A journey of discovery and a new future

By Mika Jolie
Series: Martha's Way - Book 2
Publication Date: November 19, 2014
Publisher: Secret Cravings Publishing
Genre: Adult Contemporary Romance
Elementary school teacher Liliana Serrano has never been one to let others determine her future. Whether it’s her pack of three overly protective brothers or her Puerto-Rican, American heritage, she stands on her own. Which is exactly how she entered her arrangement with Adam Aquilani. The hot formula one driver is aloof, detached and not interested in relationship. After a cheating fiancĂ©, no strings attached sex was just what she needed.
Except one year later, they’re still hooking up and things aren’t so clear cut anymore. Especially when a surprise pregnancy enters the picture.
Adam is determined to marry Lily and raise their child as a family. But Lily refuses to settle for anything less than love.
As the two go on a journey of discovering, secrets are revealed, testing the strength of their connection.
Can they learn not to give the past the power to define their future?
Need You Now is book two of the Martha’s Way Series.

Book One in the Martha's Way Series
The Scale
 Available from: Amazon | Barnes & Noble
Twenty-seven year old, African-American, Minka Greene has to endure watching her twin sister marry the man she loves. Her weight is up, and her confidence is down. Not exactly the ideal time to meet the real man of her dreams. 
The Scale opens in Martha’s Vineyard with Minka attending Keely and Blake’s engagement party at Martha’s Way, the beautiful inn owned and operated by the tall, blond, tattooed man with the piercing blue eyes. It just so happens Jason Montgomery is also Blake’s childhood friend and the best man. Dealing with a whirl of emotions, Minka faints in Jason’s arms. 
When she wakes up naked in Jason’s bed after a night of passion, the Vineyard confirmed bachelor struggling with his own demons and the woman filled with self-doubt and pining for another man are joined in an experience that will change their lives.

  1. I not only like Realism in my romance, but I prefer it! I want to be able to relate, to get lost in the book that I am reading.. :)

  2. I want to believe anyone can find romance, so yes! I like the flaws, the little quirks, the struggles...

  3. That's great to hear everyone. Then you will love The Scale and Need You Now. Both books address some pretty interesting topics. I understand Romance is an escape and while I believe in the Happily Ever After, I do love addressing relatable issues and let the main characters grow through them.

  4. if it's a contemporary, sure, a bit of realism is ok. I don't want to be thrown out of the story, so it doesn't have to exact all the time. Thanks for sharing!

  5. I prefer realism in my romance. If I can't relate to it, then I can't read it. (signed up as Amber M)

  6. I'm all about realism in romance. There is nothing more perfect that real love, warts and all. The fluffy stuff dissipates with time, but real love lasts a lifetime (as Joni Mitchell would say.)

  7. Romance? I'll take it anyway I can get it.

  8. These sound like some very intriguing reads ;)


  10. Yes. I do like realism in my romance.

  11. I do like realism in my romance.
