Afterburn
AFTERBURN

Author:Zane

In the latest romantic romp from New York Times bestselling author Zane, two hapless lovers get lost in a dating game gone awry.
When Washington, D.C., chiropractor Yardley Brown goes to his local bank, it isn't only to make deposits into his account. He has long since accrued some interest in Rayne Waters, a bank employee who's too beautiful to be true -- and too beautiful to be single. At least that's what Yardley believes, which is why he has never approached her.
Little does he know that Rayne is anything but taken. Not for want of trying, of course. But after barely surviving a dating disaster with her hairdresser's brother and then falling for a member of her church band who, it turns out, is celibate, she's on the verge of giving up. That is, until Yardley -- discouraged by his own slew of dead-end romances -- finally works up the courage to give her a try.
The true craziness, however, is just beginning, thanks to a cast of characters who seem bent on botching the young couple's relationship.
There's Rayne's erratic mother, who constantly boasts about being a "good whore"; Yardley's playboy buddies, always trolling for sex; and, worst of all, past lovers who make a habit of popping up and ruining things as only old flames (or previous mistakes) can. Weaving the carnal and the comical in true Zane fashion, Rayne and Yardley's struggle to find love in a world gone mad is a timeless talk about everything that can go wrong in the dating game -- and a few things that can go right.

Undercover
UNDERCOVER

Author:Laurinda D. Brown

Nothing is ever what it seems. A "rehabilitated" drag queen, shunned by his lover, marries his best friend from high school. For years the couple has the ideal life until financial problems force the husband to take a second job that ultimately leads back to his old way of life. His wife is oblivious to his activities, but his sister-in-law, when introduced to him at the wedding reception, recalls seeing him at the nightclub performing as "Miss Nay". And that is when the drama begins. Alternating between Memphis, TN and Paris, France, UnderCover is two stories told in one book from the imagination of a writer who feels the reader should be educated as well as entertained. The reader learns about AIDS, it causes and transmission, how it affects children and how, at its onset, can be confused for other illnesses. Through this story the reader also witnesses the consequences of keeping secrets and living life on the DL (down-low) while peering into the lives of people viewed as real in spite of the fact that they are merely characters in the novel.
UnderCover is a story for all readers regardless of race, profession or sexual orientation.

Mob
MOB

Author:Roy Glenn

Who says crime doesn't pay? Because it sure does for Travis Burns. He's the leader of a well organized robbing crew known only as MOB and he and his crew are living the good life. They target banks, supermarkets, jewelers, and anything else that they can hit quick and come away with a large return for their investment. They are all college graduates and extremely disciplined. In another life, another time, this would have been their last career choice, yet each is set with their own axe to grind with the system. They are not like most successful criminals in the underworld - they don't wear flashy jewelery, don't drive expensive cars and they certainly try not to attract the attention of the police. Operating under the protection of Mike Black's criminal organization, Travis and his crew live by rules that have earned them a small fortune. But things change when Travis meets Me'shelle Lawrence...now he must choose between his love for Me'shelle and his loyalty to his crew.

I'll Find a Way or Make One
I'LL FIND A WAY OR MAKE ONE

Author:Dwayne Ashley, Juan Williams

From Juan Williams, author of Eyes on the Prize, and the Thurgood Marshall Scholarship Fund comes a must-have gift book and definitive resource that explores the historical, social, and cultural importance of America's 107 historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs).
HBCUs have graduated such illustrious leaders as Oprah Winfrey, Thurgood Marshall, Spike Lee, W. E. B. DuBois, Debbie Allen, Alain Locke, Samuel L. Jackson, and Nikki Giovanni. This commemorative illustrated gift book is filled with photographs, historical narrative, personal memoir, archival and contemporary material, and anecdotal and resource information. It is the first of its kind -- a groundbreaking retrospective that explores the dramatic development and history of America's historically black colleges and universities.
Stories abound about the abolition of slavery. However, lesser known are the efforts -- both prior to and after the Civil War -- of African American and white abolitionists banding together to formally educate newly freed slaves. Through the tireless work of government organizations, black churches, missionary groups, and philanthropists, HBCUs were established. The tales of how these schools were created and of the individuals who are linked to the schools' histories are extraordinarily rich -- and sometimes controversial. In an unprecedented salute to America's 107 historically black colleges and universities, I'll Find a Way or Make One chronicles the formation of the black middle class, the history of education in the African American community, and some of the most important events of African Americana and American history.
