Shelter From the Storm

Short Story in The Promise of Love Anthology

By Lori Foster

Berkley Sensation - June 2011

Contemporary Romance

Six authors coming together and providing short stories for an anthology. Six short stories filled with passion and healing. The Promise of Love is an anthology of six romances written to support a charity.

It was always a storm that demolished Sabrina Downey's confidence, tossed her back into the past, and into the arms of her neighbor and best friend Roy Pilar. And there was nowhere else Roy wanted her to be - whether or not she was scared. He'd had a soft spot for Sabrina when she'd been neglected as a child. Now as an adult, he wanted her as a man who loved a woman. He could start with this night, this time of holding her through the night, comforting her when she instinctively turns to him.

Sabrina hated her reactions to storms. She hated that she had to seek out Roy for comfort - almost as much as she loved him. But he could never love her - how could he love her when she fell apart at something as silly as rain and lightning? She would accept any affection he gave her, as he already had her heart.

A hero oh-so-in-love with his heroine, a hero and heroine who are best friends, and the author is Lori Foster - with these ingredients, how could Shelter From the Storm be anything but magic?

Included in The Promise of Love are: Shelter From the Storm by Lori Foster, Take Me Home by Erin McCarthy, Razor's Edge by Sylvia Day, Midnight Rendezvous by Jamie Denton, Dime Store Cowboy by Kate Douglas, and Life in the Past Lane by Kathy Love.
