RNIC is pleased to welcome author Angel de’Amor to our site! Angel is introducing her novel, His Betrayal Her Lies and has a giveaway! First, let’s get to know Angel.
Angel, did you always want to be a writer? If not, what else did you want to do? No, being a writer was never something I considered. I kind of stumbled into this career. I was an accountant for eleven years and thought that was it for me. However; I remained a reader and before long, I picked up my pen and started to write. The make believe world you can create fascinated me and then my writing took on a life of its own.
Who would play you in the movie about your life and why? The first person came to mind was Jada Pickett Smith. I adore her and the life she portray. She has been married to her husband for a decade and she live and speak positive things to women of all color, age or ethnic background. I love that she is a good role model for single and married women. I have never heard anything negative about her character. I think Jada and I are somewhat alike and she can bring the full essence of me to life.
What type of music do you listen to? I listen to a lot of R&B music and contemporary pop. Some of my favorite artists are Usher, Justin Timberlake, Robin Thicke, Tyrese and NeYo. Just to name a few. However, I listen to a variety of music. Selena Gomez and Justin Biebers have some songs, I love to just sing in the shower. I just love music and you can find me bobbing my head to just about anything.
What types of books are on your bookshelf at home? Ha! This is an interesting question. I love romance books. My kindle consist of over a 100 romance novels. Although, in the last year my reading has switched to urban romance, erotica, and western romance. I’m first and foremost an avid reader and I learned that your reading will evolve over the years.
Which TV show(s) can you absolutely not miss every week? The TV show that will make me stop doing whatever I’m doing at the moment is Scandal. I love the writer’s on this show. It always leaves you wanting more. The Bachelorette/Bachelor is another show that sucks me in every season.
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would that be? A few places come to mind. Florida, Australia, and Paris.
Finish this sentence: You gotta love a man who… can cook. I think nothing is sexier than a man who can burn in the kitchen. It’s such a turn on and that’s how my husband won me over.
Why should readers consider buying your books? I know readers have a ton of choices when they decide to purchase a book. All I ask is for readers to give new authors a try. A fresh voice to the literary world can be exciting. That’s why I think readers should take a chance on new writers, you might just like it and yearn for more.
What does the area where you write look like? My office is on the second floor of my home. The room is surrounded by clothes and anything in the house that doesn’t have a place yet. I sit and stare out the window at my backyard and listen to the birds chirp. I put on Pandora and let my writing juices flow.
What can readers expect from you next? A lot of quality books. I love writing, so keep your kindle open for my next imaginary yarn.
Tell us about His Betrayal Her Lies
Sophisticated Taylor Briggs had her entire life planned out. Engaged to her college sweetheart, Ari Gallagher, Taylor learns a week before her wedding that her perfect life is all based on lies and betrayal. But being the daughter of the Mayor comes at a high price: Taylor’s life is not her own, and she has no choice but to go forward with the wedding. Ari commits the ultimate sin of unfaithfulness, but adds to the deception when he fathers a child by another woman. A string of events places Taylor’s life in danger and into the arms of the sexiest bachelor in Chicago, Kalon Knight.
Plunging heart-first into disaster, Kalon, who is short of being a player, has never believed in love or settling down. He now has his eye set on making Taylor his next conquest. Little does he know that Taylor is harboring a secret of her own in this twisted love triangle.
Will Taylor mend her relationship with her husband Ari and continue to live a lie? Or will she throw caution to the wind and embark upon a new journey of finding love with Kalon?
Taylor Gallagher knew better, knew that she shouldn’t go through with this but that twitch between her legs reminded her of all the amazingly erotic times she had shared with him.
An hour earlier, Taylor stood daydreaming, looking out the bay window in her kitchen, glad to be home from a long business trip. “This tastes so good,” she said aloud as she sipped her wine.
Drink in hand, she grabbed her purse and headed for the bedroom. The contents of her overloaded Michael Kors leather handbag rattled around as she tossed it onto the nightstand next to her bed. The three-inch heels she had toddled around in all day had worn out their welcome. She stepped out of them and began undressing, a trail of clothes marking her path from the bedroom to her master bath.
A hot bath was just what she needed. That and a few more sips of wine. After turning the water on full force in a Jacuzzi tub big enough to hold six people, she peeked back into the bedroom to see where she left her glass.
“There you are.” She retrieved the drink and placed it on the bathroom sink, then delicately submerged herself in the hot bubble bath. Laying her head against the pillow rest, she felt some of the day’s tension begin to melt away.
Just as she closed her eyes and relaxed, her Blackberry sounded off from the bedroom. At this time of night, it could only be one person. Her first instinct was to ignore it. But her curious side told her to get up and read the text message.
Against her better judgment, Taylor got out of the tub and wrapped a bath towel around her slender body. She swiftly tiptoed across the floor and into the bedroom, trying not to let too much water puddle around her feet. She reached for her purse but thought better of it and dried her hands before rummaging through the side pocket of the bag.
Retrieving the phone she pushed the view button. “Hey beautiful, I miss you and want to see you tonight.”
If heart rates were measured in miles per hour instead of beats per minute, hers was going way past the speed limit. She knew she should’ve pressed delete. But knowing and doing were two different things.
Shiny nails clicking against the keys sounded like Morse code as her thumbs tapped out “I miss you too, babe, and I want to see you.” She pressed the send button and waited for a reply. Within seconds, her phone sounded again. “Can you come tonight, babe?”
Taylor pushed aside her purse so she could see the nightstand clock. “Midnight,” she muttered. She had no business hooking up with him at all, let alone at this time of night. But flashbacks of all the things he could do to her body and the way he made her feel seemed to be calling the shots. “I’ll see you in forty minutes,” she typed back.
“Okay, babe. See you soon and please hurry.”
Why in the world am I doing this yet again? After her last session, she told herself that was it. But in the past year, her body seemed to yearn for him constantly. She couldn’t go through a single day without thinking about his “red light special,” as he called it. Every time she closed her eyes, he appeared naked and sweaty. All she wanted—all day, everyday—was him inside of her.
