Signed, SEALed, Delivered... I'm Yours
Short Story in SEAL of My Dreams Anthology
By Christie Ridgway
Bell Bridge Books - 2011
Mandy Warner had wanted to spend Thanksgiving with her only family, her uncle who worked for the US Foreign Service. Unfortunately, rebels had attacked, and Mandy found herself hiding in the basement of his home.
Suddenly, she wasn't alone. Thankfully, it wasn't a rebel. It was a SEAL. With Josh there, she felt safer, but they couldn't leave immediately. So they sat, and talked, and with each moment, a bond built pulling them closer. But Mandy had to face reality and be fair to Josh. Josh was a SEAL, and she needed someone who would come home to her every night.
Signed, SEALed, Delivered... I'm Yours starts with a blast and finishes with a sigh. Josh is Mandy's hero, in every way but one. I loved watching the attraction slowly unfold. Their relationship is poignant, and sad, but Christie Ridgway delivers a believable happily ever after.
