Gotta Be on Top
So says Darius Jones. At twenty-two, he's grown -- but he hasn't necessarily grown up. He still thinks the opposite sex exists purely for his satisfaction. Not that he doesn't know how to pleasure a sister; he just doesn't want them telling him the way it's going to be. But trying to be on top all the time only gets him into trouble with the women in his life -- including Fancy Taylor. With a regal bearing and skin like brown sugar, Fancy's definitely intriguing. Darius is sure he'd enjoy sampling what the lady has to offer, but that's all. Fancy's past precludes her from being serious relationship material. Yet fate has a way of stepping in and putting the wrong people on the right path...
Caught between pride and the call of his own untrusting heart, Darius has a lot to learn: about life, women, and what it takes to find and nurture real love. And if he's not careful, he might just end up on the bottom of everything ...
Again Once More
Do we choose love, or does love choose us? That's the question Jada Diamond Tanner can't seem to stop asking herself after ten years of marriage. She thought she'd chosen the right man in Lawrence Anderson, her steady, reliable husband and the man who helped raise her son Darius. But did she choose the right life when she turned her back on Wellington Jones, the soulmate whose fiery kisses took her body and spirit to a higher level than she ever dreamed possible?
For twenty years, Jada has struggled to keep her distance from Wellington, and he's paid her in respect. But now, the cracks in Jada's carefully constructed life are beginning to show. Darius is a young man out of touch and in trouble. When his destructive behavior threatens to destroy him, Jada reluctantly lets Wellington take more control and be the father Darius needs.
With each day back in Wellington's company, Jada begins to question the choices she has made in her life-choices made out of fear, out of foolish pride, out of denial. Slowly, she begins to realize that she still has one choice left: to get true to herself. Armed with the courage and the fire she's been missing for years, Jada's out to seize the opportunity she thought she had lost-and this time, she'll say, "never again once more."
