Unforgivable LoveBook - 2017
"In this reimagining of the French classic Les liaisons dangereuses, it's the summer Jackie Robinson breaks baseball's color barrier and a sweltering heat has Harlem's elite fleeing the city for breezier Westchester County. There two schemers prowl the manicured gardens and fine old homes. Heiress Mae Malveaux rules society with an angel's smile and a heart of stone, attracting men like moths to a flame. To have the pleasure she craves, strict control of her suitors is paramount. Valiant Jackson has wanted Mae for years. The door open for him when Mae strikes a bargain: seduce virginal young Cecily--engaged to Mae's ex-lover Frank Washington, who values Cecily's innocence above all else. If successful, Val's reward will be a night with Mae. But Val secretly seeks another prize. Elizabeth Townsend is fiercely loyal to her church and her husband, a civil rights attorney. She is certain there is something redeemable in Mr. Jackson. Little does she know her most unforgivable mistake will be Val's greatest triumph."--From publisher.
