  • Clarendon, Jamaica, West Indies, 2010
     “Look at me with your ugly face when I talk to you, gal!” Burchell Pigmore roared, his big, rough, calloused hand coming down hard on the back of Bella’s head, sending her flying face down onto the concrete floor of the veranda.   
    Screaming out in agony, nineteen-year-old Bella rolled over into a fetal position, her scrawny legs pulled towards her chest. “I’m sorry, Papa,” she mumbled, tasting blood in her mouth.
    “Sorry? You are always sorry,” her father yelled before he pummeled Bella’s body with kicks from his heavy duty, dirty work boots. “You are too ugly.” He kicked her in the back. “Too lazy.” Another kick landed on her bottom. “You give me too much talking.” A kick in her side. “You have the devil in you.” Two more kicks in her back. “You are worthless, good for nothing trash.” A few more kicks to her body.
    Her body was vibrating with pain from the beating it was taking. Bella closed her eyes, transporting herself to her hiding place deep in the crevice of her mind. She was floating through a large, beautiful field filled with exotic flowers and tall, statuesque, scented trees. The luscious green grass under her feet felt like cotton balls. The bright yellow sun kissed her beautiful face, while the cool breeze tickled her body all over. Bella smiled and raised her dainty hands into the air, happiness and joy swimming through every pore in her body. I’m in paradise, Bella thought. I don’t ever
    “Get your skinny behind up,” Burchell shouted, bringing Bella back to reality. He reached down, grabbed his daughter by her slender neck, his fingers squeezing tight with all their might, and pulled her to her feet.
    Bella squealed and kicked wildly, but she was no match for her beast of a father. “Let me go, Papa! Somebody help me! Jesus!” But Bella’s screams went unheard in the small community as no one came to her aid.
    “Jesus? You think Jesus wants anything to do with your ugly behind?” Burchell’s fist rivaled that of the great Muhammad Ali when it connected with the girl’s stomach.
    Bella saw bright colored lights dancing in front of her eyes as the ground began spinning around.
    “I’ve enough of you!” He landed another uppercut to her stomach that felt as if it went inside and twisted up her intestines like a pretzel.
    Burchell released the hold on her neck and Bella grabbed her stomach and bent over, tears swimming down her face as she choked and coughed, sucking much needed air into her burning lungs. Her head pounding, her stomach cramping, and her body aching, Bella took a few baby steps as she stumbled away from her father.
    But Burchell grabbed a hold of her blouse bringing Bella as close as possible. With heavy blows to her body he proceeded to beat her within an inch of her life.  
    As the young girl’s eyes rolled to the back of her head, with blood surging down her face, she slumped towards her father, losing the battle of consciousness.
    With a smirk on his face, Burchell stepped to the side and watched in satisfaction as Bella’s body crumbled to the floor once again.
    “That’s what you get for not listening to me,” he said, spitting a wad of tobacco spittle on Bella. “Worthless just like your whoring mother. May her soul rest in the pit of hell.” Burchell turned and walked into the three-bedroom house, slamming the door shut on the sight of his daughter’s unconscious body.
    A few minutes later, groaning in agony, Bella tried to open her eyes but they seemed to be shut together. She gingerly rolled over onto her back, biting her lips to stop the scream trapped in her throat. Her body was throbbing from head to toe. Finally, Bella managed to get one eye half open and glanced around, confused.  She realized she was lying on their veranda and the memory of the beating she took earlier came flooding back. Bella wasn’t sure how long she was passed out, but she resented the fact that she woke up.
    “Why didn’t you just let me die?” Bella mumbled through bloody, swollen lips, looking up into the ceiling. “Lord, why do you continue to let me suffer like this?” Tears seeped down the sides of her eyes onto the floor. “Mama, can you hear me? I want to be with you, Mama,” Bella said as she talked to her deceased mother who had passed away a year ago. “I want to die too.” But neither God nor her mother responded.

Excerpt
“Nma, so where’s this husband you keep saying you have?” Abayomi heard the man say as he approached.
Olanma giggled and then abruptly stopped. Abayomi knew that in that moment she sensed his presence. She turned sideways, but the man she was with was so busy checking her out that he didn’t see Abayomi walk up.
“If he’s not taking care of…”
“I hear you’re looking for me and I take care of my wife just fine.” Abayomi came to a halt between Olanma and the man.
The look of shock on both their faces was satisfying. Nma? He couldn’t believe she allowed another man to call her that. Not even her father called her “beauty.” Only two people had that privilege – he and her grandmother. Or so he thought.
Abayomi snaked his arm around his wife’s waist and kissed her hair. He then stretched out his other hand to the man. “Abayomi Rice, said husband.”
The expression on the man’s face switched from shock to embarrassment. At least he had some shame.
After a few moments, he heard his wife say, “Yomi, this is Emeka Maduka, an old friend.”
Old friend? That’s what she thought. The man wanted her. Abayomi wasn’t fooled. He wrote the book on old friends. It was time to cut this little reunion short. “It was nice meeting you. I’ll take my wife now.”
Abayomi didn’t wait for a response before he ushered Olanma out of the ballroom. He found a secluded area where they could talk. He stared at her and began to pace. He had never been good at hiding his possessive nature.
“Yomi, that was rude and what are you doing here?” Olanma asked in a hushed whisper.
“Apparently, reminding you that you’re still my wife.”
She stared at him in disbelief. “No, I’m not doing this with you.”
“Really? Nma,” Abayomi said, his tone laced with irritation and sarcasm.
“You’ve got some nerve. You pop into Lagos two days ago, and then you don’t come home…” Her voice was shaky with rage. “I’m not doing this with you. Not here.” She began to walk away.
Abayomi exhaled. He was messing this up. “Olanma, wait.”
She stopped, but didn’t turn around.
“I’m sorry. I saw him touch you and then you laughed with him. I haven’t heard that sound in ages and I saw red.”
He hadn’t meant to reveal all that, but masked feelings were what had brought them to this point. If there was going to be a chance for them, they would have to lay down the masks. And since he was the one that was served with divorce papers, he had to take the first step. His prayer was that his vulnerability would lead them back to the intimacy they once shared. Where their souls were tied as one and hopefully rebuild their trust. He hoped she would see that.
Olanma walked back to him and stared at him intently. “It’s been a year. What did you expect? That I’d curl up and die?” She turned and walked away.
Her heated eyes showed him her soul. She was hurt, but so was he. This wasn’t what he imagined for them. Past the pain and anger he saw in her eyes, he also saw longing and love. It was clearer to him that restoring his marriage would be an uphill battle. Losing, however, wasn’t an option.

