But when he starts peeling them back will he be able to handle all he discovers? Find out in Under Covers.
Excerpt from Under Covers:
She slipped out of the office and down the corridor to her own space. Jordan must have heard her voice. He leaned lazily against the door frame, looking better in a collared shirt and jeans than the photo-shopped image of a bare-chested J. Cole that she had seen just moments earlier. Naomi felt the heat begin at her toes and travel all the way through her as their eyes locked.
How had she gotten this lucky?
“Good morning, Red.” His eyes devoured her as the distance closed between them.
He pulled her into his arms. Naomi sank into him willingly as he parted her smiling lips with his.
“Babe, the whole office can see us,” she murmured against his delicious mouth.
“Good.” He kissed her again. “Let them see what Black love looks like.”
About Rhonda’s Writing
I write African American inspirational fiction and the themes of my books cover real life, real love, and real faith. I chose to write in this genre because this is the context I live in. I am the single black female on a covert search for love and most of my friends are in this same place or were recently in this place. Truthfully, all the stories I write are based a little on true stories – not always my stories but usually of people I know. My faith is so central to who I am that I only know how to interpret life through the gospel of Christ and His amazing love for me. This is why it has to be a part of my writing. But at the same time I live in the real world where nothing is simple and love – even the best kinds – are often messy and complicated. But that is what makes life so interesting and that I think is what makes my stories fun for me to write and for others to read.
Rhonda Bowen knew she would be a writer as early as eighth grade when she wrote her first novel with a classmate in a dollar notebook. While waiting for the day to come she completed a degree in Communications and spent a few years working in Public Relations and Event Planning. Throughout this time however, her desire to write stayed alive. She eventually completed her first novel, Man Enough for Me, which was released under Kensington Books’ Dafina imprint in February 2011.
Several years, a stint in Asia and a career change to youth work finds her still writing. She has written four romance novels and her books have been featured in PUBLISHERS WEEKLY and LIBRARY JOURNAL. Her latest novel Under Covers was released March 16, 2015. She writes about the themes of Real Life, Real Love and Real Faith, weaving stories about strong women who must deal with life and love without losing themselves. Sometimes they succeed, other times they make a mess of things while trying.
When not writing or being schooled on what’s current by the youth she works with, she enjoys chilling with her family, trying on shoes she can’t afford, bargain hunting online on Asian clothes websites and enjoying the great outdoors.
