 Re­la­tion­ships can be com­pli­cated,

but they are so well worth it.  We all need to make an ef­fort to be

ro­man­tic, both men and women.  Every one of us has char­ac­ter flaws, but those flaws are part of what makes true love so pow­er­ful.  Love looks dif­fer­ent to all of us and

every ver­sion is equally im­por­tant.  Strong women are beau­ti­ful.  Happy ever af­ter is not an un­re­al­is­tic

goal; it just takes work.  En­gag­ing all your senses is the best

way to ex­pe­ri­ence greater sen­su­al­ity.  Love is worth all kinds of sac­ri­fice. Love can hap­pen any­where, at any time and be­tween any­one.

The power of sin­cere love and sup­port can help move us be­yond trau­mas from the past.

Strong chem­istry and an emo­tional con­nec­tion are the keys to a won­der­ful love life.

Thérèsé’s lat­est novel is Fall­ing for His Con­ve­nient Queen (Harpercollins; R117)

How to deal with los­ing love. Whether it’s a breakup or death. That pain has to be lived through.

To trust my­self more. And, more than that, I wish the process would get eas­ier. Then again, if you aren’t push­ing your­self, you aren’t pro­gress­ing.  Man­ners never go out of fash­ion. Open­ing a door or pulling a chair out makes a guy hot, not weak.  What you think you want and what you ac­tu­ally need aren’t al­ways the same. Think you want a bad boy? It could turn out that it’s the geek who rocks your world.  Re­la­tion­ships re­veal our flaws, and that’s

fine. Flaw­less peo­ple are bor­ing, any­way!  Fam­ily doesn’t al­ways mean be­ing linked by DNA. Some­times, love cre­ates a stronger bond than DNA ever could.  Life is hard, and life with­out a best friend is dou­bly so. Why wouldn’t you want the sup­port and love of a funny, feisty woman who has your back?  In ro­mance nov­els, the hero­ine al­ways has a mas­sive smile on her face af­ter sex, and re­ally, shouldn’t life im­i­tate art?  Love doesn’t mean mould­ing your­self into the per­son your part­ner wants. True love is about be­ing ap­pre­ci­ated for ex­actly who you are – faults and all.  Re­la­tion­ships can’t only be about a hot body and sexy face. There has to be sub­stance be­low the sur­face.  You have to be able to laugh with the

per­son you fall in love with.  We all have to ex­pe­ri­ence pain in life. This classic is a re­minder that we all pull on a cloak in the hopes of en­cour­ag­ing oth­ers to see us as we would like to be seen, rather than how we re­ally are. But if we don’t look be­yond that cloak of ap­pear­ances, we could miss out on won­der­ful friend­ships and even on the loves of our lives.

This book is a great guide to the art of man­i­fest­ing: un­der­stand­ing that we be­come what we imag­ine we are, and our thoughts cre­ate our des­tinies.

Ge­or­gette Hey­ers de­liv­ers a master class in writ­ing a hero­ine who is fan­tas­ti­cally re­lat­able and strong-willed – a 21st-cen­tury woman liv­ing in the his­toric Re­gency world.
