You can enter multiple times. See details below, but first check out the cover blurb for KISS OF THE ROSE:

Desperate to defeat King Richard III and gain the crown, Henry Tudor made a pact with the Druids binding him and his heirs to the Druids' struggle against vampires. Ever since, the Llewellyns, a vampire- slaying family, have been in the king's employ. Now Henry VIII reigns, and his father's bargain has been almost forgotten-until bloodless corpses turn up in the king's bedchamber. To save the king, Vampire hunter Rosalind Llewellyn must form an uneasy alliance with Druid slayer Sir Christopher Ellis. But soon, Rosalind must face an unthinkable truth: that her sworn enemy may be her soulmate...

The punk-industrial fetishist in me says a tongue piercing makes the perfect kiss.

You're out on the boardwalk (or at some other cheesy date location that, normally, you would laugh about being taken to. But this is "the one," and you're tickled pink that he thought of taking you there all by himself). You've been fretting the entire time: why isn't he walking closer to me? Does my breath stink of garlic bread? Do I have a piece of parsley stuck between my teeth? DOES THIS DRESS MAKE ME LOOK FAT?!

Distracted, you don't notice when he turns in, grabs you by the chin, and descends. You're definitely not prepared. Oh gods, what's he doing?!

The two of you clonk heads before your lips even touch.

...nobody said it had to be a successful kiss to be perfect. In fact, sometimes the imperfect first attempts are what we remember above all the rest ;)

Hours of anticipation, the brick wall he backs her up into when it's so good he just can't stop--and then tongue of course! :-)

What makes the perfect first kiss? Wanting it so bad your bones are shaking.

What makes the perfect kiss? Knowing that your underwear matches, so it's safe to let him in for a night cap.

What makes the perfect first kiss? Tic tacs. Especially after he orders the linguine with clam sauce >.<

Anticipation and tongue. Loads of tongue. Which probably makes my ideal man a really hard to catch frog, but there you go.

Congrats on the release, Kate! It looks orsum, as ever.

Getting it from the right person makes the perfect kiss.

Lots of quivery, bated-breath, internal freak-out moments beforehand.

I think Kevin Costner in Bull Durham had the perfect answer to this question, "I believe in long, slow deep, soft kisses that last for three days". Although I do think if there is deep feeling there it makes a differents!

The perfect first kiss: When you're pretty dang sure it will send an electrical storm through your body...and it does! Mm...

I posted on Twitter...and now for here. A first kiss should be sensual, but sweet, and should always leave you wanting more. :D

A combination of tension, anticipation and a lot of chemistry.

A romantic setting, passionate build up, having good chemistry, skillful technique and fresh breath make for the perfect first kiss.
