Is Your Marriage a Battleground? An Open #Letter to #Violent Husbands

The high rate of violence against married women has prompted this strongly-worded letter.

Dear Husband,
If your reaction at every provocation is to throw a punch in your wife's face, you need help. You know why? Because you are a weakling!

Beating up a woman you vowed to cherish and love ranks as the worst crime and it isn't a sign of strength, but a sign of weakness and cowardice.

Ask yourself, do you throw a punch at every man who annoys you in your office and on the street? If your answer is a no, you have to seek help today!

And please don't lecture me on how your wife is a nagging idiot or how she is abusive, or doesn't cook for you or disrespects you.

Listen to me, there's not a single reason good enough for you to abuse your position of authority as head of the home to inflict physical or emotional harm on your wife. Shame on you!

All hope isn't lost.

There are many actions you can take to manage your stubborn wife. So many steps, none of which involves  beating her up.

Take a moment to think!

1. You have got to check your actions. Do you do things that make your wife so mad, she insults you and you end up giving her a punch to shut her up?

2. Okay, here are a list of top annoying habits. Do any of them sound familiar?

3. You constantly come back home late. Many women won't put up with this for too long. Women want and need attention. Get back home!

4. You come up with every excuse in the book not to give money to run the home. Well...if you have financial troubles, don't keep it a secret. Share before she finds out.

5. You guard your mobile phone as if your life depends on it. Your action arouses her suspicion. And, once jealousy creeps in, you can no longer do anything right. Your home becomes a battlefield.

6. You don't help with house chores - cooking, taking care of the kids and running the home in general. Think about your wife doing the house chores, shopping, cooking, looking after the kids, going to work and you expect her to be ready and randy when you drop in at night? Is she superwoman? What planet are you on? Get real!

This doesn't apply if you have maids.

7. You don't spend weekends at home or your days off are so fully booked, your wife is now a decorative item in your home. Her birthdays are forgotten, anniversaries are not in your scheme of busy schedule, the kids birthdays are overrun by important meetings. HA! You are breeding a very discontent woman and soon, the cauldron is going to explode in your busy face!

8. Allowing family interference in your marriage is not only wrong, it will cause an explosion! You are the head of your home, not your mother, father, brothers or sisters. They need to get a life and leave you to work with your wife to create the home you both want. Are you still reading? If you are, there is  hope.
Enough!

Here are a few tips to help you win your wife;

1. If your wife starts her rant, give her full attention. She is telling you something...in the wrong way, but she is communicating, so LISTEN!

2. Breathe in and out, pick out the message (s) listed in her long rant. Acknowledge her annoyance. You have to AGREE she has a basis to be angry, if you want world PEACE.

3. In charming words, admit you HATE upsetting her. Even if you think she is over the top. Tell your wife she makes your heart beat so fast, you feel faint, or any compliment that drifts into your head. You've got to diffuse the tension. It takes two to fight.

4. Ask her what she wants you to do to make her HAPPY. She would probably collapse from shock. Buy her a gift.

5. Later on, talk about what ticked her off in plain terms. Give reasons why you come home late, or can't help with chores... Or save the chat till tomorrow when your wife is in a lighter mood.

6. Agree to take steps to make her happy. If you come home late everyday, you've got to cutback on whatever it is that keeps you outside your home.

Each quarrel with your wife gives you an opportunity to change things, to do things in a different way to make the other person happy. It is NOT an opportunity to hold on to grudges.

Remember, once you have had a fight over a specific issue, try not to repeat the same offence. Nothing is as damaging as broken trust.

If you feel pushed to the point you want to hit your wife, go for a WALK. You need a clear head. By the time you get back, the angry steam is gone.

After taking the steps above and your wife remains uncontrollable, report her to someone she holds in high esteem. Take this action only as a DESPERATE measure.

If you don't know how to pray, grab a bible and open to Matthew 7: 9 - 13.

God ordained marriage, I know if you call on Him to fix your marriage, He will.

Thank you for reading through this letter. You are a stronger man than you know.

