Sensitivity by Grey Huffington

Years of suppressing my truest desires and most prominent needs in our relationship had my emotions all over the place, heart hardening and every element that made me a woman seem like a flaw. The softness that I was founded on wasn’t welcomed. Over the years, I’d managed to dilute my vulnerability, conceal my pain and deal with my feelings alone. I was merely a shell of the woman that I’d entered the relationship as. But, today, I was reclaiming my power.

| This is a novella. |



Unequivocally, Blindly, Yours by B. Love

Reina has always had one dream – to make it big within the black ballet circuit, but without the money for proper training and attire, that dream seems unattainable. Deciding to use the arts to her advantage, she begins to take small acting and modeling gigs here and there. As fate would have it, Reina is given an opportunity that could change the course of her life – pretend to be amnesia-stricken Hudson Gray’s fiancée, and she will not only have access to the millionaire but the small fortune she’s being offered to play the role as well.

A car accident takes more from Hudson than he knows right away. It not only leaves him in pain physically, but he also suffers from amnesia. Trusting those around him, he never expects that the woman who calls herself his fiancée is a fake while he goes through the process of having to learn and love her all over again.

With time, Reina begins to develop real feelings for Hudson. She believes she’s finally going to have the life she’s always dreamed of and a handsome, wealthy man as a bonus. There’s just… that part about this all being a job… that slowly begins to eat away at Reina. And if she isn’t careful, Hudson will find out the truth. This would cause her to not only lose the man she’s fallen in love with but her opportunity to take over the black ballet circuit as well.

Delain Evans stood on the balcony overlooking American Beach trying to decide if she were ready to get back in the swing of life. Most would say she was already in the swing of life but they didn’t know or have a clue about who she was or what she did. Some called her goddess because of her dark beauty, glowing skin and locs enhanced with red streaks. Others thought of her as a voodoo queen because she was known to have a gift for reading people, seeing things and healing by touch. The truth is she was a woman full of attributes and contradictions who rose from the depths of depression seven years earlier to claim her place in life. That life consisted of working on her holistic jewelry that contained stones filled with herbals, tinctures, and oils that she spoke over. Many lives were changed and she felt she was finally walking in her ‘calling’ as the ancestors called it but she was lonely. Other than her clients in her hug therapy, no one had touched her in eight years, no hugging, kissing or loving. She felt like an Untouched Goddess.
