Miguel’s blood heated as she gave him a wavering smile. She was just too beautiful, with clear skin marked only by a dark mole at the corner of her nose, angled dark eyes and full lickable lips.
“I mean,” Tanya continued, “I won’t even be able to recognize the place when it’s completed. Everything sounds incredible, but I may have to draw the line at the cages for dancers.”
He thought she might. “Trust me, if we charge people to dance in them, they will pay. The one rule is that they have to keep their clothes on.”
“We’ll see.” She stared at the screen again with her eyes unblinking “Um…” She rubbed the back of her neck and a light sheen of sweat broke out on her forehead. “How much will this cost?”
Now for the heavy convincing. He got up and stood beside her to point at the CCTV screen showing the dance area, which had filled up a little more in the hour they’d been going over his ideas. “I can see this place packed, people waiting all the way up the street trying to get in. VIP area filled with actors, musicians and pro athletes flying in to experience it.”
Unable to resist, he leaned close so they were almost cheek to cheek. Her heat and honeysuckle perfume floated into him, and he turned his head so his starving lips could caress her one more time. He kissed along her jaw until he met the sensitive area of her neck, where he teased her with gentle nips until she moaned. She sprang as far away from him as the room would allow.
What had he been thinking? Why did she affect him this way? She took away his willpower like no other woman had ever done. Thinking became almost impossible when she was around. The desire to smooth his hands over her incredibly silky soft skin drove him to get closer, but he stayed rooted to the spot, watching her rub the goose pimples from her arms.
“Answer the question, Miguel.” He was pleased to hear her voice quiver. “How much will it cost?”
He’d rather discuss the turbulent heat swirling between them, but if she wanted to ignore it then he should, too. “You’ve heard the saying that you have to spend money to make money, right?”
Her slow nod brought her hair forward. He watched as she brushed back the strand she wanted to filter his fingers through, bringing her close so they could fall into the attraction drawing them together.
Title: Seduced Hearts
Author: Stella Eromonsere-Ajanaku

Reason for reading: Verified Purchase. (love a good romance)
Is a lovely marriage enough?
Ghanaian designer, Efua Flonta has a marriage and a life many women dream of. Her heart lies with her racy husband, Xavier and two young children. Her marriage vows are sacred until she meets a man who threaten everything she holds dear.
Sexy formula one racing champion, Xavier Flonta wants nothing more than to please his beautiful wife and children. When an old friend stops over, he does not bargain for one weekend of trouble. Will Efua and Xavier pull together to save their marriage in time for Christmas or will the hurt be too painful?
Marriage can be a beautiful experience or journey if all the cards are played right and the partners involved love each other genuinely. For Efua and Xavier Flonta, everything is perfect, or so it seems. They both have damaging secrets that even their steamy nights and days cannot overshadow.
I read this book overnight. Fast paced just like the formula one driving Xavier, full speed and when I finished I knew I had really landed with a whoosh. 🙂
Stella has written a romance that makes one question the validity of one’s marriage vows especially in the face of such agonising and explosive revelations by the parties. But in the end, forgiveness becomes vital to keep the marriage together.
What is striking about Seduced Hearts is the strong extended family links. In Ghana, we say when you marry a person, you marry the whole family; Xavier and Efua have strong links to their extended families and the two entities are pivotal in the reconciliation, though in the end, Xavier and Efua have to fight their own demons, come to terms with their flaws and ultimately decide to let love prevail. Yes, as I mention flaw, let me add that both characters are nicely flawed and that make them human. Did I love the characters? Hmm, Xavier is my man, and when you read the book you will know why. 🙂
I give Seduced Hearts five ‘heart-shaped’ stars and highly recommend it to all lovers of romance and those who are interested in knowing about Ghana

Title: Forest Girl
Author: Empi Baryeh
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publication Date: May 6,2018
Publishers: Independent Publishing with Createspace
Reasons for Reading: Advanced Review Copy for a candid review
Esi Afriyie has been in love with Michael Yaw Badu since childhood. When he receives a scholarship to study in America, all hope seems lost … until he returns to Ghana ten years later. An arranged marriage contracted by their families makes her dreams come true, but does the reality of being Mrs. Michael Badu live up to the fantasy? Michael may have married Esi, but he is in love with someone else—Forest Girl, a mystery woman he encountered just once in the forest. His heart belongs to her, and he doesn’t need his beautiful wife awakening his carnal desires. He is even willing to sacrifice his marriage for another encounter with Forest Girl. Reality is not what either Esi or Michael imagined. Esi is disillusioned; Michael feels trapped. Will Michael give in and allow his heart to discover a love that was always meant to be, before it’s too late?
