Living in Nashville with his daughter, Katelyn, single dad Derrick Collins’s main goal is to provide a good life for his daughter. With no social life to speak of, he knows it’s time for a change. He just needs to find the perfect woman who will complete his happy family. The problem is he’s already met her and let her go.

Mary Jane Evans’s life took a path she could only dream of. Though leaving her home in Nashville meant saying goodbye to childhood friends, family, and the first man she ever loved. Now she has to choose if she will return or continue her new journey.

With a decision to make, is it possible for two lost loves to find their way back to each other or are there too many curves in the road?



Most people fall in love several times over a lifetime, but one always sticks out more than others, whether you end up with them or they are the one who got away.

When I was five, I thought I was in love with my best friend, Jimmy, who lived next door. That changed when he fed my favorite Barbie doll to the dog, breaking my heart. When I was ten, I fell for my schoolmate Robbie when he helped me up after someone pushed me into the mud. My heart later shattered when my dad told me we were moving to the big city of Nashville from our small backwoods town in Kentucky, and I had to say goodbye to him. At fifteen, I fell for Marcus Jacobs, the smartest guy in school. He was our valedictorian, and I never told him how I felt. He “came out of the closet” after high school. And then I turned twenty-one and met Derrick Collins.

Derrick was the guy who made me realize that I’d never known love before I met him. Reading about toes-tingling, heart-stopping kisses, and romantic gestures, I always questioned whether such things existed. My lifelong question was answered the first time we kissed, and I felt it course through my body from my lips straight to my toes with electric pulses racing everywhere in between.

Growing up, I always had an issue with weight and never felt comfortable with the opposite sex. Puberty hit and my waistline expanded more than my breasts. Luckily, I had a growth spurt around sixteen. I was taller than average, five eight to be exact, with blonde hair and light green eyes, with that I was happy. My pants size was a different story. My hips were curvy, and my breasts caught up to them, although they didn’t point forward as much as my hips pointed outward.

With friends like mine who built my confidence every day, I thought I knew what it meant to feel beautiful. It wasn’t until the day I felt Derrick’s undeniable passion for me that I truly felt like the goddess Cameron always tried to convince me I was. I’d tried every diet known to man to be skinny; it just was not in the cards for me, and I’d come to terms with that fact. My body may not have been perfect, but I ate right, and I wasn’t lazy. It was just my luck I had a crappy metabolism that allowed me to maintain a softer, slightly rounder stomach. Did it frustrate me? Yes. I would’ve loved to be one of those women who ate anything they wanted and never gained a pound. However, life didn’t deal me that hand, and I’d become content with myself.

It’s true that having a boyfriend wasn’t the most important thing in life, but it sure was nice. I loved my time with Derrick. I didn’t need him to make me happy; I wanted it. Derrick made the sky bluer, chocolate taste sweeter, and the sun shine brighter, at least it seemed that way with him in my life. Prince Charming had nothing on this man. At times I became discouraged, but Derrick was there to make me laugh. Other than Cameron, no other man had told me I was beautiful in a way that made me believe it. He was practically perfect in every way, like a male version of Mary Poppins. Wow, that wasn’t sexy I guess, but if Derrick was one thing for sure, it was sexy.

The Parker Harris Flash Fiction Series
                                  The Shifting Potion                                 

