Saturday Sample: Fortuna

Welcome to Saturday Sample. Today I'll still be posting from Fortuna my romantic comedy. So far we know that Rocky has faked his death to enter the witness protection program. This scene is after Rocky's fake funeral. Aimee has gone home to Baltimore for a few weeks. She is thinking of how pleasant her life was now that all of the stress was gone when the phone rings.

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. 


“Since you won’t ask about my news, I’ll tell you,” Rocky said. “I’ve bought a house for us. Actually, it’s an estate. No, I guess it’s more of a farm. You’re speaking with the proud owner of two hundred fifty acres of prime West Virginia real estate. It’s just across the Virginia–West Virginia state line. And you’ll never guess what.”


“They say Benedict Arnold slept in the house.”

Benedict Arnold? Why not George Washington? Oh, wait. I’m
talking to Rocky.

“The house needs a little work, hon, but it’ll be real nice once
we finish it.”

Aimee sprang from her bed, unable to stay still any longer.
“How much work?”

“Oh, you know. Some.”

She shuddered. “Give me an address.”

It was time she saw what a resurrected Rocky had gotten them into.
