The Many Types of Love & How They Manifest in My Life
A guest post by Bella Andre
You know that saying - kindness begets kindness? Well, I think love begets love, and the more love you have in your life - of all types - the more you learn about how to love yourself and others. The first kind of love you learn about, soon after you're born, is love for your family. Then comes love for your classmates and friends, then various dates until you meet the one.
Family love is so important to me. My husband is incredibly supportive and we're both equal partners in everything we do. Since I've always got a new book to write, I try to get my pages in while the kids are at school. But since my daily to-do list often spills over into the evening, I often take my MacBook Air into the living room and write or answer emails while my kids play on the carpet.
In fact, just at this very moment, my son is organizing his baseball cards on the floor while my daughter sits beside him and colors…and my fabulous husband cleans up the kitchen. (Hooray for men with cleaning skills!) I hope we're creating a loving, nurturing environment so when my kids grow up and find partners of their own, they know what true love feels like.
Mary Sullivan is an example of love for her eight children, the talented siblings of the Sullivan series. Because she cares so much for them, and they care for each other, they're unwilling to accept less than that level of devotion and affection in their partner. The family is also so intuitive, they learn to recognize when the others are in love.
In my latest release, Smith (COME A LITTLE BIT CLOSER) falls for his co-star's sister. But Valentina is determined not to be the kind of woman who falls into bed with a sexy movie star. Only, when Smith's family meets Valentina and Smith, they're immediately able to see that Valentina is different than any other woman Smith has ever been with - and that Smith is happier because of her, too.
You'll also get introduced to this amazing contemporary romance series via excerpts as well as interviews with and guest posts from New York Times and USA Today best-selling author, Bella Andre. You'll definitely want to learn more about the family that has captured the world's heart.
