LOS ANGELESStraight From My Heart, the sophomore entry in West Coast Productions' nascent Black Romance series, comes to stores Monday, April 23.

Directed by Bishop, the title stars Lavish Styles, Nyomi Banxxx, Jada Fire, Jade Nacole and Tila Flame, opposite leading ebony actors Mr. Marcus, Lexington Steele, Rico Strong, Nat Turnher and Prince Yahshua.

Like series premiere Color of Love, Straight From My Heart is comprised of romantic vignettes about such passion-igniting scenarios as a birthday breakfast in bed, a wedding proposal and an anniversary outing in the park.

"I made sure to keep the sex hot, but I also added a touch of passion to it as well," Bishop told AVN. "There's plenty of rubbing, petting and kissing, and the ladies are just as much in control as the men. It needed to be fun, yet mature, and I believe I reached that goal. I enjoy creating the Romance titles. It's a fun breath of fresh air."

Bishop said WCP plans to release a new Black Romance title every three to four months.