Forest Girl is Empi Baryeh’s third romance book to be set in Ghana, and it can only get better and better. Empi knows her characters well, perhaps because she is from Ghana herself and she knows our lore and tradition, which are generously woven into the beautiful story that is Michael and Esi’s arranged marriage. I mean which man would agree to an arranged marriage even in a traditional setting? And a modern, US educated man at that. And yet Michael yields to pressure from the ghost of his father whose dying wish was for his son to marry a suitable girl chosen by him. Never mind that he has a ‘modern liberated’ girl friend, never mind that he hates the whole arrangement. Never mind that he had fallen for a mysterious Forest Girl, despite the very loud existence of his girlfriend. And never mind that Esi has been in love with him for a long time.
The beauty of this book is that the author managed to maneuver the ups and downs, surprises, twists and turns of this unusual relationship, keeping the reader in suspense till the end.
To be honest, both characters got on my nerves; Michael, for not willing or being able to make up his mind as to whom he wanted; Esi for being too sweet and trusting. But as the story developed, Esi, an educated girl from the village, proved that she could stand her own ground, especially when it became clear that she might be sharing her husband with Lena, Michael’s girlfriend. She refused to be treated like a doormat.
One significant feature about Forest Girl, among many, is that the reader is made aware that marriage is never a bed perfect, more so an arranged one. The author does a very good job here; dealing with infidelity in marriage and the presence of an imaginary woman, ingredients that no new wife should contend with in her marriage. Both characters grow to confront their limitations and Michael especially grows into the man he is supposed to be.
Forest Girl is well researched, the diction and editing, flawless. The flavour of Ghana and for that matter, Africa, permeates it. Rich customs and traditions, local foods, snippets of local dialect, well imbibed local drinks, lush and harsh scenery of village life are a fine blend that set the tone in this novel, Forest Girl.
The only problem I have with Forest Girl is that I would have loved to know the outcome of the job interview Esi attended. This however did not detract from the story or the development of the plot in any way.
Forest Girl is a truly lovely romance journey into Ghana that I urge all lovers of romance to take. 🙂

“Did I scare you?” Adam joked from behind Letitia while they both kicked out their legs softly to keep afloat in the swimming pool.
She shook her head to dislodge water from her ears. “Not really. I wondered who had the nerve to hold me from behind.”
Swirling around to face him, she watched him flick both hands over his wet hair and his eyes grinned at her.
“How old are you?” he mouthed just as two men raced past doing the front crawl with their arms under water.
Lifting her hands out of the water, she pushed her hair out of her face. “All of twenty-nine.”
Floating closer to where she was, he chuckled. “You don’t look a day older than twenty-three.”
Even though she knew he was being a gentleman, she giggled as warmth crept up her neck.
It felt good to receive such glowing compliment from a man who wanted nothing from her. He hardly knew her.
“Thank you. I feel twenty-nine for sure.”
“What does that even mean?” His lips formed into a wide grin as if he had no clue what she meant.
Three young men swam past, but one of them winked at her as he lifted his head to take in air.
Adam had his back to them, so he did not notice.
And she tried not to grin. “You know, like I don’t feel the same as I did when I was fifteen. And you, how old do you feel?”
With one arm, he circled her waist and he led her to the pool edge. “Swimming here with you now I feel like I’m eighteen again. But I’m only thirty-five.”
He hauled himself to sit on the poolside.
