Hi Kala! I just saw this, so sorry to answer late! Thank you for reading the series!

That is an excellent question.

I will be writing Colin's story at some point in the coming months. I haven't decided if he will get a novella-length story, a series like Emma and Caleb or a full-length book. I do know that he will meet a wealthy and captivating woman named Samantha, however.

I'm currently working on a book called Constant Craving, which will be released in the fall. Here's the synopsis:

Justine Lavoie will do anything to keep her family’s award-winning newspaper in a small Florida town from closing. Her last chance of getting investment money turns up with her ex-lover, Rafael Menedez de Aviles, who now owns half of Miami and beyond. Memories of their love, their sexual connection and their heartache built walls she’s never been able to break through.

Rafael came from Cuba as a boy with nothing but the clothes on his back. He’s fought his way to the top, but he’s not satisfied with the glitz and glamour of Miami. He never dreamed he would see Justine again, until her desperation makes their worlds collide. Rafael, recalling their sexual games when they were younger, makes a proposition. Spend the next month together, allowing him to do anything he desires with her, and the newspaper gets everything it needs.

Justine, wanting him and needing to save her business, says yes.

It seems a simple enough affair, to burn off the heat between them and walk away for good, but opening their hearts and giving their bodies to each other a second time may destroy them forever.(less)

“Have you thought about what will happen when you start living the life that's right for you, instead of the one you promised to live for someone else?”
Tamara Lush

“Everything about [chance] scares the bejesus out of so many people; it's the this thing they try to avoid at all costs. Don't travel to the Middle East these days - there's a chance something could happen. Don't get involved with that new fellow on Creamery Street - I hear a lot of mud was scraped off his floor after the divorce. Don't have your baby at home - there's a a chance something could go wrong. Don't don't don't... Well, you can't live your life like that! You can't spend your entire life avoiding chance. It's out there, it's inescapable, it's a part of the soul of the world. There are no sure things in this universe, and it's absolutely ridiculous to try and live like there are!”
Chris Bohjalian, Midwives

“I don’t believe in guilty pleasures. If you fucking like something, like it. That’s what’s wrong with our generation: that residual punk rock guilt, like, “You’re not supposed to like that. That’s not fucking cool.” Don’t fucking think it’s not cool to like Britney Spears’ “Toxic.” It is cool to like Britney Spears’ “Toxic”! Why the fuck not? Fuck you! That’s who I am, goddamn it! That whole guilty pleasure thing is full of fucking shit.”
Dave Grohl

“Fiction is the truth inside the lie.”
Stephen King
