Love is...post from author TL Reeve and CONTEST

What is love?
I could say, love, is love, is love, is love… but what does that actually mean? You can love food, or movies or television shows. There’s love at first sight. Second chance love. Love that transcends time and space. But, what does love mean?
I’m reminded of the little comic that says; Love is… people always answer with practical answers, or the obvious ones. Love is; doing the dishes for your spouse. Love is; going on a surprise hike with your significant other. Or breakfast in bed. An unexpected date night or a simple hug.
I think love is bigger.
To me love is not only an emotion. It’s a state of mind. It’s that all encompassing feeling of warmth and brightness. Love can’t be explained. Love can’t be shoved into a box and said this is what love is. It can’t be bought. It can’t be sold. And, most of all, love is unique for the individual person who feels it.
Love is gained and lost. Love is epic and miniscule.
Love is love, is love, is love, is love.
For writers, it’s the journey to finding that bright moment where the realization dawns on the character, they can’t live without the other person. That they have been so engrained with their partner’s personality, their quirks and their conversations, that taking it away, makes their life seem a little grayer and a heck of a lot less enjoyable.
For my characters, love comes in every color of the rainbow. Whether it’s m/m or f/f or even m/f or any combination of the couple within a ménage, they find commonality for all, and the purest form of love.
So, what is love for you, dear reader?,  tells us in the comment section below. Please be sure to include your email to be entered in the contest. All winners will be drawn Jan, 1st.

Oracle’s Vision Blurb:
Amanda Culter needs a time out. After spending much of her life on the run with no one believing her, she's committed the ultimate fuck up. She allowed her friends and unit to walk into a trap, killing three and hurting her best friend, Ben Kogan. With the orders to recharge and gain the ability to trust those around her, she heads to Wiccan Haus, hoping they can figure out what happens next. She never expected to meet a polar bear with a surly disposition or an oracle. Nor was she expecting either of them to be her mates.
A change is coming.
Niamh Laleh, Oracle and green witch, is happily mated to the man who stole her heart over seventy years ago. But when a vision of a sad, distraught Auburn haired woman fills her dreams night after night, she knows what she has to do.
Arcades Bennett knows not to question his mate's visions and when she says she must go to a place called Wiccan Haus and seek out the woman in her dreams, he agrees. What he isn't prepared for is finding a second mate.
Resisting the pull grows impossible as their friendship blossoms, but when push comes to shove, can he seal all three of them, or will Amanda slip right through their fingers?

Bear Essentials Blurb:
Roxy Stamford has been a lone bear for all of her life. But, on her twenty-fourth birthday, things are about to change. A letter from her mother, and a picture, send her on an adventure of epic proportions.

Juneau Baxter isn't looking for a mate. As a security member for Wiccan Haus, his job always comes first—until the day he meets Roxy Stamford. From the get go, the little bear turns his world upside down. Her ambivalent attitude is a cover, though. He’s sure of it, but what she's up to, he has no clue.

With the days slowly ticking away, Roxy is desperate to find the man in the picture while trying to avoid Juneau who rubs her the wrong way while also drawing her in. When a chance encounter leaves her pissed off and angry, strange things are put into motion.

Now, with time running out, she has to face her fears and acknowledge her pain. But, she's not sure who to trust. Juneau, who promises her nothing. or the vampire who promises her the sweet relief of revenge.

One wrong move could cost her everything.
