Camy's Hero: Dr. Devon Knightley

This is Devon Knightley, hero from Camy Tang’s latest release, DEADLY INTENT. She twisted my arm—er, asked me to blog for her on Laura’s blog today.

I was watching the TV show Royal Pains the other night and one of the characters mentioned something that is true for most men: We will do something moronic at least once in a relationship with a woman, usually more than once.

(I would be tempted to say that a woman would do something silly at least once in a relationship with a man, too, but the estrogen levels in the room are a bit high at the moment, so I’ll refrain.)

Seriously, my moronic moments in my life number in the dozens. Not the least of which was marrying my ex-wife, Jessica Ortiz. A close second is my reluctance to take a risk again and ask out Naomi Grant after my divorce.

I have no problems taking on the challenge of a difficult surgery—I’m orthopedic surgeon for the Oakland Raiders—but as soon as I realized I was starting to be attracted to Naomi, I backed off. Didn’t even ask her for her phone number.

As you can see, I’ve been King of the Morons once or twice at least.

Luckily, in DEADLY INTENT, I get a chance to see Naomi again. Granted, it’s not the most romantic of circumstances—I show up asking to speak to my ex-wife, Jessica, and then Naomi happens to find her bleeding to death in her own massage room. Doesn’t look good for either of us, to say the least.

But, just because a man has BEEN a moron doesn’t mean he will ALWAYS be a moron.

At least, that’s my hope.

Read DEADLY INTENT to find out how our ill-fated romance ends up!

Thanks for letting me blog today, Laura.



The Grant family’s exclusive Sonoma spa is a place for rest and relaxation—not murder! Then Naomi Grant finds her client Jessica Ortiz bleeding to death in her massage room, and everything falls apart. The salon’s reputation is at stake...and so is Naomi’s freedom when she discovers that she is one of the main suspects! Her only solace is found with the other suspect—Dr. Devon Knightley, the victim’s ex-husband. But Devon is hiding secrets of his own. When they come to light, where can Naomi turn...and whom can she trust?


Camy Tang writes romance with a kick of wasabi. She used to be a biologist, but now she is a staff worker for her church youth group and leads a worship team for Sunday service. She also runs the Story Sensei fiction critique service. On her blog, she gives away Christian novels every week, and she ponders frivolous things like dumb dogs (namely, hers), coffee-geek husbands (no resemblance to her own...), the writing journey, Asiana, and anything else that comes to mind. Visit her website at for a huge website contest going on right now, giving away fourteen boxes of books and 24 copies of her latest release, DEADLY INTENT.
