Rough & Beautiful is filled with tiny love stories, each as brief as the moment before a kiss.
There are tales from the olden days, of princes and princesses, the young and alluring, and the cruel and rakish.

The one thing they all have in common is boy meets girl and they find their happily ever after.
These stories are unlike other romance stories you have read. Their extreme brevity allows you to bring your own interpretation and imagination to them.
Two sample stories:
