Mathematical Kisses: a fake marriage short story
Robin Leslie has a pretty unique job: she is the cover wife of a spy. Sounds glamorous, right? It's not. Day after day of playing the housewife in a house that isn't really hers, for a husband she isn't really married to.
Not that pretending to be married to Elliot Leslie, brilliant mathematician, doesn't have its perks. He's a hot silver fox, a playful flirt, affectionate-even if itis fake-and amazing in bed.
But Robin yearns for a life that is a little more real. And it takes her almost losing everything to realize the life she's been living might not be as staged as she thought.
Mathematical Kisses is a 5,800-word short story with love, laughs, a dollop of suspense, and a happy ending. Originally published under the name Anna Lillian Wade, it is slightly steamy, but not explicit. A wonderful introduction to the writing of A. L. Wade.
