Playing Cupid: A FREE Holiday Heartbeats Short Story – Just for You

The year 2020 is blasting off at full speed, and it’s hard to believe that we’re already in the middle of February!

Although I’ve been quieter on my blog, it’s a good thing because I’m able to spend more time developing the stories that I want to share with you. Right now, I’m working on a new Holiday Heartbeats Christmas story that I’m really excited about. I can’t wait to share Holly and Nick’s story with you!

Free Short Story (Download Now!)

In the meantime, I’ve got a fun, free short story for you. Playing Cupid is a sweet story about best friends Luc and Bailey. After Valentine’s Day, things between them will never be the same.

I made this story available to my newsletter subscribers at the beginning of the month, so if you want to be one of the first in the know, sign up here.

Playing Cupid

Luc and Bailey have been best friends since they were four years old, but lately, things have changed. When a practical joker locks them in an entertainment room on Valentine’s Day, will one of them finally gather enough courage to share how they really feel?

– Best friends to lovers
– Pizza, red wine  & red velvet cupcakes
– Forced proximity with a big screen TV & firepit

If you’re looking for more Valentine’s Day fun, Love Games is your perfect match. The chemistry and banter between Dante and Mari is so much fun!

Atina Atwood Love Games A Holiday Heartbeats Story

Dante is a born player. This time, he’s playing for keeps.

Dante Cole is a player. Women know what they’re getting into before the first kiss, and as his business grows, they can expect to sign an NDA before the dessert menu lands on the table. As committed as he is to work and family, there’s no room in his heart for a serious one-on-one relationship. He’s afraid to look for anything more.

Marisol Aguilar only needs to work for the loathsome Dante Cole for a few weeks while her mom recuperates from a freak accident that nearly destroyed their family’s livelihood. Despite her mother’s inexplicable fondness for the man, Mari refuses to think highly of him. She’s heard the stories. But chance encounters reveal different sides of Dante that contradict her expectations of him.

When Fate throws them together on Valentine’s Day, will Mari fall victim to the player’s game? Or will she be the one making the rules?
