Bettye Griffin was told by her English professor that she had a gift for writing and might want to consider pursuing writing as a professional career. She promptly dropped out of college and started crafting stories...and just 22 short years later sold her first book. Bettye writes both contemporary romance and women's fiction. A native of Yonkers, New York, Bettye has also lived in Florida and Illinois, and now crafts her compelling, drama-filled tales from her home in the great dairy state of Wisconsin. Bettye thoroughly enjoys Wisconsin's contributions to the American diet and often nibbles on cheese while writing, and she celebrates a good day of writing by having a glass of the beer that made Milwaukee famous.


Since 1998, Bettye has written 6 novels of women's fiction, including Once Upon A Project (2008) and A New Kind of Bliss (2009); and 11 contemporary romances, including A Love For All Seasons (2007) and A Love of Her Own (1999). In 2009, seeing the creative and financial freedom of publishing independent projects, Bettye started her own imprint, Bunderful Books, and to date has published two contemporary romances through this outlet, Save The Best For Last (2009) and The Heat of Heat (2010).

This is the first book I've read from this author. I enjoyed the story line and the development of the characters. I like reading interracial romance and this has been one of my favorites. I related to the female lead of living in North Dakota since I had worked in Fargo, ND for two months. The people were friendly but I stuck out everywhere I went. But, she didn't let that hinder her in trying new things and making friends. This will be a book I will keep in my library and read again.

I read this book with much love. Jon was really good to Miranda. I had to ask her online where did she get this storyline because there was so much feeling into it. It gave me another perspective on interracial dating. I hope Bettye does a follow up for us addicts!

A Kiss of a Different Color was a strong motivation for me getting an eReader and as I knew, it definitely did not disappoint. Ms. Griffin once again created a beautiful story that not only entertained but educated as well. Although the novel's main focus was on the interracial relationship between Miranda and Jon, the book also explored the beauty of diversity and how love can truly be colorblind. Ms. Griffin's interpretation of the dynamics of Jon's and Miranda's relationship was refreshing and such an enjoyable read it was hard to put it down. Once again Ms. Griffin scored again with this novel.

By: Bettye Griffin Published By: Bunderful Books Age Recommended: Adult Reviewed By: Arlena Dean Rating: 4 Review: "A Kiss Of A different Color" by Bettye Griffin was a good contemporary romantic read. It is a long slow read but in the end you will find a well developed story with likable 'characters that you were able to fall in love with as they did with each other.' This was a very interesting to see how this author was to get Miranda and Jon together...as they had an instant attraction to each other as they first danced together. There were be obstacles placed before them in this interracial relationship...'family's opinions, works' restriction on fraternization the their own personal baggage.' Be ready for a read of finding love in unexpected places where Jon was able to see 'hidden racial issues' while Miranda learned that John could be trusted with her heart. This was truly a love story and 'how attraction grows into a friendship and then into love.'

I read "Kiss Of A Different Color" twice and it was AWESOME!!!! I have only been reading romance novels around three years now. I have read 4 interracial romance novels by other authors but Betty's put theirs to shame! I know she put a lot in that book. I loved how she touched the various problems that interracial couples go through. Some authors have the same theme over and over. Bettye's writings are always different and I love that. Jon and Miranda's character were so real. I loved how both of their families analyzed their relationship both positive and negative with open minds.
