Once again, Carl Weber brings together two literary divas to give readers what they’ve been asking for: empowering stories about big, beautiful women.
"Birthday Girl" by Skyy: Coral has spent her life working toward her professional goals. Not wanting to follow in the footsteps of church friends who had children before they made it to college, Coral has decided to forgo relationships until her dreams come true.

When she meets a mysterious drummer who leaves her floating on cloud nine, will he be the one to take her ultimate birthday gift? Or will it be the sweet church friend who doesn't excite her like the musician, but wants to give her more than just a memorable birthday?

Longing for love, intimacy, and affection, Lynn finally throws in the towel. Forty-one and childless, she wants a man who is willing and ready to love her the way she deserves. General Contractor William Daniels appears to be the perfect man for the job. Lynn’s bakery, Fire & Icing, needs some repairs, so she hires him.
