Can't Wait For Love by Parker Jones:

Brittany Taylor is single and living her best life, at least, that’s what she’s telling herself. Giving up on the man she had loved most of her adult life would take some getting used to. However, rediscovering her freedom was as good of a place as any to start. When a co-worker makes a play to get to know her better, she can feel her spirit shift. Just when she was ready to live without love it seems love isn’t done with her yet.


Dustin Waters is respectable and takes his job as head of security seriously. As a hands-on father, his focus is constantly between his son and work with little else to capture his attention. Relationships are of no interest as his heart has already been broken by the dissolution of his family. Yet, when a woman he sees every day makes him ponder pursuit, what he thought was out of bounds may take him past his limits.


Are Brittany and Dustin ready to do the unthinkable? Will she confide her secrets in him? Has his heart healed enough to completely let her in?


Bambi by Ladii Nesha:

Finding Kristmas by Bella Jay


She returned home to find herself. He returned to bury his mom. Neither were looking for love but during Christmas time, love is always in the air.


Kristmas Kasey hasn’t been back to her hometown Bexley, GA since she left six years ago. She never thought she’d want to come back but after a series of misfortunate events she decided to come home to recenter and find herself during her favorite time of the year. Instead, she finds her high school sweetheart and feelings she thought were gone come crashing back.


Jonathan ‘Deuce’ Jacobs always hated home and avoided it like the plague but his mother’s rapidly declining health landed him back on its soil. The pressure to be great, the pressure to go pro, and the pressure to make something of himself were the only things he could remember about Bexley. And Kristmas. Kristmas had been his first everything and after they went their separate ways he never thought he’d see her again. But what’s Christmas in Bexley without Kristmas?


Finding Kristmas is a novella that takes two former lovers on a whirlwind holiday romance of reconnecting during a bittersweet time.


Holidaze by Bella Jay


Holidaze: the act of being so wrapped up in the joy and haze of the holiday magic, you might mistake something casual for something much more


Nola Brandy had one thing on her mind when she booked a two-week trip to a ski resort: write her book by any means necessary. And if that meant concocting a plan to make the stranger she was stuck with fall for her in order to get a story out of it, then so be it. Her plan was foolproof because Rubricks Anderson was far from her type. He was just collateral damage or at least that was all he was supposed to be.


The only thing that Bricks Anderson gave his time and attention to was his business. He’d made it a point to not get too close to anyone and women were no exception — even having sex with them had dropped off his radar. So when he laid eyes on the person he’s stuck in a car with for ten hours against his will, he’s conflicted about what to do about the instant attraction he has to her until she opens her mouth and he’s almost sure his body is out of its mind. Magnolia Brandy was too much of everything.


What starts out as a mutual dislike, quickly takes a turn for something neither Bricks nor Nola were expecting and once secrets are revealed, the true question remains: was all of it just a holidaze or was it real?
