“Live in the moment with me.”

That’s what he asked Dahlia to do, and she did, because after a near death experience, her motto was to live life to the fullest. She gave him everything. Her body. Her heart. Then it all came to an abrupt end. She didn’t anticipate he wouldn’t trust her. She didn’t anticipate she couldn’t trust him.

He wants his son.

Three years later, Prince Kofi returns and he’s not the same man. He’s bitter and angry and knows he has a son. He’ll do whatever it takes to bring his heir back to Zamibia, even if it means marrying the woman he believes betrayed him.

Dahlia must now raise her son in a culture she doesn’t fully understand, but when a nightmare strikes the royal family, will it bring her and Kofi closer together, or tear them apart for good?

They had no idea how much their lives would change…forever.

Imani Karunzika is fiercely independent and refuses to be forced into a loveless marriage with the domineering man her parents want for her. When her friend Crown Prince Wasim al-Hassan of Barrakesch learns he’ll be passed over for the throne because he has no wife, she suggests a plan where they enter into a fake engagement. He can then secure his birthright, and she can get her parents off her back.

But the marriage must proceed as planned. Wasim becomes the king, she becomes the queen and is now under the rule of a man whose power and authority is unmatched. But Imani’s greatest struggle lies not within the walls of the palace, but inside herself as she fights to keep the ultimate secret—that she’s madly in love with the king.

reana broken angel 510fHLDpSnL._SY346_

Broken Angel was written by USA TODAY Bestselling Author Reana Malori

She was an angel… craving chaos. He was a demon… seeking peace.

When Nico Mitchell met Lavinia Ross, it was annoyance-at-first-sight. She pushed his buttons, created chaos in her wake, and made him fall in love with the very essence of her soul. He’d never claimed to be a nice man, or even a good man, but none of that mattered to her. When Lavinia believes he’s betrayed her, the anger and retribution are swift and unmistakable. They call him a demon, but he needs his broken angel to soothe his soul.

They were a match made in hell, and their love for each other burned hotter every day.

Lavinia Ross hated Nico Mitchell for what he’d done to her. He’d taken her love and thrown it back in her face, as if it were nothing. As if she were nothing. After everything they’d been through together, his betrayal was unforgivable. Yet, she couldn’t explain the love she still felt for him. Nor the ache in her heart when she thought of the years they spent together. And why the hell does it hurt so much to know that he no longer loves her the way she loves him? Everyone thinks she’s an angel, but she craves her devil’s darkness to tame the beast inside.
