Donna Steele

Women strong enough for love. Donna writes science fiction, paranormal and small town romances about women coming into their strength and having the courage to find and accept love. Now that she has retired from going into an office every day, she created an office at home and writes full time. Talk about living the dream! She was the girl at the party who was yearning for the quiet corner and a book to read (go Rory Gilmore!), and has been writing in her head since she learned to read. Getting those stories down on paper (or in her laptop) has been more fun than she ever imagined it could be. The possibilities of science fiction have always drawn her and she's read them all, there just needed to be a little more romance in them. She finally got up the courage to write them herself and is delighted to be able to share these stories with you. She is a member of Romance Writers of America, the Fantasy, Futuristic & Paranormal Chapter of RWA and the Heart of Carolina Romance Writers. She can be reached at www.steelestories.com, www.facebook.com/donnasteeleauthor, or https://twitter.com/steele_donna

    Working Christmas

    Chapter One

    Angie closed her laptop down a little too forcefully and looked around to see if there had been witnesses. Her office door was open, but most people had already left. They were excited and happy to have such a long vacation over the holidays.

    What the hell was she going to do with herself for eleven friggin’ days? Okay Christmas fell on a Wednesday this year. But that was no excuse to shut down the firm for the whole week. From today, Friday, she’d be on her own, and alone, until a week from Monday. She’d thought her assistant would wet herself when she found out.

    Angie had barely managed not to scream Bah Humbug, she’d only muttered it, and no one had heard. Angela Louise Sullivan did not make scenes.

    She could work from her place. There was always catch up work and research to do. As one of the newer partner-track attorneys, she had expected to be forced to work during this week. Hell, she’d counted on it. Benevolence on the part of the senior partners never entered her mind.

    Gathering up her work and overstuffing her briefcase she started out.

    Don’t forget your poinsettia, Rachel, one of the other newbies reminded her. Angie looped her bag over her shoulder and shifted her load enough to grab the damn plant. Another gift from management.

    The last of the people left on the floor rode the elevator with her, laughing and excited about a week off. She managed to smile and not drop the plant.

    With this load she opted for a cab. The walk wasn’t that far and she was used to it, but not carrying so much. Her mood was in the pits anyway.
