The California Saga by Chunichi

Michael Burroughs leaves L.A. and heads to Virginia Beach where his high grade product is quickly picked up all over the East Coast. He becomes known as the California Connection, or Calico, for short. Of course, he's also suave with the ladies and knows how to get what he wants from them, so when he meets Jewel, it doesn't take long for things to heat up and get out of control. Eventually his true nature is revealed and Jewel knows exactly how to get revenge.

She takes over the streets and starts making money hand over fist. Problem is, she's not interested in sharing this empire with anyone else. When Operation California Connection, an investigation run by the feds, starts closing in on her, she realizes things may be over all too soon.

When all is said and done, Jewel is left with a man on the run and a pending federal case to deal with. But she's only concerned about one thing--giving her unborn child the best possible life, one without drugs and lies. She puts her street savvy to work and attempts to gain back all that she's lost.

Revenge. Retaliation. Snitching. Money. Power. That's the California Saga.

On the lam in Memphis, they find out that Reggie, Naomi's brother, is being held hostage on account of the high potency cocaine scam Naomi was running.

He comes up with a pretty involved plan which adds a spy movie-like twist. The story shifts between Naomi and Damian's points of view and we find out just how afraid and anxious they are about the Mexican mob and finding the five million they need to get Reggie back. They look to each other for distraction and Naomi is pleased when Damian promises he'll do anything, even die, to protect her. But when she feels her family is threatened she becomes one heck of a fierce mama bear.
