Family Reunion—In the Wisdom of the Ancestors Series



DESCRIPTION :: READ EXCERPT
Tina Justice burst into the club like she owned the joint. Heads quickly turned and murmurs rose amid lively applause. Newspaper photographers and reporters scurried ahead of her, frantically snapping pictures and shouting questions while her security team cleared the way. She ignored it all.

Restaurant patrons jumped to their feet, applauding in roof-raising adulation and admiration of her, sounding like hundreds of geese rising from a lake, noisily squawking and honking, wings loudly beating the air. One would have thought she was giving out thousand-dollar bills for all the attention focused on her. Yet, no one could deny that she looked like a cool million, freshly minted in her money-green, shimmering sheath.

Initially, businessman Nico Collins thought all of the hoopla was over the very popular male matinee idol and heartthrob escorting her for the evening. The actor had just won best male actor for his role in the latest film her company, Sweet Justice Productions, released. However, the crowd quickly disabused Nico of that notion when they started chanting "Sweet Justice" in a rhythmic rendition of the title song from the soundtrack of her blockbuster movie.

Neither Tina nor Nico could have predicted how their lives would crash together and cause cataclysmic sparks to fly. When two billionaire captains of industry collide, could both survive the experience.

Cheryl Lawrence-Hardy was a stunningly beautiful, successful partner in a prestigious Washington, DC law firm who married a handsome university professor. She was admired by her peers and adored by her family and friends. People thought that she had everything a woman could want, but there was one thing she wanted above all else, a child or children of her own. That her husband did not share her desire for a family was a huge problem in their new marriage.

Peter Brock, Cheryl’s life-long friend, neighbor and copartner in her law firm, was also dealing with a less than perfect marriage. Although they had known each other since childhood and knew most things about each other’s lives, the two friends could not share their concerns about their spouses, until the unthinkable happened. Over time, they realized that their feelings for each other had grown into much more than friendship. Their efforts to create new lives with each other led to unexpected twists and turns and danger.

DESCRIPTION :: READ EXCERPT
It was a long, hard fought battle for Judge Kristen Catherine Bryant to be appointed by the President of the United States to a judgeship on the DC Circuit Federal Court of Appeals. She endured Congressional interrogations, press and news media interviews, speaking engagements, and grips and grins with intestinal fortitude and no little amount of patience and guile. That was all now behind her. She had a month to decompress before she had to move from Chicago, Illinois, to Washington, DC, to assume her new post. A little vacation to a private Polynesian Island, where no one knew her, was the perfect getaway. What she didn't want was to share her two-bedroom, two bath luxury suite with a complete stranger; a man she had never met. Especially dangerous was what this liaison would do to her sterling reputation if a whiff of this got to the media and the scandal that would ensue. Her highly-coveted judgeship could be over before it started.

International attorney Thomas Ashton Marshall, III, was highly sought after when big clients wanted to win. His Marshall and Marshall, Portland, Oregon, law offices were a place he rarely visited as were the courts in the US. After winning his most recent case and learning that an appeal had been filed, the media never let up dogging his tracks. He sought a little privacy and to rest and relax at the Plaza de Masquerada, the place of masks, where his identity never needs to be revealed. What happens at the Plaza stays at the Plaza. That is until he was forced to spend nearly a month with his unintentional suitemate and then a week of passion before she disappears. He refused to give up looking for the woman he only knew as KC. Cinderella she wasn't, but if the shoe fit . . .

Judge Bryant would never forget Ash even in the face of her former fiancé's sudden and unexpected hidden agenda for wanting them back together. That was bad enough, but on her first day on the bench as a newly appointed federal judge, the bottom dropped out of her world when her former fiancé stood for the plaintiff and her secret lover stood for the defense in her courtroom.

Capri McAllister took her law degree and career into her hands and carved out a business as a lobbyist in the tough, competitive concrete jungle of Washington, DC's Capitol Hill often cut-throat society. She was young, not yet thirty, but she was made of stern stuff. She loves her multicultural family fiercely, but she would not crumble under someone's attempt to intimidate her into dropping certain clients even if it meant disgracing her family's good name.

Aerospace engineer and UCLA professor, Dr. Tate Kennedy, didn't want for much except to see his dream of a home in outer space become a reality. With his genius-level IQ, he need only convince the US Congress to properly fund his SPACEHOME project and to be among the first to launch into space to lay the foundation for future generations to build on. His childhood friend, Capri, using her talents as a lobbyist, could be the link he needed to get the Congress and the President of the United States to step up and fund his project.

