Until one careless moment knocks her carefully choreographed life into chaos.

Laura Warren loves her husband Erik unconditionally. She has made many sacrifices in the name of that love. Those sacrifices include the decision to put her professional career on hold so that she could focus solely, on being a devoted wife. But after six years of marriage, Laura has begun to feel that Erik is detaching. She fears that he may be stepping out on her, and involving himself in extramarital activities. Initially, Laura dismisses the lingering thoughts of deception. However, the pull of intuition is far greater than her desire to turn the other cheek. Ready or not, she decides that she can no longer run from the nagging feeling that something is wrong. She has to know . . .
Enter Brooklyn Kellogg, the beautiful owner of the Pandora’s Box agency. While Brooklyn’s motto is, “Innocent until proven filthy,” she knows that the ‘filthy’ is usually the end result. Brooklyn, who knows a thing or two about being the woman scorned, founded Pandora’s Box so that she could help the unsuspecting get to the bottom of the lies. With her trusted security team and beautiful decoys, Brooklyn’s business is the business of bringing a cheater’s lying ways out into the open.
Going into Pandora’s Box, Laura hopes for the best . . . but prepares for the worst. What will the end result be? Will it be a case of intuition gone wrong, or will Laura’s suspicions be positively confirmed?

She got a murder.
If You Like a Sleuth With Attitude
You’ll Love Kadence MacBride
Following a breakup of 268 days, 12 hours and 23 minutes, Kadence MacBride has messed up and knows it, so she swallows her pride and makes a surprise visit to the Caribbean to try and reconcile with her boyfriend Terrence.
Unfortunately for her, Terrence has moved on and is about to marry hootchie-momma Barbie.
Unfortunately for him, the wedding is called because of death when his bride to be is found strangled. Instead of saying I do, the police believe Terrence did, commit the murder that is. Since suspects on the island are more likely to see the inside of a coffin than a courtroom, Kadence has to help.
They conduct their investigation in the midst of what the tourist bureau deems civil unrest, but plain folks call riots. With no phone, no lights and no motor car, they’re more stranded than Gilligan. On the run, stripped of their tourist status, the real murderer is closing in.
Unfortunately for them, it looks like the only way they’ll ever leave the island will be in a pine box.

“People called me Harlem. I dubbed myself after that dangerous neighborhood that I’d never seen. I read life is rough in Harlem, and a black man isn’t expected to live to see twenty-five. I was twenty-three. The clock was ticking.”
When Harlem gets off on a murder charge due to insanity, the asylum he’s sent to feels worse than death, with one exception: the beautiful nurse Daphane. As their relationship grows, so do the stakes: she has the ability to help him escape, and he has the ability to set her free from her abusive relationship. Yet Harlem has one big secret: he was perfectly sane when he committed his crime. But in the end, Daphane’s own secret may be the deadliest of all. . . .
Includes an excerpt from Eric’s upcoming novel, Before We Were Wicked, coming April 2019. Harlem was previously published in the 2006 anthology Voices from the Other Side.
