Are You a #Parent? What We Do Wrong & Right

Bringing up children isn't a walk in the park.

The teenage years are often the most turbulent for parents. Teenage pregnancy, weed smoking, drug use, knife use, alcohol fuelled parties, bullying and gansterism is rife among teenagers.



As many parents realize too late, the area they reside and the children's schools have a huge impact on the children's attitude, outlook and choice of friends.

All hope isn't lost. As parents, we have primary responsibility in preparing our children for life's many challenges.



WHAT PARENTS DO WRONG

You Can Over-function:

You do everything for your child, from making their beds, to washing their dishes and clothes and then expect the clueless child to grow up taking responsibility and contributing positively. They blame the pampered child for being lazy!

You Under-function:

You expect too much from a child you haven't trained. You frustrate them and make them feel incompetent.

WHAT PARENTS CAN DO RIGHT

Be A Role Model

With patience and love, 'apprentice' your children by demonstrating how to do whatever chores or skills you want them to learn. Show them how to vacuum, wipe windows, mop the floor, wash dishes, swim, fish, sing or dance.

I bought a bread maker a few weeks before Christmas 2013. I learnt to bake homemade bread. And I taught my eleven year old son and my thirteen year old daughter. They now bake bread unsupervised. We haven't bought a loaf of bread since I got the bread maker.

If you don't know how to...learn together. Children are great teachers!

Be the example you expect. If you're dependent on alcohol, get clean!!!

Deepen Bonds

As you work alongside your child,  you develop and deepen an enduring and precious bond with them.

Share Responsibility:

Teach your children to share the work load at home from a young age. Washing dishes, sweeping and cleaning the house, cooking and emptying the washing machine etc are chores your kids must do on a regular basis. Wake up! Your home isn't a passageway!

Develop Their Talent

Believe in your children's God given potential. Watch out for their natural talent and passion, nurture and help them grow to be the person they were created to be. Not the person YOU want to be!

Mete Out Discipline:

If you think bringing up children is as easy as easing bread and butter pudding, think again. From the beginning, set clear rules and boundaries. Rules must have consequences and rewards. You must be consistent in dishing out praises/gifts for good behaviour as well out meting out punishment for bad behaviour.

This is where modern day parenting falls abysmally short. Disciplining your child is as important as rewarding their good deeds. Be strong!

Last Word

When your job is done, your children will appreciate the tools you've provided them with to lead them in a lifetime of natural and spiritual success. When your children grow up, they'll not thank you for allowing them get away with wrong doing in their childhood.

Please share your experiences with us.

Character Interview of Logan Blake from Stolen Valentine Kiss #NewRelease #Giveaway

Welcome to Character Interview



To celebrate Valentine, Logan Blake, the hero from our New Release, STOLEN VALENTINE KISS (Holiday Series Book #1) is giving us a glimpse into his thoughts and life in our Character Interview.

Please participate in our giveaway (below) before you leave.



Meet Logan Blake

What's your full name? Describe your looks (include colour of hair & eyes) and personality?

I am Logan Blake. At well over six foot, I stand head and shoulder above many. My eyes are a deep blue shade women find fascinating and I have breezy brown hair. I would say am very ambitious, straightforward with an inquisitive nose and a determined mind.

Where do you live and where does your family originate from? Do you have siblings? Tell us how old you are today?

I live in Jersey City, New Jersey in the US. My family originally came from Texas. I have an older sister. You really want to know? Okay, I'm in my mid thirties.

What do you do for a living? Are you athletic? What do you  do for leisure?

I'm a publisher. I go for a jog now and again, plus I spend a short time in the gym especially to keep my abs well toned.

Are you in a relationship or do you have a crush on someone? Describe her to our readers?

I wasn't in a relationship because there was too much going on in my life and I was a work-aholic, until I bumped my shoulder into a lamp post at the sight of a pretty woman. The exposed flesh of the hotly attractive woman literally snuffed every fine work ethic I acquired over the years from my head. Lorna is hot!

How did you meet her? Is there anything noteworthy about your meeting? What draws you to her? 

