A little this and a little that ... funny we were on the same wave length today ... I posted some hunks today and chatted about getting out of a funk. These help.

Thanks everyone for commenting! It's completely amusing some of the expectations people have when you say you write erotica or erotica romance or even romance. Oh, preconceptions.
