Dear Linda,

I've noticed in several of your books (I haven't read them all to be 100% sure), you always have a scene of some sort where the H & H are eating, usually in a restaurant. Is this a little perk of yours?

Oh, geesh, do I? LOL! I've never been aware of that odd habit that I seem to have. Now I'm going to be very conscious of it, but to me such a scene is always inevitable. The hero and heroine need to talk at some point, and a very comfortable way of doing that - prior to and after love scenes - is when they're having a bite. I guess you could say that food and sex go together like peanut butter and jelly.
