LOVING LINDY is sweet contemporary romance; part of the Magical Weddings box set. There are 15 stories in all; each with a different flavor to suit most readers tastes.
I'm thrilled to welcome my good friend, Jan Romes to tell us a little something about LOVING LINDY, part of the exciting box set coming June 16, MAGICAL WEDDINGS.
In every romance or love story there’s a certain kind of magic. Sometimes the enchantment isn’t so obvious. In LOVING LINDY it’s definitely not apparent. Lindy McPherson and Gunther Justin seem to have endless encounters regarding his dog, Bankston, who’s more of a backhoe than a dog. Bankston repeatedly tears up Lindy’s flowers and garden. There’s a constant wall of crankiness between Lindy and Gunther – until Gunther’s in a pinch and needs someone to pose as his fiancée. The bank he works for wants someone who’s “settled”. Gunther thinks he can bluff his way into the position with Lindy at his side. For reasons Lindy doesn’t quite understand, she agrees to be temporarily engaged. Everything is set to go off without a hitch but somehow real feelings get in the way.
There’s magic afoot in the midst of a ruse!
A snippet from LOVING LINDY:
“You destroyed my trash can!”
The familiar voice of the man she seemed to have continuous encounters with for one reason or another made Lindy’s head snap up and her pulse beat erratically.
Gunther Justin stood at the edge of the driveway glaring with his arms crossed and feet wide apart.
That was a defensive stance if Lindy had ever seen one. She didn’t have time for defensive stances. She especially didn’t have time to notice the navy blue stretch shorts and plain white tee that showed off Gunther’s muscular build. “The wind blew it into my path.”
“Brakes. They’re called brakes. Before you hit it you could’ve applied the brakes.”
“I’ll buy you a new one after I get off work.” Lindy picked up the obliterated plastic and carefully placed it in his yard. “I have to go or I’ll be late.”
Gunther said something under his breath Lindy couldn’t quite make out. If his expression was any indication, the comment couldn’t have been good.
It’s a trash can, for crying out loud; not a priceless artifact. Climbing back in the car, Lindy slammed the door. She looked in every direction at least three times and proceeded into the roadway before speeding down Birch Street.
Thrumming the steering wheel when she had to stop for the red light at Walnut Street, Lindy thought about why she and Gunther kept crossing paths. She wholeheartedly believed you encountered people for a reason. Was he one of those tests a person got from time to time to make you aware of your strengths and weaknesses?
