Each week on this blog we spotlight a series or collections of books from Authors or an author. This week series Spotlight is to highlight a popular Kimani author. As most of us know HQR has decided to end 4 lines that shows that they don’t want to solve the diversity problem that most Romance Readers encounter. I will be letting my voice be heard this year in RWA. Harlequin and other book companies must recognize that readers don’t just love just white men but Asian, Black, Hispanic men. I want all women short tall round tan dark and all the colors of the rainbow to find their HEA. Not just this model type woman all REAL women. I want to see acceptance of the love that is part of my reality reflected in my books.

Until someone sets out to sabotage the upcoming nuptials-and Landry becomes the prime suspect.
