You've found the home on the net for romance writer, LaVerne Clark. Thanks for visiting! :)

I write suspense and light fantasy/paranormal set in the beautiful country of New Zealand. A land of myths and magic, Aotearoa (Maori for Long White Cloud) has always been a storytelling nation and it is my pleasure to share mine with you.

Make yourself your drink of choice, stay a while and feel free to leave comments. I love to meet new friends.

Love is in the Air - Blog Hop!





Welcome to another pit-stop on the Love is in the Air Blog Hop. I’m so thrilled to be sharing such a special time on the calendar with you! J Don't forget to visit the other participating blogs (links at the bottom of this post) to increase your chances of winning lots of yummy goodies!







I will be giving one lucky commenter a PDF copy of my fantasy romance, Affinity – an international giveaway (winner announced February 15th). Don’t forget to leave me some comment love and your email so I can send you your prize!

In the wrong hands, her gift could be a curse - in her mind, it already is.

You’re here, because like me, you love romance. There is simply no better way to indulge than to pick up a good book and lose yourself in those heady feelings only love can bring.

A good cover can take you through all those same emotions - tell a story - and I happen to think my publisher, The Wild Rose Press, are one of the best, so I thought I'd show some of them off. 

(I've also read each of these stories below and can attest to them being knock-out love stories!)

The first glance...

First Touch

First Kiss


First intimate moment

Marriage



Love in later life















Sigh…love and romance is the best don't you agree?


What is your favourite moment of the dance between two people as they embark on a relationship? Is it the build-up of the attraction; the first kiss; or the declaration?

I hope you have a wonderful Valentine’s Day with the person you love the most and good luck with all the goodies on offer during this Blog Hop.

    1. That is mine too, Beckey! Writing or reading a book with lashings of sexual tension is the best - when its done well anyway! :)

    1. Ooo! I have been known to cry during one of those scenes, Cerian. Especially if its late at night and I've just HAD to finish the book before even thinking about going to sleep.

    1. Ooo - yes. That whole, 'do they? don't they?' thing. A good book twists the readers insides along with the heroine's doesn't it? :)
