When middle age hits – it hits hard. Marriages fall apart, children leave for college, and jobs disappear. The six women of NOVEL WOMEN stand at this crossroad in their lives when their beloved book club goes on hiatus for the summer.
Through their summer of confusion and rediscovery, heartache and loss, these NOVEL WOMEN manage to grow closer by the ever-enduring power of love and friendship. And along the way they have the best sex of their lives.
Naina – a free spirited, happy-go-lucky girl with a family which adores her to the core feels her life is complete when she meets the man of her dreams. Little did she know that her dreams were short lived and her picture perfect life changes into a complete mess in an instant and she is forced into a relationship with the man she hates the most.
A career ending injury forced Creed Lachlan out of the Navy SEALs. Now he works as a freelance contractor for a highly classified sub-set of Homeland Security, the Bone Frog Division. His country calls when it needs his elite skills. His current mission is to identify the production site for emerging “dirty” bombs. If that dictate wasn’t enough, his team must locate the missing CIA agents who’d previously tracked the weapons, and that team’s last known location was Cuba. His contact in Cuba wasn’t the sixty-year-old man he’d been told to expect, but a sultry beauty hellbent on driving him insane.
Mariella Diaz’s uncle sat atop the largest black-market organization in Cuba. Outmaneuvering the corrupt communist regime to provide the people of her country with necessities was second nature. Even so, keeping the sexy American and his team out of danger would require extra diligence. In a game of cat and mouse played out in a deadly arena, Mariella faces a risk more perilous than capture, torture, and imprisonment. She risked losing her heart to Creed Lachlan.
Creed wanted Mariella. He wanted to ease the pain that peeked through her bravado, to love and protect the woman who defied and antagonized him at every turn. Creed’s only concern, could she love a SEAL, forever?
