Publication Date: March 2

Genre: Romance, Contemporary, Novella


Her heart is empty in the new life she’s living.
Charlotte Taylor knows she’s gorgeous. She’s been told that all her life. Since she was a child, her mom, a former model and Miss Georgia, has been grooming her for a professional modeling career and tomorrow, she’ll sign with the top agency in New York City. It should be a dream come true.

Alone, and unhappy, she doesn’t know where to turn.
Hale Scott works long hours as a chef at the hottest restaurant in Manhattan. It should be his dream job, serving hip food to the coolest crowd in the city. The only problem is his boss. The highlight of his evening is the gorgeous woman he keeps making eye contact with, sitting at the table closest to the kitchen. She looks sad and lonely and he hopes she’s still there when the dinner rush subsides.

Charlotte and Hale find an instant connection but a relationship is the last thing Charlotte needs and the only thing Hale wants. Can they find a way to stay together in the overwhelming city, or can they find their own city of love?

Cameo by: Siena Remington from Melissa Foster’s Flames of Love 

**Remington Kindle World Novella based off of Melissa Foster's Remington Series** 

Don't miss Spotlight on Love, Kaira Rouda'a 1st Kindle World Spin-off.

If you're in the mood for an insta-love or love at first sight or HEA kind of romance...
City of Love by Kaira Rounda is perfect for you. 

So what happens when you're stuck in a position you don't want to be in? A place where you are not truly happy. Charlotte Taylor, a model from Atlanta, flies to NYC for a chance to sign with one of the top modeling agencies in the country. Only's not her dream, but her mother's. Hale Scott, the head chef of NYC's trendiest restaurant PRIME, cooking for the rich and famous. Only problem...he hates the person he works for. But when they set eyes on each other for one's the night that will change their lives. 


PLOT LINE - This probably sounds cliche but the novella is short, sweet, and to the point! The story revolves around one night. A night filled with adventure, steamy glances, sexy moves, and taking leaps. A lot can happen in one night...can you fall in love along the way? Of course. If it's meant to's meant to be. The story does flow pretty well and at a quick pace. If I was given a full book of their story, I will probably love it more. But when I'm in the mood for a quick romance, this fits the bill. With the dual POV, you'll get to see both sides of the story! Then you can tell when one person is invested in the relationship more than the other. I just love it when they wait for the other to catch up in that department. I think this story does a great job with it. Can you guess who might fall in love first? ;) 

CHEMISTRY - From the moment they met, Hale Scott has a way with words. With the initial meeting, I love how Charlotte finds a way to get him to talk to her. It's actually pretty sweet and once he came will prob die from his hotness. Just everything that comes out of his mouth will leave you breathless. Damn, all those light touches will leaving you swooning as well. Hale Scott is one swoon-worthy guy. When they finally get a break from what's holding them back, things get more interesting. Those sexy times are just as hot as the initial interactions. 

I just love how everything is just perfect in the end...because everyone deserves a happy ending.
