Karen’s Killer Book Bench: Wedding Vows, a Poem by Karen Docter

Merry Christmas to All of My Readers!

I hope your holidays are warm and you find some time to sit in your favorite chair and read to your heart’s content.

Since I write romance, it’s only natural that I’d get around to writing a poem about love and marriage. I took the Jingle Bells carol written by James Lord Pierpont and added my own spin. I  hope you enjoy my own little Christmas jingle. 🙂

Happy Holidays!  Karen

Wedding Vows
By Karen Docter

Dashing through the files
Looking for the perfect line
O’er the page we pore
Searching all the time
Words do sometimes bring
A smile, a sigh, a fight
A romance is a tender thing
To make things turn out right

Oh, wedding vows, wedding vows
This is what we say
Oh, what fun it is to love
That one man every day
Wedding vows, wedding vows
This is what we say
Oh, what fun it is to love
That one man every day

Our heroine just can’t see
What the hero has inside
Until we do reveal
The words he tries to hide
He may be buff and fine
A financial wiz at work
If we can’t find our line
He just sounds like a jerk

Oh, wedding vows, wedding vows
This is what we say
Oh, what fun it is to love
That one man every day
Wedding vows, wedding vows
This is what we say
Oh, what fun it is to love
That one man every day

So here we sit all day
Looking for the perfect line
That reveals a man’s true heart
A woman can’t decline
She’ll see the man beyond
The words he cannot say
We work to make their love
Turn out in just that way

Oh, wedding vows, wedding vows
This is what we say
Oh, what fun it is to love
That one man every day
Wedding vows, wedding vows
This is what we say
Oh, what fun it is to love
That one man every day, yeah!

catch_that_santaIt’s not too late to get your Christmas reading on! CATCH THAT SANTA is a romantic comedy novelette for only $.99. 

Blurb: When widow, Sara Marks, hears her Grams has gone on the lam from Happy Acres Residence on Christmas Eve – on Santa’s arm, no less — she teams up with sexy stranger, Francisco de la Vega, to chase the couple down with one thing in mind. Keep her Grams from becoming Mrs. Claus. Of course, Francisco’s grandfather is not really Santa Claus, but Grams did run off to Vegas to marry him and she’s obviously not in her right mind.

Sara leaves her seven-month-old baby, Lanie, with a friend and she and Cisco head west in the worst snowstorm in decades, chasing his grandfather’s ’57 Ford Fairlane over the river and through the woods.

Will they catch Santa and his crazy Mrs. Claus before it’s too late? Or will love stop them in their tracks?

To All of My Readers, THANK YOU and MERRY CHRISTMAS!!

      Thanks, Pamela. I appreciate that you stop by regularly. You’ll be happy to know that I’ve got a great start on my next book in the True Love In Uniform series. Aiming for a Valentine’s Day release.

      I just found out that the SEASON OF THRILLS BOX SET (which includes my romantic suspense novel, Killing Secrets, plus four more suspense novels) slipped into the #1 spot on Amazon ~ Crime Noir yesterday.

      A fabulous end to the year! 🙂

    A Very Merry Christmas to you and yours, Karen!

  3. Love this…the search for “those words” because sometimes actions are not quite sufficient.
    Merry Christmas to you and yours…:)
