bestselling author Nikki Turner returns with an explosive new novel
about a woman at an emotional crossroads–and the men left in
Isis Tatum knows firsthand the way love can mess up a person. After
all, she saw her mother drive a truck through the home of her
father’s mistress before killing her dad. And ever since Isis
was a teenager, her love life has been a series of disasters: Her first
sweetheart was executed by the state of Virginia, and her next lover
was sent to jail for murder. Now Isis is a successful jewelry designer,
but she remains a failure with men. When she meets Logic, a Las Vegas
high roller who treats her like a princess, Isis reckons
she’s finally struck gold–literally. Logic sees to
it that her custom pieces of jewelry are seen on the hottest rap stars
and pro athletes.
But when this Mr. Right ends up in jail too, Isis starts to believe
that she’s cursed, that she’s a true Black Widow.
Always one to roll with the punches, she embraces her life and walks
bravely down all its twisted paths, taking her business to
unprecedented heights while letting the men who dare to get involved
with her take their chances.
