It is a follow up to my first published work. When I first wrote Destinee Romance Novella some 15 years ago, that was going to be it, but when readers read it, they wanted more. One of my coworkers who was the first to buy my ebook, suggested I do a sequel and I have gotten requests time and again for an update, so that is what I am doing.
