Shopping with the Alpha Male

Buy Ravished Before Sunrise HERE!

by Lia Davis
Some men like to shop, while for some it’s like dragging them to the doctor or dentist office. My husband is one of those who dislikes it and will avoid it when possible. Although there are times I get him into a store. Let me tell you it is very amusing.

His idea of shopping is to rush through the store and get what he came to get and leave. Period. Me on the other hand, I like to take my time because it is practically the only time I get to myself. I usually take about an hour to grocery shop, and I do it in the morning where there aren’t as much people in the store. It’s nice.

When DH and I go together, and I start to wander off to the book aisle, or stop to look at something not on the must have list, he groans. Sometimes he’ll snap his fingers and indicate to follow him. LOL. The snapping of the fingers is something he does to get the cats to behave. It doesn’t work on me. LOL. After 12 years he’s still trying to get it to work on me though. Ha! I laugh when he does it and usually do what I want anyway.

Despite the snapping fingers and “no, you don’t need that”, I love shopping with him. Mostly because we’re together.

Born with the unusual ability to see what truly lies in the shadows, Emalee Black is stuck between two worlds, the paranormal and the human. Neither one accepts or understands her and she's forced to live a quiet, boring life in hiding. When her best friend mentions 1Night Stand dating service, Ema chooses a role-playing adventure straight out of her romantic fantasies. She's to hunt her very own vampire and have her wicked way him.

Vampire Darian Wyman is surprised when his daughter signs him up for a one-night stand with an exclusive matching agency. At first he's appalled by the idea, but as he reads the details of the date he becomes intrigued. For one night he will get away from the life he has long grown tired of to be hunted and captured by a would-be huntress. But he has plans of his own for his little vixen.

However, when Darian discovers the truth about Ema's inhuman abilities, the date could end before it gets started.

I absolutely LOVE shopping with my hubby. He also likes it which makes it even better. Whenever we are shopping to find me new clothes, it's HIM that always finds the best stuff! I could look around for hours and not find the things he does. He also finds all the best deals, but lets face it he's a salesman, it's in his blood. lol. But he always finds the perfect things for me and wants me to try them on. I have my very own personal shopper. ;-)
