Five years ago Guy Wiley decided to help Lucia’s family anonymously by setting up a charity called the Farm Help Society. It was a brilliant idea. He got to save the girl he loved from a life of poverty, all while masquerading as a poor farmer. He wanted her to choose him for who he was and not his wealth.
The plan would have worked flawlessly, except that Ace Jackson was also interested in Lucia.
Ace was serious competition. He was a handsome doctor who liked Lucia and was not going to let Farmer Guy stand in the way of him having the beautiful girl of his dreams.
Now, Guy was in a quandary. Should he blow his cover so that he could level the playing field, or should he let Lucia decide who she wants to spend the rest of her life with, the poor farmer or the wealthy doctor?
Who would be the perfect guy for Lucia?

Ready for Love
As manager to some of the country’s hottest stars, Denise Mitchell has it all and then some. Fabulous career? Check. Brownstone in SoHo, NYC? Check. Enviable lifestyle? Check. She works hard, plays even harder, and lives life to the fullest.
Enter NBA superstar Drew Smith. Fine as hell, down to earth, and the best sex she’s ever had. But Drew is ready to settle down and change his ways, and he’s set his sights on Denise Mitchell. She’s his every fantasy rolled into one luscious package. The problem? She’s determined to keep their relationship casual.
Well…we’ll see about that.
Charmaine shifted in her seat and uncrossed her legs. “Excuse me, I need to go to the restroom,” she said to the group.
“I need to use the restroom myself. I’ll show you where it’s located.” Malcolm rose from his chair and pulled hers out. He knew from past experience that the restrooms were in a secluded corner of the restaurant and were easy to miss if you weren’t paying attention.
As they walked toward the restrooms, Malcolm’s hand grazed her lower back, close to the curve of her bottom. Charmaine’s back stiffened for a moment before her body melted into his touch. Once out of sight of the other diners, Malcolm let his hand drift to her bottom and squeezed. Still as juicy and firm as he remembered.
Charmaine’s low moan reached his ears and she stopped in the middle of the secluded hallway. Standing behind her, wrapping his arms around her waist, he ground his erection against her derriere, both of them gasping at the friction.
Malcolm guided Charmaine by the hips, steering them toward the alcove tucked past the restrooms. On his first visit to this restaurant, he had come by the alcove by accident while looking for the men’s room. He leaned down and nuzzled the curve of her neck, inhaling her scent, before placing a soft kiss there. When she moaned, he grinned and licked a path from beneath her ear to the curve of her neck. Once they got to the alcove he spun her around, plastered his front on hers, and braced her back against the wall.
Looking down into her dark brown almond-shaped eyes, all of those old feelings hit him. Not just the lust—although that still was his predominant thought—but all the small things that he used to love about her. Like her inability to hide her emotions from him and how she reacted to his touch.
“Mal…mmm…Malcolm, what are we…what are we doing?” Charmaine gasped.
He moved closer, pressing light butterfly kisses against her neck. She felt so good against him, and he loved the way she arched into his touch and wrapped her arms around his neck, pressing her body closer to his.
He almost didn’t respond to her question, but when she gasped his name and repeated her words, he pulled back, breathing harshly. Her skin was just as smooth as ever and he was dangerously close to being lost in her. His eyes met her dilated ones, and it took every bit of self-control he had not to devour her on the spot. Instead, he let the back of his hand caress the side of her face as he stared into her eyes.
“This is a proper greeting, not that sanitized one you gave me earlier,” he murmured.
“Proper greeting? Sanitized?” Charmaine choked out, her body slightly arching away from his embrace and arms loosening from around his neck.
“Yes, did you really think a simple ‘hi’ would be enough for me?” he asked.
“I thought saying hi after not seeing each other for years was an acceptable greeting. What did you expect?” she asked, head tilted to the side, body still leaning slightly away in his embrace.
“A hug to start off,” Malcolm murmured, drawing her back to his body as he focused his attention on nuzzling her neck.
“Well, you’re taking a lot more than a hug now,” she said, shivering.
He smiled against her neck and closed both eyes, squeezing her body a bit more tightly to his.

A heart-stirring novel of family and forgiveness from bestselling author Ashley Farley.
In her grand home in Charleston, Willa Bellemore raised two girls during the tumultuous 1970s. One was her daughter, Lady. The other was Lady’s best friend, Nell—adopted after the sudden, heartbreaking death of her mother, the Bellemores’ beloved maid. Willa showered Nell with love and support, all the while ignoring the disdainful whispers of her neighbors. After all, they were family. Nell and Lady were sisters at heart—sisters who vowed to never let anything come between them.
Then, on the night of Lady’s sixteenth birthday, something went terribly wrong, sparking painful secrets and bitter resentments that went unspoken for three decades.
Now Willa is dying, and Lady and Nell—each with a teenager of her own—are brought together after all these years. It’s Willa’s last wish. The time has come to confront what happened on that fateful night. But it may take a tragic twist of fate to reconcile the past and come to terms with the true meaning of family.