I saw her wiping the window in a charity shop. Something noteworthy? The tattoos on her belly caught my attention and I couldn't believe she had the nerve to show off her softly rounded stomach. She's wholly feminine and damned proud of it. She's got curves I want to touch and a heart I want to explore. But am not quite sure am ready for a deep relationship.

Why is she the one you want to spend the rest of your life with? Do you want to have children?

When I get to that bridge, I'll cross it. Spending the rest of my life with her sounds far fetched at the moment. I want to have children someday, not sure how many.

Have you ever cheated on your lover?

What if I tell you and Lorna finds out? Allow me pass on that question. I've learnt the hard way, that's all I can say.

What's the most embarrassing moment of your life?

When Lorna found out what I'd been planning to reveal to her behind my back. The embarrassment was almost unbearable.

Thanks for having me.

Happy Valentine,

From: Logan Blake

Stolen Valentine Kiss by Stella Eromonsere-Ajanaku

Publication Date: Feb 1st 2014

ISBN/EAN 13: 1495237931/9781495237935 (Paperback)

Genre / Categories: Fiction/Romance/Contemporary/Interracial/Multicultural









One broken heart. Two grieving minds.

To Lorna Ibe, Departmental Manager with one of London's multi-channel retailers, Valentine's Day lost its romantic flavour years ago. An unplanned holiday to New Jersey is her perfect getaway from the stress and emotional turmoil locked in her heart, just what she needs to take her mind off her troubles. That's until she runs into Logan.

Magazine publisher, Logan Blake has had his fair share of stress in the past few years. When his sister asks him to drop off old clothes to charity, he has a minor accident in front of the charity shop where Lorna volunteers. When he sets eyes on her bare midriff as she wipes the display window, he clears his busy schedule to volunteer his time. Two burdened hearts afraid to get entwined.

One Stolen Valentine Kiss. Will Valentine season bring them romance or will their fears keep them apart?




The brush flew out of her unsteady hands for the third time in a row.
Swallowing hard, she eyeballed her reflection in the silver scalloped round dressing table mirror. Bending over, she snatched the brush from the carpet.

''Stay still,'' she spat through gritted teeth. Why is she doing everything to please her Aunt? You know the answer to that, her conscience whispered.
   In truth, she enjoyed her five hours treatment at the beauty spa today. She flicked her wrist. Five minutes more. Her pulsed raced and her teeth chattered.
Dragging in air, she swept a handful of black curls to the right side of her face.
 
The door bell clanged. She heard the door open. Stumbling to her feet, she rushed forward and placed her ears behind the door, straining to listen to his conversation with her Aunt. Her knees juddered. ''Only because I haven't been out on a date for so long,'' she muttered.
   The knock on her door sent her stumbling backwards, landing slapdash on the bed. Her Aunt walked in, a bemused smile on her face.
''So...so...so, Logan is even more manly...more striking than you let on. Wow! You look gorgeous in that red dress.'' Breathing easier, she stood up.
''Do you think this dress flatters me?''





Logan Blake




♡♡

Hands behind her back, she walked in to the room, her eyes widening broadly.
In a black suit, black shirt without tie and black shoes, Logan looked like a movie star. As she walked closer, his fragrance left her dazed. Out is his roguish look. His well styled hair, facial beard and moustache gave him a wicked edge. She couldn't stop staring open mouthed.
 
Her heart pounded in her ears and her throat ran out of saliva. His now deepening blue eyes slowly raked her from her upturned bouncy hair with a few tendrils sashaying round her neck to her red, A-line halter, Rhinestone, sleeveless, mini chiffon cocktail dress. Her silver sandal dolled up feet swayed precariously as both hands clutched her purse in steel like grip behind her back.
 
Clearing his throat, Logan pulled the lapels of his jacket. Is he nervous too? She held her breath. ''I'm speechless, Lorna.'' He blinked rapidly. Her chest soared, her eyes held his for a long moment. ''You're devastatingly beautiful! That red dress is superbly hot. You're a breath of fresh air in Jersey City,” his voice caught. Her heart danced and wheeled. Taking in deep breaths, she swallowed. ''Thank you, Logan. Glad you like the look. I must say you look gorgeous in black.'' Talk less, listen more. Her aunt's word floated in her ears.

