Does Love Have A Face? Answered by Jessica Lauryn

jessica-lauryn-2

My Dear Future Readers,

Today, I am very excited to be talking about true love to Jessica Lauryn, author of The Pinnacles of Power Series as well as her new series, The Rabourn Theater Series, An Amorous Dance Book 2. She is a Romance Suspense author and An Amorous Dance was just released on January 17th. It is on Preorder at Siren BookStrand.

I, in fact went to her Release Party for An Amorous Dance which you can read about here: My Reflections About Co-Hosting the Release Party for An Amorous Dance by Diana Rose. It was in fact the most enjoyable party I have ever been to. I won more than I just being a co-host. I won a title for my new book. which is a completely unexpected find.

I am very happy to talk to a fellow romance author about true love because as romance author we write about true love every day. And so, here are the questions that I asked Jessica Lauryn in my first interview with her.

  1. Do you think love can have a face?

Though there are many different ways that this idea might be interpreted, I believe that love, in and of itself, could be described as a face.  We see the face of love whenever we’re served with an act of kindness from another person.  To me, love can be defined as the overwhelming desire to give selflessly of one’s self for the sake of another.  When I look into the eyes of someone who loves their neighbor as they do themselves, I am looking at love’s face.

  1. Would you say that finding love, true love in today’s world as compared to a few years ago is harder or easier and why?

There is no doubt that we’re living in strange times, and the verbiage that we hear in our world through social media, news outlets and general conversation can rarely be described as loving.  Disheartening as that is, I believe that the people in our world have a tremendous capacity to love and that this is as true today as it ever was.  We find true love in the most unexpected ways, at times when we least expect it.  True love is not meant to be completely understood. It never dies and we find it when we’re meant to find it.

  1. What is your definition for true love? Now, I mean the kind of love that lasts 65+ years of marriage.

I believe true love begins with a spark experienced between two people, a fascination that never dies, whether they’re on their first date or celebrating their seventy fifth wedding anniversary.  When two people are truly in love, they bring out the best in each other and they inspire one another to be their best selves.  They cannot imagine their lives without the other person.  They share values on a deep level and they grow to become part of one another over time.

  1. Now, about marriage and a lasting marriage, what would you say is a key element to that?

I do believe that sometimes, soul mates quarrel and go their separate ways.  But to make a marriage work you must have, first and foremost, trust and honesty. Respect and consideration go hand in hand to working as an equal partner to one’s spouse.  All couples fight but those who truly love one another fight fairly.  Their desires and values lead them along the same path.  Neither feels the need to compromise.

  1. If indeed you see that it is true love, how do you recognize that?

As we often see in novels, I believe it is that moment when a person feels as though they have been hit by lightning when they suddenly realize that they are truly in love.  To an observer, true love can be recognized in couples who exhibit true consideration for one another, who are highly attentive to the needs of their partner and put those needs before their own.

  1. What if…Love had a face? Would you be able to recognize it for who it is? Or would you walk past Love and not know that face you just saw was love?

I see love in the faces of my family and friends every day of my life.  Concerning my own true, romantic love, my eyes are always open and when I see him, I will know it!

To be honest with you, I cried on question  number three.Why? Because that is exactly what I saw happen to my grandparents. Yes it made me emotional to read that answer. I believe that Jessica Lauryn echoed more than one of my views on this subject. I got to see another side of her and more like a person rather than just an author of the wonderful books she writes. Her views on love also echo the beliefs that I was taught as young girl from my grandparents’ love story. Which is also the large reason why I, myself, write romance.

I do hope that out there in the world of today there are still people like Jessica Lauryn, myself, and my grandparents who are not with us anymore but have left their love story as an example, so that those of us who still have these same views can find happiness.

This is in fact the kind of love that I write about and I believe that the way Jessica Lauryn spoke about it is the most correct point of view on the subject that comes from a romance author. True love is meant to be shown in actions towards another human being and that in fact is harder to find. I mean, to find the kind of love that is shown in everyday actions and thoughtfulness. Yes, I believe that it is possible.

