Learning to Let Go

I mentioned in a previous blog post that I have fallen in love with perfume. It is my new hobby and obsession. An incredible scent can keep me smiling all day long. Or it can keep me online doing research to learn more and trying to find a good deal. But I’ve learned from this hobby that nothing is forever. Perfumistas are constantly bemoaning the discontinuation of a love or howling at the reformulation of a favorite. I recently realized this hobby might exist to teach me how to let go of something that I might love. And, to always remember that a new love might be right around the corner. I suppose my characters also need to learn there is always an abundance of love so long as they are willing to let go of the past and be open to the future. Hmm, I hope Tariq and Katiya from my newest work, The Sheik and the Shake, can learn this lesson quickly or boy are they in for a hard ride (hint hint  ).
