Saturday Sample: Fortuna

Welcome to Saturday Sample. I'm sharing excerpts from my romantic fantasy Fortuna. We're picking up today where we left off last week. Rocky a WWE style wrestler has gone into the ring to wrestle another man name Cade McCoy. Aimee is watching the action from the side of the ring when Cade slips under the ring ropes and grabs a chair and smashes it on Rocky who goes down and doesn't move. They call paramedics who take him out on a stretcher. In the ambulance, Rocky asks if it's safe to sit up and he does. Today they're still in the ambulance. Don't forget that most of the scenes in the book were based on real life events.

Aimee Sherwood never dreamed that following her fiancĂ© into the witness protection pro-gram would land her in a haunted house in a town that’s downright creepy. She’d have laughed if she had been told the guy who lives down the road might be her soul mate, not the man whose ring she’s wearing. Life in West Virginia is nothing like life in Los Angeles, but between bean ball battles with Marilyn Monroe, remodeling a crumbling farmhouse, and starting a new online business, life in the country is anything but boring.

“You got a lot more than towels, didn’t you?” Aimee took deep breaths to calm herself and blew out hard. What was wrong with everyone? Didn’t they know what a precarious situation Rocky had landed them in?

Dave glowered into the mirror. “You should be glad Rocky was willing to testify in court. Thanks to him that scum Brady Porter is off the streets.”

For an answer, Aimee pounded Rocky’s pillow, missing his head by inches. “Oh, yeah. I should be glad my fiancĂ© had to fake his own death and enter the witness protection program. I especially should be glad that if I want to marry him, I’ll have to disappear too.”

“Life’s not a beach. Get over it. ”Dave’s unoriginal, snarky answer did nothing to quell her anger. At least you have the option of keeping your identity if you choose.”

“Why, you ...”

Dave’s loud voice overrode hers. “I see the hospital. Look panicked, ma’am, if you can.”
