Zara appears in several stories of the Enigma Series. We created her as a Darknet hacker and one of our original characters readers love to hate. Like our readers, we both loved and despised her choices. She kept reminding us that part of her complexity as a character evolved from her rough beginnings and ill-treatment by despicable men. Her survival methods made her hard and cynical—focused only on her payday and next mark.

Buzz Buswald II is affectionately known as Buzz. He first appears in The Enigma Factor as Jacob Michael’s classmate from school. Buzz comes from wealth, well-educated, yet somewhat lazy. Along his journey, Buzz has made some bad choices with fortunate outcomes.

Both characters received lots of comments from readers through more than one book. In The Enigma Always, we decided to have their paths cross. We wanted to know if they were redeemable for the series or needed to vanish.

Yes, Zara is working for a Russian mobster. True, she engineered a diamond heist of €5 million, and yes, she never tells the truth even when love is at stake.

Buzz has a heart but lousy track record in picking women. His friends are limited, and his family distances themselves. His lazy attitude and using others delayed him from growing into a positive contributing adult.

When these two misfits vanish at the end of The Enigma Always, Burkey had readers asking what happened to these two people. We decided that the story of these two needed telling. The starting point came from this audible segment of the novel.

We knew these two are off to a shaky start because Buzz askes Jacob if they have any chance at all. We created the short story to focus on these two characters with an opportunity in a new place with no baggage from their prior associations. Love’s Enigma tracks the bumpy ride of these two extreme opposites in their quest to be ordinary lovers working on a dream.

About the Short Story

Love's Enigma by Breakfield and BurkeyHopelessly in love and desperately fearful!

Zara and Buzz are products of vastly different upbringings. Their chance meeting ignites attraction they must explore. Even with lies and omissions, they find themselves falling in love. For them, it’s a good thing that love is blind.

A defining incident offers the opportunity to explore a future together. They move away from everything for a fresh start. They optimize their experiences to build a life they never imagined in the Caribbean. Then their demons surface.
