Today we're thrilled to welcome Donna Alward (author of Someone to Love) back to Heroes and Heartbreakers with a very titilating scene that we know will leave you wanting more!
Last month, we asked you to offer suggestions (“prompts”) as inspiration for a short original scene, and you blew us away with a ton of great prompts.
Here are the prompts she chose for (with thanks to everyone who left a suggestion, because there were so many fantastic options):
- Penguins (Jenna Bayley-Burke)
- A bouquet of sunflowers (Kareni)
- Margaritas (ClaireHadleigh)
- An Eccentric Mailman (PhoebeChase)
Now, without further ado... Donna Alward's Somebody Like You Epilogue
Aiden stepped inside the house and nearly tripped over the piles of bags and cans in the entry.

“What the…” His heart seized a little. The baby wasn’t due for a few months yet, but the sight of the crib and a little table beside it made cold fear creep over his skin.
