Love is Blind Blog-A-Thon Presents: Mahalia Levey
Posted by juliettesprings
Today I welcome interracial romance author Mahalia Levey!
I am biracial. I grew up seeing the best and worst in both worlds and the cultural difference. I’ve found it’s easy to understand the odds that some couples fight to find that forever love, and while I wish love crossed the boundary of color and culture. Personally the most hurtful comment someone made to me was that I wasn’t black enough for my fiance. I never paid attention to the different shades of color within my ethnicity. There’s nothing worse than struggling with racism within your own race where the shade of your skin can determine what clique you may fit into.
If color were blind, would couples find the strength that binds them together? Without struggle would finding that perfect person for us we worth it or would we not hold onto what was easily gained? Just some food for thought. I love all sides of my heritage and embrace the unsavory and the beautiful while having optimism that things can always improve and get better, that inherent goodness will prevail

Blurb for Trading Up:
Camilla’s deal breakers make finding a man to fit her wants, needs, and desires darn near impossible. For years she’s been primped and primed to be the perfect political daughter, when all she really wants to do is let loose without her world collapsing. When a friend sends her Madam Eve’s way, she grabs the opportunity to explore without being outed to the conservative watchdogs.
Jonah Black’s career is heading for a change. His friends have dubbed him married to the military, and he can’t deny that his focus has been off-center. While they enjoy the pleasures of life and wives, he has nothing to come home to. When offered the chance for a 1NS, he signs up, unprepared for the exotic woman whose sweet exterior masks enticing sexuality.
Sensory deprivation and the natural freedom of anonymity launch unexpected sexual desires. Madame Eve’s only request–Enjoy the sweetness of life and let the chips fall where they may–leaves this couple eager for an eye-opening experience that breaks all the rules.
