BLOG TOUR: Tender to the Touch w/Nicole Rouse

Book Excerpt
Cynthia Clark
Jasmine had forgotten how sensitive Cynthia could be when it came to certain matters. When they were pledging, Cynthia bugged the others with her strong convictions and desire to please the big sisters.

No one understood why Cynthia had been chosen to be a part of the organization, but after spending several hours with the same people for seven weeks, you grew to love them as family whether you cared for them or not. It was difficult learning to love Cynthia in the beginning, but as time passed, the girls discovered that Cynthia had a heart of gold. She was a tough judge, but she would give you her last dime if you needed it.

About the Book
For the past eleven years, Reverend J. Amanda King served as an anointed and powerful leader for the women’s ministry of Faith Tabernacle Church. Though thousands of women had been blessed by her leadership, J. Amanda was most fond of the ministry she built with five of her sorority sisters. To them she was more than a spiritual leader and counselor. She was their sister and true friend.

The bond of the sisterhood is tested when J. Amanda’s old flame, “Hunky” Crawford,
resurfaces and pleasant memories of their life together seem more appealing than the one she shares with her husband, David. In time, J. Amanda remembers why she ultimately chose David over Hunky, but is she too late? Feeling rejected for a second time, Hunky exposes secrets that threaten to destroy J. Amanda’s relationship with her husband and line sisters forever and lead to a startling death.
Will J. Amanda salvage her relationships and get her life back on track? Or, will she give up on God and accept the consequences for turning her back on her faith?
