A slice of ghoul, a pinch of fools and stir-in some dark humor - what comes out is something Pretty Evil

When Sunnie takes her three foolish and self-absorbed male friends to see a piece of property they are interested in, the sparks will fly. This rundown mansion used to be an brothel, if only those walls could talk! If they could, they would say, run for your life, because a bad ass she-devil named Vixx and her sidekick ghoul, Cre’p, owns this place. Their hundred-year sentence is just about up and Vixx will stop at nothing to keep the three hunks from inhabiting her place. If Vixx has to sex-them-up and kill them, so be it! Now Sunnie is another story, that girl has God and some special mojo on her side. Sunnie has moxie and game, so Vixx, bring it on…girlfriend!

Sunnie and her three friends Rice, Coach, and Geffen grew up together. Rice, is a successful author that hides behind his writing persona. Coach, a professional, but injured football player. Then there is Geffen, a sharp-dressing businessman. What do these three men all have in common, other than Sunnie, they all need to grow-up and get the sinning out of their lives. Sunnie’s three male friends might be self-absorbed nincompoops, but to them, she is their “amira,” (in Swahilli it means princess).

Now if Sunnie can just get the fear of God into these fools and change their womanizing ways, her job is done – well almost. Sunnie is touched – no not crazy, but she has a gift and just knows things. Can Sunnie keep these three stud-muffins from Vixx’s clutches? Will she be able to redeem her friends? Sunnie’s faith will be sorely tested, her friendships will be on the line and much more…