“It’s that time of the month again.” Jackie’s words made Mitchell cringe. He covered his ears and started making ‘la,la,la’ noises to drown her out. She smacked his arm and said, “Full moon, ding dong. Not the other thing.”
“I know. Why do you think I was blocking it from my mind?” He placed his arms around her waist and pulled her closer until their noses touched. “Two nights without you in my arms is torture. And Quinn is very grouchy when Parker is gone too. He’s a terrible snuggler.” Jackie laughed as she pushed up on her toes to give him a kiss.
“You’ll have plenty to keep you company. Amytha runs Quinn ragged. She’s six going on seventeen. And then there’s Charisma who is always needing help with Crispin. Besides, this is a monthly gig, nothing new.”
Parker and Jackie had made shifting a girl’s weekend away the year after they got married to Quinn and Mitchell respectively. When the full moon came, they whisked away to Quinn’s old cabin for the weekend. At night, they shifted and ran through the woods. During the day, they shared margaritas and bonded over girl talk.
For the rest of their lives they’d be shifting once a month until they could both learn to control it. It had been a work in progress, but they were getting somewhere. During the past month, Parker stalled her shift for an entire night. Neither of them had told the guys because they didn’t want to get their hopes up until they were sure they could both control it for the entire cycle.  
“What do you two talk about anyway? How irresistible I am?” Mitchell’s ego had not subsided any with marriage.
Rolling her eyes, Jackie gushed, “Yes. We can’t find anything else to talk about other than how adorable and wonderful and – “
“Drop dead gorgeous. I figured.” Jackie laughed and kissed him again. She didn’t need to argue with him, it was futile and he wasn’t wrong.

***
Parker arrived at the cabin with Quinn beside her. She arranged to get there a little earlier than Jackie because she had a surprise she wanted to put together. “Don’t forget we promised Amytha she could go to the zoo since she did so well on her spelling test last week. And invite Crispin to go with you guys. He loves the tigers. Oh and – “ Her list of honey-do items was interrupted by Quinn’s lips smashing against hers.
“I have this parenting thing under control. Three balanced meals a day. I feed her ice cream, cookies and any chocolate she wants just before bed every night. Also, we only play with knives in the kitchen and we jump up and down with them only, never run.”
“Ha ha.” Parker had complete faith in Quinn, he was a better father than she could’ve ever imagined. They only adopted Amytha a year ago but you’d have thought they’d had her forever. “I hate being away from her for even a minute.”
“She’ll be fine. And in two days you’ll be back home and we’ll have our usual welcome home dinner waiting.” Quinn’s lips brushed against Parker’s. “I love you.” Placing his arms around her waist, his hands dropped down to cup her butt as he lifted her up in the air. She wrapped her legs around his waist and grinned as they continued their kiss.
“Get a room!” Mitchell and Jackie said in unison as they came into the cabin.
Parker’s feet dropped back to floor. “Sorry.” The men arranged the bags while Parker pulled Jackie to the side. Whispering softly, she said, “Charisma gave me a potion to use. We’re going to test it tonight on you to see if it can control your shifting. It’s supposed to relax your body to the point it doesn’t shift. If it works on you tonight, we can start using it each month.”
Jackie whispered back, “Why me? Shouldn’t we try it on you since you’ve been successful with not shifting.”
“That’s the point. You haven’t been so if it works on you, then it will work on both of us. I didn’t tell Quinn or Mitchell because I don’t want to get their hopes up.”
Saying goodbye was always a long process between the couples. They’d kiss and repeat the ‘I love you’s’ until one gender finally said goodbye. On this night, the females let go first pushing them out the door.
           
***

“You drink this and according to Chari it works in less than thirty minutes. I’m going to set up this video camera to record in case I can’t restrict my shifting tonight. Are you ready?”
“As ready as I’ll ever be. The worst that could happen is it doesn’t work and I shift.” An hour later they were still staring at each other. The full moon had emerged from behind the clouds but neither of them had shifted. It seemed the potion worked.
“You know what this means for me?” Jackie asked, her voice breaking with the fear of saying what she felt out loud. Parker shook her head. “It means Mitchell and I can consider adoption now.” Before Parker could ask, Jackie elaborated. “Before, I was scared. I know you do motherhood well, but with the shift in the way I didn’t want to take on the extra responsibility. Now, we have a chance to be normal parents.”
“Well, supernatural abilities aside, none of us have ever been normal.” They laughed for a few moments enjoying the peacefulness of the full moon without pain.
Now all they would need to do was try again the next night to be sure before they filled the guys in. Parker gave Jackie a thumbs up and together they shed a tear with the hope they could put their painful shifting days in the past and regain as much of a normal life as possible.

