Courtney Wheeler (clove410) | 9 comments Hello Sistars and Kings:

My name is Courtney Wheeler and I have a new novel I would love to be read. The book is entitled, "After the Reign: A Baltimore Love Story"

A sample of my book posted on

Please give me a try. If you like it, please purchase the book.

The reviews mean a lot. I appreciate your consideration.

Note: This book is historical fiction set in Baltimore City (Westside) during the 1990s.



Scion a/k/a Science is a young man with a plan to take over Harm City, block by block. Living in a cold-hearted world of killers, feigns, robbers and freaks, he never imagines finding a queen. Renita is a beautiful college-bound dreamer who craves far off adventure. She is immediately smitten when Scion, a handsome yet dangerous stranger walks back into her existence. With each other’s love the future looks promising for them both. In his arms, she feels safe and secure. Her love makes him stronger.

When his comfortable existence is challenged by unexpected threats, Scion is forced to react or adjust. Phat asses, foreign whips and ménage à trois, come with a cost. Loved ones die, frenemies emerge and gains come with greater losses.

Scion learns the truth – some treasures can’t be replaced.
He had the life he’d always wanted,
but was blinded by desire for things beyond his station.

When the empire is crumbling – what’s a man to do? Fight to maintain with every fiber of his being
OR charge the loss to the game?

Luscious | 15 comments I would be happy to leave a review for your book, and hope you might consider returning the favor.

My debut short story collection, Urban Life, Urban Love by Luscious Lee, contains 13 sexually explicit tales set in the same room of a run down motel. The language and situations reflect the environment, but I think the characters are fully formed, real and recognizable people, and the story lines are unique and engaging.

The book is free on KU, but I would be happy to send a free PDF copy if you would consent to leaving me a review. Thank you - I hope we can help each other out.
