I hit 50 K after nine days of writing (missing days 2, 8 and 9 and finishing on the 12th of November) but I have been adding here and there in the days since. Now, it's time for me to (very reluctantly!) pull myself away from WISHING CROSS STATION for a while-- so difficult because I am MAD about this story-- and to get back to other business at hand.

Soon she would be fighting against the odds to help keep a gravely wounded stranger alive; and waging war with her own heart, as he stirred feelings in her she’d never known.
When the stranger's royal identity is revealed, Charlotte is faced with an entirely different battle: one to keep her family, village, and the injured Prince in her care, safe from a madman set on taking the throne by any means necessary...
