Let’s meet Drew Sanuels from The Cost of Deception, a new Romantic Suspense. Welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. I’d like to get to know you better. Let’s talk.
Introducing Drew Samuels
Please tell me about yourself.
Birthplace: Florence, Georgia
Profession: undercover cop
Tell us about yourself, please.
You don’t ask much of a guy, do you? I am 6 feet and fit. Some folks say I’m cut. I earned my six-pack. I have black hair like Sam and Esther, my older brother and younger sister. I wear my hair long. My Spider earrings let everyone know my street name, Spider. Some folks say I have whisky colored eyes. Depends on which color contacts I’m wearing.
I was a skinny teen in a family of athletes. Since I wanted to go to Georgia Tech with scholarship money I studied hard. In college I studied ROTC and learned I could run. Don’t talk about my time in the army, but it matured me in more ways than one. I thrived on the danger so much I became a cop when I finished my tours.
I didn’t fit in any groups in high school and I don’t regret it. I do love family, but I don’t need to start one for myself.
Who is the significant other in your life?
When the story begins, I don’t have one. When I make myself go to the 20th year high school reunion I see Tess, the one person I really remember. Man, that woman is hot and even better than she was as a teen.
How do you dress?
Besides my grungy jeans, tight tees, and spider earrings?
Please tell us about your education.
I have a degree in Electrical Engineering from Georgia Tech. I went ROTC all the way, so I went in the army as a Second LT.
What is your family like?
My family is lovin’ and a tad bossy. Mama and Daddy don’t know I’m a cop. They think I’m an insurance investigator, a waste for a Tech graduate. I haven’t told Sam, Luke, or Esther, but blabbermouth Esther figured it out. Well, she and Sam did. She and Sam worry about me, but Luke is too busy helping Daddy run the farm to worry about his younger sibs. My family would be called “good folks”. Sam has a wife and kid. Luke, the oldest, has a wife but no kid, a huge problem in his marriage.
Can you keep a secret? Why or why not?
Hell, lady, I Iive with secrets I wish I could tell!
How do you handle challenges?
I hit ’em head on!
When (if) you lie or are upset, what gives you away?
My sister says she can tell, but no one else can. I’m a pro at lying.
What would you like to tell your writer?
Took long enough! Sam is so boring you didn’t have to write his story first. Finally publishing my book!
The Cost of Deception
Genre Romantic Suspense
Book heat level: (R )
The Cost of Deception is a romantic suspense with a lot of family interaction. Tess is a widowed mother and a teacher. She has been so wrapped up in her role as a mother that she has forgotten how it feels to be a desirable woman. Attending her 20th year high school class reunion, the first she’s ever attended, changes that when she meets Drew Samuels. She and Drew were the class loners and too involved in studying to feel the hormones that attack teens. Drew is now an undercover cop in Atlanta, GA. During his years in the military he had no concerns about marriage and starting his own family. His life put him in danger and he liked things that way. He was no longer the nerd who had attended Georgia Tech.
Seeing Tess at the class reunion made him rethink what he really wanted. She loves her children more than anything else and he respects that. He doesn’t know how to make his career work with the things Tess and her kids make him want. Yes, there will be hot sex and danger will stalk her family.

Mary Marvella Social Media
Mary Marvella has been a storyteller for as long as she can remember. She made up the “Let’s Pretend” situations for the neighborhood kids. The arrival of the book mobile was as exciting as hearing the music of the ice cream truck, more, since she could check out books but seldom had the money for the ice cream. Her parents preferred letting her walk to the corner store for less money. She still pinches pennies.
When Mary’s daughter was small, story time often meant Mama made up stories. Now retired from teaching the classic works of the masters, Mary writes her own stories and reads modern novels. Georgia raised, she writes stories with a Southern flair.
