 ABOUT THE BOOK

I did not tell her the truth about what I really am…

The circumstances surrounding our introduction are unimportant. The only thing that matters is that Sasha Wilcox is my mate and she belongs to me. A night of unbridled passion sealed the deal, but before I could tell her the truth, she was gone. Days have turned into weeks and there is no way I can be without her. I must find her and bring her back to me. No one will stand in my way, especially not the one man who thinks he can steal her from me, Stefan Miller.

I want him so badly, and I have no idea why…

The last thing I should be doing is thinking about Remi Moretti: the green-eyed Italian man who kidnapped me and held me hostage for three days in Tuscany. I want to say that I feared for my life while under his guard, but that would be a lie. The truth is, in a moment of… weakness, I gave my body to him. He set it on fire, but I escaped, and now I need to move on with my life with Stefan, a great guy, who will make a great boyfriend. But why do I crave Remi’s touch? Why do I smell his intoxicating essence every time I breathe? And why do I sense his presence, even though he’s in Italy, and I’m in Miami?

The Opposite Of Hew

 

BLURB:

Kay McQueen is different from the women in her family. She lives her life for her, not for a man. Though she enjoys an occasional romp with a sexy man, she is not looking for Mr. Right. Her goals in life are to build her home health care business, and to travel the world. Well, at least she has her business life together. The travel thing, not so much. That is until her favorite aunt passes away, leaving a journal with her final wishes.

 

As far as Kay knows, Aunt Gigi is the ultimate single girl, the life of the party, even pushing eighty years old. What she finds in Gigi’s journal causes her to rethink her position on love and marriage. She embarks on a dual purpose journey; to scatter Gigi’s ashes and to discover love. Along the way, she encounters a man named Heath who is tall, sexy, and has magical hands. His kisses set her body on fire, but when she finds out his true identity, she wants to set him on fire, literally.

 

Find out how Kay handles the situation and see exactly who Heath is and what it means to Kay’s family. When these two worlds collide, the outcome is explosive. Heath’s lies and deception finally catch up with him, as Kay finds that what she was looking for, she already had. Discover why Happily Ever After isn’t always what it seems.

 

EXCERPT:

I allowed my alarm to blare into the room for three minutes before I begrudgingly unearthed myself from the mountain of covers on my California King. My bed is super comfy, but that’s not the reason I didn’t want to leave it. This was the most dreaded day of the year! This was the day when ALL of my family members got together, for the sole purpose of finding me a man. The McQueen family reunion!

You may think I was overreacting, but I swear, ever since I turned forty they have been coming out of the woodwork. Aunties, uncles, cousins, play cousins, brothers that I don’t have and sisters that I wish I didn’t all congregated under the guise of family, just to torture me. If I had to hear ‘Kay, when are you gonna find you a man and have some babies?’ one more time, I think I might join a convent. That would shut them up. On second thought, the nuns would probably be giving me the side eye too.

I finally made it onto my feet in a standing position and stumbled into the bathroom to take care of my business. Before the water could even heat in the shower my big sister, Tessa, was blowing up my phone. Mind you, I had a gas water heater, so the water was always hot. I should let her old melon head go to voicemail, but she will keep calling until I answer.

“Good morning Tess. What’s good?”

“What’s good? What young boy did you learn that from? You sound like your nephew when he’s talking to his friends.”

“Did you call to give me lessons on millennial phrases and culture, or was there a purpose to this call?”

I rolled my eyes and removed my toothbrush from its holder, spreading toothpaste on the bristles. I may as well brush while she ranted. There would be no way for me to get a word in edgewise. Putting the call on speaker, I placed my phone on the counter so I could groom properly without being rude.

“Eww, who pissed in your cornflakes this morning? Anywho, I just wanted to make sure you were up. You can’t be late for the festivities this year. Auntie Gigi has been asking for you since everyone arrived last night. You should have seen that woman trying to twerk. I swear, Kay, if you don’t get your act together, you will turn out just like her. Old, sad and alone, trying to shake your behind with the young folk.”

Tessa never did get along with Auntie Gigi, but she was my favorite aunt. Somehow, Tessa thought comparing me to her would be an insult, but I would love to live the kind of life Gigi had. Pushing eighty years old and could twerk? Are you kidding me? #lifegoals

My older sister made a habit of asking me when I was going to settle down and get married. That was her way of showing me that she cared, but her inquiries annoyed me. As a forty something strong African American woman I did not need a man to validate my life!  Though, if I was being honest, I definitely want one sometimes.

