In an attempt to reclaim her life and bury her demons, Zoe sets out for picturesque Lake George, New York, and a visit to the treasured family cottage she recently inherited. But what she finds is a rundown shack.

The neighboring resort owner, Jason Rolland immediately invites Zoe to stay at his upscale lodge. He’s determined to get rid of the eye-sore next door, the last reminder of his less-than-perfect childhood. Now, he needs to charm the red-haired beauty into selling.

The Conspiracy of Silence by Augustine Sam


An exposé on the murky world of high-stakes politics...a depiction of the life-and-death struggle of a young female lawyer who goes to great lengths to outwit a diabolical trio in order to save her lover from a murder rap.

The conscience of a town steeped in sexism, vanity and hypocrisy is pricked by the brutal murder of a mysterious woman in an LA park. But the shock is transformed into a steamy, seductive scandal when the corpse turns out to be Susan Whitaker, the flamboyant wife of the governor of California.

A secret lover/blackmailer theory leads to the indictment of Hollywood's most influential black celebrity. It is only the beginning, for Susan Whitaker, in fact, did not exist.

Little does anyone realize that this colossal fraud is a mere curtain raiser to a chilling world of ugly skeletons dating back to the assassination of a U.S. senator in a Washington hotel sauna, skeletons connected to riveting sex scandals in high places, skeletons the FBI and political kingmakers will kill for...
