Beast: Former hip-hop artist Ebony "The Beast" Trent has wrapped her persona around herself like a protective wall of bitterness. Belinda Jansen is confident, intelligent, sexy, and--to Ebony's fascination--not the least bit intimidated by Ebony's beastly demeanor. Can Beauty truly tame The Beast?

Awaken: Local celebrity chef Chayse Carmichael has achieved a level of success she'd only imagined while learning to cook. But when free-spirited Georgia peach Serena Frasier walks into her restaurant, Chayse realizes that success doesn't always bring happiness if you don't have someone special to share it with. Does love at first sight truly exist?

Stiletto: Music mogul Cass Phillips barely has a moment to sleep, let alone build a relationship. But an unexpected encounter with shoe designer Faith Shaw leads her to believe that maybe fairy tales do come true. Can true love really conquer all?

Six women find themselves in their own real-life fairy tales, when true love finds them in the most unexpected ways.

Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Shade (Deepest Desire) twines together three sensual novellas, each based on a classic fairy tale and centering black lesbian love. "Beast" sees Ebony "The Beast" Trent--a former hip-hop star turned music producer with a reputation as a tough, intimidating womanizer--fall for her mother-figure's take-no-nonsense live-in nurse, who refuses to be cowed by Ebony's prickly exterior. Both women's tempers run hot but their chemistry is just as combustible, making for a fast-paced, steamy love story. "Awaken," the collection's weakest entry, focuses on Ebony's best friend, Harlem chef Chayse Carmichael, whose crush on one of her regulars, Serena, takes an unexpected turn when she learns the woman has been attacked and fallen into a coma. Frequent visits to the hospital bond Chayse with Serena's family long before the women can develop a strong connection themselves, making it difficult to believe their instant love when Serena wakes up. In "Stiletto," Ebony's business partner, Cass Phillips, takes a forced vacation to the Caribbean where she meets shoe designer Faith, who is there to scatter her mother's ashes and evade her con artist stepfather. The women instantly connect, but a misunderstanding following a passionate night together leads Faith to flee, leaving behind only a pair of red stilettos. The fairy tale connections put a fun, creative spin on these quick outings. Readers looking for sweet and spicy lesbian romance will be pleased. (Mar.)"
