Desert Dreams by Sophia Jones
Originally featured in the anthology Fantasies of a Housewife edited by Tina Pollick, “Desert Dreams” is a contemporary romantic short story.
Shaylene Thomas is a busy working mom. Raising her two girls on her own in rural Arizona’s high desert country, each day is an adventure filled with both beauty and challenges– and she wouldn’t trade a moment of it for all the riches in all the skyscrapers in the world. But sometimes she dreams of a warm pair of arms to curl into at night … and sometimes dreams come true.
This was cute, and funny, and sexy. Very well written, it really reeled me in and made me care about the characters. Worth the read though for sure!
