Aiming for perfection, she tries to ignore an ordinary guy she sees every day and makes her feel… something. When perfection finally comes, she finds herself torn between her dreams and the reality.

“Trifling: Milani’s Story” by London Starr is available on Amazon.com

Trifling
Buy on Amazon

Fourteen-year-old Milani Elliot’s suffered crisis on top of crisis, the likes of which most people never come back from, eventually pushing her over an edge, into a promiscuous lifestyle at only sixteen, allowing her to use boys then men from every walk of life as the years progressed in Miami, Florida. However, she had no idea that she would meet the one true love of her life at the tender age seventeen; a year after she started looking for love in all the wrong places and she had no idea he would break her heart because of her trifling behavior.
Eight years later, she’s developed a sex schedule and has no problem tossing men off of like day-old trash when they can no longer fulfill whatever need that made her sleep with them in the first place, but it’s time for Milani to learn that Karma’s a bitch who will make her pay for every selfish misdeed that earned her the title of ‘Trifling’. She just doesn’t know that she’ll pay for every transgression at one time, in one night, and maybe even with her only life.
Rhys Malone is the last person that Milani allowed to hurt her. He’s a married, criminal attorney that loves his wife wholeheartedly, and he’ll never cross the vast distance between who he and Milani are inside and out as people. To him, she’ll always be a drug kingpin’s daughter and a whore.
The murder of Rhys’ wife will put Milani on his street, in the right place at the wrong time, to come face to face with the love of her life, who accuses her of the killing. He’s certain her love for him is the cause, giving her every reason to clear her name. They enter the proverbial, sinking boat together, unwillingly. The vast distance between a drug kingpin’s daughter and a wealthy, married lawyer will start to shrink, as they look for his wife’s killer. They both will drown if they don’t find the murderer in time.

Inimicus
Buy on Amazon

“Scius is the obvious enemy. Inimicus is the enemy that you don’t know you don’t know. The one you’d never see coming in a million lifetimes.”
That was what Jonah was told.
And now, he knows Inimicus is in the game. His unseen enemy is prowling through the shadows, making moves that no one can predict or prevent, and armed with a weapon more dangerous than any ethereal blade or staff: anonymity.
Jonah thought he had ventured into uncharted waters before, but the past was nothing compared to this. In the past, the enemies were known. Now, no amount of power can help you fight an enemy that you “don’t know you don’t know.”
In this latest installment in The 11th Percent Series, loyalties will be tested. People will lose sight of what’s truly important. The line between friend and enemy will get blurred. And the question everyone’s mind is also the same one that holds the difference between victory and downfall: Who can you trust?

The gangster forms a bond with Malika, one of the whores, sees some worth in her until he catches her selling herself to an Afghan.

The drug lord sees the Russian mafia taking his business. He will not let it happen without a fight. The Afghan smugglers’ leadership, double-dealing and treacherous as ever sense an opportunity to play the Tajikistan drug lord off against the Russian mafia.
