Overview

Back in the welcoming arms of New York City after a tumultuous relationship, Sadira Cooper is ready to breathe again. It isn’t long before she finds herself entering the dating scene. As she struggles to understand the meaning of true love, Sadira has to confront a past that she'd fought very hard to forget. After a failed first attempt at reigniting an old flame she begins an affair with Olivia, but makes a fatal mistake that gets her trapped in Olivia’s web of destruction. This coupled with the return of her venomously sexy former lover leaves Sadira quickly approaching an unavoidable collision of hearts and shattering of lives.

Tainted Destiny is a suspenseful romance that paints a vivid picture of turmoil and passion. Sadira experiences every facet of emotion—fear, pain, love, anxiety and utter confusion as she is stretched from one extreme to another in trying to find a balance. Does Sadira have what it takes to survive the obstacles put in her path or is her destiny forever tainted?

She is one of the most popular writers of fiction that features, but is not limited to, African-American lesbian characters. Clarke is read by women, men, gays, lesbians, bisexuals and heterosexuals in the United States, Caribbean and the United Kingdom because her work delves into the most universal themes of love, life and friendship.

    Excellent Continuation...

    Continuing with the title character from Intimate Chaos, Cheril covers the facets of live that gays and particularly lesbians go through. You become completely oblivious to the the sexual orientation of the characters and get lost in the story thats being told. There is a lot more drama, pain and surprises which makes this a worthy read.
