In this scandalously provocative soap-drama series, deceit, seduction, and a tempestuous affair intertwines the lives of lascivious lovers who will go above and beyond to keep their sexual trysts a secret, but the curse of temptation will lead to revelations that may result in their own demise.
Still mourning the death of his lover, Denise, Greg Adams conspires to leave his wife. He believes that Denise has come back to him in the form of a woman named Naomi Brooks, and he can't forget her. But there's one problem--his wife is going to honor every line in their wedding vows until death does them part.
Naomi Brooks, a recovering alcoholic, enters into an orchestrated affair to deceive Greg by creating the perfect illusion. Will the plan work or will she find herself a victim in a twisted game?

When Jeff comes running to her rescue, it proves to be the perfect setup.
The real twisted games are just beginning.

"Daddy where's, Ebony?" Deandra asked the instant she walked through the door. She hadn't seen Ménage's car and Jeff knew she would be looking for her. Especially considering how well Deandra seemed to take to her.
"She's not here," Jeff said as he took his keys and cell phone out of his pockets and laid them on the table. "And she won't be back." Just that quick he'd saved himself from having to answer a million questions.
"But...I thought the two of you were getting married."
Jeff's face seemed to swell. "Married!" He'd banned that word from his vocabulary months ago. So as his cheekbones pushed his eyes into a squint, he looked at her wondering where in the hell that ludicrous idea had come from.
"Deandra, why would you think Ebony and I were getting married?"
"Because she told me you were."
Jeff snatched off his tie. The anger rising inside of him had his blood boiling. He clenched his jaws.
"Ebony told you we were getting married?" He wanting to make sure he'd heard her right the first time.
Deandra nodded profusely. Not an ounce of doubt in her face. "She told me I would be the flower girl and that Nadine..."
"Nadine?" Jeff shot.
"Yes, Daddy. She said that Nadine was going to be her maid and that she would get to hold her dress as she walked down the aisle."
"She lied to you, Deandra, and she used you for information!" He was furious.
Deandra appeared saddened. "Daddy, please don't be mad at me. She told me to pinky swear not to say anything because it was supposed to be a surprise."
Jeff shook his head and walked over to hug his daughter. "Daddy's not mad at you, baby. I'm mad at myself because I should have never brought her here." He kissed his daughter on the forehead. He wished like hell that he had seen this one coming. He was upset with himself more than anything because he'd given her the benefit of the doubt. He thought he was helping her. Now he wondered if she really had been robbed or if it was all part of her scheme to rob him.
"Go on and do your homework," he said. "I need to handle some business."
Jeff picked up his phone to call Nadine. He needed to fix this because she was the last person he wanted to believe this nonsense. Not so much that her input would have mattered had he chosen to walk that path again, but she deserved the truth. And the truth was, he wasn't marrying anybody. Not today, not tomorrow, or years to come.
"This is Nadine."
"Are you busy? I had something I needed to straighten out."
"Here, baby, let me get that for you," the male's voice in the background called out.
"Thank you," Nadine said, obviously switching her attention from Jeff to whoever she had been conversing with before his call.
Jeff froze in his steps. That was his son.
"Nadine where are you?"
"Jeff, can this wait until later?"
"Where are you with my son?" He didn't mean to sound as angry as it came out.
As if muffling her voice to speak, she asked, "What's so important that you need to talk to me right now?"
"I'm coming over."
"We're not home."
"I want to see my son!" Jeff could hear the rounds of laughter in the background and it made his stomach churn.
"Leonard, I'm going to step out for a minute, baby. I'll be right back."
Jeff could hear her heels patter across the floor. There was an echo as she moved from one area to the other, but even in the distance, Jeff could hear his son laughing, playing, and enjoying, this other man.
"What has gotten into you?" Nadine lit into him. "It's only Monday, and all of a sudden, you want to see your son."
"Don't do that."
"Don't do what? Tell you how I really feel for a change?" She didn't give him time to respond. "I'm sick of you playing part-time daddy to Canvas when it's convenient for you! He needs a father, Jeff. A father! So why don't you, Deandra, and your new fiancée, go on with your happy lives, and let me do what's best for my son. You can clock back in on Friday!"
The only reason Jeff knew Nadine had hung up the phone in his face was he no longer heard his son's laughter. And the only reason he realized how bad he had hurt her was because he could feel his own heart beginning to break as her words echoed in his mind. He could feel that double-edged sword being shoved deeply down his throat. That quickly she had diabolically cursed him with her anger and pain. Jeff could feel it in his bones. Every fucking ounce of it, he could feel. And the only way he knew the feeling consuming him was the real deal and not a false alarm, was when Deandra walked up to him with her homework in hand. Instead of asking for the help she was seeking, she said, "Daddy, why are you crying?"...to be continued in Twisted Vows of Seduction.
N'Tyse is the erotic romance author and ghostwriter of several bestselling novels. She is also executive producer and director of the upcoming documentary film, Beneath My Skin, which was filmed in her hometown Dallas, Texas. While N'Tyse, pronounced entice, spells out exotic seduction, the true significance behind her name takes on an entire new meaning. The acronym translates to Never Tell Your Secrets ―a message she envelops within her stimulating taboo tales. The author's passion for writing dates back to a very young age where she found poetry, music, and creative writing as an outlet of escape. In 2006 N'Tyse ambitiously penned and self-published her freshmen novel My Secrets Your Lies and its sequel Stud Princess Notorious Vendettas, which both went on to grace many bestsellers lists, including The Dallas Morning Newspaper and Black Expressions. Determined to see her works reach national and international audiences and markets, she pitched her junior novel to Zane. Twisted Seduction quickly landed N'Tyse a publishing deal with Strebor/Simon & Schuster. A private banker and financial counselor for over 12 years, N'Tyse now juggles her writing career as a fulltime mom, wife, and filmmaker, while also pursuing her bachelor's degree in creative/ screenwriting and business entertainment. Her literary contributions have been featured in magazines and several bestselling anthologies, including Zane Presents PP2 Missionary No More, Chocolate Flava 3, and Gutta Mamis. N'Tyse currently resides in Dallas, Texas where she is hard at work on her next novel and film project.
