Overview

The newest entry into the hugely successful world of popular fiction by African-American female writers, Preconceived Notions explores the joys and disappointments of black romance.

Imagany, a smart, black college sophomore, tries to maintain her love affair with a handsome university quarterback while becoming involved with a rich, older man, and while struggling with her own unhappy past.

What happens when a beautiful, fiery black woman and a "strong black man" fall in love? In her incredibly provacative first novel, Robyn Williams powerfully explores these passions, desires and fears that crupt. She melds explosive passion, croticism, greed, violence and pain into a dynamic, electrifying and climatic entanglement."Love with a twist... quick, give me a cool drink! I just put down Preconceived Notions."

A MUST READ, I COULDNT PUT IT DOWN, I FINISHED IT IN 2 DAYS. THE STORY LINE KEEPS YOU IN ANTICIPATION. THE DESCRIPTIONS WERE VERY VIVID AND THE DIALOGUE WAS REALISTIC, UNLIKE SOME BOOKS WHERE THE STORY IS GOOD BUT THE DIALOGUE IS RATHER 'CORNY.' DEFFINETLY WORTH MORE THAN I PAID FOR IT:)

I thought this was a great book. I have one problem. I wish the publisher would have some discussion about these great books that really deals with lifes issues. I need some help in coming up with some discussion questions for my next bookclub meeting. If someone can help me, I would appreciate if you would email me.

I truly enjoyed 'Preconceived Notions.' Not just because the setting was in Nashville, TN where I went to college. It was because the story was very enlightening. The relationship between Imagany and Elliott was so real. It showed the hardships that couples deal with trying to make their relationship work. I definetly give the book 5 stars. Robyn keep up the good work! I can't wait to read your next novel, 'A Twist of Fate.'

I have read over 250 romance books by African American authors but this one is the best one ever! Robyn, you have truly been blessed with the gift of writing and I am so thankful that you take this gift seriously. One of the things I enjoyed was reading about Chicago, a place I had the pleasure of living somewhile back and about life at a black college. I have already shared with you that factor we share of both having attended black colleges in Tennessee, so every phase that you shared brought back some good memories of those days. I can actually say this book deplicts a real romance story that provides us with the beginning development of the relationship with the ups and downs and the outcome, a book that you will read over and over because its like food for the soul. One of the things I have noted about Robyn, you seem to draw your readers into the story so well, you feel yourself being in the story, with feeling every word. Your characters are all so well developed and the overall plot you selected, if it was not real, it sure felt like it. I loved the way you developed the relationship with Imagany and Elliott along with Caprice and Carl. Women need to check out the Anthony character and pay attention as to how we can not fall into his trap. The family life that Imagany and her sister Zabree went through, well its still an area today that people still won't discuss. This is a book about love, trust, faith, domestic violence, abuse all wrapped up into one of the best novels I have had the pleasure of reading. I noted something, you left something unresolved here in this book, what ever happens to Zabree? Could that be another story down the road? I hope so, because I sure was cheering for her and I hate to not ever find out what becomes of her. Another thing I want to note, I commend your publisher, because I don't think I saw many typo errors if not any, that I have found in the other romance novels. So hats off to whoever does the editing because they did an outstanding job. Robyn, I am very proud of you with this novel, you have demonstrated to the world that you have just what it takes to be one of the best authors ever. I strongly, recommend this book for all to read and even for those who are aspiring to write it is an excellent learning tool. I also want to recommend to all the readers to please read Robyn's 'A Twist of Fate'. Just when I thought this one was the best, she moves to a higher level with that one. I look forward to your third novel! Robyn, I wish you nothing but many blessings and lots of success.

Robyn Williams' novel, Preconceived Notions is a solid literary contribution to the emerging number of African American romance and fiction books that color the bookshelves. Williams gives primary characters Imagany Jenkins and her love interest Elliott Renfroe realistic substance. Readers know authentic people like the characters portrayed in this book. The internal and external conflicts presented, reminds us of some of our own situations or those of close friends and provided an opportunity to revisit them. This story is complete with drama, romance, suspense and tragedy. The author is talented and has instantaneously generated a readership. I am looking forward to reading her next novel.
