Check out these intriguing stories!
Walk It Off by Suzana Harcum and Owen White features Kat Drescher and Penny O'Neil who are eager to take their first holiday together after graduation, and counting on a grand romantic get-away to temporarily put off joining the real world and entering the workforce. They're not as prepared as they thought they were, however, when said holiday takes an unexpected turn— and the real world finds them first!
One Lucky Bride by Julia Hutchinson is a retelling of Buster Keaton's 1925 silent film "Seven Chances" in which Sara, a young entrepreneur on the verge of bankruptcy, discovers she is heir to a distant relative's fortune. The catch? She has to get married by 7:00 PM to collect the inheritance!
Under the Oak Trees by Sally Jane Thompson is a country mouse/city mouse romance that asks the question: Do different lives and different temperaments mean more pain than a relationship is worth?
The Only One by Cecil Castellucci, Sarah Winifred Searle, and Irene Koh is a tale of belated love that tells of a decades-spanning series of missed-connections that eventually lead to a cosmic love connection.
