June 1st 2014 by MIRA

This is a story for every woman who has a best friend...

Bailey Watters and Koralynn Mitchell consider themselves "sisters of the soul." Their circumstances growing up couldn't have been more different; Kora came from a wealthy, privileged family, while Bailey's home life was hard. They'd do anything for each other. "I'd give you a kidney," they always say. There are no secrets between them--until there's one secret Bailey can't share.

This is a story for every woman who's been in love.

Danny Brown is the only man Kora's ever wanted, ever loved, and her marriage seems as flawless as everything else in her life. Bailey, however, doesn't want a husband. She does want a baby--but only by IVF. And the perfect donor, the perfect biological father, would be a man like...Danny.

What happens when love and friendship collide?

Kora might be willing to give Bailey a kidney. But what about a baby?

They're a team...not a couple!

Falling for Liam was unthinkable. He and Gabi had been best friends since college, nothing more. And crucially, now Liam was her client and needed her to be focused on his case. Gabi could never risk their friendship (or Liam's freedom) over these feelings. They could never be a couple, anyway. He was Liam Connelly, the handsome and privileged son of a billionaire. She was Gabrielle Miller, the girl who'd fought her way out of poverty and put herself through law school. They were unlikely friends to begin with. Anything more was impossible. Unless...he felt it, too.

Guest Post--Closest Friend
Friendship is a funny thing.  It happens, in its most perfect form, without us being aware.  And then,
suddenly, there it is, in our lives, blessing our lives, appearing out of nowhere to save us from…desolation.

Years ago I was in a position to serve an organization.  I gave my all to it.  Put in the many many hours of unpaid work.  I listened.  I stepped outside myself and made decisions based on the good of the many. 

It was a life changing experience for me in many ways.  It gave me insights into government and being responsible for the needs of diverse and vocal people.  It crucified me.

And it gave me my closest friend.  We argued when I first met her.  She had an opinion.  Delivered it
strongly.  She was almost twenty years my senior, a decorated journalist and a USA Today bestselling
author.  I was published.  Hadn’t hit USA Today yet.  Had written less than half the number of books she had.  And I told her she was wrong.  Because I’d seen a situation and I had to speak my truth.

I didn’t know it at the time, but she listened to what I said.  Thank God I was right.  But the most
important thing about the incident was that I spoke from the heart.  And she had the heart to hear my

Years passed.  Things happened.  And I was in an untenable position.  I felt completely and utterly alone. 

And suddenly, there was this…friend.  At a time when I thought myself physically alone, as well as cast adrift from all that mattered to me, at a time when I was being persecuted, there she was.  Finding me huddled in private, thinking myself alone with my grief.  She found me.  Held on to me. 

Because that’s what friendship does.  A lot is happening in my life this month.  My 70th book is released. 

I’m on the Publisher’s Weekly Bestseller list for the fourth week in a row.  Just hit the USA Today
bestseller list again.  I’m up for a coveted RITA award and have many galas and fancy parties to attend and have another two releases out.  And what I am looking forward to the most…I’m going to be spending a few days with my friend.  I cannot wait to see her.  To look into her eyes.  To walk beside. 

Hear her voice.  Because this is what life is about.  This is what matters most.

And this is the message I hope you get from The Friendship Pact and Once Upon A Friendship.  Cherish your friends.  Tend to them.  Let the little things go.  Work through the big ones.  Because they are the ones who will always be there to catch you when you fall.  To hold you up.  And help put you back together again.
