From the imagination of Tiana Laveen comes an eye-opening, page-turning, sensually enthralling compilation of diverse love stories presented in the "Cross Climax" series.

"Jock of all Trades" - Football star Steven Johnson is used to getting what he wants. Despite Steven's charm, he is unable to attract the interest of Afrocentric Dr. Sandra Bell. After a chance hook-up involving a holiday raffle, they are shoved into a date which leads to an evening of passion. This unwraps a painful past for Dr. Bell, forcing her to either confront her demons or run away into the protection of denial. Will the seemingly frigid Dr. Bell succumb? All is fair in football and X-rays.

"White Hot Fire" - Set in 1956, David Stone is a divorced fireman. He has one son he is raising solo and has hired an Art History college student, Patricia Edwards, to be his child's caretaker. Patricia is a beautiful, unconventional, young, African-American woman. David and Patricia soon realize their strong attraction for one another and seize it, but not without dire consequences in a time of racial tension and upheaval.

"My One and Only" - This is the story of Nyko, an attractive, bright, but slightly jaded college student from the Midwest. She meets James Edmundson, an intelligent, mysterious, bi-racial man who could easily pass for Caucasian. He is harboring a deep secret that has been tearing his soul apart. Nyko and James have a brief, torrid love affair in which their chemistry goes above and beyond the normal connection. Can this bond be permanently broken even after excessive absence? Only time will tell.

"Spanish 'Lust'abies" - Puerto Rican music producer Jaivin Cortes touches musical talent and instantly turns them into gold. He has a clear plan and direction for his life until he meets two women: Denise Miller, a caring and witty upscale Manhattan boutique owner implanted from Savannah, GA and Antidote, a sensual, mysterious seductress he cannot get off his mind. Who will Jaivin choose, or will he have his cake and eat it too? Black stockings and handcuffs are required.
