Women’s Romance

It’s normal for your washing machine to get more action than you, right?

I wake up, bleary-eyed.

It’s been two years, six months and three hours since I last shaved my legs, and the llama-patterned knickers I’m wearing have seen better days.

We have seven minutes before the kids wake up, and my husband shuffles closer. ‘Ouch,’ he says, a piece of Lego sticking into his back.

Then, a light comes on in the landing. Small footsteps creep down the stairs. A little voice screams, ‘IS SOMEONE COMING TO MAKE BREAKFAST?!’

Legal Thrillers
Criminal defense attorney Talon Winter takes on the case of her life–and her client’s.
Michael Jameson is a successful, forty-something, African American husband and father. And he’s just been charged with a 25-year-old cold case murder, a gang-related drug deal gone horribly wrong. Talon agrees to take the case, but the one question she needs answered is the one question Michael refuses to answer: Did he do it?
Michael insists it doesn’t matter. He’s not the same person he was twenty-five years ago. He’s built a new life in the intervening years, and nothing that happens now will bring the victim back. Instead, he poses a far more provocative question: Would the legal system reach back that far to take away everything built up by a successful White man?
Talon must battle the system itself–as well as a condescending prosecutor, reluctant witnesses, and even her own client–to achieve that most elusive of goals: Justice.

Or so I thought.

Being ambushed by four devastatingly attractive football players wasn’t on my bingo card. Ironically, they seem just as stupefied by me as I am of them.

There’s Decker: the brooding, scowling leader. Then Kylian: the iPad-wielding nerd. Next is Kendrick: the gruff, gorgeous jock. And finally, Locke: the huge, tattooed emo boy.
