Many years ago I was on a writer’s forum & it was suggested that we do a short story exchange for the winter holidays, a low cost gift for a person. It was supposed to be 5-7,000 words & would only be read by your giftee.
My first ever published title, Daniel’s Dare was that book. In true Sasha fashion I blew right past the word count and kept going. I wasn’t able to participate in the story exchange (it never got organized that I recall) & I’m glad. This is probably my most fun title – banter 5ever! — and I’m glad I get to share it with as many people as possible.
This is a friends to lovers novella with snark, sweetness and sexytimes. While technically a Christmas story, it’s also got that snowed-in-forced-proximity-oh-em -gee-why-are-you-so-hot-factor-I-love.
And more importantly after some limbo, it’s now in a position where I can comfortably provide the buy links, which are below with the blurb:
Daniel Rich and Kaitlyn Dow have been friends for fifteen years, and playing an increasingly outlandish game of Truth or Dare for nearly as long. In love with her friend for longer than she’d like to admit, Kaitlyn prefers to hide in the safety of truths she can guide away from embarrassing secrets. While ladies’ man Daniel can’t help but push Kaitlyn’s boundaries with bolder, sexier dares every chance he gets in hopes that he can finally get his friend to notice how he feels.
With her bed-and-breakfast overbooked, the two are forced to spend the night together. Under the twinkle of Christmas lights and the temptation of mistletoe, Daniel is ready to move their relationship to the next level. Kaitlyn suspects he’s still playing a game, and resigns herself to a one-night stand. But she’ll soon learn that Daniel is willing to risk any dare to get Kaitlyn to see the truth—that they belong together.
