Blaque Pearle (2023)

A Novel 

Before her Hollywood dreams were shattered, Pearle Monalise Brown was the tenacious aspiring actress from Compton's unforgiving, scarred streets. Never broken, Pearle switches gears to a Plan B—resorting to her beauty and acting skills to swindle money and expensive jewels. When she's hired by the Colombian cartel to steal a priceless Basquiat from the debonair kingpin and art collector, Blaque, her talents might not be enough to keep her from falling into a trap she never saw coming.   


Blaque is sagacious and handsome—not to mention the legacy of two powerful organized crime families: the Laurents—known dons hailing from Kingston, Jamaica, and the Savages—a sophisticated syndicate with criminal enterprises across the U.S. As Blaque and Pearle become passionately entangled, Pearle falls prey to a darker underworld. Time is ticking, and lives are at stake. Will these love outlaws be able to outsmart their enemies, or will they wage an all-out war and let the bodies fall where they may?
