Paper Bag (Scheduled Release: October 31, 2020 / Pre-order is for Limited Time)
Donovan Trudeaux, an aspiring attorney with smooth brown skin, falls in love with Summer Fontenette - the "light skinned", wavy haired beauty who is the only daughter of Gaylord Fontenette, one of the most successful African-American attorney's in New Orleans. Donovan and Summer's chemistry is undeniable. They spend every waking moment thinking of each other. To Donovan, marriage is inevitable, but Summer isn't so sure. During their four-month courtship, Summer has insisted that their relationship grow before she brings him home to meet her family. But, Summer's reluctance is really rooted in her understanding of her family's "ways". The Fontenette family lives by an unwavering edict that has been passed down from generations: all suitors must pass the Brown Paper Bag Test. With her seven-figure inheritance tethered to the rigid commandment, the decision to continue to see her chocolate lover or marry the "light skinned" man her parents' hand-picked, is a lot harder than she wants to admit.
