About the Author

She is the mother of two children and enjoys reading, dancing, traveling, and taking long naps.

About the Book
Just when Sullivan, Lawson, Kina, Angel, and Reginell finally think they’ve gotten life figured out, fate steps in and throws them all a curve ball, adding fuel to the drama that seems to follow the ladies wherever they go.

Mt. Zion’s first lady, Sullivan Webb, has left her philandering ways behind her, but lingering
questions surrounding her daughter’s paternity motivate Sullivan to seek out her own absentee father, Pastor Samuel Sullivan. What her search uncovers is years of lies, secrets, and betrayal that threaten to destroy the lives of almost everyone she loves.

Kina Battle’s newfound celebrity status as the winner of a popular weight-loss reality show goes to her head as quickly as she shed her unwanted pounds. Kina is prepared for the fame, endorsement deals, and celebrity appearances that come along with stardom. What she isn’t prepared for is the harsh backlash when her secrets are exposed and the public starts to question whether she is the devout Christian that she’s led everyone to believe she is.

Lawson Kerry Banks could get over her husband’s affair if the evidence wasn’t staring at her through the eyes of his love child. Lawson’s insecurities and inability to accept his child force Garrett to choose between the woman he loves and the child he’s fathered.

Life as the soon-to-be wife of high school football coach Mark Vinson lacks the excitement of Reginell Kerry’s former life. It certainly lacks the financial security that pulling down $1000 a week as an exotic dancer afforded her. When the bills start to pile up, Reginell goes back to doing what she knows best, only this time it may cost her more than she’s willing to pay.

Angel King’s broken heart finds a safe place to mend in the arms of high school classmate Jordan McKay. He respects her decision to abstain from sex until marriage, he loves the Lord, and he adores her. However, Jordan is harboring a dangerous secret that could destroy their relationship and leave Angel brokenhearted once again.

The ladies often fall victim to being led by their hearts instead of their heads. This time, they may have gone too far.

Book Excerpt:

Sullivan Webb
“Every little girl deserves to be her daddy’s princess, even you, Sullivan,” said Charles.  “It breaks my heart that you didn’t have that.”
            Sullivan sighed.  “Vera would be a strong contestant for the Worst Mother Ever title, but I can’t blame her or my dad for the mistakes I’ve made as an adult.  It makes me sick to my stomach when I think about how much I’ve hurt you.”
“I’m strong, Sullivan.  I’m okay.  I went into this marriage with you with my eyes wide open.”
“Yeah, but I know I made you want to close them and pretend this was all some horrible nightmare! You couldn’t have predicted my drinking problems, the affair with Vaughn, or my psychotic mother.”
“We’ve all made our mistakes, Sullivan, myself included.”
“You’re no saint, Charles, but compared to me, you’re seated on the throne next to Jesus!”
He laughed.  “You’re not so bad, my beauty. The drinking, Vaughn and that whole mess are all in the past.”
Sullivan nodded, looking down at her baby, who smiled at the sight of her mother.  Sullivan desperately wanted to believe her husband and embrace the idea that all of her past sins were behind her.  After all, hadn’t the Bible said she was a new creature in Christ and had been forgiven?  She allowed Charity to squeeze her finger.  Though Sullivan returned Charity’s smile, she couldn’t shake the nagging feeling that, instead of being behind her, the living evidence of her sins was staring her in face.