“Come and sit beside me,” he told her giving her his hand to help her up the side of the pool.
She took his hand and she joined him on the cool tiles. “I would not have guessed your age. I thought you were under thirty.”
For her accolade, he caressed her shoulders with two fingers and made his way toward her neck. She skewed her head as she burst out giggling.
Already, sweet tickles dripped from his fingers through her cleavage with far too much speed.
Feeling self-conscious at his closeness, she tightened the rope of her bikini top and bottom when she stopped laughing.
“It feels good to hear you say that, Letitia. Are you dating actively at the moment?”
For several seconds she stared at him wide-eyed. Adam’s gaze was relentless as he waited for her reply.
“I’m keeping that close to my chest.” She got a kick out of needling him since she just found out he had man-sized jealous bones in his sculpted body.
“Don’t make me crawl through your chest in search of my answer.” The words spoken gruffly carried an underlying threat.
Unable to contain her shock, her eyes sparkled with excitement. “Not in front of everyone, you wouldn’t, Adam.”
When he leaned forward, his eyes assured her he intended to carry out his threat, so she promptly changed her response.
“Okay. I’m dating.”
No emotion flashed through his face as he asked. “Are you seeing someone in particular?”

Title: The Justice
Author: Boakyewaa Glover
Genre: Political Thriller
Publisher: Minds on Fire Group
Publication Date: 2013
Reason for reading: Reasons for reading: Bought the book after it came highly recommended by a friend.
For his entire life, former Chief Justice Joseph Annan has his eyes on his country’s top prize: the presidency of Ghana. And this time, he will stop at nothing to ensure the title is his alone. But can he stop his world from falling apart in the process? The Justice: God. Country. Family. is Boakyewaa Glover’s searing political thriller that follows a career politician in his last gasp for the highest honor, as friends, foes, and family are embroiled is his relentless, no-holds-barred play for power. It’s a gripping contemporary look at Ghana culture that is sure to enthrall political enthusiasts, as well as fans of romantic fiction and mystery thrillers.
After four years in semi-retirement, the esteemed justice has put in his bid to be the next president of Ghana. Beloved throughout the country, Annan is widely celebrated as a principled, strong leader, who is intensely dedicated to his country. However, the long-adored icon harbors secrets that begin to surface soon after his bid, and that he must utterly suppress if he is to land the top position. At his side is his razor-sharp Chief of Staff Caleb Osei, whose commitment to the cause is unflappable, and the most powerful advocate of all, his best friend and former President Samuel Yara.
However, friends and allies withstanding, the justice faces challenges are equally formidable. His wife Adubea is emotionally unhinged after finding her twin sister murdered, and must be managed with constant medication and a close watch. His daughter Abby presents her own thick brew of problems. She has become entangled in a scandalous affair with the married Reyn Proctor, the scion of a wealthy corporation. Abby’s ties with him would no doubt point the finger at government corruption, and erupt in a media flap that would upend the campaign. And, there are past deeds involving the justice himself that have never been fully explained.
As the stakes rise ever higher, the justice finds his carefully woven public persona unraveling before his own eyes. With a high-octane pace and page-turning intrigue, The Justice: God. Country. Family. provides a rare view of the forces at play in contemporary Ghana that will leave readers hungry to piece together the fragments of deception. It’s riveting reading packed with spellbinding action, steamy romance, and a sizable dose of drama, Ghana-style.
The blurb above highlights quite a lot to be expected in the book, in my opinion. But it does not mention how volatile the plot is. Boakyewaa Glover’s novel, The Justice, set in Ghana and the US, has all the ingredients present in a fast paced, gripping, tense and explosive thriller, and a political one at that; power, money, sex, corruption, murder, love, hatred, jealousy and revenge. And these ingredients are well mixed, a veritable salad. Sensational.