COVER-SHEENA

 

Hi everyone!! After a brief hiatus, Love & Drama: The Root Of All Evil, the interracial standalone, is back on Amazon! The story was originally under my former publisher, but now, I’m releasing it as an indie standalone. It’s the same story, but a different cover. That’s all.

If you are unfamiliar with this story, here is the blurb:

He’s a hitman who’s trying to change his ways.
She’s the good girl that loves to do bad things.
When these two are together, anything is possible.

When Zuri Caldwell meets Damon Baxter at a club five years ago, she never expected for her life to be turned upside down. After having a one-night stand together, she never realized she would be seeing him again, until she sets foot in his classroom.

While they try to stay away, the attraction is still there that the two cannot deny, leading them to have a discreet relationship. That is, until Zuri moves to California for an executive position.

Five years later and she is back in Houston, lost on her luck since she was fired from her job over an event that went extremely wrong. She encounters Damon again, which sparks up old memories. Even though Damon wants her back, Zuri doesn’t since she just got over an engagement. However, that doesn’t mean she won’t sample a little of what he’s offering.

The two fall back into a sexual relationship that could prove dangerous since Damon has been living a double life. He tried to leave his old life as a hitman behind, but his past keeps catching up with him, forcing him into doing one last hit. He never wanted to do it, but there’s a reason he has to, Zuri. There’s one catch though, she has to be involved as well. Mainly because her ex-fiancé is the target.

The two have to find a way to get what the men need without tipping off anyone, including their friends, Zuri’s parents, and most of all, her ex. But can the two do it without having their feelings get involved?

Sample Sunday: Love & Drama: The Root Of All Evil

wp-1453293418141.jpg

 

Hi everyone! Since I haven’t been on my blog recently, I’m giving you all two Sample Sunday posts! This one is from Love &   Drama: The Root Of All Evil, which is avaiable now!

This excerpt is when the main characters, Damon and Zuri, unexpectedly see each other again in an unlikely place after their one-night stand together. This is also from Zuri’s POV.

I can’t believe I did that! I’m still in shock that I slept with a complete stranger. I’m not going to lie, it was good. Damn, it was good, but just because it was doesn’t excuse the fact that I fucked someone that I just met not too long ago. That was tacky and nasty and those two things are not me.

Once I got over the initial shock of my actions, I tried to leave Damon’s place, but while I was in the middle of putting my dress on, he picked me up, put me on the top of his dresser and ate me out until I was too weak to move. This guy was perfect. He’s sexy, funny, and can make my pussy cum more in one night compared to my entire life; but regardless of all that, I couldn’t be with him; that’s why after we had sex for the third time, I grabbed my clothes and snuck out while he was asleep. Now it was the next day and I was walking into my Principles of Economics class exhausted but a little happy all because with the night I had, it was well worth it.

I sat down in a seat besides Nicole as she gave me a smirk. “Nice to see you this morning. I didn’t think you were going to make it to class since you were out all night.”

“I did come back to the apartment. I guess you had a good night too.”

“It was good. Chandler took me back home, kissed me and left. He was the perfect gentleman. I can only imagine what you were up to, you little hoe.”

“Does it look like I did anything? Damon and I just talked the entire night.”

“Sure, so I guess you didn’t see all those hickeys on the left side of your neck. I guess he was already branding his territory.”

I quickly pulled out my compact and opened to the mirror. Sure enough, there were a bunch of marks on my neck that I didn’t even realize were there.

“Damn it.”

“Shit, he must had put it on you good. But I’m surprised at you. You never get down on the first encounter.”

I sighed. “I know; it just happened.”

“It’s those eyes. Trust me, you did the right thing. Too bad you won’t see him again.”

I glanced at her and she shrugged. She’s probably right. Even if there was a chance of us seeing each other again, I kind of ruin us getting together since I left his place in the middle of the night.

I was about to pull out my iPad when the doors swung open and someone walked in. Someone that I was not expecting at all.

“Good morning, class, how is everyone today.” He said as he put down his briefcase and looked at us. He looked into the crowd and automatically spotted me sitting in the second row. He couldn’t take his eyes off of me as he mumbled shit. Several students turned to see what he was staring at. I quickly looked into my backpack, pretending I was looking for something.

Damon cleared his throat before going to the projector. “My name is Damon Baxter and I’ll be filling in for Professor Thomas for the remainder of the semester.”

Nicole giggled. “Damn, you fucked the professor.”

