Crushed by heartache and desperate for an escape, he makes a life-changing choice.

When Chandler Peynard staggered into Sabrina Benjamin’s life, he was desperate for an escape route. Battling feelings of isolation, he erects barriers around his heart, often times leaving a trail of broken dreams behind him.
Sabrina’s happily-ever-after was ripped away months ago, but she hadn’t given up on finding love. Still, she was caught off guard by her feelings for Chandler, a man who could hardly be described as a model man of God. As an unexpected bond develops between them, she wants more – A lot more than Chandler is prepared to give, because falling in love and putting down roots are not a part of his plan.

Touched by Sabrina’s kindness and faith, Chandler makes a life-changing choice. However, complication is inevitable when the past he’d long thought was buried, pushes him to confront matters he would have given anything to forget. As he struggles to release himself from his past and embrace the future, he offers Sabrina a place in his heart, but she demands all of it.

 

In a season that brought so many changes, Chandler longs for peace in his soul and yearns for love. Will he trust God with all of his heart to overcome his past? Will he be able to testify that God’s grace wins every time? Will he find the strength to take a chance at life and love with Sabrina?

Tonight on the Write Stuff — Romance Slam Jam in Detroit with Elaine Overton

Write StuffAnyone who had listened to this show long enough know that I am a lover of romance. I used to read a lot of secular romances and now I have gravitated toward edgy Christian romance. It’s not a surprise that romance is one of the biggest, if not the biggest genres to sell year after year.  With that in mind, I wanted to take the time to talk about the Romance Slam Jam that is coming to Detroit from April 28-April 30th

The Romance Slam Jam is an opportunity for African American romance authors of various genres to meet and greet new and old fans, participate in workshops, and celebrate the stories that describe and display Black and multicultural romance stories.

With me to talk about the Romance Slam Jam is coordinator Elaine Overton as she gives more detail about what the RSJ is, it’s history, past events and more.

Write Stuff Author Spotlight — Hearts Undone by Allyson Carter — EXCERPT

ABOUT THE BOOK

After a bitter divorce, Shelby Johnson is looking to rebuild a life for herself and her daughter, Hannah, while avoiding the thing she mistrusts most: men. Her resolve is tested, however, when her brother’s best friend, Mark, moves in across the street and her long-buried feelings for him rise to the surface. Can she open up her heart again? When someone threatens her life, she realizes that her heart isn’t the only thing on the line. She turns to the only man she feels she can trust.

Mark Daniels returns to his hometown to solve a crime committed in the military. When he gets caught up in Shelby’s troubles, he knows she needs someone to protect her, but can he be that man? Being around her again is forcing him to face the way he feels—something he’d rather not do. When his past comes to haunt him, he vows to protect Shelby and her daughter until his last breath.

Through God’s love, Shelby and Hannah find their way into Mark’s heart. Will there be room for God too?

 

EXCERPT

“The house is all clear.” He took a step closer to her, pressing a hand against the wall.

“Good.”
Mark tucked a strand of hair behind her ear. She looked up into his gaze. Beautiful. Her eyes held fear and so many questions. He knew from what she’d said, and from what her brother and his mom had relayed to him, that she didn’t trust men anymore. She’d locked her heart away. Yet he wanted her to open up to him, to trust him. For a moment, Lisa’s face came to his mind. His fiancée had trusted him and look where it got her.  Dead.

No! he shouted at the nasty voice inside his head. I will protect Shelby. I won’t let anything happen to her.
Walk away, Daniels. Walk away and stay away.
The light from overhead reflected in her eyes and he could feel himself drowning. I can’t.

Mark pulled her into his arms, to cover her mouth with his. Sweet, sweet heaven. She tasted like vanilla pudding. Her lips were soft like flower petals. He groaned from the onslaught of sensation. His arms tightened and he drew her closer against his body. After all these years, she was in his arms and he had no intention of letting her go. Back in high school, he let her slip through his fingers—not this time. He wouldn’t move out of the way. Mark wanted to be in her life, in Hannah’s life. They’d woven their way into his heart.
She fit perfectly in his arms, as if she’d been made just for him.

Maybe she had been.

Shelby’s hands groped at his shirt and he felt her tremble. Pastor had talked about how every man had a helpmeet made just for him. He didn’t know if it was true, but in this moment it felt like it. There had to be a way to show her that not all men were the same. Game on. He’d show her no matter how long it took.

Their tongues did a slow, sensual dance. His thumb caressed the back of her neck, making her melt against him. Electric heat, as hot as the Carolina summer, flowed between them.

Finally, when the hunger for her had been slightly abated, he lifted his head. He grinned. She still had her head tilted up, mouth parted, and eyes closed. He used his teeth to tug at her full bottom lip.

“Mark?” Her voice came out on a soft breath.
“Yeah, baby?”

Did he just call her “baby”? He’d never called anyone that before. Lisa didn’t believe in silly endearments or nicknames. With Shelby, this all seemed like a natural thing. He heard the ragged catch in her breath at the name. He also saw the fear and wariness return and take over the soft feminine pleasure of the moment. Mark let her pull back from him.

“I…um…need a drink.”

“Shelby, you know it’s okay to trust me, right?”

The oldest of the Danjuma brothers, Rasheed was a self-made man. He’d learned at an early age that love and commitment brought with it complications he didn’t want to deal with. His single-minded focus had paid off. He was able to step into the shoes of his absentee father by taking care of his mother and twin brothers. But just when he thought he could stop carrying the weight of his family on his shoulders, he gets a call that could change the trajectory of Rasheed’s life.

Ibiso Jaja, a professional caterer, had gambled on the love of a man and lost. Through the redeeming love of God, she had picked herself up and was now living her dream as the owner of Bisso Bites, a bistro in the heart of Abuja. However circumstances conspire to threaten the bistro and bring her face to face with the type of man she has vowed to avoid. The attraction is instant.

Once again, Rasheed is forced to do something he has done all his life – put the needs of his family ahead of his own. This time however, he crosses path with the sassy, independent, Jesus-loving caterer who is bent on making him see the power of forgiveness and God’s love. Just when Rasheed lets his guard down, a deadly sabotage causes old demons to rise. Will Rasheed continue to pursue power and success or surrender to the light of God’s love?
