About The Book


Synopsis

A crime romance, mystery suspense, romance novel. Psychologist Leedra Henderson has a hidden motive in abandoning everything to accept a new job at the Anchored Empowerment Center. She secretly hopes that the new position will help her to investigate her own past – and to finally uncover the real story behind a string of mysterious deaths at her childhood foster home. Now a strong, independent woman, Leedra doesn't need help: she wants to seek justice, and she will. Alone. Dexter Parker needs his own answers about that time in the foster home so long ago. A grown man reeling from the fallout of a broken marriage, Dexter’s rational mind tells him never to try the risks of love again – but he knows he could fill in the blanks for Leedra, if only it doesn’t end up costing him his heart. More urgently, Dexter needs to save the determined Leedra from the results of her detective work, before it all blows up in her face and costs both of them their lives. Can the pair set aside their painful histories, avenge the lives that have been lost and – who knows – discover new love?


Excerpt

 His father moved closer, tugging feebly at Dexter only to be pushed back. “Get off me. Get off!” Dexter warned and gave a final shove. The old man fell dramatically onto the bed. The little energy he’d summoned was spent.

“Stop looking through my stuff.”

“No. It’s here, isn’t it? I’m going to listen to your pathetic excuses just one more time. I’m listening this time, so you tell me. You think you gonna die or something? Well, you’re still here now and people want answers. I want answers.”

His father sighed, rubbing his forehead. “I had a job and a life and I was trying to get my son—you—back. It wouldn’t have looked very good if they knew I had any dealings with those people, now would it?”

“You are ‘those people,’ Garrison,” Dexter clarified coldly.

“No, no. Now, I wasn’t like ‘em. I had a drug problem, y’see,” the older man clarified in a wheedling tone. “But I wasn’t no killer. Don’t you see I would never have been able to get you back if they found out? At least I had supervised—”

“I know, I know. Stupid supervised visitation to see me . . . A lot of good it did! Eventually, you stopped coming around altogether, anyway.”

THE FIFTEENTH SEPTEMBER

September is a bittersweet month for me. It is filled with celebrations of life as there are multiple Virgos in my immediate family, including myself and my mom, but it has also become a time of remembering death. Fifteen years ago, on September 11, 2001, I was staring out of the window at University of North Carolina Hospitals. My birthday was the next day, but it was overshadowed with wondering how I would survive the 12 hours days with my full-time internship in the psychiatric ward and my part-time job in admissions at night. Not physically, but mentally. It was the first time I'd been back there since my dad’s sudden cardiac death four years earlier in September of 1997, just a few days before he would have some time off and could celebrate a belated birthday lunch he had promised me. Ironically, I saw him in passing traffic as I sped to work just hours before his death and we waved and smiled. He pointed his finger like I was busted for driving too fast and I couldn’t wait …

When Stars Align

I had a wonderful time over the past few days celebrating Martin Luther King, Jr. with my former co-workers and watching the inaugural celebrations that coincided with the holiday. It was a very inspiring time and it sparked this small tribute to Dr. King and President Obama, straight from a Diva's Heart!

How divine, when stars align! Celebrating on this day, the birth of a King In the 50th year of the march for the justice he wished to bring In the same time and space where it all took place, His presence now stands tall to witness it all As we, Black, White and the rainbow in between Usher in, yet again, the manifest destiny of a dream!
Happy Birthday Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Congratulations President Barack Obama!
