Currency Press by Alex Broun
Cole has done something bad. Very bad. He’s kidnapped Cerise. But she deserved it! Right? He sent her his play six months and three weeks ago and she never even responded. Convincing her it’s good enough to publish is only the start of Cole’s problems.

  • COLE—a playwright
  • CERISE— publisher of plays
