She swore to never love again. He swore to avenge the deaths of his murdered family.
Can love curve their bitter hearts?
Parker Spears has seen her fair share of hurt, heart ache, and pain, and knows more than anyone how precious time is. She’s the lead certified fraud examiner at her firm, and the twin cities’ reigning Madam of the night. With an empire she inherited and elevated to a multi-million-dollar enterprise, Parker’s ready to embark on the one thing she never thought she would be allowed to do…love a man who could possibly destroy the very empire she’s built, her family, and her fragile heart.
Xander Wallace lost his only family at the hands of a notorious hit man awaiting his execution on death row at the Louisiana State Penitentiary in Angola. He’s seen war in the streets and overseas, and he’s more than ready to put an end to the crime taking over his city by a ruthless and longstanding kingpin. Going undercover was necessary for his career but falling for the mysterious woman he pulled over one day proved to be vital for his life. As his past and present merge into one, Xander comes to learn that to get truth, love, and peace, he’ll have to get blood on his hands.
Both have pasts too painful to forget. Both have futures too promising to ignore. Will Parker and Xander walk the straight and narrow path laid out for them, or will they curve it towards their destiny?

BIOGRAPHY An award winning author by 28, Toni has entered the latter years of her twenties ready for more.
Winning for Best Fiction at the 2018 African American Literary Award show, Toni has found her rhythm in the pen by lacing her words with poetry and painting the page with such vivid imagery, you'd swear you were experiencing it first hand.
Born and raised in Monroe, LA, Toni continues her community service duties when she can with her sorority, advocating for Multiple Sclerosis awareness since being diagnosed in 2014, and personifying the notion that HBCU's are more than D9 organizations, halftime shows, and homecomings.
Toni loves a good documentary or docu-series on female serial killers, kidnappings, black musicians from the 50's and 60's, and sports. Wine and Crown Apple are essential to both her every day life and her writing process, and she will double text you if you don't answer in a timely manner.
"Writing about love, life, failure, deception, and sex are all cathartic for me. I've spent a lot of years holding in my emotions for reasons I'm too scared to address at the present. So, for the time being, I express them in 'not so' fictitious characters...in the hopes that one day, the person I'm writing about or writing to will read them. It's like throwing glitter in the air; you don't know where it will land, but you know that it will touch some of everything and stick." -Author Toni Carter
