Title: 
Holy Rollers

Looking for Love . . .

Lifelong friends Coco, Nita, and Tia have spent years looking for love in the arms of flashy pro athletes, hoping to land a baller but ending up with a stream of failed relationships. The beautiful and demure Coco has endured years of physical abuse from her boyfriend, Sonny, while Tia, a single mother, has dated her fair share of cheaters and yearns for a stable companion who will be a father figure to her son. And feisty, seductive Nita is tired of being the million-dollar mistress and wants to settle down—ifshe can find someone worth coming home to.

Changing the Game . . .

Now that the women are approaching thirty, they’re finding it harder than ever to compete with the pro groupies. Determined to change the game and find some worthwhile men, Tia hatches an outrageous plan. Soon the trio is "holy rolling," masquerading as God-fearing churchgoers at a local conference for young ministers in the hopes of snagging a prominent pastor. But will their big gamble pay off? Men of the cloth are still just men, after all. As the three friends meet their potential life partners, they will have to decide how far they want to take their holy rollers scheme—each risking heartbreak while taking a chance on finding a reliable, responsible man to love and cherish, flaws and all.

Title: 
Samson

Samson Taylor has just been installed as assistant pastor at a thriving North Carolina church. He's a man of God—and most definitely no saint. Handsome and charismatic, Samson is controlled by his lust for beautiful women, a weakness that stirs up trouble, heartache, betrayal, and damaging rumors—and soon costs him his marriage, his best friendship, and even his new job. Samson loves God and tries harder than ever to keep his temptations in check. Then he meets Delinda. . . .

Beautiful, irresistibly sexy, and married to a famous NBA star, Delinda has Samson head-over-heels in love . . . in a dangerous affair that leads to a physical confrontation with Delinda's husband.

Now, the disgraced pastor begins a journey he could never have anticipated, where his heart is now his guide—not a heart of lust, but of new wisdom and a new kind of seeing. God will forgive Samson's past—but will Samson himself be able to let go of bitterness and regret, and find a new light in his life?

Inspired by the Biblical tale of Samson and Delilah, Jacquelin Thomas powerfully portrays a modern-day pastor's dance with earthly desires . . . and the faith that made him whole. Read more about S2S B2B: Samson

She tries to make herself believe she’s in a good thing with Lloyd, but the longer they stay together, the more it looks like this is one dangerous dude. As she tries to break free, she takes solace in the Lord, fully trusting that He will finally restore peace in her life—even if what He provides isn’t quite what she wanted.

One of Richmond, Virginia's hottest, most successful women, Loraine Farrow is finally putting the relationship drama behind her. There's nothing she wants more than to settle down with her husband, Leon, and focus on her marriage. Trouble is, her ex-lover, Michael, isn't about to let her go so easily.

But things aren't so simple with Leon either. He's dealing with painful issues from his childhood - and some of them are starting to surface in the bedroom. Leon's seeing a therapist, but what he's uncovering could destroy their marriage for good-unless Michael does it first.

The short time Michael spent with Loraine was the happiest he's ever known, and he-s fired up about winning her back - until he discovers a secret Leon's been hiding. Now he's faced with a wrenching choice: either sacrifice what he wants most, or cause the woman he loves unbearable heartbreak.
