Dani Wilder only intended to go to a fundraiser and donate money to a worthy cause. She had no idea that she’d meet the love of her life that night.

That chance meeting – it was with Peyton Gloss, the world’s most famous music star, who also happened to be a woman.

Peyton had only planned on performing that night. When she’d seen the most beautiful woman in the world in the crowd, she had to talk to her.

When the two women spend time together, though, it’s clear to both of them that this is more than merely a close friendship.

In this prequel to “All the Love Songs,” find out what happened the night these two met, and discover how their relationship began.

She has lots of plans for her time in office, but those plans are forgotten when a crowd of angry protestors start to gather outside the embassy—bringing both sporadic gunfire and concern for the Ambassador’s safety.