About The Book
Omar Drummond is a pro football superstar with a body that’s a pure work of art. But Morgan Gray is forbidden to act on their chemistry, or repeat their impulsive kiss. Proving her worth as a sports agent means securing the notorious celebrity as a client, not a lover. Yet between flowers, sweet notes and heady hotel interludes, Omar is shamelessly seducing her...
Other agents—and exes—have tried using Omar as a meal ticket, and he’s closed himself off from emotional entanglements. With Morgan, it’s a whole new playbook. Smart and tough, she can negotiate a contract and turn him on all in one go, and he craves more. But in matters of trust, he’s just fumbled badly. To win her he has to show her the man he can be away from the field and the limelight, and hope that this time they’re both playing for keeps.

Excerpt
Omar knew he had taken a risk showing up at Morgan’s office, but he was desperate. It had taken a lot to persuade Malcolm to share his sister’s information, especially since Omar had declined to say what had happened between them. He toyed with calling first, but changed his mind because he didn’t want to chance her refusing to see him. The woman seated outside Morgan’s office, whom he assumed was the assistant, greeted him with a wide smile and an exaggerated sway of her hips as she led him to the office. Omar ignored the not-so-subtle brush of her breasts against his arm when she turned to leave. In his peripheral vision, he noticed the slight rise in Morgan’s eyebrow and knew she’d seen it, too. He waited until the woman closed the door before turning to face Morgan.
Morgan folded her arms. “What are you doing here?”
“Hello to you, too,” he said.
An embarrassed expression crossed her face. “Sorry. Have a seat.”
Omar took the chair opposite her desk. “I apologize for stopping by without calling, but I figured you wouldn’t see me otherwise.”
“You were probably right. How do you know I won’t call security to throw you out now?”
“I don’t, but I’m counting on your love of football to work in my favor.” They engaged in a stare-down for several seconds until she looked away first.
“How did you know where I worked?”
“Malcolm.” She frowned and he added, “If it’s any consolation, he adamantly refused to divulge your home address.”
“Well, maybe I won’t kill him, after all.”
He chuckled.
“Since you went through all this trouble, I guess I can spare you five minutes.”
Omar knew the mention of football would rouse her curiosity. “I’d like to talk to you about a business proposition.”
“What does that have to do with football?”
“My contract is up for renewal in six weeks and—”
“Don’t you have an agent? If memory serves me correctly, you have one of the best agents around.”
“Things aren’t always as they seem.”
She sat up straight. “What are you saying?”
“I’m saying it’s time for a change, and I’d like you to negotiate my upcoming contract. You’re an attorney and, according to your brother, you know football like you’ve played it all your life.”
Her eyes lit up and her mouth fell open. “Are you serious? Wait a minute.” She sat back again and angled her head. “What about your current agent? Did he dump you or something?”
Omar sighed. “No.” There was more to it, but he would only tell her if she agreed to represent him.
Morgan narrowed her eyes. “There are dozens of sports agents out there, and I’m certain any one of them would be happy to take you on, especially with your numbers from last year. Yet you’re in my office.”
He smiled. “You checked my stats? So, you’re admitting I’ve got game?”
A rush of color darkened her face. “Why me?” she asked, ignoring his questions.
“You want to be an agent, and I need one.” He leaned forward and whispered, “And I know you passed the sport’s agent certification test. It’s a win-win situation for both of us.”
“On second thought, I am going to kill Malcolm,” she muttered.
“I need your help, Morgan. I wouldn’t be here if I didn’t.”
“I have to think about this.” She turned slightly in her chair and stared out the window, and then back at him. “You realize I already have a job. And I’m working on a case.”
Omar nodded. “I understand, and I have no problems working around your schedule.”
“Even on weekends or late evenings.”
“Anytime.”
“I see.” She went back to staring out the window.
He could almost hear the wheels turning in her head. She bit down on her lip, drawing his attention and reminding him how much he enjoyed kissing her.
Finally she angled her head his direction. “I’ll agree on one condition.”
“What’s that?”
“You keep your hands and lips to yourself. No more kisses.”
Omar groaned inwardly. There was no way he could go without kissing her. In fact, it had been the first thing on his mind from the moment he saw her today. “Morgan—”
“No. More. Kisses,” she repeated.
