2 Short Stories by H.L. Burke


Laced: A Short Story by [Burke, H. L.]

Book Description:

Intimacy laces: the ultimate wedding gift, threads of magical energy binding you and your soulmate together for the rest of your happily ever after.

At least, that's what the brochure said ...

Stacy and Jake are united not only by matrimony but by the bonds of their intimacy laces, which allow them to feel each other's eternal devotion. However, after six years of wedded "bliss," the spark has died, and the once healthy laces have dimmed to weak spider threads of light. Determined to reignite the flame, Stacy drags Jake to the Emotional Intimacy Clinic to get their laces refurbished. When the clinic insists on a full consultation and evaluation of their relationship, Jake is reluctant, but Stacy knows they're perfect for each other.

What could possibly go wrong?

My Review:

This is a short story about a married couple struggling to connect. Yes, there's magic involved, and some good insights about love and compatability.

Laced is $0.99 on Amazon

About the Author:
H.L. Burke

Born in a small town in north central Oregon, H. L. Burke spent most of her childhood around trees and farm animals and always accompanied by a book. Growing up with epic heroes from Middle Earth and Narnia keeping her company, she also became an incurable romantic.

An addictive personality, she jumped from one fandom to another, being at times completely obsessed with various books, movies, or television series (Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, and Star Trek all took their turns), but she has grown to be what she considers a well-rounded connoisseur of geek culture.

Married to her high school crush who is now a US Marine, she has moved multiple times in her adult life but believes home is wherever her husband, two daughters, and pets are.
