Remnants of Love: A “Still Love” Novella by Deshon Dreamz
Zoe Harris has been through her fair share of unstable relationships, and it’s safe to say she’s over it. In Zoe’s world, men were all thrown into a box and pushed into the furthest crevice of her brain. She takes a vow to herself to never allow another man to place her in a position of complete vulnerability. Zoe has never lacked attention from the opposite sex, but it was for all the wrong reasons. In most cases, men looked at Zoe as the “Trophy Girl” and not the wife. She refused to be casted for that role again.
Xavier sees Zoe as everything except a Trophy, but after years of banter, he’s unsure if he can shift the opinion she had formed of him in her head. She refuses to give him the time of day, that is until he propositions her, asking that she gives him a fresh start.
A new beginning led to far more than either of them expect, but it’s a journey that neither of them plan to shy away from.
*The “Still Love” shorts are happy for now tales of love, friendship, and commitment. Each couple is related in some way, but all stories can be read individually.*

One Night With You by Marie Nash
“What are you doing here?” Brooklyn Jamison opened the door and stared into the eyes of the one man she couldn’t stand. Never mind her pulse rate accelerating every time she laid eyes on him. That was beside the point. She disliked him for that reason alone. How dare he get her all hot and bothered. He was a womanizer who chased anything with breasts. She wanted him so bad she fantasized about what it would be like to have his muscular arms wrapped around her all night.
So what was Wilson Chaney doing at her door? He didn’t like her, and she certainly didn’t like him, even though he was a friend of her brother. They had already seen each other once tonight at her brother’s thirty-fifth birthday party. She was tired and not in the mood for another round with Wil. Pretending to dislike him was exhausting.
Wilson looked into the eyes of the woman who gave him wet dreams. A woman he couldn’t seem to get along with, but couldn’t stop thinking about. No matter how many times he tried to be cordial, she gave him push back. And he had tried plenty of times over the years. Wilson was best friends with Brooklyn’s brother, Carter. He and Carter had been friends since childhood.
No matter how long they had been friends, Carter would kill him if he knew his childhood buddy had the hots for his baby sister. The two of them had chased women together so Carter knew what kind of man he was. Yet, here he was standing in front of the woman he couldn’t get out of his mind or his dreams. This little stunt could very well be the death of his friendship with a life-long friend.
Wilson couldn’t help himself. Brook was beyond beautiful and smart. The very sight of her set his body on fire. She pretty much ignored him whenever they were in each other’s presence. But body language was something else. He had a strong feeling it was just a facade on her part.
Tonight at Carter’s party, Wilson caught Brook staring at him several times throughout the evening. There was a look of need and longing in those beautiful hazel eyes. She wanted him. And he wanted her so badly he ache. Tonight, one way or another, he intended to get some answers and some relief.
Wilson gazed into Brooklyn, stormy eyes, and answered her question. “We need to talk.” He brushed past her and walked into her townhouse.
Brooklyn closed the door and crossed her arms. “Now, just a damn minute! Who do you think you are waltzing in here like you own the place. And by what stretch of the imagination do we have anything to talk about? We don’t even like each other, Wilson. So why don’t you tell me what you’re doing here.”
Brooklyn left him standing in the foyer and walked into the living room. He didn’t say a word, but she knew he followed; she could smell him. She closed her eyes and inhaled. She had no idea what cologne he wore, but it was so arousing. It was messing with her senses.
“Brook, look at me.”
She wanted to ignore him, but she turned around and faced him. He was so handsome it was criminal. No man had a right to look that good. She ran her eyes over him and got weak in the knees. Earlier tonight at the party, he had his latest with him. Another woman with more boobs than brains. They seem to be his favorite.
Wilson was a very successful investment banker who ran CJ Financial Group with her brother. He could have any woman he wanted and judging by his past conquests, he did. As with so many men of his caliber, women didn’t last long. He must have gotten rid of the one he flaunted tonight. Otherwise, he wouldn’t be here. The poor woman probably thought she would be the one to claim the heart of the handsome playboy. Fat chance of that happening.
“You’re here, so talk, Wil. I was about to take a shower and go to bed, so make it fast.”
He closed the space between them. “I think it’s time we addressed this issue between us, don’t you?”
