A Kiss from Sebastian St. Croix – National Kissing Day Book Fair

“He leaned in and brushed his mouth across hers. Those artfully sculpted lips were touching her. She accepted the caress, her body both rigid and boneless at the same time.

He pulled away, and the loss was painful. She needed more.

“We need to leave, minou. You’ll be hearing from me.” When she didn’t move, he stepped beside her, placed his palm firmly on her bottom, and scooted her forward. “À la prochaine.””

Oh no he did not! Her first kiss from Sebastian St. Croix and he leaves her hanging. Evil man! You’ll have to read It Takes a Cat Burglar to discover his skills in bed are worth the build up.

In honor of National Kissing Day today June 23rd and International Kissing Day July 6th I’m participating in the National Kissing Day Book Fair. Of course there are terrific prizes to win, but you’ll also be introduced to some fabulous authors with the opportunity to check out and buy one of their books.

If you haven’t purchased It Takes a Cat Burglar, now is a great time to do so or add it to your Goodreads To Be Read list. KU readers can read it for free.

Iconic Evening Dresses – Fashion Maven A to Z

It’s the day for letter V, and once again a decision must be made. Should I choose Valentino? Or one of several Versace? Don’t forget Diane Von Furstenburg. And then it came to your Fashion Maven, iconic evening dresses.

How much fun can it be to wear the dress of your life from a big name designer to the Academy Awards? So Valentino and Versace it is.

Many of the gowns found on iconic dress lists were designed by Valentino and Versace. A measure of the fame these dresses have attained is due the star who wore them, but considering the awful dresses some of the élite of film choose to wear, the star doesn’t make the dress. The dress must first be amazing.

Several of the dresses below would not appear on your fashion maven’s list of iconic dresses, but, having been limited to the two couture design houses, she was hesitant to eliminate any. She will point to her three favorites: Cate Blanchette in the yellow Valentino, Elizabeth Hurley in the black with safety pins Versace, and Penelope Cruz in the blush, feathered Versace. The feathery ruffles are only part of what makes that gown a work of art. The sculptured bodice is exquisite. The fashion maven would love to know your favorites. Please share in the comments.

First Valentino:

And now Versace:

For those who do not know who the Fashion Maven speaks of when she mentions the revered name of Selina Shirley. She is the latest bright star at the House of Shirley established long ago, far in the future on the Federation planet, Tallav. Her love story has been published in Maon: Marshal of Tallav.
