Slow to Love

Curvy Woman Short & Steamy Small Town Virgin Instalove Romance

He’s cynical when it comes to love. She refuses to love for fear of losing it. Can her fear and his jaded heart find middle ground so they can both find the happiness they desperately need?


I’ve spent my life avoiding risk and the pitfalls of falling in love by keeping to myself.

And I’m satisfied with my life running the café and keeping people at arm’s length.

When my future sister-in-law brings Derek into the café, the wall around my heart begins to crumble.

Derek is kindhearted and patient with boyish charm and I want him for more than just dessert.

But can I risk opening my heart to a man who might not be here tomorrow?


Call me jaded, but my sister’s year-long wedding planning has my head spinning. Isn’t there more to love than a big show?

I’m willing to wait for my dream girl. The one who’s looking for love, life and happily ever after without making a show of it.

When I walk into her café to sample desserts with my sister, all I want is a taste of Raven’s goodies.

Raven is reserved, dark and mysterious and steals my heart without saying a word.

Can I convince her that life without happiness isn’t really living at all?
