(Love in the city is a different kind of crazy. Unattached...)
Love in the city is a different kind of crazy. Unattached and independent, a free spirit flying high uptown, Leslie is black, beautiful, twenty-one, and still a virgin. Not that there's any lack of interested males in this level-headed young sista's world. But she's got too much self-respect - and too much going on - to take a wrong step that just might trip her up but good. So why is her one weakness a hardworking chocolate dream named Benjamin who's much older than she is (thirty-four!) and just happens to be living with another woman and their teenage son? So what else can a girlfriend do except try to keep her head while she follows her heart all in the name of love?
(Smart, sexy Shemone Waters didn't let the very mean stree...)
Smart, sexy Shemone Waters didn't let the very mean streets of Harlem drag her down. But Darnell Williams, her best friend from high school, made one critical mistake - and was sent to prison because of it. Now, at twenty-nine, Shemone's on the fast-track up - a columnist for a hot African-American mag - and she has little time for romance or danger. But Darnell is coming home to throw her carefully thought-out "ten-year plan" into chaos. Is he a new man or just another ex-con back on the streets until another misstep puts him behind bars again?
(In these hard times, most of us want to believe in someth...)
In these hard times, most of us want to believe in something: a higher power, or maybe even more in ourselves. But some of us have to learn the hard way, that getting money isn't the answer to everything. When Lisette Jones transforms herself into "Golden" and hits the stage as a stripper, it's all or nothing - a dedication that's earning her top dollar at Club Bare. With the untimely death of her ex, it's a profession that chose her, so Lisette's determined to make it work, even if it means chasing dollars to maintain the comfortable lifestyle that she and her teenage daughter are accustomed to. Being in the spotlight turns out to be downright addictive, but it doesn't help to fill the void of losing loved ones. Meet the possible solution in Cynthia, her scripture-quoting, Bible-toting best friend. It's because of an invite from her that Lisette stumbles upon just the comfort she's been seeking in a higher power.
Hunter Hayes attended Manhattan College and received there a degree in communications.
Hunter Hayes, after studying in college, embarked on a career in business. When success proved elusive, however, she remembered a professor's suggestion that she become a writer and decided to heed this advice. Setting down to work as methodically as she had tried to build her first career, she self-published her first manuscript. Though Hunter found this effort daunting because of all the marketing involved, the effort paid off when the book caught the eye of many delighted readers, and she was eventually offered a two-book contract by a large publishing house.
Shoe's on the Otha' Foot is Hayes' first romance novel. Set in Harlem, it concerns two protagonists. Leslie is twenty-one and single, a strong-willed woman who values independence and ambition, and Leslie's friend Rachelle, a single mother of three, is unhappy about her emotional dependence on her two boyfriends. In the course of the novel, both women slowly realize that they need to turn their lives around. Hayes's second novel, A Pair Like No Otha', follows the plight of a successful African-American woman involved with an ex-convict determined to realize his full potential.
After a break, in 2010 Hayes published her new book, Stripper Pole to Heaven. It is a story of friendship that stands the test of time, that does not judge nor condemn one's choices in life.
