The Power of Love

How cool is this? The Power of Love, my short holiday story, has gotten a facelift!

The Power of Love is also getting a rewrite. This story was originally published in a holiday anthology back in 2006 and has now been picked up by my publisher, Tirgearr Publishing, for re-release. This short story is being expanded into a novelette length story and will include some of the steamier scenes that were not allowed in the first release.

To refresh your memory, this story is set in Limerick City, Ireland. Hero and heroine, Nathan and Elain, are newlyweds with a plan for their future. But that plan doesn't include getting pregnant so quickly. Regardless, Nathan is over the moon about being a father and they quickly change their plans to include a child.

Then Elaine is hit with some bad news at a prenatal exam and both must face truth that their charmed life is about to come crashing down around them.

Do Christmas wishes really come true? Elaine's life depends on it!

One reviewer said of The Power of Love, "Shortland writes a powerfully emotional story that moved me to tears with an intensity that took my breath away." ~ M. Rondeau

Can't get any better than that!
