by Chloe Peterson

Sophia Cordell fought hard to distance herself from her biological family and their life in the mafia. But when her best friend Harry’s life is threatened, she strikes a deal with her birth family: she must marry Harry’s adult daughter for protection and will owe them a future favor.

Billy Nielsen lost her mother to criminal activity. She vowed never to associate with anyone connected to that world. When she discovers Sophia’s ties to the mafia, her lingering teenage crush on the older woman dulls.

The two women settle into a fake marriage and all the uncomfortable situations it brings. As they adapt to playing the happy couple in public, their friendship blossoms. Soon, they discover a growing mutual attraction.

But Sophia’s family has a dangerous request as payback for protecting Billy and her father. One that might spell the end of her relationship with Billy, who just might be her forever…

by Anne Shade

Janesse Crawford is living the dream. Married to a man who loves her in the beautiful home he built for her with his own hands, she has raised two wonderful children and has a successful career doing what she loves.

But when Janesse’s past comes rushing back in the form of sexy and bold fashion stylist Maya Lawson, the lie she has been living for the past thirty years comes crashing in on her. She let Maya get away years before, but her second chance at true love will cost her the picture-perfect life she’s spent a lifetime building.

It’s not too late for Janesse to break through the mud of her life to blossom into the woman she’s always wished to be for the love she’s always dreamed of. But her path to self-acceptance will risk everything—and possibly everyone—she loves.
