From contemporary fiction author, S.M. Grady, comes a cozy romance novella about the trials of love, heartbreak, and second chances.

Kristen was heartbroken when she realized that her long-term boyfriend, Nick, never planned to marry her. Refusing to wallow in despair, she picked up the pieces and moved on faster than anyone expected—or approved of. Now, happily married to Isaac and enjoying her new life, a bizarre medical problem keeps thrusting her into the past and under a pile of memories best left untouched.

Isaac is doing his best to be patient. He has loved Kristen from the moment they met, but after two years of marriage, he still feels like there’s something holding her back. No matter what he tries, he can’t seem to bridge the distance between them. He can’t help but question if she’ll ever truly break free of the past and embrace their future together.

Nick knows that he blew it when he let Kristen go, but the last thing he wants to do is stand in the way of her newfound happiness. She moved on and he intends to do the same. He’s ready to accept that he’s lost her for good, until a frantic phone call leads to a night neither one of them can forget. Now it’s up to him to prove that what they shared is worth a second chance. Hopefully he’s not too late.

#Featured “Beach Thing” by DL White

Wade Marshall, super producer to one of hip hop’s brightest stars, was supposed to spend the summer on Black Diamond getting away from the rush of Brooklyn, ridding himself of the distractions that had been impacting his work so he can do what he does best – make beats. But the day he meets Ameenah, he becomes consumed by an entirely different and more attractive distraction–his bold, beautiful, sexy neighbor with the “glorious hips” and a penchant for ice cream.

Ameenah Porter, daughter of successful New York restaurateurs, moves to the beach town of Black Diamond to fulfill her dream of opening a smoothie shop. She doesn’t need the distraction of a new man but the tall, dark and handsome Wade, who’s staying in the giant sized home at the end of her block, is irresistible.

Ameenah’s days at Tikis & Cream are spent cooling off her customers with her gourmet smoothie blends. Her nights on the shores of Black Diamond Bay are enchanting and romantic, and soon Wade and Ameenah find themselves in the middle of a Beach Thing… a fun, meaningless tryst that will end when the summer is over.

Or will it?

Wade is returning to Brooklyn at the end of the summer. Ameenah lives on Black Diamond. Neither want this Beach Thing to end… so is this fling really a fling or is it the beginning of something real… and will they realize it in time?

Welcome to the sovereign Kingdom of Bagumi

The Kingdom of Bagumi is one of the last intact African monarch states. Treaties and alliances over several centuries have ensured their continued dominance in the region.

All Kayla Jones is good at is work. So, when her friend talks her into taking a solo vacation in a beach town, work remains her foremost thought, and she rear-ends a stranger’s truck while on a business call.

But even though she seems to reciprocate his feelings, she’s never been around kids, and his puppy terrifies her. So what happens when they realize they can’t be apart, especially when her vacation ends and she gets a promising call that could heighten her career?
