Harlem meets Puerto Rico in this spicy novel that explores true love and the truth about love... EXCERPT: Andre and I shared a boat ride under a starlit sky in Venice. Our gondolier paddled up the river singing an Italian love song. The streets were lined with gothic buildings that looked older than time itself. The charm of that ancient city partially submerged underwater took my breath away. I sipped from my glass of Cabernet Amadio and gazed into Andre's cocoa-colored eyes as they sparkled in the moonlight. His butterscotch complexion was sun kissed from our afternoon together at Lido di Venezia beach. I gazed at his succulent lips and the muscular body that made my body sing from every position. Andre was a living work of art, but our connection went deeper than physical attraction. Like me, he was also biracial. The son of a Haitian mother and French Canadian father, he had lived through the wonderful and painful aspects of existing between two worlds. Despite his 7 figure income as an international commodity broker, he was a humble and caring man whose generous heart reminded me of my father. Andre was definitely my soul mate. He took my hand and said, "Faith, I have something to tell you. I know it this may shock you, because I've been keeping this inside for a long time..." DESCRIPTION: Faith Thomas-Moreno is a proud daughter of Spanish Harlem.
