P a s s i o n a t e

Imagany! Charismatic. Beautiful. Fiery. Strong. She's inundated with raw passion and sex appeal. Men are drawn by her sheer sensuality and her erotic ways. Imagany! She knows how to satisfy and temper the hungry, raging fires that dwell within her. She knows how to love. Passion and pleasure have their perfect place in her life.

Driven to success, Imagany must learn one of life's hardest lessons: True love exacts a price and all the accolades in the world cannot take the place of a deep burning love.

P o w e r f u l

Elliott! The dynamic, gorgeous "strong black man" who enters Imagany’s life. With his character, his intelligence, his strength, and his love, he surpasses all stereotypes. Elliott! He leaves an indelible mark upon a woman's life that cannot be erased. Imagany quickly learns that a woman has never been loved until she's been loved by a man like Elliott Renfroe.

P r o v o c a t i v e

Imagany and Elliott! Their hearts match and their wills clash in an explosion of fireworks and canonry. Life for the two of them will never be the same. Together, they must discover that true love and happiness can only be attained when they forego their Preconceived Notions about life, love, passion, and one another.

Experience Ecstasy!
Experience Passion!
Experience...Preconceived Notions!

Product Description
Preconceived Notions

“Female bonding, unresolved anger, preconceived notions and a sensitive, understanding man are woven into this exciting and impelling plot. The ending is unexpected and wildly romantic in true Hollywood style. In fact, it would make a great movie.”

– Sarah Goldsmith, Sunday Advocate

“Robyn Williams demonstrates the literary talent of Terry McMillan as she cleverly and creatively reveals a very provocative and loving relationship centered in mutual respect, love, and trust.”

– Deborah Baylis, Citizen News

“Love with a twist…Quick, give me a cool drink. I’ve just put down Preconceived Notions!”

– LaTicia Greggs, Chicago Defender

“Robyn Williams has crafted a riveting, seductive first novel that deftly explores Black male-female relationships from a refreshing perspective… There is a genuine passion evident in her writing that is unmistakable, and that simply should not be missed.”

– Ronald E. Childs, Black Elegance

"With her first incredibly provocative literary masterwork, Robyn Williams has produced an insightful novel that candidly probes the potent dynamics of black romance. Williams melds explosive passion, eroticism, greed, violence, and pain into an electrifying and climactic entanglement.

In the vein of Terry McMillans Waiting to Exhale and Connie Briscoes Sister and Lovers, Preconceived Notions powerfully explores the passions, desires and fears that erupt when a beautiful, fiery black woman and a "strong black man" fall in love.

Imagany is a bright and ambitious Fisk University journalism major with a talent for dance. Elliott is the handsome, charismatic star quarterback for Tennessee State University. When they meet, the attraction is immediate; the intensity of their passion leaves their lives irrevocably changed forever. As their relationship unfolds, however, their unrivaled love is challenged by the deep, dark secrets lurking in the shadows of Imagany’s past. These secrets threaten not only to tear apart the paradise they have created for themselves, but also the very soul of Imagany herself."

– Regina Lynch Hudson

    MOST DEFFINETLY READ THIS!

    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:)

    Review of fellow TSU alum

    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.'

    Robyn, This Is Beyond Outstanding!

    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.

    This novel explores dreams, values, insecurities and realities

    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.
