From New York Times bestselling author, Penelope Ward, comes a new novelette. The first time I met Jade Jameson, I lost my words and accidentally dropped a beer bottle, smashing it to the ground. The Broadway star sister of my brother’s wife had paid us a surprise visit on Christmas. Quite simply, she was the most beautiful woman I’d ever seen; I was mesmerized. I’d made a fool of myself, though, and to make matters worse, my girlfriend was standing right there when it all happened. Jade went back to New York, and we didn’t cross paths again for a year—until one night when a Facebook notification lit up my screen, setting off a chain of events that would change my life forever. Jaded and Tyed is a 16,000 word novelette. (The length is shorter than a novella.) It is not available in e-book format.
