It’s amazing to see an author pack this much heat and emotion into such a short story.

Olivia Daughtry returns home after a hard day as a nurse, looking forward only to a glass of chocolate wine and some down time, even though its Valentine’s Day.  Her boyfriend also worked a long shift and she doesn’t expect to see him tonight.  As she starts to unwind, she is interrupted by a cop at her door, who interrogates her about one o f her patients.  Claiming the patient is a rapist, the cop handcuffs her and gives her a small taste of what the victims feel.  She responds to all his moves unwillingly but inexorably. I won’t give any more of the plot away, but this is a fun read, with a great ending.  A perfect short story for bedtime or the doctor’s office.
