SWEET THINGS HEROES DO
I only recently began celebrating Valentine’s Day with my husband after almost thirty tries. Most years he’s traveling for his job. He’ll be the first one to admit that he has to be reminded not to wait until the last minute to make plans. I learned very quickly in our relationship to appreciate the little things he did–when he did them. One surprise gift was a hand cut heart for my office with our initials that I’ll always treasure.
My Intrigue heroes have a difficult time doing special things for their heroines, too. Mainly because they’re normally on the run for their lives. But there are a few times I may have gotten their actions just right.
This is from Therese S.:
Brandie to Mitch in THE RANGER (West Texas Watchmen #3)
“I love you.” She closed her eyes and leaned her head on his shoulder. “Not just for everything you’ve done in the past couple of days. It happened months ago. After one of those long, protective looks you gave me standing in the doorway of the garage.”
This is from Linda B.:
Cord to his ex-wife Kate after they’ve just had to fight off and kill some of the guys sent to kill them in PROTECTING THEIR CHILD:
“Thing is, babe…” He took a knee next to the chair so he could see her downcast eyes. “I wouldn’t hesitate to protect you again. Not a second. Let another bastard try.”
swoon They’ve been broken up for months, they’re already divorced…and yet he’d still do anything to keep her safe.
This is from Brenda R.:
One of my favorites is when Jake rescues Bree’s handicapped pup and keeps Dallas for her in THE MARINE’S LAST DEFENSE:
“Kyle Wilder sent my pup, Dallas, with an officer when we landed at the airport. She could be at the pound for all I know. And that’s not going to happen. I’ll make my statement when you find my dog.”
I hope you can celebrate Valentine’s Day each time your significant other does something special for you.

Thanks so much for hosting me today. Good luck in the contest everyone.
My apologies to Lynn B. who sent her favorite moment. Not sure how your name was changed (my copy) to Linda. Super Sorry about that.
No worries, I’ll answer to anything! 🙂
Love the heart! Sometimes the little things are the best ever.
Lynn, you’re so right! This little heart was a complete surprise and so dear to me.
Can’t wait to read her new book it sounds so good!! All her books are phenomenal reads.
Therese, it’s fans like you that keep me writing.
Angi writes the best Intrigues. With just the right amount of romance, danger, and that puss-pull between the characters, her stories keep you glued to the pages. Her books are always on my “must read” list.
Thank you, Brenda. You were my first non-family member fan !! Love you for that.
Angi, you’re so right that the little things mean the most. I am a sucker for cards (I know, i know–lining Hallmark’s pockets). But I love it when I have a surprise card waiting for me on my computer, or in the car taped to the steering wheel, or on my pillow. It takes at least a certain amount of thought and effort to go to a store, stand in front of the cards and choose one. Hubby is very good at that. I wish you a super happy Valentine’s Day with your cutie pie guy! And best of luck with Bulletproof Badge!
Awe…you should write that in a book, my friend !
Happy Valentine’s Day to you too!
Angi, like your husband, mine usually wants a reminder about a special day or event, or a hint of something I’d like. What I love are the unexpected gifts. My introduction to romance came at the age of ten–my uncle gave me the book Pride and Prejudice. I’ve now read every book Jane Austen ever wrote (and read them many times over.) My husband bought me a dozen red roses and tied a romantic quote from a Jane Austen novel on each stem. I still have the quotes and their ribbons in a crystal bowl. Best gift ever. I’m sure you feel the same about your heart. Hope this Valentine’s Day is a winner and I look forward to reading Bulletproof Badge!
That is a beautiful story, Fenley !
(SHOUTING “come read this” to my husband…giving him ideas!)
The little things add up and if they arrive when you least expect it they can feel very big. Love the heart your hubby carved for you, Angi!
You’re totally right, Jacqui. I still save my pennies. Thanks for keeping me company.
Love Angi’s books. Just finished The Sheriff and loved it
Thank you, Tammy! I hope you enjoy the rest of the West Texas Watchmen.
Thanks for featuring Angi for the tour!
