My review today is on the three short stories in the novella, Inspiring Love. I haven't read any of Nadine's work before but it is well written and different than most romance stories I have read. I enjoyed this book and I'm sure you will too.

She refuses a drink, she doesn't drink; she refuses to dance, she doesn't dance; what is she doing in a bar?

Ikenna was a powerful man but is a widower and seemed to have lost his will to live. Ahanna can see the despair in the man's eyes. His dreams are filled with terror but when he is awake he just lies there and refuses to respond. Ahanna chatters to him and even sings to him. One night she bathes his face and then kneels by him and falls asleep. He takes her bare foot in his hand then drifts off into peaceful sleep.
