Jedidiah’s Crowning Glory (Crowne Legacy Book 3) by Sherelle Green
Ever experience lust at first sight and know the person is wrong for you in every way?
My demons are mine to slay. My burdens are mine to carry. I’ve never been a knight in shining armor. More like a savage in dusty timbs condemned to spend my existence taking lives. Therefore, the last thing I want to do is save hers even if my family dictates I’m the best man for the job. Then again, only God judges who goes to heaven and hell and maybe this could tip the scale in my favor. But could giving into temptation erase this good deed? She is a vixen after all, testing my patience and my will.
He doesn’t think I deserve his help and honestly, I don’t blame him. He doesn’t like that I’m not from his world and truthfully, he’s right. He’s the only Crowne I didn’t want to help me and yet, he’s exactly who I got. While his eyes may seem murderous, there’s something else there too. Something he doesn’t want me to see. He’s warned me to leave him alone and I listen… Until I don’t.
Please Note: Jedidiah’s Crowning Glory contains sex, violence, and profanity. Before reading this story, it is recommended that you check out the first books in Crowne Legacy.

Flinging All Spring: Book Three of Sag Harbor Black Romances by Lula White
“Give. It. To me,” Adella demanded now. As she leaned forward, sticking out her palm to receive it, she smelled liquor on Desmond.
“No.” Ignoring her request, Desmond held the scarf over the stair banister.
Adella’s eyes flapped in horror as it left his fingers, and sailed away from them, to the first floor below. Her nappy hair, unkempt and wild, was exposed. And now she felt naked, even as her fist clinched her robe across her throat.
Desmond sucked his lips, and the pupils of his eyes became airplane engines flying toward her. “Aside from lying about how you meet men, and concealing your natural hair, what else do you hide from the rest of the world?”
“None of your business. You had no right to do that.”
“In three days, you’re going to be my wife. You don’t think I have a right to know what’s really under there?”
Her face still clutching her silk robe against the hollow of her throat, she glared at him. “No.”
Return to the hotbed of riches, rivalries and romance in the Black Hamptons.

When his family demands that he marry a bourgeoisie woman he’s never met, he does something despicable that doesn’t win him any fans in Sag Harbor.
Now, to protect the future of their families, these two strangers must not only share a boardroom, and a house, but a bed.
A disastrous prison sentence? Or will Desmond tap Adella’s secret garden this spring?
