Alyssa Cole returns with a fun, sexy romance novella in the Reluctant Royals series!
While her boss the prince was busy wooing his betrothed, Likotsi had her own love affair after swiping right on a dating app. But her romance had ended in heartbreak, and now, back in NYC again, sheâ€™s determined to rediscover her joyâ€”so of course she runs into the woman who broke her heart.
When Likotsi and Fabiola meet again on a stalled subway train months later, Fab asks for just one cup of tea. Likotsi, hoping to know why she was unceremoniously dumped, agrees. Tea and food soon leads to them exploring the city together, and their past, with Fab slowly revealing why she let Likotsi go, and both of them wondering if they can turn this second chance into a happily ever after.
Praise for Once Ghosted, Twice Shy
â€śCole has crafted yet another love story you canâ€™t wait to dive into headfirst. She hits on contemporary issues ranging from the heartbreak of being ghosted to far more serious questions of immigration law, tackling all of it with the empathy and pragmatism that has become a hallmark of her work. Simply by telling inclusive stories that matter to her, Cole is breaking down barriers in mainstream romance publishing… a story that could have filled a whole novel in its heft and emotional depth.â€ť
