Jake from Accidental Romance, part of Love in a New World
What impression do you make on people when they first meet you?
Those who live in the city usually think I’m a cowboy who doesn’t know much of anything but driving a tractor and shoveling manure.
How about after they’ve known you for a while?
They find out I’m hardworking, dedicated, and more intelligent than they originally assumed.
What is your profession?
I’m a farmhand at the Smith dairy farm down the road. It may sound like a horrible job, but I have my reasons for staying.
Tell me about your best friend.
My best friend is Hudson. He has his own dairy farm a mile and a quarter over. I help him sometimes, too. Though mostly we just drink together and shoot the shit.
Describe your ideal mate.
Haha. I work by her side every day. She’s just as hard-working as I am. The only problem is she has a boyfriend who’s a jerk. I only wish she could see it.
What’s the most important thing in your life?
I’m saving up for the future. I want to buy a house, a new truck, and more.
Your thoughts on love?
I’m beginning to think it doesn’t exist.
Your greatest extravagance?
Probably the truck I already have, my four wheeler, my boat.
Is there anything you haven’t done that you want to do?
I want to own my own house, travel across the country… *shrugs*
Your quirky habits?
*shrugs again* I never really thought about it. Ask Leanne, she’ll know if I have any.
What quality do you like most in a woman?
Hard-working and dedicated like me.
What trait do you most despise?
Self-centeredness, and those who take forever to get ready to go anywhere.
What are you most afraid of?
Being alone, watching my dreams crumble away.
What do you value the most?
My friends and family.
A nice medium rare steak with a baked potato.
What would you consider your perfect night out?
Dinner and a movie, or a nice quiet walk after dinner. Then ending up back in the country where we can stare up at the stars.
What was your first thought or impression when you met the person you fell in love with?
I’ve known her forever. Seems like it anyway. I don’t remember a time I didn’t know her. I found her annoying in high school, but when she left for college, I realized how much I missed seeing her around. It’s been great working with her since she returned.
What would you change about the person you fell in love with?
That she didn’t have a boyfriend. Well, she can have one, but it needs to be me.
What do you like most about the person you fell in love with?
She’s beautiful. And she’s quick-witted. Always has a comeback no matter what I say to her. I can’t imagine not being around her every day.
What would you change about yourself?
Anything to get her to realize how I feel about her. Well, except move to the city. I’d never do that. But, I don’t think she would either.
An alien prince, a farm girl, two university students from a small town, and more are all ready to begin their lives as adults. They have everything planned out. But when drastic events crush their dreams, they must carve a new path. And they just might find unexpected love along the way.
Includes the New Adult Romances Beyond Reach, Accidental Romance, It Took a Zombie Apocalypse, Hey Santa, and bonus story Alien Kisses at Midnight.

(Accidental Romance – PG-13 – 583 words)
“So, how are you feeling, LA?” Jake sauntered into the room, his worried expression replaced with a cocky grin.
God, she hated that look. It meant he was planning something, ready with another prank. And using his nickname for her, LA, another sign he was up to no good. Things were different now though. She wouldn’t be working with him every day, and the thought made her stomach twist.
“Oh, fine, Jake-a-roo. I’m missing a hand, but otherwise, just peachy.”
“Great, then get the hell out of bed.”
She drew in a quick breath. How dare he talk to her like that. She was in the hospital. “Did you not hear me? My hand is gone.” How could anyone forget? She never would.
“Yes, your hand, not your legs.” He shucked the blankets off her. “So, get off your ass, and let’s go for a walk.”
“I only have a hospital gown on. I can’t go wandering around.” Reaching for the sheets, she tried to cover herself, but he refused to give them back. “C’mon Jake, this is embarrassing.” She didn’t need him or anyone else in shock from an accidental flash.
He finally let go, only to march over to her small closet and grab her robe. “Put this on.” He tossed it at her. “Otherwise, I’m going to carry you out into the hall and plop you down on the floor.”
“You’re such an ass.”
His shit-eating grin returned. “I know, but I refuse to let you sit around and throw a pity party.” He gripped her arms and stared into her eyes, as serious as when he’d arrived. “You’re not dead.”
The intensity radiating from him stole her breath. She was seeing a side of Jake he’d never revealed before. Why? She gasped, struggling for air. What was she supposed to say? He didn’t understand. She had to thank him, yes, thank her hero. “Jake, thank you. You…you saved me.”
“Yes, I did.” His gaze traveled down her body, leaving a trail of goose bumps. Then he glanced at the door. “Let’s go, LA.”
Shit, he wasn’t going to give up. Might as well placate him. Pressing her hand onto the mattress, she swung her legs off the side. She slipped her feet into her fuzzy slippers and stood up, immediately feeling a cool breeze across her back. Most days, she welcomed air conditioning, but not today. “I, um, need some help with the robe.”
When Jake returned his focus to her, his cheeks flushed. “Yeah, I guess you do.”
He held it open while she slipped her arms into the sleeves, the first with ease, the second, not so much. The dressing around the end of her nub caught in the fleece. Pain sliced through her arm, and she yelped.
“Sorry.” His face drained of all color. He yanked the robe off her bandages and draped it over her right shoulder then secured the tie at her waist. “I guess it’s going to take us all some time to get used to this.”
“Yeah.” Except he didn’t have to get used to anything. Leanne wouldn’t return to the fields or the barn. The only time she’d see him was the occasional night her parents invited him to stay for dinner. And even then, he wouldn’t have anything to do with her except friendly conversation.
“Since there’s no longer a chance of you showing off your sexy pink hearts to everyone….” He winked at her. “Let’s go for our walk.”
