Title: 
Fortune & Fame

Jasmine Cox Larson Bush and Rachel Jackson Adams have been through a lot together—from fighting for their husbands to become the head of the American Baptist Coalition to getting mixed up in a terrible murder. Now the frenemies have found themselves the stars of First Ladies, a muchanticipated new reality television show.

Jasmine balks at the idea of airing her dirty laundry on national TV, but Rachel sees it as the perfect opportunity to take her brand to the next level. And if Rachel is in, so is Jasmine. All the cast members are women of God—how much drama can there be?

Rachel and Jasmine know their own pasts are murky, but they’ll seem like choir girls when the secrets and sins of the others come to light. The two will once again have to form an unholy alliance to go up against these so-called Godly women who see the show as their chance to take them down—at any cost.

Title: 
Family Business 2

In his typical jaw-dropping fashion, Carl Weber returns with part 2 to his New York Times bestselling series The Family Business. He's brought along a friend in bestselling author Treasure Hernandez and together they've added more drama and new family member's to the mix.

Welcome to the world of Duncans. By day they are upstanding citizens running one of New York's most respected car dealerships; but by night, they're criminals who control most of the East Coast drug traffic. No matter whether they're on their day or night jobs, one thing is true about the Duncan's: there is never a dull moment to be found.

Baby momma drama has taken over the Duncan clan as a mad scramble ensues to find out who has fathered the Duncan sisters' new babies. Meanwhile, Orlando Duncan, the family's new CEO and a man with his own baby momma problems, has just developed a new product that may make the millionaire Duncans into billionaires. Orlando only has one obstacle in front of him, and it's not law enforcement or one his family's many rivals: it's his mother, and she may be his most formable opponent to date, because she's making the family take sides.

Can a civil war within the Duncan family be averted before it tears them apart? Read more about S2SB2B: Family Business

Must a young woman choose between her commitment to her marriage. . .and to God?

Brianna was ten years old when she first met twenty-five year old David R. Shepherd, a devout and gifted gospel recording artist who would ultimately become world renowned megastar, King d.Avid. He left an impression on Brianna she would never forget. And they were destined to meet again. . .

Title: 
Come Sunday Morning

Hezekiah T. Cleveland is the young, handsome, and charismatic pastor of the mega church New Testament Cathedral in Los Angeles. He is married to Reverend Samantha Cleveland, a beautiful, sensuous, ambitious, and equally charismatic minister. Samantha is the power behind Hezekiah and New Testament Cathedral. She runs the church and their national television ministry from behind the scenes with a firm, and sometimes cruel, hand. Together they are building a new 25,000 seat mega church.

Hezekiah meets a handsome and passionate social worker named Danny St. John, and the two men fall in love. As they struggle to keep their relationship a secret, Hezekiah alone grapples with the conflict between his religious convictions and his love for a man. Hezekiah comes to the conclusion that he must choose between Danny and his wife.

Samantha has grown bitter and resentful of living in Hezekiah's shadow. She views him as the man who stands between her and the absolute power she desperately craves. She decides to take over the New Testament Cathedral and rid herself of Hezekiah permanently. She seduces and conspires with Hezekiah's nemesis, Reverend Willie Mitchell. Together they conclude that Hezekiah must be killed.

During the Sunday morning sermon in which Hezekiah is about to reveal the double life that he has been living, a shot rings out in the cavernous New Testament Cathedral sanctuary. Hezekiah is killed in front of a live television audience and the shocked members of his congregation. During the pandemonium, Samantha Cleveland skillfully portrays the role of a shocked, frightened, and bereaved wife.

Samantha is installed as the Pastor of New Testament Cathedral after much behind the scenes manipulations. She is praised and embraced by the congregation members as a selfless, God fearing woman who, despite her tragic loss and through her grief, places the good of the ministry and the spiritual well-being of those in need before her own. How long will she be able to carry on this charade? Read more about Come Sunday Morning

House Divided

 

A House Divided:

Life is close to perfect for the Reverend Curtis Black and his wife, Charlotte—except their son Matthew and his girlfriend, Racquel, are about to become parents at the tender age of eighteen. Even though Curtis and Charlotte wish Matthew could focus on Harvard instead of fatherhood, they are determined to welcome their new grandson with open arms. But for Charlotte, welcoming her future in-laws is another story. Try as she might, Charlotte can't stand Racquel's mother, Vanessa—and the feeling appears to be mutual.

