Love and Devotion
KC Hall loves her family, her small East Texas town, and her best friend, Emma Reynolds. All of that takes a backseat when her lover beckons. Lonnie is blond, beautiful, and willing. She's also married and a lifelong friend of KC's mama. KC knows the affair is a bad idea, but she just can't help herself. When presented with the lush landscape of Lonnie's body, KC subscribes to the philosophy of "orgasm first, think later." Unfortunately, a secret that big is impossible to keep in a close-knit community where everybody knows everybody else's business. The scandal would hurt her entire family. Emma is KC's exception, the one woman she loves enough to not have sex with. When Emma confesses that she's loved KC since high school, KC is terrified. One wrong move and she could lose Emma completely. Is she willing to let her family pay the price for her good time? Or will she turn to Emma to discover the true meaning of love and devotion?
Jove Belle was born and raised against a backdrop of orchards and potato fields. The youngest of four children, she was raised in a conservative, Christian home and began asking why at a very young age, much to the consternation of her mother and grandmother. At the customary age of eighteen, she fled southern Idaho in pursuit of broader minds and fewer traffic jams involving the local livestock. The road didn't end in Portland, Oregon, but there were many confusing freeway interchanges that a girl from the sticks was ill prepared to deal with. As a result, she has lived in the Portland metro area for over fifteen years and still can't figure out how she manages to spend so much time in traffic when there's not a stray sheep or cow in sight. She lives with her partner of thirteen years. Between them, they share three children, two dogs, two cats, two mortgage payments, one sedan, and one requisite dyke pickup truck. One day she hopes to live in a house that doesn't generate a never-ending honey-do list.
