Bestselling author Travis Hunter returns with a stunning new novel about family, success, and just how far a man will go to protect those he loves.

Dallas Dupree is a one woman man. A handsome and successful teacher, he is both worshipped and envied in his Atlanta neighborhood and chooses to live and raise his daughter, Aja, in the ghetto where he grew up rather than desert his roots. The only problem is that the one woman for him--his beloved Yasmin--passed away giving birth to his daughter. Now Dallas struggles through a string of empty relationships, unable to commit his heart because no woman can measure up to Yasmin. However, when Dallas plays with the wrong woman, he finds the consequences may cost him much more than he can afford.

Dallas's sister Carmen has issues of her own. All of her life she has struggled with a weight problem that had caused a lack of self esteem. Now she is an affluent doctor who lives in the suburbs with her handsome new husband, Sterling. When a family crisis forces her to take in her wayward niece, she realizes that the picture perfect world she worked so hard to create is an illusion.

Their older brother, Priest, is pretty secretive about how he makes his money--and he does make a lot of it. He has been a father figure to both Dallas and Carmen, but now that they are all grown up, they want nothing to do with their shady older brother. But when Dallas and Carmen are in trouble, they turn to the one person who has always been there for them--and learn there is more to Priest than meets the eye.

Excerpts-
  • From the book ARE YOU MY DADDY? "Are you my daddy?" a soft voice asked. Dallas Dupree felt someone standing over him. He popped up in the bed and looked around the strange room for the speaker. His naked body was covered with sweat.

    Where in the hell am I?

    Dallas felt someone stir beneath the covers. His heart raced. Joy and fear took over. "Yasmin," he said softly. Then he looked down at the naked woman beside him and jumped. He rubbed his eyes and his head throbbed.

    Things started slowly coming back into focus and he promised himself that he'd never take another shot of tequila for as long as he lived.

    Last night, he and his coworker Kenya went to Cafe Intermezzo in downtown Buckhead to have a few drinks. Dallas ordered a round and tried to keep the conversation from venturing too far into his personal life because he wasn't ready to go there. But he knew the inevitable question would come.

    Why is a man like you single?

    And when it came, he shrugged his shoulders and said, "Don't know."

    But he did know and that knowledge hurt like hell. He started throwing back shots of tequila right and left, and before long Kenya didn't exist. Every so often he'd nod his head or grunt, but his mind was on Yasmin. The more he thought about her, the more shots he threw back.

    The next thing he remembered was waking up buck naked to a child's voice.

    Dallas glanced back at Kenya, who was still sleeping peacefully.

    They'd met two weeks ago when she walked into the teacher's lounge at Alonzo Crim High School. He was sitting alone at the lunch table reading a book called The Pact, about three young men who made it out of the inner-city projects to become doctors, when Kenya walked in wearing a dress so tight he could see her heart beat. Dallas was convinced that she was a former stripper. He introduced himself and knew within the first thirty minutes of their conversation that she wasn't his cup of tea, but her body--now, that was another story.

    Dallas hated the dating scene. All of this bed-hopping and trying to get to know someone was supposed to be over when he found Mrs. Right, but now Mrs. Right was gone and he found himself right back where he'd started. He took a deep breath, stood up and walked into the bathroom. He quickly washed up and then looked around for a towel; when he couldn't find one, he dried himself with some hard toilet tissue, which he was sure she had stolen from the school. He put a pinch of toothpaste on his finger, ran it across his teeth, and rinsed. He looked around the bathroom and grimaced.

    She's a filthy li'l something, he thought, looking at urine stains on the floor around the toilet and the dirty bathtub.

    Dallas walked back into the bedroom and quickly jumped into his clothes. When he reached down to put on his sandals, he noticed a used condom on the floor beside the bed.

    "Aw, damn! Why the hell did I have sex with her?" he mumbled as he picked it up and checked for leaks.

    Strange things happen to unattended sperm, he thought, taking the piece of latex back in the bathroom to flush it down the toilet. After he made sure it disappeared down into the swirl of water, he prepared to leave.

    He was passing through the living room, which was also messy, when he noticed a little boy with big brown eyes sitting quietly on the sofa with his arms wrapped around his knees. He looked up when he saw Dallas and his eyes showed confusion.

    "Hey, li'l fella," Dallas said, surprising himself. He walked over to the little guy.

    "Hi," the little boy said cautiously.

    "Why are you sitting here in the dark all by...

Reviews-
  • Mary J. Jones, PageTurner.net, Houston, TX "For the past three years I've hosted Travis's first event to kick off his book tour and bring together more than 100 readers to hear Travis talk about his latest novel. What can I say about Travis? He's charming, funny and makes everyone in that room feel important. He is also a favorite author at our annual African American Book Club Summit, a weeklong cruise during which book clubs and readers meet their favorite authors and discuss books. Any book club would be fortunate to read a Travis Hunter novel (I can't pick a favorite!) and meet him."
  • Johnnie Mosley, Renaissance Men, Memphis, TN "Travis writes the stuff that men want to read. He participated in our book club discussion over the phone and it was one of the liveliest we've had in a while. We've read all of Travis's books and they mirror our lives --our ups and downs, the good and the bad."