I wish you the very best as you chart a new life of Peace, Love, Stability and Fun with your wife.

Thank you for stopping by. It would be sweet if you left comments, so I know you dropped in.

Have a fabulous weekend.

Love
Stella

#RomQuotesMonday39

Happy Monday!

On Romance Quotes Monday, I'm celebrating my 15th wedding anniversary. On December 4th 1999, I married the most gorgeous and loving man on earth. He proposed to me on our very first date!
Our 15yrs marriage road and bed have amazing memories for us and our two teenage children. 
To sweeten and deepen our love, my husband gave me a new engagement ring in Church yesterday, 7th  Dec. 
Wow!!! I felt like a brand new African Bride! 
Our priest blessed the ring. In front of our families and friends, my hubby slipped the most beautiful engagement ring on my fingers with the same words he used 15yrs ago.
The original engagement ring got damaged a couple of years ago.
I give God all the glory for our marriage, our love, families and friends.

These two romance quotes aptly describe our love.

Why I Love Reading & Writing Interracial/Multicultural Romance

This is my chance to share the real reasons I enjoy writing and reading interracial or multicultural romance novels.


In the first instance, getting any relationship off the ground is hard enough. Finding a pinch of romance in the unfolding maze is a long shot.

In truth, I find the idea of throwing two people together from completely different worlds - race, culture, experiences, expectations, exhilarating!

The backlash, prejudices and different lifestyles & background naturally adds to the tension. The evolving issues help develop the characters personalities and we see how they work through the conflicts.

Interracial romance has so much flair, flavour & spice.

For me, getting wrapped up with a hot mug of chocolate drink and spicy hot interracial novel is sheer bliss.

Oh, and travelling to exotic locations around Africa and other continents is simply fascinating.

Of course the tingling hot bodies of the heroes is a force to reckon with and the native nuance do it for me.

Please share why you enjoy reading interracial or multicultural romance.

Romance

Content Warning: Strong language, Mild

Blurb:

In this dramatic conclusion to Benjamin and Selina Moss's story they must deal
with lust and love, dark desires and danger.

His love possesses her. Will it protect her too?

Benjamin Moss has proven how much he cares about his wife, Selina. She pushed him to shred his iron control and bare his soul to her. In return he's earned her much
guarded heart as well as her body.
But her past has finally caught up with her and scores will have to be settled
before they can have a happy ending. Can Benjamin's love protect her from those
who seek to destroy both of them? Or will she finally lose the man who's
possessed her body as well as her heart

Teasers:







Excerpt

"I know Selina can be stubborn," Chris said after moments of silence while
the men drank. "But is she refusing to take the bracelet back?"

"No. She wants it. But I can't give it back to her until she knows everything about
my past. I can't trust that she won't throw it at me when she finds out what my
life was really like." Ben sighed, giving in briefly to the fear of what
it would do to his heart if she spurned him again.

"I don't blame you," Kenny said, sympathy lacing his words.

"Shit," Chris muttered under his breath.

His friends understood his predicament. They were dominant men. Although Chris wasn't in a committed relationship, he had dated Selina before Benjamin met her. Kenny on the other hand had been married once. Still, they both understood his need for Selina, his overwhelming desire to have her submission.

She was a beam of light shining on the darkness that had lived in his soul since he was a teenager. He loved her. Wanted to possess her like no one ever did.

As a man who made a living from protecting others, no one drew out his protective
instincts like Selina did. And he would make sure she was protected no matter
the cost to him. If it meant taking down Tony Kana, he would do it in a
heartbeat.

"I want to know everything Tony Kana does from now on. If he as much as sneezes, I
want to hear about it." Ben tossed the rest of his drink down his throat
as the need to be with his wife overwhelmed him. He stood and headed toward the
door.

"You've got it." Kenny nodded as he stood too.

"Thank you," Ben said before punching the button to call the elevator.  Chris stepped inside with him when the door opened.

"Why are you so bent on tracking this guy?" his best friend asked. "Is
there something I should know?"

