Introducing the Sons of Zik
Kurt Achike, the eldest of the Sons of Zik and owner of a nightclub, is part Nigerian and part German. Even though he really believes he wants to get married, he just can’t bring himself to take the final step to the altar.
Tall and dark Leke Achike takes everything seriously, including dating. For now, he’s focused on his bodyguard business and has no time for a wife. Leke also has a secret. One he doesn’t want his family to know about.
American, grey-eyed single father Jon Achike-Scott is Zik’s adopted son. He’s a brilliant cardio-thoracic surgeon but when he’s not working, his motto is: too many women; too little time.
Toke Achike is a father of four, a state commissioner and a happily married man… except for the moments of weakness when he indulges in extramarital affairs.
Secrets, Scandals, Desire is two books in one, Pool Party and An Unexpected Match.
One’s engaged but refuses to set a wedding date. One deals with the fact that his brother’s wife fancies him. One has two women fighting over him. One battles the temptation to cheat on his wife.
The four sons of Igwe Zik Achike are partying at the pool in the family estate.

Leke Achike flew in from Kenya to attend the party and support Kurt but instead ends up mediating in some family drama and conducting a unique job interview.
