“Something Borrowed. Something Blue. He Chose Me. But WE Chose You.”

Tiffany, “Strawberry” Parks has it all. The perfect house. The perfect career. The only thing that she is missing is the perfect husband. She failed at love her first time around, but she vowed that her next marriage would be her last.
But who said that she would even have a choice in the matter?

Love finally comes her way, and Strawberry is in love like never before. But something isn’t right. It seems as though the closer and closer she gets to happily-ever after, the more someone seems to be trying to get her attention.
Does someone know her secret?

Strawberry learns the hard way that sometimes love is patient. And sometimes love decides to be kind. But sometimes love is just plain ole’ stupid and other times it’s blind.
But the love that Strawberry feels is real; but can her new husband say the same? Or is there already someone that he loves more….that also has his last name?

Just because it can’t be seen, doesn’t mean it can’t be heard. Have you ever seen what happens, when you fail to keep your word?
To love and honor or to deceive and betray?
When vows and promises are broken, there is always a deadly price to pay.

kimberlaA Sinful Calling (A Reverend Curtis Black Novel) Kindle Edition

Dillon hadn’t been called by anyone. He’d called himself and he wasn’t ashamed of it. But no good can come from . . .

A SINFUL CALLING

Two years ago, to everyone’s surprise, Dillon Whitfield Black, the secret son of Reverend Curtis Black, boldly moved back home, married a woman named Raven, decided he was going to become a minister, and then founded a church right in the center of his living room. Today he’s pastor of a 1,000-plus-member congregation, and new members are joining weekly. Sadly, behind closed doors, Dillon is far from being a saint. Dillon has become more like the man his father was thirty years ago-consumed with money, power, and lots of women. His family may have let bygones be bygones, but they continue to keep their distance.

Not Alicia, though. This daughter of Curtis Black joins Dillon’s congregation, leaving her father’s church behind. The family has forgiven Alicia for marrying Levi Cunningham, the former drug dealer she had an affair with, but once Alicia realizes they will never fully accept Levi, she decides to see her family less and less. She and Levi are truly happy, however, guilt from her betrayal of Phillip and its aftermath casts a shadow over their wedded bliss.
But when Raven decides she wants a higher position in the church and Alicia hides a devastating secret, the entire family is affected in ways they don’t see coming. In the end, no one will be able to trust anyone . . . and for very good reason.
