For Refreshment Only Sunday (FROS) knows that we’re busy, busy people, and that there are times when we don’t have time for a full four-course romance meal, and only have time for a refreshing romantic snack.
Fortunately, a lot can happen in a short time.
This week, Suzanne Enoch, Christie Ridgway and I released three short stories for your reading pleasure. They are our version of the Romantic Quickie – fast and fun reading for those days when you’re in a hurry. They’re part of the new Lunch Hour Love Stories website built by a group of romance authors for the busy reader on the go.
When I read about dashing Geoffrey Kerick, the Earl of Vashton, I kept seeing this:
Suzanne’s story is sweet and romantic, and it made me grin from ear to ear. It was the perfect length for a bathtub soak, too. (How did I read an ebook in the tub, you ask? By putting my iPad Mini in a ziploc bag and making sure it was tightly shut. Voila, waterproof!)
Christie Ridgway’s story, SNOW JOB, is described as fun and flirty, which are exactly the words I’d use, too. SNOW JOB is a delcious and quick read, and I devoured it while my son drove us to the beach and it made the time pass super quickly.
Pretty hot for a man who sells ice and snow for a living!
And finally, we have my romance quickie, THE LADY OF THE TOWER, which I co-authored with my lovely critique partner, Holly Crawford. It’s a fast-paced story that will (hopefully) leave you breathless and grinning.
Here’s what I picture when I think about the hero, dark and sensual Sir Richard Thornton. Forgive the 15 second ad at the beginning; I couldn’t find the video without one.
(Btw, this guys ROCKS his Regency look.)
Happy quickie FROS, m’dears. May your week be blessed with meaningful glances, fast conclusions, and quick satisfaction!
