An answered prayer. An unforeseen betrayal. A family healed by grace.

Amara and Ejike Dike had been married for six glorious years. Amara was convinced Ejike, was the perfect gift from God. Loving, charming and very easy on the eyes. They had a beautiful life. Well, not so beautiful. Amara’s inability to bear children made her feel like a less than the perfect mate for her husband.

Then after many years, God lifted her faith and had finally heard her cry. The Dikes couldn’t be happier.

A surprise visit from Chinelo, Amara’s long lost cousin, turns Amara’s world upside down and threatens to turn her once-perfect existence into ashes.

Ejike loved his wife with a passion. They shared a burning desire and faith in God that burned deep. However Chinelo’s appearance would open a Pandora’s Box that had purposely been kept shut.

Faced with the loss of all she holds dear, Amara finds herself at crossroads. Would she lean on God’s sustaining grace to let go and travel the rocky path to forgiveness? Or would she throw everything to the wind and walk away?

After all, he needed an ugly wife to help him escape from his sordid past. Celeste Martin made a deal with Solomon. She’d be his ugly wife. All she wanted in return was his name. She was in love with her sister’s fiancé and he would be the only man she’d ever love. Solomon had no idea that he’d find his wife fascinating. Celeste didn’t know that one taste from her husband’s lips would have her wanting more. Yet many strange women were between them. Could Solomon ever escape from his past? Could Celeste ever love her husband?

About The Author 

Parker J. Cole is a writer and radio show host who spends most of her time reading, knitting, writing, cooking, and concocting new ideas for stories. Her first novel, Dark Cherub, won Best of Spring Reading 2013 from eMediaCampaigns. She lives in Michigan with her husband and their beloved dog, Sarah.

Sneak Peak

MR. AND MRS. SOLOMON GREENE

The thought of kissing her husband was repugnant. The idea had the attraction of eating an apple with a worm in it. The longer Celeste Greene thought about it, the more distasteful it became.

“I hope you don’t intend for me to actually kiss this man, Reverend,” Celeste bit out in a carefully controlled voice.

The minister was a short black man whose gray hair had receded until his head looked like a polished teak wood surface.  Dark rimmed bifocals rested on his nose and gray bushy eyebrows lifted in surprise.

“Excuse me, Mrs. Grane?” His voice was deep and rumbled like gravel shifting at the bottom of a fish tank.

“I refuse to kiss this man.”

The minister closed the Bible in his hand and pressed it against his Santa Claus belly. He cleared his throat.

“Mrs. Grane, I have married couples for a good many years. I can honestly say I’ve never heard a wife speak so about her husband. Although, the decision is yours, may one ask why you choose not to kiss your husband?”

“Because I don’t know him.”

Celeste could see the minister’s confusion as he glanced over at the tall silent man by her side. She looked at him too but only saw his profile. Her new husband reeked of unwashed body odor and alcohol, although his clothes didn’t display any hint of those noxious smells. In fact, his clothes were perfectly tailored to him, the dark blue suit with its sharp cut and the pastel colored green shirt under it gave her husband a handsome appearance.

Too bad the clothes could not do anything about his stench.

Celeste had no idea her husband had spoken until she realized his mouth moved. He still chose not to look at her but directed his statement to the minster.

“The name is Greene.”

“Greene?”

“Yes, my wife’s new name is Mrs. Solomon Greene. With an ‘e’.”

“Indeed? Well, I do apologize for the mistake.”

Celeste folded her arms and turned fully toward her husband.

“Solomon, are you ready to sign the papers so we can get back to the hotel room?”

“Yes, Celeste. Let’s get this over with.”

A scant fifteen minutes later and Celeste felt the sun warm her face as she stepped out of the small church. Of course the June sun blazed brightly in the sky on this, the most unexpected day of her life. The snow shrouded Rocky Mountains in the Denver skyline only added to the physical perfection of the day. Why couldn’t it be rainy and gloomy? Why couldn’t lightning and thunder shake the ground to mirror the feelings that swarmed inside of her? Why should the sky be the bluest she’d ever seen it and the sound of the birds that twittered from tree to tree create a song to accompany her discomfiture?

“I appreciate that you married me, Celeste Greene,” her husband said from somewhere behind her.

She turned, her arms still folded. “It’s the least I could do.”

Gratitude welled inside Solomon’s heart as he once again realized his wife had none of the attributes he found sexy in a woman. He had hoped the woman he married would have the beauty of a gargoyle but a plain face would do just as well.

