The author of Essence® bestseller A Lova' Like No Otha' returns with a thrilling story of faith, intrigue, and self-discovery.
Secret Service Agent Christian Ware's no-strings-attached affair with her boss is no longer working for her. And being tied to a desk after an on-the-job shooting isn't sitting well with her either. A working class kid from inner city Washington D.C., Christian didn't grow up with much. But as an adult, Christian left her drug-plagued neighborhood behind, and went after all the accoutrements of a good life. Still, living a life most envy, she's not happy. It's finally a pregnancy scare that forces Christian to look beyond the material to the spiritual and make some changes in her life, starting with a new assignment--protecting Steven Stokes, a well-known and influential Black minister who's a Democratic presidential candidate.
After deciding to end her self-destructive behavior, Christian lands in Atlanta, where the Stokes's campaign is based, feeling like a new woman. She's decided to put recent mistakes behind her and most importantly, establish a relationship with God. When the Stokes's family becomes more than just an assignment, Christian begins falling for the Reverend's sexy son, forcing her to make choices she didn't expect. Christian's never felt so much in need of prayer yet wonders if after so many years of doing the wrong thing, her turnabout may be too late.
