Summary

“Like many of the best story tellers, Cornelia Fick is funny.” J. Bekker-Thesen 
“What was most fascinating for me was the beautiful and elegant writing. It is clean and polished, laden with vivid and beautiful descriptions (this) is a gorgeous treat for fans of flash fiction and the short story.” Five star review from Reader’s Favorite 
For lovers of literary and experimental fiction, Cornelia Fick's debut collection is written with a compassionate eye for the fragile positions of women, the dispossessed and the poor. While experimenting with different styles and forms of storytelling, Fick displays an acute insight into the mysteries of human nature.  
Get a slice of life in a small South Africa town in 'Belinda'; take a cheeky look at love in 'Love At First Bite'; and delve into an abusive relationship in 'To Die For'. 
This is an accomplished and thought-provoking collection, infused with wit, insight and humor, all the while examining the decay and unseen emotional damage caused by inequality.  These short stories are essential for fans of the medium, and will intrigue any reader.  
 “A truly beautiful collection that deserves its place on any literary-lover's bookshelf.” T. Williams

    Have you ever sat and talked with God and asked him what have you done to be treated so badly?  Nicole Evans has spent the last year and a half of her life having this same conversation with God.

Quite honestly, Nicole has been talking so loudly in fact she isn't hearing God whisper back to her " Just wait, I have a love planned for you that will surpass everything you thought you wanted." 
    After the demise of her relationship with long-time boyfriend DonTravious ,Nicole thought God had truly blessed her the day Kendrick Taylor walked into her life, her prayers for a lasting love had been answered. Life with him was bliss until he walked out of her life without a second thought leaving her more broken and alone than she'd ever felt. Nicole resigned herself to the fact she was going to be alone. She was tired of looking for love and only being left out in the cold. She was content to mourn the love she'd lost…or rather never had with a now happily married Kendrick. 
    Jeremiah gave his all to the woman he loved rising R&B star Mia King. He took her out of a negative living environment taking on the responsibilities of a man when he was barely into adulthood.

Jeremiah was ready to conquer the world. In fact he felt he was almost at the top of the mountain when his world came crumbling down. With one fateful trip to Texas, Jeremiah soon found out that everything he thought he knew about Mia was a lie. A year and a half later, Jeremiah is richer than ever but his heart is cold. Straight savage when it came to any thoughts of love. The only purpose women served for him were to meet his physical needs. 
    That is until one night of conducting business leads him straight into the arms of a woman he thinks is certifiably crazy. Though in the game of love a little bit of crazy may be just what you need to make your world feel sane.

    The nightshades cover the land. Demons of smoke and shadow, they fear no sword or arrow. They suck the souls from all who live, like a glutton sucking marrow from bones. The world falls under their darkness. 
    But the nightshades crave more than random ruin. The souls of mere humans will not sate them. They seek dragons. 
    Requiem's last dragons, a mere scattering of survivors, have fought off men and griffins. But how can they fight the nightshades, creatures they cannot cut or burn?

    Not all men are bad…
    
     
    
    
     
    Strong, independent, and happy on her own, Hillary has grown from the naïve person she was four years ago after a brutal rape turned her into a werewolf. The normal life she’s made for herself is only upset once a month when the moon calls to her and she has an uncontrollable urge to turn furry and chase small creatures. And she doesn’t need a man for that. Until she finally meets another werewolf, this one a gorgeous, sexy guy who is determined to change her mind about one furry man in particular–him.

    The minute Zach scents Hillary he knows she’s the mate he’s been searching for. Though both the wolf and the man are itching to claim her, first he has to convince her that he’s one of the good guys, and that there are certain benefits to being an alpha werewolf. And there’s no better way of making Hillary see that, than giving her himself—body, mind, and soul.
