Hey, everyone! I’m Daniel Whitman, and today I’m taking over the Crimson Romance blog. I really don’t know why I’m here, but my cousin Ashley thought it would be a good marketing tool to connect with romance readers and tell them about the new facility that is going to be opening soon at my resort, Emerald Paradise.
I admit I could rave over the new Gong Vibration facility we’re currently building. It’s innovative and exciting and something that will amaze everyone when they come visit us. But this is a place for romance and for romance readers, so I thought I’d share with you how wonderful love really is.
My story, Daniel’s Decision, is out and so you know I found my happy ever after. (That’s not a spoiler alert — Rochelle has told me on numerous occasions that romance readers want a happy ever after.) Getting to my happy ending was a tough journey, but at the end of the day I’ve got my girl and I’m not letting her go.
Love is funny, isn’t it? It can sneak up on you when you least expect it and it changes your life. If you’d told me three months ago that I’d be married I would’ve laughed in your face and told you how ridiculous that concept really was. Marriage wasn’t on my radar and with my brothers succumbing to the love bug I was even more determined not to let it happen to me. I remember telling Chad on numerous occasions that I wasn’t falling into that trap. For once I’m really happy to eat my words.
While love is wonderful, it can also leave you vulnerable — and that’s what scared me the most about falling in love. I saw what losing Mom did to my Dad. When Mom died I felt like I’d lost my best friend and advisor – who else would tell me to stop being a jerk and then give me a cookie? But I have to say, I think my mom sent Rochelle to me. Rochelle is a strong, independent, beautiful woman. She completes me and I can’t wait to share the rest of my life with her. And if anyone whispers that to my brothers I’m going to deny it. LOL.
Thanks for having me here! I hope you enjoyed my views on love. I’d love to hear your thoughts on finding true love and if it crept up on you unexpectedly like it did me.
