Sugar Daddy's Game

Author:Nikki Turner

#1 best-selling author Nikki Turner returns with an explosive new novel about a woman at an emotional crossroads–and the men left in her wake.
Isis Tatum knows firsthand the way love can mess up a person. After all, she saw her mother drive a truck through the home of her father's mistress before killing her dad. And ever since Isis was a teenager, her love life has been a series of disasters: Her first sweetheart was executed by the state of Virginia, and her next lover was sent to jail for murder. Now Isis is a successful jewelry designer, but she remains a failure with men. When she meets Logic, a Las Vegas high roller who treats her like a princess, Isis reckons she's finally struck gold–literally. Logic sees to it that her custom pieces of jewelry are seen on the hottest rap stars and pro athletes.
But when this Mr. Right ends up in jail too, Isis starts to believe that she's cursed, that she's a true Black Widow. Always one to roll with the punches, she embraces her life and walks bravely down all its twisted paths, taking her business to unprecedented heights while letting the men who dare to get involved with her take their chances.

Author:Stephanie L. Jones

Have you ever been sexually abused? It's a simple, yet profound question. The answer is either yes or no. Unfortunately, for as many as one in three females and one in five males, the answer is yes. Sexual abuse is not bound by race, economic status, or social class. It strikes every family. Because of the hurt, shame, and embarrassment it brings to families, no one wants to talk about it. Do you think that it hasn't happened in your family? Think again! Have you or someone you know been sexually promiscuous? Are you feeling lonely, confused, or depressed and don't know why? Do you wonder if the person who abused you ever thinks about it? Do you have problems being intimate with your spouse? Before you send your child off to another baby-sitter... Before you let your child play Hide-and-seek... Before you let your child spend the night anywhere else... Before you call another pregnant teen a fast little girl... Before you say, My husband would never touch my child... YOU MUST READ THE ENEMY BETWEEN MY LEGS!

Final Analysis

Author:Catherine Crier

In October 2002, Susan Polk, a housewife and mother of three, was arrested for the murder of her husband, Felix. The arrest in her sleepy northern California town kicked off what would become one of the most captivating murder trials in recent memory, as police, local attorneys, and the national media sought to unravel the complex web of events that sent this seemingly devoted housewife over the edge.

Now, with the exclusive access and in-depth reporting that made A Deadly Game a number one New York Times bestseller, Catherine Crier turns an analytical eye to the story of Susan Polk, delving into her past and examining how over twenty years of marriage culminated in murder. Tracing the family's history, Crier skillfully maneuvers the murky waters of the Polk's marriage, looking at the real story behind Susan, Felix, and their unorthodox courtship. When Susan was in high school, Felix, who was more than twenty years her senior, had been her psychologist, and it was during their sessions that the romantic entanglement began. From these troubling origins grew a difficult marriage, one which produced three healthy boys but also led to disturbing accusations of abuse from both spouses.

With extraordinary detail, Crier dissects this dangerous relationship between husband and wife, exposing their psychological motivations and the painful impact that these motivations had on their sons, Adam, Eli, and Gabriel. Drawing on sources from all sides of the case, Crier masterfully reconstructs the tumultuous chronology of the Polk family, telling the story of how Susan and Felix struggled to control their rambunctious sons and their disintegrating marriage in the years and months leading up to Felix's death.

But the history of the Polk family is only half the story. Here Crier also elucidates the methodical police work of the murder investigation, revealing never-before-seen photos and writings from the case file. In addition, she carefully scrutinizes the many twists and turns of the remarkable trial, exploring Susan's struggles with her defense attorneys and her shocking decision to represent herself.

Dark, psychological, and terrifying, Final Analysis is a harrowing look at the recesses of the human mind and the trauma that reveals them.

How to Ducka Suckah

Author:Big Boom

Author and "Bodyguard for Women's Hearts" Boom provides tough love that's as frank as it is old-fashioned, a style best demonstrated by the title of his first book, If You Want Closure in Your Relationship, Start with Your Legs. A former bad boy (read: working pimp) himself, Boom warns that "men are always looking for something to catch or shoot down," but locates the real problem in the woman "who refuses to let go... or change her bad habits." To that end, Boom spends much time chiding women for ignoring unwritten rules of gender relations like, "Girls follow, men lead." In a chapter called "Appearance" (Boom is nothing if not straightforward), the author starts with "Seven Important Beauty Basics Steps My Wife Uses" before moving on to tips like "Don't Wear Your Clothes Too Tight," keep your home clean and remember the small things: "I can't tell you how many good women I have turned down," Boom says, because of "something stupid" like "the way her toenails look." The assumption throughout is that it's far easier and more effective to play along with superficial attitudes (among men and women alike) than to change them; if you can embrace the game, and put up with some well-intentioned chauvinism, this is an able primer.

One day as Eliza and Savannah completed their chores and giggled, an older man, Jenkins Lee, came to call on her parents and Eliza found herself betrothed to a stranger with her dream of finishing school being thrown away with the bathwater. While in rural southwestern Georgia, Eliza deals with a philandering, physically abusive, and usually absent husband that rambles in and out of her and her eight children lives.

For Lovers Only

Author:Alex Hairston

And Joel...
I thought that Erin was the only woman for me. But her friend Kenya was just as appealing. When they proposed that we become a threesome, my hottest fantasy became reality. And before I knew what was happening, I found myself falling hard--for both of them.

The African Origin of Western Civilization

Author:C. H. Oliver

Revisit the origins of Western civilization in the company of Dr. C. Herbert Oliver, who, examines literary relics with the eye of an archeologist. The author's thesis is that the basic sciences and the tools of learning, the invention of which is often credited to the ancient Greeks, actually originated in black culture. Such origins, however, have been largely and intentionally obscured. To prove his case, the author calls upon witnesses from the past for first-hand knowledge, i.e., Homer, Herodotus, Hesiod, and Ovid. Their testimony is provided I the context of the author's dialogue with Cadmus, of myth, legend, and history, whose search for his sister Europa, abducted by Zeus, brought him from Phoenicia to Greece. This book calls upon the reader to examine the evidence that the contributions of ancient black peopes to wrold civilization have been denied.

They bought a beautiful brand new home in the suburbs and Janine thought she was living the American dream. That is until the day she listened to Gary's voice messages…Janine's perfect dream world quickly turned into a devastating nightmare:

“One night, around midnight, I was lying in bed feeling extremely sad and lonely. I had been crying all day. My husband was sound asleep beside me. I slid out of bed and took Gary's cell phone from his night table. My hands were already shaking, it was almost as if I knew something disturbing was about to happen. Suddenly, I heard a man's voice calling my husband, “Baby.” My heart started pounding, I couldn't breathe, and my body began to tremble from head to toe. As I was reeling from shock, I heard another voice message from the same man, telling Gary he couldn't get together with him at the job this weekend and he hoped he wasn't mad. He then said, “Baby, you really put something on my mind and I cant stop thinking about it.” The tone was very intimate like a man would speak to his woman. I was in total shock.”

The Straight-Up Truth About The Down-Low is a must read for all women. It was written by two women who have experienced the anguish and misery of being married to men on the down-low. They will share from the depths of their hearts, souls and minds as they tell their stories and the stories of other women who have lived through this experience.
