Zya’s newfound happiness is threatened by her ex, who’ll stop at nothing to win custody of their daughter. What lengths must she go to, to keep her family together?
Finally controlling her self-esteem and health issues, Dominque is determined to have a baby … even if it kills her. Will the love of her life, the man she never wanted—but always needed, stay by her side as she chooses such a dangerous path?

Excerpt :

“Curious, aren’t you? It’s the investigative reporter in you. Well, since you won’t live long enough to talk about it, I’ll tell you.” His back straightens, and he puffs out his chest as he brags. “People never question minor charges of $2.95 or $3.95. If you don’t get greedy and only charge them twice a year, you’ll have a steady income. All you need is a few cards, and it becomes a ripple effect. One hacked card’s charge history leads to many small retail shops with minimal credit card security. I steal the numbers and set up a recurring subscription charge. Cards are never present for those, and most people can’t remember what they subscribe to anyway, so they ignore those small charges. For every card I hack, I get a new charge history which leads to new retail stores, leading me to more cards, and so on. If you take your time and do it right, before you know it, you’re charging thousands of cards every month, all across the country. We’ve just reached my magic number of fifteen thousand charges this month, earning us over fifty thousand dollars.”
Amber can’t help herself—she has so many questions. “Doesn’t your merchant ask questions when you transfer the money?”
“Come on. You must know I’m smarter than that. It gets processed through several businesses we own whose losses”—he winks at her—“are discreetly sent overseas. I’d really love to go into even more details, but time’s a wastin’.”
He walks over to Christoph, who’s barely moving, and kicks him.
Christoph grunts so softly, you can barely make out any sound at all.
“This one here was an unexpected bonus. Had you not run into him—literally, while in Paris, he wouldn’t be here right now. I thought he was completely out of your life. He came running when you sent him a text saying you needed him right away. And here he is.”
Bill takes a gun out from the back of his waistband and slowly screws on a silencer, looking up at Amber.
Tears pool as Amber shakes her head violently. “Please don’t kill him. He didn’t do anything, kill me—not him. He’s innocent; he did nothing.”
“Oh, not to worry, I plan on killing you. We were innocent too. You need to take responsibility for your actions. What is it they say? Oh yeah—payback’s a bitch.” He turns around and, without pausing, aims the gun at Christoph’s chest and shoots, causing his body to jump on impact.
Janice and Amber’s bodies jump as well.
“Enough talk. I need papers, so I get Debra. You kill Brian, yes?” Roberto asks Bill.
“No!” Amber screams. “Leave Debra alone. She doesn’t love you. Leave her alone!”
Roberto turns and takes two steps toward Amber when Bill grabs his arm. “Don’t you dare lay another hand on her, or it’s you I’ll be killing.”

Synopsis :

Facade_CoverSex in the City meets Fifty Shades … without the Red Room.

Amber can’t get Patrick out of her mind. Night after night he haunts her dreams … teasing her … pleasuring her … owning her body … until her alarm rings. Left unsatisfied night after night, she devises a plan to bring her fantasies to life—with a platinum wig, blue contact lenses, and a new persona.
Stay-at-home mom Debra adores her husband but wishes for a little more spice and adventure in her life. When tragedy strikes, her dreams come true in ways she never imagined … or wanted, or did she?
Despite a hard life as a single black mother, up-and-coming fashion designer Zya finally has a successful business and a sense of security, despite the increasing persecution she and her daughter experience. Then a mysterious stranger comes into her life, challenging everything she thought she knew about love. But can it be real?
Gorgeous Dominque likes sex—wild, kinky, and lots of it. Secretly longing for something real and lasting, she settles for less, burying her insecurity and self-doubt between late-night trysts and eating disorder. Before long, she’s forced to face her fears, or succumb to them.
Four friends … each hiding behind a façade. But as fantasy clashes with reality, things aren’t always as they appear.

Amazon

Excerpt :

