UPDATE: The winner is…Pat Elliott!
Blackout by January George
When a summer heatwave blackout strands a fireman in an elevator with the girl who got away, the temperature isn’t the only thing rising…
Excerpt from “Blackout”…
“Oh, I’m sorry it’s so unbearable to be stuck in this elevator with me.” Liam rolled his eyes, the implication painfully clear.
“You know what? It is unbearable.” But not for the reasons he thought. The situation was untenable because she still wanted him, and she couldn’t reconcile wanting someone who had done what he had. She grabbed the umbrella, the one she’d taken from the stand on her way out when she’d seen the dark clouds outside. She’d been dumb enough to hook it inside her arm with all the bags on top, and when it had actually started raining, it had been too much trouble to try to untangle it, so she’d run. If she’d bothered to stop to use it, Liam Rygaard would’ve been stuck in this elevator alone, and she’d have been huffing and puffing up nine flights of stairs.
It was the goddamn umbrella’s fault.
Hasn’t everyone had a “stuck-in-an-elevator-with-a-hot-guy” fantasy?
Realistically, what things would you be worried about? Have fun!