He studied his new wife. The top of her head reached his shoulder. She held her body stiff and her face remained devoid of expression. It emphasized her unattractiveness.  If she never smiled at all, it would be wonderful.

She wore a peculiar outfit—a blue skirt that brushed the tops of her shoes, a blouse buttoned to her neck with long sleeves buttoned at her wrist and her hands were encased in plain white gloves. It had an old fashioned look to it, like something from the pioneer days. It obscured her figure and Solomon breathed a sigh of relief. His belief in God had been restored.

The Lord had sent an unattractive woman to be his wife. His eyes began to water and he blinked furiously. He could hardly break down and cry a bucket of tears in joy right now.

“I’ve called my driver,” he told her as a metallic glint caught his peripheral vision and he whirled his head to see a sleek black limousine Hummer turn the corner and stop in front of them.

Celeste didn’t respond.  Her silence made him want to click his heels. A woman who didn’t talk incessantly had to be a godsend. Perfect!

Moments later, he sat by her side as the vehicle moved. The scenery passed and Solomon appreciated it as the light of the sun beamed on the ground.  The leaves rustled as a gentle breeze wafted through them and the sight of birds as they flew by lifted his spirits. It was a lovely June day and he’d found his wife.

About The Author

Annie Brown is the mother of four adult children, five grandchildren, and one great grandchild. She is a licensed minister and social worker. As a social worker, Annie works the terminally ill, providing emotional support at the most critical time in an individual’s life. It is Annie’s desire that Christians work through their pervasive issues before the end of life, so that the transition between death and eternity can be smooth, and not cluttered with unresolved conflicts.

Book Excerpt

A Remedy to Get to the Root of the Problem

WHAT IS NEEDED is that the people of God “must” clean out their secret compartments and confess that they need the Lord to deliver them. Confession is made unto salvation (deliverance). If we confess our faults, the Lord is faithful in forgiving us.

You may ask, “Why do I have to confess if I was not responsible for what happened to me?” The issue then becomes whether you have forgiven the person that caused me this harm. If there is no forgiveness, then you become a victim twice: a victim of circumstance, and a victim of bondage. This can be in some ways more dangerous than cancer. This will always be eating away at you. With cancer, at least you know what is going on in your body. Being a victim of circumstance and having an unforgiving heart bring torment. This torment becomes a part of you in such a way that it eats through your mind, destroys your inner peace, and puts your soul in jeopardy because it becomes a heart matter of sin.

Treasures in the Darkness Review

Treasures in the Darkness

By: Bishop Larry Brandon

20130911-120029.jpg

 

I really enjoyed viewing this book. I have a family member who has endured the same thing that Bishop Brandon has experienced. I see the pain in this individual and their grieving process has been overwhelming for me. I don’t know if I could’ve endured this without the help of the Lord Jesus. In this book, I know that it is very important to keep the Faith in the Lord JESUS and yield to what he is instructing you to do. You must Believe God and come to him during your time of testing of your Faith. When you are beginning to question God or doubt him it is recommended to call upon him and Obey him and allow him to order your step, to reshape your life and experience the Lord leading you unto your destiny.

 

There are more individuals that are in the church that talk the talk, but there is no Faith filled action coupled with the faith. You say that many individuals hear it, but they don’t believe what they are reading or hearing. We must develop a relationship with God by worshipping him and that becomes ministry to God and produces a love for his people. Many people will put up their guards and take their masks faster than any minister likes to admit. Do what you can to change the atmosphere in our churches.

 

We find that personal values and issues can keep you from becoming transparent. If an individual does not open up in front of their brothers and sisters in Christ, this will cause them to miss a divine opportunity of healing and deliverances. God has made this available but some individuals can not relieve this grip that is upon their lives causing them to miss one of the greatest blessings ever imaginable for them. I have found that many people were brought up in families in which they were told “What goes on in this house, stays in this house.” Even though they were told this they still bring this kind of mentality into the church.

 

This statement can cause individuals to put up walls of protection up and that can keep anyone from getting too close to them. God’s way of doing things is not to keep everything private. You must be willing to come out of the darkness (ignorance) so that God can heal you. When you experience this type of challenge this should enable you to share this whether it is financial, physical, emotional, or spiritual with the Lord or anyone else or you’ll self-destruct. Your struggles can follow you to the household of Faith/House of GOD. When you are not allowed to deal with your struggles/problems then this will allow the anointing to lift from you.