This wasn’t how it was supposed to be….

They met at a wedding, Todd the only man wearing jeans, Jessica the beauty with a troubled background. Settled into married life after falling in love, they have so many things left to do in life. They think they have so much time… until Jessica and Todd’s average married life comes to a halt on a snowy back road. When their truck careens down an embankment, they find themselves in a life-or-death situation. With rescue seeming impossible, they cling to the only hope they have left: their love for each other.

As they fight for survival, their connection carries them through the biggest challenge of their lives. Memories and regrets swirl around the couple as they finally take a moment to reflect on what they’re doing in life.

There’s one big, icy question that haunts them, though: Is this where their story will end?



Together, they were a functioning but crazy couple, living in the adult world of responsibility but straying from the normal every now and then to experience life to the fullest.

Together, they could get through anything. She had to cling to that.

She perked up at the thought of having some temporary relief from the cold as Todd wriggled to get closer to the driver seat, being careful to not jiggle his leg too much. He reached over to the keys, turning it with a whispered “Please.”

Nothing happened.

“Shit.” He slammed the dashboard in frustration. His temper was always one of his flaws.

“Let me try,” she uttered, reaching for the key in his hand.

“It’s not working.”

“Move.”

She shoved him away, trying the key herself, whispering “Please.” If her toes weren’t so damn cold, she’d cross them all in hopes of the engine coming to life.

She turned the key and laughed at her luck. The engine chugged to life.

“Wrong again,” she gloated, a huge grin on her face.

“You know, I should push you out in the snow.”

The smile stifled itself at his words, even as the sound of the engine underscored her hope, emphasized the soon-to-be warmth that would be theirs.

She didn’t respond to his statement, lost in her own bout of regrets and guilt.

 “Jess?” he asked finally, concern in his voice.

She warmed her hands in front of the heater. It already felt heavenly, even though it wasn’t even close to being completely warm. Finally, she responded in a disconsolate voice, “Probably should. This is my fault.”

“Hey, stop it. Don’t blame yourself.” He put a hand on her arm, shaking her a bit.

“If I’d listened….”

“We might still have ended up here, or worse. Things could be worse. We could’ve hit a tree head-on. By some luck, we landed right between them. It’s all okay. It’s all going to work out.” He, too, rubbed his hands in front of the heater.

“I love you,” she whispered, still feeling guilty, still not quite believing him. This was her fault. She’d messed up, big-time. Who knew what price they’d pay for it.

“I love you too.”

She smiled again, leaning against him as she basked in the warmth of the heat radiating through her fingers. They sat, wordless, reveling in the simple but heavenly feeling.

Todd interrupted the silence a few moments later. “You do know, when we get out of this, I’m never letting you live this down.”

She groaned, shaking her head as she pulled away from him. “You just said it’s not my fault.”

“Of course I did. Because right now, I can’t blame you or I look like a dick. Later, though, oh man, is this going to be a great addition to my amateur comedic stand-up at parties.”

A high school English teacher, an author, and a fan of anything pink and/or glittery, Lindsay's the English teacher cliché; she love cats, reading, Shakespeare, and Poe.

She currently lives in her hometown with her husband, Chad (her junior high sweetheart); their cats, Arya, Amelia, Alice, and Bob; and their Mastiff, Henry.

Lindsay's goal with her writing is to show the power of love and the beauty of life while also instilling a true sense of realism in her work. Some reviewers have noted that her books are not the “typical romance.” With her novels coming from a place of honesty, Lindsay examines the difficult questions, looks at the tough emotions, and paints the pictures that are sometimes difficult to look at. She wants her fiction to resonate with readers as realistic, poetic, and powerful. Lindsay wants women readers to be able to say, “I see myself in that novel.” She wants to speak to the modern woman’s experience while also bringing a twist of something new and exciting. Her aim is for readers to say, “That could happen,” or “I feel like the characters are real.” That’s how she knows she's done her job.

