“Kiki captures the heat of the streets.”
—Wahida Clark
The night Duke Carrington walked into the Magic City strip club in Portsmouth, Virginia, Lynise Washington was working her usual bartending shift. But there was nothing routine about Duke. Wealthy, charming, and persuasive, he soon swept her off her feet. He wined and dined her, and eventually invited her to move out of her low-budget rental and into his luxury condo. Then he convinced her to quit her job. The future was looking bright. But just as Lynise was getting used to five star restaurants and VIP treatment, Duke was getting ready to replace her with a rival she didn’t even know she had…
An infamous heavy hitter, Duke was used to getting everything he wanted, no matter the cost. But Lynise got everything she wanted too. And soon she’d prove to Duke that it would have been cheaper to keep her…