 

Whatever you are going through we are suggested not to hold on to this pain, but we are instructed to release it. This decision will influence others. We must identify the source of our problems/issues to experience healing but if we hold onto them the result will become private pain and this will hinder your progress. When you experience a loss only GOD can reveal your true progress in life and your ministry will be birthed to do a great work for the kingdom of GOD. This brings “TRUE RELATIONSHIP” with the Lord. Remember whatever situation that you are in and there seems like there is no end you will find that GOD will breathe LIFE into your situation through your pain. When GOD breathes “LIFE” this scripture comes to my mind, “Is There Anything too Hard for the Lord”?

The Eleventh Commandment Review

The Eleventh Commandment Review

When I started to read this book I did not know that this was the 8th installment of The Hallelujah Love Series. I must say, I was not lost or confused. The Eleventh Commandment is an excellent read and I truly enjoyed this book. In Eleventh Commandment you will meet Frieda, Hope and Stacy. The storyline is excellent and if you didn’t know any better, you wouldn’t realize it’s a Christian book. Lutishia brings you unfaithfulness, abuse, courage, love and so much more into this book.  IT was amazing to see Lutishia pull so many characters and plots together.  Each couple are faced with their own obstacles as well as individuals.  

The-Eleventh-Commandment

 

Lutishia Lovely is an actor and  former radio personality who resides near San Diego, CA. She is available for interviews, speaking engagements, and live, Skype or teleconferenced book club meetings. She loves to meet readers and thrives on sharing her
personal story, one that will hopefully inspire others to live their dreams. Lutishia grew up in a small Kansas town, and often had to rely on her own creativity and imagination for entertainment. Her childhood habit of long conversations with imaginary friends has evolved into a satisfying, award-winning literary career which includes six books in the Hallelujah Love series and four romance novels by her alter-ego, Zuri Day. Since childhood, she’s also had a deep-seated belief that dreams can come true. This is what gave her the courage to take her self-published novel to a conference attended by 25,000 people, give one book to one editor, and get a book deal. She says that magic can happen when we truly believe…

Tender to the Touch Review

tender to the touch

 

 

Tender to the Touch

 

By: Nicole Rouse

 

Tender to the Touch is an excellent Christian read. It deals with infidelity, lies, betrayal and so much more. In Tender to the Touch Nicole takes you on a journey of six friends. Each friend has their own trials in tribulations, but in the end some trials are greater than others.

 

Nicole S. Rouse brings you a story about true friendship, abuse and how one’s lies can catch up with you. Through it all the ladies has a test of faith, but with God on their side they are determined not to let the devil win. This is a great read and Nicole does excellent with the story line. I really enjoyed reading this novel.

 

I believe in some way, this novel would be a great inspiration to a lot of women out there.

 

Here’s a brief prologue of the novel:

 

Prologue
The blood covering J. Amanda’s hands did not belong to her. Neither did the blotches of blood on her casual brown khakis. In total shock, she dragged her body across the recently remodeled kitchen floor, and as she leaned against the refrigerator, she stared at the faint smears of blood that had trailed her. Numb to her surroundings, J. Amanda wiped her trembling hands on her pants, then subconsciously reached for the gold cross hanging from her neck. Oh my God! What just happened? she asked herself. 

                 As she looked around the kitchen, she covered her mouth with her red-stained hands. The smell of death surrounded her. How could she be so foolish? In her quest to find happiness, she had damaged the lives of her loved ones and close friends. What had happened in the kitchen was all her fault, and no one could convince her otherwise. “This can’t be real,” she mumbled in disbelief. “God wouldn’t do this to me. I’m only thirty-nine years old.” 

                 Feeling like a failure, J. Amanda crawled back to the center of the room in tears and stopped by the gun that had fired the fatal shot. It was only a matter of time before the police arrived, and she knew that once they assessed the scene of the crime, she would be headed to jail. 

J. Amanda had disappointed everyone—her family, her friends, her ministry, and, most of all, God. 

                  Reaching for the gun lying by her leg, she wiped the tears from her cheeks with each arm. This is the price I have to pay for taking my eyes off of you, she sobbed. Then, slowly, J. Amanda closed her eyes as she lifted the gun to her temple, and in a childlike voice she moaned, “I’m so sorry, God.”
