From Florida With Love

Sunrise & Stormy Skies

by Southwest Florida Romance Writers

Sarah Andre, Karen Dean Benson, Patricia Campbell, Allan Dyen-Shapiro, Sonja Gunter, Mariah Lynne, Kerryn Reid, Dee Speers, Becca St. John & Kristine Taylor

Here in Southwest Florida, we know a lot about the power of hurricanes. They can be terrifying, destructive demons playing havoc with human lives.

We know a lot about the power of love, too. We know love can survive storms of all kinds, and these ten new stories from Southwest Florida Romance Writers prove it.

Here, love comes to rich and poor, young and old. It lurks on the beach, in town, and in Florida’s agricultural heartland. It might creep up on you, or it might strike with the power of a hurricane. Sometimes the hurricane arrives in disguise: a vintage motorcycle, a bucking bronco, a man’s name. Be surprised, be moved, be open to what comes after the storm. Because sometimes, out of devastation, come new beginnings. And the heart of each story is love. Don’t miss the first anthology from Southwest Florida Romance Writers, From Florida with Love: Sunsets & Happy Endings, also from Satin Romance…

The Crossroads by Sarah Andre
A probie firefighter surfs the post-hurricane waves to distract himself from the trauma of not being able to save his first victim. Among the tumultuous waves he meets a glamorous ER physician who thinks he’s a ‘playa’ until he saves her life. In return, she saves him from his psychological crossroads.

Charley the Hurricane by Karen Dean Benson
Disaster and dreams – oil and water.

This short story centers around the destruction of Charley the Hurricane that hit southern Florida with a bang in 2004. It’s about reaching out and fulfilling dreams. The irony of Charley’s devastation is hurricanes and wishes are thought to be mutually exclusive.

Just so you know, two things mutually exclusive are related in such a way that each one makes the other impossible. For example, a coin toss can’t land on both heads and tails; it’s mutually exclusive. This story is about disaster and billions of dollars lost in crops and homes. Yet, dreams did come true against a wasteland of destruction.

Land of the Fountain of Old by Patricia Campbell
It takes a Category 4 hurricane for light to dawn in Herschel Rosenbaum’s obstinate brain. When Dolly, his wife of over sixty years, gives up trying to talk sense into him, she takes the mandatory evacuation order seriously and leaves their house on Estero Island in their only car.

He’s left to contemplate his muleheaded refusal to believe the weather reports. He’s ridden out every hurricane for the past fifty years and knows their house can withstand whatever Mother Nature throws at it. Those weather dimwits are wrong most of the time anyhow.

She Tasted Salt by Allan Dyen-Shapiro
Homeless and forgotten, Shauna survives at the margins of society. Warnings of a hurricane coming to Fort Myers Beach miss her, and she hunkers down to brave the storm. A dolphin catches her eye, but when she refuses to wade out to meet him, he transforms into a man who promises to take her away from her lonely existence. Does she want what her prince promises?

Fast Lane Court Order by Sonja Gunter
What would you do if you were ordered to enjoy life? Keira Doyle takes her fellow lawyers joke to heart. Overhearing Grady Lynch, the bartender at The Veranda, talking about a benefit bike run. With the wheels in motion, she decides to participate on her vintage Hurricane motorcycle.
Not wanting to be in contempt of court, Keira takes a chance on a sunrise to bring new beginnings.

The Kaine Mutiny by Mariah Lynne
Matchmaker Sarah Stringer races against time to find the perfect woman for a tall dark handsome doctor. What’s so urgent? Will Sarah succeed? The answers will melt your heart.

Butterfly in a Hurricane by Kerryn Reid
A fragile young woman falls for the cop who spares her a speeding ticket. Unbelievably, he likes her, too. Can Type A and Type Z find happiness in the middle of the alphabet?

The Last Ride by Dee Speers
The last ride in life depends on how you’ve lived and loved. Sunrise Ranch is all Randall Scanlon cared about and fought to keep. He just knew his son felt the same. When his son, Casey, turns his back on the ranch for the rodeo, Randall told his son to leave and not come back. Casey never forgot or gave up on his family but was determined to live his life as he wanted. Now father and son will each face their last ride. Can the ranch and family survive?

Alone by Becca St. John
Jailbait, that’s how Lars had always seen Jessie, but now she is all grown up and as headstrong as ever. Much as he’d waited for this day, he didn’t expect it to come in the middle of a sting with Jesse in the cross-hairs of some nasty perpetrators. At the risk of everything, he has to get her free.

Love and Faith in a Hurricane by Kristine Taylor
National Guardsman, Jacob Lutz, escorted Ashley to a hurricane shelter at the local high school when a storm was approaching. As they get to know each other, Ashley finds her home totally destroyed. Her clothing store was spared. Her parents drove down from South Carolina and take an instant liking to Jacob. The couple start dating after the storm passes. On a hot air balloon ride, Jacob proposes to Ashley. Will she risk giving her heart to a new man?

Vintage Dreams

by Jannie Lund

Scott Sullivan has been sent on a not all together pleasant trip down memory lane to secure a location for a client. Sure, it may take some charm and convincing to get the owners to sell, but he’s up for the task. And then he’s getting the hell out of dodge to escape the memories. In and out, quick and painless, that’s the plan. He just hadn’t counted on running into a fiery and stunning obstacle with gold flecks in her eyes.

Danielle Harris has worked hard to make her dream come true. With her best friend, she owns a boutique where she sells the vintage style dresses she designs. When a city lawyer comes along and tries to ruin everything, her Italian temper flares.

With Scott trying to conduct a business deal and Danielle fighting for her dream, sparks fly. Not least sparks of attraction and perhaps love. It’s clear that one of them needs to give in, but the feelings of resistance are deep-rooted in them both.
