Free Fiction Monday: Inspiration

Cat’s love for John inspires the bestselling romances she writes. Her heroes and heroines experience what she cannot: John’s touch.

John, too, longs for Cat’s touch. Instead, he protects her. But protecting the living comes with risks. If he goes too far, he could lose her forever.

When Cat’s romance novels bring an uninvited guest to her door on Christmas Eve, the choices she and John make could finally allow them to consummate their relationship—or end their time together forever.
