I struggled to come up with the third book for this African-American heroine theme so it's a 2.33 for 1 deal.  No, I'm not going to send you a third of a book.  The third book has three main characters, one of whom is a sexy, feisty African-American!

  1. Party Girls by Roz Bailey - Writer Zoey McGuire flees the suburbs of Connecticut and her failed marriage for her editor's posh apartment in New York. Luckily her friends are there to cheer her up: aspiring actress Marielle, real estate agent and recent tantric sex convert Jade, and commitment-shy Merlin. Zoey, the author of three successful novels, is trying to come up with a fourth that will please the audience who loved her first novel, His Daughter's Keeper. Marielle is frustrated with her job as a bartender at a fancy nightclub and her agent's ineptitude at finding her decent auditions. Jade has decided that she needs to find a billionaire to make her dreams come true. And Merlin is trying to decide whether to settle down with his longtime boyfriend, Josh. When Zoey takes up with the handsome contractor working on her editor's apartment, she finds an exhilarating though empty relationship that fuels her writing. Bailey's tale is snazzy, fun, and filled with likable characters worth rooting for.
  2. Espresso for Two by Courni Wright -Brandi Owens has worked hard to make her bookstore, Over the Rainbow, an integral part of the Takoma Park neighborhood. Sam Carlson, who owns Where the Worlds Meet, the coffee shop next door, has done the same. Every night, after closing, Brandi goes next door for a cup of hot chocolate and a chat with Sam, never imagining that their comfortable friendship is headed for romance. Sam and Brandi begin to make plans to join their shops, as well as their lives. But someone else has an eye on their spaces, and before long, an anonymous tip causes Brandi to be audited by the IRS. More problems keep coming, but Brandi has no idea who her enemy is. Determined to save her store and her man, she refuses to knuckle under to whatever's thrown her way. Like You've Got Mail, this David and Goliath story of an independent bookstore and the corporate giant that's headed for the same neighborhood will keep the reader cheering for the brave, resolute underdog.
  3. Surviving Mr. Right by Teresa McClain-Watson -Dr. Victoria Coleman is a savvy DC History Professor who can handle everything except the love scene.  Show the woman a good-looking brother and she's in trouble! 

Order 1 and pm/post here and I'll send you all three!
