Novella / Short Story | Multicultural | Romance LGBTQ

Likotsi's been miserable these past seven months, ever since Fabiola ghosted her without any explanation. Now she's back in New York and everything reminds her of their time together. She's decided that enough is enough. With her first day off in months, Likotsi's going to spend the time saying goodbye - visiting all the places they've been together and the places they talked about going in the future. After that, she's moving on. She never expected to fall in love in such a short time.

Fab's stunned to see Likotsi on the same train. She too has been miserable these past seven months. She's not proud of the way she ended things, but in the grand scheme of things, there was nothing she could have done. Likotsi was leaving and her life just became complicated. Still, she's not about to let this second chance go. Fab invites her old girlfriend to spend the day with her.

At first Likotsi's angry, but she follows Fab because she wants answers. She wants to know what happened seven months ago. When she finally hears, the answer shocks her and she softens just a little bit.

ONCE GHOSTED, TWICE SHY takes place in the past and the present. The winter timeline's from Likotsi's point of view and Fab's point of view chronicles how they met and why they broke up in the Spring. There are no extra words in this novella, every word packs an emotional punch. Their banter adds lightness to the story while the chemistry jumps off the page. Another wonderful addition to the Reluctant Royals series.

While her boss the prince was busy wooing his betrothed, Likotsi had her own love affair after swiping right on a dating app. But her romance had ended in heartbreak, and now, back in NYC again, she’s determined to rediscover her joy—so of course she runs into the woman who broke her heart.

When Likotsi and Fabiola meet again on a stalled subway train months later, Fab asks for just one cup of tea. Likotsi, hoping to know why she was unceremoniously dumped, agrees. Tea and food soon leads to them exploring the city together, and their past, with Fab slowly revealing why she let Likotsi go, and both of them wondering if they can turn this second chance into a happily ever after.
