Book Description

When her husband leaves her with nothing, Phoebe Green vows to never give another man any part of her heart or her body without getting something in return.

Jacoby Knight just wants to find a woman, who wants to join themselves with his body and not his massive bank account. These two strangers meet and find they can appease each other needs, yet one night won't do when passion this hot meets.

Can one night of pleasure lead to a lifetime of love?

Readers agree, Phoebe and Jacoby's story will leave you breathless.

Characters from this book also appear in other books by this author: Dreams of Reality & The Other Side of Love. (There are some Hearts & Bellinis.)

3.0 out of 5 stars Could have been better September 8, 2011
By Mika
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Another story with a great premise. I just thought that the characters kind of lacked character, the men weren't alpha males, what kind of man upon first meeting a woman immediately offers money for sex??? He didn't have enough confidence to just talk to her, take her out and see where it leads? Granted for her it came at the perfect time. The men in the book seemed very immature, from their conversations with each other to the middle school back stabbing, in essence they were all lame and corny as hell. I loved the storyline in itself, but the characters turned me off, I found nothing sexy or engaging about them, it was like they lacked self confidence or something. This would have been a great read had the male characters especially, had been stronger.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Story, Poor Editing March 26, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Although I have never read work by Sylvia Hubbard, I must say that I was impressed with "Deceptive Nights." I found it to be a great story and would definitely read it again. However:

1. I found it difficult to believe that the main character would accept such a proposal from a man she had never met before. Regardless of the fact that she was lonely and desperately needed the money. Even though this was hard to believe, it still made for a good plot.

2. The work was riddled with grammatical, spelling etc., errors. At times I couldn't help laughing aloud at how poor the editing was.

I must admit that I read this book pretty quickly. It was a good read. The chemistry between Phoebe and Jacoby was awesome, and I loved the sex scenes that were wrote. I would definately reccommend this book to others...

1.0 out of 5 stars DONE April 20, 2014
By Mrs.Vee
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Her books are always all over the place and never any real love with the main characters. Her sex scenes always start off hot and heavy but end flat. And let's not talk about the grammar errors. I'm DONE with her. I'm not spending another dime on this arthur.

This is another one of my fav books by Sylvia (yes I feel like we are on first name basis, lol). Ms. Hubbard has a unique way of captivating her audiance and make you read until you are at the last page. I love this book because this single mother works hard and tries her best to take care of her children and her mother.

1.0 out of 5 stars Hmmm.... July 8, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I really wanted to like this book; but the characters were so asinine. This story could have gone in so many pleasant directions but it left me shaking my head in disappointment for having to finish a book I had started (and paid).

I really enjoyed this book. It really shows how desperation can make you do the unthinkable, and how love can turn you into a stubborn, goof ball. Easy to read and well written

This writer consistently writes good books, and this book was no an exception. But it irritated me with how stubborn the female lead was.

More About the Author

Detroit native, Sylvia Hubbard, a single mother of three, has worked tirelessly to promote and encourage emerging writers in Michigan. She independently published her first romance novel in 2000 and has continued to write in that genre, sometimes venturing into other subgenres. Always urban and contemporary styled, her writing is enjoyed all over the world. She has published 6 paperbacks and over 30 e-books.

The same year she published, Ms Hubbard also created Motown Writers Network to fill the lack of education and networking for Michigan authors online and offline. By 2004, she was frustrated that all the literary conferences had moved too far away from the city and co-created The Essence of Motown Literary Jam Conference held only in the City of Detroit annually.

In addition to romance writing, Hubbard has been featured at various conferences and workshops all over the United States and Canada, where she has taught authors how to sell their books on the Internet. She also published Internet Marketing for Writers & Businesses as a resource for those unable to attend her workshops. In the upcoming year, she will be featured in several anthologies and plans to publish additional e-books.

"I'm no superwoman," she states with a smile that seems infinite on her lips. "I'm just being an asset in the world instead of a liability."

Considered an addicted blogger by, nominated and recognized for her literary work in the Metro Detroit area, referred to as "A Literary Diva" by Detroit City Council and donned "Cliffhanger Queen" by her readers, she finds solace in speaking and educating on a variety of topics.

Her subjects range from Creative Intimacy, Single Parenting, Blogging, E-Books, Publishing (all aspects i.e.: writing, publishing, marketing & promoting online & offline), and personal triumphs with inspiration mixed in.

Never a disappointment, Sylvia Hubbard, has spoken in front of thousands all over the United States and Canada. Check out her website at
