After a kitchen fire destroys her home, Agnes moves in with her daughter, Betty Jo. Three months later they come to an understanding: neither can tolerate living with the other.

But the real moment of truth comes when Agnes is forced to choose between her feisty self-reliance and the self-sacrifice that comes from caring for others.

This Can’t be Life by Shakara Cannon

How do you keep living when your best friend is brutally murdered and the love of your life may be responsible?

Simone, Stacey, and Talise are best friends navigating through life. During their journey, they brush shoulders with entertainment’s elite and experience great successes.

Simone lives an extravagant lifestyle, which some may say has come to her easily. Non-trusting of men, she remains guarded to protect herself. Star NBA player, Deon Bradford – a good guy looking for a woman to love him for the man he is and not his notoriety – has her in his sights and is making every effort to gain her trust. However, Simone remains resistant, feeling she can do without a man’s love. That is until an unsuspecting man comes into her life and shows her what true love really is, but is he who he portrays himself to be or will Deon ultimately win her heart?

A hopeless romantic, Talise dreams of having a marriage just like her parents. When she meets a man who she feels is her soulmate, but later finds out they stand on opposite sides of religion, will this be a deal breaker?

Stacey is the brother, the strong shoulder, and the comic relief of the three friends, but when Stacey falls in love, he falls hard. Will his need to give in to his heart cost him the ultimate price?

Once the secrets start tumbling out of the closets, no door is able to contain them. Who do you turn to when your reality feels like a dream and you are sure this can’t be life?

The Billionaire’s Secret Heart (A ‘Scandals of the Bad Boy Billionaires’ Romance) by Ivy Layne and Alexa Wilder

Josephine:
It was the worst blind date in the history of the universe, until Holden Winters swept in and rescued me.
Are you kidding? Holden Winters?
A scion of the notorious Winters family, Holden is gorgeous, wealthy, and brilliant. He dates socialites and pop stars, not computer science grad students more comfortable in a hoodie than couture.
Our night together was a fantasy…and a huge mistake.

Holden:
I don’t usually steal other guy’s dates. I don’t have to. A look is all it takes, and the women fall over themselves to get to me. Then I saw Josephine, sitting with her dweeb of a date, just waiting for a man who could appreciate her lush curves and sharp brain. When she ghosted on me, I shouldn’t have been so shocked, but women never walk away from me. Josephine thought she could call the shots – she didn’t realize that a Winters man always gets what he wants. And I wanted her.

The Billionaire’s Secret Heart is a standalone romance with a happy ending. It’s the first in the Scandals of the Bad Boy Billionaire’s series, and introduces the notorious men of the Winters family. You can read it on its own, but you might want to read the others once you get a taste of the Winters men ;}
