I didn't know I had it in me. I wrote a light romance! It's a holiday-themed short story set on the 4th of July.
Department store magnate Clyde Anderson is a cool drink on a hot day and just being near her boss thrills Jonquil like 4th of July fireworks. Fantasies about her secret crush never featured them trapped together in a runaway elevator on America’s birthday, but Jonquil’s emotions always have had unpredictable effects on her surroundings. Her ingenuity and his courage are the perfect match against mechanical mayhem. Will the holiday’s unexpected adventure prove these partners-in-peril are perfectly matched for each other?
Happy 4th of July -- and that goes for all my friends outside the US, too!
