Ronda and Richard: The Novel – A young woman’s pursuit of happiness

Ronda is a fascinating and lovely woman in her mid twenties, working as a diner waitress in the tiny town of Deer Creek in central Pennsylvania. She is swept off her feet by Richard, the tall, handsome, and wealthy Philadelphian. Their love has an immediacy rarely experienced, the bewitching emotion of love at first sight. You, the reader will be led on a fascinating trip into a world of love, sex and wealth. This entertaining historical romance is set in the 1970’s.

Richard was intoxicated by the strong scent of perfume, and the overall blondness of the lovely young woman. For a second they made eye contact, and she wondered if something magical was happening to her. A sense of warmth and comfort came over her, unlike anything she had ever experienced.


He wants to hold her close to him, to possess her. It isn’t all about sex. That is a part of it, but mostly it is just about having her near him. Somehow he senses that fate has brought them to each other. During their first dinner date, he professes his love for her.

“I have to see you next week,” Richard said.
“Let’s enjoy the evening. I remember my mother saying tomorrow will always take care of itself.”
“You don’t understand,” he said.
“Tell me.”
“You’re not like anyone I’ve ever met in my life.” He paused while searching for the next words, never taking his eyes off her. “I don’t just like you, I truly love you, Ronda. That’s what you must understand.”
For a seemingly long period of time, there was complete silence between them.
“How can you know? It’s been such a short time since you met me. You can’t be sure of something like that so soon.”
“I just know. I was taken by you within mnutes after I met you. I tossed and turned until four in the morning last night, thinking of you. You are always in my thoughts during my business meetings. Your precious face is always in front of me. I’ve never felt anything before like my feelings for you.”


Her best friend, Gail Perkins, wonders if Ronda isn’t rushing too quickly into this blazing, sudden romance. Within a few weeks, Ronda moves to Philadelphia into Richard’s magnificent penthouse condominium. Meanwhile, Richard is kept busy with the purchase of a company which will quadruple the size of Perillo Foods, his family food processing business.


Pamela Von Hildebrand, Richard’s one-time fiance, whom he left, is still trying to win him back. One morning she makes a surprise visit to his office:
Pamela kicked off both of her heels, revealing her bare feet. She wiggled her toes. She knew Richard had a liking for a woman’s bare feet. Hiking her skirt a good foot above her knees, she turned toward him and brazenly attempted to seduce him.


Readers of this new novel will find Ronda colorful, lovable and enchanting. As the novel progresses, she meets a beautiful older woman, Kay Turner, who will play an important role in her future. Will the lovely Ronda, from a small town in Pennsylvania, find lasting happiness with Richard, the dynamic and demanding young heir to a fast-growing business empire?

J.Z. Pinder has written a full length romance novel, featuring an interesting and memorable couple. The captivating love story of Ronda and Richard will keep you constantly in suspense wondering what will happen on the pages ahead.

by Rhea Harmsen

A strange menagerie in an unlikely setting. Jack Wolinski, a young white architect with a crazy scheme and some maxed-out credit cards. Fiona Reed, a young woman with the brass of a CEO and the innocence of a nun. Otis Reed, a Denzel-like construction foreman with a penchant for poetry. And Towana Jackson, a desperate single mother with too many pounds and too many kids.

Their lives intersect at the juncture of Drexel Boulevard and 47th Street. It’s a wild bid to turn a corner of the ghetto into paradise. Starting with boarded up, urine-smelling, condemned properties. Aiming for yuppie south side “revitalization,” and urban gardens. A mad venture that sucks them into a vortex of hard work, laughter, and near-bankruptcy. Hoping to find dignity, love and healing. But what the heart longs for and the eyes crave, you must not touch.

It’s the truth about race in America. Complicated and perilous. You can lose your heart, yeah, you can lose your soul, amen, you could even lose your life. It’s the most challenging issue sabotaging the American dream. It can only be conquered by “The Most Great Law.”


Fiona walked into the dark office and put her keys back in her purse. She was about to switch on the lights when a voice out of the darkness said, “Hello.”

She nearly jumped out of her skin. “Jesus!”

A lamp switched on and it illumined the figure of Jack reclining on the little black leather couch near the front window.

“Jack! You scared me to death!” she scolded, even as she took in the fact that he had on a suit and a loosened tie, a combination that made him long, lanky and devastating.

“I’m so sorry. I thought I’d warn you I was here.”

“What are you doing here in the dark?”

“Meditating,” he said. Then he recapitulated and told the truth. “No, I came in to work on the architectural designs and I never got started.” He smiled. “What are you doing here, isn’t it kind of late?” He looked at his watch.

She felt self-conscious. Sure, this was his office, and she was his office administrator, but the fact that it was eleven at night, and that they were alone in it somehow changed its flavor. “Thought I’d work a little. Couldn’t go to sleep yet.”

“Something on your mind?” he asked.

The same thing that was always on her mind, whether sleeping or waking, and that made it hard to sleep sometimes. She looked at his clothes. Where did he go off to every time he dressed like that? She felt tortured by a strange mixture of anger and anxiety. To be more accurate, of fury and despair.

“Where did you go? You’re all dressed up,” she asked.

“I went to feast.”

A feast sounded worse than a date. Why pour salt on the wound? “What is a feast?” she asked.

He sat up straight. “A feast is a community gathering, sort of a devotional meeting.”

She should have known it was something wholesome like that. Jack was a damn eunuch. Couldn’t see a woman if she were dangled in front of him. Exceptâ?¦maybe there was someone at these “devotional meetings.” Some skinny ass white girl with lanky blond hair and a valley girl voice. Again the fury mixed with despair, like ink coloring water. She was going crazy.

“Do youâ?¦do you have a girlfriend there?” Now she had done it. Now she couldn’t retreat anymore. She leaned her body up against the door jamb leading to Jack’s office. They had been talking like that, from a distance. Him in one corner of the room, her in another.

Jack got up from the couch now, and moved to where she was. He leaned on the other doorjamb and said, “No.”

That was all he said. But his eyes were trying to say something more. Or maybe it was that she wanted them to. She wouldn’t look away, she could only wait. Not breathe and wait.

Despite his outward calm, a million thoughts whizzed through Jack’s mind. Inside him there was a war, between his ethics and his desires, his upright character and his obsession. He was aching to taste those carmine lips so close to his; kiss those eyes, luminous and misty, that bore into him w
