What is your novel about?
Accidental Deception is a story about love versus loyalty, the tug-of-war that dictates every action Carter Williams will take after he stumbles upon a homeless woman, Shayla Kline, in Uptown Charlotte. Completely out of character for the usually self-centered bachelor, he puts his life on hold to spend a few nights with the stranger in the hospital.
That’s when he makes an earth shattering discovery – Shayla was the fiancée of Jacob, his estranged brother. His brother who hated him. His brother who recently committed suicide. His brother who, despite the animosity between them, wrote him a suicide note asking him to take care of Shayla.
Out of guilt and fulfillment of his brother’s final wish, Carter takes Shayla into his home, with every intention on helping her get back on her feet. But he makes an already complicated situation even messier when he begins to fall in love with her, desperately wanting to be a man for her, to give her everything his brother could not.
His morals tell him to be loyal to his brother, but his heart urges him to love his brother’s woman. The two opposite forces battle it out within him, creating an internal showdown that even he can’t referee. He knows what he should do, but it’s hard to walk away from the only woman that has ever been this close to his heart.
