Because heroes have personal lives too…
This book brings together two novellas that take Carl and Parker, two important characters from Controlled Descent & Flight Plan, on some post-work adventures with a yarn shop owner.
Book 1: Turning The Work
Knitting, Romance, and Dangerous Men
When fate brings Carl Jenson to Felicity Chen’s yarn shop, she sees dollar signs, not a potential lover. She doesn’t have time for romance. Her thriving craft business keeps her too busy–or so she tells herself. As soon as Carl walks out the door, Felicity starts hoping he comes back. Spending time with tall, blond and mysterious is exactly the investment in fun she needs.
Carl gave up on love years ago. He’s an undercover operative with a shady past, and spying for the government of the Restored United States isn’t a career that comes with a future. His recuperating partner drags him back to the knitter’s den for more yarn and more flirting, but he doesn’t dare hope for more.
Felicity is ready to grab opportunity with both hands, and she makes Carl an offer he would be a fool to refuse. A temporary arrangement is all he can afford, and it’s all Felicity expects. It seems like a perfect bargain. In the end, they both get a better deal than they expected.
Book 2: Joining In the Round.
More Knitting, Romance, and Dangerous Men…and a basket full of kittens.
When Felicity Chen’s thriving craft store burns to the ground, she swallows her pride and accepts the grudging hospitality of her extended clan. Any roof is better than none, even if it comes with far too many strings attached.
After three months of loving suffocation in the bosom of family, Felicity is ready to jump at any excuse to escape. Her chance arrives in the form of strangers who bring unexpected news.
Felicity spent her summer in the arms of a mysterious stranger who left without warning. Now he’s back from limbo and in need of cheering up, according to his odd but intriguing friends.
They beg for Felicity’s help, and when they throw in an offer of sanctuary she leaps without looking back. The impulsive decision has long-reaching consequences. Winter’s cold reunion makes Felicity question everything she thought she knew about her summer lover.
The future will bring technological revolutions and political upheaval, but some things are timeless. Lovers meet and part, lives change, and nothing ever goes as planned.
