Toes, really? (Contest)
Sunday, August 22nd, 2021

UPDATE: The winner is…Gail Siuba!

I know, I know what you’re thinking. You’re going to talk about toes?

Well, I wasn’t. I was going to talk about how the summer is winding up quickly. Yes, it’s August and we’re still having really hot temperatures, but the days are shorter, and I can tell it by the temperature of the pool. Although we have 90-degree days, the pool temp is 85-88 degrees. Very comfortable, but in two or three weeks, I won’t be able to swim in the morning because I’ll have to wait for the pool to be its hottest in the late afternoon sun.

Anyways, I’m not going to talk about the waning summer. No, I pulled down a picture meant to start a conversation about the remaining lazy days of summer, and I found this one. The woman has gorgeous, soft-heeled feet, a pretty pedicure, but I got hung up on her second toe and that curved fourth toe. Now, don’t get me wrong. I would be happy to have feet that look that good. I have a huge hammer-like big toe and stumpy little toes. Because I’m barefoot Spring through Fall, I have thick calluses that the guy at the nail salon groans over when I walk in the door. He goes straight for the potato peeler to trim those hooves.

Still, that picture got me thinking about feet in romance. I realized I never talk about feet because what is there to say? Yes, I know some guys have feet fetishes. But I don’t write that. I couldn’t write a scene where a guy sucks on a toe because I remember from my far away (very, very far away) childhood what feet taste like.

So, the question for you today, should you choose to answer it for a chance to win a download of your choice from my huge backlist, is…are you as turned off by feet as I am? Do you have huge big toes and stumpy little toes? Long-ass second toes or callused hooves? Have fun with this!
