They say that once you go black, you never go back. I am not completely sure who “they” are, but they obviously never met me. I guess that maybe I am an exception to the rule. I went black, and then I went back.
Maybe that sounds cynical. Maybe that sounds flippant. Maybe that even sounds racist. But I am none of those things. I am just a realist, who through an unfortunate turn of events, learned the hard way that everything is in fact black or white. At least for me it is, and always will be.
But then there is Calvin King. The thorn in my side, the pain in my ass. He is what some would call the perfect man – an imposing businessman, an even more impressive ladies’ man. Every man wants to be him and every woman just wants him. At least that is what I hear. I’m not admitting to anything beyond that.
What I do know and will concede to, is that my resolve is tested as soon as I meet Calvin. He ticks every box off my checklist – sexy as sin, tall, dark, rich, intelligent, funny, and…Black. My body craves just the thought of him. How can I possibly keep him at arm’s length when he is the only man I want and desire? And it doesn’t help that he kisses like a god and sets my body on fire. Crap! Don’t ask me how I know that, he doesn’t play fair.
Most importantly, I can’t let him unmask me, it’s my only defense. Like I told you before, I already went black, and I am so not going back.
Unmasking Charlotte is book 2 of the Taboo Love series and picks up where Hey There, Delilah left off. For this taboo, we tackle interracial relationships. As with Hey There, Delilah, it is a standalone – so don’t worry if you haven’t read Hey There, Delilah, yet – with a HEA. That means no cliffhanger! Oh, and expect to see some of your favorite characters.
Release Date: March 2014
I just sat down at my desk when my phone beeps, letting me know I have a text. I glance at it where it’s sitting next to my computer and see that it’s Delilah, so I pick up my phone and swipe my thumb across the screen to open it up.
Lala: Meet me for lunch. We need to finish our chat!
Charlie: I’m really busy today, rain check?
Lala: You will not avoid me Charlie! Lunch today, 1:00!
Charlie: I’m not avoiding, veerrry busy…
Lala: Don’t make me start tweeting to the whole world that you named your vibrator, Shemar
I gasp out loud, That bitch!
Charlie: Don’t you dare bring Shemar into this!
Yeah, that’s right, I named my vibrator Shemar, after Shemar Moore from Criminal Minds. Can you blame me? That man is fine!
Lala: And don’t think I didn’t notice that Calvin looks an aweful lot like Shemar Moore. Coincidence? I don’t think so! :}
Oh no! She wouldn’t.
Charlie: I don’t know what u are talking about
Lala: I am pretty sure that Calvin follows my twitter. Just sayin’
Charlie: You wouldn’t!
Lala: Try me! Lunch 1:00, TODAY!
Lala: Great! See you then 😉
I snarl at my phone. Delilah can be an evil bitch sometimes. I know she means well, but still, she’s threatening to tell the whole fucking world about Shemar.
Andria Large Bio
Andria is married and a stay at home mother with two crazy little girls and two psychotic cats. She doesn’t go anywhere without her precious iPhone and a purse full of animal crackers. She used to be obsessed with the Backstreet Boys, but now is only mildly obsessed (still goes to every concert when they are in town). She loves cartoons and Disney movies, and can probably recite every line from Dumb and Dumber. Humor is a must in her life; otherwise, it would be completely boring. Pepsi is her weakness, along with anything chocolate. She can’t sing to save her life, but she pretends she can when she is alone in her car with the music blasting so that she can’t hear herself. And don’t mess with her family because she will fuck you up. She loves to read Romance. Paranormal, Scottish, Military, Police, Firefighters, Athletes, Cowboys and M/M are her favorite. She is not so much a fan of YA, though. If you haven’t been able to tell from reading her books, she likes – whether she is reading them or writing them – lots of hot steamy sex. Andria loves her fans and is always willing to chat. She works hard on her books, does not get offended easily, and has a pretty thick skin when it comes to negativity toward her work. She welcomes constructive criticism because she feels that is how one betters themselves, by taking that constructive criticism and using it. Andria’s books are her art, they are pieces of her, and she can only hope that people will like what she does. For those who don’t, she asks that you be respectful of her art. You don’t have to like it, but you don’t have to be mean about it either.
Hi! My name is M.D. Saperstein. I am currently a stay at home mom with my two gorgeous kids. I wasn’t always a full time mom, though. After graduating from the University of Florida – Go Gators! – I attended law school at Stetson University. I spent the next 10 years practicing law. I also spent some time counseling mental health patients in an out patient psychiatric hospital. But, until having my own children, my most rewarding job by far was licensing families to receive abused and neglected foster children.
So, that brings us to today. In my spare time, while my children were napping, I started editing novels for other authors. The more I edited, the more ready I felt to write my own. I just needed a new and exciting story line. Once Hey There, Delilah was conceived, the ball starting rolling very quickly. I hooked up with fellow author Andria Large, and we decided to tackle it together. Best decision ever!
I spend most of my free time with my husband and children. But when I get some “me” time, I love to read. Mostly romance and erotica, but I don’t discriminate – a good book is a good book, no matter the genre.
