Zane, the New York Times bestselling author and Queen of Erotic Fiction,
brings a new collection of lesbian erotica that will blow the sheets off
What happens when "The Finest Man" you have ever laid eyes on is a woman?
What happens when a woman comes home to her man after a hard day's work with
"Lipstick on Her Collar?" What happens when a married woman runs across the
love of her life -- another woman -- who insists that "It's All or Nothing?"
Is there such a thing as playing too "Hard to Get?" What happens when "Mom's
Night Out" turns into group sex? What happens when you discover your true
sexuality "At Last?" All of these questions and more are answered within the
pages of Purple Panties.
Written by women from all over the world, here is a new level of lesbian
erotica, compiled by Zane, that promises the most exciting and steamy
reading experience possible. These stories move beyond race, age, and all
walks of life, including long-hidden passions, secret rendezvous with
strangers, and May-December romances.
With Zane's ever-growing popularity, and the need for increasingly quality
erotica, Purple Panties will satisfy a long-standing demand for
African-American lesbian literature.
In the tradition of such successful erotica anthologies as Chocolate Flava
and Caramel Flava, Purple Panties uncovers a new world of evocative
risk-taking that has never been explored before from a lesbian perspective.
The adventures in these stories are beyond everyone's wildest imaginations.

Beloved writer J. California Cooper has won a legion of loyal fans and
much critical acclaim for her powerful storytelling gifts. In language both
spare and direct yet wondrously lyrical, LIFE IS SHORT BUT WIDE is an
irresistible story of family that proves no matter who you are or what you
do, you arenever too old
to chase your dreams.
Like the small towns J. California Cooper has so vividly portrayed in her
previous novels and story collections, Wideland, Oklahoma, is home to
ordinary Americans struggling to raise families, eke out a living, and
fulfill their dreams. In the early twentieth century, Irene and Val fall in
love in Wideland. While carving out a home for themselves, they also allow
neighbors Bertha and Joseph to build a house and live on their land. The
next generation brings two girls for Irene and Val, and a daughter for
Bertha and Joseph. As the families cope with the hardships that come with
changing times and fortunes, and people are born and pass away, the
characters learn the importance of living one's life boldly and squeezing
out every possible moment of joy.
Cooper brilliantly captures the cadences of the South and draws a picture
of American life at once down-to-earth and heartwarming in this-as her wise
narrator will tell you-’strange, sad, kind�a beautiful, life story.� It is a
story about love that leads to the ultimate realization that whoever you
are, and whatever you do, life is short, but it is also wide.

Hope and Faith: two things that everyone needs to survive.
But the words take on a different meaning in the form of a set of twins who
attend Crockett University in Washington, D.C. As seniors, they are looking
forward to a bright future in corporate America. Meanwhile, they have
decided to relieve some of the stress involved in getting a higher education
by being members of APF.
Soror Ride 'em High and Soror Lick 'em Low, originally
hail from Atlanta and, like most twins, they share a connection. In fact,
their physical bond is so strong, that one can often feel a pounding in her
vagina while the other is engaged in sexual activity. But everything is not
perfect when it comes to being a twin. Sometimes animosity and jealousy can
creep in; especially when Hope and Faith find themselves both attracted to
the same man on campus. Is blood really thicker than water? Or, in this
case, thicker than basic carnal desires?

100 Amazing Facts About the
Negro With Complete Proof
Click to order via
BLACK FACT: White American slave-holders used to induce white women to
marry Negro slaves in order to hold the women slaves for life.
PROOF: In Sept. 1664, Maryland passed a law that any white woman who married
a 'Negro' should serve the master of such slave "for life." Slave-holders
took advantage of this law to induce the white women, some of whom were
recent arrivals, to marry the "Negroes." MacCormac says, "Instead of
preventing such marriages this law enabled avaricious and unprincipled
masters to convert many of their (white) servants into slaves." In 1681, the
Legislature was forced to issue the following law: "Divers freeborn English
or white women sometimes by the instigation, procurement, and connivance of
their master.... and always to the satisfaction of their lascivious and
lustful desires....do intermarry with 'Negroes' and other slaves, be it
enacted that if any master....having any freeborn English or white woman
servant in their possession or property, shall by any instigation,
procurement, knowledge, permission or contrivance," cause her to marry a
slave she should be free at once and the master should pay a fine of "10,000
lbs. of tobacco." (Archives of Maryland, Vol. I, pp. 433-34; and Vol. III,
pp. 203-04, also Johns Hopkins University Studies in Hist. & Pol. Science,
No. 3 & 4.) What is true of Maryland was true of other states.
