Guess who I have today on the NEVERENDING BLOG TOUR:
and her fun, fan-yourself fantasy book
Love My Fate
What’s a woman to do when a voice follows her home and makes mad, passionate love to her?
Daryl Devoré’s latest is a quirky paranormal urban fantasy – Love My Fate.
Corporate businesswoman, Capricious Gray, is dragged to a sex toy convention by her best friend. After a mysterious disembodied voice helps her with her purchases, it follows her home. Passion ensues, leaving Capri torn between lust for her fantasy lover and the desperate need for reality in her life.
Thall, son of one of the Fates, harbours the irrepressible need to be with the woman he’s desired from afar for years. In order to make her his, once and for all, he must help Capri get past her fears, including the fear of what he represents – a fantasy.
Can fantasy become a reality for these two lovers?
Note: This book was previously published by New Dawning Bookfair under the title Capri’s Fate. The edition has a new title, new cover and has restored previously deleted scenes.
Excerpt 1 – G rated
My erotic adventure began the moment he whispered, “Do you happen to own a pair of red, fuzzy handcuffs?”
~ * * ~
Well okay, it didn’t exactly start there. If I’m going to be perfectly honest, I think it started with Kat’s text: “Meet me at – insert name of five-star restaurant here.”
Kat’s always getting me to take her out for expensive dinners. I don’t mind, I’m a highly-paid executive, in a large global corporation, while she’s a receptionist in a small dental office. Besides, I like good food and her company.
Kat and I have been BFFs since third grade. We were in each other’s wedding parties and cried on each other’s shoulders at our subsequent divorces. Now, we’re each other’s go-to person whenever the mood strikes. Obviously, the mood struck and it involved my credit card. I texted back a reply –”Xavier’s. 6 pm.”

Kat waited outside the restaurant when my cab pulled up to the curb. “Timing or what? I just got here.”
After the requisite cheek kiss, we stepped up to the Maitre D’. He smiled his I-must-be-friendly-because-they’re-guests smile and escorted us to our table. We ordered drinks and chatted. We talked about the weather, her new dress, my job—you know, just old—no, scratch old, put long-time—girlfriend stuff.
After a diet conscious meal, followed by a calorie-loaded dessert, we waited outside for a taxi.
“Do you trust me?” With a goofy grin on her face, Kat’s dark chocolate mellowed-from-too-much-wine, eyes gazed at me.
Having seen that innocent demeanour before; it meant nothing but trouble. I was a bit wary. Okay, a lot wary! The last time she’d gawked at me like that and asked the same brainless question, we ended up at a frat house beer slosh during Homecoming and I wasn’t in college anymore.
A cab pulled up and stopped. She grabbed my arm and dragged me into it. “Convention Centre.”
I slid next to her and shut the car door. “What’s at the convention centre?”
“That’s the trust me bit.” She raised her hands and flicked two fingers up and down at the words trust me.
You have to love air quotes.
I checked my cell for messages then glanced at her. “Is this going to get me arrested? Again?”
She shook her head.
“Is it going to get me hit on—again—by horny, beer-soaked, college drunks?”
“Is that a yes or a no?”
“Nope. Not going to tell you. You need to trust me.”
6 Questions with Capri Gray from Love My Fate
- What is your full name and what do you do?
Capricious Gray – Capri for short and to add to that – I’m a Capri-corn.
At the start of my story I was an executive in a global corporation.
- How did you meet the man of your dreams?
That’s not easy to answer. The man of my dreams isn’t a man – sort of. We met at a sex toy convention.
- You obviously have to explain that!
My BFF, Kat, dragged me off to a sex toy convention. Her idea! And I heard this voice ask me to purchase something fun, something erotic and something dangerous. And it just went from there.
- So, did you buy something fun, something erotic and something dangerous?
Suffice it to say, I made interesting purchases that evening which may have happened due to the consumption of several glasses of champagne.
- Any advice for the readers of your story?
If you like deep drama that focuses on the angst of modern society – this is so not the story for you. This is my story – an average woman living an average life when out-of-the-blue highly unusual things start happening.
