Langston Collingsworth is the President of Collingsworth Oil. His job is normally geared to the oil business side of things. When a young girl comes knocking at his door asking him for help to find her mother, she enlists Langston’s help.

Trish Cantrell lives with her teenage daughter, Gina, and owns a boutique. After a carjacking that leads to a mystery tape, and her life being jeopardized, Gina turns to the only man who can save her mother.

Trish has not slept well since her abduction in a restaurant parking lot at gunpoint. The carjacking shook her so badly; she has not worked for two days. Now she is in the middle of danger involving a video tape and the cop who saved her life from the carjacking. Gina boards a Greyhound Bus and heads to the only man who can protect her mother. One thing no one wants to do is mess with Langston, or get in his way when he sets his mind on anything. Langston knows Trish from college days. She is a woman that is hard to forget. He promises to help Gina, which does not sit too well with some members in his family. Trish holds a secret that Langston is not aware. She remembers their kisses in the janitorial closest years past and their heated moments. Langston promises to help Trish but not allow his heart to be taken in by her again. When the real truth unravels about the carjacking and Gina, Langston wonders if he can bury the secrets of the past, and the deception, to live with the one woman that makes his heart complete.

24 Karat Ammunition is not only a thrilling suspense that grabs the reader but it is a tale of family and struggles, with moments where tears spilled in my eyes. Trish and Langston are refreshing characters that make this book so special. They carry an ache in their heart and a void that only they can fill. Gina is a great addition, along with Langston’s mother, who has a way of looking straight into the hearts of those she loves. Joanna Wayne creates a family empire, with a few endeavors, a villain who the reader hopes gets his just rewards, and secondary characters that add dimension to the storyline in this spinning read. This extraordinary heart-rending story leaves a great feeling inside.
