Alright people… please refrain from pelting me with rotten fruit while I explain. I realize that this story has been stagnant for far too long. Let's just say that my personal life prevented me from writing during that time.

Oh, and as far as I'm concerned, 2010 never happened. So unless you want to see me foaming at the mouth, lifting my leg and barking like a dog… I wouldn't mention it in my presence. Ever.

Like Stephanie, I am totally happy to live in Denial-land. So, feel free to visit me here sometime. It's fabulous this time of year and I'll be sure to treat you with a Mojito and possibly (if you're lucky and I'm not feeling like a greedy bitch) a certain ravishing Cuban cabana boy ;)

Good news- I will continue and finish, Intentions of the Heart.

Bad news- In order to do so, I am completely revamping the entire story from start to finish. I lost touch with the story and needed to do so in order to finish it.

Soooo, if you are interested in following along with the new and improved version of I.O.T.H, you'll notice that it is now written in past tense, the dialogue has been re-worked and some juicy little tidbits have been added.

If not… well, that's fine. I have a filthy, lint-covered "cupcake" with your name on it ;) (Ha! Can I get an "AMEN", Babes?)

Kidding… sort of.

For those of you who reviewed my story during my extended stay at the Purgatory Hotelthank you. (Btw, the accommodations there definitely left something to be desired) I would have responded to each of you personally before now but in the mood I was in, it probably would have read like something out of the 'Exorcist'… and that would have just been awkward for everybody. Trust me.

Now, without further adieu, I bring to youIntentions of the Heat (Take-Two :)

Annnndddd… cue rotten fruit.
