Not your average poetry. These are stories—stories from the heart and soul.

The contradictions and play on words bring new life to the stanzas as they leap off the pages and tug at your emotions.

Review: Secret Places Revealed

Secret Places Revealed Secret Places Revealed by Paulette Harper
My rating: 0 of 5 stars

Simone Herron is a woman who still mourns the death of her fiance years later. As with any woman in mourning, it is hard to love again as you hold onto dear life of the memories of that loved one. Deciding she needs a change, she moves across the country in hopes of rebuilding her life and finally moving forward. In moving forward, she meets Aaron Blackman. A man with a guarded heart. What do you get when you have two people with guarded emotions? A whirlwind of mixed feelings and a strong need for spiritual guidance.

Secret Places Revealed is an inspirational romance. It builds upon the fact that prayer can help you tear down the walls that you couldn't even break without God in your life. Love is stronger than any addiction but at what costs? Will Aaron and Simone be able to help each other move forward or will they walk away from each other?

As you read this romance, you will feel a connection with these characters. You will gain some knowledge yourself as Scriptures are quoted and then they are applied to Aaron and Simone's situation.

This is definitely a page turner and you will not be disappointed.

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.

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.”
“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.

Crimson Lyrics by C.b. Roberts

Crimson Lyrics
by C.b. Roberts

If you’ve ever experienced the pain of unrequited love or the heartbreak of giving your soul to the wrong person, this collection is a must read.

Crimson Lyrics is the second collection of poems by master poet, C.b. Roberts. He rivals Poe with his use of metaphors and contradictions, sucking you into the vortex of dark, angry, confused longing for unreturned love. The way he goes from absolute acceptance to complete refusal to surrender in just a few stanzas, astounds me. Just when you think you know where he’s going with a poem, he kicks you in the heart with an ending you didn’t see coming. All of them affected me in some way, especially Escape, Lament, and Shackled. But the title poem, Crimson Lyrics, gutted me, and Tonight completely destroyed me. This is not a collection for the faint of heart as there is no happily ever after. But if you’ve ever experienced the pain of unrequited love or the heartbreak of giving your soul to the wrong person, it is a must read. 5 Stars!
