    The Cartel series is back … and deadlier than ever. Las Vegas: a city built on obscene wealth and corrupt deals, cunning entrepreneurs, and the ruthless mob. The Cartel’s plan to open a casino will rake in cash, but it comes with great sacrifice. The stakes have never been this high, and the rules of the game have never been this hard to manipulate. And when one dead girl, one scorned wife, and one hole in the desert launch a chain of catastrophic events, the Cartel is sent on a downward spiral as they battle the Arabian mob and fight traitors within their circle. Will the Cartel prevail … or fall victim to the city’s black cloud? If there’s one rule in the town of Vegas, it’s that when the dust settles, there can only be one winner.

    Hood rat: a woman of questionable repute, one who has been known to “get around” in the ‘hood Yoshi is young, fine, and larcenous. She lives her life playing on men’s hearts as well as their pockets. But she learns the hard way that all that glitters isn’t gold. Billy, a former high school basketball star, is at the end of her rope with the opposite sex. To her, all men are dogs, so she secretly seeks comfort in the arms of women—until she meets a man who makes her reevaluate her feelings. Reese is an around-the-way chick trying to keep up with the Joneses. There’s a revolving door on her bedroom as she searches for the love she always felt was missing. When her promiscuity leaves her pregnant after a one-night stand, Reese is faced with the task of breaking an age-old cycle, passed down from mother to daughter in her family, and standing on her own. Rhonda is twentysomething with three kids from three different men, and she’s riding the system all the way to the bank. To her, work is a dirty word; between the multiple checks she gets from the government and the games she plays with men, she’s living the life of a ghetto superstar. But the game soon turns ugly when one of her “sponsors” decides to get some payback. Harlem has never seen four friends as scandalous as these. The neighborhood will never be the same again.

    15 years after the publication of Push, one year after the Academy Award–winning film adaptation, Sapphire gives voice to Precious’ son, Abdul. In The Kid bestselling author Sapphire tells the electrifying story of Abdul Jones, the son of Push’s unforgettable heroine, Precious. A story of body and spirit, rooted in the hungers of flesh and of the soul, The Kid brings us deep into the interior life of Abdul Jones. We meet him at age nine, on the day of his mother’s funeral. Left alone to navigate a world in which love and hate sometimes hideously masquerade, forced to confront unspeakable violence, his history, and the dark corners of his own heart, Abdul claws his way toward adulthood and toward an identity he can stand behind. In a generational story that moves with the speed of thought from a Mississippi dirt farm to Harlem in its heyday; from a troubled Catholic orphanage to downtown artist’s lofts, The Kid tells of a twenty-first-century young man’s fight to find a way toward the future. A testament to the ferocity of the human spirit and the deep nourishing power of love and of art, The Kid chronicles a young man about to take flight. In the intimate, terrifying, and deeply alive story of Abdul’s journey, we are witness to an artist’s birth by fire.

