Dear Letter Girl, I need to see you. When can we meet?
Her response never came. My secret pen pal with a dirty mind has ghosted me.
I’ve roped Jules, my sweet as pie next door neighbor, to help me track her
There’s only one problem—I’m falling for her. The tortoise shell glasses, out
of this world curves and delicious treats are making the search for The Letter
Girl even harder.
My notes were supposed to be a one time thing. A little too much wine and
naughty thoughts on a winter’s night. I never thought Berk would write back. I
wanted to tell him it was me, but the fear of rejection kept my lips sealed.
Now he’s enlisted my help to track down The Letter Girl and our search has him
hot on my, ahem, her trail.
She’s the girl next door.
He’s my secret pen pal.
Truth is on a collision course with their hearts and it’s only a matter of time
before one of them gets wrecked…
How can you lose someone you’ve never met? The
Letter Girl had careened into my life like a damn smash and grab pro
and wormed her way into my heart before I knew what happened.
She was everything I’d ever wanted in a girl. Hot as hell.
Smart and caring. The slow slide of the notes from X-rated to something more
caught me off guard, but she became someone I could talk to. Someone I could
share parts of myself that I didn’t share with other people. Even if she didn’t
know everything about my past, she knew more than most.
No one wanted to be sexy pen pals with a former foster kid
with almost no one in the whole world. Nah, that was for the college senior,
soon to be pro athlete.
Don’t ever let anyone see things bother you; I learned that
in foster home number four. If everything’s a joke, there’s nothing they can do
to hurt you, but losing TLG when I thought I’d finally found someone who knew me for me and actually gave a shit? That hurt. It was an
unexpected squeeze on my heart every so often that made it hard to
Jules slid her hand closer, herky-jerky like she was in a
stop motion animation movie before it finally landed on top of mine with a
gentle pat. “Is it really that important for you to find her?”
I shrugged. “Maybe not. She probably got tired of trying to
figure out my fucking chicken scratch.” I forced out a laugh through the
tightness in my chest.
“Once the season starts things will be crazy for you,
“You’re right. I guess I’m fixating because not much else is
going on.” No, this would always be a question I needed answered. Who
is TLG and
did all the things we’d written about mean as much to her as they meant to me?

Hughes, that’s me!, can often be found sneaking in another chapter while hiding
in the bathroom from her kids! 🙂 I’m a romance writer who loves taking inspiration from everyday life, namely my husband and biggest fan. Inspiration
also strikes when I hear a song, meet someone new or daydream while at soccer
writing stories that capture the possibilities of the paths less travelled and
enjoy experiencing life through my characters’ eyes.
I’m the mom
of three little ones, the wife to an amazing husband and also work full time.
Some of my favorite things are cupcakes, cinnamon rolls, white wine, laughing
until I can’t breathe, traveling with my family and Jeff Goldblum.
