The Family that Lies Kindle Edition by Lakisha Johnson & LaQuisha Rucker

Image
Profile:

"Born only months apart, Merci and Grayce Alexander were as close as sisters could get. With a father who thought the world of them, life was good. Until one day everything changed.

While Grayce got love and attention, Merci got all the hell, forcing her to leave home. She never looks back, putting the past behind her until … her sister shows up over a decade later begging for help, bringing all of the forgotten past with her. Merci wasn't the least bit prepared for what was about to happen next.

Merci realizes, she’s been a part of something much bigger than she'd ever imagined. Yea, every family has their secrets, hidden truths and ties but Merci had no idea she’d been born into the family that lies."

Profile:

"One family. Eight sisters, tangled in romance. Felicity Moore, an actuary and entrepreneur, deals with facts and numbers as the foundation of her business. Her hard work and nurturing dedication is what makes her a leader in the industry. It’s the one thing that her world revolves around on a daily basis, and because of it, there had been no time for love or no place for a relationship in Felicity’s life.
It is the sole reason why when Garrett Thompson enters her life, Felicity doesn’t take him seriously. Especially with him being a trust fund baby. He’s never had to work to earn a living. Although Garrett does dabble in philanthropic endeavors, he spends much of his time living in the lap of luxury; doing the things he wants to and nothing that he doesn’t have to. Garrett lives by choice, and any relationship he’s had in the past has been an accessory to his lifestyle not a primary focus. With Garrett living life on his own terms, what if anything do they have in commo…

"T. J. Wray grew up in a small town. He grew up quick and got his first job at only thirteen years old. He knew people depended on him to do his job every day. So for two years he never missed a day. No matter the weather conditions, he always got the job done. He learned responsibility for his actions at a very early age. He was very active in his church and with his youth group. He learned a lot from the positive role models in his church like his youth pastor and his Sunday school teacher. He didn’t party or drink in junior high or high school. He was responsible and went to work after school. He got his driver’s license at age fourteen and drove himself everywhere, while the other kids still rode the bus. Even though he was a teenager, he was an adult! He really enjoyed life in a small town. Everybody knew him and knew his truck. They would wave at him as he drove down the street. They would say hello as they passed on the sidewalk or in stores. He said that in a sm…

Good Love Kindle Edition by Cheryl Robinson

"When Sarita Saint starts to have visions of Sharon, her deceased best friend, she’s reminded of the promise she made—that she’d marry Sharon’s husband, Boone, and raise their children together. Sarita never meant to keep that promise. But even from the grave, Sharon is having her say. 

Sweet, reliable, patient Boone has always loved Sarita—through every bad relationship she dives into. Now he has a plan to take her away from the painful memories in Detroit to a beautiful horse ranch in Texas that he inherited and run his family’s business.

For both, the move would mean leaving the security of well-paying jobs to embark on a new venture as restaurateurs. For Boone, having the opportunity to develop an even deeper bond with Sarita is worth the risk. For Sarita, Texas could be the perfect escape from her past. But will it lead to love?"

The angel, Gyldan, is the most beautiful being she’s ever seen. She is drawn to him but sometimes beauty disguises wicked secrets. This man who rocks her world seems more demon than angel.

Gyldan, born into slavery, has one desire—fly free. When he escapes to Earth, he faces an alternate self-realization full of dark glory…and disbelief. Gyldan is bent on experiencing his newfound powers unmindful of the harm to Brit or others. 

Confused and hurt by Gyldan’s erratic evil actions, Brit turns away. While Gyldan’s journey of self-discovery pulls him further distant, Brit finds acceptance in a solitary, comfortable life of her own until she realizes the day of reckoning has come. Will Gyldan be her final ruin or has he come back to her with a gift more precious than life itself?"

BEAUTIFUL VENGEANCE Kindle Edition by Perri Forrest

Profile:

"Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Rikki Johnston. I'm a thirty-year-old web designer, from Oakland, California. I have two cousins, Angelique and Angel; one is a bomb-ass hairstylist, while the other is a CSI technician for the Oakland Police Department. We're all well-rounded women making our way in life the best way that we can. We're a close-knit trio with a secret: We kill people. Not to be confused with serial killers. See, serial killers commit a series of murders, often with no apparent motive. That's where we differ. When we kill, there's always a motive.

The start of it all . . .

Fifteen years ago, our lives were touched by a devastating tragedy. My cousin, Audrey, who was Angelique and Angel's mother, was gunned down on the streets of Oakland. We were right there when it happened. We were right there to cradle her lifeless body. How do you get past losing someone you love in such a violent and senseless way? You don't.

But they…
