After The Dance
Faye Abrahams is a thirty-something woman who's after reciprocity, not romance. She's not after Mr Right - she just wants a man who'll respect her boundaries, satisfy her needs and take a hike if either of them start getting too attached. But her next door neighbour Carl's got other ideas - and so does her old childhood sweetheart, Vernard.

It's Her Game . . .
Here's my deal--I'm not knocking myself out to find Mr. Right anymore. As far as this thirty-something sistah is concerned, it's now about reciprocity, not romance. A brother doesn't have to whisper promises he won't keep or make me any kind of commitment. All he needs to do is respect my boundaries, rock my world--then step the hell on before anyone gets too attached. That's why the last man I need to be trying to hook-up with is my next door neighbor, Carl.
But He's Breaking All The Rules . . .
Who does Faye think she's fooling? She and I both know all that talk she does about game-playing is little more than a big front. Besides, playing by the rules won't necessarily keep us from falling in love. And if what's been going on between us lately is any indication, I'm thinking at least one of us is already halfway there. . ..
"After the Dance is a fast-paced delight with a plotline so intriguing and dialogue and characters so real, I had to keep reminding myself that I was reading fiction. It is an easy read with NO dull moments. I was hooked from the first page to the last. This is a five star new story from a five star new author!" --Mary Monroe, New York Times bestselling author
"Unique, interesting characters and sharp, crackling wit laced with occasional pathos make this first novel a genuine winner." --Gwynne Forster, author of Getting Some of Her Own
