Then Viacom acquired BET and there were even more changes. In 2005, BET Books and its authors were sold to Harlequin Enterprises and so Harlequin's Kimani Line was born. By then a lot of "street lit" had had hit the market, and to quote the then publisher, Linda Gill, readers of color were looking for more sexy, sophisticated stories mirroring their lives. Mavis Allen, my editor instilled in us the need to have the series include “rich, realistic, and emotional romances that featured innovative plots and appealing characters who have 'professionally made it', and yet are still seeking love."
