BCT Update

Looking for your next billionaire book boyfriend? Meet Grayson Davis.

He’s a brilliant, bullied computer nerd turned handsome playboy, with a penchant for blondes. She’s the assistant to the assistant, who works on the third floor and is… not blonde. And secretly obsessed with him. Complete with all the classic “plain Jane” tropes you thought were hopelessly overdone, read the smart, sexy, bingeworthy debut exceeding “billionaire romance” expectations!

Amara’s Calling is the first book in the Billionaire’s Club series of sinfully sexy romances. If you like unexpected love, lucrative deals, and billionaires with as much prowess in the bedroom as the boardroom, then you’ll love C.L. Donley’s steamy office affair.

Book one in the Perfect Stats series.
In the span of a year, Bane Carter acquired a new job, his brother’s four kids, a crappy nanny and, worst of all, his ex-wife. What could possibly go wrong?
Rule number one—never help an ingrate! Ignoring that hard-learned lesson put Dahl Baby Hamilton straight in the path of her famous ex. All she has to do is save her cousin’s failing restaurant, First Down, then she can go back to her fabulous life. But the main financier—Bane Carter, her ex—finds out and decides to make her life a living hell. Either she becomes the personal chef for an ailing house manager, one neglectful nanny and his four charges or risk having her reputation ruined. What’s an award-winning chef to do when her sexy ex-husband is blackmailing her?
The only black GM in the league, former football hero Bane Carter has his work cut out for him. It’s bad enough that he has to navigate around a dysfunctional team, but the recent passing of his brother and his wife have given him full guardianship of their kids. On top of all that, the last thing he needs is to bump into the woman who broke his heart at the worst possible time—the beginning of his career.
After two failed marriages, Bane realizes he has always been searching for the one who got away the first time. Of course, he doesn’t expect to find her in the same city, let alone cooking in his restaurant.

I’m a bestselling romance author who weaves fantastic happily-ever-afters for my readers; yet in my personal life, I’m as single as an old maid. Every guy I’ve dated has been a complete disappointment – nothing like Evan Hanson, the sexy hero who dominates the pages of my wildly popular romance series, Forever Yours. I shouldn’t use him as a goal post. It’s not like he’s a real person.

But then Jaxson shows up and I swear he’s everything I have ever wanted in a man.

I also swear down that I recognize him…

From the pages of my romance novels.


I’ve been with Simone Storm from the beginning. This woman is divine, not only because she crafted me with the meticulous strokes of her pen, but because she is the most beautiful woman I have ever seen. For years, she’s tried to pair me with other women; women she thinks will make me a perfect match.

But they don’t.

I don’t want any of the women she has tried to offer me. I want her.

When an opportunity arises for me to present myself, I jump at it. Now I can see, hear, and touch her.

And now, I will help her craft a true happily-ever-after.

NBA hooper and self-proclaimed Bible scholar Anthony “The Saint” Chambers finally earned his championship ring after his Brooklyn Monarchs crowned their Cinderella season.

Preorder Alert.
Fall in love with a HERO on July 31st!

☆ Cherise ☆
He found me again.
I moved ten times in the past year.
Each time, the bastard found me.
Worst part…I had no idea who he was or what he looked like.
I’d always prided myself on being a strong black woman.
So I hated him for making me such a nervous wreck.
I couldn’t date.
I couldn’t go out with friends.
I couldn’t stay home and feel safe.
One day, I got a call from a guy who was ex-military and looking for a therapist.
He needed clearance to join the FBI.
He could be my stalker, or he could be a hero,
but I was determined not to live in fear any longer.
I told him I would help him.

☆Tobin ☆
After my brother’s suicide, I realized in serving my country,
I’d done a disservice to my family.
So I snapped and broke some shit.
And they quickly accepted my request to leave the military and return home.
As a former Navy SEAL, if I ever wanted to get into the FBI, my next goal,
I’d need to prove I wasn’t a safety concern.
Apparently, people with anger management issues shouldn’t carry weapons.
So, I took the advice of my superiors and found a therapist—a female therapist.
We were all of fifteen minutes into our session when I realized all was not right in her world.
She was on edge because she had a stalker.
Lucky for me, I wasn’t currently employed.
Lucky for her, I was highly trained and intensely motivated to save her.
I’d always been a sucker for a damsel in distress.
And this woman needed a hero.
