Dark Romance Books | SEAL’s Captive | Book #1 BWWM Captive Series

seals captive dark romance books bwwm bad boy military romance us navy seal romance novelThe first installment of the BWWM Captive Series, SEAL's Captive was nothing like what I had expected. I first published this book under the title Bringing The Heat. The only issue? There was no heat. I got everything wrong and the book was a total flop.

I could have given up, but I didn't want to. I loved the story, and I knew with some more work, I could bring you a book that you would love just as much as I did. I made big changes. I consulted with a cover designer and told her that I wanted the best look for my readers. She came up with this cover you see here. But that wasn't enough…

I had to tweak to the story so I did. I made it hotter. I added in details and I opened the story up to further exploration in Book 2 and Book 3 of the trilogy.

This is the beginning of a story that's about both love and sisterhood. Three black women are connected by a father that they barely know and his death sends the heiresses spiraling into a dark world that they'd grown up knowing nothing about. In this extraordinary world, they find men capable of loving them more than they'd ever anticipated and from the darkness that they are thrust into, they find a beacon of light…

These stories aren't "too serious" either… I made them plenty steamy with hot new locations for hanky-panky that will have you heading out to experiment with hubby TONIGHT. Don't believe me? Check out this free sample and read the available books in the trilogy. You'll have a WILD time, I promise.

Ex Con's Captive is everything we have been waiting for after Book 1, SEAL's Captive… 

This book follows the story of the second Jackson sister, Tyra Jackson. Unlike her sister, Gigi, Tyra has had a tougher life than most. She's used her loud-mouth and her spitfire temper to shield her from all the hurt she's been exposed to in life. Her father's death leaves her an heiress but it's not a status she's comfortable with at all.

Tyra can be impulsive, which makes for an explosive dynamic between her and her captor, Leon Wilkins. The chemistry between the two is instant and volatile, with the contrast between Tyra's outspoken ways and Leon's reserved stoicism. Set far away from life in America, Ex Con's Captive will take this African American beauty all over Eastern Africa, from Nairobi to Kampala, and even through Tanzania.

Dark Romance Books | Hitman’s Captive | Book #3 BWWM Captive Series

hitman's captive jamila jasper interracial romance dark romance story bad boy bwwm romance novelsThe third and final installment in the BWWM Captive Series is finally here. We'll be closing out the novel with the final installment to this rockin' trilogy that follows the crazy stories of Gigi Jackson (Book 1, Seal's Captive) and Tyra Jackson (Book 2, Ex Con's Captive). These sisters have taken us around the world, okay?! In Book 1, we found ourselves in Costa Rica and in Book 2, we went all the way to Nairobi, Kenya with some part of the book in Uganda (Kampala) and Tanzania. 

It's been an incredible journey to Book 3 for me and I've spent many months tweaking the ending that I originally wanted to write a story that wasn't just about Dinah, but tied in the other three sisters so that you can all get final CLOSURE on the girls we have come to love throughout this year… 

What I can promise you in Dinah's book is that she's nothing like the reserved and shy Gigi or the loud-mouthed troublemaking Tyra. She's a breed of her own thanks to her upbringing by her CRAZY RICH father. This book explores what that life on the "dark economy" is like. 

Did you know that it's common for many rulers in ancient times to only surround themselves with female guards because they believed women are more trustworthy? There was no better woman for Jerome to trust than his own daughter so he turned her into the woman he needed her to be… a cold-blooded assassin. And yes, Jerome technically recruited "child soldiers" to protect his multi-million dollar fortune. This book delves into the depths of what this wealthy man left behind and how his daughter will manage to pick up the pieces of having grown up stronger than any woman she knows and struggling to let other people — especially men — into her life.

I don't want to spoil how the story ends for you, so without further ado, thank you for reading this far and I hope you enjoy the absolutely delicious teaser I'm posting below. Warning, you WILL be teased, so expect to end the sample wanting more (desperately).

