There are seven Shaws, each one with their own story to tell.
This is the story of Joshua and Simone–when love is lost…
Joshua, the eldest of the Shaw seven, was well know for flashing his cunning smile and swirling words, using his looks to bring all the prettiest girls crawling at his feet. In his world, there was no such word as no. So imagine his surprise when a mysterious beauty who seemed to have popped up out of thin air, flat out gave him the opposite of what he was used to when he tried to make his move.
Simone wasn’t typical by any standards, and wasn’t at all interested in dating the high school jock, better known as Joshua Shaw. But as was the usual result, Josh won her heart; holding on to it long enough to one day make her his wife.
Though Joshua loved Simone enough to settle down, his playing days were far from over. And though Simone loved him enough to repeatedly offer up forgiveness, even the strongest woman can only take so much.
Will forgiveness save this marriage like it has in the past, or will this seperation be the beginning of the end?

DECISIONS…: A Cinnamon Black Book by Angelia Vernon Menchan
Delia stood in the archway watching Zen, Marcellus and Thane play with their son Zenith. Actually, Zenith was Thane’s son born of a surrogate eighteen months earlier because Delia was far too old to birth any babies. And after several years of marriage and being her much younger husband, he wanted a child and had one. Zenith was a good boy but Delia never felt natural with him. Her kids were thirty-eight and thirty… her mothering days were done. Thane had done everything to make it easy for her, including a nanny and people like Zen and Cinnamon, who stepped in so they could be alone and travel, but it was still too much. She loved her husband but it might be time to let go. The pleasure of having Zenith was immeasurable for Thane. He was an amazing father and adored his son.
Feeling Delia’s eyes, Thane glanced up with sparkling eyes and nudged Zenith who spotted Delia and waved but continued clinging to Zen, who he adored. Zen was also expecting and looked beautiful at five months pregnant. She and Marcellus were engaged but hadn’t set a date but they were definitely in love and the right age to be new parents. Both were on the cusp of thirty.
Getting up, Thane made his way to his wife who was so beautiful to him. Instead of the French twist she had worn for years, her hair was cut short, showing her face.
“Hey beautiful, this is a surprise.” Thane said after embracing and kissing his wife.
“For us both. I was coming to invite you to lunch. I though Zenith was at daycare.”
“He was, but Zen picked him up. They’re going to see her dad and Zenith is going with them. Come in.” Thane said, feeling reserve in his wife. With reluctance and a huge lump in her throat, Delia walked into the room, gingerly sitting on a chair. Zen smiled at her, encouraging Zenith to go to her but he giggled, staying close to her.
“How are you Mrs. Whitton?” Marcellus asked.
“I’m fine, when is your baby due?” Delia asked, sounding peevish. Zen knew her and continued playing with Zenith. Thane glanced at his wife, whose face was pinched.
“In about four months.” Marcellus said, his eyes floating to Zen.
“When’s the wedding?” Delia asked.
“When Zen and I decide.” Marcellus said, his voice going cool. He knew everyone thought Zen was holding out on marriage but they were both waiting. They were excited about the unplanned pregnancy and loved the relationship they were building.
Delia’s eyes filled and she stood, strutting from the room. Thane quickly followed her.
“Dee, what’s wrong? You were fine this morning.”
“Nothing… look, I’m going for a drive. We can have dinner later.” Leaning in, Delia kissed Thane and fled.
“Daddy, I go.” Zenith said behind Thane and he turned to scoop up his son, burying his face in his neck and tickling him. Giggles filled the office.
“Is everything okay?” Zen asked Thane, as Marcellus and Zenith walked outside to get the car. Thane shrugged. He honestly had no idea. Delia had been running hot and cold for months. Years actually, but it was worse now. Zen hugged him briefly before heading out.
Thane felt things were heading for some kind of climax with his marriage.

Love Doesn’t Live Here Anymore (Loving a Walker: Corey’s Story) by Trina Crooks

It was not something she was looking for but Corey definitely turned out to be exactly what she needed.
All is going great in this uninvited yet much enjoyed love affair. However, will Corey be able to forgive Danielle after a terrible secret she is keeping from him comes to the light?
