Sapphire Attraction (The Drakes of California)


As with all of my novels, I want readers to be entertained and inspired. I want them to feel they've gotten a peek into someone's life and maybe learned a lesson or two from what the characters have learned or endured. More than anything, I want them to fall in love with my work, and since Zuri means "beautiful" in Swahili, I want them to always have a Zuri Day!

Zuri Day is a bestselling, award-winning author. Her novel What Love Tastes Like was nominated for a RT Book Reviews award for best multicultural novel. Her next novel for Kensington/Dafina, Driving Heat, will be released in April 2015.
