STANDALONE NOVELS

Dorian Bentley is the top international arms dealer in the world. His customers only know him by his moniker—The Wraith—a revenant whose trail is difficult to trace by government law enforcement authorities.

 

He has begun to cultivate his endgame, one that will have him turn over his expansive empire to one of his lieutenants and retire an ultra-rich man. He needs time—time he may no longer have—before everything comes crashing down.

 

Samara D'Acosta, the woman he’d given his heart to long ago despite keeping her at arm’s length for her own protection, is a part of those plans, but will her own secrets derail their happy ever after?

 

Love, Lust & Beautiful Liars is the latest explosive tale from national best-selling author, Shakir Rashaan, where the lines between lust and love blur, and where no one is who they seem.  

TERRELL WARREN IS A RISING STAR WITHIN THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY. BUOYED BY HIS EXPLOITS IN DESERT STORM, THE TWO-TERM SENATOR IS POISED TO ENTER RARIFIED AIR AS AN AFRICAN-AMERICAN POLITICIAN, POSSESSING THE CHARISMA, THE POLITICAL PEDIGREE, HIS OBAMA-ESQUE LOOKS—AND PICTURE-PERFECT WIFE BY HIS SIDE—THAT COULD HAVE HIM SITTING IN THE OVAL OFFICE AS COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF IN THE NOT-SO-DISTANT FUTURE.

FORCES IN THE SHADOWS WHO ARE NOT HAPPY WITH THE SENATORS' ASCENSION HAVE DEVISED THE PERFECT LEVERAGE TO DERAIL THE MOMENTUM OF THE POWERFUL STATESMAN, CENTERED AROUND THE ABDUCTION OF HIS NEWLYWED BRIDE. IT'S A RACE AGAINST THE CLOCK TO FIND HER, WHILE DEALING WITH THE POTENTIAL CONSEQUENCES SHOULD HE DECIDE NOT TO COMPLY WITH HER ABDUCTOR'S EXTRAORDINARY DEMAND—ONE THAT THREATENS TO REVERT AMERICAN FOREIGN POLICY TO THE PREVIOUS CENTURY'S "COLD WAR" HISTORY.

IN SERVICE TO THE SENATOR IS THE LATEST EXPLOSIVE TALE FROM BEST-SELLING AUTHOR SHAKIR RASHAAN, WHERE SOMETIMES, POLITICS MAKE THE STRANGEST OF BEDFELLOWS—AND ENEMIES.

'IF WE DO THE UNTHINKABLE, WOULD IT MAKE US LOOK CRAZY?"

UNTHINKABLE TAKES READERS ON A JOURNEY OF LOVE AND LUST, TRUST AND BETRAYAL, SPINNING A TALE OF LOVE UNEXPECTED...AND THE BEAUTY THAT EVOLVES BEYOND BOUNDARIES.

IF YOU TOOK A LOOK AT MY LIFE, YOU'D SWEAR I HAD IT ALL...

I'M THE BEST PLAYER ON THE BEST TEAM IN COLLEGE BASKETBALL AND A LOCK TO BE THE TOP PICK IN THE NBA DRAFT. I WAS ON THE FAST TRACK TO BEING COLLEGE BASKETBALL ROYALTY, AND NOTHING WAS GOING TO STOP ME FROM BEING ONE OF THE BEST EVER. 

WELL, NOTHING EXCEPT A TRAGIC ACCIDENT ON THE COURT THAT RESULTED IN MY WORST NIGHTMARE.

IN THE BLINK OF AN EYE, MY BASKETBALL LIFE WAS HANGING BY A THREAD--UNTIL HE CAME ALONG WITH AN OFFER I COULDN'T REFUSE. I KNEW HIS OFFER CAME WITH STRINGS ATTACHED, BUT WHAT I DIDN'T KNOW WAS WHAT I GAVE UP TO GET MY LIFE BACK.

IN HINDSIGHT, I SHOULDN'T HAVE DONE WHAT I DID, BUT IT WAS TOO LATE TO TURN BACK NOW.

I'M KEENAN ELLIS, AND I'M THE DEVIL'S ALL-AMERICAN.
