More Luscious Tips from Dr. Charley

More ideas to spice up your life.  

Two wonderful suggestions to try now that spring is in the air. 


Today, get a little daring!

Enhance your senses by using a blindfold. Allow your body to absorb the delicate feel of your lover’s touch. Inhale their scent and notice how your body reacts to it. Explore their taste on your tongue. Listen to their voice as they whisper in your ear.  

Take a walk or sit outside and allow yourself to feel the elements around you. Notice how your body reacts to them.  Hold your arms out and feel the breeze against your skin. How it plays with your hair. How it brushes against you.  This is the start of your sensuality. Feeling everything around you, on you, against you.


I know, some of you are sitting there shaking your head at the first suggesting saying to yourself ... I am not using a blindfold. Okay, that 's fine. Just close your eyes, and do it that way.


You always close your eyes? Ha, then do it with your eyes open. Watch what your partner is doing and how they react to everything around...

Jodi Thomas Betting the Rainbow

               Soon to be released April 1,2014: Betting the Rainbow


          Jodi Thomas takes the reader back to small-town Harmony, Texas, in Betting the Rainbow, where love is closer than you think, maybe even next door.  

      Ronny finally returns to Harmony after a year of grieving her lost love. She bonds with her taciturn neighbor, Austin. While both are hesitant to take a risk on love, their feelings for each other grow stronger with each moment together. 

      Dusti Delaney asks Kieran O'Toole to teach her to play poker so she can win money for her sister’s nursing tuition. Kieran is willing, but he also wants to teach her that true love can wait for the right moment because he’s waited years for his chance with her.  

      After years, Reagan hopes Noah will get the rodeo out of his system and come home to her. When she finds out he betrayed her, can he earn back her once steadfast love?

      Ms. Thomas charms the reader once again with her sweet, warm touch at contemporary romance. The three...

Putting the Sizzle in Romance

Ignite the Passion


It's easy to say you have a successful relationship when you have no children and have been married for 3 years. I have heard many, whom I would consider newlyweds, who have given advice on how to keep a marriage solid, how to keep the spark going. 

Please, ask someone's advice who has been married, with or without children, for at least ten years before you start listening to someone who has only been together a few years. Honestly, they may have had a few rough spots in their relationship but that is only the beginning. You have a looooooonnnnnnngggggg road ahead of you before you can claim success.

It takes work, innovation, imagination, and persistence, and just plain stubbornness, and hope, and faith, and so many other things that go along with never giving up. Now granted, there are some things that just are not acceptable in a marriage, that doesn't make a good successful relationship, but that is not where we are going today. 


Tips from Doctor Charley

Love starts with you. Write down ten things you love about yourself and why. Then share it with someone you know.