If I had read The Justice about ten years back or more, I would very much have doubted the plausibility of the plot. Not today, in this present-day Ghana. Politics has become exciting, dangerous, full of adrenaline and scandals involving sexual escapades of politicians, blackmail and counter blackmail and very much lately, the adventurism of some Chinese nationals in our oil and mining ventures, as well as in the bedrooms of the power brokers. Boakyewaa Glover has written a blockbuster!
Ms Glover’s characters are powerful and passionate, believing in the causes that drive them. Whether those causes are justified is left for the reader to find out. They are also flawed, with dark sides to their nature that will make your jaw drop. And they are human too. Love these characters or hate them; the reader can’t help but feel empathy. The twist at the end of the novel is so mind-blowing it has me reeling for days.
My only beef with the The Justice is I don’t particularly like Abby, daughter of former Chief Justice Joseph Annan. Abby is one of the main characters in the novel and I find myself gasping at some of her decisions and behaviour wishing she would just grow up. Did she?
Ms Glover’s novel The Justice is a must read for all. A very well-researched novel, with settings clearly described and real. An honest and punchy novel dealing with the powerful forces of politics and the passions and greed that drive the human being, even at the highest levels of government. How far can a human being go to achieve his aim of serving God, Country and Family? Please, read The Justice available at Amazon
Boakyewaa Glover is the author of three novels: Circles (2009), The Justice (2013), and Tendai (2013). She also maintains a blog that features her short stories, poems, articles, and movie reviews.

Title: A Time To Part
Author: Ama Pomaa
Genre: Inspirational Fiction/Inspirational Romance/Romantic Suspense
Publisher: Hetura books
Publication Date: 29th July, 2017
Reason for reading: Reasons for reading: Received this book as an advanced review copy for a candid review. (Note: a small fee was charged for this service)
When the pain is all you have, letting go is not an option.
Seven years ago, Jasmine left everything she knew behind. Her mother had killed herself, her father was terminally ill, and she had broken off with Hagan, the only man who ever loved her. It was the perfect time to start over. Except she never did part with any of it!
When a tragic incident forces her back into the past, she’ll have to decide if letting go is too high a price to pay for everything she wants.
Ama Pomaa’s debut book, A Time To Part, is fast paced, griping and full of suspense. The plot unfolds as you read along, with the suspense and intrigue building up and sustained very well till the end. The story telling is crisp, sharp and witty so much so that the pathos, poignant and profound sentiments running through the book appear somewhat subdued. Reading the book, I find myself equally angry, disbelieving, sad, and yes redeemed at the end. A family’s dysfunctional tendencies, with far-reaching consequences on its members seem to suggest that evil does not pay; this also underpins the book’s Christian or inspirational message.
The main plot evolves round Jasmine and Hagan, whose budding relationship is torn apart by hatred, jealousy, deceit, and familial betrayal. A subplot or a story within a story, involves Kojo, Jasmine’s brother and Doris, their houshelp. But the author skilfully weaves the subplot into the major plot and any awkwardness in the development of the full story is eased away by the seamless cohesion.
Jasmine is hurting bad. So bad to forget what has been done to her when she was a child. And she has secrets too, secrets that push her into the dingy hole of a brothel to satisfy the craving in her for expiation. She thinks her only redemption is in saving Selase, Hagan’s 12-year-old sister, from a fate that is worse than her own, for she has been there and knows the score. Will Hagan be able to forgive Jasmine, who has destroyed his life in a most unimaginable way and now comes back into his life at a time when he least expects? Will Jasmine even want to set aside her prejudice and receive his forgiveness? Will the two forgive each other in time to save Selase?
Kojo’s inaction, cowardice and inability to stand up for the truth in defence of his sister leads to a rift between him and Jasmine. He goes through a hard time to find redemption. Again his irresponsible behaviour as a youth and careless ill-treatment of Doris the house help, haunts him, with far-reaching repercussions on his life.
Hagan and Doris believe in the goodness and forgiving power of God. Hagan, a medical doctor is conflicted about his feelings for Jasmine and the pain of her betrayal which keeps haunting him. When Jasmine’s quest to save his sister Selase goes awry he relies on his communion with God to forgive her and move on with his life.
