USA TODAY Bestselling Author Claudia Burgoa pens a fun and sexy romantic comedy where playing pretend turns to playing for keeps… We have to pretend that what we have is something like love… I’m down on my luck. Scratch that. This is the worst week of my life. Enter the last person I want to deal with: Burke St. James. He’s wealthy. He’s a womanizer. And a big liar. And it turns out we need each other. Burke needs a fiancée to seal the deal of a lifetime. I need help or my business is going belly-up. So, Burke very non-romantically asks me to marry him. Well, he asks me to be fake engaged to him, anyway. I’ll attend a few dinners, pretend I’m in love, and meet the family. In exchange, he’ll let me stay in his house, invest in my company, and help me launch it off the ground. All is easy, except his kisses feel more real than they should. And the sex…damn, we’re not supposed to have sex. It’s all for show…right? Did I mention he’s a really good liar? Pretending not to fall in love is more complicated than I thought.

Sis, do you want to WIN? Like most women, Lebo desired/yearned to WIN in love. She had a deep zeal to have a life full of achieved dreams and success. Somewhere in between her desires, she made a mistake. A mistake that she hid and was chained by for years. For the very first time, Lebo is vulnerable and honest about her mistake, and the things that held her back from the love & life of her dreams. As chained and held back as she was, she could have given up on life & love, but she didn’t let the things life threw at her dictate her destiny. She kept her faith even when it felt like her faith was failing her and kept pushing until she aligned with destiny, and finally got the WIN that she always wanted. A WIN she believes, she would not have had, had it not been for the Lord. The same God that she once forget about once. Lebo’s story is one of hope for the hopeless, freedom for the captive and victory for the underdogs. It is also a reminder to us of God’s unconditional love and that nothing bad anyone of us has done in the past, disqualifies us from taking hold of everything destined for us. “This book did not come about because I was always perfect or that my life or love life right now is that perfect or better than anyone. Rather, it is the result of a mistake I made that God turned into a message. A message of hope for the hopeless, freedom for the captive and victory for the underdogs. Through this book and drawing from my own story, I want to bring more women to the WINNING side of life & love regardless of how bad they have been in the past; the number of times they have failed or have had to come out last; their bad love track records and the things holding them back from the life they want….” ,says Lebogang She is an overcomer has ignited a movement across the world, helping women break free from the chains of their mistakes, practice self-love and WIN in love & life.

Enjoy",Siyabonga Ndlozi- Publisher, director and producer "Desperation, lack of self-love, identity crisis, fear, search for "true love" are real issues women are grappling daily. Lebo aptly unpacks these issues. I couldn't help but grab a tissue or two for my water eyes. I was quickly reminded that after all has been said and done, "At least there is hope for a tree: if it is cut down, it will sprout again, and its new shoots will not fail"Job 14:7" - Tatenda Magocha Chikumbu- Attorney, wife & Pastor

Something Is Out There

Well, something like regret—the old sense of something failing in the world, something obsessively, elementally wrong with the facts ... Last night, kissing the side of her neck, he said, “I love this about you, this downy little place.

From the prizewinning novelist and world-renowned short-story writer, the author of 2008’s universally acclaimed novel Peace (“A brilliant one-act drama depicting the futility and moral complexity of combat” —The New York Times), eleven indelible new tales that showcase the electrifying artistry of a master. A husband confronts the power of youth and the inexorable truths of old age. A son sits by his mother’s bedside determined to give her what she needs in her final days, even though doing so means breaking his own heart. A brief adulterous tryst illuminates the fragility of our most intimate relations. A young man returns in the face of crisis to the parents he once rejected. A divorced young woman dealing with slowly increasing despair develops an obsesion about a note that fell from the pocket of a man who came to eat in the café where she works. A wife whose husband has been shot must weather a terrible snowstorm with her two sons, as well as a storm of doubt about the extent of his involvement in a crime. Richard Bausch’s stories contend with transfixing themes: marital and familial estrangement, ways of trespass, the intractable mysteries and frights of daily life in these times, the uncertainty of knowledge and truth, the gulfs between friends and lovers, the frailty of even the most abiding love—while underlining throughout the persistence of love, the obdurate forces that connect us. His consummate skill, penetrating wit, and unfailing emotional generosity are on glorious display in this fine new collection.

“Subverts the simplistic sunshine/reggae/spliff-smoking image of Jamaica at almost every turn . . . with a rich interplay of geographies and themes.” —Los Angeles Times From Trench Town to Half Way Tree to Norbrook to Portmore and beyond, the stories of Kingston Noir shine light into the darkest corners of this fabled city. Joining award-winning Jamaican authors such as Marlon James, Leone Ross, and Thomas Glave are two “special guest” writers with no Jamaican lineage: Nigerian-born Chris Abani and British writer Ian Thomson. The menacing tone that runs through some of these stories is counterbalanced by the clever humor in others, such as Kei Miller’s “White Gyal with a Camera,” who softens even the hardest of August Town’s gangsters; and Mr. Brown, the private investigator in Kwame Dawes’s story, who explains why his girth works to his advantage: “In Jamaica a woman like a big man. She can see he is prosperous, and that he can be in charge.” Together—with more contributions from Patricia Powell, Colin Channer, Marcia Douglas, and Christopher John Farley—the outstanding tales in Kingston Noir comprise the best volume of short fiction ever to arise from the literary wellspring that is Jamaica. “Thoroughly well-written stories . . . fans of noir will enjoy this batch of sordid tales set in the sweltering heat of the tropics.” —Publishers Weekly “An eclectic and gritty mélange of tales that sears the imagination . . . Kingston Noir proves its worth as a quintessential piece of West Indian literature—rich, artistic, timeless, and above all, draped in unmistakable realism.” —The Gleaner (Jamaica)
