Hey Girl!

Check out these new releases from July 10th-16th.

Unforgettable Time by Tiye

Every powerful man needs his woman.

All retired NFL star Nasir St. Cyr wants is to be respected more than for his athletic talent on the field. To be seen as more than a fatherless boy with a troubled past. To be seen as a man who can lead a city. And to not lose the only woman he’s ever loved.

All single parent Regina Hargrove wants is to be respected as a hard-working woman. To be seen as worthy of walking by Nasir’s side. To not be judged for her choices and past mistakes. And to be totally owned by the only man she craves but doesn’t entirely trust.

All he has is six months.

Nasir is on borrowed time to gain the city’s trust and her heart. As he battles two powerful families for a seat at the head of the table, old wounds are re-opened, and new revelations threaten to destroy the love of the woman he needs by his side.

If he only realizes her love is all the power he needs before it’s too late.


Signature of You by K.C. Mills

One decision can shift your entire life. Sometimes the shift lands you in the middle of chaos and sometimes you find yourself perfectly positioned for the peace and happiness your heart longs for.

Cadence was forced to run to protect the one person she would give her life for.

Sol was forced to run to protect the one person who he feels that he failed.

You can’t hide from your indiscretions and you definitely can’t hide from your heart. When two creative souls are drawn to each other with an undeniable connection, the riffs and harmonies are a beautiful complicated mess.

Nothing really matters but the melodies that bind them because she’s his Cadence and he’s her Sol.


For Love’s Sake by Connie Easton

Naiari James is the last person to run from a fight, but when it comes to the love of her life, that’s all she can do. As a woman that loves hard, she puts her feelings to the side to protect the one thing she can’t lose. Her past taught her not to expect much, so disappointment never fazed her.

Sawyer is the man you wanted stepping behind you. He showers those close to him with unimaginable love and affection. In his world, nothing is out of reach, except the one woman he’s sought after for years. If life taught him one thing, it was to cherish what was in front of you because it can be taken at the drop of a dime.

Love tends to bring you back to the life you tried to ignore but so does the past if you aren’t careful.
