Kaylee

One night was all it took. One accident and I could no longer outrun my past. The terror I’d escaped was hot on my trail and the only person I could turn to was the man who’d hurt me the most.

Bad Blood in the Forest: The End of an Era

by PATRICK CAMPBELL

This is a story of a poor forestry community in England just after the war, as told semi-autobiographically by the author.
One might suppose that in the peace of the forest the workers would live a life of contentment. But their isolation and the never-changing band of men breeds mutual contempt in the end. This is heightened by one of the labourers, Gideon, joining the union and spreading his socialist ideas among the others, anathema to those who see nothing wrong with the old ways.
The forest bosses want the socialist out and need an excuse they can get past the union. It helps that Gideon is a drunk and a wife-beater and the story reaches a climax at the annual lunch for the workers given by the lord of the manor. A man dies, which seals Gideon’s fate.
It is a graphic tale of the sharp class divisions that existed in Britain at that time, especially as they affected men like Gideon, but the author also finds time to describe his own infatuation with a lady of the forest .



Flawed

by Claudia Burgoa

Hunter
Given a choice, I’d date a woman who doesn’t know who I am. Like the green-eyed woman I meet on sidewalk, tears streaming down her cheeks. The one who triggers what my overprotective older brothers call my “Everhart Complex”â??the uncontrollable urge to erase someone else’s pain.

This little character flaw could shred me if I let it. That’s why I don’t do family law. But it’s who I am. Who I became after my parents died.

Willow
Nothing says “successful adult” like living with my grandfather and having my little sister as my boss. But with my acting career stalled and my checking account in single digits, playing receptionist at Beesley Enterprises is a bearable humiliation.

Until he walks into the office. The man I met on the sidewalk on the worst night of my career. Mr. I’m-Going-To-Fix-Your-Lifeâ??as if I’d let him. Because just for a moment, I felt safe. I felt something besides numbness. And dammit, if I let my ice queen façade crack, I’ll be worse than back to square one. I could fall off the edge entirelyâ?¦