When Capri and Tate team up, their efforts are hindered by elements who have deep pockets and a hidden agenda; one that may be more dangerous and deadly than a space shuttle launch.

Gregory Clayton Alexander, tagged "Alexander the Great" by the sports and news media, has announced his retirement from professional basketball at age twenty-nine. No one, except his family, understands why he wants to quit while at the top of his superlative career. Still, he's been playing the game for more than half his life. After winning Olympic Gold twice, three NBA championship rings, and seven years playing more than eighty professional games a season, he's ready to trade his NBA highlights to begin using the MBA he worked to achieve. He and his friends have formed Compliant Trading and Investment, a Wall Street brokerage house, banking institution, and member of the New York stock exchange. Yet, though highly successful, he has no one special in his life.

Angelique Teresa Menendez-Gaza is the toast of the beauty and fashion industries and has enjoyed an active acting career in film as much as she has her demanding modeling career. At nearly twenty-one years of age, she's ready to take on a different challenge and open Angelique's Place, an upscale restaurant and The Run Way, an exclusive night club in the heart of New York City, one of the toughest markets for new eateries and clubs. She spent several years between modeling and acting gigs studying at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris, France, perfecting her new craft. Now she has the financial resources and is making the time to share her passion for cooking with the world just as she did her acting and modeling careers.

Gregory and Angelique are long-time platonic friends. She has long been in love with him, but, for Gregory, the age difference between them always stood in the way. That is until he accidently discovers her life and safety are at risk. He puts everything on the line to protect her and risks losing his heart to her in the process. Angelique is the little sister of his heart; but could she also be the woman of his dreams. They must survive this threat to explore the potential for a future together.

DESCRIPTION :: READ EXCERPT
What is a southern, gentile, society lady of impeccable taste, breeding, and education to do when her husband of nearly twenty years announces he is divorcing her on the day they deliver their youngest son to college? Loretta Hill Mason, Head Mistress of the Columbia Academy in South Carolina, did not see her husband’s declaration coming and had no idea what she should do next. She couldn’t just emulate Miss Scarlet and say “Fiddly dee, I’ll think about it tomorrow.” Her soon-to-be ex-husband, Randolph, gave her a few weeks to clear her belongings out of the home she made into a show place once featured in Southern Living, listed on the Fabulous Gardens Tour, and envied by their circle of high-society friends and relations. Now she didn’t even have a bank account or credit card in her own name or any other resources to fall back on.

Multi-billionaire Justin W. McCoy learned the hard way from the background of a meager beginning to becoming a titan in the hotel industry. Though he stumbled a few times along the way with an ill-fated marriage, he is now happily divorced, and his teenaged daughter is the brightest spot in his life. Business is good and would be better when he closes the deal to acquire the Delaware Group’s hotel chain. That acquisition would make McCoy Hotels, Resorts and Conference Centers one of the top ten travel industry chains in the world. Yet it could come with a dangerous price tag. A pilgrimage to the first resort he ever purchased suddenly reunites him with a woman he fell in love with from afar over twenty years earlier, but had never met. Tagged with the nickname, The Rejuvenator in the hotel industry, he never lets an opportunity slip through his fingers in business and he won’t let it happen in his private life this time. Fate is a fickle finger when the Delaware Group’s criminal syndicate wants more than a sale of their hotels to McCoy Enterprises and they will stop at nothing, even involving Justin’s daughter, Jessica, and anyone else they can use to their advantage, to get what they want. Justin gambles it all to save his business from the criminal element, win his safety, and the safety of the ones he holds most dear, including Loretta.

Wesley Greenfield, aka Ice or the Iceman, a self-professed “corner boy” has no intention of stepping up to Dr. Rosalyn Hunter, his high-school heart throb, even though she has stepped up to help him protect three abandoned neighborhood kids. As the principal of the local elementary school, in his view, she ranks too far above his lowly position as the owner and operator of a struggling community center.

Ice had to grow up fast when, at nineteen, someone shot and killed his only living parent. All he has now are the childhood friends who share his dreams of a better life and help run his center. Though he would relish the opportunity to be with Rosalyn, he is trying to build a future without her as best he can in his old inner-city neighborhood.

