Xanadu XOXO

With a building to fight over, a goal she won’t budge on, and a need he can’t deny, it will take more than a little True Springs magic…

Kalpani has one goal: own the most popular salon in Pittsburgh. She has no room in the workplace for a tenant, let alone a life partner, no matter how attractive and wonderful Jonah seems now. She’s seen the disastrous effects of marriage on too many women of her culture—and that’s a hard no. It’s just bad luck that the tenant she has to kick out of her new building is none other than floundering artist (and ex-flame) Jonah Walker. She can’t allow guilt—or desire—to derail her plans. But Jonah is far more than the laid-back creative type he seems. Even as he fights for his livelihood, he’s determined to prove to Kalpani that he’s worthy of her love and key to her dreams.

. . . . . .

With a family-oriented, small-town feel, Xanadu XOXO is a multi-cultural opposites-attract stand-alone love story where new beginnings make second chances and forgiveness a necessity.
