Falling For You

By

 Michelle Ziegler

Blurb:

Darci’s ready to move on. Too bad the dating pool stinks.  Until, a ghost from her past resurfaces—the man she missed out on in college.

Andrew was the one man she’d always loved, but neither of them ever made a move.  But, old feelings aren’t the only thing resurfacing of late.  Darci’s ex comes crawling back at the most inappropriate time, and with all the testosterone flying, she might not end up with either man.

 

Excerpt:

Now, where is the chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream?

She pulled open the freezer door and a grin split her face. There, in the center, wedged between some frozen bagels and a pizza, was a container of pre-packaged stress-relief. Her heart actually skipped a beat as her fingers caressed the chilled cylinder.

Spooning out a huge chunk of heaven, Darci mulled over her recent life choices. She relaxed as the cold touched her mouth. Her eyes flicked over her new counter tops, the bag of shoes next to the door, her fat dog curled up on a chair, and she tried to remember why she’d felt the need to start dating again. She could be the dog lady. Perhaps tomorrow, she’d change her vision-board from “successful computer programmer, world traveler, wife, and mother”, to “own lots of dogs and eat frosting straight from the can”.

The trill of her phone pulled Darci from her musings. Leaning forward, she dug around in her purse. Her mouth clung to the spoon, still sucking off ice cream, determined nothing would interrupt her. She dug through her purse, pushed a half empty pack of gum, a few stray dollars, a Kleenex, two unpaid bills, a tampon, her car keys, and a fun size Kit-Kat to the side.

I’ll clean this thing out tomorrow. Oh, look, stamps.

The electronic leash vibrated again.

Her hand paused midair and, without thinking, she snatched the Kit-Kat before answering. “Hello?” Her tone was muffled by a cold, empty, spoon.

“Darci Alexander. You put down that pint right now,” said the shrill, angry voice of her best friend.

Abby knew Darci too well. She plucked the spoon from her mouth. “I don’t drink.”

“Seriously? I’m not referring to alcohol. You admitted yesterday you had two new friends, Ben and Jerry. You said the three of you had gotten really well acquainted the last few nights. I heard the spoon click against your teeth as you answered. Put it down.”

 

About Michelle Ziegler…

Michelle’s imagination started spilling out onto paper the second she could scribble.  Her drawing never improved, but her love affair with words continued and evolved as she became infatuated with one story after another.  If life could be written, Michelle would write everyone’s ending as a happily ever after.

Michelle grew up in Chicago and later moved to Colorado. Her husband still makes fun of her Midwest accent. By day, she is an engineer, wife, and mother to two kids and two dogs. Her sanity survives on the pages she writes, even if her toddler is trying to drive her to the edge one temper tantrum at a time.

Coffee and Cufflinks by Annabelle Blume

Fresh out of a failed relationship and exhausted by a constant barrage of fiascos at work, Olivia Johnson doesn’t see the man of her dreams standing right in front of her. She tells herself the morning coffee meet-ups with Daren are nothing but coincidence, but even she can’t deny his unequivocal attractiveness. When a night entertaining clients takes a turn for the worst, and Daren shows up where she least expects him, failure starts to look more like fate.

A Slippery Slope by Rebecca Hart

Anne Montgomery is psyched for her girl’s only weekend, despite her friends’ choice of vacation locale—the snowy slopes of Harris Peak Ski Resort—where someone as notoriously accident prone as she has no business being. When Murphy’s Law finally catches up with her, Anne is forced to consider there may be times when it pays to be unlucky.

The Shamrock Incident by London Saint James

Florist, Marissa Carmichael isn’t usually a klutz, but she’s in a hurry and having a bad day. In her haste, she loses her balance and tumbles from the back room of her shop, arms flailing. Her less than graceful entrance halted by a headfirst crash into a display case chock full of silk flowers.

Trey Cleary didn’t think his day could get any worse, until he finds. himself picking the side view mirror of his BMW up from the ground. On a mission to do something about it, he locates the flower shop matching the name on the back of the van that mangled his ‘baby’. But, his car is forgotten when a beautiful woman bursts into the room like an out of control whirling dervish, and takes one mother of a wipeout into the shop’s counter. Coming to her aid brings out the hero in him like no one he’s ever encountered, and leaves him with a need to know more.

For Marissa and Trey, this just might be the one time it pays to be unlucky.