    #1 Essence bestselling author K’wan presents three explosive stories in one collection. Love & Gunplay After news of the attempted murder of his estranged fiancée, Gucci, Animal has two things on his mind: love and gunplay. With the help of his mistress, the deadly Red Sonja, Animal manages to elude his captors in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico, and washes up on the shores of Miami. He’s one step closer to home, but it may as well be a world away. Animal is still a wanted fugitive, and getting to New York undetected proves to be trickier than he thought. This all changes when he meets an old friend of Red Sonja’s, a New Orleans refugee named Diamonds. Diamonds promises to provide Animal with safe passage from Miami to New York as well as all the firepower he will need to settle his blood debt, but he also brings something far more valuable to the table: the name of the man who shot Gucci. Diamonds holds the key to solving the mystery of what really happened that tragic night in Harlem, but the information comes at a price. Animal finds himself swept up into a deadly game of cat-and-mouse set in the glamorous Miami underworld of sex, drugs, and violence, where cash is king and death is always lurking. His only ally is a mysterious stripper named Reign, who harbors a secret that threatens to change everything. Purple Reign Don B is the owner and headliner of a successful yet notorious record label called Big Dawg Entertainment, whose stars all seem to meet with unfortunate ends under mysterious circumstances. Don B made his fortune off music and his name from the trail of broken lives he’s left in his wake. He is a predator in every sense of the word. Don B’s wealth and power make him believe he’s untouchable, but all this changes during a business trip to Miami and a chance meeting with a stranger who calls herself Reign. Little Nikki Grind After years of work on the streets, Felon has finally saved up enough money to retire from the illegal life and pursue a legitimate career in the music industry. Having just inked a distribution deal for his fledgling entertainment company, Freak Show, Felon and a few of his closest friends decide to go out and celebrate at a new gentleman’s club in New York called Purple City. It’s at Purple City where he meets a young dancer named Nikki, who has a story to tell that will turn Felon’s world upside down. When Felon is sucked into Nikki’s web of sex, deceit, and murder, it threatens to ruin everything he’s worked so hard to build and to take him out of the game permanently.

    No shade means no offense (as defined by the Urban Dictionary). Example: Don’t tell her I told you, but your little cousin is a ho. No shade. Every little girl dreams of a happy ending to her story; a home, children, and a man who loves her enough to share his life and last name. When Billy’s longtime boyfriend Marcus finally pops the question, it’s one of the happiest moments of her life. Billy calls on her childhood friends Reese and Yoshi to stand with her on her special day. Several years have passed since they’d last come together, and unresolved issues have driven a wedge between the women. Nevertheless, they agree to put their differences aside for the sake of Billy’s wedding. But the truce is a short one when Billy has to decide on a maid of honor. Just when things seem to be coming together, they quickly begin to fall apart. At a time when Billy is supposed to be basking in the sunshine of her approaching wedding, she finds herself the target of shade being thrown from the most unlikely places. While Billy is going through her drama, Marcus is dealing with issues of his own. An old crime partner of his blows into town unexpectedly, and his presence threatens to destroy the legitimate life Marcus has worked so hard to build. Even with the universe seemingly working against them, Billy and Marcus are determined to have their dream wedding. But first they have to survive the nightmare of planning it. There goes the neighborhood … again.

    Dogs howl in the streets, running wild. Birds fall from the sky, dead. Even the sun itself is failing. Nothing about the world is as it was. Nothing can be trusted. Even the power is out. Everywhere. In everything. Evangelists stand on street corners asking if you’ve made your peace with god, because this is the end, isn’t it? All of the portents point to it. Our time is up. We are living in the middle of an extinction event. People are frightened. And it’s only going to get worse. As darkness descends, all hell breaks loose. Terrorists strike hard and fast, taking out the army base at Fort Hamilton, leaving the island of Manhattan vulnerable. There’s talk of an attack on the bridges and tunnels to isolate the island. No one is safe. No one knows what is happening. Jake Quinn is an NYC subway electrician. In another life he was Special Forces. Now he finds himself dragged into a world of conspiracy and danger by a woman he hasn’t spoken to in over a decade. Sandra Keane, his ex-girlfriend, is one of the few that knows what is going on. She has just turned against her paymasters, and now she’s running for her life through the streets of Paris with nowhere left to hide. As he emerges from beneath the city, Quinn finds two young men spraying graffiti across the subway station walls. These marks aren’t gang tags or band names, they are a message, a call to arms spelled out in a lost language. The Hidden are communicating with each other. Voices in a packed Times Square cry out: “Where are the warriors?” It is just one of the questions that haunts Jake Quinn as he is drawn deeper and deeper into a conspiracy hell-bent on bringing about the fall of man for profit. How do you fight an enemy you cannot see? How do you defeat ghosts? How do you stop some of the richest and most powerful men in the world when they own the shadows? And most important of all, how do you stay alive when the world around you is dying?
