"It was their first encounter that landed them in newfound territory.

Up and coming wedding planner Bri St. James is in the height of her career. As the CEO of Building Bridges LLC, Bri is driven by determination for success, and each day makes for new opportunities abound. However, while planning the wedding of one of Chicago’s hottest couples, Bri’s focus is shifted when the strum of a nocturnal voice captures her attention. Being an empath has empowered her sense of compassion for others, so she’s not only drawn to him because of his broken heart but also from a fierce attraction that sparks her interest and tap dances on a groove on her heart. Getting involved with someone who’s not open to love may prove to be the most difficult road Bri has ever journeyed, but she’s unable to stop herself from falling into an irresistible tango of love.

The Men of Haven: fierce passion, unyielding loyalty.

Especially when it comes to their women.

A powerful man

"Sanaa Chase, high-powered stock trader, had never been one to settle down, preferring to live life on the edge, committing only to making herself happy. The last few failed relationships scarred Sanaa in such a way that she didn’t even share the depth of her pain with her best friend, although she trusted their friendship implicitly. 
Kingston Wells, timber magnate, and philanthropist was an astute businessman with a generous heart. A chance encounter with Sanaa Chase did more than pique Kingston’s curiosity. He was traditional. Kingston desired to pursue her, to get to know Sanaa, and woo her.
She was resistant. He was convincing. Could Sanaa be swayed?"

My Rationalization

I found 'Chosen' a very hard read in how Tahini was treated by her mother and cousin. However, Tahini finally had someone and it wasn't just her brother Juston but a Darold. Who was this Darold that took to Tahini after first meeting her and her son? My main thoughts as I read through this story was why in the world was Tahini's mother and cousin be so mean to her? What will happen as Tahini becomes a stronger person and the answer to many of her questions come out? Well, to find out all of these questions and so much more you will have to pick up this novella to see how this author brings out this story of finally giving Tahini the love she so well deserved.
