Guest Blogger Vanessa A. Johnson, Author of Sacrifices In The Name of Love

Good morning all. I’m Vanessa A Johnson, author of ebook Sacrifices In The Name of Love. I’m from Louisiana, just west of The Big Easy. As we approach Valentine’s Day, with the theme of love in the air, I’d like to give you a small excerpt from my book, Sacrifices In The Name of Love, which is the moment my characters Trey Martin and Tessa Phillips share their first kiss.
“When the only thing separating us was our warm, quick, panting breaths of hot air, our gazes remained locked together. We stared deep into each other‟s eyes. My entire insides burned with desire. Trey‟s stare set my soul on fire, a fire that only he could squelch.
Bolts of electricity burst throughout my body from the nearness of him. I couldn‟t contain my desire any longer. I leaned my face toward his, shut my eyes and opened my hot, trembling lips to invite in Trey‟s equally hot quivering tongue. Our lips locked in a slow dance as we methodically sucked, twirled, and toyed and explored each other‟s mouths.
I felt like I was floating on a cloud and peacefully drifting toward the heavens.”

Now, as my book title suggests, what sacrifices have you made under the guise of love. Better yet, what is one thing you have done, be it childish, foolish, stupid, etc., under the guise of love. Now don’t be shy, spill it! If you haven’t made any sacrifices, then tell me about your first kiss…the real one, not the one on the side of the face…the one where you exchanged DNAs…

  1. This does sound like a great read


  2. It sounds like a great book.

  3. I occasionally watch my husband play on his Xbox (cuz he likes the company). I hate it, but it makes him so happy so I do it.

  4. I’ve sacrifice a career in the name of love. Wouldn’t recommend doing that.

  5. I sacrificed a career in education, moving every time my husband transferred to another state with his job. Never got tenure, don’t have a decent retirement but I would do it again if the choice was to be made now. Linda

  6. Thanks Virginia and Angelina, check it out if you’re so inclined 🙂 Maria, Kasey and Linda, do they realize and appreciate the sacrifice you’ve made for them?

  7. I sacrificed my job and moved half way across the country to be with my husband.
    This sounds like a great book, must check it out.

  8. I don’t know if you’d call it a sacrifice really. I gave up a military posting in San Francisco to be near my future husband in Florida. Course he was a four hour drive away. LOL. And I’m the one who usually made the drive on the weekends.

  9. Of course it’s a sacrifice, Doxymom…I see a lot of you sacrificed your careers for your mates…I pray these sacrifices were worth it in that the relationships has withstood the test of time.

  10. Right now it’s more the sacrifices my husband’s making 😉 I’m a packrat; he’s not. My stuff is driving him insane, but he manages not to say a word…