Everything You Need To Know About The Cocky Trademark Scandal

So if you've been following anything in Romancelandia online in the past two weeks, you will have surely heard about "Cocky Gate", the trademark scandal that while hilarious on the surface reflects deeper questions about trademark laws in the United States and the future of romance as a genre.

The makings of  #CockyGate happened long before I received the "Cease & Desist" letter that would spiral this scandal in the romance industry into the spotlight.

Here's the letter I received. I shared this screenshot on Twitter after hearing allegations from fellow authors that Faleena Hopkins claimed she was being "bullied" by authors after sending kind and respectful letters to them. Here's the exact text of the kind and respectful letter that I received:

This response blew up on Twitter and I received an outpouring of support from fellow authors and requests to buy my offending title: Cocky Cowboy.

However, due to the nature of the Cease & Desist email, I decided to err on the side of caution and unpublish my book Cocky Cowboy to avoid further action by Ms Hopkins.

This act was later portrayed as an attempt to be nefarious on my part but that was never my intention. In fact, despite being upset, I did agree to comply with Ms Hopkins request and was sure to request that she never contact me again:

In my haste, I made a slight error in this email and I actually had the idea in January 2017 and definitive plans to publish in March 2018 by the middle of the summer in 2017.

After my screenshot blew up on Twitter, authors and readers alike requested permission to buy my title, Cocky Cowboy. However, I am very cautious about possible Amazon terms of service violations so I knew I had to get the book up there under a different name.

This is how "The Cockiest Cowboy To Have Ever Cocked" came to be: 
 

You can find this title here on Amazon if you're interested: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07B9MCHW7

This is identical in every way to my previous release except for the title and cover. It's an interracial romance story set in the Midwestern United States that has a little bit of a mystery element to the story. It's not your stereotypical bad boy romance in any way and as a Black author, my story centers around an African American woman.

My response to this controversy was not born out of spite but rather my belief that every negative situation has a positive side to it. Yes, it hurt to have to spend extra money on the cover, it hurt to no longer sell copies of my paperback book and of course, it hurt to see my hard work compromised because of someone else's accusations and to have me portrayed as nothing more than a copycat — which I am not! 

It's exceedingly common in this industry to have similar titles to other authors. One of my close friends in the writing world and I both published a book entitled "Father By Choice" for example and we both laughed it off. My title had come long after hers but I had completely forgotten. I had even promoted her book back then! She was another interracial romance author who didn't take it personally because this is so NORMAL. (By the way, my version of the book was recently published on audiobook and you can find it on Amazon, Audible, and iTunes.)  

For most of us, a brand is more than a title and it's certainly more than a common word. At the end of the day, I bear no hard feelings towards anyone involved with this, but I do want to share my side of the story as I've done and I want to express my gratitude towards everyone in the indie community and in the romance reader community. Your support has done me a world of good in keeping me motivated and inspired to keep writing and to trust that I can connect with others. 

It hurts to be attacked and it hurts to have your integrity questioned but at the end of the day, I chose to make lemonade out of those lemons (just like Beyoncé taught me!) 

Here are some of the things said about me online from an author who I had never encountered before receiving the email first posted on this blog:

(Disclaimer: I haven't actually read these slam posts until today while making this post because I am not interested in their content. I did get someone to pick some funny parts for my book description for the relaunch, but until now I never read them in full.) 

I also want to share some great articles on the entire situation that give a holistic perspective on what happened. My story is important, but what's more important is how the rest of the romance community has banded together to share the truth and to support authors that have been affected.

Here are some articles that summarize the situation:

#COCKYGATE 2k18 (WILD RIDE) 👀

Here's the author page to one of the author authors affected, Tara Crescent: 

https://www.amazon.com/Tara-Crescent/e/B00FY426O0

I would like to thank all the journalists who reached out to me with such grace and politeness about the situation. I greatly appreciate the way you've handled the situation and your kindness when reaching out to me. Thank you so much. 

Here was my final Facebook post response to the subject which summarizes my final position on the situation: 

Thank you for reading through this and I hope you have a wonderful day. You can find me on social media on these social networks if you're interested in reading more of my work or staying in touch:
