Hey Girl! Check out these new releases from September 4th-10th!
Leslie’s Curl & Dye by DL White
“Of all the places you could have ended up, why are you here? Why didn’t you go home?”
“This is home. I’d think you would be happy to see me here, establishing a business, putting down roots.”
“When your roots pull mine out, we have a problem.”
Leslie Baker, owner of Potter Lake’s original hometown beauty shop, the Curl & Dye, has a problem.
Her problem isn’t her dwindling customer base. And it’s not the shifty, shady Mayor of the idyllic lakeside town.
Her problem is a muscular, handsome, 6’4” former basketball superstar with a solid physique and colorful sleeve tattoos. Kade “KC” Cavanaugh is back in Potter Lake following his NBA retirement and the business he’s opened, a slick and shiny co-ed salon, directly competes with Curl & Dye.
KC is all too eager to to pick things up where they left off fifteen years ago, but Leslie can’t forget how he pushed her away after an intimate encounter, then dropped out of college and left her behind for the bright lights of professional ball.
Though she won’t admit it, time and maturity have eaten away at Leslie’s anger and her long-buried attraction to Kade Cavanaugh has resurfaced.
With a vengeance.
Now there is a larger problem: Leslie and KC find themselves in the center of a city wide drama, and with both sides of Potter Lake at war and their livelihoods at stake, the two have to stop sniping at each other and start working together.
And maybe, in the process, forget the past and revive a budding romance that was very special…a very long time ago.

Their passion for one another is scorching and neither can deny the other feelings that are blossoming.
But when one of them is framed for a crime they didn’t commit, will they be able to overcome the obstacles and danger in their way?
Muhammad and Miko Maintaining: A Cinnamon Black Story by Angelia Vernon Menchan
“I want another child…” Miko said, walking up behind Muhammad as he got dressed for work. She looked into the mirror to see his reaction because more than a year earlier when she mentioned it, he had said no, emphatically. His reasoning was he was traveling the globe getting his music production business on track but that was no longer the issue. His and MII, his brother-in-law’s business was solidly established to the extent they had workers around the world working on their interests; MM BrownBlack Inc. was global. There was nothing on his handsome face she could read. Muhammad was the best at hiding his feelings. They had been through many things in their four years of marriage and she could only read him when he chose to be open.
“Miko, I don’t think we need another child. We are blessed with a brilliant baby who is doing great. Why start over?” He asked, turning to face her, looking down into her beautiful face. “Not only had that, but we both had surgery.”
“Because I want to. We can afford to have reversals.” Miko said, pulling back. She didn’t want Muhammad’s nearness to distract her.
“Well, I don’t want to. I love how things are now. I am doing my thing, you are doing yours and our kid is in school and doing well. Why can’t it be about what we have from now on?”
Miko stepped all the way back, looking at her husband, sensing something she couldn’t place her finger on.
“You are pretty emphatic Muhammad…” she said softly.
“If we wanted that, why the surgery?” He said, not breaking her stare.
“We weren’t thinking then.” Miko said and something shifted inside, showing on her face.
“Well, I’m thinking now and I’m not down.” Muhammad said, walking from the room. Miko felt enraged, she knew it was irrational but that’s how she felt.

Coffee with a Side of You by B. Love
Nyx Fifer went half on everything with a man that hadn’t committed to giving her all of him, so when Glenn left… Nyx was stuck carrying all of the financial weight he neglected to take with him – as if she wasn’t having a hard-enough time keeping her coffee shop up and running.
Rocco Tate was in the business of giving and taking. As a real estate developer, he gave to potential business owners that he believed he could profit from, and took the businesses of those that he believed he couldn’t.
When Rocco decided to invest in a few blocks and turn the space into an entertainment district he didn’t expect Nyx to stubbornly hold up his plan. Her business was clearly suffering because of the competition of a major coffee chain on the same street, and Rocco was sure Nyx would immediately jump on the opportunity to work with him.
Her persistence to keep her business matched his persistence to buy it from her. And as he pursued her business… Rocco also found himself pursuing Nyx’s heart. Tired of men withdrawing more than they deposited into her, Nyx refused to allow Rocco access to either… but will that consistently be the case? Or will she end up like the other hundreds of business owners that fell for Rocco’s devastating charm and hand over the keys to both her business and her heart?
