Each year on February 14th, people exchange cards, candy, gifts or flowers with their special someone. The day of romance we call Valentine’s Day is named for a Christian martyr and dates back to the 5th century, but has origins in the Roman holiday Lupercalia.
No matter the origin of Valentine’s Day, it is nice to have a day devoted to love. In the spirit of Amor, I will share an excerpt from Shadow of Life.
“Words cannot describe how I feel,” Nadira murmurs.
“Then don’t use them,” Gregor smiles.
She rises on her elbow to see his face. Their minds interweave and whisper their souls’ secrets, their hearts’ treasures communicated without speech because words are inadequate. A shared kiss becomes the stamp that delivers their silent message.
They rest with their bodies intertwined in a sweet lassitude, listening to their hearts beat in unison. One flesh—together at last.
So, kiss someone special to you and enjoy your Valentine’s Day!
