A romantic short story.

Cori Spencer doesn’t particularly mind being stuck in a refuge hut three feet above the rising tide in the middle of the night.

Overview

A romantic short story.

Cori Spencer doesn’t particularly mind being stuck in a refuge hut three feet above the rising tide in the middle of the night. She’s fallen in love with Lindisfarne, the tiny island off the north-east coast of England that’s isolated from the mainland by the sea twice a day. The problem is that she’s not alone. She’s stranded in a ten-by-four-foot wooden box for four hours with Ewan Macbeth, and that’s not going to end well. She’s either going to kill him or kiss him—and she’s not sure which option is the most likely.

Ewan flew back from the States when his sister told him Cori had become engaged to a man she didn’t love just to please her father. The Earl once threw Ewan out when he found him kissing his daughter, prompting her to end their relationship. Ewan’s never forgotten her, and even though he’s certain there can never be anything between them again, he’s damned if he’s going to let her marry a man who doesn’t appreciate her.

With only a bottle of Lindisfarne mead, a crab sandwich, and Angry Birds to keep them company, the two of them end up playing a game of Truth or Dare that forces Cori to accept the truth about her relationship with her fiancé, and Ewan to push her to the very limit to admit her feelings for him.

This sweet-ish short story contains some adult language and is therefore suitable for mature readers.

Short read - 46 pages, but just couldn't get into these characters enough to really care about their "dilema" or the ultimate outcome. She's temporarily stranded in a hut on the causeway due to high tide, with Ewan, the Scotsman she used to love, but abandoned when her well to do family didn't approve. She has a bottle of mead, a leftover crab sandwich, and a shortbread cookie which they share. He never stopped being in love with her, doesn't want to see her in a loveless marriage to Henry, the Earl. She's supposed to be a smart university trained geologist, independent in dress, but still gives in to her father's expectations. He's become successful in planning ad campaigns for world causes. They play angry birds, truth or dare with questions about their sexual experiences, and dance to music on her i-pad. Will she eventually realize she never stopped thinking of Ewan and doesn't want to marry Henry? Who cares? Obviously, this one wasn't my cup of tea.
