Tale of Adventure

I Should Have Just Stayed Home is a collection of adventurous stories written by many different authors. I am happy my story is one of them.


Camping in the game parks of Uganda — what could be more exciting? How about a bush jail? Stupid and ignorant, we were in the wrong place at the wrong time when a drunk policeman took an interest in us.


Stressed-out and over-worked to make ends meet, Samantha has no time for romance. Then David invades her house, her life, her peace of mind. He tempts her with music, with love and laughter, stirring up in her long-buried yearnings and desires. But Samantha knows there is no future for them: He’s wealthy, cosmopolitan and on his way out of the country once again.

Then one terrible day she discovers his secret and together they find a way to have a future together.


Tall, dark and rugged is not typical of the average guest at Christina’s small romantic inn. In fact, nothing about Jack Millard is typical. He is completely infuriating. The man turns up looking as if he just walked off a construction site, says he’s a junk dealer and then turns out to be a millionaire! And he doesn’t seem to comprehend that Christina has no intention of getting involved with a man again ever – no matter how tempting the offer.

Having been robbed once of her self-esteem by another man, she has vowed never to let it happen again. She has her inn, her hard-earned independence and she does not need a man.

But what Christina doesn’t know or understand, is the power of true love.
