Do we truly know who and what lives among us? What if a chance sexual encounter left you dead? In More Than Meets The Eye, they are among us, and some have evil intentions.
Belinda Wilson awakens one morning to find her body covered in scratches and bruises, with dried blood clinging to her skin, and knows that what is happening to her is more than just tricks of the mind. As the truth begins to unfold, Belinda discovers a centuries-old, untold secret living amongst the mortals in New York City. There is a community of demons, incubus, and succubus that may eventually destroy all mortals. Not only do they exist, but one of her best friends is one of them. Life gets even more complicated when Belinda learns that not all demons are what they appear to be. Some of them live a dual existence, intent on survival, yet striving to coexist, without harming human life. But, there are others that have evil intentions and are looking to populate the world with even more of their kind, enslaving humans in a sexual twist of need and desire that leaves mortals painfully ill and often dead. Can anyone stop them?
Color Me Grey dares to ask two startling questions: “What would you do if you had everything you ever wanted and found out the person you trusted most was trying to steal it all from you?” And, “what if two sexual encounters left you with two separate babies—twins—from two different fathers; one obviously black and one obviously white?” While it is a fictional account, it also provides a rare opportunity to peek inside of a rare but true medical occurrence; the fact that two percent of fraternal twins that are born each year are born to one mother—AND TWO DIFFERENT FATHERS.
Beautiful mahogany-skinned Bridget Grey finds herself locked in a vicious nightmare when she becomes pregnant. Despite the fact that her husband is black, she gives birth to twins—a girl named Jasmine, dark-skinned with dark hair and eyes, and blond-haired, blue-eyed Jacob.
In an attempt to piece together the remnants of her life, Bridget discovers a trail of betrayal that started when she was a young child living at a group home—a trail that starts and ends with Jade Smith. With Jade holding secrets over Bridget’s head, Bridget’s back is against the wall, leaving her feeling utterly hopeless.