Doris comes across as a saint in the book. Do saints really exist? Perhaps so as the author seems to suggest that the healing touch of Christ can have such impact on a person who has been dehumanised just like Kojo does to Doris.
Jasmine and Kojo coming from the same background of wealth and deceit find it difficult, in their own way, to let go of their past. Kojo, haunted by his misdeeds, feels he does not deserve anything good. He is also out for blood to avenge the death of his wife, even though he thinks her death is karma working against him.
Jasmine has lots of scars that drive her life. And as she continues to make one mistake after the other in her education and career choices, and even in her new mission of saving Selase, it takes grace and the love of the one man she has hurt to make her confront her demons and to reconcile with her past.
Ama Pomaa’s characters are well-rounded and authentic and yet flawed with human foibles, as they go though tribulations that define their actions and decisions, which shape them into finding redemption. The main heroine, Jasmine is a strong woman, determined to forge her own path, whether good or bad. Despite her past tribulations, she does not crumble. Perhaps it is this singular strength and sense of purpose that sustains her throughout the novel as she finds herself ultimately.
Through riveting and yet crisp narrative and dialogue, the author is able to portray the effects and far-reaching repercussion incest, rape, adultery, lies, deceit, and dishonesty can have on a family. The reader is carried along throughout the novel, on a suspenseful journey of self discovery of the major characters. The reader would also be shocked into realising that not all the characters seem to be what they are. As the author seems to suggest, one cannot be certain of anything in this world, except the love of Christ.
Ama Pomma’s ability to dissect thorny themes of murder, rape and incest in her book without sounding raw and weepy should be commended. Not a mean feat. Though a Christian or inspirational novel, A Time To Part can also be classified under the Christian Romance genre. The author strivers not to sound preachy and didactic and she achieves this very nicely.
A Time To Part is well researched book, the author knows her characters and settings so well. I also find the cover to be stunning. 🙂 My only issue with the book is why Hagan delays in taking his sister from the home of her guardian when he is in a position to do so. That does not make sense to me. I must add that this does not detract from the story in any way. It is just a minor issue with me.
I recommend A Time To Part for all lovers of suspense, romance and inspirational books, and indeed lover of literature.
Ama Pomaa is a writer by night and an Engineer by day. She lives in Accra with her three sisters, managing an addiction to novels and writing stories that touch on God’s love and societal issues she’s passionate about. A Time to Part is her first novel.

“The question is why would a magistrate judge be spotted dancing on a bar table in nothing but a bra and thong in one of Europe’s beach clubs? And then appear serious on Monday morning in a London courtroom wearing a wig and black gown?” While he waited for her answer, he took a passing look around her chambers.
Thick, leather-bound books graced wooden shelves on every side, but the room was immaculate and clean. Grey carpets complimented the beige upper walls. The gold and black name plaque on the desk indicated her name was District Judge Ronke Oni.
“What I do with my time is none of your business,” Ronke snapped as she swiveled around. But a sly grin wired her full lips as she got up on her feet. Gone was the dark gown. And so was the funny wig. Now, her silky white ruffled top fell wide open, enough for him to see the swell of her cleavage.
Peeling his eyes away from her chest was not easy, but he tried. With the black skirt suit plastered around her body so tight, she looked like a bomb waiting to explode. Electric currents flashed through his body and he laughed to quench the upsurge. Up close, she looked a little older than he’d thought, still, she was a raving beauty.
“And what was it you wanted from the dancer?” Ronke asked with her arms folded beneath her busts, pushing her breasts further out of her top. And for a fleeting second, he wondered if she wedged her full breasts with a lacy bra.
“Are you kidding me, Ma’am? You’re not going to deny the fact you’re an erotic dancer over the weekend and a learned woman during the week?”
With her butt perched against her curved walnut desk and her legs crossed at the ankle, she looked like a sexy model about to strip off her clothes for the camera. And as long as he was the photographer, they would have an album of perfect shots.
“Since you took the trouble to trace me down here…” she started.

