Black Diamond Bay - Book 1
About This Book
When Ameenah Porter moves to the beach town of Black Diamond Isles to fulfill her dream of opening a smoothie shop, she encounters a man who is tall, dark and extremely handsome with a wicked taste for orange flavored beverages. She doesn’t need the distraction of a new man but Wade, who’s staying in the giant sized home at the end of her block, is irresistible.
Wade Marshall was supposed to spend the summer on Black Diamond Isles getting away from the rush of Brooklyn, ridding himself of the distractions that had been impacting his work so he can do what he does best– make beats. But the day he meets Ameenah, he becomes consumed by an entirely different and more attractive distraction–his bold, beautiful, sexy neighbor with the “glorious hips” and a penchant for ice cream.
Ameenah’s days at Tikis & Cream, her beachside smoothie shop, are spent cooling off her customers with her gourmet smoothie blends. Her nights on the shores of Black Diamond Bay are enchanting and romantic, and soon Wade and Ameenah find themselves in the middle of a Beach Thing, a fun, meaningless tryst that will end when the summer is over.
Or will it?
Wade is returning to Brooklyn at the end of the summer. Ameenah lives on Black Diamond. Neither want this Beach Thing to end… so is this fling really a fling or is it the beginning of something real… and will they realize it in time?
If you’re not yet ready to say goodbye to summer, join me for a trip to Black Diamond.
A Thin Line
About This Book
Lovers to Enemies… to Lovers?
After an emotional breakup way too far in the past, Preston Reid and Angie Campbell would be happy to never see or speak to each other again. But that’ll never happen as long they’re constantly arguing opposite sides of the same cases in court. And as long as their best friends are dating.
And now getting married.
The kicker? Their friends want Angie and Preston to plan their destination wedding. As Best Man and Maid of Honor, the two are forced to carry out all of the tasks of putting on a joyous, romantic, happy occasion… and not kill each other in the process.
But Angie and Preston are wise to this game. They see it as a ploy to rekindle a long dead romance and push them back together.
And as much as they don’t want it to work…it just might.
There’s a thin line between enemy and ally, love and hate.

About This Book
From the author of ANONYMOUS and Brunch at Ruby’s comes a decadent, sexy, indulgent Interracial Romance.
In a past life, Jackson Sweeney, child star and former member of award winning male vocal group ‘Boy Wonder’, was more rich and famous than he’d ever imagined he could be. But that was then. Now he’s returning home to Orlando to take on a new job– Music Director to rock’s reigning Prince, Rod Phillips. On an early morning shopping trip, he meets a disheveled insomniac named Shelby.
Shelby Morris is a troubled young woman in hiding and on the run. Her past involves a fiery accident, a murder accusation and an escape from Miami in the dead of night. She doesn’t sleep, so she wanders until dawn. On a warm twilight morning, she happens upon music’s most eligible bachelor at the grocery store.
Sparks fly, especially the next morning when they accidentally-on-purpose meet up again. After a flirty first date, they decide to meet up again the next week. And the next. And the next. Soon, Thursdays come to mean decadent chocolate cake, sweet red wine and two bodies intertwined.
Every attempt to get to know this beautiful, mysterious woman is rebuffed; Shelby is cagey, full of secrets that can’t be pried from her. Jackson can’t risk another relationship where he gives more than he gets… but Thursdays have become a habit that his body can’t do without.
Eight seconds turns Shelby’s life on end, luring an old enemy from the shadows. Jackson is poised to learn more than she ever wanted him to know about the woman she used to be. And this time, her mistakes could hurt someone she’s come to love.
This summer, Thursdays will never be the same!

Maxine Donovan is a self made woman but despite all she earns and owns, she’s on a constant quest for Mr. Right. Handsome, aloof Malcolm Brooks might just be The One, but when Malcolm’s attention turns toward her friend instead, Maxine is ready to risk a strong bond to fight for him.
Renee Gladwell left a lucrative job and a handsome boyfriend to nurse her father and Gladwell Books back to health. A temporary stay has turned into four years of struggling with Alzheimer’s and a family owned bookstore that is in no shape to sell. Renee is in limbo, caring for a man who is slowly forgetting his past—including her. When she meets Malcolm Brooks, her life brightens, but is love worth risking a friendship?
Brunch at Ruby’s is a funny, inspiring, soulful look into lifelong bonds that bend but never break.
