All I Ever Did Was Love a Man

Author:Sharon Denise Allison-Ottey

An African American woman's singular search for grace and meaning after learning she has AIDS
No one said being a single mother was easy, but, after some difficult years, Sabrena Collins seemed to finally have it together. She had a good-paying job, two beautiful daughters who were growing up with love and security, and a wonderful friend who was more like the sister she never had. She even had a man in her life who was everything her ex-husband was not: kind, generous and caring.
Everything seemed perfect-except for one thing. Steve said he loves her, but he was unreliable. There was more than one night when Sabrena would lie in bed, waiting for the phone to ring? alone and crying silent tears.
But when Sabrena was in his arms and he looked at her with his melt-on-the-spot chocolate brown eyes, all the problems, the sleepless nights, the cold dinners, all of that was forgotten.
And then, suddenly, Sabrena?s world was turned upside down by a simple visit that led her on a frightening and unfamiliar path, that led her to a truth passion and words of love could not erase, a truth that would change her life forever. A truth that would test her faith, her courage, her strength, and above all else, her love?
Exploring the fictional life of an African-American woman who learns the hard way about love and strength after developing AIDS, this absorbing narrative moves from the protagonist's pedestrian plight as a single mom with both responsibility and aspirations to her new life?fraught with emotion, searing physical pain, and surprising moments of joy. While showing that hope can, and must, thrive amid the most challenging circumstances, the story represents a woman learning to keep moving forward despite a radically new set of challenges, and learning to once again trust herself, and her lovers, as she moves forward. Concluding with a surprise twist, this entertaining and realistic novel goes on to include a special section on living with HIV/AIDS, containing all the information readers need to know to protect themselves.

Sharon Denise Allison-Ottey is a frequently requested and dynamic speaker and has appeared on numerous television and radio shows. She has been interviewed and/or cited by a host of media venues, including USA Today, The Wall Street Journal, Black Entertainment Television (BET, Redbook, Jet, Heart and Soul, Essence, and Gospel Today, to name a few.

Sex-Starved Marriage

The Couple's Guide to Understanding Mismatched Sexual Desire and Boosting Their Marriage Libido
Author:Michele Weiner-Davis

It is estimated that one of every three married couples struggles with problems associated with mismatched sexual desire. Do you? If you want to stop fighting about sex and revitalize your intimate connection with your spouse, then you need this book. But The Sex-Starved Marriage is not just another book explaining the reasons you or your spouse might not be in the mood for sex. Bestselling author Michele Weiner Davis will help you understand why being complacent or bitter about ho-hum sex might cost you your marriage, and with her acclaimed psychobabble-free, straight-shooting advice, she'll show you how to bring the spark back into your bedroom and into your relationship.
Because relationship expert Weiner Davis is convinced that feeling sexy is a two-person job, she looks at the problem of — and the solution to — low sexual desire from a couple's perspective. Whether you're someone whose passion has faded or someone who's been hungering for touch, you'll learn life-altering lessons about bridging the desire gap and restoring intimacy and friendship to your marriage. And because Weiner Davis knows that one spouse is often more motivated than the other to work on a relationship, she offers creative ways to inspire your partner to change.

Ties that Bind

Author:Electa Rome Parks

What's love got to do with it? What's love but a second hand emotion? Tina Turner hit it right on the money with that song. I can picture her now sashaying across the stage with those long legs and wild, sexy hair flying all over the place as she bellows out those lyrics straight from the heart. Lord knows, she could be the spokeswoman for that song because being married to Ike was no walk through the daisies.
It's amazing how when we are young and haven't experienced life yet, songs are listened to for the beat and the rhythm. It's only later, when we are older and wiser, that we listen to and relate to the lyrics behind the songs. We can relate because we have been there and done that.
Reflecting back on the last few turbulent months of my life, I realize I have changed, really I had no choice but to change, from a na?, young woman, who thought she knew it all, into a mature, wiser woman. You see, I have learned that life has a way of teaching us hard lessons about love. And believe me, there are many lessons to be taught, lessons learned only by living them. You have to go through them and survive to truly understand.
Sometimes, the only way is to live life, learn from our mistakes and move on. Unfortunately, when it comes to love, for a lot of us, it takes a while longer to get to that moving on stage. A lot of us have to be taught the lesson over and over again before we finally get it. Women, throughout history, have played the fool for love, and you know what, we probably always will. It has been drilled into us from birth that to be truly happy we need a man in our life and in our beds. I'm sure I can get some amens to that.

Sex Chronicles II


Zane's erotic short stories have captivated the minds of both sexes and all races. The Sex Chronicles: Shattering the Myth did exactly what its title implies -- exploded the myth that men are more sexual in nature than women, and that African-American women in particular are inhibited compared to their female counterparts of other cultures. Her audience is growing by leaps and bounds, nurtured by her Internet site and her previous bestselling titles, including The Heat Seekers, her debut in hardcover. Zane knows exactly what her readers want, and in Gettin' Buck Wild she gives them some of her most provocative prose to date. Her characters and settings run the gamut from committed, monogamous couples looking to experiment, to the wild single sisters who belong to a very unconventional sorority. Zane tells the story of a high-paid multi-tasking career woman who gets her groove back in "When Opposites Attract," a couple who try something new in "The Subway -- A Quickie," and a new way of celebrating Christmas in "The Santa Claus." She spices up real-life scenarios with over-the-top sexual fantasy and ultimately gives her readers the best time they've ever had between the pages of a book. With all-new characters and settings, Gettin' Buck Wild is Zane's hottest collection of stories yet. Smart, witty and extremely sexy, this second volume of Sex Chronicles is tailored to women -- but perfect for lovers to share.
