Two modern-day romance novellas
‘MADDIE & MASON’
Her husband’s murder made national headlines – as did all his sordid secrets. Heartbroken and humiliated, Maddie Nibless quietly takes back her maiden name and retreats into solitude – which deepens when she unexpectedly runs into the unspoken first love of her life, Mason Gentries. But after they part ways again abruptly, she becomes even more reclusive. She only shows up at her twenty-year class reunion to keep a promise she made to her best friend – and the whispers start as soon as she arrives.
Everyone is stunned at Mason Gentries’ transformation from shy, overweight loner to handsome, muscular technology tycoon. His fellow alumni are entranced, vying for his attention. But he only came to try to reconnect one last time with his secret crush, the girl he’s loved since elementary school and who he foolishly walked away from seven months before – Maddie.
When she leaves the reunion abruptly, he knows following her could be his last chance to capture her heart.
Will Mason finally have the courage to tell Maddie how he feels? Will Maddie be able to overcome the her past and allow herself to try for happiness once more?
‘TRIXIE & DREW’
Trixie Benning– the no-nonsense Accounting Manager working her way up the corporate ladder. She is highly intelligent, introverted, and for the most part, steadfast about keeping personal and work separated – except when it comes to him.
Drew Alexander– the President and CEO that seems to be her polar-opposite in personality. A confident extrovert with the type of ‘love-and-leave’ history that the tabloids salivate over. He’s used to getting what he wants – and he’s not happy with being told ‘no.’
When Trixie uncovers fraudulent activity at the company, she and Drew must work closely together to repair the damage. But the more time they spend together, the greater the emotional danger to them both.
They just might find the love of a lifetime – if they stop running from it long enough.
