Marriage proposal or business proposition?

But here I am, contemplating a contract that could change my life. I need the money, and Dru seems nice enough. Yet, the closer I get to Dru, the more I wonder if my heart is part of the bargain.

Dru Martin
Running an empire is easy; it’s love that’s complicated. So, when my mother gave me an ultimatum to settle down or forfeit the family empire, I did what any savvy businessman would do—I proposed a deal: a simple contract of marriage to Charisse, a woman intriguing enough to make this charade bearable. If we follow the plan with scheduled kisses and coordinated social media posts, we can convince everyone we’re in love. But when the lines start to blur, I’m left questioning whether this arrangement is just about business, or something more.

How Do You Want It by Kennedy B.

Ten years was a long time, an even longer time to carry pain and resentment; the longest time to hold a grudge. Rhumani never dreamed she’d be faced with the history she spent the last decade of her life trying to bury. That was until she got set up and history was standing at the end of the table in need.

They said if you loved something, let it go. If it comes back; it was always yours. But if it doesn’t? It never was. Kaleem wondered if that still stood even though he hadn’t willingly let her go. Kaleem had his fair share of abandonment—first his mother and father, then her. The last thing he wanted was help from the very person who’d abandoned him ten years ago after doing the unthinkable, or so he thought.

History had a way of flipping things and most of all giving a bullhorn to trauma. With these two anything was possible, but only a few things were plausible. Was forgiveness on the table or had ten years just been too long?
