a provocative tale that entraps us in a web that keeps us right there awaiting the next turn….

A Perfect Affair by Lutishia Lovely was a very enticing and engaging read.  I wanted to climb into that book, hurt somebody a few times, and shake to mess out of a couple other times.  A Perfect Affair is a provocative tale that centers around an award-winning biologist, Randall Atwater and a freelance writer, Jacqueline Tate. They meet at a scientific conference on trends and technology in which she is there to do a feature story on him for Science Today.  She is immediately drawn to this handsome, brainy, attentive, and reserved man.  During this week long conference, she becomes determined to make him hers.  

Jacqueline sets out to woo and get the man she has fancied herself in love with and will pull out all stops to do so.  This she does despite him having a wife, Sherri and two children at home. As we experience this tale of love, determination and other elements, we are caught up in an emotional spiral of manipulation, lies, trickery and deception. All to what cost?  Ms. Lovely spun a tale that entraps us in a web that keeps us right there awaiting the next turn, act, deed and reaction.

an intriguing continuation of suspense and mystery that’s accented with love, romance and family….

A Man’s Promise by Brenda Jackson is an intriguing continuation of suspense and mystery that’s accented with love, romance and family.  Mrs. Jackson penned a novel that keeps us guessing and teetering on the edge of our seats.  I was drawn completely into this continuum of the Granger Brothers Series.
