Indebted (Atlanta’s Finest Series Book 2)
Sharon C. Cooper
Even when he does good, he’s bad…
Detective Lazarus Dimas doesn’t play by the rules. On the streets, he’s a force to be reckoned with, a dangerous man with a badge and a gun. But he does have a soft spot — the sexy assistant district attorney Journey Ramsey. There is something about the woman he can’t shake. She’s irresistible and off limits. At least that’s what he keeps telling himself, but one kiss leads to others and well…so much for limits.
Journey plays by the rules, normally. But she can’t deny the sexual tension that sparks whenever Laz is near, even when he puts her professional integrity at risk. Laz is complex. The type of man fathers warn their daughters about. Yet, there’s a gentle, vulnerable side to him that he lets no one see except her, and she can’t resist him.
Can Laz prove he’s the man for Journey before a reopened case exposes his true colors? Or will the danger they face show that the love they share knows no boundaries?
*Indebted is book 2 in the Atlanta’s Finest Series, but can be read as a standalone.
**Indebted was previously published in the box set Breaking Bad as a novella. For those who read the novella, this is Laz and Journey’s complete (full-length) story. This is also an interracial romance (BWWM).

Yahrah St. John
Jada Hart dreamed of making it big as a TV anchor at San Francisco’s WLB-TV. She’d pulled up stakes from her family home in Dallas believing her dream would soon be in hand. But five years later, and still at the same station, she’d covered nothing but fluff news for the entertainment segment. The powers that be only saw a pretty face. They didn’t think Jada had the stuff to deliver hard-hitting news.
But one day, in walked a new owner, Damian McKnight, who recognized Jada’s on-air potential and believed she deserved a shot at the anchor seat. This was despite the fact she constantly challenged him in front of his employees. Any other boss would have deemed Jada a problem worker, but Damian had his own problem: He liked Jada’s sass. Additionally, she was drop-dead gorgeous and intelligent. But he was the boss, so he couldn’t get involved with her.
But Jada had the hots for Damian too. She admired that he’d pulled himself up by his bootstraps to escape poverty and become a media mogul. Plus, he was just plain sexy—sexy chocolate! Soon, the chemistry between the pair would be too much to be denied, and they’d fall into a glorious affair. Jada would also get her shot at the anchor seat, but would their affair be discovered? Would she lose her colleagues’ respect if they believed she’d slept with Damian to get ahead?
What initially started out as hot sex would become something far more deep: Love.
Will Damian and Jada walk away from their affair when both of them are Captivated Hearts?
