I wrote this little story a while back, but it’s been sitting there. As a birthday present to me, I’ve decided that it should be put out on Amazon.
Mitch never knew what awaited him when he answered his elderly neighbour’s calls. Finding a stranger crying in her backyard was a new one. Little did he know that rescuing Elijah out of the rain was going to change his life.
Elijah is too young, too good looking, and too bruised for Mitch to consider falling in love with. But Elijah is soon in his house, in his bed, and in his heart.
At thirty-eight, Mitch has a lot of experience with life. Elijah is only twenty-three and just starting out. Mitch’s bedroom skills enrapture Elijah. Mitch just hopes it will be enough to make Elijah want to stay.

I wrote this story months ago for an anthology, but then decided it didn't fit the parameters of the submission call. It's a short story - a little over 10,000 words. I wondered what I should do with it. Then someone said, "Why don't you self-publish it?" I was nervous, but agreed.
I therefore had it edited, and then a cover made by the wonderful Bawd Designs. This is an Australian piece of work - LOL. Written, beta'd, edited and designed by Aussie women. (OK - my proofer wasn't Australian... didn't quite make it tru-blu).
I want to thank them all for their help: thanks ladies. Thanks for urging me on. Thanks for the encouragement, the nagging and the corrections.
It's taken me over a month to get the courage to press that final "submit" button. Courage, thy name is not Renae.
I hope you all enjoy.
