I have read a couple of ebooks published by Wild Horse Press such as Jessica Coulter Smith’s first book in her Ashton Grove Werewolves series called Moonlight Protector and her stand-alone novel Mangolia Magick through Manic Readers. So when Wild Horse Press contacted me to inquire if I accepted review requests from publishers and asked me if I would like to review Paige Warren’s short contemporary romance story I accepted. I love their website because it is so clean and easy to find everything you would like to know about their authors, books and submission guidelines and more. I might really consider submitting my manuscript to them if I ever get it finished and editing enough to fit their requirements for submission. Well onto the book review for Paige Warren’s short contemporary romance story that I will say right off I finished off in less than 6 hours after starting it. The story starts with the heroine, Fiona, who is tired of running because she’d made one stupid mistake, by the name of Garret. Garret is her ex-boyfriend who at the beginning of their relationship was a total gentleman who swept her off her feet but that all changed after he found out she was having his baby and they moved in together. Now she’s pregnant and on the run, then she collapses near a small town after she drove her wreck of a car off the road in order to miss hitting a dog. Lucky for her, a handsome man happens along and stops to help her instead of driving by like he didn’t see anything.
Aidan Forrest first notices the car on the side of the road and so when he gets closer and sees a woman slumped over the steering wheel, he rushes to check on her. Imagine his surprise when he sees that she’s pregnant but that doesn’t stop them from having an instant attraction to one another that neither of them asked for. So now fighting an attraction for his unexpected guest, Aidan wishes that Fiona would be more open with him because he knows that she’s in trouble after just one look into her haunted eyes they tell him that much. With Garrett on her trail, Fiona knows she can’t stay with Aidan for long, but oh how she wants to stay with him because being in his arms makes her feel safe, something she hasn’t felt in quite a while. I don’t read that many short stories because I feel that I don’t get to know the characters that well in such a short space of time but I couldn’t stop reading this short story because it was GREAT! It was a bit fast paced but I loved reading about Fiona who is such a strong and independent person even though she doesn’t feel like she is at first. I also really loved reading about Aidan who is a strong and handsome man who is so honest and a real gentleman. Paige Warren delivers a wonderfully romantic romance short story that will keep you reading from start to end. I’m not much into reading short stories but if I find more short stories like Paige Warren’s I might start reading more short stories. I give this book 4 Open Books:
