Author Deatri King-Bey is guest posting on my blog today about her latest romance novel, Stolen Heart:
What Would You Do?
I love the show What Would You Do. In it, everyday people witness something that should illicit a reaction. They don’t know they are being taped to see what their reaction will be. For example, they had an actress break an expensive bottle of wine in front of a customer when the manager was away. The manager comes back and the actress then blames the dropped bottle on the non-English speaking janitor (another actor). The actor is then fired! Will the customer speak up? Some did, some didn’t.
We all love to believe we would do the right thing, but that’s often easier said than done.
What would you be willing to do for the well-being of your family? Would you lie, cheat, steal, murder? Did you have the gut reaction of saying no, no, no, no to all four? Are there circumstances you can imagine where you’d step onto that slippery slope?
That’s where the heroine in my latest romance novel, Stolen Heart, finds herself. She’s done things in her past for the survival of her family. She wants to believe she’s doing the right thing, but is she? When you fall in love, do you reveal all of your past and when? Even if you’ve given up that life? What if your past comes back to haunt you?
What would you do?
Stolen Heart: Desperate times call for desperate measures!
In the midst of a desperate time, Taylor Paige reverts to a life of crime; however, the tables have turned and it’s Taylor who ends up missing a most valuable possession. She falls in love with her target, and he steals her heart.
As CEO of a multi-billion dollar company, Mike Hughes appears to be at the top of the world. In reality, he longs for something he has never had, a loving family. When Taylor Paige drops into his life he thinks his prayers have been answered, but then he discovers her extra-curricular activities and sets out to save the woman he loves from herself. The problem—she doesn’t believe she needs saving.
I’d love to discuss the dilemma Taylor finds herself in and what you would have done. I hope to hear from you after you finish reading Stolen Heart. Visit me online at http://www.DeatriKingBey.com
