The Last Prejudice by David Rivera Jr.
Publisher: Simon & Schuster Adult Publishing Group
Pub. Date: April 2009
ISBN-13: 9781593092351

From the bestselling author of Playing in the Dark — an erotic and romantic novel about how real love is measured by the size of your heart and not the size of your hips.

The three plus-sized women in The Last Prejudice find support in one another during the ups and downs of their juicy romances and chaotic lives. Noreen Klein is more than comfortable inside the smooth curves a size-24 frame enables. She’s an empowered diva who gets what she wants — including hot men.

On the other hand, Dahlia Ortega is a beautiful woman who is extremely insecure with her thick body. Recently coming out of an abusive marriage, the docile Dahlia is left with a raging thirst for dominance. Kat Davis once had a perfect body, but now has to contend with the additional sixty pounds she put on during her tumultuous pregnancy. She wrestles with releasing herself from a self-imposed emotional prison, to embrace the love she deserves. Follow these three women as they fulfill their insatiable sexual appetites and overcome the disheartening emotional challenges that trouble many full-figured women.

Fresh, thoughtful, and endlessly provocative, The Last Prejudice proves how biases against voluptuous women don’t exist when love and lust is in the air. Readers will be riveted by Rivera’s fast-paced and passionate writing style — a must-read for women of all sizes. Buy the Book
