LOVE AND HIPLIFE BY NANA PRAH

Lamisi Imoro will do anything to complete her PhD before the extension is up. It doesn’t matter who dies, leaves her high and dry, or hates her guts, she’s on fire. But, her supervisor wants to prove just how much he’d love to see her fail by throwing obstacles to thwart her from reaching her goal. Desperate for help and nowhere else to turn, she’s forced to ask for the assistance of the hiplife artist who once saved her from a nasty fall. She finds that their scorching attraction is a problem and is determined to tamp her rising emotions because nothing will stop her from getting what she set out to accomplish.

Blaise Ayoma is on the verge of taking African Francophone countries by storm with his new style of music. Learning how to sing in French without butchering the beautiful language is harder than he thought. Multi-linguist, Lamisi is the key to his success. When his presence in her life puts her in danger, will he end the budding relationship in order to keep her safe?

Happy New year 🥳

Hey guys. I want to wish you a wonderful 2020.

Thanks for all your support last year.  I’m grateful to everyone who bought, read and reviewed my books, blog articles and supported my social media pages. You all rock.

This year, I have burning writing plans. I’m so motivated that I decided to make the tentative book covers so that I don’t lose track.

First, I’d be releasing the last of the trilogy involving the three friends, Nosa, Philip and Femi. If you’ve read The Senators Daughter and The Governors Wife, be prepared for Femi’s love story with Justice Iyoma Haruna in The Judge’s Secret.

It’s about lies, betrayal and redemption. Can’t wait to share it with you.

I also have two other stories I’ve been plotting. Both are still in the development stage. I’ve already finished outlining Today And Forever, and completed the first chapter.

For those who enjoyed Love At First Sound, I’m considering a trilogy involving Kunle and Segun, Yomi’s brothers. So, stay tuned. 

Hopefully, I’ll keep my focus and continue to deliver exciting love stories from the heart of West Africa to you.

Feel free to bother me and call me out if you find me slacking. Let’s do this together!

I’ll share the tentative covers for now.

Writing plan 2020

Let me know what you think.

Merry Christmas

Hello guys! The holiday season is upon us again.

I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas.

Finally done with all the Christmas shopping and can’t wait for present opening time. Love seeing the pleased expressions on the faces of my family members as they unveil their gifts.

I’ve got good news to share. 💃🏽💃🏽💃🏽

The Governor’s Wife has been nominated as a finalist in the 2019 Ufere Awards Book Of The Year category. Thanks to all my readers for your constant support 💋


I’m working hard on the third book of the series involving the three friends, Nosa, Philip and Femi.

Hopefully, Femi’s story will be released early next year.

In the meantime, here’s the book cover designed by LoveBites And Silk.

What do you think?

I’ll share the blurb soon.

Best Wishes

First kisses— Unexpected Love

Counting down to Christmas!Yay! Can’t wait.


This week, I’ll be sharing the first kiss between Yemi Okeke and Vincent Mba from the novella, Unexpected Love, one of the love stories in the anthology, Be My Valentine, published by @LoveAfricaPress.

This scene was in the car, when Vincent dropped Yemi off at her home after an unexpected encounter with her in a restaurant.


I love car kisses. Always get me hot. 


💋💋💋💋💋💋

“Thanks, Vincent. I had a fantastic time tonight,” she said, fiddling with the zip on her hand bag.


“Me, too, Yemi. It was fun being with you … talking …” He trailed off.She sat stiffly. Silence stretched between them.


“Okay, I’ll see you later.” She turned towards the car door and reached for the handle.


A strong grip closed on her arm, stopping her. Startled, she whirled around to face him. Before she could process what was happening, Vincent’s lips had descended on hers.


Sheer unadulterated pleasure zapped through her entire body as his tongue teased her lower lip enticingly. Succumbing to the force of sensations he evoked, she parted her lips and welcomed the intrusion of his tongue.


