A Christmas Affair
(Ransom Canyon Novella)
Often when I write a book there is a story that I didn’t have time to tell. A person who didn’t get their happy ever after ending. Maria, Dakota’s sister in INDIGO LAKE, was that person.
I wanted to see her with her own story. The fact that she is blind is only a part of the story. For one time, one moment, she wants to feel alive. She sets out to make her dream come true. In her mind she can’t see forever, but she’s daydreamed of having an affair with the kind storekeeper she talks to every week. Since her accident she’s never felt fully alive, so she decides to give herself a gift for Christmas. An affair with Wes Whitman.
Even if it only lasts one night, she’ll have a memory to keep. Only, he wants far more. Wes wants forever.
Winner is Bridget!
