Overview

Casey never had a really serious relationship; while Nicolette just got out of a bad one.

Nicolette Marchand relocated to South Florida to get away from an abusive lover. In her new home, she loves the sun, the beaches and the bookshop owner with the hazel eyes and beautiful smile. Spending her evenings in her home away from home, life was really good. At least, until the phone started ringing.

Casey Addison, bookshop owner, was a native of South Florida. She never really cared about anything or anyone other than her store before now. A chance encounter with a fellow book lover changed all that. She thoroughly enjoys the company of her bookshop's new fixture. Unfortunately, someone is threatening her new found happiness and Casey gets caught in the middle.

Helping each other, will these two women discover a love they never knew they needed? And can Nicolette open herself up and trust that together, they are both…

Meet the Author

Born and raised in Jamaica, Anika now resides in South Florida. She works in the administrative office of her local library, the perfect setting for her, if only she didn't have to work all the time. Anika created poetry for a number of years, before the voices of her heroes and heroines got louder and more insistent than she could ignore. Writing is a dream come true for her and being published is definitely the most wonderful by-product. The one thing Anika longs for above everything is a time when all that is required of her is a daily devotion to reading and writing.

Read an Excerpt

Nicolette Marchand exited the bus at the corner of 85th Street and 10th Avenue. Standing on the sidewalk, she scanned the streets in all directions, trying to get her bearings and take in all the little town had to offer. This was her first foray into the shopping district of her new home in South Florida, and she couldn’t wait to explore.

Smiling at the people she passed, most of them eyeing her suspiciously, she said a quick hello to the ones who smiled back. Used to small town hospitality, Nicolette was surprised at the lack of response. This level of coldness from others was jolting. Up to a week ago, she lived in a little town near Glendale, Arizona. She had liked that town but certain circumstances had necessitated her departure and her employer, Hastings Conglomerate, had granted her relocation request.

She loved books, enjoyed reading every chance she got. As a matter of fact, her tote currently had three books stashed in it...just in case. The bookshop advertised the sale of new and used books, spanning all genres.

Entering the store, she smiled at the little tinkling bell going off above her head. The bookshop carried the scent of books and coffee. And even with the musky used book smell, the aromas were tantalising and inviting.

Strategically arranged near the front of the store were four large lounge chairs. The soft chocolate-brown chairs added to the inviting d
