The One, by Vivienne Harris-Scott
A word of caution: Beware of whom you sleep with, they just might change your life!!!

This is the sign the woman should have been wearing...with warning bells too!

An odd encounter. That's how it starts. When Julian McCarty -- self-confessed philanderer, quintessential player, actor, restaurateur and bored millionaire -- collides into a random woman at LAX airport, little does he realize his life as he knows it is over.

He wakes up the next day and finds a note. A stunning chain of events is triggered, and a parti...

Spider Woman's Loom, by Lorie Adair
"In Spider Woman's Loom, Lorie Adair weaves a tale both lyrical and deeply relatable, a story of family, spirituality, and womanhood. Such beautiful language and images to savor, and yet the story is so compelling you can't wait to turn the page." —Tara Ison, author of Rockaway, A Novel
