First, Finally and Forever
The best parts of a romance are when emotional and physical connections collide. When two people meet, their first kiss, when they finally realize they love one another, and when a promise for forever is made.
Each mini-story in this anthology is a chance to experience that heady sensation when the attraction, longing, confession, or declaration happens.
What would you do to get back to the ones you love? How hard would you fight to escape?
This short story was written and submitted for consideration to a Wattpad Paid anthology, based on a provided prompt - "The one that got away".

A Royal Deception - Season 2
Being hired to trick the crown prince of Valandria into falling in love with her is maybe the last thing Chicago-born Edwina "Eddie" Shaw thought she'd be doing after losing her waitressing job. But when her hot as hell ex-boyfriend suddenly comes motorcycling back into her life, that's exactly what he hires her to do. The problem? No one warned her the prince had arms like a lumberjack and abs like a Greek god. No one warned her he had a sweet spot for rescue horses, a laughable inability to dance, and a wicked way with his hands. But Eddie WAS warned about one thing: her job is to make the prince fall in love with her, not to fall in love herself. Otherwise, breaking his heart might just mean breaking her own in the process...
