Stranded in Music City…alone on New Year’s Eve…in a freaking snowstorm. Is there a worse way to spend a holiday?
FBI Agent Alex MacGregor is on his way to his next assignment in Chicago, but the weather has other ideas. He’s holed up in a low-rent motel waiting for the weather to clear.
Enter a damsel in much distress. Bette Smithson is on her way out of town. Anywhere will do, as long as she can get away from a stalking ex-boyfriend. And for now “anywhere” is the last room in a low-rent motel with no heat and a leaking heater.
Should she accept her neighbor’s offer of a dry warm bed…or will she be making another in a long line of bad choices?
For the rest of the story, read BROKEN PROMISES, a full-length novel.
Marie-Nicole Ryan is a former professional student. She studied nursing and worked in that field for a very long time. She also studied and graduated with a degree in interior design which she seldom puts to use. Actually she really prefers the isolation involved in being a writer. She won an EPPIE in 2008 for her erotic romantic suspense Too Good to be True and was a finalist in the 2009 EPPIEs in mystery/suspense category. And if you think this short story could lead to a full-length book, you might be right. The rest of the story, BROKEN PROMISES, is now available.
