Grandma always said to find yourself a nice man.


When you were growing up, that was the advice Granny had for you. One that would provide, who didn’t lay around, drink up the paycheck, or pick fights. A churchgoing man, that’s what you needed.

And you agree, with one addition: you’d like a streak of wild, too.

In the new book “A Gangster and A Gentleman” by Kiki Swinson and De’Nesha Diamond, you’ll read two stories about women who want a lot of bad in their boys.

Melody Goldman had it all: a huge mansion, unlimited credit cards, designer clothes, a new Jaguar, a personal shopper, and in “I Need a Gangster,” she also had a lawyer-husband to pay for it all.

But Melody didn’t just love Richard for his money. She loved what he did in the bedroom, too. Richard knew how to work it.

So when Melody came home from shopping, expecting a little Richard in the sack, she got a big surprise: Richard’s bags were packed and he was leaving.

The bigger surprise came when Melody learned that Richard had frozen their bank account, locked her out of the mansion, and taken her car—and there wasn’t a thing she could do about it.

Signing that pre-nup wasn’t the best idea. Buying life insurance for Richard wasn’t good either, because Melody wouldn’t get a thing unless Richard died before the divorce was final.

But with Mad Melody, that could be arranged…

Elijah Hardwick was an 8-year-old when his family was gunned down in a gang blackout—and he might’ve died, if not for Mafia Don.

The gangster took the child in and raised Eli as his own so, naturally, Eli felt indebted.

So when Haitian gangster, Midnight, put a blackout on Mafia Don, it was also natural that the Don send his best enforcer to Los Angeles to protect a daughter, Blake.

But the “little girl” was a fine woman, and Blake Scott didn’t take any bull from any man. In “Gentlemen Prefer Bullets,” that could get her killed.

Violent, gritty, filled with four-letter words, but downright fun, “A Gangster and A Gentleman” is definitely not something you’d want to give to Grandma.

Authors Kiki Swinson and De’Nesha Diamond bring their readers right down to street-level with guns blazing and bullets ripping. The women in these novellas are sexy and sassy. The men are hard-bodied and swaggering. The language is harsh and takes no prisoners. Together you’ve got two steamy stories that will make your heart pound for more reasons than just one.

Bring a fan for yourself because you’re going to need it when you read “A Gangster and A Gentlemen.” If you’re a lover of street lit or you just want a book with fire, this one’s so good, it’s bad.