Rubbing his palms together, Logan's eyes returned to her long legs. She walked towards him, careful not to topple over in her four inch pencil heel. Of course, she can walk in the accessorized high shoes. It is his gaze...which sends her feet in different directions, lighting up the ashes in her heart.









I am Stella Eromonsere-Ajanaku, a fun loving mother of two, married to my very own gorgeous alpha male. I recently 'retired' from an eighteen stint working as a Quality Assurance Manager. Writing romance novels is an exciting adventure.



In 2010, I created Flirty & Feisty Romance Novels. There are six contemporary romance novels in the kitty, varying from sweet & sensual to spicy hot & steamy - LOITERING SHADOWS, STORMY DEFENSE, BEYOND the LADY, THE GARDNER'S ICE MAIDEN, SPARKLING DAWN and HUSBAND to RENT. STOLEN VALENTINE KISS is my first series and my first Novella.

On my writing desk at the moment, my first historical romance, a trilogy is taking shape. A daunting challenge I must confess, but I love the characters and their journey so far. In my leisure time, I go swimming, read romance novels, go to Cinema, and watch TV.

Will Olivia kick out her Gardener or will she give in? The Gardener's Ice Maiden #Contemporary #Romance


As this is the wonderful season of romance and love, I want to share the personality and interests of our leading female character in Flirty & Feisty Romance fourth Novel - The Gardener’s Ice Maiden in this incisive character interview.


What's your full name? Describe your looks (include colour of hair & eyes) and personality?

Olivia Gleave is my name. I have shoulder length, straight blond hair dyed bronze with light blue eyes.

After all I have been through, I’ll describe my personality as cautious, reserved and unable to trust as quickly as I would like to. Is that a bad thing? I'm not sure.

Where do you live and where does your family originate from? Do you have siblings? Tell us how old you  are today?

My family lives in a small town called New Ferry, Merseyside, located on the Wirral Peninsula in the North West of England. I recently returned from studying and working in the United States. It is nice to be back home, even if not everyone is pleased to have me back. A few people, including someone who is dear to me believes am better off getting lost in America!

I have a younger sister and I’m twenty something years old. Women don’t reveal their ages!

What do you do for a living? Are you religious? Are you athletic? What do you  do for leisure?

I trained as a dentist, but I have recently branched off to dental consultancy. Running my new business and consulting in a hospital keeps me mentally and physically occupied.

My family are Christians and so I am, but living it out on a daily basis can be quite challenging. God help me.

I can say I am fit but there isn’t much room in my life for sports. Too busy with work most of the time. For leisure, I try to play with my son and do right by him.

Are you in a relationship or do you have a crush on someone? Describe him to our readers?

I’m not in a relationship. Well...that isn’t entirely true. There’s someone who has his eyes and naughty fingers on me but he doesn’t fit into my world. No...that’s not completely true.

Okay, I don’t want a relationship at the moment, but my fluttering heart isn’t cooperating. I think I may have a crush on the handsome, deep voice Nigerian gardener I pay to spruce up my garden. That’s an awkward position to be in as a professional woman. Why won’t my immature heart consider the many medical doctors I work with on a daily basis?

Oliver Gbade Pedro is great with his hands...in my garden. When he bends over to uproot weeds or plant flowers, his firm butt pushes up at me as I peep through my bedroom window. His big sized, well toned and attractive muscle leaves me gasping for air and sweating at night.

How did you meet him? Is there anything noteworthy about your meeting? What draws you to him?


At an interview I organized to recruit a gardener whose sole job is to turn the dead ground in my new home to a place of beauty. It was poor judgement on my path to hire someone so confident, so cocky and outrageously handsome as Oliver to tend my garden. He wants to tend my life!

Oh, his African hair-style fascinates me. I can’t stop staring at him.

And what’s so irresistible about him is the fact that he never does what I ask of him. He drives me nuts.


Why is he the one you want to spend the rest of your life with? Do you want to have children?

Who says I want to spend the rest of my life with Oliver? If he plays his card right, we may have something deep going on but for now, I am taking it a day at a time. I have a nine year old son already. If I meet the right man...who knows? I might have more kids.