Ben had asked Kenny, who had contacts in West Africa, to help him find Tony Kana but he'd never really explained to his friends why.

"Kana is Selina's ex-husband," he said in a matter of fact tone.


"And?" His friend understood him too well.

"He's the reason she has body issues."

"Body issues?" Chris's face puckered in a frown.

"When you dated her, did you ever get to see her full unclothed?"

His friend's dark brows drew together. "No. She always insisted on having
those corsets on. They were damn sexy so I never minded. Although once I walked
into the bathroom while she was in the shower and she nearly screamed the place
down because she wanted me to get out."

Benjamin closed his eyes and sucked in a breath to stave off his rising anger. "Her
abdomen is covered in scars. Someone cut her up pretty badly."

"Kana?" Chris growled the question.

"No." Ben opened his eyes and stared at his friend. He could see his anger reflected
in his friend's eyes. "But he might as well have wielded the knife
himself. He handed Selina over to the militia who wanted to use her as a sex
slave. She fought back and they mutilated her for disobedience."

"And all you want to do is watch this guy? I want to put a bullet right between his
eyes."

"Selina doesn't want any more bloodshed. I have to respect her wishes. Doesn't mean I can't take the guy down another way."


"Right." Chris nodded. "He has to pay."


"Oh, he's going to pay. No doubt about that."

They entered the bar and loud music erased the need for further conversation.

Book Showcase: Deception in Plain Sight by @boomer63 #NewRelease #Fiction

Welcome to Book Showcase.

A dear friend and International Author, Vivienne Diane Neal, is showcasing her hot new release, Deception in Plain Sight, a Crime Novel with a Twist.

Vivienne's novel sounds intriguing and has a definite edge to it.

Genre: Fiction

Enjoy a peep into Deception in Plain Sight.

Blurb:

A young woman, of wealth and privilege, believes she has met the man of her dreams, only to discover she has been living in a fool’s paradise?

The handsome, charming, and cunning stranger will not only awaken her sexual inhibitions but will draw her into his sinister plot, leaving her asking, “What type of monster did his parents create?”

Excerpt:

Christine finished her business in D.C. earlier than she had anticipated and returned home a week earlier. It was Friday evening when she walked into the house. She was ready to jump into Awesome’s arms and make love to him, but he was not home.

She went upstairs, unpacked, showered and got into her new sexy lingerie, which she purchased at an upscale boutique; she went straight to bed and waited for him.

Suddenly, the home phone rang. “You are in great danger,” the caller said.

“Who is this?” There was silence on the other end. Ten minutes later, the phone rang again. “Hello.”

“Awesome Petté is a deceitful person; he will break your heart.”

“Why do you keep calling?” There was a click. At first, Christine thought it was her mother but remembered she never gave her the home phone number.

Even if her mother knew where they lived and looked up the number in the telephone book or called directory assistance, it would be futile, because the number was unlisted.

It was probably a prankster, Christine thought.

The landline phone was old school; there was no way the caller’s number would show. There was no redial button, so Christine would never know who made that call.

It was after eight when Awesome arrived home. He went up to the bedroom and could not believe his eyes.

 “It’s good to see you. I thought you were coming home next week.”
Good thing I did not have a woman with me, he thought.

“My work with the client finished ahead of schedule. The company loved my presentation and did not see the need for me to stay any longer. Besides, I missed you; come to momma.”

This woman is going to be the death of me, he thought.

“I missed you too. Give me a couple of minutes to get myself together.” Knocking boots was the last thing on his mind. He took a shower and returned all dried.

“Oh, baby, you should have let the water run down on your searing body. It turns me on,” she purred.

“If you like, I can go back and shower my body with warm water and return dripping wet.”

“Stop it and do me as though we are participating in a lovemaking marathon.”

“Yes, your highness; now open wide.” He surged inside of her, releasing hot lava throughout her sensuous channel.

“Sweetie, you are outdoing yourself.”

“Thank you, ma’am, I am here to please you.” They stimulated each other for several hours until they both fell asleep.
