Comprising two distinct short novels - Monroe's Nightmare in Paradise and Bad Luck Shadow from critically acclaimed Victor McGlothin - Borrow Trouble is a hot double-feature that perfectly showcases each author's unique style.
In 1947 St. Louis, Ms. Etta's is the place where a sinner can get all the boozy action he craves - that is until ladies' man Baltimore Floyd rolls into town and falls in the sack with the wrong woman.
An Essence best-selling author, Victor McGlothin is praised for his African-American inspirational fiction. Sinful is a dramatic tale of love, greed, and redemption. As Chandelle and Marvin Hutchins deal with growing financial and emotional pressures in their marriage, Cousin Dior comes to visit. Beautiful but irresponsible, Dior loves excitement and will use anyone - even Chandelle and Marvin - to get it.
"The title says it all..."
Victor McGlothin is the Essence best-selling author of Autumn Leaves. In The Secrets of Newberry, McGlothin crafts a stunning portrait of race relations in New Orleans circa 1955. When Hampton Bynote meets Bones Arcineaux, the two begin stealing from the rich whites of the French Quarter as a way of recovering the pride that was once taken from them. But when one burglary takes a turn for the worse, the consequences haunt the two men for years to come.
