FIRST PLACE Unpublished Novella -- 2016 Royal Palm Literary Awards sponsored by the Florida Writers Association
Lydia DiMarco is a young woman with beauty and brains, and no idea what to do with them. She also has Asperger’s Syndrome. Hiding away in her little house in Bonita Springs, she’s doing just fine, thank you… until she falls in love with a cop.
When Lee County Deputy Roy Fuentes stops Lydia for speeding, he sees the beauty of a butterfly, fragile and vulnerable. But if he’s Type A, she must be Type Z. He wants her. But can he catch her? And even if he does, can they possibly find happiness in the middle of the alphabet?
Here in Southwest Florida, we know a lot about the power of hurricanes.
We know a lot about the power of love, too. We know love can survive storms of all kinds, and these ten new stories from Southwest Florida Romance Writers prove it. Within these pages, love comes to rich and poor, young and old. It lurks on the beach, in town, and in Florida’s agricultural heartland. It might creep up on you… or it might strike with the power of a hurricane.