“Please be careful and go straight home, your stalker might be waiting for the perfect moment,” Zya begs.
“I am—straight home—promise,” Amber replies as she crosses her heart.
As Amber begins to back out of the parking lot, she changes her mind and puts her car back into park. Maybe I should see what Patrick is up to tonight?
Reaching for her phone to ask him for a late night tryst, she realizes her phone is gone. “DAMN!” She looks all around her car for it to no avail. Must have left it on the counter.
Reluctantly, she turns her car off and heads back inside. She hadn’t realized how dark it was when she came out, it’s pitch black now—shadows are everywhere. The hair on the back of her neck stands up while a shiver runs down her spine pushing her to practically run back into the shop.
At the exact same moment, the wig fitter, having found Amber’s phone, is racing outside to catch her, almost colliding with her in the doorway. “I believe this is yours,” she says, her heart racing from the near impact.
“Yes, thanks. Glad I realized it now and not when I got home.”
Amber, still contemplating her booty call, uses the light outside the door to look for Patrick’s number. She begins her walk back to the car lost in her thoughts, debating whether to call him, forgetting for a moment all about the threatening texts piling up in her phone.
As she opens her car door, a man comes up quickly behind her, wrapping his arm tightly around her chest. She starts to scream but it’s muffled by his other hand covering her mouth as he tries to turn her around. He’s strong, and his scent… I know that cologne… “Wait a minute? Christophe, is that you?” she asks as she’s spun around, entrapped in his arms.
“Mon Cherie, I cannot surprise you no more?” he says in a thick French accent.
Amber breaks down into gut-wrenching sobs. She can’t stop. She let her guard down for just an instant, a second too long, exactly the opportunity her stalker would need to get to her.
“I’m so sorry, I only want to surprise you,” He says trying to comfort her, feeling terrible.
Still shaking thinking about what could have been, yet relieved it turned out to be Christophe, “It’s okay. Wait a minute—it’s not okay! You scared the crap out of me! Stop doing that will you?” she says as she playfully slaps his arm.
“Promise, no scaring…surprise yes, scaring no. I never want to make you cry.”
“You didn’t make me cry. I’ve just been on edge lately—a little stressed out. I guess your timing was off. But then again”—thinking about that phone call she was about to make— “maybe your timing is perfect.”
Amber grabs Christoph by the back of his head kissing him deeply, passionately before he has a chance to react. “Who’s full of surprises now?” she asks catching him off guard. “Last time was amazing, but do you think we could go somewhere else this time instead of the back of my car?”
In the car parked one row over from hers, HE is watching and taking pictures. Oh you are going to pay for this. You think you’re safe—not within my reach. Good thing your Frenchman appeared, he saved you, this time…

Excerpt :

Stewart, raising his glass and toasting his friend, loudly proclaims, “Happy birthday, Bro. I’ll call Ladies-Ladies-Ladies tomorrow and see if we can get her back again for an encore.”
Patrick, blushing, excuses himself to get away and to be by himself for a few moments so he retreats to the men’s lobby restroom. No one has aroused him like that in years… he’d almost forgotten how it feels.
Still in disguise, Candy emerges from the ladies’ room catching sight of him as the door closes. Still caught up in the passion and the fire ignited in her, she follows him in.
Hearing the door open and assuming it was Stewart, “Man I can’t believe you guys did that to me. What kind of a birthday gift was that? You send me the most beautiful, sexy, incredible woman in the world to tease me for ten minutes, and then she leaves.”
“Maybe I haven’t left yet,” Candy responds.
Patrick spins around in disbelief to find her leaning against the wall just inside the door. “Thank you for the compliment, you’re not so bad yourself.”
“I’m sorry, I didn’t know it was you,” stumbles Patrick as his cheeks flush a bright red.
She flattered by his reaction, “You know, I had a hard time remembering there were other people in the room. If the music hadn’t stopped when it did, we may have ended up with more than we both bargained for.”
“I’m sorry the circumstances weren’t different. I would’ve liked to continue. You are definitely one expert seductress,” Patrick replies as he steps closer to her drinking her in from head to toe.
“Maybe one day, when you least expect it, we’ll pick up right where we left off,” she replies then turns exiting just before he reaches her.
“Maybe?” blurts Patrick going after her. “I want to see you again. Let’s have dinner. Can I call you?”
Turning around facing him in the elevator, “Let’s leave the ending as a fantasy for now.” She reaches outside and kisses him on the cheek. “We’ll see each other again, I promise.” Her words as the elevator door closes.
Her kiss leaves a burning imprint on his cheek. By the time he comes back to reality, she’s gone but not before he locks eyes one last time with the most beautiful woman he has ever met. He can’t shake it, but he knows her from somewhere.
Patrick rushes back into the conference room. “Stewart, you have to tell me who she is. I have to see her again,” he begs as he paces back and forth.
“I’ll call tomorrow and see what I can find out. Calm down man, she’s just a stripper. You really do need to get out more.”
The next morning a stunned Stewart visits Patrick at his office, “Patrick, you’re not going to believe this, I called about your stripper, Candy. It appears they don’t have anyone by that name there. In fact, they didn’t send anyone over yesterday. The order got canceled. I don’t have the slightest clue who your mystery woman is, but whoever she is, she must have a thing for you to go to all that trouble.”
