tlsmallTrue Love? (#3)

by Emmy Z. Madrigal

PRINT
Kindle Version – Coming soon!

True Love? at iTunes or you can listen to chapters below.

Victoria has an awesome boyfriend, great friends and her singing career on its way. Are the nightmares she’s been having a warning, or are they just a symptom of her subconscious second-guessing the happiness she is feeling for the first time in her life? Rob gives her even more good news as he whisks her off on a weekend trip planned completely in her honor. Unbeknownst to him, someone from her past has another agenda designed to ruin her for good. Will Rob be able to save her from the devious plans of a horrific mastermind?

Boy band star Derek Montgomery is falling for Cynthia Porter in a big way, but she’s not sure she wants anything to do with him. Competing with the memories of Derek’s ex and tabloid rumors, Cynthia would rather let go of him than deal with all the drama. Can Derek prove to her that he’s serious and that she’s not just the rebound girl?  Find out in True Love.

Abby Tanaka is the creator of the fastest selling manga series on the market, Shuttle 5. One day she’s an out of work art college graduate, scribbling like mad in her sketchbook, and the next, she has five mangas on the shelves. She always heard things happened overnight, but didn’t believe it, until it happened to her. The problem? She needs help! Her colorist just quit, deadlines are stacking up, and her convention schedule barely leaves time to sleep.

Chase Everett, a talent manager with Malloy Inc., promises to take away Abby’s stress. “Don’t worry. We’ll take care of you,” never sounded sweeter. Chase is just a voice over the phone, but Abby starts to have feelings for him. Only thing is, she has no idea what he looks like or if he’s interested in her. Abby’s talent is to create true love out of pen and ink, but can she do the same in her own life?

Three days is not very long, but to Victoria, who’s been away from her new love Rob Malloy, it seems like forever. Returning from Colorado, Victoria reconnects with her friends, finding one particular friend isn’t too happy about her having a high society boyfriend.

Imagine waking from a nap to find your favorite boy band star sitting in the chair across from you. That’s what happens to Cynthia Porter. She can hardly believe she isn’t dreaming when Derek Montgomery shows up at Rob’s apartment.

The initial shock gives way to real mutual admiration as they spend time together. Unfortunately, it seems Derek’s old girlfriend haunts him too much to let go. Will Cynthia ever find a guy who is completely into her? Or will she constantly be the friend and counselor to these screwed up males?
