A taste of paradise
For two weeks each year, Kingsley Diallo puts aside his responsibilities as CEO of a multibillion-dollar company and heads to Aruba.

Surrender to Me (The Lawsons of Louisiana) by Donna Hill – August 1, 2017
No woman has ever caught him…until now
Rafe Lawson is driven by two things: his music and living a life away from the influence of his powerful senator father. The woman he meets at a high-profile family celebration won’t change his playboy ways. Still, Rafe is intrigued by the stunning Secret Service agent who never mixes business and pleasure. He has no choice but to jet to DC and use his legendary Lawson power of seduction to win over Avery Richards.
The first female in her family to rise up the ranks of high-level government security, Avery is comfortable flying halfway across the world at a moment’s notice. But her desire for the sax-playing heir to a political dynasty creates more tension than being on presidential detail. Their fathers are enemies who share a long, bitter history. When Avery falls for Rafe, her loyalty to her family is tested and Rafe’s contentious feud with his father could cost them everything. They must now decide what’s most important—the life they’ve always lived or the one they can possibly make together.
In the Market for Love (Kimani Romance) by Joy Avery

Alonso is committed to building a community-events center that will be a lasting monument to his grandfather’s memory. The only thing keeping him from fulfilling his dream is the compassionate, guarded beauty who refuses to negotiate. If he fails, Alonso stands to lose a significant investment. But once he gives in to his desire for Vivian, he could lose something far more precious. As a hurricane batters the North Carolina coast, an unscrupulous business associate threatens to derail Alonso’s future, which now means nothing without Vivian to share it with him…
Wisdom In Your Words: Change your words, change your life. by Nona Harrison-Stewart – August 21, 2017
For many of us seeking growth and transformation in our lives, the primary boundary to seeing those things actualized in our lives is the way we speak to ourselves. The words that we use are often rooted in a place void of love, compassion, and forgiveness of Self. By reframing the language of the negative threads we run in our minds with the words we use, our dreams, hopes, and ambitions can begin to manifest before our very eyes.
By mastering self-critique via replacing language, your healing can begin and you can get to your soul’s assignment: Mastery of life and conquering challenges with love at the root of all actions toward Self and others.
