WITH THIS RING
by Cynthia Dane & Hildred Billings

E-book $4.99
Also available in Kindle Unlimited
Release date: November 26, 2017
Romance

Attraction has nothing to do with it. Until it does.

NICOLE DELANEY

Down-on-her-luck heiress Nicole Delaney can’t take another hit. First, her dad dies, leaving in his wake a million debts that wipe out the family coffers. Then, as if that wasn’t bad enough, she now lives in a cramped downtown apartment with her mother. No privacy, and no money!

Only thing worse? Her professors in her fashion school telling her to pick a new job!

Nicole is simultaneously too old to rely on her sickly mother, and also too young to have a real chance to free herself from this unfortunate situation. So what does her mother do?

Call the matchmaker. Surely, there’s some rich guy out there looking for a hot, young wife…

JENNY BISHOP

The once-homeless Jenny Bishop now has it all: a bustling business as a fashion designer, enough money to keep her housed and fed for life, and access to everything she couldn’t have as a foster kid.

Except… there’s one thing missing. A family.

Whether broke or investing millions back into her business, Jenny continues to search for that elusive family she’s always dreamed of having. When time gets in the way of traditional dating, she hits up a matchmaker with the hopes that there’s one woman out there willing to wed a lesbian like her.

TWO RINGS TO RULE THEIR HEARTS

Nicole only agrees to marry Jenny to get her money, but what quickly unfolds is a genuine attraction that blindsides formerly-frigid Nicole and blinds Jenny to the logical solutions she desires. How can they think about a logical marriage of convenience when they’re too busy jetting off to Hawaii for inspiration and… “inspiration?”

Too bad. Because one of the nastiest women to ever play with a billion dollars is on a mission to destroy their blossoming love. So much for that June wedding and honeymoon in Hawaii!

The Bookstore, fifteen years of love and counting tells the tale of somewhat wild and raunchy playgirl Vivian Johnson, who is also Leah Williams’ (Forever Woman and Sweet Sarah’s Bluez) editor and good friend. Fifteen years ago, while working on one of her client’s book tours, she meets an interesting younger woman. Patricia Davis has just opened a women’s bookstore on a shoestring budget. Vivian is impressed that such a young woman from Generation X would bet her entire future on opening a woman’s bookstore and community center in the heart of a low-income neighborhood.

They bump heads at first. Vivian’s client, Melba Farris (Mr. Jefferson’s Piano and Other Central Harlem Stories), asks her to set up a book signing in the bookstore, but Pat’s womanizing partner, Etta, wants more than a book signing from Vivian. The two partners argue about Vivian, causing Pat to say things to Vivian that she has to apologize for later. The book signing is exceptionally successful, but the two women decide not to see each other again.

As fate would have it, a tragic fire and a murderous cover up throw the two women together again. While Vivian helps Pat get through Etta’s funeral and mourning period, the two women begin to see each other in a different light. Can these two women from different generations and backgrounds get on the same page in The Bookstore?