Dr. Rosalyn Hunter is not about to let an opportunity to be with the man she cares so deeply for slip through her fingers. She is bound and determined to prove to Ice that her doctorate and status in life are no barriers to the intimate relationship she has long wanted to have with him since their high school days. To save the three minor children, they must move in together and join forces. Will that be enough to prove to Wesley that he and Rosalyn aren’t walking on uneven ground or will he continue to believe that they are walking on shaky ground?

DESCRIPTION :: READ EXCERPT
Abandoned at birth and a loner all her life, Dakota Sinclair had no ties, no history, and maybe no future, which made her an ideal asset for the super-secret, world, security organization that didn't even have the benefit of an acronym. Being a superb triathlete, multilingual, and of African American and Native American ancestry made her an invaluable resource , as she could infiltrate groups in the Middle East, North Africa, Central or South America or any country of color. Although skilled in a thousand ways to silently kill or capture, she never learned how to protect herself from a man like Ambassador Jefferson Alden Logan.

Jefferson Logan often had the weight of the world on his broad shoulders, and an unfaithful and bipolar wife who made him pay dearly for his dedication to duty. What he did not need now was more grief from his wife's rich and powerful family over the custody of his three, young sons. Even less attractive was a challenge from a woman he could neither possess nor control. Not getting what he wanted and needed in his private life was rare...and this was definitely one of those times when he would stop at nothing to have the elusive and mysterious Dakota Sinclair.

A plot to capture and kill the Ambassador involved the safety of people both Dakota and Jefferson held dear.

When the tall, tan, tantalizing Texan strode into her brother's business office with his bodyguards like he owned the joint, Kelley Baylor didn't know him from a can of paint. He cast his obsidian gaze on her like she was on the menu of his favorite five-star restaurant and today's special seven-course meal complete from soup to nuts. At nearly forty, she instinctively knew that men like him came packaged with a capitol "D" for Dangerous. Still, she would do anything for her younger brother and fight by his side to save Baylor Construction no matter what it took.

Jake Hawkins hadn't decided whether he would start a hostile takeover of the Baylor Construction Company or save it from others who were plotting something far worse. His daughter and grandsons' happiness was at risk in this high-stakes game of corporate raiding. It only took one look at the
brown-eyed beauty, Kelley Baylor, to seal the deal for him. She led him on a merry chase, but he was biding his time, letting her have her head until she ran out of real estate to run. Then he would have the woman and her brother's company in his stable, lock, stock and barrel.

DESCRIPTION :: READ EXCERPT
Otis Redding probably said it best in his rendition of “If Loving You Is Wrong, I Don’t Want To Be Right.” An affair between two married people can sometimes be more, mean more than just sex and infidelity. It can mean everything to two love-starved people.

Former Texas beauty queen, JaiHonnah Reise Chapman, of African and Native American ancestry is finally moving back to the United States after studying abroad for the last four years and completing her doctorates in architecture and structural engineering at Arcadia Laboratories, Politecnico di Milano, Italy. A new career opportunity awaits her in Washington, D.C., away from her wealthy, powerful, and manipulative father, Jake Hawkins, and the brutal man she married, international financier, Calvin Chapman. The last thing she needs or wants at the beginning of her professional life is to have An Unguarded Moment with another woman's husband, her new boss.

J. Roderick Baylor, known as the sports icon JRock, had shed the highlights of his illustrious, professional basketball career, and the lowlights of his disastrous marriage to Monique, a would-be starlet. Now he has his twin, five-year-old daughters, Shelly and Shelby, a highly successful construction and development business and loving, supportive family and friends around with which to build a new life. Little did he know that an illicit affair with another man's wife, his new employee, had the power to refurbish the torn parts of his life and erect a monument to the power of love.

In Summer County, South Carolina, Satarah Whitfield, head Emergency Room nurse, battles to save the lives of countless accident victims of a record-breaking blizzard. She did not have time to think about her husband's and sister's betrayal when they absconded with every dime she had and the only family car leaving their twin boys behind for her to raise. For one patient, a young boy whose name she did not even know, she risks her career to save his life by performing an unauthorized surgery that, if it goes wrong, could land her in prison. She only hopes that, if her own missing son needed extreme measures taken to save his life, someone would step up to save him.

