In the enticing novella SLOW MOTION, readers are introduced to BET Publications' first male Arabesque romance authors Wayne Jordan and R. Barri Flowers, writing as Devon Vaughn Archer.
Capture The Sun by Wayne Jordan takes us to a little cottage situated on the enchanted beaches of Barbados where Alana Smyth-Connell and her daughter are hiding out from her ex-husband. However, they are not alone. Taurean Buchanan, in need of solace from the outside world, is also there. His brother has offered him the use of his vacation house for a few months. Unbeknownst to Tauren and his brother, his sister-in-law has also granted Alana use of the cottage. Although they decide to make the best of the situation, the instant attraction between them will cause some problems.
In Devon Vaughn Archer's Dark and Dashing readers are introduced to Conneca Sheridan owner of the Sheridan Seaside Inn. While at a charity auction to promote literacy, one wrong move causes Conneca to offer the highest bid for renowned author Maurice Templeton. After a night on the town followed by a passionate kiss, Conneca makes it clear that she is not interested in a relationship. Maurice, however, has other plans. Deciding to stay in town for a few more days, he tracks Conneca down and makes a reservation to stay at her inn. What follows is a fairy tale romance, until Maurice's ex-wife/writing partner shows up.
SLOW MOTION is a well-written book with two tantalizing tales of romance. Jordan and Archer have penned wonderful stories. The storylines, characterizations and plots were on point. Each page flowed from chapter to chapter without missing a beat. Highly recommended, SLOW MOTION is a novella that will be enjoyed by readers for years to come.