When the tension between Charlotte and Vanessa finally erupts, the stress sends an already-fragile Racquel into early labor. Everyone is quick to blame Charlotte, including Matthew and Curtis. Of course, this infuriates Charlotte—the idea that her husband would side with someone else—and it strains the relationship she and Curtis have only recently been able to repair. Her one ally, though, is Racquel's father, but that brings problems of its own.

While Charlotte schemes against Vanessa, Curtis is consumed with his own concerns about Deliverance Outreach. A mysterious figure from his past has been sending Curtis cryptic messages threatening to take away Curtis's coveted position as senior pastor and destroy everything he has worked so hard for. But who could hate Curtis that much? And how can he fight an enemy he can't even name?

Times of trouble are descending upon the Black family in more ways than one. Will they be able to overcome their challenges and stand together against someone who could take it all away? Or is the Black family finally out of miracles? Read more about S2SB2B: House Divided

The Perfect Marriage

ADDICTION. DECEPTION.
PRETTY PICTURES HIDE UGLY SECRETS.

Denise and Derrek Shaw are the perfect American couple. Happily married for fifteen years, they have a wonderful daughter, Mackenzie, successful careers, and a beautiful home in a posh Chicago suburb. They are attractive, respected . . . and hiding a shocking secret: a dangerous addiction to drugs.

It started innocently enough. Denise occasionally used prescription drugs to help her deal with the long hours and demanding nature of her job. Derrek, also under pressure at work, began using cocaine socially with some of his colleagues.

They can quit whenever they want to. At least, that's what Denise would like to believe . . .

As her job becomes more stressful, Denise can no longer get through the day without a fix. Derrek realizes his harmless habit has become anything but, and desperately wants to get clean. However, his attempts are derailed when there is a sudden family tragedy. Once soul mates, now this husband and wife are quickly losing the immense love that had been the cornerstone of their marriage. With her parents spiraling out of control, Mackenzie makes an unexpected move to take matters into her own hands. Is her sacrifice too late-or is there still hope? Is there a final chance to save the Shaw family? Read more about S2SB2B: The Perfect Marriage

Meet Darryl Graham, or as his new neighbors call him, The Man in 3B. Darryl's new to the Jamaica, Queens building, but from day one he's made quite an impression on his neighbors. He has made it very clear he greatly values his privacy, but he is the man every woman wants and every man wants to be, so inquiring minds want to know.

Meet Darryl Graham, or as his neighbors call him . . .

From his down-to-earth personality to his extreme attractiveness to his undeniable swag, Darryl is the man every woman wants and every man wants to be. Darryl is quickly welcomed into the building and immediately becomes a part of each of the tenants' lives.

Connie, an overweight and unhappy wife, turns to Darryl for help losing weight, hoping to try and fix her crumbling marriage. But when Darryl starts making Connie feel beautiful again, she questions whether or not her marriage is worth saving. Benny, a spoiled teenager, looks up to Darryl as a role model. When an unexpected event occurs, Benny is left questioning everything he's ever known. Krystal, Darryl's first love, wants to make things work with her current boyfriend. Yet, having Darryl back in her life sends her happy home spiraling out of control. And, last but not least, Avery, Connie's husband, doesn't care about anyone or anything when a financial opportunity comes his way-that is, until he notices how much time his wife is spending with their new neighbor.

Everything seems to be going well, until someone is murdered, and everyone becomes a prime suspect. Read more about S2SB2B: Man In 3B

Title: 
When Baldwin Loved Brenden

A whole decade has passed since Baldwin, Brenden, Bria, and Christopher last saw each other. In college, they were a close-knit circle of friends who called themselves The Group--until an unfortunate set of circumstances placed their friendship in jeopardy. They went their separate ways after graduation, never looking back, and never expecting to see each other again.

Now they are reunited in a small North Carolina town to attend the funeral of one of their own. Rihanna was always the peacemaker of the group, so it's almost fitting that it's at her funeral that The Group will have to confront their past issues. Baldwin, the romantic, Brenden, the do-gooder, Bria, the wild child, and Christopher, the pretty boy, are all about to learn some truths about each other and about themselves over a few unforgettable and life-changing days. Secrets will be revealed, past hurts exposed, tears shed, and laugher shared, all in the name of friendship and love.

Electa Rome Parks, bestselling author of Diary of a Stalker, asks the question, Can anything truly tear apart real friendship and love? Read more about S2SB2B: When Baldwin Loved Brenden
