Love Works!

by Tracy Wilson-Burns from the April 19, 2010 issue

Tagline: Rowena didn't believe in office romances--even if she did believe that she was falling for her coworker...

In a nutshell: Rowena is attracted to the new guy at work. After two months, he finally asks her out, but she has an ironclad rule against not mixing business with pleasure, but he reveals that he's only a temp. Yay!

Observations: This story spans a longer period of time than normal--a couple of months. We see the attraction build and experience Rowena's frustration. We also see her bumbling because she's a little nervous around him. I honestly wondered how this romance was going to work out. I hoped she wasn't going to compromise her principles, and she didn't.

Just found your blog and am interested in publishing a short story (romance) in Women's World Magazine. Here I find the work of a classmate from Seton Hill University's Writing Popular Fiction program being profiled. What a great surprise! Congrats on the sale Tracy and on Kate's analysis.
