My Kind of Love Scene (from a movie I watched)
Two pirate clad lovers (male and female) are exchanging marital vows aboard the ghost ship, the Dutchman while battling pirates that had been turned to fish people. As they speak words of love toward one another their swords are clanking against enemy swords and, blood is splashing and limbs go flying. During all this madness they become husband and wife. In the end, the male lover’s heart is cut out of his dead body, giving him life once more as the new Dutchman, and he hands his physical heart in a small treasure chest to his female lover to keep safe, for only destroying his heart will kill him “permanently”. Oh, my. I could see the grin on both the actors faces. I mean, really. He hands her his heart.
This is my kind of love scene. How romantic can it get! And darkly humorous to boot!
Yes, I’m a fantasy girl—a science fiction girl—and a horror girl with romance, mystery, and thrills thrown in for just plain fun. I’ve this thing for all things paranormal. Give me a vampire. Give me a werewolf. Give me magic and other worldly creatures, and I’m a happy camper. That’s my kind of world. And it is what I mostly write about. Now, there are two short stories I wrote that I had Romance on my mind when I wrote them. Wicked Tale—Sasha encounters a gargoyle for her troubles. And The Date—Jiffy experiences the date from hell when she discovers his name is Vlad and he believes himself to be a vampire.
My latest novel,Vintage Blood & The Sacred Scepters, is set in a magical world where werecreatures, vampires, enchantresses, warlocks, and humans co-exist. Brit Chambers, a gutsy Werecreature Consultant, has taken on the job of discovering the means by which to destroy the Sacred Scepters before a werecreature assassin finds them and uses them to rid the world of magic. But she has another problem to rid herself of as well—she has become Lord Daison’s (Vampire) personal blood bank thanks to her best friend, a weretiger. I am in the process of writing the second novel to the werecreature series. I’ve decided to bring my sweet little parrot into the story, a Sun Conure that has the ability to transform into a Dragon. I’ve also decided to bring in another Sun Conure to assist Lord Daison (Vampire) in winning Brit’s heart. Not her physical heart, mind you. But her love. And he needs as much help as he can get.
Now that I’ve finished talking about my novels, short stories, and my favorite kind of love scene, you may be interested in, well, about the romance in my life. I had suggested to my husband of 21 years he dress up as a werewolf, but “no, no, no”. He did not like the idea. But he is Scottish, and looks great in a “Kilt”. Great legs! Great backside! Oh, yes. He has the entire outfit! If only he’d pierce his ear.

Thanks for the awesome post, it helped me out a lot.
LeeAnn, yes Johnny Depp was fabulous! And I agree with you all, there is nothing like a swashbuckling heros. And Kathleen, men in kilts are something else. Went to scottish festival over weekend and there were plenty of men in kilts.:) Pam, thank you. I was happy to hear of a 4th Johnny/Pirate film. I’ll be watching it.
I am with you ladies :)! I really liked your post AB. Totally cool of your husband btw, lucky you ;).
Thanks so much for sharing abit about your work I will check it out.
Just for the record they are making a Pirates/Johnny part 4 — whooohoo!
I have to agree with LeeAnn at the end of the Pirates movies.. Pirates have always been a fantasy of mine.. I loved reading about those swashbuckling heros… But men in kilts… be still my heart… Lucky girll…
I have to say I was surprised by the way they ended the trilogy for Pirate but Johnny Depp was fabulous as usual.
I’m sure if you were on your hubby just a little bit he’d eventually cave and get his ear pierced.