 I believe that if we keep looking, one way nor another we will find this kind of love.

But as my grandfather used to say, “The question of when that happens is a war secret.”

I, honestly never understand that but as I keep looking, I think that it is true. You can not know when something will happen but you can only hope that it will happen.

I hope that you enjoyed Jessica Lauryn’s interview on my blog. Next interview will be featuring a different author.

I look forward to hearing from you soon. I thank you all for your infinite support.

Yours Truly,

Diana Rose

An Amorous Dance Release Party Co-Hosted By Diana Rose

jessica-lauryn-2

My Dear Future Readers,

On Saturday, January 14th,  I was invited to co-host Jessica Lauryn’s Release Party for her new book, An Amorous Dance , the second book in her Rabourn Theater Series, which is now available for Preorder.

Jessica Lauryn is  also the author of The Pinnacles of Power Series a romance suspense series. It was this series, in fact, that started Jessica Lauryn’s writing career. I believe she has a lot of talent in writing Romance. Her books find a way to both intrigue and fill the pages of her stories with emotion that only romance can do.

Romance suspense is a genre that explores suspense and gives an equal amount of suspense and romance in one story. I believe that the ideas that Ms Lauryn comes up with in her stories are so realistic that at times they reflect reality.

I am pleased to be invited again to be co-hosting with her. For as long I have known Jessica Lauryn, I think of her as very gentle, kind and beautiful woman who is very romantic at heart. I am glad that I can once again support her beautiful talent and be a part of her success with her new book.

Authors stick together and help each other and this wonderful woman has always inspired me to go forward as she herself has been doing. She inspires me to write more because I have seen how many books she published and each book is hard work. That’s why I love the person she is. Her books have the same amount of heart as she does.

Jessica Lauryn’s new book is the continuation of The Rabourn Theater Series. It tells the story of Hannah Rabourn one of the daughter’s of the late  owner of the theater and her past love Evan Masters. It is a very exciting and thrilling story of a reunited love in the midst of lost memories and attackers who threaten Hannah.

Jessica Lauryn’s main characters always find a way to each other despite the obstacles that used to divide them. There are memories that Hannah suppressed but now has to remember in order to sort through the motives of her attacker.

I believe that I like this book and that I will enjoy learning more about Hannah Rabourn and Evan Masters at the release party on Tuesday. It an honor for me to be a part of Jessica Lauryn’s upcoming release party because she is a wonderful author who is motivated and dedicated to her writing. I believe that this blossoming author will write a lot more beautiful books like those she has already published.

The Rabourn Theater Series is just starting and it is surprisingly an intriguing series. It intrigues me especially because I myself have been a part of a theater class in my college days. I took some acting courses and I have grown to like it. Which is why reading Jessica Lauryn’s new series about the theater and the suspenseful acts that go on there amidst the love that blossoms between Hannah Rabourn and Evan Masters is very close to my heart.

I participated in a Solo Performance in my college which is why I think that for anyone who loves acting and theater as much as I do this series is the best choice. I am an honored guest and I hope that many of Jessica Lauryn’s readers will enjoy this book. The description of the events in the book really makes the reader want to find out about what happens next. Do Hannah and Evan fall in love and stay together? What are the memories that Hannah tries so hard to remember?

I’m sure that all those questions will be answered in the book, An Amorous Dance by Jessica Lauryn. This book will reveal much more about theater and the people who work there as well as the romances that go one behind the scenes when the curtain closes.Of course, I will tell you more about my experiences during this Release Party. But, I will say this…

At the moment, there are a lot of people who have come to support me as I co-host this Release Party with Jessica Lauryn and I am humbled and grateful to them because they are all also published authors whom have become my friends and support me during my starting out career as a full-time author. Thank you! Thank you!

I will be posting another blog post after the Release Party ends. I want to tell you my reactions after the event and also share with you what it feels like to be a part of a Release Party for the second time as an author. It will be posted sometime on Thursday or Friday so that I can have time to write it.

I look forward to hearing from you soon. I thank you all for your infinite support.

Yours Truly,
