With Valentine's Day right around the corner, now is the perfect time to
infuse some romance into your world! Lisa Shea has written three
different books to help you with every detail, from choosing flowers to
creating the perfect romantic meal and selecting the right music. The
books are from her Weddings & Courtships series, and offer fantastic tips,
recipes, toasts, quotes and much more from the romantic cultures of
Ireland, Italy and France.

Just what types of cheese go well with Champagne? What are the meanings of
various colors of roses? What secret test will tell you if your partner
will stay with you forever? Each of these three cultures is famous for its
tales of love and romance. Get the perfect Irish toast for your next
outing. Learn the tricks of French seduction. Find the meaning behind the
sugared almond treats found at every authentic Italian wedding. Whatever your romantic aim - to become closer to that cutie at work, to celebrate at an upcoming wedding, or to revitalize a long term relationship - these books provide the answers in a fun and informative collection.

The Weddings and Courtships books are being launched on Tuesday, January
23rd! As part of this launch celebration, we're having an Amazon special.
If you place your order for any of the three books on the 23rd, you can
take part in ALL special offers listed below! This could easily equal
hundreds of dollars in discounts. Be sure to check these websites out -
all are well known friends of Lisa, and she enthusiastically endorses their wares! These women are hand making each item they offer with great skill and talent.

Debi Gardiner designed the fantastic covers for the three Weddings &
Courtships books - covers which bring a smile to my face every time I

projects. I can't begin to express how incredibly talented this woman is with
graphics. Take a look through her website to see the plethora of logos she

scenes of women with musical instruments, animals, landscapes, and much
more that are beautifully vibrant. These are the types of paintings that
you stop at every time you pass them, to admire them. Turn your house
