Connecticut Kings

Unedited. Subject to change. Last sample before release! As I approached my house, I frowned at the flashy black Mercedes G-class parked in my driveway. It wasn’t Nate’s car – he knew I meant it when I said it was time to go – but it still made my jaw tight to see it. As soon as I hit the door, I went searching for the owner and found him in my kitchen, in my refrigerator, like he owned the place. “Garrett,” I snapped, and he looked up, with a mouthful of the strawberries I’d intended to go with my breakfast this...

As usual - unedited, and subject to change. Release date is August 17th. Enjoy :) “Okay I must have the wrong office – can you point me to the one you use for your actual job? Thanks.” I grinned as my sister – my twin – Nicole didn’t even bother looking up from what she was doing to flip me off.  Taking a seat in front of her desk, I watched as she referred to some list she had, comparing it against what appeared to be a page full of numbered circles, with lines extending from each one. “Shouldn’t your fancy wedding planner...

I leaned in the doorway of my bedroom, watching him try his best not to fall asleep. It was late – later than he should be here at all, but with the workout we’d had… I figured I could at least let the man get some sleep. The glare from the TV cast a bluish glow across his dark copper skin, and reflected in his barely-open eyes. I tightened my silk robe around myself a little more as he took longer and longer to open his eyes again between “blinks”. But then, something must have alerted him to my presence because...

Endzone Love, Book 4 in the Connecticut Kings series, will be available for your reading pleasure in just a few days, but in the meantime, enjoy this sample from Love Belvin!   Have Sambi take a look at the gutter leak off the back of the kitchen… Call April to invite her up… File our marriage license… Remind Shawnie to bring my A Good Man-darin is Hard to Find O.P.I. polish back today… Pick up Trent’s shirt from the cleaners for tomorrow… He turned onto his stomach and now faced me. His thick arm pushed under the pillow where his head lay, and his lips parted. Trent...

Unedited. Subject to change, a lot. Light spoilers. Enjoy :) He was mad at me. I’d never experienced Ramsey being mad at me. I didn’t even know how to react to something like that, had no idea what to do or say. So I said nothing, and his silence continued all the way to our destination. Even then, he only spoke to advance the workout, and tell me what do. About twenty minutes in, right after he’d bossed me through running a lap at a pace I hadn’t seen in years, it occurred to me that he was working me harder than usual. I...

So, while my next installment of the Connecticut Kings project will not  be following Jordan and Cole, that doesn't mean we can't check in a little bit, and see what they're up to, right? This is not intended to read as a short story, etc, this is just a little snippet of something that came to my mind for them, so i'm setting it free. Here we go! “What the hell do you think you’re doing?!” Jordan jumped, obviously startled by the sound of my voice, then quickly tucked the basketball in his hands behind him before he turned guilty eyes in my direction....

Coming this summer, your favorite fictional football team is back like they never left, ready to take on a new season. Old friends and new faces weave through the pages of books three and four in the series, transporting you once again into the world of the Connecticut Kings!   From Christina Jones - Determining Possession - Good decisions don’t always leave you unscathed. Sometimes, the best choice might be the one that leaves you vulnerable. The one that forces you to face a not-so-distant past that hurts, or go through with something you never thought would come to fruition. The one that makes...

Unedited. Subject to change. enjoy. :)   My eyebrows shot up. “I…wow,” I stammered, as what had just happened really hit me. “I… I look forward to hearing from you. Again, thank you for the opportunity.” “No.” Eli stepped forward, putting a hand on my shoulder. “If all goes smoothly, it’s not an opportunity,” he corrected. “It’s your future.” The next few minutes were a blur. I know goodbyes were exchanged and all of that, but I damn near felt like I was floating as Jordan led me to find Wil and Cole. Barely, I registered Jordan telling me congratulations before he and Cole moved...

“This place is just… beyond perfect. I can barely even stand it.” “You said that about the last four places too.” I bit back a smile as Wil shot a glare in my direction, then immediately went back to fawning over the townhouse apartment. “Hardwood floors, and vaulted ceilings, and big windows, and granite counters, and half the price of living in New York,” she mused, in a dreamy sort of voice as she ran her fingers along one of the custom cabinets in the large kitchen. “And space. Glorious, wonderful, space. I think I’m in love.” I laughed at her enthusiasm, but...
