By Ronica Black

Actors/Artists

Crowded girl bars, shady chat rooms, lesbian parties, women's soccer. You name it and Adrian Edwards is there, prowling like the fiercest of hunters, focused on a perpetual search for that ever elusive four letter word called 'love.' From woman to woman she goes, relentless in her pursuit. Tamara, her best friend since high school, is always there to lend an ear or to roll her eyes as Adrian once again casts aside another woman, ticking off all the things that were 'wrong' about her. So used to the game, Tamara gives her gifts for the 'hunt' like safari hats, compasses and old fashioned looking glasses. Only problem is, they don't seem to help.

Searching as if truly blindfolded, Adrian continues on her quest, going from a young, troubled go-go dancer, to an obsessive mail carrier, to a tweaked out tomboy, to a lusciously aggressive accountant with way more than numbers on her mind.

Until one day Adrian realizes she has to learn to be with the person she's been resisting all along. Herself. It is while on this inner journey that a special someone truly steps into view and shakes up her world for good, proving once and for all that love is never elusive... as long as you love yourself.

Chasing Love is a heartfelt journey, one full of humor, sex, startling frankness, gripping reality and hard learned life lessons.

Indelible

By Jove Belle

Angie Dressen's goal in life is simple. She wants her son, Oliver, to have the childhood she never had. She remembers coming in second to the never-ending stream of girlfriends her father brought home, and she wants Oliver to know he comes first.

Luna Rinaldi is the wild-haired, leather-wearing embodiment of all Angie's relationship fears. She's a well-respected tattoo artist with a long list of past lovers and a reputation for leaving in the middle of the night. She's also kind, thoughtful, and adventurous, with a serious soft spot for Angie and Oliver.

The two enter into a tenuous relationship, one that leaves Luna wanting more and Angie resisting the promise in Luna's eyes. When they are together, though, Angie wants to believe in love, trust, and the possibility of forever.
