When Charlie Blake goes out scouting for a man at a club, she isn’t playing for keeps. Her life is too crazy complicated and busy to get involved with another guy who could screw her over.
Brad Jackson has a painful history with women. He has no intention to lower his guard enough to trust again. The burns remain too raw. From the moment Brad spots her, his conviction crumbles. In its wake is possibility. But it’ll take more than sexual attraction to pave their way to trust and love.
Can there be a happily ever after… This time?
Charlie has my full attention as she sits beside me on my couch. Her head is down, so her eyes are hidden from me. Completely freaking out about what she has to say, I try to appear relaxed when she starts to talk.
“To explain this in detail will be hard for me. I’ve not had to tell anyone or talk about it for over a year. And depending on your reaction, I’m… willing to try to tell you.” Lifting her head, her eyes snap up to mine. “The brunt of what I have to say though is the fact that I am a single mother.” For a few moments, the room is silent because it takes me a second to wrap my head around what Charlie just said.
“What?” I ask.
Her eyes sparkle with something fierce. “I have a baby boy, but the father is not in the picture. At all.”
A million questions race through my head. Who is the father? Where is he? Why isn’t he in the picture? How long has she had the baby by herself? What does he look like? How old is the baby? I absolutely love kids; my sister has twins and I spoil them as much as she allows me to. I contemplate how fitting it is that what we both have to talk about revolves around children. Choosing one of my many questions, I break the silence with a small smile. “How old is he?”
Charlie’s eyes widen. “What?”
“How old is your baby, Charlie?”
“A-about eight months now.”
“Is he as beautiful as you?” My words are obviously the wrong thing to say because her eyes start to water. “What is it, baby? What did I say?” Heart beating faster than ever, I reach for her hand and grasp it in mine.
“Nothing.” She sniffles and smiles. “He is beautiful.”

Time For Love
by Laura N. Andrews
Genre: Contemporary M/M Romance
Endearing and shy, Nicholas Edwards prefers to stay in most nights. On one of his rare evenings out, he meets confident businessman Caleb Roimata.
Although at first Caleb seems arrogant and charming, the irresistible man encourages Nicholas to come out of his shell, and together, they fall into a relationship full of passion and love.
When Caleb’s past causes doubt to rise and drama to unfold, will this couple be there for each other and be what the other needs?
And when all is said and done, will there still be… time for love?
“You heard me,” Caleb replies quietly. He’s completely still as my eyes re-find his. And again, the intensity causes me to break the contact, my gaze falling to Caleb’s lips once more.
“Damn, your eyes are beautiful Nicholas. They’re so bright and blue,” Caleb says.
I only take in the first part. “What do you mean, beautiful? Are you drinking on the job?”
I tease. The man has to be on something to say that. Of course, he also called me adorable. Definitely under the influence.
“I allow myself one drink. Not enough to diminish my ability to see the truth. Don’t you know how cute you are?” When I don’t respond, Caleb leans in closer. “I want to kiss you.”
Again, he’s met with my shocked silence. “Do you want to kiss me, Nicholas?” I nod, and he places his drink down before standing up abruptly. “Come.” He takes my hand, and a hot current rushes up my arm, so distracting that I let him pull me from my chair and lead me through the
“Where are we going?” I ask, uncertain and excited.
“My office,” Caleb says over his shoulder. Just as I start to wonder why he’s taking me to his office for a kiss as opposed to here, he suddenly stops and lowers his mouth to my ear. “I like to keep my personal life very private, and I have a feeling one kiss with you won’t be enough.” He nips my earlobe and I gasp.
I can only smile and nod in agreement before he winks and takes me with him.
