I hope you've reached the right place, and I hope that you're over eighteen. This website is for adults only. No, I don't sell adult toys or videos or anything like that, this isn't a porn site. But it is the site of an erotic romance writer.


If you're looking for a steamy read, long, short or in between, where the characters are all over each other, get down and dirty, than I can guarantee that you will find something here. I'm going to level with you, my erotic romances are explicit and graphic in nature, but they all have happily forever or happily for now endings.


Enter at your own risk!

Wrapping Gifts

Does anyone do that anymore? Once gift bags came along everyone and anyone that received a gift from me got one. No more wrapping! No more cutting and sizing the paper, no more taping and making out gift cards. All you had to do was toss some pretty tissue in a pretty gift bag, toss the gift inside and there you have it. And the best part is you can reuse the gift bags. Those things are expensive!

Well...I just spent half an hour wrapping my granddaughter's birthday gifts. I hate wrapping gifts and do a terrible job. But my daughter informed me Alivia wanted to unwrap gifts on her birthday, none of that gift bag stuff. You should see her gifts. It looks like she wrapped them herself but what does it matter? She won't know the difference.

I asked her what she wanted for her birthday and she said presents...pink ones:)

Speaking of my granddaughter, she said her first cuss word the other day. She over heard her daddy say something when he was pulling out the barbecue grill and a lizard startled him. Later she told her mom that a damn lizard scared her daddy. LOL

I try to wrap presents for the younger kids because they love unwrapping. I go cheap and use comics though. Plus now that my own kids are older, I make them wrap.

I started cheating in the last year. I went to Wal-Mart after Christmas and Valentine's Day and bought a bunch of bags on sale. The Valentines ones just look girly but can be used for a girls birthday.

yes, I still wrap the old fashioned way, seems so much more personal that way plus that is the way I learned to do it. Do occasionally use a gift bag if package is hard to wrap. In regards to bad words when one has small or any children one must assume they have big ears even when they do not seem to be listening. I can talk till I am blue in face and they do not hear, but just let me quietly say something they should not hear and that is first thing they hear all day lol

You and me both, Sarabelle! Everyone made fun of my gift wrapping at the party:)

Hey, good idea Kytaira! Also, gift bags are durable and pretty enough to use over and over:)

Oh gosh, I'd forgotten all about that starryann, but you're so right! My daughter will figure it out soon enough. I think grown ups are the same way at times, too:)