I punched her shoulder as several people turned to stare at me. Damon looked at me again before going to the projector to start class. I was already feeling guilty over what I’d done, but to know I slept with an instructor really made me feel like a slut. I lowered myself in my seat, praying that class will be over soon.

I also created a trailer for the story. You can see it clicking on the link below. 😀

Coming This Monday!!! 

Hello everyone!! I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend! For several weeks, the reason why I have been away from my blog is because I have been extremely busy with writing various books for the new year. One in particular is a standalone that will be released this Monday!!! This one I am so excited for because not only is it a standalone, but also an interracial romance novel. But of course, it has several twists and turns to keep you all entertained.

This new novel, Love & Drama: The Root Of All Evil, has everything: Romance, sex (lots of sex), suspense, and adventure. It’s sort of like Something Just Ain’t Right, but a bit more edgier. 

Here is the cover as well as the blurb from the story: 

  


Love & Drama: The Root of All Evil (BWWM)

He’s a hitman who’s trying to change his ways.
She’s the good girl that loves to do bad things.

When these two are together, anything is possible.



When Zuri Caldwell meets Damon Baxter at a club five years ago, she never expected for her life to be turned upside down. After having a one-night stand together, she never realized she would be seeing him again, until she sets foot in his classroom.

While they try to stay away, the attraction is still there that the two cannot deny, leading them to have a discreet relationship. That is, until Zuri moves to California for an executive position.  

Five years later and she is back in Houston, lost on her luck since she was fired from her job over an event that went extremely wrong. She encounters Damon again, which sparks up old memories. Even though Damon wants her back, Zuri doesn’t since she just got over an engagement. However, that doesn’t mean she won’t sample a little of what he’s offering.  

The two fall back into a sexual relationship that could prove dangerous since Damon has been living a double life. He tried to leave his old life as a hitman behind, but his past keeps catching up with him, forcing him into doing one last hit. He never wanted to do it, but there’s a reason he has to, Zuri. There’s one catch though, she has to be involved as well. Mainly because her ex-fiancé is the target.  

The two have to find a way to get what the men need without tipping off anyone, including their friends, Zuri’s parents, and most of all, her ex. But can the two do it without having their feelings get involved? 

And here is a an excerpt from Zuri’s POV. Enjoy ! 🙂 
“Are you ready?”

I glanced at Damon, feeling completely terrified to what we were about to do. He held my hand, squeezing it while his blue eyes stared into mine. I looked behind me, wondering if we were still being chased. Luckily, Damon found a way to get them off of our trail.  

He flashed that smile of his that made my pussy wet. This is not the time to be thinking about that, especially when they’re people trying to kill us.  

“You know I got you, right?”  

I nervously nodded. “I know. I trust you.”  

We heard gunshots as I looked behind me. Damon pulled me to the edge, yelling we have to go. I gave a silent prayer, asking God to keep us safe as I closed my eyes, not wanting to look where I was heading.  

“Zuri, let’s go!”  

I quickly opened them as we jumped off the edge of the cliff, heading towards the rushing waters, hoping we don’t die.  

From the time I’ve known Damon, he turned my life upside down. But in the two months that we have reconnected, never did I imagine it would be this crazy. That’s why I didn’t let him back into my life. Now, I have to wonder did I make the right decision in getting back with him. 

I guess I would never know the outcome. Or, will I? 
Five Years Earlier… 

“Girl, I told you we should have left early. Now, we have to pay.”  

I looked at my friend, Nicole Easley, and sighed. Leave it to her to worry about being at the club on time. Even though Bases is the new club in the city, I could care less since I didn’t even want to go out. She dragged me out since she broke up with her boyfriend, Malik, for the hundredth time, and wanted to celebrate. I’m pretty sure she’ll be back with him by the end of the night. They always do.  

I looked behind me, wishing I could leave, when someone caught my attention. He was talking with a group of guys when he looked over and stared at me. Our eyes locked as he gave a sexy smile.  

“Damn, he’s fine,” Nicole said.  

“I know right,” I agreed. I continued to stare as he turned to his friends. He stepped out of line and came over to me, which caught me by surprise. With his porcelain skin, sky blue eyes, and short wavy black hair, he was even sexier up close as his eyes roamed my body.  

“Hey.”  

“Hey. You know you can’t just skip the line. People might start a riot.”  

“I hardly doubt that. If so, it’ll be worth it.”  

I smiled and he stepped closer to me. “What’s your name?”  

“Shouldn’t I be asking you that?” 

“I asked you first.”  

“Zuri.”  

“Sexy name, which fits you perfectly.”  

