SOME CAME DESPERATE is a spell-binding interracial romance saga that tells the story of two sisters and their white lovers in contemporary Miami. Simone is drawn to Nick Perry, a gorgeous, high-powered attorney who develops a long-lasting, sweet and enduring friendship with Simone. But when their platonic relationship turns sexual, and Simone discovers a secret about Nick’s life that renders her nearly suicidal, she knows something has to change. She leaves Miami, becomes a successful business owner in Atlanta, Georgia, and only return years later when her kid sister Shay is in trouble. Simone reunites with Nick and discovers that there is no will power within her that is strong enough to keep her from the man she loves too much.

Jules, the older sister, believe she’s found the answer to her dreams when she becomes Jeremy Druce’s one and only. He’s talented, great looking, and a renowned surgeon. He’s also abusive, possessive, and an alpha-male who wants nothing more than to parade Jules around as if she was a trophy he had won. But Jules endures his less-than-stellar treatment because her own ambitions, and her blind love for him, cannot allow her to move on.

In a continuing story of love’s ups and downs, SOME CAME DESPERATE chronicles interracial love in its barest human form, and takes the reader on a ride that can only be described as tumultuous. In Jules and Jeremy, Simone and Nick, we find four people determined to stay together despite overwhelming odds against them. And despite their own secrets and lies.


She looked so sympathetic, so caring, that he became a coward again. “Can you forgive me?” he couldn’t help asking her. “Can you ever forgive me, Simone?”
He didn’t expect her to respond. He didn’t deserve a response. He simply wanted her to know that he did hurt her, that he did do something that warrants forgiveness. But she responded.
“I forgave you the moment you did it,” she said. And that did it for Nick. He pulled her back into his arms, so tightly, with so much love that it smothered Simone. Then he pulled her face up to his and stared at that face, at that gorgeous, kind, wonderful face that he loved so much. And he kissed her. He kissed her in a way that he had hoped would be sweet and tender, but that felt so fantastic to him that it turned into a desperate passionate kiss.
When Simone began to respond to that kiss, and to let go the way Nick had let go, it caused him to want her in a way that dismissed all of the history of their pain, of their separation. He just had to have her.
He kept kissing her until he could not contain himself anymore. He picked her up, still kissing her face, her neck, her chest, as he carried her into the bedroom. His loins were throbbing and all he could think about was having Simone beneath him. He had to have her beneath him. He remembered when she was beneath him and he had made love to her. It was one of the happiest nights of his life. He loved Simone so completely that night that it frightened him. He felt that same way about her right now.
And that was why he laid her on the bed and immediately moved on top of her. He began kissing her again, this time even more passionately, even more desperately, that it caused Simone to nearly collapse in his affection. And the tears returned. She was going down that dark road again. And with this same man. And she felt powerless to stop it. Because she loved him so much. She still loved him. When she should have hated him.
He knew it too, as he couldn’t stop kissing her, and undressing her, and groaning for her. She should hate him, he thought, but not Simone. Simone was too good, too kind, to hate anyone. And he felt as if he was taking advantage. . .