In Richmond, Virginia, firefighter, Deputy Battalion Chief, Douglas Johnson, is battling to save his career after giving testimony in court against his fire department for malfeasants. That would be enough pressure to contend with, but his young, defiant adopted son is driving him to distraction with his preteen angst. If Doug's wife hadn't committed suicide, perhaps he would not feel like throwing in the towel. When the chips were down, neither Satarah nor Douglas have been quitters. So when Douglas learns that his boy was in a near fatal school bus accident on his way to Walt Disney World, a trip that Douglas knew nothing about, his fear for his son's life chases him to a South Carolina community he has never heard of and to a woman the likes of which he had never met. When these two bruised, but no broken people come together, they battle together to save their future.

DESCRIPTION :: READ EXCERPT

US Air Force Colonel Benjamin "Benny" Alexander has been raising his daughter alone while continuing to search for the woman they both love, US Navy Lieutenant Stacy Greene. She has been deployed and the fact that no one in the Pentagon will reveal her mission to him gives him reason to suspect that where ever she has been is dangerous to her life. His search will lead him from Tokyo, Japan, to the Blue Ridge Mountains around Asheville, North Carolina. He's on a mission of his own: to find the mother of their child and the woman he loves more than his next breath.

Vivian Alexander, one of Benny's younger sisters, and her law school cohorts and housemates are on a parallel mission without realizing that they are putting their lives at risk. Vivian has other issues to resolve that for her may also be life altering. While on a romantic rendezvous on one of the secluded islands of Bimini, she is uncharacteristically caught in a prism of emotions, commitments, and obligations. Only her family's support can see her through her crises of conscious.

The Alexander family of Summer County, South Carolina, is richly steeped in their ancestral traditions and embrace life living it to the fullest. The strength and selflessness of the family links them together as tightly as the gold chain that each family member wears. Their relationships with others in their extended family promise that what threatens one will be faced by all. The bonds that hold them together are strong, but the challenges that they face may be stronger.

DESCRIPTION :: READ EXCERPT

Kenneth Alexander should have every reason to be happy. He heads his very prosperous electronics and telecommunications business and he has just married the woman of his dreams and the love of his life, JeNelle Towson. While on their Alaskan honeymoon, Kenneth learns that they have every reason to be concerned about a vengeful, narcissistic man, who threatens their happy-ever-after life. Upon the newlyweds return to their Santa Barbara, California, home Kenneth is summoned to a top-secret meeting with the President of the United States. Not only is national security at stake, but also world defense if Kenneth refuses to complete a project. Kenneth soon discovers that the dangers are more pervasive than originally thought.

His brother, Benjamin, a US Air Force jet fighter pilot, is about to lose the one woman he didn't realize that he loved.

As if the situation couldn't be worse, their sister, Vivian, an attorney who works on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC, and her billionaire husband are intricately involved in the classified project. Little do the siblings know that all of the events causing eruptions in their lives have the same source. The dangers involve not only immediate family, but also lead close friends to journey as far away as Spain and as close as the Navajo Nation of New Mexico before it's too late.

While Kenneth sorts through the pitfalls, aid comes from an unsuspected source. The government operative holds the key to the deployment of the project through a woman who is coming to mean more to him than is comfortable for a man in his covert line of work. Though Oceanographer, Dr. Cecil Jordon's invention, ROVERS, was designed as a weather detection system, it is the link that creates a world-wide protection grid. It takes the Alexander family and friends to try to stop a sadistic multi-billionaire from wreaking havoc on the world's electronic systems.

DESCRIPTION :: READ EXCERPT

Law school student Vivian Lynn Alexander could no longer fight the undeniable truth that she had to end her three-year love affair with her college sweetheart, Carlton Andrews, to have the career as a lawyer she dreamed about. Nor could she deny a growing interracial passion that she felt for former basketball icon Chuck Montgomery—that is, until she met his best friend, Derrick “Dunk and Jam” Jackson, who was an even bigger star than Chuck. Both medical doctors now, Chuck and Derrick find that they have no medical skills to keep them both from falling hard for the attractive, young Georgetown Law student.

Kenneth and Benjamin Alexander are brothers and best friends, but as different as night and day. Kenneth, the older, the cool, calm and collected President of his San Francisco-based telecommunications company, and Benjamin, the dashing young US Air Force jet fighter pilot, stationed in San Diego. Yet they came to the same conclusion: They were both falling in love with the same woman—the beautiful and alluring JeNelle Towson, owner of INSIGHTS, a Santa Barbara emporium of style and grace.

Despite their individual and desperate problems, the three of five Alexander siblings rally at perilous risk to themselves and others they care about when everything is on the line and the weight on all of them is the greatest. Two is company, but three is a family.
