Of all the heinous offences laid at the feet of the puritans (or "fun police") during the time of the Interregnum (1649-1660), the banning of Christmas raises the most interest.

The Promise (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated Feb 09, 2011 05:51PM
Description: This short story was written on a visit to New Orleans. Suffering a bad case of jet lag and not wishing to wake my room mate, I sat in the bathroom at 2.00 am and wrote it.

It was first published in the Emerald Anthology of short stories put out by Romance Writers of Australia in 2007.
