Her Secret Valentine part 2


Her Secret Valentine (A Craftie Ladies continuing Valentine Romance)
Today’s Installment by Terri Reed J
Nancy handed the list she’d complied to Shanna.  “That’s every guy I can think of who might—and I mean might with a big capital M--be interested enough to send me roses and candy.”
            And not just any candy.  Chocolate.  Good chocolate from one of her favorite chocolatiers.  Coincidence?
            “Ohhh, that’s a long list,” Shanna teased.  “A lot of frogs and no prince?”
Heat crept up Nancy’s neck.  “Its not that many.”
Shanna laughed.  “Maybe I’ll find my own secret admirer among these guys.”
            “You’re welcome to have this one.”  It wasn’t that Nancy was opposed to romance.  She hoped and prayed one day God would bring a man into her life.  A man willing to open his life fully to her.  A man not shy of commitment.  A man worth risking her heart on.
            She’d yet to find a man like that though she’d tried. 
After moving to Cupid’s Corner she’d joined the Christian Community Church’s singles group.  Amazing there were enough singles in a place with the name Cupid’s Corner to warrant a singles group.  But the beach community also brimmed with couples in love which gave her hope. 
            “What about Ted Spumoni?” Shanna pointed to his name on the list.  “Sweets are in his wheelhouse.”
            Ted owned the local ice cream parlor.  He did know she liked chocolate and gave her a free double scoop on a waffle cone whenever she stopped in.  She wasn’t sure he was the roses type, but who knew? 
They’d been paired on one outing to the bowling alley before Christmas.  Between the two of them they’d had more strikes than any other team.  He’d been fun and interesting and had asked for her phone number.  But he hadn’t called.    
Hmmm, maybe he was working up the nerve with the flowers and chocolate.
            Excitement trembled through her.   Looked like a trip to the ice cream parlor was on her agenda today.

Killer Competition

A champion ski jumper, Nick Walsh wants one thing: to win the gold for his late brother.  Nick has always blamed himself for his family's tragic loss--and so does everyone else.  To complicate things, sweet and shy reporter Julie Frost insists on doing a story about him.  But as Nick gets closer to achieving his dream, someone will do anything to stop him. Somehow, Nick must keep Julie from getting too close as they confront a threat that can destroy them both.  Julie and Nick are on the verge of discovering the truth about his brother's death...unless an unknown murderer finds them first.

  1. Oh, our first bachelor possibility. Spumoni, huh? And it's just the new year, so he could have gotten busy and not called.

  8. I'm loving this story already!
    And I have to *confess* that I ate part of a chocolate candy bar as I read. ;)
    Now...all I need is a vase of roses next to my computer, LOL.
