(My Love#3/1 (fb) - BTS) - Kathy Stewart was owner
and operator of "Kathy's Kooky Kards" gift card shop in the Village,
New York City. She hoped for romance, but was cautious.
(My Love#3/1) - One day, she met
Jim in her shop. He
requested the new Heartbeat range of cards and she, not realizing he
was one of Heartbeat's salesmen, offered to order some. But he was
smitten by her and walked her home that night, quickly followed by
several romantic dates together. They soon fell in love with each
other. Eventually Heartbeat Cards delivered the order, but a quantity
problem led to Kathy going to the supplier nearby. There she saw Jim
praised for high sales and instantly felt that she'd been deliberately
fooled in romance. Thinking it was part of Jim's standard routine to
sell cards, she ran off and stayed away from the shop for days in the
dark. She finally returned to her shop to see that Jim had gained the
shop key from the landlord and kept her business running. He'd quit
Heartbeat Cards and wanted to run the store as a married couple. They
kissed as he showed her the last card he had designed for Heartbeat,
featuring the two of them on the cover.

These romance stories often had the flavor of the time in which they were written, and nothing else to tie them into Marvel's sliding timescale. As such, it's likely that the stories took place at the time of publication rather than being part of the sliding timescale.
