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. We learned that he wasn't hurt, but was entering the witness protection program by faking his own death. 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.


The ambulance screeched to a halt outside the emergency room door. Since she felt so bad, it wasn’t much trouble to look miserable and scared. She grabbed Rocky’s hand and ran beside the stretcher as they entered the hospital, a hulking structure whose dark, ominous appearance made her heart race. Her blue spangled heels almost threw her down when the stretcher made a sharp right turn, but she managed to stay on her feet.

The ER was ready for them. Federal marshals dressed as nurses and doctors swarmed around the stretcher and whisked Rocky away while good ole Dave clamped down on her arm and refused to let her follow. All scripted of course.

Dave dragged her into a waiting room and shoved her into a green plastic chair a bit harder than Aimee felt he had to. He smirked at her over his shoulder as he left the room. His part in this charade was over. She sat in that hard chair with her heart in her throat for twenty minutes before Rich got there. To his credit, he did look worried about Rocky. “How is he?
