Some mornings, Sara Chambers wakes in bed next to her girlfriend and her girlfriend’s lover wondering how she ended up there. Beautiful, successful, and a force to be reckoned with at her Atlanta law firm, Sara is still powerless in her attraction to the rebellious and reckless, Rille Thompson.

As college girlfriends, Sara and Rille’s relationship had been incendiary, burning away Sara’s innocence and self-respect even as it widened her world beyond her wildest imagination. Now, almost twenty years later, Rille still pushes Sara beyond her limits, bringing a third lover into their bed and domestic lives when their monogamy gets stale. The hold Rille has over Sara—and their new lover—becomes as powerful as it is dangerous. Can Sara pull herself free in time, or will her life turn to cinders in the wake of Rille’s powerful flame?

It’s the final test for our favorite Freedom University Alums. Lives have been turned upside down as they left the comforts of campus life for the real world and all of the adventures that come with it. Although their lives have taken major turns changing the futures they dreamed of in college, life is good and relationships are strong.

Lena realizes how fast time flies when you are raising a child. It’s been two years since she decided to take time away from all her drama to find herself and focus on the child she was carrying. But the present finds her staring at images of Denise, Hollywood’s up and coming star and the love who got away. With her child away, Lena now has time to play. Will she finally move on to someone new, or truly go after the one she’s wanted all along.

Denise has learned that there is more to Hollywood than fame and fortune. The dark side of fame rears its ugly face as Denise’s star grows brighter and Farih’s starts to dim. All eyes are on this “It” couple, including the eyes of Lena. With the past reappearing in her life, Denise finds herself torn between loving the one who has given her the real, stable relationship she’s always wanted, and the chaotic love that her heart just doesn’t want to let go of.

Cooley always knew she would be a force to be reckoned with in the entertainment industry; but never in a million years did she think she would be in a committed relationship, and happy. Now managing two of the hottest up and coming lesbian stars in the world, her life is right on track – until a secret comes out that could derail all she’s worked for, and threaten her relationship and even more importantly, her friendships.

Misha pictured her life as a independent, jetsetter – not as a housewife, cooking, cleaning and running after a toddler. It’s amazing what people are willing to give up for love. Watching her ex live the life she pictured for herself, the temptation to pursue her dreams and revisit the life she abandoned might just get the best of her.

Carmen wants one thing, the perfect “royal wedding” to the love of her life Nic. While her friends live fabulously in Atlanta, she’s stuck in Memphis in a teaching job she despises. While Nic is perfectly happy with the average life they have created together, Carmen wants more. And her caviar wishes could destroy her relationship dreams.

The future is bright and sunny for the crew but there are storm clouds ahead filled with unfinished business from the past that could threaten all they have worked for in life and love. Their relationships and friendships have never been so vigorously tested. And as Carmen and Nic’s wedding approaches, will skeletons in their closets wreck the worlds they have created, or will everything finally come full circle?

Can exes be friends? The answer to this question is tested and revealed in The EXchange, the third installment in the story of Kyla. When readers first met Kyla, she was a confused young woman struggling with her sexuality. By the time we met her again, she was a loose philanderer, bed-hopping in her search for love. She found it with the beautiful, no-nonsense Asia. After nine years of solid commitment, Kyla is bored with the monotony and simplicity of their day-to-day relationship. She soon finds the excitement she craves, but not in the right place. Angie, her ex turned longtime friend, is single again, and she’s ready and willing to fill the void Kyla feels. Will Kyla trade the stability she has with Asia for the passion she’s been missing?
