Do You Believe in Soulmates?
In my latest release, His Only Treasure, my two main protagonists, Anne and Stede, are true soulmates. Reincarnated from the essence or souls of two long ago lovers, they finally find each other again. As I have it in the book, their souls had been searching for each other for over three hundred years.
Can you imagine that? Is there really such a thing or is it just a silly, over-romanticized notion? Is your other half out there wandering aimlessly, looking for you?
The idea of finding that perfect someone--the other half of you--is a daunting one to say the least. There are a lot of souls out there and some of us have kissed a lot of frogs in our quest to find that special connection.
A lot of men and women end up settling for contentment rather than waiting it out. Hell, if you believe in soulmates, then you also know that you may not find them in this lifetime, but may have to wait several to see them again. At least that's what I believe.
So have you found your other half, the person who completes you? Or are you like me, still waiting and wondering--dreaming?
I think I ran into mine several years ago. The encounter was brief, lasted about two minutes. Yes, I know that is a pretty short encounter and you're thinking how could she possibly know in only two minutes? Sometimes you just do. That's the only way I know how to answer that.
So here's what I want to know (a question that was posed to me with regard to my two-minute meeting). If you encountered another person for just two minutes who touched you so profoundly you could not get them out of your head and carried them with you forever, and that meeting affected you so deeply it seemed impossible for your heart to be at peace without seeing them again--being with them--do you think it would be better if you had never met them at all? Just blissfully gone on with life completely unaware of their existence and probably settled for contentment?
While you ponder all these questions, pick up a copy of His Only Treasure. It's a treasure hunt in more ways than one. Available now at Whiskey Creek Press Torrid.
