Be My Valentine (The McClendon Holiday Series) by Sean D. Young
Without the right heart note, the essence of love could vanish into thin air.
The McClendon Holiday Series, Book 3
Now that Patrice McClendon is at the helm of her mother’s aromatherapy company, she has ideas to propel Good Scents to the next level. Starting with developing a signature scent for Valentine’s Day.
She’s sure she’s found a perfumer with the training and artistry to assure the smell of success will be sweet. There’s just one problem. The best in the business is a temperamental perfectionist.
Jacques Germain is intrigued with the opportunity to work with a small-market company like Good Scents, but from his first tumultuous meeting with Patrice, her aggressive business sense overpowers the subtler notes of their underlying attraction.
Worse, once they’re in the lab, their chemistry proves volatile. To find the missing ingredient in Patrice’s make-it-or-break-it blend—and in their relationship—they’ll have to figure out how to work side by side instead of head to head. And trust that their deepest vulnerabilities could be their greatest strength.
Warning: Contains a driven businesswoman so close to success she can smell it, and a high-end “nose” who knows all too well how quickly the sweetest love can turn bitter.
Pulling Doubles (Wright Brothers Book 2) by Christina C. Jones
All Devyn wants – besides a tall, fine husband and eventually a few babies to fulfill her “about to turn thirty, running out of time, cute black family” dreams – is to finish her yearlong internship at University Hospital. She’s excited about the experience, eager to learn, glad to help wherever she can… it should be easy, right?
Well, it would be… if it weren’t for arrogant, know-it-all, always-got-something-to-say Dr. Joseph Wright. Devyn can’t stand him, and if his attitude is any indication, the feeling is mutual… or is it?
Joseph doesn’t “do” doctors. Or nurses. Or patients. Or anybody else who has anything to do with the hospital, for that matter. University Hospital has infiltrated enough of his life, and the last thing he needs is a blurring of the lines between professional and private.
… until smart, sexy, sassy Nurse Devyn Echols comes along, and stomps all over those lines.
When you’re pulling doubles with the person you hate to want so bad… something is bound to ignite.
Not Worth the Church’s Money by CaSandra McLaughlin and Michelle Stimpson
When the pastor of Lee Chapel passes away suddenly, his son, Willie Lee, Jr., is supposed to pick up the mantle. But “church” was never Willie Jr.’s forte…until his uncle Joseph convinces him that becoming the next pastor might prove beneficial financially.
Willie’s mother, Ephesia, hopes that her son will be able to fill his father’s shoes, but she has doubts. And Willie’s Aunt Galatia has no problem voicing her opinions about Willie Jr.’s deficiencies. In fact, she hopes that her husband (Joseph) will soon be able to take over the job of shepherding the church.
Amidst this uncertainty, Willie’s wife decides now would be a good time to leave, which means Willie Jr. must obtain and keep a job–something he hasn’t ever really had to do. Will the pressures of making ends meet cause Willie Jr. to abuse his position and the church’s money? Will he ever be able to live up to the prophecy his deceased father told? And will he learn his most valuable lessons before it’s too late?
Find out in this novel by bestselling Christian Fiction duo CaSandra McLaughlin and Michelle Stimpson.
The Fall by Nia Forrester
In the summer of her fifteenth year as a professor at Gilchrist College, Lorna Terry is at a crossroads and, she fears, also on the downswing of her career as the “sole remaining radical feminist in academia.” Having built her life on a theory of non-attachment, she is disturbed to find herself becoming very much attached to the somewhat younger, Malcolm T. Mitchell. A writer-on-the rise, and her college’s newest wunderkind, Malcolm is about to challenge everything she thought she ever knew about her life, her loves, and her work.
But her growing feelings for Malcolm may well be the least of Lorna’s worries. For some in her academic community, she has risen too far, and too fast. And for others, she is much too smug in her accomplishments, enjoys adulation she doesn’t deserve, and is much too proud. And you know what they say about pride …
It cometh before the fall.
The Blackbirds by Eric Jerome Dickey
They call themselves the Blackbirds. Kwanzaa Browne, Indigo Abdulrahaman, Destiny Jones, and Ericka Stockwell are four best friends who are closer than sisters, and will go to the ends of the earth for one another. Yet even their deep bond can’t heal all wounds from their individual pasts, as the collegiate and post-collegiate women struggle with their own demons, drama, and desires.
Trying to forget her cheating ex-fiancé, Kwanzaa becomes entangled with a wicked one-night stand—a man who turns out to be one in five million. Indigo is in an endless on-again, off-again relationship with her footballer boyfriend, and in her time between dysfunctional relationships she purses other naughty desires. Destiny, readjusting to normal life, struggles to control her own anger after avenging a deep wrong landed her in juvi, while at the same time trying to have her first real relationship—one she has initiated using an alias to hide her past from her lover. Divorced Ericka is in remission from cancer and trying to deal with two decades of animosity with her radical mother, while keeping the desperate crush she has always had on Destiny’s father a secret… a passion with an older man that just may be reciprocated.
As the women try to overcome— or give into— their impulses, they find not only themselves tested, but the one thing they always considered unbreakable: their friendship.
