Is the Second Time as Special?


Peter Cottontail left me an Easter Egg in my email in-box that I didn't see until this morning--a contract offer from The Wild Rose Press for my second short story, Martial Hearts.

Austin Li, Kenpo Karate instructor and first-degree black belt, is everybody's favorite. Gregarious and talented, he’s as popular with adult students as with the kids he teaches. After a hot day at the karate school’s annual picnic, shy nurse April is anxious to get him alone. If she risks rejection and wrestles Austin to the mat, will she be defeated by disappointment or stand victorious in love?

Look for this story in the Sweetheart Rose catalogue later this year.
