The Art of Getting Away
A Companion Short Story to The Art of Living Series
On the blind side of a curve, she’s stranded when her SUV dies.
Driving to a vacation he doesn’t want to take, Carlos barely avoids hitting her.
Getting her vehicle to start again is the easy part. The hard part is to stop thinking about the sassy girl with the blue-green eyes. Aw, hell. She would've forgotten him five minutes down the road after she’d stunned him with that thank-you kiss. Besides, the last thing he needs is to get his heart all twisted up over some woman. He’s supposed to be using his time off to come to grips with his own problems.
Until Carlos bumps into her again, then discovers the feisty beauty is in the cross hairs of the most violent motorcycle gang in the Midwest. He finds himself in way over his head when he tries to help her get away.
The Art of Living Series Book Duet (The Art of Going Home - available now, and The Art of Retribution - coming this fall) will have a companion short story!
The Art of Getting Away is approximately 10,000 words (about 25 pages), and will be published in an anthology called Stories of Sun, Sand and Sea: 11 beaches ~ Anything Can Happen. The anthology will be available June 28, 2016.
My short story features Carlos, the brother of the hero from the books, and a girl he meets while taking a vacation at the lake named Andi. When Carlos tries to protect her from an outlaw motorcycle gang, it's an adventure you won't want to miss!
