Summary

New York Times best-selling author Mary Monroe returns to the 1930s era of her acclaimed novel The Upper Room with a dazzling portrait of two very different couples whose friendship and fast times are no match for shattering betrayal.  A solid marriage, a thriving business, and the esteem of their close-knit Alabama community - Joyce and Odell Watson have every reason to count their blessings. Their marriage has given well-off Joyce a chance at the family she's always wanted - and granted Odell a once-in-a-lifetime shot to escape grinding poverty. But all that respectability and status comes at a cost. Just once, Joyce and Odell want to break loose and taste life's wild side, without consequences.  When their new neighbors turn out to be high-steppin' bootleggers Milton and Yvonne Hamilton, the Watsons plunge headlong into good times and fast living. For Joyce, Yvonne is someone she can show off to - and look down on. And Odell won't introduce crude, unsophisticated Milton to his friends - but is happy to let Milton ply him with free booze and good times. Milton hates being slighted and disrespected, and he's determined to do something about it. When Milton inadvertently discovers Odell's scandalous double life with a long-term mistress, he decides this is the perfect chance to wreck the Watsons' perfect world.

Summary

For some, the allure and power of the streets are elusive but yet, a wonder to behold. Some engage in this lifestyle of self-destructive criminal behavior, knowing one day it might cost them their family, freedom, or something even far more valuable...their lives.  Four-time New York Times besting-selling author Wahida Clark is no stranger to the streets. She served nine-and-a-half years in federal prison. The Bronx's very own Shannon Holmes, author of the national best seller B-More Careful, is no stranger to "Street Lit or the Streets". He served five years himself.  Together, they handpicked a select group of authors, each with his or her style and unique flavor of urban literature. So, take a walk on the wild side with us through a hood near you, into sticky situations, where everything is not always what it seems. For the characters in this book, the money stakes are high, and lives are up for grabs. Respect is earned - and power is taken.  In Street Tales, you'll listen about stories of survival and redemption, as well as tales of greed, lies, betrayal, and street justice. You will come face-to-face with life-altering choices and circumstances beyond your control. What would you do in the same situation?  These are Street Tales. Around the clock, life and death stare you in the face. There are no second chances - the streets play for keeps. Many learn the hard way that the streets are undefeated. Authors of Street Tales: A Street Lit Anthology: Shannon Holmes, Wahida Clark, Victor L. Martin, Sa'id Salaam, Reds Johnson, Hood Chronicles, Joe Awsum, and Vance Phillips

The Purest Love for the Coldest Thug

Summary

Who knew someone so dangerous could be so damn irresistible? The middle child of three girls, Solána Winters, was always one to oppose her mother’s wishes for her to be the typical good girl. However, deep down Solána knew her stubbornness had sent her mother to an early grave. After tragedy strikes, she gets back on the right path and focuses solely on herself...until she stumbles upon a bewitching addiction like no other, with not a single cure in sight.  Kisan, known to many as Mace, on the surface appears to be a collected, handsome, and prestigious young man. And he is...among many other things. Those that know more, know him to be bold, calculated, and extremely cold-hearted. They know how crazy he truly is; how he can lay one finger on a trigger and aim perfectly without fail; a gentle giant to not one single soul but the only woman who has his heart - his three-year-old.    Kisan and Solána are immediately drawn to each other, sparking an uncontrollable fire between them that neither party are able to put out. However, when the attractive heavy hitter and stubborn beauty’s worlds collide, it sets off a cascade of life-changing events. Events that not only change their lives but the lives of everyone around them. Loving a man like Kisan could potentially be the most intense and intimidating thing of Solána’s life, but is she willing to risk it all for a man she should be running far away from? And is Kisan willing to let a woman access the deepest, darkest parts of him? They say the purest love is hard to find...but now that Kisan has found it, can he make it last? Or will his inner demons get the best of him?
