New York Times and #1 Essence best selling author Mary B. Morrison expertly blends steamy fiction with reality. In 2001, readers were captivated by Morrison’s Soul Mates Dissipate series which explored the topic that puzzles most of us: how to find— and keep — your soul mate. Publishers Weekly noted Morrison’s sensual novels “pack in dozens of juicy episodes” in her “high drama page turners”. Morrison continued to keep readers on the edge of their seats, wondering what drama her main characters would get into next. Publishers Weekly described her as “prolific” noting with Darius Jones, “there’s not a dull moment in this shamelessly flamboyant romp that Morrison’s many fans are sure to devour.” This summer Morrison is returning with a sexy and thrilling new novel about an obsessed man and what he will do to make sure he gets the woman he wants. IF I CAN’T HAVE YOU is being published this August by Dafina Books in hardcover original.

He doesn’t understand she’s a busy woman who owns and operates a multi-million dollar multi-media firm. She’s not trying to be celibate. She loves sexing him but she’s tired of Granville wanting more than she has to offer.