I moved into the house on a cold rainy day. The clouds would not let up and everywhere was wet. From my bedroom window, I took in the garden behind the rumbling old house which needed pruning. The silver droplets kissing the leaves of the mahogany tree in the middle of the garden mesmerised me. But that tree would have to go. It was ancient. That night I dreamed of the mahogany tree begging me not to touch it. I woke up sweating, not understanding the dream. I wasn’t superstitious but throughout the day, a feeling of unease settled on me like an unwanted suitor.
In the evening my new neighbour came over to introduce herself. Mary Kwame was nice enough but she talked too much. Over hot tea she filled me in on the local gossip.
“We all wondered who would move in here, you know.”
I cocked an eyebrow at this. “oh, and why was that?”
Mary swiveled her head, yes, that is what she actually did. Swiveled her head to see who was listening in even though we were alone. And then her voice dropped to a whisper. “This house is haunted you know. Someone died here. You must be brave”
An amused chuckle escaped my lips. “Mary, stories of ghosts and apparitions don’t scare me.
” “But Grace, you haven’t seen or heard anything yet.” She wailed.
The dream I had the night before popped into my mind and a shiver ripped through me, despite the hot tea.
Suddenly Mary gave a loud cackle, her eyes afire with an unholy light. “a ghost just passed through.”
I had enough. “Mary, I’ve had a busy day unpacking. I think we should call it an evening.”
Thankfully she took the hint and left shortly, apologising for overstaying her welcome. I told her not to worry, closing and locking the door firmly.
I slept soundly, perhaps too much. For I woke up to a commotion behind my house. Glancing at the bedside clock I noted the time to be 9.30. I still had a lot of unpacking to do. I tried to ignore the noise at the back of the house. The voices were many and I couldn’t make out a single word. Then I heard a loud knocking at the front door. Dashing to the bathroom attached to bedroom, I rinsed my face and mouth and hurried up to the door. Somehow I knew before unlocking the door that the news wouldn’t be good.
A handsome man stood before me. My heart did a flip. “Good morning, madam. I’m the neighbourhood watchdog committee chairman. My name is Opoku.”
“Opoku, how can I help you?” I hoped my voice sounded sexy.
“I’m sorry madam, but yesterday’s rains washed up the remains of a body buried under the mahogany tree in your yard.”
“Yes. We suspect the body must be that of Mary Kwame. She used to live near you. She’s been missing for four years now. The Police are on their way.”

Two minutes! She had only two minutes to make it all right. A shaky breath escaped her slightly parted lips as she stared at the unrelenting face of her director. Skido was like that; driving her until her got the best out of her. He always assured her she was good and he would be damned if he would allow her to think of herself any less.
“Come on, Tessa, one minute now.” Skido bellowed.
All she had to do was re-arrange her lovely features into a resolute look of abject weariness and say to her co-star. “I’m leaving you, Sadat.” So what was wrong with her? Her delivery wasn’t going well. Sadat was waiting for his cue, the crew were waiting to spring into action but all she could see was his pale and sweaty face in his crib. Her husband had assured her that their baby boy would be alright.
“No, I’ll feel better if you sent him to see the doctor.” She had insisted. But he had been more concerned she would be late for the rehearsals.
“Tessa, the two minutes are up. You need to relax. We try again after two more minutes. It’s obvious you aren’t yourself this morning.” Skido’s tone was kinder now and she could only nod.
Suddenly, his phone shrilled into the uneasy atmosphere. Tessa saw him reach into his shirt pocket to retrieve the phone and suddenly she felt loud thuds in her chest as her heart beat staccato rhythms. Her breathing now came out in shuddering spurts.
From a far land, she could hear Sadat asking her, his tone worried. “Tessa, are you alright?”
She shook her head, words failing her. Through a haze, she saw Skido’s eyes widen in horror, then denial, then something like pity as he looked into her direction. She knew it then. Her baby boy was no more.
“Just two minutes after you left the house.” Were the last words she heard as she slid into a welcoming darkness.Copyright © Celestine Nudanu 12/06/15
