Letters to Lavender

Dear Lavender,

How do I get my husband to treat me like the heroes in your books treat their women?

Lavender speaks:

Do you really want a man to boss you around, make all the decisions about every detail of your life with him, and give you the best sex you’ve ever had in your life?

(Okay, I admit hot delicious sex on a regular basis is a wonderful thing to have in a relationship.) But some of the other characteristics of my heroes are a little more than I’d like in a steady man. Every once and a while, sure. Gimmie-gimmie! But as a constant? I don’t think so. That’s why I use the phrase ‘Fairytales for Smart Women’ so freely.

I think every woman likes a little fantasy in her life and with the right man, those fantasies can be achieved. But a steady diet of wild and crazy will eventually become a bore. The trick is to learn to enjoy your man and all his idiosyncrasies and help him enjoy yours.

And of course, reading hot romance novels like mine might give you a few ideas!
