Book Tour & Giveaway (US/Int): Flirting With Danger author Claire Baxter on astrology and the signs of love

by davincikittieSeptember 22, 2013

Please help me welcome Claire Baxter to GraveTells today!

I’ve always been fascinated by astrology, but a little embarrassed to admit it. I think my fascination stems from the fact that every description I’ve ever read of the Taurean character fits me perfectly. I couldn’t possibly have been born under any other sign.

So this being the case, what about compatibility based on zodiac sign? I don’t know what to make of it. I certainly never checked my astrological compatibility with anyone I dated before I met my husband, but now I’m wondering…could there be something in it?

I have a book that I bought as research for characterization. It contains a section titled The Signs in Love, which is a summary of compatibility between all the possible combinations of sun signs. The author points out that a full comparison of star charts would be needed to really see the compatibility or otherwise of two people, but of course, I read the compatibility of Taurus with Libra (my husband), and I have to say, it is spot on.

So then I checked Taurus with other signs, those I can remember from my dating days, and guess what? Completely accurate descriptions of our relationships.

Even with this knowledge, I’m sure I would never go as far as to break up with someone because of their star sign.

Would you let a person’s sign influence you in choosing them over someone else? Or vice versa? Have you had a successful, long-term relationship with someone you shouldn’t be compatible with?

Now I’m off to share some Belgian chocolate with my hubby. The book says it’s our favorite way to spend an evening – and it’s right!

Flirting With Danger

To be together is dangerous. To stay apart is impossible.

Firefighter Jasmine Mackinnon has always just been one of the guys. So no one’s more shocked than she is to find herself kissing fellow firefighter and all-around sinfully handsome playboy Aaron Parkes after a friend’s wedding. Jasmine knows she can’t risk an emotional connection with a colleague—a potentially dangerous entanglement when fighting fires together—and nothing’s more important to her than her job.

Aaron never noticed how beautiful Jasmine was until he saw her out of her firefighter duds, but there’s something about the fiery woman that tempts him. Though he knows pursuing a real relationship is out of the question for a serial dater like him, when their casual flirtation builds into something more serious, it’s not just their jobs or their safety on the line. It’s their hearts.
