Spotlight on Tease by Deatri King-Bey + eGift copy

Today I'm excited to have author Deatri King-Bey as my guest. She writes African-American/Multicultural Women's fiction from contemporary romance to fantasy fiction. Please give her a very warm welcome. Over to you Dea. I'm also offering one lucky commenter an eBook copy of her latest novel TEASE at the end of the week. So make sure you leave a comment.
People often ask me what I love about writing. It’s always been difficult to explain. I often say that I write to keep the voices in my head silent. I tell their stories. I’m joking, kind of sort of. When I write, the characters become real. I know everything about them and their lives and they keep me entertained. Yep. I’m a tad bit of a nut, but it works for me. LOL.

Anywhooo, one of the things I love about writing is sharing the characters that are in my head with you. If after you’ve read one of my titles, you wonder what this or that character is up to, I’ve done a good job.

A year ago, I released the first book in my traditional romance series, The Write Brothers. I write romance, so you probably think that’s no big deal. Yes, I write romance, but not traditional romance or series romance.  Readers have contacted me about my previous novels and characters they enjoyed, but this series was different. It was like the characters truly came to life for the readers. The reader response has been off the charts for love of this family. I think I’ve figured out why. Over the year and three previous titles, they got to know the family slowly and look forward to what they would do next.  So what’s next? I recently released the final title of the series, Tease.

If you’ve enjoyed the first three titles, from what I’ve heard, you won’t be disappointed Tease. For those of you who haven’t tried the series, I’ve also released an eBox set of the entire series. Below is information about Tease and the eBox set. I hope you give it a try.

Tease Book Blurb:

After Eva caught her fiancĂ© in bed with her cousin, she swore she'd never be played for the fool again. Now the ultimate bed-hopper—Tyler Write, has set his sights on her and she’s having difficulty resisting him.

Tyler can have any woman except the one he truly wants—Eva Simpson. Smooth lines and sweet talk won't work with her. To have a chance at Eva’s heart, he’ll have to show her who he really is.

Purchase this eBook from Amazon, Barnes & Noble. The print version will be released in a few weeks.

Tease Book Excerpt:

Heart rate increasing, Eva prayed she didn’t trip and make a spectacle of herself as they approached Tyler. All of Gloria’s sons were the epitome of tall, dark and handsome, but Tyler… No wonder women found him so irresistible. 
Yep, she’d heard the rumors of his conquests in bed. One of the women in her circle was proud he’d chosen her, even if only for one night. But what impressed her more was how he’d treated her friend like a queen, made her feel special, like there was no other woman. This man is dangerous!

Dangerous to others, not her. Call her selfish and a prude, but she didn’t believe in sharing men or bed-hopping.

They rounded the table and approached him from behind.

Uncle Joe placed his hand on Tyler’s shoulder. “Tyler, this is Eva Simpson, our hostess for the evening.”
Tyler turned and stood with his hand held out. “Pleased to meet you.”

“The pleasure is all mine.” Literally. She amended her previous thought. This man is dangerously sexy! Up close and personal, she completely understood why women threw themselves at him. Other women, not her. But that didn’t mean she couldn’t dream, and boy did she see some doozies in her near future. “Do you mind if I sit?”

“Not at all.” A complete gentleman, Tyler pulled out a chair for her and gently pushed it in as she sat.

“Thank you.”

“I need to get on back to the kitchen.” Uncle Joe walked off.

“I wanted to thank you personally for helping us switch over to solar energy. The entire Write family has been so generous. I’ll never be able to repay you.” She spotted her multi-millionaire parents heading for the coatroom. They hadn’t given one cent, one minute of their time or had one good thing to say about Next Generation.

“I wish I could do more.” He leaned toward her slightly, and whispered, “Is something wrong?”

“Honestly, yes, but this is our night. All that matters is getting the word out about your company and raising funds for my school.”

Her father escorted her mother toward the exit with his hand placed lovingly at the small of her mother’s back. In the big scheme of things, she reckoned she should be thankful they made an appearance. They never had in the past. But then again, Uncle Joe had serious connections and had invited everyone who was anyone in the renewable energy world—including her father, the head of the State Energy Conservation Office. Had he not attended, he would have looked like a fool.

“Who are they to you?”

“I’m sorry, I’m being rude.”

“Is she your mother or your aunt? I can tell she’s some relation. You’re just as beautiful as she is. You’re going to age nicely.”

Flattered, her face heated with embarrassment. “Thank you. I guess I resemble my mother some.”

“People say I look like my dad spit me out of his mouth.” He nodded toward Tex and Gloria. “Sometimes I wonder where these crazy sayings come from.”

“You’re both very handsome men. You’re going to age nicely.”

Perfect white teeth framed by dark skin and luscious lips had always been a favorite of hers, and he sure knew how to work a smile.

“A quick thinker. I like that.” 

SONS 4 SALE (Write Brothers Series eBox Set): If Gloria Write hears “There are no good Black men…” one more time, she’ll scream. She has four sons who fit the bill and not one is married.  Desperate times call for desperate action. During the course of four novels, Gloria sets out to ensure her sons marry. The eBox set includes all four Write Brother novels.

Purchase the eBox set for $7.99 or each novel for $2.99 from Amazon or Barnes & Noble.

  9. Wandered over thanks to a tweet from Morgen Bailey @morgenwriteruk. Looks like an interesting and somewhat off piste read compared to my usual diet of crime, chick lit and sci fi.

    1. I hope you give it a try, Tony. And Sci-Fi is my favorite genre. Isaac Asimov is my all time favorite author.

      Have a great day.
