Sometimes life came down to moments. Moments that seemed so insignificant that we didn’t know how it might impact the rest of our lives. In a moment, a little girl scared to hurt her best friend said no, and that changed everything. Now, in this moment, I was a woman, and I was terrified, but I wanted to take a leap and believe.

ExcerptGuilt raced through me, a tangible thing that made me want to curl up and hide. She was so pale… her features drawn, normally vibrant hair lank against the pillow. “Her body’s naturally healing,” Abi grumbled. “She’ll be fine if we can get blood for her to drink.” “That won’t be a problem. Didn’t you say that the Council was able to call someone last night to help Robbie’s aunt?” Theo asked. “Yeah….” Abi nodded. “The Mambas run several blood banks here.” Why was this happening? Why would someone hurt Maggie? She was the kindest person in the world….Abi pulled her phone out, and Theo put his hand on her wrist. “Shouldn’t we maybe call the Council first?” “No,” I said firmly, causing both Abi and Theo to look up at me, startled. “No… not yet. We have to go to the park.” “Sugar, what are you saying?” “If we call the Council, they’ll say to let them handle it. But they handled things last night and look where we are. We don’t know who did this, and if we don’t put a stop to it now, then we continue to be in danger. We don’t know if the Council will ever be able to figure out who did this. But we can. If we show up like they’re expecting us to.” Abi chewed on her lip. “What about Mom?” she asked, her voice cracking, which tore at my heart. “How’s this? Abs, you said that you know someone who can bring blood, yeah? Just call them and have them bring Maggie the blood. The three of us will go, as planned.” Abi nodded. “Yeah. Yeah, okay.” She turned from us and focused on Maggie and her phone “Theo….” He turned to me and I swallowed hard. “What’s Mother’s phone number?” “Sugar…?” His tone spoke of concern, but I shook my head. “Please?” He shifted his focus, his eyes fluttering closed for a brief second before he opened them and held out his phone to me. With trembling fingers I pushed the Call button and held the phone to my ear. “Wilhelmina Ramsayi,” Mother answered. Her voice cut through me, leaving me breathless. With a voice that sounded so much stronger than I felt, I asked, “Mother, are you still in San Diego?” I could have asked Theo to track her. There was a reason I hadn’t. It didn’t matter if she was here or not. She was needed now. There was a pause that extended for a beat too long. I was about to check to see if I had lost connection when her very clipped response came. “Yes.” “You’re needed at Scripps Mercy Hospital on Fifth Avenue. There’s been an assassination attempt on Maggie. Abi has called for blood to be delivered, and we need to make sure she will be tended to as the three of us go and find out who is behind this.” I hung up.

M/M Romance, Best friends to lovers
Release Date: 01.21.20
Cover Designer: Alexandria Corza
Levi’s best friend, Adam, has always been larger than life: a smoking-hot billionaire hotelier with imposing charm. When Manhattan stops being big enough for both of them—at least if Levi ever wants to fall out of love with Adam—Levi accepts a job in in San Francisco.
But when Adam pulls an Adam—upending Levi’s calm new life with a plea to lend his photography talent to a worthy cause—Levi is helpless to resist. Adam will be the first Fortune 100 CEO to come out of the closet in grand fashion. He needs a trusted ally on his PR team. And he only needs Levi to help for three weeks.
Levi accepts on one hidden condition: he’ll keep his new friends away from Adam, certain that if they get a whiff, they’ll fall under Adam’s spell. Bent on keeping his two lives separate, Levi barely makes it through the first two weeks unscathed.
Then, Adam drops another bomb….
Excerpt“Leila and I broke up.” The tip of Adam’s nose had begun to pink, and his cheeks were doing the same. Levi wished them back inside the airport, wished to divine whether Adam’s color owed to emotion or to the winter of San Francisco spring wind. “When?” Levi blurted inelegantly. Adam scanned. If they wanted to reach the limo line, they had to go to an outer curb across the street. Adam started walking and Levi kept in step, barely heeding traffic to study Adam’s face. On the crosswalk, Adam replied, “A couple months ago.” Puzzlement pierced through Levi’s stark relief. It was stupid, the way he was happier when Adam was single. Such news delivered the same foolish rush of hope that swelled over Levi when one of his celebrity crushes filed for divorce or came out. So what if Adam broke up with his girlfriend or fine-ass Wentworth Miller came out of the closet? It didn’t mean Levi had a chance. The color on Adam’s cheeks as he spoke his confession was definitely a blush of shame. What kind of best friend forgot to mention for “a couple of months” that it was Splitsville between him and the girl his father wanted him to marry? “You wanted to tell me in person you broke up with your girlfriend? That’s your big news?” Adam had the decency to look chagrined. “None of it has to do with her.” “You’re being cryptic,” Levi pointed out. “Adam. What the hell is going on?” Levi’s heart raced faster than it had when he’d merely believed his best friend, whom he’d nursed no small crush on over the years, had taken himself permanently off the market. But Adam was being weird—his Adam, the most shameless and least apologetic person Levi had ever met. Had he screwed up in Tehran and put the company in jeopardy? Lost his fortune? Committed a crime? And what was the favor? Did Adam need Levi to hide him in Argentina with his grandparents, or to donate a kidney? Oh God. Was Adam sick? Adam looked over his shoulder, paranoid, as if he would be recognized at any moment. He was far from famous, but he’d had his share of press. “Let’s talk about it in the limo,” Adam whispered, splitting his attention between placating Levi and signaling to the car bearing his hotel’s name. “It’s nothing bad. It’s just… not public yet.” “What’s not public?” Levi pressed the moment the limo stopped at the curb. Adam threw him a pointed look and sighed. “I’m coming out. Again.” “Coming out of what?”

The Royals rule here.
We say when to jump and how high, and the rest follow like lemmings because to do otherwise is social suicide.
As cheer captain, I have everything I’ve ever wanted, including Scarsdale’s star quarterback, Navrin Fox.
There’s just one problem … his twin brother.
Lev Fox knows exactly how to push my buttons—he’s been doing it since childhood, after all—but when I give into my baser instincts and let the boy I hate best me in a battle of wills, it’s not only my reputation as Queen Bee on the line, it’s my heart too.
Secrets, betrayal, and lies—that’s what we Royals do best.
But no one ever said anything about love.
“I am happy with you.” I sob, and the irony isn’t lost on me.