I looked over at Nicole who was fanning herself. He was still giving that smile, which quickly had me clutching my thighs. He keeps doing that and I might have to do something about it, in other words, do him.  

“Let me see if your name fits you.”  

“Okay. Damon.”  

I smiled. “It definitely does.”  

“You think we could talk some more, that is, if your friend doesn’t mind.”  

“Hell no! Go do your thing, girl. I have my eyes on your blonde friend anyway,” Nicole said while waving at him.  

“That’s Chandler, and yes, he’s single.”  

“My kind of man. Excuse me,” she said and went over to him.  

I smiled. “That’s typical of her.”  

“So, do you do this often? Pick up random guys at clubs?” Damon asked.  

I laughed. “I think it’s the other way around. You came over and talked to me.”  

“I couldn’t resist. You’re sexy as hell.” 

“You’re not so bad yourself.”  

“I think I’m more than that, especially with how you’re looking at me.”  

He came over to me. The scent of him and his Gucci cologne overcame me, making me even more wet. I didn’t think that was possible.  

“You want to fuck me right now, don’t you?”  

I glanced at him. I couldn’t believe he just said that.  

“Aren’t you bold?”  

“I’m just telling the truth.”  

“I’m not that type of girl.”  

“No one is ever quite what they seem.”  

I glanced at him as I didn’t realize we were near the entrance. The bouncer asked for our IDs, but Damon shook his head. He took my hand as we went out of the line.  

“What are you doing?”  

“Let’s get to know each other.”  

“But my friend…”  

“She said she’ll be fine.”  

“Yeah, but if we were in the same place. I’m not going anywhere with you.”  

“You don’t want to get to know me?”  

“You could be a damn killer.” 

“Do I look like I could be?”  

“A lot of fine looking men were killers.”  

“We won’t go far. In fact, we can go to the diner next door.”  

I stared at him, wondering if I should. I’d never done this before. I was usually the responsible one. I looked at Nicole, who was encouraging me to go. I put up the peace sign, which was her code to tell me to call if I didn’t hear from her within two hours. I didn’t think I would be using it for myself. 

Damon nodded and we walked to the diner. He looked at me and smiled.  

“So, I’m assuming you never done this before.”  

“Does it look like I have? What are you trying to say?”  

“I’m not saying anything. I just assumed because you look nervous. You don’t have to be. I’m harmless. Besides, if you didn’t want to, you could have said so.”  

“Yes, I could have, but as you can see, I didn’t.”  

“That’s because you want to fuck me.”  

“Wow, you’re cocky.”  

“I just call it how I see it. Believe me, if you do, then the feelings are mutual.”  

I blushed as we walked inside. We found the closest booth to sit down and I started to play with my menu. Damon looked ahead as something caught his attention. I looked over and saw three men staring at him. I quickly turned around, wondering what the hell was going on.  

“Is everything okay?”  

He nodded. “Yeah, everything is cool. You can order something if you want.”  

“I’m good. Thanks.”  

We sat in silence for a few minutes before Damon started to ask questions. The two of us got into a conversation about everything from our favorite food, music, even our childhood. After four hours of talking, I didn’t even realize that Nicole had called twice.  

Damon checked his watch and smiled. “I didn’t realize how late it was.”  

“Me either. It was nice to actually have a decent conversation with someone.”  

“I’m not sure what guys you’ve been talking to, but I like my women to be sexy and stimulating, which you definitely are. There is one other question I want to ask.”  

“What’s that?”  

“Have you been with anyone outside your race?”  

“Honestly, no.”  

“Have you thought about it?” 

“I have.”  

“If you’re wondering, I’ve been pretty diverse. I think all women are beautiful, so I don’t have a preference.”  

I nodded. “I really think I should go. I’m pretty sure Nicole is looking for me. We have classes tomorrow and we shouldn’t be out so late.”  

“I do too, but I’m not leaving. In fact, I don’t want the night to end.”  

“It’s going to have to.”  

“No, it doesn’t. Come home with me.”  

“Whoa, what? If you think that I’ll…”  

“I’m not thinking that. I just want to get to know you better.”  

“Which you have and can another day.”  

I got up when he gently grabbed my hand. I stared into those blue eyes of his, being completely hypnotized by them.  

“What do you say?” 

I slowly nodded, not knowing what the hell I was doing. He got up and put his hand on my waist as we walked out. I hope I don’t regret this.  

Remember, Love & Drama: The Root Of All Evil will be available only on Amazon on Monday, January 18th! 🙂
