“Prior bad acts predict future bad acts.”
—Harper McCoy

Fear grips an isolated mountain town after drug dealer Dalton Southwell kills a rogue dealer and his entire family. Score settled; message delivered. But Dalton’s best-laid plans go awry when his brother Dennie takes a bullet in the gut. In a panic, Dr. Buck Buckner is kidnapped from the local ER, a pharmacy is robbed and the owner murdered, and the killers melt into the rugged Tennessee hills. Buck’s physician father calls in Bobby Cain and Harper McCoy to rescue his son from killers who would have little use for him after he saves Dennie; or worse, the wounded man dies. But which direction and how far did they run? What hideaway did they burrow into? For Cain and Harper it’s a race against time to locate the killers, safely retrieve Buck, and settle their own score.

“A born storyteller.”

#Featured “Beach Thing” by DL White

Wade Marshall, super producer to one of hip hop’s brightest stars, was supposed to spend the summer on Black Diamond getting away from the rush of Brooklyn, ridding himself of the distractions that had been impacting his work so he can do what he does best – make beats. But the day he meets Ameenah, he becomes consumed by an entirely different and more attractive distraction–his bold, beautiful, sexy neighbor with the “glorious hips” and a penchant for ice cream.

Ameenah Porter, daughter of successful New York restaurateurs, moves to the beach town of Black Diamond to fulfill her dream of opening a smoothie shop. She doesn’t need the distraction of a new man but the tall, dark and handsome Wade, who’s staying in the giant sized home at the end of her block, is irresistible.

Ameenah’s days at Tikis & Cream are spent cooling off her customers with her gourmet smoothie blends. Her nights on the shores of Black Diamond Bay are enchanting and romantic, and soon Wade and Ameenah find themselves in the middle of a Beach Thing… a fun, meaningless tryst that will end when the summer is over.

Or will it?

Wade is returning to Brooklyn at the end of the summer. Ameenah lives on Black Diamond. Neither want this Beach Thing to end… so is this fling really a fling or is it the beginning of something real… and will they realize it in time?

#Featured “Finding Cade (Dream Catcher Series Book 1)” by Bernice Layton

Finding Cade cover

~~~

I have this gift, an ability to transcend myself while I sleep. I never interact with anyone in this out-worldly place. I simply…watch.

I’ve heeded my aunt’s warning to not interfere while I roam freely around the world in my dreams. But that all changes when I find an injured man fleeing his captors.

Now, every night when I fall asleep I manage to find him. I can feel him—his presence caressing my skin. The more I see him, interact with him while I’m in this trance, the more I start to realize that there’s a reason I found him. There’s a reason I sense him wherever I go.

He’s in trouble. In the real world his life is in danger while the shadows keep his soul trapped in limbo.

I have to figure out how to help him, how to rescue him from the darkness.

I need to save…Cade.

#Featured “Forever 51: a handbook of menopause, addiction, and vampires” by Pamela Skjolsvik

~~~

Full of vampires with spray tans and menopause trying to twelve step their way to salvation, Forever 51 takes vampire fiction into terrifying new territory: middle age. A very funny, very bloody book about growing older and getting dead.  – Grady Hendrix, New York Times best-selling author of The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires

Veronica is eternally fifty-one years old with a proclivity for problematic drinking. Like most hormonally challenged women negotiating the change of life, she is a hot mess. To retain her sanity, she attends weekly AA meetings and adheres to a strict diet of organic, locally-sourced, (mostly) cruelty-free human blood from the hospice facility where she works. Her life stopped being fun about a hundred years ago, right about the time her teenage daughter stole her soul and took off for California with a hot, older guy. These days, Veronica’s existence is just that – an existence, as flat and empty as her own non-reflection in the bathroom mirror.

When her estranged daughter contacts her via Facebook, Veronica learns that she has one chance to escape her eternal personal summer: she must find and apologize to every one of the people she’s turned into vampires in the last century. That is, if they’re still out there. With raging hormones and a ticking clock, Veronica embarks on a last-ditch road trip to regain her mortality, reclaim her humanity, and ultimately, die on her own terms.

Fans of Alice Hoffman and Grady Hendrix will love the snarky and supernatural storytelling found in Forever 51.

#Featured “Flinging All Spring: Book Three of Sag Harbor Black Romances” by Lula White

~~~

“Give. It. To me,” Adella demanded now. As she leaned forward, sticking out her palm to receive it, she smelled liquor on Desmond.

“No.” Ignoring her request, Desmond held the silk scarf over the stair banister.

Adella’s eyes flapped in horror as it left his fingers, and sailed away from them, to the first floor below. Her nappy hair, unkempt and wild, was exposed. And now she felt naked, even as her fist clinched her robe across her throat.

Desmond sucked his lips, and the pupils of his eyes became airplane engines flying toward her. “Aside from lying about how you meet men, and concealing your natural hair, what else do you hide from the rest of the world?”

“None of your business. You had no right to do that.”

“In three days, you’re going to be my wife. You don’t think I have a right to know what’s really under there?”

Her fist still clutched her silk robe, and she glared at him. “No.”

 

Return to the hotbed of riches, rivalries and romance in the Black Hamptons.

Boston heart surgeon Adella English has finally built a life outside her family’s money. She has even found good love, and is headed toward a life of peace. Until Del receives a staggering phone call that changes everything.

Her beloved grandfather is on his death bed. And he wants to leave Adella everything. But he has one specific condition.

Bad boy ex-football player Desmond McLain could care less about his family’s construction empire. On top of that, he is an outsider to the Sag Harbor elites.

When his family demands that he marry a bourgeoisie woman he’s never met, he does something despicable that doesn’t win him any fans in Sag Harbor.

Now, to protect the future of their families, these two strangers must not only share a boardroom and a house, but a bed.

A disastrous prison sentence? Or will Desmond tap Adella’s secret garden this spring?

Follow childhood friends Maddy, Chrissy & Adella as they realize their strength while finding love on their rise to the top. This marriage of convenience, curvy girl, medium-heat romance is Book 3 in the Sag Harbor Black Romances. If you love hit television series Queen Sugar, these are your stories.
