WALKER BOYS EBOOK SERIES – OnyxLee Publications looks forward to introducing our first mainstream African-American romance writer, Shylee Campbell to our community. In 2022, Shylee will introduce our readers to the world of the handsome, sexy, smart and well-mannered men of her three ebook series, Walker Boys. The following is a synopsis of each short story. Stay tuned for more sneak peaks.
TREAT HER RIGHT – BOOK 1
Jayson Lee Walker is the eldest of three brothers, who was raised by single parent Jessamina Walker. His strong, firm, God fearing, and loving mother taught all of her boys how to respect, love, and protect the women in their lives using her three golden rules.
Jayson prided himself on obeying his mother’s rules, and learning invaluable lessons from her that set him on the course of his career as an integral part of Reele Black Entertainment in Atlanta, Georgia. This handsome male lead in Treat Her Right was groomed at a very early age to be the man of the family. Although Jessamina loved hard, she was often unlucky in the longevity of a loving relationship. After her first husband left her with young, Jayson and an even younger baby brother, Marlo, it was five-year old Jayson that reassured his mother she hadn’t been abandoned by all of the men in her life. When his mother fell in love again, and gave birth to his brother, Hezekiah, it was Jayson to the rescue to help her raise this third son, after the sudden death of Jessamina’s lover. When his mother became ill with pancreatic cancer during his freshman year in college, it was Jayson who came to her aid, and continued to offer the companionship that Jessamina needed to keep their family in tact.
Being the one in control came naturally for Jayson even though he had a lot of practice throughout his childhood and young adult years. But as the young boy grew into a strong man, the need to control his life and others became more of an avoidance technique from his own obvious need and hidden desire to be cared for as well. When Jayson’s methodically controlled life is disrupted by leading lady, Kyra Matthews, he must use all of the life lessons and his mother’s golden rules to help him determine if this boss babe is a cure or a curse for his ailments.
Will Jayson and Kyra put down their weapons of strategic games in their fight to control Reele Black Entertainment long enough to allow their hearts to merge in a more passionate, united front?
LOVE HER ALWAYS – BOOK 2
Marlo Walker shared a bromance with his older brother from the day his little chubby cheeks stretched into a grin and his big brown eyes sparkled with adoration at the sight of Jayson Walker. Jayson was only five years old, but he embraced the role of big brother and father figure for Marlo as soon as he held the 10 pound butterball in his little arms.
Marlo never thought he could love someone even more than he loved Jayson, who he admired for his strength and courage to protect and care for their family. True, Marlo did love his mother, Jessamina and his younger brother, Hezekiah, but there was no separating him from his even deeper love for Jayson. Jayson was his best friend, his guidance counselor, his bodyguard, his religion. That is until, Madison Calloway brought her smooth velvety chocolate skin, sweet pretty brown eyes, and soft kissable lips into his life during his senior year of college. From that moment on, Marlo made room in his heart for sweet romantic love and carnal desire for Ms. Madison Loraine Calloway!
Throughout the years, as they built separate successful careers, Marlo as a talented singer/songwriter, and Madison as a television journalist, the flame continued to burn brightly in their hearts for each other. When Marlo finally decides to propose to his long-time love on her 30th birthday, the engagement ring, wedding plans, and a future of forever with Madison begins to give Marlo reservations about their ultimate destination down the aisle.
Will Marlo say, “I Do,” or find himself repeating the sins of his real father, and walk away from the one that has his heart?
KISS HER GOODNIGHT – BOOK 3
Hezekiah Walker has only one wish, to be named by any other name, just not the same as the popular American gospel music artist and pastor of a prominent New York megachurch. There’s not many places, the young Hess, as his family calls him, can travel that people don’t make an instant connection with his government name, and that of the talented gospel singer/pastor of Love Fellowship Tabernacle. But Hezekiah is not the type of man to let the path that has been forged ahead of him by other strong men, such as his eldest brother, Jayson, prevent this baby boy of the family from happily pursuing his own destination.
After finishing seminary school and receiving his Master’s degree in Ministry and Leadership, Hezekiah starts a spiritual movement for millennials that offers a broader reach of Christianity to many people that have been denied access due to the judgement of the traditional religious doctrine. Through Hezekiah’s words and mission, he promotes spirituality not organized religion, and with the help of Jayson and Reele Black Entertainment, he has received a platform on their cable station.
As Hezekiah continues to build his ministry and separate his rugged, street-wear, Gospel hip-hop persona from his older more traditional counterpart, this young Walker boy also finds his way into the heart of Besstinia Mitchell and her young daughter, Cherise. Besstinia offers her creative genius and resourcefulness to Hezekiah as his show’s producer. As their working relationship grows, so does their attraction to each other, and his involvement in her personal challenges as a single parent. Through his young ministry initiative, Hezzekiah develops a paternal relationship with young, Cherise, and his kindness and support to her daughter only endears him more to Besstinia’s heart. But as Hezekiah tries to deepen their relationship on a more intimate level, he must help Besstinia overcome the battlefield of her mind and spirit to trust him to be the man she has always wanted in her life.
Will Hezekiah find a second family in Besstinia and Cherise through patience, love, and faith, or will the dream of a family be further out of reach than reclaiming his own right to his birth name?
