july Loves Dance cover flat

Love’s Dance by Loni London

When Journey Mills returns to her hometown of Miami to help out an old friend and start a new job, she doesn’t expect to run into her high school crush, Reid St. Cloud. They never ran in the same circles back in the day, and she figured her schoolgirl crush was just that — a crush that would never amount to anything more.

Now, more than ten years later, she’s surprised to run into him back home. After all, with his track star reputation and movie star good looks, Journey expected Reid to be somewhere else, living a glamorous life and doing amazing things.

She’s also surprised to see her old feelings for him resurface. Instead of the self-assured dance school instructor she’s become, she feels like the old, shy Journey she always was around him.

When Reid sees Journey again after a decade, he’s shocked by the depth of his attraction for her. No longer the wallflower he remembered from ten years ago, Journey is now a confident, sexy woman who draws him in from the start. Although his Olympic dreams never materialized, he’s made a comfortable living for himself in his hometown and made peace with those old ambitions.

Despite their attraction to each other, however, and before Journey and Reid can forge a lasting connection, someone from his past comes onto the scene. Reid’s ex-flame has her eyes on him and she’ll stop at nothing to sink her claws into the man she wants.

Who will Reid choose? The comfort of the familiar or the woman who makes his heart dance every time she smiles?

Pause, take a breath, and glisten…

That’s the better way to phrase Yasmine Brown sweating to death on her first hike, which is, obviously her punishment for being too cheap or too stubborn to buy the outdoor-loving woman she calls her best friend a stupid gift.

Most people are willing to accept her famous baked desserts as the perfect present. After all, she is an internationally renowned pastry chef.

Unfortunately, that trick doesn’t work when your best friend is also your employee.

One little trek to make the birthday brat happy won’t kill her, right?


Halt, take a sip, oh no, she’s slippin’…

One minute Sutton Thisleton is having a drink, and the next he’s helping the most gorgeous woman he’s ever crossed paths with out of the small hole she fell into.

Most people wouldn’t see this as the right opportunity to grab a date. They also wouldn’t wander from city to city because the wind seemed to shift them another direction one random afternoon.

Good thing he’s never been most people.

One assisted hop back to the vixen’s vehicle won’t completely change his life, right?

What will happen when these two opposite worlds continuously collide?

Will they find a way to create a sweet, long lasting treat together, or will it end with one of them being told to take a permanent hike?