“Ohhh,” she moaned, flinging her arms around his shoulders, vaguely aware of the sound of her bag crashing onto something in the car.


Her body came alive as Vincent’s large hands roamed over her, all the while he devoured her mouth with an intensity that excited her. 

His hands were everywhere. Her back, her ass, her neck, and then her hair. She couldn’t get enough of tasting him, touching him.


“You taste so damn good,” he muttered, angling his head for a deeper kiss, his tone guttural. “So hot and so sweet.”


Yemi could barely hear him as her entire body concentrated on the exquisite sensation of his tongue stroking the roof of her mouth.

First Kisses— The Governor’s wife

This week, I’ll be sharing the scene of the “first kiss” between Ogonna and Philip from The Governor’s Wife.

     Although not really their #FirstKiss, this was the first one they shared when they accidentally met again seven years after a bitter separation.

      I hope you enjoy reading as much as I enjoyed writing it.

💕💕💕💕💕💕💕

 A deep part of his subconscious rose up in protest. This was Ogonna, the woman who broke him by running off to marry someone else. 

He shouldn’t want to have anything to do with her, let alone kiss her. He needed to bring this madness to an end, turn and walk away.But Philip remained rooted to the spot, deepening the pressure of his thumb instead, and then trailing it slowly across her full lower lip. 

Her tongue darted out, flickering lightly. A bold move. Unexpected. 

His eyes swept to hers and he froze. They were wide as saucers, as if startled by her own boldness. It would have been easier for him to let her go if even an iota of repulsion or uncertainty registered in their dark depths. Instead, something primal flashed in her pupils. 

His breath trapped in his chest. Ogonna wanted him, too. The realisation sent a wave of need through him, weakening him.

Another soft moan came from her. His nostrils flared, and he let out a groan from deep within his throat. Almost roughly, he reached for her face, cradled it in both hands and brought his mouth down on hers. 

💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕

I hope you enjoyed this.

First Kisses— The Senator’s Daughter

It’s getting cold here on the Wirral peninsular where I live. For a little heat to cope with the daunting cold, I’ll be sharing the scene of Rita and Nosa’s first kiss from The Senator’s Daughter. 

Here, Rita had just revealed a deep fear of hers to him. She was vulnerable, yet, she felt a sensual connection with Nosa.

💕💕💕💕💕💕

She laughed, and he felt his chest expand, happy that he had thrown some humour into a horrible memory. 

They stood that way, locked in each other’s arms, drawing comfort from each other.

Slowly, Rita rose to her tiptoes and brushed a soft kiss to his lips. Nosa froze. 

His heart slammed into his chest. He could feel the sensual change in the atmosphere. His heart began to pound rapidly inside his rib-cage, but he remained still, immobilised by a mixture of need and dread—the intense desire to, and fear of getting, lost in her embrace.

“Kiss me, Nosa,” Rita spoke in a hoarse whisper.

“Rita…” he protested weakly. He didn’t want to take advantage of her grief, of her trust. He tried to pull away, but she was having none of it. She secured her arms around him and pulled him closer. 

“Kiss me, Nosa,” she whispered again.

Nosa’s gaze dropped to her full lips. They were parted slightly, welcoming, and pleading. He would oblige her, kiss her and let her go. Just one kiss and he would let her go. He couldn’t deny her this request. How could he? When he also wanted a taste of her succulent lips.

Heart hammering, he lowered his lips to hers and kissed her gently. The soft throaty sound she made scrambled his resolve. With a deep groan, he sought her mouth again. 

This time, his tongue probed her mouth, which she opened without hesitation, allowing his to tangle deliciously with hers. Her lips were soft, her mouth wet, sweet, enchanting.

💕💕💕💕💕💕

I hope this warmed you up a bit. And if you’re already warm, I hope it stoked the fiery flames within.😉

First Kisses— Starting Over Again

This week, I’ll be sharing the first kiss between Onome and Nnamdi from my #romancenovel Starting Over Again.