Have you ever cheated on your lover?

No, I haven’t. Why would I do that? If I want out, I’ll step out of the relationship.

What's the most embarrassing moment of your life?

Finding out I was pregnant at eighteen. I wanted the earth to open up and swallow me alive instead of facing my sanctimonious mother and the scandal that followed.



******

The Gardener's Ice Maiden - Blurb




Will the Ice Queen thaw?
When a single mum and brilliant dental consultant Olivia Gleave woke up to the reality that she was entangled in her gardener’s snare, she found it laughable. But when she found out too late that he's an ex-convict and an ex-gang member, it is confirmation their paths will lead to nowhere.
His pride is at stake

What the arrogant gardener wants, he pursues vigorously. Oliver Gbadeyan Pedro set his eyes on the well-bred, blue-blood, Ice Queen of the prominent Gleave’s family Manor. In his bid to get her, he paid a huge price... His sacrifice comes back to haunt him in the way he least expects. Will his search for the woman who is completely out of his financial, social and moral status be a total waste of time? Or do they have more in common than they both realize?
Come on board for this emotionally relaxing experience.

Logan's left arm draped round her waistline as if he couldn't bear to be away from her. ''Are you trying to make a few women jealous?'' Lorna breathed in his ear, nearly tempted to nibble his fair earlobe.
''Why do you say that?'' he whispered back, his gaze darting towards the couple standing a few yards from them.

''Too many women have given me knife edge glances already. I feel the sharp end of their stinging glare. As I don't know them...I can only conclude they want you...and they think am standing in their way.'' A cool smile passed her lips. She shivered when his breath caressed her eyelids. His fingers, cleverly hidden from view stroked beneath her ribs absently, giving her undeniable pleasure.

''Are you bothered, Lorna?''
She tried to stand upright, but her knees still buckled. One hand reached for his abdomen. Oh, it was as taut as she expected with ridges but she didn't bargain for the piping hot desire shooting through her arm.

Snatching her seared hand away, she sucked in air. ''Should I be? Is there any one of these glamorous women you fancy? I can arrange for her to come over?'' Arabella approached with a pretty blonde woman in tow.

''Logan, meet Isabella. She's a doctor in Christ Hospital. I've told her a lot about you. Isabella, keep Logan happy for awhile," she instructed. Logan's face showed no expression.

With a nod at her brother, she tapped Lorna's hand reassuringly. 'I'll borrow Lorna for a few minutes." Before Logan could respond, she hurried off, introducing her to her circle of friends. ''What do you do?'' Arabella asked after almost ten minutes of circulating among her guests. Lorna’s cheeks hurt from constantly smiling at people who didn’t give a wink about her presence at the party. She hasn't been in such a large gathering since...

Arabella nudged her. ''Are you dreaming about my brother?'' her eyes flashed angrily as they entered what must be a guest bedroom. Lorna's eyes darted round, her brain suddenly registering the other woman's intention.
''Do I look dreamy?'' she replied equally sarcastically.
''What do you do, Lorna?'' the room decorated in neutral colours of magnolia and beige soothed her wary nerves.

''Are you asking out of interest or spite?'' she retorted.
Arabella’s deep blue eyes narrowed with simmering hostility, but she quickly averted her gaze, shielding her expression. ''You're a guest in my home. I want to get to know you.'' She nodded. ''I volunteer at the cancer charity store but I...''
''Is that where you met my brother?'' the other woman cut in sharply.
''Yes, if you must know. Is our pep-talk going to be about Logan? You plan on warning me to stay off him, right?'' her gaze raked Arabella's flesh.

Logan's elder sister sat down on the bed, her chest heaving. ''Look here, Lorna. I know Logan may have shown a little interest in you for the moment, but trust me, you're not his type. He needs a woman with...wealth, a true professional.''
''Does he know you're bent on securing him a wife?'' she countered tartly. Arabella's gaze mirrored barely disguised anger for a split second.
''What do you expect me to do? Watch him marry just any woman? Oh no! Logan deserves a woman who can fit into his world.''
