ONCE FRIENDS, A Hollywood Love Story
LOVE in the USA,  (Sonja & Jay) Book 1


LOVE in the USA is back! Meet the Hester women—sisters Sonja and Elaine and their cousins, sisters Robin and Theresa. Is the fact they’ve been cursed by their grandmother’s evil nemesis the reason why they’ve all been so unlucky at love, or is it because their time for love hadn’t come until now?

Sonja and Jay were once best friends, and then he broke her heart and they became strangers. Fifteen years later an act of fate brings them together. But will she be able to overcome the resentment she feels toward him and give him a second chance to win her heart?

    I had the same problem through Google Play. I went to my account through Google Play and noticed that the preorder had never been delivered. I cancelled the order and then was able to purchase the book. Hope this helps.

    H Francis! I once contacted Google Play because another reader had this same issue. They said that you should try “refreshing the browser” and if your problems persist, you should contact them at

    I hope this helps!

    Thank you so much for your reply. I do not blame you at all for doing less computer time as it can be brutal on the eyes. I also wanted to thank you for trying to make preorders available on Amazon. Have a great day!

  4. Cheryl says:

    I was wondering if you could tell me if Amazon will be offering your future books for pre order? I find preordering them so much easier. Thank you.

      Hi Cheryl, I apologize for the late response. I’m limiting the hours I spend looking at a computer screen. My eyes are starting to suffer. Anyway, getting to your question… Amazon can be a beast to deal with sometimes. They do not make pre-orders as easy as iBooks and Google Play do. However, the last pre-order I set up on Amazon worked out just fine. I’ll look into getting the pre-orders set up for my next three releases and post here on my blog when they’re available. It may take a month but I’ll see… Thanks for your inquiry! All best, Z

        • zuleikaarkadie says:

          You’re welcome 🙂 Although the Parched series is paranormal romance it’s very much written in the same tone as LOVE in the USA. You should give it a try. Book 1 and 2 are free! Thanks for asking! 🙂 All best! Z
