JAE’S BOOKS As a child, Tina “”Tee”” Long dreamed of having it all. As one of Memphis’’ most sought after event planners, she appears to have achieved it. Even though creating breathtaking events and rubbing elbows with the social elite seems exciting, there’’s one thing missing from her fairy tale life—her prince charming. After a string of failed, faith-challenging relationships, this woman of God refuses to give up on meeting the man of her dreams. Tee knows in her heart that God will answer her prayers –SOMEDAY. Until then, she tries to remain prayerful and content by occupying her time working hard, withstanding her sister’’s drama-filled marriage, counseling wayward youth and sharing the ups and downs of life with her hilarious girlfriends. When Tee is introduced to an incredibly handsome, retired NFL player named Michael Stokes, it seems that someday has finally arrived. There’s one problem. He’’s been marked for death. Will Tee accept a man who has a killer on his trail and a surprising new addition to his family? Someday is full of adventure, excitement, thrills, laughter and love as Tee and Michael fight to stay alive in order to be together.
Tee realizes dreams do come true when she becomes the wife of retired NFL great Michael Stokes. But fairytales are fleeting and they return from the honeymoon to find the devil is still busy. Tee learns the hard way not everyone is happy she found Mr. Righteous. Michael’s reputation is rocked by a scandal that could end his new career as a motivational speaker. As if that weren’’t enough, crazy Rebecca DeFoy is back— –or is she? Can a love so fragile and new withstand these tumultuous times? Readers will also meet Tee’s friends, the girls! Sandy is expecting a new bundle of joy but the baby blues take over when her adulterous past comes back to haunt her. Lenice finally seeks help for her man-hating ways, but learning to love again is hard to do even if there is a good man willing to help. Her twin, Lenora, has a love affair with food that is threatening her health and her marriage. Also, Tiffany finds herself living single after giving her married lover the boot, but she isn’’t fond of living without his loot. Can she find the strength to take care of herself and her son on her own, or will her love of money keep her tied to a sinful relationship? Someday, Too delves into the complexities of love, friendship and faith. It reminds us that God can provide all your needs but first, you have to be willing to trust Him
Tee and Michael Stokes have realized that life for them will never be normal. As heads of a new entertainment management company and expecting parents, it’s now more important than ever to figure out if their stalker, Rebecca DeFoy, is dead or alive. If she’s alive, will she kill again? If she’s dead, who is impersonating her and why? Whichever the case, they must put an end to the harassment once and for all before she puts an end to them. The Girls Are Back! Tiffany has traded in her tight clothes and stilettos for big hats and conservative dresses as she tries to prove to one of Memphis’ most promising young pastors that she is worthy of a man in the pulpit. Can she control her feelings for Michael, or will temptation ruin her chances for love and her friendship with Tee? Lenice has entered the world of online dating. Her keystrokes can’t mask the pain of a failed relationship, but they could lead her into the life of an elderly millionaire. Lenora’s weight loss has changed her body and her attitude for the better, but her husband’s job at the Kitty Kat Club may be too much for even the new and improved Lenora to handle. Join Tee, Michael, and their hilarious friends as they discover that the key to surviving this journey called life is to hold on tight to the hands of the ones you love while you pray for faith to see you through. Forever and a Day will keep you loving, laughing, and on the edge of your seat!

This novella is a collaboration between Jae and fellow author Mario D. King. The attraction between Marcus and Natalie was evident from the moment they locked eyes. He was a handsome successful business man who prided himself on being able to close any deal ─ except the one that could get the woman he wanted to marry to stay. In search of a distraction from his broken heart, Natalie, the demur secretary with the “bangin body,” and no sliver of a man in sight, seemed like the perfect choice. Sparks fly and earth-shattering sex erupts. But what was supposed to be a simple sex only arrangement gets very complicated when Natalie makes a discovery that sends them on an emotional journey that will leave them connected to one another for many years to come. This entertaining thought-provoking novella expertly illustrates what can happen when you allow lust to determine your direction. There could be life-altering consequences and repercussions and you just may find yourself asking the question, “Where do we go from here?” Only Available in ebook.
