Love tore me up inside,
How it lied and broke my heart.
Then I met him and he smiled,
He said hi and made me sigh.

Something was different,
Love has been gone so long.
He asked me, “If I could be his?”
Of course, “I said yes!”

He hugged me and warmed my heart,
He kissed me and it lingered on my lips.
I’m his special girl and he is my love,
We are all one of a kind now!

Our Dream Dance

Dedicated to JD

Missing your arms and touch tonight,
Our song floods my ears and entices my mind.
I close my eyes and picture a time when,
We had it all, because we had each other.

I never thought I would be feeling so alone without you,
Dancing together in my dreams and kissing your sweet lips.
Your love changed me in ways that you will never know,
Do you remember the way we met and the nights we shared?

I never felt so in love with a person before I met you,
Remind me of the way, we lost ourselves in each other.
I need you now to just smile and say something clever,
However, you are a dream now that I meet each night.

We were so close to finally having what we want,
Being in love with you took my breath away.
I gave you my heart so many years ago,
I force a smile when my heart is shattering.

How do I reach out to a memory that has faded?
Do I ever enter your thoughts and your mind?
The pain shows me that you were mine once,
My heart hasn’t healed and there is nothing I can do.

Praying and crying won’t bring you back to me,
It has been so long, since we ignited that everlasting fire.
All the feelings we felt and the nights we spent together.
Came to an abrupt end and that is what truly hurts the most.

My First Kiss

Tonight I am in exotic bliss,

Since, I experienced my first kiss.

As you walked me to my door,

My lips begged for more.

As I say good night and climb in bed,

A full moon is shining overhead.

My heart is dancing with delight,

This will be a memorable night.

No one can change this magical day,

For you left me with so much to say.

My life will never be the same,

This first kiss will always remain.

Anniversary of a Dream

Missing the moments we spent,
Wondering where the time went.
Time has passed without a glance,
Sometimes, I wish I took that chance.

On our anniversary of the day we met,
I can’t help but wonder if I will ever forget.
The love we shared so long ago,
I wonder if you will ever know.
Never will I forget the dance we shared,
Nor will I ever believe you never cared.
Fate happened and tore us apart,
Yet, your love remains locked in my heart.

We will meet as we did once before,
I will hold you in my dreams forever more.
Years have passed and time has sped by,
However, I will not let myself cry.
I will meet you once again in my dreams,
Where not everything is as it seems.
The secret garden I built back then,
I will always open up to let you in.

Introducing a Hot and Steamy New Book….”Chat Rooms and Chat Lines!”


Chat Rooms and Chat Lines

This story is hot. It is funny. It is serious…..and it is real! (For readers 18 and older only.)

Author Divine Ortiz’s book titled, “Chatrooms & Chatlines” is a book that is sexy, humorous, yet sensual all at the same time. This book is a wonderful read for adults only!

This book is more descriptive and detailed than most romance genre books that you may be used too. However, this book is for readers who like romance, humor, and sensual writing.

Additionally, it is for readers who love steamy moments and erotic bliss throughout the entire book.

This talented author did an amazing job with showing the story, instead of telling it. He was able to create images in your mind, but he left room for you to let your own imagination run wild as well. This book is not to be considered a romance novel, because it reminded me of a popular book which I read recently named, “Fifty Shades of Grey” by E.L. James. So, with that said, read at your own risk, yet I believe you will enjoy the book as much as I did.

I loved the book because you get to follow the main character as he tries to develop relationships along the way, but not all of his dates or hook-ups goes as planned. Check out his book on Amazon Kindle.

(DISCLAIMER-This book for 18 years and older only, due to the sexual language and R-rated discussions found all throughout the book.)

The Author’s Snippet

“You have a message from……BEEEEEP!” Do you remember when the internet chat rooms were the place to be? The virtual world of internet dating chat rooms was where many went to get their freak on. Some chose the more direct route that was offered in the many by-the-minute phone chat lines that were advertised on BET after midnight, or on the back pages of the XXL magazine.”

If you can remember those days, then you can surely relate to this story. Divine is new to Atlanta, and even though he doesn’t know anyone, he knows from experience that the quickest way to meet women in any state is to jump in a chat room or to dial into a chat line. Travel with Divine as jumps in and out of chat rooms & chat lines……and relationships.

This story is hot. It is funny. It is serious…..and it is real!

Ratha: The Magic Within (The Guardian Archives)


Ratha is a companion to Keltor.

Ratha: The Magic Within is a companion novelette to Keltor. This new book in the Guardian Series is due out real soon.

Author Jennifer Sage offered to allow member’s of her newsletter’s to read Ratha’s story. I could not put this story down. I waited for the new email’s and greedily read each portion like she was spoon feeding my addiction to the world’s and character’s that she has created in this magical realm. You will fall in love with this book and the book Keltor, which is the first of the Guardian Archive series.

Check it out for yourself. Keltor’s e-book is now .99 cent and her website is http://jennifersage.com.

Feel free to look around and check out her other books. Jennifer is a top best seller author in my heart and mind. She build’s worlds that will amaze you, yet allow you to build the world in your imagination as well. Oh..She is currently writing the third book in this series…Dante!

However their is more to come is this magical yet mystical series. Ratha will be out soon, but you must read Keltor first. The book is a steal at 99 cents!

Here is a Snippet for her website about Ratha: The Magic Within

The Guardian Archives Novellete

What began as a simple undertaking of a companion novel to “Keltor-The Guardian Archives” has turned into an epic adventure.

This work is a companion novel to “Keltor-The Guardian Archives” and will be considered book 1.5 in this series even though it’s nearly a full length novel.

In Keltor, we know very little about the powerful sorceress named Ratha of Westmeath. She is a 1200 year old mortal who just so happens to be one of the most powerful sorceresses to ever walk the earth and her part in Keltor is so small but her connection to the main characters is so large. We have no idea where she was 1200 years ago or what brought her to the cave in Ireland where we meet her for the first and only time in Keltor.

Who was Logan’s father? How did Ratha of Westmeath stay alive for so long in her mortal shell and why was she concealed from the Guardians? What was her path and who was the lover that she remained faithful to through all of the centuries? Who was RATHA? We find out all of this as well as where we are heading in Dante. This is an erotic tale of love that defied the worlds and universal laws in general. Don’t miss this journey packed with sizzling heat and revelations of epic proportions.

It’s one hell of a ride into the Immortal World.
