herself with just one man. Yet since succubi needed to stay sexually satisfied, falling in love with the angel of chastity is a mistake she can’t afford.

Gabriel would have never second-guessed his choice to ascend through the virtue of chastity. Until he meets Lilith. Now, his ascension would be forfeit if he cannot vanquish his need for her. Having no choice but to ignore the fire burning inside them, they work towards tempting the demon cult’s human leader into revealing the hideout. Lilith, sexually irresistible half-succubus, is the perfect bait. Get in, send the signal and wait for the angel to rescue her. Oh and not get killed, or tempt the angel. Simple, right?