In this scene, Nnamdi  visited Onome to inform her about the outcome of an account they had been both worked on securing for their investment bank. 

A strictly business visit. 🤔Or was it? 

💋💋💋💋💋💋

“Did we get the account?” Onome asked nervously, scrubbing her sweaty palms over her bright green cotton shorts. 

He hesitated, his facial expression serious. 

Onome’s heart sank. She had let him down, let the bank down. Her stomach knotted with trepidation. “We… we didn’t get it?” she mumbled hesitantly. 

His lips twitched momentarily, then cracked into a disarming smile.

“Congrats, Onome, you have brought in your first account.”

“Oh my God!” Onome exclaimed, jumping in delight. “I have been so anxious, oh my God!” 

He opened his arms, and without a thought, she ran into his outstretched arms, wrapping her arms around him. He lifted her, twirled her around briefly before gradually lowering her on her feet.

“I’m so proud of you, Onome.” His deep baritone resonated within her.

“Thank you for letting me do this. I have actually missed doing this, hustling for accounts.” 

They stood that way, locked in each other’s arms as moments ticked by, neither of them making any move to break the connection. Slowly, the atmosphere between them shifted from elation to sensual awareness. Their eyes locked. His brown eyes, darkened now, dipped to her lips.

“I’m going to kiss you,” he murmured. He sounded as if he was warning her, giving her a chance to back away from him. 

Onome had no such desire. She had dreamt of kissing him countless times, been consumed with the desire to feel his full lips glide over hers, spent nights wondering if he kissed softly and sweetly or if he plunged in, hard and rough, taking, demanding—

Before she could complete that train of thought, his mouth descended on hers. Onome parted her lips without hesitation, welcoming the intrusion of his tongue into her mouth

First kisses— Thorns And Roses

This week, I’ll be sharing the first kiss between Ifeoma and Chuma from the #RomanceNovel, Thorns And Roses.

This scene happened after they returned from a boat ride that Chuma had convinced Ifeoma she needed for relaxation.

They were friends at first, but this kiss may have completely changed the dynamics of their relationship.

💋💋💋💋💋💋💋💋

She placed a soft kiss on his cheek.

Chuma was startled by the sudden physical contact. 

Ifeoma appeared shocked by her own impulsivity. 

Slowly, she turned towards him so that they were facing each other. He could see the pulse at the base of her neck pounding. It matched the rapid pounding of his own heart. 

She kissed his other cheek and retreated, giving him a nervous smile. Chuma froze, not moving, not trusting himself to move.

Rapid emotions filtered through her large expressive eyes; surprise, fear, panic. And then he saw desire. 

Placing her palms on his chest, Ifeoma touched her lips to his. A very soft touch and then retreated again. 

Chuma tried to keep still, his body was ablaze with want, but he couldn’t move, didn’t want to. It was killing him, but he didn’t want to do anything to drive this moment along. 

He waited, his heart fluttering at a dangerous rate, his body alert and poised. She repeated the kiss, this time flickering her tongue over his lips. 

This pushed Chuma over an invisible edge, and with a deep groan, he captured her mouth with his.

An alternative narrative

This picture puts a huge smile on my face. I saw it on Instagram and had to share.

I don’t know any of these women but they all graduated as medical doctors in a University in Northern Nigeria.

From their attires, I believe they are beautiful Muslim women.

Why am I pleased? 

This is an alternative narrative showcasing educated Muslim women from Northern Nigeria—A narrative not often shared.

I must confess, I grew up mostly in southern Nigeria, and have very little experience of the core Northern women, their lives, struggles and triumphs.

All I know is from second hand information and the media. And that narrative is of subdued women who rarely have the chance to get a good education.

There may be women who are in that category, but this picture shows a different story. And I’m here for it.

It’s inspired a novella in my head.

I’ll need a beta reader who knows about the Northern part of Nigeria and about Islamic religion with respect to women well enough to guide me, so that I can tell that story properly.
