My Thoughts

Ava meets a handsome stranger while going for a walk in the woods. The two of them have instant chemistry, but their feelings for each other are only one thing they share. The woods they both love are in danger of being destroyed and the two of them team up to stop the land from being leveled. Ava has the degrees, but Morgan has something even more unique up his sleeve.

The Picnic is a short story with a hot and heavy romance, beautiful foliage depictions, and a surprise ending that was not what I expected when I started the story. In addition to providing an entertaining tale with a paranormal twist, it also has an underlying moral about preserving nature. Definitely a fun, quick read.


  1. I love trees. I love to look at them and photograph them. This sounds like an interesting read.
