Mainstream


Mainstream often has several sub-plots, looks at life, prejudices, irony, etc. and features social issues or themes. The writing style is emphasized and it may veer into making statements about our culture or society of the time. Any romance is described subtly instead of vividly, with much detail left to the reader's imagination. If the book is not romance, it may or may not have a HEA/HFN.

If you come from Michigan with nothing but snow and ice at Christmas time, what do you expect in the heat of Florida in December, hot decorations and hot love? Gigi had given up on being happy when everything and everyone she cared for had been jerked out of her life, leaving her shattered. Three years later, she was transferred from Michigan to Florida. She ignored the handsome manager she had to work with. She ignored her co-workers who laughed through Thanksgiving while they looked forward to Christmas. Gigi grunted in disgust because they even decorated their silly palm trees since there weren’t many pine trees in front of the home in Sarasota. But fate always seemed to have a plan.

Timing is everything when it comes to love, especially when it’s so far off. Luis Flynn has been fighting depression off and on most of his life. He figures it’s genetic or a product of his childhood or something. Whatever it is, he thought he’d won the war between himself and depression, until it seems to come back again. Little by little over the course of a few months, Luis finds himself slipping further and further into that black hole. He’s also had a crush on Royce, his boss, since the day he met him, not that he would ever admit it. Luis can tell Royce finds him attractive, and they even kiss, but Royce constantly pushes him away, which doesn’t help his inner struggles. When it comes to relationships, timing is everything. With Luis and Royce, the timing might be too off.

A thirty-something professional woman takes advice from her well-meaning friends and quirky co-workers to decide whether to stay with her sexy, if somewhat boring, partner or risk leaving him for the promise of the true love she once thought she’d have but somehow had lost. We all love a villain in a romantic break-up but what if there isn’t one? In fact what if everything seems just fine but not absolutely, weak-at your knees, mind-blowingly fabulous—should you stay or should you go? This is the dilemma facing Jessica Tiller who begins to realise that Ben, the man she thought was her manicorn (a sensitive, sexy and soulful man—in other words, for most people: imaginary), is in fact just an extremely nice bloke. And her past, as well as her long-time friend, David, are starting to push her in a whole new unexpectedly sexier direction. When friends Stella and Minh’s blossoming romance and upcoming wedding makes commitment look pretty good, for Jessica it’s decision time. While Ben is busy working out with his gym buddy and resident office stunner, Elise, Jess turns to her best friend, happily married mother of two, Laura, who provides a wealth of experienced advice as does the gay sisterhood of Tiffany and Kristan. But when it comes to the crunch it’s up to Jessica to decide to what and to whom to commit. This humorous story is for those torn between the security of a totally inoffensive long-term relationship and the promise of the romance you once thought you’d have but you somehow lost.

Violence has always solved most of his problems, but it can’t help him win over a man whose whole life is surrounded by things that scare him. Brad Flynn had a rough start to life. With an abusive father and an addiction problem, his life hasn’t been easy. He has always been the resident bad ass and the town drunk. Even when he gets sober and becomes an upstanding member of the community, it doesn’t seem to change the town’s mind about him. If it weren’t for his two brothers, he would have no one. His past doesn’t make having a love life easy either, but when he meets Kendrick Ashby, the local bar owner, he wants to give it a try. The only problem is Kendrick has his own problems, ones that make having a violent boyfriend impossible. Both have to decide if dating is even worth a try.

Marissa’s belief, revenge never ends until all the players are dead, or one left standing, becomes fact when enemies from her past re-emerge seeking vengeance. It’s the social unrest era of mid-nineteen-sixties Philadelphia. For Marissa Wells, a young black woman, surviving increasing gang violence trumps civil rights, with good reason. Gang culture is part of her lifestyle, affiliation that molds character, skews ethics, and leads to her brutal assault. Marissa retaliates, and her lover forfeits his life saving hers. Guilt-ridden, she severs all ties and moves away. Her mistake―she leaves enemies alive to retaliate. Transitioning from segregation to integration, she settles in California, meets Tristan Corbett, a white southerner, discovers love is colorblind, and happiness is fleeting. Marissa’s past starts intruding on her present. Enemies re-emerge, jeopardizing her new life. To eliminate the threat and cycle of revenge, aware she might die trying, she lures her nemesis into a confrontation. This is a previous release.

A flight delay, a hotel room and a four hour foreplay… With their flight delayed for several hours, exhausted office colleagues Brenda James and Steven Travis agree to book an airport hotel room to nap before their rescheduled flight. Steven’s kiss once inside the room sparks a passion both had been secretly fantasizing about for years. But will Brenda’s strictly stipulated terms for their lovemaking allow them to make the most of this one time only opportunity that the two will have to fulfill all their wildest dreams for each other?  Forty-three year old Brenda tells her forty-one year old lover that they can enjoy sex for the hours they have to be alone in the hotel. For Brenda it will fulfill a pact she and her husband had made to compensate for his one-time infidelity to her. But it must be limited to one assignation and one orgasm that matched that of the husband’s infidelity.  As their lovemaking begins, Brenda and Steven learn never before experienced ways of stimulating themselves physically, emotionally and intellectually, while stopping just short of climax on multiple occasions. The extended lovemaking culminates in one titanic orgasm that transports both to new planes of consciousness. It leaves them acknowledging they are soulmates forever, though they will never be able to be together again like this. They leave the room with a deeper understanding of themselves and a fuller embrace of the separate lives they will be living.

The only problem is, for once in Andrew’s life, one night isn’t enough. When a serial rapist starts hurting women, Andrew’s life gets even more complicated than if he’d stayed in the city.

But when she surfaces, she doesn't return home to the loving arms of her family. Instead, she heads straight to the FBI offering information that will destroy the Cambridge crime family.

The very man who could end her life, if he were to discover her secret. Hands tied, Alex must stand back, for the good of the team, and watch the tragedy play out.
