Dance Star Rule #1: Never fall from grace.
As the television series that made her a star wraps, fifteen-year-old Rayne Graham is on top of the world. She has a fabulous life, new show, and is this close to becoming the girlfriend of Hollywood’s hottest teen star. However, her world crashes down when she loses all her money and the new show is cancelled.
Rayne is forced to return to her small hometown and navigate a new school, old dance studio, and long forgotten enemies. However, determined to return to Hollywood and her old life, she hatches a scheme to land an audition with a world-renowned dancer and choreographer. But, in the quest to regain her star power, she may learn that family, love, and friendship are really what make her shine.
You first met the world of Fairchester’s movers and shakers, where money will only get you so far and pedigree is key, in NAIL IT: Breaking into the Black Elite. In this follow-up to the popular novel, Noah Kyle, who is handsome, educated, and the first black senior vice president at First Southern Bank, discovers that everything that glitters isn’t always gold as tension at the bank threatens the success he has worked so hard to obtain. Although he now has little time to pressure his beautiful wife, Sahara, to join the city’s powerful social circle--where ladies lunch, expensive toys are the norm, and it isn’t about what you know but rather whom—her new friend, Teri, happily steps in where Noah left off and picks up the cause. The friends soon realize that the more things change, the more they stay the same, and Teri convinces Sahara and Zora that they should try to become members of one of Fairchester’s most exclusive social clubs.
However, Sahara quickly learns that gaining membership in this tight-knit circle is not child’s play, and the process may be stacked against her. Not only does it seem that half of Fairchester is seeking the coveted membership--including her nemesis, Emery Edmonds, a sophisticated socialite on the rise--but Sahara will have to go head-to-head against her friends. The stakes couldn’t be higher as alliances are made, loyalties are tested, and old secrets threaten to come to light. But, in this circle, if Sahara wants a seat at the table, she has to play to win, because it is GAME ON.
Black, educated, and possessing all the right stats, Sahara and Noah Kyle move to North Carolina ready to break into the area's black bourgeois social circle. This is a world governed by black socialites and movers and shakers, who hold membership in the Sphinx, the Darlings, the Shield, Belles & Beaus, and the black fraternities and sororities. Being in the right circle could position the Kyles for even greater affluence, but being shut out could be the death knell for more than just their social life.
Noah appears to quickly catch his stride, but Sahara struggles navigating this world of pearls, poise, and protocol. The sky's the limit, but will secrets, lies, and double crossings keep them on the outside of this high power network looking in? Or, when it comes to entering the world of the black elite, do they have what it takes to NAIL IT?
