The Last Star

Two beings watch the last star in our universe wink out and discover the answer to how it all ends. And, perhaps, how it all begins.

Just Friends

Friends since they carried Scooby-Doo lunch boxes in second grade, two college students take the awkward, irreversible, and perilous step away from just friends.


If you think your roommate is bad, then try living with a practical-joke-playing, drop-dead-gorgeous, celebrity femme fatale. No one is safe from her wiles—least of all you.

Like Wild Horses

He knew a lot about horses, but could he figure out the quiet girl who seemed to love them even more?

My Kingdom for a Double Espresso

Is sex just a physical thing for guys? You know you’re in trouble when your girlfriend tosses that out after you make the mistake of falling asleep on her…

Down in Flames

Personal tragedy played against a background of public disaster leaves one woman stuck in a very personal hell—and hoping for a second chance.


Right now, at this every instant, you are older than you have ever been—and younger than you will ever be again. There will never be a better time to find love.
