Imagine Starring in Your Own Personal Romance Novel

Have you ever thought about reading a romance novel where you and your beloved starred as the main characters? A personal book containing adventures that you live throughout each page, adventures which otherwise are escapades only dreamed of or probably never even imagined.

One of the best Christmas gifts my husband ever gave me was a novel written uniquely for us. Starring as the main characters, we read about things we never have done and in some instances would never even dream of doing. Needless to say, it is thrilling to read, especially together. It is a book that really gets your imagination going.

Just image picking up a novel and finding your name, your spouse's name, and other defining characteristics unique to your life mentioned throughout the book. The story becomes a magnet where you find yourself unable to put the book down, you just want to know more . . . what will you find yourself doing next? It becomes a fantastic journey shared by two!

But where can one find such a treasured gift?

In "New Mexico Nights" . . .

A famous artist pays special attention to the starring couple and paints a very compromising portrait. They had no clue such a portrait existed until it was on display at a local art exhibit. This situation became one of many memorable experiences on the couple's trip to New Mexico.

Hmmm, how did the artist manage to paint such a portrait?

You could never guess, but you can find out in your own personal copy of "New Mexico Nights"!

When I Received My 1st Customized Novel

A Very Memorable Day!

Christmas morning 2004 became the day I learned about when I received my very own copy from my husband. This book contained our customized adventure and became one of my best gifts ever!

My husband is always seeking great, unique gifts and this year he definitely "hit it out of the park!" Another gift he surprised me with this particular Christmas happened to be a violin, something I had always wanted. But in spite of that, the book managed to take the #1 spot as my favorite gift of that year and is still a gift I treasure.

Opening My Novel

It was a family gathering on Christmas morning 2004. Doug was eagerly anticipating the moment when I opened his special gift. When my turn came around to open the small package, I carefully unwrapped the bow, ribbons, and glittering paper. Inside I found a book entitled, "Away on the Range" by Fletcher Newbern. On the cover was a horse, standing by a rustic barn with majestic mountains in the background. I thought, "should I know this author, and yes I do love horses, but why was Doug so excited about giving me this book that looked so ordinary?"

Then I opened the book and on the first page were these words,

"A Personalized Romance Novel Featuring Debbie and Doug".

Then on the second page I found,

"This Book Is Lovingly Dedicated To

My Darling Wife, Debbie


Doug, Who Loves You Bunches!

Merry Christmas


Wow! I was beginning to see this was no ordinary book. My children began asking, "Mom, what's it about?" So I opened it up and read from the first chapter--

...Debbie leaned into Doug's shoulder and squeezed his hand. She could feel her heart pounding rapidly, and it brought a smile to her face because it was caused by not only the adventure they were about to embark on, but just as much by her love for this man who filled her life with so much joy."

..."Doug was also feeling a bit emotional, completely content and happy. He inhaled deeply and in doing so brought the essence of Debbie's perfume into his nostrils. The smell made him heady. He bent his head slightly to kiss her blonde hair."

..."Debbie looked up, a gesture rewarded by Doug's wide smile and sparkling blue eyes. "I love you, too," she whispered."

..."He kissed her forehead, then gave her a hug." . . .

I blushed as I read this excerpt and our children decided it may be better that they not hear more!

Nothing Says Romance Like Candlelight - It sets the perfect mood

Beautiful color to set a romantic mood; this candle smells amazing!

Will Your Romantic Novel be Mild or Wild? - Will you leave more or less to the imagination?

In the mild version, the couple shares romantic moments but only kiss and hug, further details are omitted.

In the wild version, the love scenes are more detailed but still most is left to the imagination.

Neither version uses explicit language or details graphic content.

      These does indeed sound like a truly romantic gift. I love the personalized items they make the gift so very much more a keepsake. This book is probably one that your grandchildren will read when they are adults (and they will smile just as you did knowing how much love was given along with that book).
