Mr. Loverman by Bernadine Evaristo
Barrington Jedidiah Walker is seventy-four and leads a double life. Born and bred in Antigua, he's lived in Hackney, London, for years. A flamboyant, wise-cracking character with a dapper taste in retro suits and a fondness for Shakespeare, Barrington is a husband, father, grandfather--and also secretly gay, lovers with his childhood friend, Morris.
His deeply religious and disappointed wife, Carmel, thinks he sleeps with other women. When their marriage goes into meltdown, Barrington wants to divorce Carmel and live with Morris, but after a lifetime of fear and deception, will he manage to break away? With an abundance of laugh-out-loud humor and wit, Mr. Loverman explodes cultural myths and shows the extent of what can happen when people fear the consequences of being true to themselves.
The Wicked: Vampire Huntress Legend by L. A. Banks Book 8
There is no happily ever after for Damali and Carlos, even though they have finally tied the knot. There are bigger problems on the horizon: A band of human scientists conducting secret experiments has opened the dimension that holds Cain, the son of Eve and the new Chairman of the Vampire Council. And now that Cain is back into the human world, he's bigger and badder than ever.
Cain has amassed an army of creatures no one has ever encountered before…and he has plans of his own for his beloved Vampire Huntress Damali. So when she heads to Hell to serve justice―and faces a nemesis of pure, unforeseen evil―it's all Carlos can do to get Damali back. After all, his wife might be pregnant. The question is: Is Damali's child his―or the Chairman's?
