Summary

"To whomever much is given, much will be required." For Jaylah, the scripture couldn’t be more true. Reporting the news is what she does. All she’s ever wanted was to be the next Oprah; a dignified Black woman who pushes against every stereotype of what America labels a Black women to be. Due to a traumatic past, she’s turned her back on her race. She mingles with a few Black women, but Black men are just no good to her. So, when she’s propositioned by her boss to infiltrate a prominent Black family in the city of Detroit, she jumps at the opportunity. The family is in the media because of a high-profile case, and Jaylah wants nothing more than to expose the family for how corrupt they are...and level up in her career even more. Her path to greatness is so close she can taste it. But everything changes when she meets Oshun David Lacoste. Jaylah finds herself at a crossroads in life. The pain she thought she’d forgotten resurfaces. The mask that she’s been wearing for years starts to slip, and she’s vexed about what to do. When she derails from her scheme to take down the Lacoste family, Jaylah will be left with one weighty decision that will change her life forever. Making the wrong one isn’t an option for her.

It's 1994, and the unexpected events of summer promise to be as hot as the heat itself in Chatham, New Mexico, for identical twin brothers Ransom and Harley Lawson.

She heads to Chatham in the hopes of finally meeting her estranged father when she stumbles into Immortals territory and into the arms of a lethal, green-eyed biker.   For Ransom, she is everything his 22-year-old heart will ever desire, even more than the title of "Prez".

One naughty kiss and she finds herself in a fiery predicament she never saw coming.   With both keeping secrets neither is prepared to share, the passionate air is thick with confusion. But, if two people have sex, can they still be friends? Or does seeing each other naked make for a situation too complicated to categorize?   Contains mature themes.

Notes from a Black Woman's Diary

Summary

A recommended book of 2019 from: Vanity Fair Vogue The Huffington Post A stunning multi-cast audio collection of fiction, diary entries, screenplays, and scripts by the brilliant African American artist and filmmaker, featuring the voices of Nina Collins, Mari, Bahni Turpin, Adenrele Ojo, January LaVoy, and Robin Miles. Relatively unknown during her life, the artist, filmmaker, and writer Kathleen Collins emerged on the literary scene in 2016 with the posthumous publication of the short-story collection Whatever Happened to Interracial Love? Said Zadie Smith, "To be this good and yet to be ignored is shameful, but her rediscovery is a great piece of luck for us." That rediscovery continues in Notes from a Black Woman’s Diary, which spans genres to reveal the breadth and depth of the late author’s talent. The compilation is anchored by more of Collins’ short stories, which, striking and powerful in their brevity, reveal the ways in which relationships are both formed and come undone. Also collected here is the work Collins wrote for the screen and stage: the screenplay of her film Losing Ground, in which a professor discovers that the student film she’s agreed to act in has uncomfortable parallels to her own life; and the script for The Brothers, a play about the potent effects of sexism and racism on a mid-century middle-class black family. And finally, it is in Collins’ raw and prescient diaries that her nascent ideas about race, gender, marriage, and motherhood first play out on the page. Kathleen Collins’ writing brings to life vibrant characters whose quotidian concerns powerfully illuminate the particular joys, challenges, and heartbreaks rendered by the African American experience. By turns empowering, exuberant, sexy, and poignant, Notes from a Black Woman’s Diary is a brilliant compendium of an inimitable talent and a rich portrait of a writer hard at work.

Summary

"How do you dream? Are your dreams in color or black 'n white? Do they feel surreal or all too real? Well, I'd like to introduce you to my little slice of bittersweet. These subconscious woods hold every fear and my anxieties masked are as wolves. Nightmares that play on a loop for weeks, even months at a time. Symptoms of waking in cold sweats and shaking. The only moments of peace are found in the sporadically studded dreams that happen every now and again. These woods house every past demon as well as certain past versions of who I once was. This place is worse than death, yet it inspires. So...before my alarm goes off, before I take the last train out of here, I take one last glance back, one last glance at all of the Polaroids, pinned to every tree branch, polaroids of every dream and nightmare that have stolen my nights since '95.... These dreams...these woods...this place...it's my upside-down. This is my Slumberland....

Summary

It's 3:00 am.... While most minds are in a blissful state of slumber, mine is wide awake conjuring and pondering endless thoughts. Eyes are fixated on the dark popcorn ceiling above and ears are soaking in blue tunes as my autopilot mind becomes overwhelmed with the past, future, and every cherry topped dream in between. These thoughts range from warm and fuzzy to dark and slightly crippling. Sometimes, I wish that my mind had an off switch so that I could power down at night. No such luck. So, wakie wakie! Grab yourself a coffee and a snack because it's 3:00 am and I have so many thoughts to share with you.

For Her Benefit

Summary

Tonight, I risk it all.  My fortune.  My freedom.  My love.  My so-called brothers in oath have betrayed me. Perhaps they forgot how many of their secrets I’ve been keeping.  Tonight, vengeance is mine.  But when it comes to heisting a priceless diamond there is no simple plan. There will be blood. After all, there is no such thing as a bloodless coup.  I’m not the only one risking it all. At the center of it all is the woman I never saw coming. The woman who owns my heart.  What a tangled web I’ve woven, trying to find honor amongst these thieves.  The good news is, I know who to trust.  The even better news...I know who to burn.

Summary

It began with betrayal. And ended in murder. She was never supposed to cross my path.  She was never supposed to know about the Currency of Secrets or the Oaths of Blood. But like a thief in the night, she stole my soul even if she wasn't mine to possess. As a member of the Elite, I live by simple tenets. A gentleman above all. Private matters stay private. Secrets whispered are never revealed. Enemies and friends are of the same coin. And power is king. My so-called brothers killed my friend. I intend to make them pay. And before it's over, I'll bend all the rules of morality, decency, and legality. I will borrow and steal to set the scales right. But begging - begging, you can forget about. My name is Ben Covington and I know my sins.
