Series: Mistress #4

Introduced in Niobia Bryant’s bestselling Mistress series, he’s the ultimate irresistible temptation. And he’s always in control. Until now… Pleasure is his name, one that women whisper—and scream—with desire. As first a popular exotic dancer and then a top escort, he stokes his clients’ deepest longings and fulfills their every sexy fantasy. His climb has taken him from the streets’ most lethal ride-or-die ladies to the even more dangerous world of wealthy, powerful women. All along, he believed leveraging his chiseled body for a life of luxury would help him finally outrun his tormented childhood and bitter distrust… But now a mysterious woman he doesn’t recognize has him at her mercy, determined to punish him for reasons he doesn’t understand. Saving his own life means Pleasure must figure out which of the women from his past has a deadly obsession brought on by either the insatiable passions he ignited or the pain he caused. A secret he long since buried also arises– and even if he survives—facing it may give him a chance at real happiness—or destroy him?…

For more on the books, please visit my mainstream fiction page.

On a side note: The cover for Never Keeping Secrets has come a long way since the covers of Live and Learn and Show and Tell in 2008! lol.



 The official release date of Mistress No More is here. FINALLY, right? lol. Yes, I love it. Thank you to everyone out there hitting up the bookstores and waiting to receive their book in the mail.  Remember, if you do go to a store please check with a sales associate or manager if you do not see the book. They may have the book in the store-room and haven’t placed them on the shelves yet.  Also, they can order the book for you.

Again, I can not stress pre-ordering online enough. Some people received their books a couple of days early.

But however you buy it, in-store, on-line, via an e-reader, etc. I just thank you all for supporting me. And I can not wait for you all to read it so that we can discuss it.

Thanks so much! I am so excited about this book!!!!

REVIEWS: Mistress No More

Publishers WeeklyIn this dramatic story of friendship and betrayal, three wives cope with the fallout from a letter their ex-friend, Jessa
Bell, sent in Message from a Mistress, boasting that she was having an affair with one of the husbands. Unsure of their men, the three women let their marriages crumble, but eventually have to realize that the problem isn’t Jessa’s malice but their own insecurity. After the guilty husband is identified, Jessa plots to further destroy her former friends by revealing all their secrets, while they band together to rebuild their lives. Though much of the tale is as heavy-handed as naming the villain “Jezebel,” Bryant’s loyal audience will love the generous doses of passionate sex, glamour, and revenge. (June)–Pubisher’s Weekly http://publishersweekly.com/978-0-7582-3823-8

Bryant knows how to hook readers from the first line dangled into messy waters of betrayal, seduction, disappointment and falls from grace. Stinging dialogue, first-person revelations, remarkable character development and fast-paced drama heighten the thrill factor of MISTRESS NO MORE. When Jessa Bell doesn’t get the engagement ring she’s promised, she taunts her boyfriend’s wife with a cryptic text message. Problem is, she sends the same message to three women, all supposedly her close friends. This is definitely another fantastic, titillating novel by Bryant. –RT Book Reviews

“Bryant brought the drama and emotion with this sequel…very entertaining and a quick read…” – OOSA Online Book Club

“Sometimes the scenes were gut twisting funny, to heart wrenching intense which made this book a page turner from the very first line…” –African American on the Move Book Club (AAMBC)

“I was pleasantly surprised in reading a more in-depth novel, chock full of emotions from each character. All the unanswered questions were answered and I learned more about each character to really explain why each one acted the way they did. Author Niobia Bryant is an author who definitely knows how to tell a story and keep her readers engaged with her characters and the story-line.” – A Place of Our Own Book Club (APOOO)

“The writing is so good, the dialogue believable, and description so thorough. I love how Niobia takes these characters through hell and back, while entertaining us from beginning to the very end. Great job.” –Cydney Rax, author of Brothers & Wives
