I wrote this post Facebook and wanted to share it with my fellow bloggers.
Happy Hump Day, folks! Today, I’d like to shine the spotlight on my friend and fellow interracial romance author, Serenity King!
Take a peek at her new release, Simply Pleasures.
A defense attorney working for Cameron, Cameron & LaSalle, P.C., Alisha Carrington, hasn’t dated anyone since she was betrayed by her fiancé. Too afraid to risk her heart again, she has vowed to dedicate her life to building her career. Unbeknownst to Alisha, she has caught the eye of two very powerful men, Tristan Cameron and James Langston.
Tristan is more than a drop-dead gorgeous attorney. Undercover for the FBI, he has been using his family’s law practice in Atlanta as his front. Although he loves women, his undercover work is just too dangerous for him to commit to one woman. Summoned to New York by his brother, Tristan comes face-to-face with the one woman who can make him rethink his vows against commitment—Alisha. He’s tried to resist his attraction to the sexy African-American for years, but when Alisha’s life is threatened, he vows to keep her safe…and the powers-that-be help them both.
Tristan noticed the ebony beauty as soon as she opened the door. He sucked in his breath in admiration. He had noticed Alisha every time he had come into the New York office, but he had kept his distance. She was another reason he stayed away. He knew that she had no idea of his interest in her, and he wanted it to remain that way. Anyway, it seemed that whenever he came within a few feet of the lady, she would turn and go in the opposite direction. His brother, knowing him as well as he did, had evidently picked up on his interest in Alisha. So that’s her name—and she’s single, apparently. He’d never known her name. Had never bothered to find out. Just knew that he’d had a strong physical attraction to her. Up close, she was even prettier than he’d originally thought.
Maybe New York isn’t so bad after all. Tristan heard her speak and was floored. Her smoky voice turned him on. He couldn’t keep his eyes off her. He could feel Brandon staring him and couldn’t care less. Well, Damn! Tristan thought, surreptitiously looking at her in admiration.
There she was in the office of the partners, standing tall with her head up like she didn’t have a care in the world. Most people, when called to one of their offices, were scared shitless that they had done something wrong, but not Ms. Alisha Carrington. In fact, she looked mad as hell that he was gawking at her openly.
He knew he should stop, but she was even more beautiful up close. Tristan loved the fact that she appeared to have some fire to her, too.

Alisha said, “Hello David…Mr. Cameron.”
“How are you, Alisha?” David said.
“I’m fine. You?” She was starting to feel uncomfortable and self-conscious under Tristan’s scrutiny, and a little irate, but she couldn’t help feeling a bit flattered and turned on at the same time. Resolutely, she turned and looked at Brandon, “Hello, Brandon. Betty said you wanted to see me?”
“Uh, yes, Alisha. Thank you for seeing me on such short notice. Have a seat,” Brandon said, motioning for her to take the unoccupied seat next to David.

The very talented Jade Kerrion interviewed me earlier this year, and I must say I enjoyed every bit of it. We touched a little on my writing process, the Dragon Queen Series, and the ups and downs of my career.
“When I started writing, my goal was to answer the reader’s call, to make characters relatable to people from different backgrounds. I’d like to believe I achieved that in the Dragon Queen series.”

Last night I had the pleasure of being interviewed by the entertaining host, William Hayashi for Genesis Science Fiction Radio.
I had a blast!
It took me a minute or two to relax, because I was soo nervous, but William made it easy. And of course I was sipping on wine the whole time, so that helped too. 😉
William is an incredible person. During the interview, I felt as though I was talking to a friend I’ve known for years, and I’m all too anxious to do it again.
We have discussions about the Dragon Queen Series, my writing process, my influences, inspirations, and my all-time favorite subject, SEX.
Check out the interview below. Click on the link and press play.
Thank you to all the readers who tuned in for the show last night. 🙂 Your support will always be cherished.
This is a clip of a tale I’m working on with the brilliant and very talented Pachet Burson. She’s a new author in the game. Once you read her work, I guarantee you will not forget her. 🙂
“What have I done?” I stared at my phone, chuckling as I made my way down the hall. My stride was unhurried, even though every nerve in my body vibrated in eagerness of my impending rendezvous. I wanted to run, but I kept it cool.
A brunette sashayed in my direction as I headed for the bank of elevators. A thigh-high dress hugged her lean curves; six-inch pumps made her claves look kissable.
Pressing the up button with my thumb, I winked at her.
The clack of her heels on the tiled marble floor slowed, her smile widened and her bright blue eyes glimmered in what many would call pure lust. By her strut alone, I could tell those panties were soaking wet, if she were wearing any at all. She looked like the type who went commando every now and then.
I inhaled deeply, imagining her ripe scent beneath the expensive perfume.
“Hi, Mr. Devarati,” she breathed out on a sigh that lingered like a moan. “I’m wondering if you have a moment…”
“Not today, darling.” Smiling at her, I stepped onto the elevator. On any other day, I would’ve invited her up to the suite just to see how wet her panties were, but I had a dangerous lady assassin waiting for me.
Or at least, I hoped.

The passage I’m writing today is of a darker nature. It’s for a steampunk story, one I have yet to name.
I’m inspired by the song Get Along with You by Kelis
