Have you ever taken a look at one of your friends and thought...this could be something more??
I had a really close friend who I had known since both of us were in diapers. We'd tossed sand at each other. We laughed at each other's jokes. We even discussed who we thought we should date. But then one day in Jr. High, I looked at him and suddenly saw little hearts.
I could see him as someone I'd wanted to spend more time with. I wanted to know how his lips felt against mine. I didn't want to pick someone else for him to date, I wanted to be the one he dated.
KJ Holliday writes a fun and romantic story about two such friends. They suddenly see the sparks flying and move their relationship to the next level. But even that isn't without its share of frustrations.
10 Days is a marvelous story about a writer who needs inspiration and the woman who suddenly gives him something to write about. Now available in ebook and print, 10 Days is going to be your new favorite read.
A hilarious love story featuring an overdramatic city boy and an incomparable girl from the country.
In an attempt to knock out the long-awaited follow-up to his best-selling first novel, Alexander Jones lets his best friend convince him that trekking into the wilderness for a survival boot camp was the only way to get the creative juices flowing.
With the help of a detailed itinerary, Luke, and Luke's childhood friend, Penny, they’d committed 10 days to help Alex forgo his Urbanite roots and embrace the countryside.
It took a lifetime to get to the mountains where Luke and Penny had camped as kids, and only a second for Alex to know he was out of his element.
In a surprising twist of fate, it also took 10 days for him to fall in love with Penny Foster. The question was, did Penny feel the same way, and what would Luke say when he found out?
The look on her face held infinite secrets. It wasn’t just a “You’re welcome for the fork.” It was for the snuggling, and not telling about the snuggling, and the coffee, and the breakfast. He wasn’t the best at these sorts of things. But he was ninety percent … eighty percent … sixty-seven percent … fairly certain she was flirting with him. A blind person would be able to notice. Well, Luke seemed totally unfazed by the entire thing, so he’d have to say a blind person would notice before Luke did, but they would still notice, and that was … interesting …
He figured it would be best not to dwell on it, so his mind scattered for an appropriate topic to discuss, too early in the morning. “So, what do we have planned for today?”
Penny perked up, fumbling for a royal blue notebook while he focused on inhaling his breakfast as quickly as possible. “I think we should start with making shelter first. In the event of someone being lost or living off the grid, they’d need to know how to make a sustainable place to stay. That’s probably the most practical place to start.”
“Good call,” Luke affirmed, nodding in agreement.
Alex dropped his fork to his plate with a clatter. Shelter? They were going to make him build another place to sleep for when their joke of a tent eventually became unusable? Except this time he probably wouldn’t have ambiguous directions printed on shoddy material he could blame his inadequacy on. Penny grinned at him as if she could read his thoughts. With the scowl marring his face, she might very well have been able to.
Scratch that. This wasn’t flirting. It was torture.

Most of us have grown up with Fairy Tales. We followed along as Cinderella and Snow White found their happy endings. Now there are stories from every point of view, including the villain's, but I PUT A SPELL ON YOU is different. It takes what you know about fairy tales and twists it. What if the heroine was really a fairy godmother??

The chick with the phobia about being pecked to death by a pack of winged creatures suddenly has a pair of unruly wings of her own to deal with. As if that isn’t enough, Aviana's first assignment is to spark a romance between her wicked stepsister and the tall and handsome tech billionaire who’s been her crush forever.

What is sexy to you? I love a man holding a baby! I know... but there is something about seeing a guy holding a baby to make me smile. They make cute faces and are a little awkward but we get to see them as a father. And there is nothing sexier than a father!
In Suze Robinson's latest release, THE FRIENDSHIP EQUATION, her heroine gets to see her best friend in a new light. A baby gives her a new perspective and who knows where things go from there!!
What happens when you fall for your best friend just in time to lose her?
Molly is a pastry chef with a dedicated path to running a kitchen in New York to escape the looming shadow of never being enough in her father’s kitchen.
Adam is a math teacher with a commitment to his family and their small seaside hometown. Leaving home just isn’t something he can do; not when so many people rely on him.
They are roommates and best friends who were always together... until things shift out of the friend zone. Once they find out their time together is limited, and an undeniable chemistry is unleashed, how will they figure out how to move forward as just friends?
While I want to spin on my heel and run the other direction, Adam goes to the child. I debate escaping until I see my best friend holding a baby. I’m frozen in place, unable to do anything but zero in on Adam. The baby is crying, a reddened face with screams that break decibels.
“What are you going to do?” I ask. What could he possibly do to stop those poor tears? I walk closer, which seems to surprise Adam as much as it does me.
“Let’s narrow down what it could be.” He takes her to the couch in his mother’s living room and unwraps her from the weird pink fabric she’s in. “Mom, when was the last time Alice ate?”
I watch in amazement at how well Adam changes her diaper and doesn’t even seem nervous. He does it with precision, just like when he’s solving one of his puzzles.
“Oh, it’s time, I’ll get her bottle ready,” Gloria responds.
He finishes Alice’s diaper change. After that, he gets her wrapped back up in her little blanket thing.
“Why are you wrapping her up like that?” Alice seems all smashed up. It can’t be comfortable, right?
“It’s called swaddling. It helps her feel safe and secure like she’s still in the womb. It’s a great way to help soothe a baby.”
Adam gives me a charming smile and then holds her out to me. My expression must reveal my sudden and utter panic. My hands are raised in surrender. “Don’t worry, Mols, my niece won’t bite. I need to toss her diaper, wash my hands, and grab a bottle. You mind holding her? Just sway a bit while you do it and she’ll calm down.”
“Adam,” I argue, but she’s in my arms and he’s gone. She’s so small and tiny and has little peach fuzz that supposedly hair on top of her head. I’m in love. I start swaying like Adam mentioned and those blue Bramwell eyes look up at me. They’re like the blue depths of a waterfall rimmed in a dark blue that’s like the endless bottom of the sea. They’re Adam’s eyes, which match his family’s. I bet when Adam has a child, they’ll look the same color. There’s a pinch in my chest to think of Adam having a child with someone. I want that for him, but it’s hard to imagine.

Discover beautiful South Africa in this sweet, heart-warming Cinderella story about a blogger, a billionaire, and one chance meeting.
When it comes to men, if physiotherapist Caitlin Sutherland didn't have bad luck, she’d have no luck at all. To help cope, Caitlin blogs about the men she meets and the bad dates she’d gone on.
While on duty during the annual Wines to Whales bicycle race, a gorgeous, sweaty cyclist walks in and sets her hormones dancing. But he is Don Cavallo; one of the four Cavallo brothers — hotel tycoons, famous as much for their business skills as for the number of beauties seen on their arms.
Billionaire Don Cavallo has his own issues with the other sex. He has yet to find one who is interested in him, not his money or hotels. But when this sexy physio puts her hands on his back, she not only touches his body, but also his heart.
They've both been burned before, but neither of them can stop themselves from playing with fire.
About the Author:
Elsa has been reading love stories for as long as she can remember and when she ‘met’ the classic authors like Jane Austen, Elizabeth Gaskell, Henry James The Brontë sisters, etc. during her Honours studies, she was hooked for life.
She married her college boyfriend and soul mate and after 45 years, 3 interesting and wonderful children and 4 beautiful grandchildren they are fortunate to live in the picturesque little seaside village of Betty's Bay, South Africa.
She likes the heroines in her stories to be beautiful, feisty, independent and headstrong. And the heroes must be strong but possess a generous amount of sensitivity. They are of course, also gorgeous! Her stories typically incorporate the family background of the characters to better understand where they come from and who they are when we meet them in the story.
