I Remember Me, by popular author Leila Lacey, is a standalone novel. This is classic mystery romance at its finest. Suspenseful and racy, it focuses on a woman who must recover all she has lost if she wants to live happily ever after.
Najee clawed her way through the darkness of her coma.
Then she heard a voice saying, “You’re going to die bitch, now or later. It doesn’t matter when, but you’re going to die.”
The voice was so terrifying it propelled her forward closer into consciousness.
She was enveloped in pain, sinking in and out of an oblivion, which pushed her into an awareness that was accompanied by pain that was the most intense, all-encompassing misery she couldn’t localize. Just when she wanted to scream at the top of her lungs in agonizing pain, a warm feeling of relief would wash over her and she would again slip into blissful unconsciousness.
Slowly as the days went, by Najee was conscious more and more. If she focused really hard, she could hear voices, the incessant beep of electronic monitors, and what sounded like voices far in the distance.
“Moved just in time…most would have died from this injury…”
“…How long before we know if there is any brain damage?”
“When will you be able to remove the bullet?”
Bullet? Who had a bullet? Where? Wait—are they talking about me? She thought.
Bow down to the curves. That’s the philosophy that’s motivated romantic fiction author Leila Lacey as she’s wrote over a dozen popular books taking a hot and exciting look at love and adventure from a strong, curvy woman’s viewpoint. The books have been received with enthusiasm, and it’s clear the best is yet to come for these BBW romances (Big Beautiful Woman).
“I think it’s important to present strong, beautiful, curvy women that have amazing female to female relationships,” commented Lacey, on what motivates her. “If we don’t provide alternative role models for people, they could fall into the trap of not loving who is looking them back in the mirror. Romantic fiction should entertain, but it should also help build confidence and a great self-image. I’m trying to cover all these things and more in my books.”
According to the author, Lacey had a quite unexpected entry into writing. Although always interested in being a writer she never explored her skills fully until being convinced to join a writing contest. Within 30 days she had finished her first novel, won the contest, and never looked back. An example of a woman with confidence proving to herself, and the world, what can be accomplished when dreams are pursued actively.
Some of her most popular books in the plus size women genre include: Phoenix Rising; A Very Curvy Christmas; Dr. Black’s Patient; Love’s Legacy; Shelby’s Awakening; and many, many more.
