Love, Only Better
To have your story featured on the podcast, visit www.shanahannibal.com and click the services tab. Love, Only Better is an empowering women's fiction read and bedroom rallying cry for women everywhere. Daringly honest and tenderly relatable, Love, Only Better boldly explores of a topic too long kept in the shadows: women’s pleasure. From the pain of stigma to the heights of personal empowerment, Paulette Stout renders a startling story of revelation and fulfillment… with a juicy touch of romance.  Blurb: Meet Rebecca, an adorable gal with an intimate secret…  For Rebecca, sex is a joke missing a punchline. No crashing waves. Only pangs of inadequacy. At twenty-eight, shouldn’t she have had one by now? Her snickering ex thought so. His taunts echo in her ears as he rolls out of her bed. Then out of her life.  After enrolling in an unconventional study for women, Rebecca is stunned by the power she holds inside. But her promise to avoid intimacy hits a snag when a handsome neighbor moves in. Their chemistry is electric, but the timing couldn’t be worse!  If he learns her secret, she’ll lose her best chance at love. But if her lessons fail, she’ll be left eternally broken. Unlovable.  Can Rebecca find the answers she needs to love someone new—and finally love herself?

Cecilia: The Order of Terefellian (The Cecilia Series Book 2)
From award-winning author Sandra L Rostirolla comes the second installment of The Cecilia Series. In the wake of her victory over the Dark Goddess and the vicious Senators of Vitus, Cecilia is ready to focus on rebuilding and nurturing her newly formed family. But where there should have been peace and light, she finds uncertainty and a looming darkness. The Prophecy is incomplete. Amalardh is haunted by internal doubt. And something terrible and immense is growing in the south. The life Cecilia fought for—the city, the freedom, the family—is slipping away as an old threat returns with a full force. Cecilia and Amalardh are forced onto separate journeys. Cecilia must discern who to trust and how to keep the world safe from a threat far beyond anything she has faced before. Amalardh travels to faraway lands in search of answers to the Prophecy. One wrong move could mean the end for them and everything they fought for. The Cecilia Series is an epic love story between a headstrong young woman who refuses to accept the status quo of her fractured world and an emotionally bankrupt assassin struggling to find his humanity.

Making sure everyone is happy is all she cares about, so much so that she doesn’t see things for what they really are the way Jackie does. With Jackie at risk of going to prison and Titan’s actions crumbling what was once Sasha’s world, will she come out standing or lose herself in the chaos?   Jackie is strong and independent. She loves hard and will do whatever it takes to protect her family. This includes executing her own brand of justice on those who do her loved ones wrong.

Live Love Learn: With an Open Heart by Teriece Cherell
Nothing and no one can exist alone in the world. Relationships are the greatest lessons and blessings in our lives, whether good or bad. Teriece Cherell teaches us that relationships are critical and necessary to our existence and development as successful, loving, and happy human beings.  In this self-help, inspirational book, the author addresses several of the most common elements for fostering healthy, successful relationships and how it contributes to our overall success and growth as individuals. She uses touching personal stories that create laughter, tears and even self-evaluation and reflection. She teaches readers that relationships take on many forms: familial, romantic, casual, platonic or professional. Whatever the form, relationships should be healthy, loving, and mutually beneficial to all parties involved. While all relationships are not created equally, each one has the power to teach us about ourselves, life, and how to deal with others.

Yet when a heroic, breathtaking stranger by the name of Kody Benton rescues her from an attack on her life, their shared attraction is evident, and Winter can’t help but be drawn to him. This man is everything and more. Strong, charismatic, and so sexy, he sends her mind to wicked places. Which means Winter should stay away. The trouble is, fate isn’t playing fair. Denying herself the temptation proves to be troublesome when Winter’s forced to be around a man that wants her just as bad as she wants him. However, faced with the possibility of losing him before truly knowing him, will Winter finally get her happy ending? Or does meeting under horrible circumstances foreshadow a relationship to end in the same?
