Take-Out Romance

Take-out pizza is a simple but yummy meal that can lead to romance.

Take-out pizza became popular in the 1950’s. The earliest reference to pizza delivery is Casa D’Amore in Los Angeles. Take-out pizza and other take-out foods coincided with the explosion of family and ethnic restaurants while returning WWII GIs moved with their families to the suburbs and the arrival of televisions.

Flash forward to 2017, needless to say a couple doesn’t need to go out and spend a lot of money to have a romantic evening. Take-out pizza, a bottle of wine, music and an old-fashioned fire in a fireplace can create an air of romance. You don’t need to wait for a blizzard or any kind of storm to have a night in. Give it a try!
Dyami and Amanda did!

Here’s an excerpt from Eagle Dance. Dyami had plans to treat his blind date to a fancy dinner and dancing. Unfortunately, a blizzard changed things. He and Amanda decided to order take-out pizza and spend the evening inside.

“Let’s get the pizza then head to the cabin.” He dropped the phone in a cup holder.

She spoke matter-of-factly. “We should pick up some chocolate or caramel syrup, too.”

 He blinked sinfully long eyelashes and as the suggestive words sank in, he smirked. Leaning over the center console, he framed her cheek with one large hand. His eyes bore into hers as he took her mouth in a searing kiss that ended much too soon.

“You got something planned for dessert?”


He flashed perfect teeth in a full grin then cranked up the heat in the truck and put it in gear. The goatee on his chin, and the dark brows, gave him a devilish appearance and, when he smiled, she ached to climb all over him. A wild night with a handsome Indian was what she’d requested, but had received much more.


Eagle Dance Blurb
Dyami Schafer, a Native American from the Chippewa tribe, leads a lonely life due to his large size and unusual appearance. When his nesting instinct sets in, he turns to Madame Eve and 1Night Stand to help him find his spirit mate. Or at least a woman who accepts him as an eagle shifter.
Amanda Collins never stopped loving the Chippewa boy she knew from her childhood. Maybe a night with a Native American man will help her forget the past and let her move on with her life.
 Sometimes, it’s necessary to take a step into the past before dancing into the future. With the help of Madame Eve, will the Spirit of the Eagle carry Dyami and Amanda?
