Victims of unsynchronized mishaps


It's happened to all of us at one time or another, right?

When we've had to endure minor or major calamities.

The reaction of course depends on how often one  unleashes their internal drama queen. Luckily for me, my internal-DQ is in a coma (most days).

If you've followed my blog, you would have read where a I got gobsmacked (I've been waiting to use this word) once or twice with a minor mishaps.

Telemarketers hanging up on me. (I still maintain they hire people who are snooze-instigators).

Disastrous date. Again, not my fault.


Okay, I admit, I may have had more than one mishap, and probably a few others that I haven't mentioned, but trust me, they were no where near the calamity of events that the hero and heroine of my newly released, short story, Tempted By An Angel go through when they first meet.

TEMPTED BY AN ANGEL is a fun, light-hearted comedy with a splash of romance.

This short story dedicated to all the romance readers who love and support the romance genre.


Matthew Lockwood hired entertainment for his nephew’s birthday party.

Instead an Angel showed up, wearing killer heels, carrying a bouquet of balloons and a body that was heavenly—except she had an attitude that was anything but angelic.

Unfortunately for Angel Montgomery---life doesn’t have auto-correct.

Matthew and Angel are both victims of unsynchronized mishaps.

What misadventures have you experienced?

Please share.

We won't laugh at you. We always LAUGH with you. :)

Selena Robins has done it again with this irresistible short story with characters so charming you can't help but get attached. I also highly recommend What a Girl Wants.

A bit short but charming.

When Matthew Lockwood opens the door expecting a clown for his five-year-old nephew's birthday party, what he gets instead is bikini-clad Angel Montgomery armed with condom balloons, ready to sing for a bunch of rowdy bachelors. There's been a mix-up, and the results are hilarious. You'll be thoroughly entertained by this engaging, laugh-out-loud short story that leaves the reader wanting more!

What a super-fun story by Selena Robins! From the first page I was hooked. Hello, romance. As Angel and Matt literally fall all over each other (in a scene that was so funny I was conscious of not peeing my pants), you can't help but fall for them. Congrats to Ms. Robins. My only complaint is that this story was over far too soon and I really hope she revisits this terrific couple.

Genre-defying, witty, humorous, suspenseful, romantic and sexy— words used to describe Selena’s novels. A self-professed foodie and chocolate guru, Selena loves to dance with her dog, sing into her hairbrush and write in her PJ's. In love with her family, friends, books, laughter, hockey, lively discussions and red wine (sometimes all at the same time). Selena is a dragon slayer who enjoys reading and writing sassy heroines and hot heroes (the ones your mamma warned you about, but secretly wished she’d dated a few in her life).
