Bella Fortuna
By Rosanna Chiofalo

Set in New York and Venice, Bella Fortuna explores the dynamics of first love, friendship, betrayal, loss, forgiveness, and just how much control we really have over our own destiny.

Thirty-year-old Valentina DeLuca always thought she was cursed when it came to love. To add insult to injury, Valentina designs and sews knockoff designer gowns in the bridal boutique she owns with her mother and two sisters. After making countless Bridezillas’ dreams come true, this year is Valentina’s year to finally tie the knot. Engaged to Michael Carello, Valentina has had a secret crush on Michael since she was a little girl. She can’t believe she’s really marrying Michael and in her favorite city in the world—Venice! But as Valentina is about to discover, the road to blissful matrimony will be paved with many bumps and having the perfect wedding is much harder than she ever dreamed.

Such is Life
By Angel A. Walker

Melissa Jones has never had a problem with being single. That is until she receives an invite to her ten-year high school reunion, and then her ex’s wedding, both events falling on the same weekend. As Melissa debates whether to cancel or suck it up, her assistant, Brett Thomas, decides to step in to “assist” her. Melissa figures once her date problem is solved the weekend will run smoothly. Not exactly. Her family will stop at nothing to embarrass her, her exes will stop at nothing to try and win her back, and using Brett as her arm candy gets a little sticky when buried feelings are brought to the surface. By the end of the weekend Melissa will have to make decisions she always read about, but never experienced. She’ll dream of the day when being single was her only problem.

"Such is Life" is $2.99 for Kindle.
