Meet a cowboy, an FBI agent, A Highland Laird, a real estate developer and a vampire all by the name of Valentino.

I’ve read these replies. Some of these guy wouldn’t know romance if they had to spell the word with Alphabet Soup. Please heroines of these Valentino stories, kick these boys in their toys!


Define Romance:

Oh for God’s sake. *shakes head* How did I end up in this situation? Fine. You want to know what Romance is? It’s…well…it’s…I…You know, I don’t have to answer that. What’s the next question?

Describe your idea of the perfect relationship:

*furrows brows* What kind of interview is this? Oh, I get it. You think that since my last name is Valentino I must be some Romeo. Yeah, well, I’m not. I’m a member of The Vampire Guard. We’re fierce warriors, not pansies. What’s the next question?

When a woman is with a man, what should he be thinking about?

About her, obviously. What do think he’s gonna think about? Let’s move on.

When a man is with a woman, what should she be thinking about?

Really? Him. That’s what she should think about. Who wrote these questions? A woman, right? Had to be. A man would not have asked these questions.

Have you ever broken a heart so badly that you felt you may be the bad man?

*sighs* I could really use a drink right about now. I have been around a long time. A very long time. Hearts get broken. I don’t want to use my vampire powers too often. You know, I don’t want to blur memories, but sometimes that’s what has to be done to keep things okay.

Would you rather with a good girl or a bad girl?

*sits back* Well, that all depends on how you define good and bad, now doesn’t it.

Define Sex:


Describe your idea of the perfect woman:

I’d just like to go back to that other question about breaking hearts. I’m not a bad man, at least not as it relates to women. I’ve done a few things but only to keep things on the up and up. Anyway, the perfect woman is smart and active and, for some damn reason she’s constantly around, poking her nose into things that could get her into trouble and she makes me worry and she’s gentle and kind and beautiful. What are we talking about here?

What is better a innocent smile or dirty mind?

*grins* A dirty mind wearing an innocent smile. *nods*

How should a real man kiss?

With his lips.

In what three words might a woman describe you when you are in bed?

*laughs out loud* Excuse me. Sorry. *laughs again* I think she’d be incapable of speech after spending a night in bed with me.

When you are making love to a woman, what are you thinking?

Are you kidding me? Certain things a man does not divulge. This is one of them.

What is your wildest dream involving a woman?

*deep inhale* I guess that would involve settling down, trusting her enough to let her know who I really am.

Define Love:

*looking down at his hands* I suppose love and romance bring you to the perfect relationship. They involve supreme trust and knowing secrets that no one else knows, but still remaining together. Caring so much it hurts and being able to think of no one else. Man, do I need a drink.

Valentino’s Stories:

The Matron by Kirsten Osbourne:
Since being widowed, Cassie Morgan had devoted her life to the orphans in the orphanage she’d managed. When a new church took over the orphanage and decided to turn it into a boys’ home, she was both frightened and unsure about how she would make things work for the girls. Being told she had to take fifteen young ladies all the way to Texas from New York didn’t make her feel better.

Valentino Hayes had spend his entire adult life searching for the younger brother he vaguely remembered. Just after finding a lead that would send him to Fort Worth, he was offered the job of driving a bus full of orphans to Texas. He jumped at the chance, knowing he needed to not only find his brother, but work while he was searching. He didn’t plan on Mrs. Morgan’s love for the children to turn his head. Could he convince her to travel with him? And how was he going to provide for a wife while he was still searching for his brother?

Undercovers by Jamie Lee Scott:
When FBI agent Valentino “Vin” Jackson’s undercover sting operation goes bad, he teams up with Special Agent Ellis Boyd of the DEA, who has some special talents of her own, to take down a drug ring working for the Mexican cartels.

The Brute and the Blogger by Olivia Gaines:
Tino Boehner was up to his ears with Ebony Miller’s pot shots at him on her blog. Just as he was trying to figure out how to turn the tables, fate dumped her in his lap. Seizing the opportunity, he made her an offer she couldn’t refuse; come work by his side for a month.

A month can be a lifetime, or just enough time to make a man want to change his brutish ways.

Highlander, The Archer by Hildie McQueen: 
Valent made an oath to protect the McLeod clan after they rescued him as a foundling. However, after years of mistreatments at the Lairds hands, he questions his obligation to uphold his promise.

When a rival clan attacks and kills her brothers, Ariana McLeod’s world is turned upside down. That she’s fallen in love with the handsome archer, Valent, is a complication and a blessing at once. Amidst battles, revelations and treachery, is it possible to expect their love to triumph?

A Vampire’s Penance by Jordan K. Rose:
The chain of events set in motion when Rafe Valentino tries to stop his brother from making the stupidest decision of his life borders on deadly. Rafe goes from being one of the most terrifying creatures to walk the earth to requiring around the clock nursing care. As if being physically injured wasn’t enough, the senior member of The Vampire Guard has no choice but to reveal the heinous secret of his past in order to protect nurse Maddie Van Kool from throwing away her life on him.
