In this short story, the pressure of being a good mother, a victim of domestic violence, and a federal witness is getting to Mina.  Something has to give and there's a pretty good chance it will be her sanity.  Will she fall to pieces or does an aggressive pursuer help her adjust her attitude?

This is one of my favorite outtakes from the original draft of RUN.  I hope you love it too!

Thirty years ago Nancy had to make a choice.
She chose wrong.
Now, with her life feeling more than a little empty, all she can think about is that one wrong decision and how things could have been different.  And not just for her.
Paul's never gotten past the one night Nancy Richard's was almost his.  It's colored every relationship he's tried to have and every choice he's made.  Now she's been thrust back into his life by association and circumstance.
And he still can't bring himself to try to make her his.
Will the man Nancy hurt all those years ago find the strength to put his heart back on the line for her, or is she destined to spend the rest of her life wishing for what should have been?

Is the town asshole really as bad as they say?
Beth is trying to get her life back together after the death of her husband leaves her drowning in both his debts and his lies. Unfortunately, juggling motherhood and a full-time teaching job is feeling next to impossible. Her hands full, the only time Beth manages to take for herself is spent sneaking peeks out the window at the stupidly attractive farmhand her brother-in-law brought in to help run the family farm.
Don couldn't catch a break if it fell in his hand. He fought for everything he ever had and still managed to lose every bit of it. His job. His nice apartment. His reputation.
His self-respect. Now he's vowed never to push that hard to get anything again.
But when he sees Beth struggling in a way he finds all too familiar, Don can't stop himself from trying to save her from the same fate his mother endured, even at the risk of losing the only thing he has left. His heart.
Now he's faced with a choice. Walk away from the only person who has ever really seen him as he is or decide some things are worth fighting for.

Gertrude Miller is about to start a new life.  A normal life.  Hopefully a happy life.  But before that can happen, she has to finish one last job.  Things are going as well as can be expected, considering it requires her to be old man arm candy, until the night her ex-husband shows up to potentially ruin her life.  Again.

Will didn’t know what he was getting into when he agreed to help his friend recover some stolen jewelry.  It should have been a simple job, and it might have been, if it hadn't been for Tru.  She was the only woman he ever loved.  A woman he loved so much that five years ago he walked away from her, leaving Tru free to live the life she deserved.

Now she’s back, and putting herself in the middle of a dangerous situation, a spot he never wanted her to be again.  Unless they can find a way to work together, neither will leave with what they came for, maybe not even their lives. 
A happy twist inspired by a tragic favorite. Two feuding families, a set of star-crossed lovers, and enough tinsel to choke a reindeer.
Ellie Carroll just moved home after spending seven wonderful years on her own and far away from her overbearing and frequently overwhelming parents. Now they expect her to fix their failing business and go back to being the agreeable daughter they remember. Too bad Ellie’s not that same girl anymore.
Or is she?
