The Prada Plan 

 

Southern Hospitality

 

51NliRFa7-LThe Kinkades were among the sexiest men in Texas. Each was blessed with good genes, a charming disposition, an alluring smile and that country boy swag. There were five of them- Blake, Cole, Tyler, Kamari and Big Country. Well built and well endowed, each Kinkade was finer than the next. Panties mysteriously became moist whenever one of them they entered a room. Yet, they all had girl problems. Sometimes you can have it all and still struggle with matters of the heart.

Quan Kinkade aka Big Country is a big man with a really big… personality among other things. Handsome, sexy, and adorably charming he’s considered a ladies man. Women are curious why he’s called Big Country and they all want to see if the legend is true. Ride with them as they verify just how big, Big Country really is.

Blake Kinkade is handsome, successful and incredibly wealthy. He has everything money can buy. Sexy as a man can be he is relentlessly pursued by women who want to handcuff him to their bedposts. Nobody, except his wife is aware that he’s harboring a scandalous secret.

Kamari Kinkade is a good looking, young, charismatic cowboy who has the world by the balls. Single, he wears his womanizing sexcapades as a badge of honor. Women old and young toss their panties at his feet. He can bed any woman in Texas, except the woman he truly loves.

Tyler Kinkade in a word is damaged. Perhaps, the more accurate term is broken. He lost his bride of two years to breast cancer and never recovered from the senseless loss. Heart broken he vowed to never love again. Seeking female companionship for sex only, he turned to prostitutes for comfort. Just when he was convinced love would never live in his heart again a woman he can’t live without unexpectedly walks into his life.

Cole Kinkade has been called a womanizing dick on numerous occasions. According to him it was a title well earned and well deserved. Women were toys for this cowboy. They were in his life to either stroke his huge ego, or his huge manhood. He figured he’d die old and alone and he was okay with it. Fortunately, fate had other plans… Plans which would bring the cold hearted cowboy to his knees for a woman he never knew he wanted.

Take a journey with not one but five panty dropping, gorgeous black cowboys as they navigate the murky waters of love, fidelity, commitment and casual, meaningless sex.

Southern Hospitality, an erotic romance novel by Brenda Stokes Lee will set your eReader on fire. Sorry, oven mitts are required but not included!

But she only had eyes for Darryon Jordan. Darryon was no good for Mackenzie, but it was something about him that kept her coming back for more.

Fast forward, ten years later, and Mackenzie King looks the total opposite of how she did in high school. How could the most talked about and popular senior go from being fit and in shape to overweight and miserable? Well, the way Darryon loved her brought her down that path.

Along Mackenzie’s journey, she comes into contact with ex NFL player for the Miami Dolphins, Janeiro Armstrong. Janeiro is every woman’s dream, but the only woman he seems to want is Mackenzie, and she just can’t seem to understand why.

Juicy Kim had a hard life growing up. Being the only daughter of a prostitute, she’s constantly been pushed to do things that she should have had no part in. When an opportunity arises for her to get enough money to leave home and start her own life, she jumps at it…even though it means she’ll have to risk her life by robbing Chi and Sin, two up and coming players in the dope game. But when Chi discovers her in the middle of the robbery gone wrong, her entire life changes.

Chi, the wild child…the craziest of the Savage twins, is a strong believer of the motto ‘live fast, die young’. His flashy style gave him the name Chicago, but his savage personality won over Juicy’s heart. But although Chi knows that Juicy is a woman like none other he’s met, he can’t let go of his past ways. Chance, Chi’s ex, is one part of his past that he can’t be without but he also can’t stop the fast living, party lifestyle that he loves more than life itself. Will his unwillingness to calm down cost him more than he really wants to give?

Sin is the quiet, more reserved twin. The oldest of the two, Sin has no problem playing the background and letting Chi do his thing. But Sin has a real issue when it comes to Chi’s treatment of Juicy. With Chi jumping in and out of Juicy’s life, it often leaves Sin as the one that she turns to when she needs someone she can trust. But when their relationship makes a turn into a direction that neither one of them suspected, no one is prepared for the outcome. What will happen when Juicy is forced to choose?

A SINFUL CALLING

Two years ago, to everyone’s surprise, Dillon Whitfield Black, the secret son of Reverend Curtis Black, boldly moved back home, married a woman named Raven, decided he was going to become a minister, and then founded a church right in the center of his living room. Today he’s pastor of a 1,000-plus-member congregation, and new members are joining weekly. Sadly, behind closed doors, Dillon is far from being a saint. Dillon has become more like the man his father was thirty years ago-consumed with money, power, and lots of women. His family may have let bygones be bygones, but they continue to keep their distance.

Not Alicia, though. This daughter of Curtis Black joins Dillon’s congregation, leaving her father’s church behind. The family has forgiven Alicia for marrying Levi Cunningham, the former drug dealer she had an affair with, but once Alicia realizes they will never fully accept Levi, she decides to see her family less and less. She and Levi are truly happy, however, guilt from her betrayal of Phillip and its aftermath casts a shadow over their wedded bliss.

DJGBC “Book Of The Month” Aug 2016: What If, A Walk Through Time by James Horton

What If, A Walk Through Time

by James Horton

Synopsis:

Throughout U.S. American History racism has played a key role in society. Often when we as a nation discuss slavery; it is from one point of view. The view is either as a black person telling their story of slavery from their thoughts as a Slave or as a white person doing the same as a Master. What I would like for everyone to do, is look at slavery as if the white man is the Slave and the black man is the Master.

13575549_10154383064722783_806737377_oBOOK EXCERPT-

She emerged from her kitchen, crossing in front of the windows, with a goblet of wine in hand. Victor cracked his neck, anxious for her next move. Secretly, he had been watching her for months now. Stumbling in late after a long night of partying, he was on his way to the kitchen, when he caught a glimpse of her in her living room completely naked, painting. Her free-spirited nudity captivated him. “She” was his Pearl, the nickname he had given her. The pearl necklace she wore faithfully, always hung loosely from her neck. A voluptuous, caramel beauty, she had the air of a regal African goddess. Mango-sized breasts hung naturally to her plump, round stomach. The deep arch in her back made her ass stand out as a prized stallion’s would. Victor loved to watch her ass jiggle loosely, as she casually walked around her apartment in the buff. He wanted to rub his hands across the stretch marks on each side of her hips. It was more than just the visual of her rust-colored, large areolas, or the plump vagina in between her legs. The passion and intensity displayed on her face, while she would sit in front of the easel and paint turned him on. Completely smitten by her, she was everything that he wanted in a woman and then some.
