TIN MAN’S DANCE (A New Adult Novella)

By MK Schiller

The one time Lilly Franklin decides to reward herself with tickets to her

favorite indie artist’s concert, there is a seat mix-up. Not to mention the tall,

cocky boy who claims her front-row seat is all wicked smiles, long legs and

tug-worthy hair. Lilly quickly decides this boy is messing with the wrong girl.

But as the night wears on, Lily starts to see a softer side of former marine,

James “Hutch” Hutchinson. A side that makes her shed her loner inhibitions

along with her clothes.

There is a difference between trouble and troubled, but Hutch is both.

Hutch lost more than a leg in the Iraqi dessert. Returning to school on the

GI Bill wasn’t exactly in the plans…but plans change. Now he only wants to

meet the dancer he saw at the recitals his roommate dragged him to, but

he’s forgotten how to talk to women, especially a woman as graceful as Lilly.

So armed with a plan that even a twelve-years-old would laugh at, James

steals Lilly’s seat.

Only fair since she stole his heart first.

But Lilly has plans, too. As if Hutch’s life wasn’t already a sh*t storm of

sacrifice. Now, he has to give up the one thing he can’t get enough of.

Author Bio:

I am a hopeless romantic in a hopelessly pragmatic world. I have a full time

life and two busy teenagers, but in the dark of night, I sit by the warm glow

of my computer monitor, reading or writing, usually with some tasty

Italian…the food that is!

I started imagining stories in my head at a very young age. In fact, I got so

good at it that friends asked me to create plots featuring them as the

heroine and the object of their affection as the hero. You've heard of fan

fiction... this was friend fiction.

I hope you enjoy my stories and always find The Happily Ever After in every

Excerpt from Tin Man’s Dance –

“There’s a field not far from here. We could have a picnic. You should see

the flowers that bloom there.” I bit my lip because he would see them next

year. I wouldn’t. I kept going, my breaths materializing physically in the cool

air. “There are roses and hydrangeas and…”

 “Lilies? Are there lilies?”

 “Stargazer lilies. Do you know what those are?”

 He shook his head.

 “They look like pink stars bursting open. They’re lovely.”

 “Are they tall?”

 I tilted my head back, eyeing him curiously. “Not really. Why do you ask?”

“Cause I want to know if we can f*ck in that field without being found


I spun around, facing him. He feigned an innocent look while I stabbed

my finger against his chest. “I can’t believe you transformed my beautiful

fantasy into soft-core porn.”

James leaned his forehead against mine, his mischievous smirk

causing my panties to dampen. “There is nothing soft-core about me.

Besides, your fantasy was making me grow a vagina.”

 I stared at him for a second before breaking out into a full-on laugh attack.

I think we laughed hard enough to wake the sun back up.

His hand shifted to my lower back. He bent his mouth close to my ear.

“I don’t know a damn thing about flowers, but I can tell you without a doubt

there is no lovelier Lilly than the one I’m holding.”

 Okay…so that just happened.

Teasers from Tin Man’s Dance –

Teaser 1:

Lilly, if we are in a fairy tale, then you, my beautiful dancing girl, have

successfully broken one hex, only to cast another.

“Not myth, a legend.”

 Teaser 2:

 “Same diff. But I agree, it would be foolish of us.” Even as he said it, he

was inching closer, closing the gap I’d made between us.

 I took a step back. “Behave.”

“Kiss me good-night, lover. I want to fall asleep with the taste of you

on my tongue.”

 Note to self: boys who took English lit could melt a girl’s panties right off.

Teaser 3:

“My mother always said ‘It’s never too late to start something as long

as you intend to finish it.’”

“That’s good advice.”

My mom had an expression too: Sometimes you find trouble, and

sometimes you find troubled. It takes a smart woman to know the

difference. Clearly, in James Hutchinson I had found both.
 Our Review:
We absolutely loved Tin Man's Dance. Pair up a dancer and a wounded warrior and you have one amazing tale of falling in love, regardless of physical or mental handicaps. True love will always prevail. James "Hutch" is the perfect book boyfriend. This tale brought about the issue of PTSD and how traumatic it can be and it was well played. We loved watching these two complete strangers fall in love and balance each other out. We would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a sweet love story with a few steamy scenes to boot. 
5/5 stars
