Upcoming Release: Her Pleasure (Mistress #6)


HER PLEASURE | June 29, 2021

Publisher: Kensington/Dafina

Series: Mistress #6

National bestselling author Niobia Bryant serves up a scorchingly sexy and scandalous novel about finding love, reigniting passion, keeping secrets—and way too many incendiary lies . . .

After surviving a shattering betrayal by a former friend, Jaime Pine has every reason to celebrate. Stronger and savvier after her “perfect” marriage crashed-and-burned, Jaime now has Luc, a billionaire music mogul willing to give her everything, including a dazzling career, and what looks like a forever happily-ever-after. Until a no-limits island vacation with her best friends turns up the last person Jaime ever expected to see again.

Unforgettable Graham Walker, aka “Pleasure,” is an ex-escort skilled at mind-blowing sex. But now, after coming to terms with his own troubled past, Graham is a changed man. And Jaime finds him more irresistible than ever. Yet after one last no-holds-barred night together and a connection that can’t be denied, Jaime decides to finally put Graham in the past and move on with her new life as planned. She accepts Luc’s proposal of marriage—and then discovers she’s pregnant.

Torn and confused, Jaime spins a desperate web of half-truths and lies-of-omission to protect both men—and herself—as she struggles to choose her path. But when her secrets explode in public, the choice is made for her. Can she deal with her mistakes honestly and do what’s best for everyone involved?

20 Years and Counting…


It’s been twenty years since the release of my very first book, Admission of Love.  In fact, I’ve been so busy writing that I missed it by a week or so. That’s fine. Nothing can change how reaching this milestone makes me feel. I remember writing the book by hand and my mom gifting me a word processor to type it up and send it to publishers. Two offered me a deal and I went with Arabesque. No regrets.

Admission of Love led to such an amazing career for me, but also some trials that even on reflection shock me. Trials that have led to me being a loner in this industry. I have no clique or crew and that is by choice because of authors, at times, behaving badly.

I bring this up because those authors who choose to behave badly leave such a stain on the industry.  There is a nastiness beneath the surface that reveals inner-issues many need to address and conquer. I doubt I am alone in discovering acquaintances, foes, and strangers trying to intrude on my career as if their movements were unseen and their voices unheard. Like me, maybe other authors who have suffered through foolishness chose the high road and said nothing publicly. Still, in private I am shocked at the audacity of people.

New Romance Coming…in early 2021.

Beige and Gray Minimalist Quote Instagram PostMy Harlequin Desire romance debut has a title change from One Wild Night to One Night with Cinderella. I love it. The storyline plays on the Cinderella theme and the new title captures a lot of what the book is about. It will be on sale January 1, 2021 and is now available for preorder everywhere (Uhm, links below…) It is the first book in a series about the loves and losses of the Cress brothers–sexy chefs discovering love as they all work with their parents to build the family’s culinary empire. Mix in family secrets, scandals, and a few more twists and turns and you are in for one hell of a romance ride.

Also, I’m loving that One Night with Cinderella will be released in print in the UK via Mills & Boon! (The first two books in the Passion Grove series, A Billionaire Affair, and Tempting the Billionaire were also recently made available in paperback in the UK as well).  Below is Mills & Book’s book description of One Night with Cinderella. Hoping to reveal the cover soon and looking forward to hearing what you all think once it hits the stores…

Billionaire chef Gabriel Cress is heir to his family’s culinary empire and should certainly not seduce the housekeeper! But Monica Darby is a siren underneath her shy exterior…and pulls on heartstrings Gabe didn’t know he had. But when a surprise inheritance changes their circumstance, will their fairy tale affair end in happily ever after?
