Giselle King refuses to wait for time to pass her by without obtaining everything she desires. After fulfilling her goal of becoming a dental hygienist and having financial stability, she knows she’s ready for a family. Years of dating proved to be a waste. An arrangement was made to bless her with two beautiful children, who keep her busy, but she’s still not totally happy. She wants a loving relationship with the man of her dreams… a man that’s perfect for her. Impatience with the dating process causes her to make another arrangement. Arranged Hearts has a reputation of pairing couples, promising a high success rate. If an arrangement worked for having her babies, why wouldn’t it work for obtaining a husband?

The party scene of lust and temporary fulfillment was no longer appealing to Gentry Fleming. Those years have flown by in a haze, and now, his desires have shifted. As a successful veterinarian, the love of animals isn’t enough. He desires a family: a devoted wife and beautiful children. He’s already set his life up perfectly to accommodate them.

His patience is running thin, so he decides to hire someone to weed out the undesirable for him. Arranged Hearts seem like his best option, and he’s down to take the risk.

If the pairing is successful, love will eventually come. That can happen quickly, or it could take some time, but Giselle and Gentry are willing to work toward it. Their attraction and chemistry couldn’t have been matched better, but opposition rears its ugly head. Gentry doesn’t work well in an environment filled with drama, and Giselle isn’t a fan of it either. However, at this point, it is out of their control. Will the arranged hearts commit to forever, or will I do turn into I don’t?


WRATH (The Love Is Cure, Vol 1. Vices & Virtues Series Book 6) by Brookelyn Mosley

Lauryn James is a wayward waitress wrestling with a wrecking within. Asher Truesdale is a promising psychology student who is pure at heart. Lauryn’s got wrathful ways. Asher has Prince Charming principles. Her temper is explosive, and he has the patience of a saint to be her calm. How they met was divine timing. What they create becomes a magnet for miracles. A mistake they believed should have never happened was actually a catalyst for something always meant to be.


“Asher could do better than me. A lot better. He has a heart framed in love and I have a heart shadowed by rage. Because rage fueled me before meeting him and kept me safe. Ironically, Asher changed that. I hated men and wanted nothing more than to cause them as much pain as just one man caused me. But Asher was different. Asher is the guy a girl like me is supposed to only crush on but not actually attract. I have issues that are way too deep to solve. A life that was ruined before it could really begin. My past is way too dark to see light anywhere in it and yet he’s looked past all I think is bad to see my good. Even if I could accept that I got lucky getting the attention of a man with a heart of gold and the patience of a saint, there’s no telling how long it will take for him to realize that saving me is impossible. Not without losing himself.”


“I want to be the better Lauryn needs. She was never the plan, but then again, I don’t really follow plans all that well, anyway. I’ve never experienced hardship in my life, so providing the safe space she desires is an honor. Her issues are not her own and I want her to know I don’t find them to be the burden she thinks they are to me. Before meeting her, I believed I ruined my life, a life I’ve never quite been happy living, to everyone’s surprise. All that changed when I met her. She requires patience, a lot of patience, and I’ve got more than enough to give. Besides, love is kind and patient, and she deserves at least that after all she’s been through. If only she could see that I fully understand and I will meet her needs. If only she knew she was saving me just as much as she believes I’m saving her… if not more.”

Wrath is a passion that inclines humans to act with a desire for vengeance. The passion by itself isn’t good or evil, but it can take on a moral quality that is rooted in intent. Wrath, in this context, is a strong feeling of resentment and a thirst for revenge. Like every vice, there is its heavenly virtue. One that overcomes and transforms the opposing vice. And patience is wrath’s countering virtue. But can the patient one soothe the wrath in another, transmuting this vice by providing refuge with reason and love? Or will this wrath be too great and too justified that it ends up consuming them both?

WRATH is a standalone and book six in the Love is Cure, Vol. 1 – Vices & Virtues series. WRATH contains references to sexual assault, suicide, and depression. Please read “Message from the Author” for more detailed content warnings. This book contains sexually explicit content and profanity. Seven books make up this series. SLOTH is next…


Tell Me: The Prelude (Tell Me Series Book 1) by Tina Martin

I never wanted to fall in love.

At thirty-seven years of age, I haven’t taken the plunge, nor do I plan to. I’ve seen the damage love can do. It pretendsto care, but then it tears a person down. It’s manipulative. Damaging. It lies. It hurts. It makes one weak. I know that all too well after seeing what it did to my dear mother. That’s why when women – beautiful, successful women – try to get my attention, I easily shun them. All of them. They see the exceptionally fine, black man with money. They know nothing of the dark secrets I carry – secrets I can never share with anyone.

And then SHE happened – just appeared in my life out of nowhere.

Her gaze left me speechless while igniting a fire in my soul, stirring emotions I swore never to embrace. Something awakens inside me for the first time in decades, and I can’t control it. I’m not supposed to have these feelings. I was dead inside. Where did these desires come from? Why do I have this potent yearning to be close to her? To touch her? To kiss her lips?

This can’t happen.

So, I fight it. I can’t fall for her. Love was never a part of my plan. But these feelings coursing through my body are real, and I don’t know if avoiding her is something my heart will allow me to do.

Tell Me: The Prelude is book 1 and the introduction to Tell Me You Love Me and Tell Me You Want Me.
