Lucky Seven by Rae D Magdon 

Synopsis 

Elena Nevares is on the run. She’s a jacker, someone who connects to virtual reality with their brain, and everyone else on her crew was murdered during a mission gone wrong. 

Sasha Young is planning a rescue. She’s a handler, a team leader whose crew has been scattered by an evil corporation: Axys Generations. 

Together, they must find the rest of Sasha’s crew: Cherry, the engineer and explosives expert; Rami, the master of disguise; Doc, the wunderkind Medical Officer; and Rock, the mechanically modified muscle. But Axys Generations has bigger plans than taking down Sasha’s crew. 

Elena, Sasha, and the rest of the Lucky 7 must go on their most dangerous mission yet—not for credits or tech, but to save the world.

Rae D Magdon’s 3 Lesbian Novel Recommendations 

Two Moons Stories by Krystal A Smith 

Publisher BFL Press

Synopsis 

A splendid debut collection of speculative fiction that traverses the connections between earth and the heavens, the living and the spectral, human and animal.  

In Cosmic, a former drug addict has a chance to redeem herself and restore honor to her family's name. In, Harvest, a woman tasked with providing for her community ponders her inability to bear live children. In the title story,Two Moons, a young woman falls in love with the moon, and is astonished by the moon's response. In What the Heart Wants, a rejected lover discovers that her physical and emotional desires are incongruent with the organ pumping blood through her veins.  

Sensitive, ethereal, humorous, and at times, heart-breaking, Smith's collection of speculative fiction signals the arrival of a writer who understands that Black girls are indeed magic.

Possessing Morgan by Erica Lawson 

Publisher Affinity Ebook Press NZ 

Synopsis 

New York City, in the height of summer. Crime seems to have taken a holiday, and Detective Morgan O'Callaghan is bored, bored, bored. Paperwork is mating and multiplying on her desk, and even a jaywalker is starting to look good. Anything to get her out from behind her desk! 

Enter Andrea Worthington, Charleston socialite and all-around rich girl, right down to the wealthy fiancé. She's also the new Assistant District Attorney assigned to Morgan's precinct. Their first meeting is like two freight trains crashing head on. Then a high profile, career make-or-break murder case throws them together again. The investigation has barely begun when Andrea becomes the target of a nearly fatal hit-and-run. 

But was it really aimed at her? Can she and Morgan find the common ground they need to solve the case and stop the attacks, or are the gaps just too wide to bridge?

Enter Grey Wells, the owner and captain of the Veritas, and the most complicated person Lauren has ever met.

Second Chances by MJ Duncan 

Synopsis 

Charlie Bennett is a rising star in the world of sports journalism, but her personal life is a mess. Still hung up on her college sweetheart, a one-night-stand gone wrong convinces her that she needs to make a change. An offer for a one-year guest lecturer position from a small private university provides her the opportunity she needs to escape, and she jumps at it. 

All Charlie expected to find when she left Manhattan for rural New Hampshire was a little peace. Instead, she finds Mackayla Thomas. 

Eight years have passed since Charlie foolishly walked away from Mackayla, and Mackayla is determined to never let anyone hurt her that way again. For Charlie, their serendipitous meeting is a sign that happily ever after might finally be within her reach. First, however, she needs to find a way to convince Mackayla to let the past go, and to give her a second chance.
