G is for Gifts. Not just any gifts, but Simple Gifts.
This is one of the most beautiful settings I have ever found. Allison Kraus and Yo Yo Ma, complete with gorgeous photos:
I’ve written about Simple Gifts before, including a few snippets:
- The Vivaldi Concerto
- Sexy Smooth
- The Kiss
- The First Sex Scene
- On Writing My First Sex Scene
- Going Diva
The lyrics are here, although I use a slightly different version in the book.
‘Tis the gift to be simple, ’tis the gift to be free
- ‘Tis the gift to come down where we ought to be,
And when we find ourselves in the place just right,
- ‘Twill be in the valley of love and delight.
When true simplicity is gained,
- To bow and to bend we shan’t be ashamed,
To turn, turn will be our delight,
- Till by turning, turning we come ’round right.
Music. Without the love of her life, how can Leila learn to live again?
Carene welcomes Leila with open arms and only one condition: no divas allowed. And if Leila can’t follow the house rules, she might find herself over Carene’s knee…or worse. In between arguments over physical therapy and house rules, Carene’s zero-tolerance policy regarding divas results in some old-fashioned discipline that changes into something more.
Will Leila and Carene’s new feelings for each other blossom into something wonderful? Or will Leila lose not just a friend, but also her potential soul mate?
