Summary Excerpt Comments
A collection of 13 delightful short stories by Susanne Marie Knight. 

"Homesick"--Just what is Jayna homesick for? Through a miraculous event, Jayna overcomes her antagonism to her new surroundings. But will she be able to reconcile her husband to the upcoming, impossible event?
 
"True Love and Candy Corn"--On a Halloween outing, thirteen-year-old Rebecca knocks on a "witch's" door. As her treat, she is cursed with true love until the end of time, and even though desirable Frank Palmer seems to be the love object in question, Rebecca is thoroughly spooked. Now, nine years later, Rebecca is treat-or-treating again as she escorts her young cousins on their rounds. When she comes face to face with Frank, she doesn't see true love as a curse anymore. Will the witch's prophecy come true? 

"Happy Anniversary"--Ten years ago, Claire Newberry had made a terrible mistake. When she returns to the restaurant where she foolishly had broken up with her boyfriend, will she get a second chance at love? 

"Saturation Point"--If you think the light of the silvery moon is romantic, just think what the shadow of the planet Mars will do to one's libido! 

"Grand-mère's Sainte Bleu"--After a young girl touches the special portrait hanging in her grandmother's house, the grandmother tells how she met her true love at a USO dance during World War II. 

"A Very Special Christmas Present"--Her only brother killed in the Napoleonic Wars, romance is the furthest thing from grieving Deidre's mind. However her young "niece"--Cupid's curly-haired accomplice--is determined to give Auntie Dee the best Christmas present ever. 

"Special of the Week"--The new restaurant in town has delicious food. Eat at your own risk! 

"Teacher's Pet"--Ever since Bill Nelson was a kid, bully "Mac" MacDonald always bested him. Now grown, Bill has a bit of an inferiority complex. To even the playing field, he visits a hypnotherapist who knows just how to handle the obnoxious Mac.
 
"Shades of Old Glory"--After winning a contest she doesn't remember entering, Rebecca Sedgwick arrives at a Virginia plantation bed and breakfast ready to relax before starting her job search. She finds her older hosts very congenial but Jake, the handsome handyman, is antagonistic. That night, on the eve of the July 4th celebration, she has a vivid dream of a Civil War battle. As one corporal lays dying, he asks for her help. But how can she possibly help a ghost? 

"Adolescence"--Never doubt an alien fortuneteller! Shandelle is a happy-go-lucky teenager who is preoccupied with normal teenager concerns. But what will she do when she learns that her perfect world will soon come to an end? 

"Zeus and the Single Teacher"--A hunky new instructor, a magic pencil, and two out-of-the-ordinary adolescent girls create an odyssey of love for a lonely teacher. 

"Friday Night"--If only she could meet Mr. Right--someone like the new neighbor that had moved into the garden apartment below hers. She hadn't seen much of him, probably because their work schedules conflicted. What she had seen, though, she instinctively liked. See how a lost article of clothing introduces two neighbors. 

"Lady Elizabeth's Excellent Adventure"--Lady Elizabeth would rather be comfortable than go on an adventure. She isn't given a choice however, when she takes the plunge... literally and figuratively, and ends up in a New York cop's hot tub. Is it possible that they can be the answer to each other's unspoken prayers?
