This week, I’m sharing a teaser from my short story, Saving Taylor.
Here’s the blurb from the story to give some background:
Bergen Klaus, a well-respected landscape architect, is over forty, single, and looking for love. He wants to explore an interest in a co-worker, except company policy frowns on inter-office relationships. Not to be deterred, Bergen devises a creative plan that allows him to come to Taylor’s rescue. But will it be enough to catch the younger man’s eye, and still allow him to make his intentions known without alerting the boss?
Taylor Prescott, a young interior designer, is dedicated to his job and oblivious to Bergen’s advances. Instead, Taylor is more than a little put off by the “gifts” that keep mysteriously popping up in his office. Can Taylor get past his insecurities to discover the truth of this office mystery? Will he be receptive to Bergen’s attempt at catching a boyfriend?
Taylor reached over and gave Bergen’s thigh a squeeze. “Well, I couldn’t very well do that. What kind of surprise would it have been?”
Bergen laughed, causing shivers to race up and down Taylor’s spine. I could get used to that. “You are too darn cute for your own good, Taylor. What am I going to do with you?”
“How about we start with a date. Maybe dinner?” Taylor crossed his fingers.
Nodding, Bergen answered, “I would love to cook for you. After we eat, we could curl up in front of my fireplace.”
Taylor knew his eyes got big, but he didn’t care. He couldn’t stop the grin which spread across his face.
Bergen appeared lost, his eyebrows furrowed in confusion. “What? What’s with that look?”
It was Taylor’s turn to laugh. “Sounds like a dream I had very recently.”
