a Light Between Us short story
What is worth risking for love?
Padme has been around the block more than a few times. Unlike her best friend, Ruth, she is not exactly a hopeless romantic. She has calculated the cost of all her past relationships, either for fun or practicality, and she's not looking for anything different.
But then she met Chase. Padme and this quiet and rugged Montana police offer became friends almost at first site -- close friends, even though they live a country apart and haven't seen each other face-to-face for more than a few days total, ever.
But when Chase comes to Boston for Ruth and Derek's wedding, Padme struggles to rein in her feelings for him. She can't deny that something inside her -- something far different from her usually pragmatic self -- wants more than friendship with Chase. But does he feel the same? And is she willing to gamble their certain friendship on the chance of having something more?
In this follow-up short story in The Light Between Us series, fans of Ruth and Derek will thrill at the couple's wedding, and discover if Padme and Chase are destined to be more than friends.

Reader praise for Wedding Jitters:
"Short and sizzling."
"This was a sexy bold and daring short story from Poppy, it left me with a bit of a pout actually, only because I really wanted more of Padme and Chase, see where it leads. They are such a contrast but somehow it fits. It was brilliantly written. Looking forward to seeing what Poppy Parkes has in store for us next."