Lindsay's hope is that by becoming a published author, she can inspire some of her students and other aspiring writers to pursue their own passions. She wants them to see that any dream can be attained and publishing a novel isn’t out of the realm of possibility.

The responsible brother, John Callaway, spends most of his days locked away in his office, crunching numbers and placing orders. When a mysterious brunette rolls into town, he is immediately drawn to her. For a year, John has worked hard at earning her trust, hoping one day she’ll lower her walls enough to let him in.

Finally finding a home in Montana, Abby Johnson is the happiest she’s ever been working at the diner and spending time with the one person who’s shown her that good men exist. When her past catches up with her, Abby will have to trust the man she’s grown to care for to keep her safe, or she’ll risk losing everything.

Will her secret push John away or will Abby realize that love is always worth fighting for?



“I have to agree with Cole. From what I’ve seen these last few months, you do spend a lot of time locked away in there.” Her voice sent shivers down his spine. For such a little woman, she sure did have a big impact on his body and his heart. He turned his head and looked up at her. God, she was so beautiful smiling down at him.

“See, women are always right. Listen to Abby if you won’t listen to us.” Nick winked at Abby, and John fought the urge to punch his brother. The more time he spent with her, the more he found himself protective of her. He knew his brother wouldn’t make a move on Abby, but he couldn’t control the urge to knock out every man who looked at her.

“What did I just get in the middle of?” She looked so adorable between the four of them, smiling and slightly confused.

He just shook his head. “Nothing important. How are you?” he asked, hoping to change the subject before his brothers took it upon themselves to embarrass him.

She pushed a stray strand of her hair back behind her ear, and he couldn’t tear his eyes away. “I’m okay. How are you?”

“Busy, but good. Nothing to complain about.” It was the truth. Life was good. It hadn’t always been like that. Like every other family who depended on ranching, rough times were part of the deal. To run a ranch was an unpredictable business, and in the blink of an eye, it could all disappear. But at that moment, they were doing well and diversifying their revenue sources. He couldn’t ask for more.

“Good. So, are you guys having your usual?” One thing about small towns, everyone knew everything, including your food order.

“We are men of habit after all.” Nick charmed his way into the conversation.

She smiled at them, and God, John swore the gates to heaven opened. “All right, I’ll put the order in. Drew, I’ll tell Amanda you’re here. She’s been waiting for you.”

The smile on his brother’s face at the mention of his wife’s name could only be described as that of a man in love. “She can’t get enough of me. Thanks, darling.”

John looked up at Abby. “What time does your shift end?”

“Around three.” She was still so shy around him, and he loved it. It meant he had to work extra hard to get through her barriers, and if he was good at one thing, working hard was it.

“I’ll pick you up, and we can go look at those bed frames if you want.” He chose to ignore Nick’s snickering.

“That sounds perfect, thank you, John.” Every time someone asked him why he spent so much time with Abby, he wished they could see her face this very moment. That look was why he did it. He nodded silently and watched her leave, unable to tear his eyes away. Abby had curves in all right the places, and her hips had featured in more than one fantasy.

Kaithlin Shepherd is the author of The Callaway Series, The Brass Series and The Saints and Sinners series. 

Born and raised in Canada by a working single mom and a loving grandmother, Kaithlin surrounded herself with novels by Danielle Steele and Nora Roberts provided by her grandmother. Kaithlin quickly fell in love with reading. It was in high school, thanks to an English teacher, that Kaithlin wrote her first story (although if you ask for it, she will deny ever writing it) about a popular boy band. Inspired by constructive criticism, Kaithlin spent some time developing her love affair with words through more reading than someone would think possible.

After pursuing a higher education, Kaithlin sat down with a pen and paper and decided to give writing a shot. With no false hope in mind, her first novel, Make Me Whole, slowly came to life. Putting fear and doubt aside, Kaithlin has published five books to date, and has eleven more set to be published in the next two years.

Fueled by coffee and a wild imagination, Kaithlin spends her days working her day job (we’ll leave you wondering) and her nights writing love stories with a little side of sexiness.
