Valentine’s Day kisses and a contest!

Look what I have to share for Valentine’s Day, courtesy of the talented Lex Chase. That’s right–it’s Nevin and Colin from Love Is Heartless, caught in a romantic moment. Nevin would undoubtedly swear a lot if he knew we were looking.

I think Valentine’s Day is the perfect opportunity for poetry. And that means it’s time for a contest.

  1. Really nice drawing ! <3
    Let's try a haiku with Carter and John from Astounding!

    Their souls interlaced
    Sparking under the moonlight
    Hearts in unisson

  2. They were enemies.
    Betrayed – they come together;
    Love will always win.

    – my Haiku is for Damen and Laurent from a series I recently read which is the Captive Prince Trilogy by CS. Pacat. 🙂

  3. Lovers oh star crossed
    Oh two lives so filled with love
    Two lives filled with death

    Not technically a romance but a haiku for Romeo & Juliet.

  4. the man who suffers
    a life looking from outside
    finds a joyous love

    This is how I imagine Dex & Sloane from Charlie Cochet’s THIRDS!

      1. Yay! That’s awesome! I’m happy my poems were appreciated! 😉
        My email is OceanAkers @ and my book choice is Running Blind (the only book of yours I don’t have!)
        Thanks for holding the contest!

  5. A man of giants
    Without greed malice or fear
    Finds love to protect

    An ode to my favorite of your couples, Brute & Grey!
