A broken man, a woman on the run, a love that won’t be denied.

Single—and very content—real estate developer Aaron Blackman is determined not to become involved in another relationship. He’s experienced enough drama to last a lifetime. The only thing garnering his attention now is his growing business. And he plans to keep it that way. Then Simone Herron waltzes into his life, beautiful and confident. Fighting to keep his promise to himself—to remain single—he soon discovers that when it comes to love, some promises must be broken.

After losing her fiancé in an untimely death, Simone Herron relocates. She desperately needs to put the past behind her and start a new chapter in her life. While love is the farthest thing from her mind, she experiences an attraction to the handsome Aaron Blackman that frightens her. She’s built a wall around her heart, but can she find the strength and courage she needs to welcome love again? To do so, she must conquer her fears and allow God to put all of her broken pieces back together.

About the book

Vengeful Vows book cover

Daffodil Simmons knows how the world works. She’s the spider, all the world is a fly. She has spent her life spinning webs, using people for personal gain. And now, she’s about to spin her biggest one yet – for vengeance. She’ll do whatever it takes to get revenge on the two men who abandoned her: her father, and her former lover. When she blackmails her half-sister Leah Westwood’s ex-lover to do her bidding, she tightens her fist around his will and brings him into submission to her plans.

Vincent Miller hates that Daffodil has a noose around his neck, forcing him to do whatever she wants. But he’ll do anything to steal Leah back from Jacob Westwood, the man who destroyed his life, even if it means making a deal with a blue-eyed spider. Yet as Daffodil spins her web, he finds himself entrapped by a silk of a very different kind and intrigued by a woman who only sees him as expendable prey

Everything is going according to plan until another spider, a ghost from Daffodil’s past, begins to interfere with their web. It’s a battle of wits against a powerful foe. When it comes time to make the ultimate choice, can Daffodil lay aside everything she’s ever known… for something even greater? Can Vincent set aside his need for revenge to go after what’s in front of him?

Guest Blog: Marriage is Grace by Shundria Riddick

Hi, I’ll get back to doing my Tuesday Teasers soon but I am honored today to introduce a new book by one of the Christian authors I admire, Michelle Stimpson. The book was co-authored by Shundria Riddick.

The book releases today and is called Married for Five Minutes. Today, I present a guest post by Shundria Riddick highlighting the book and tell you about a Facebook party we are having later this evening to celebrate. I’m part of the panel this evening talking about relationships of all kinds and I’m so thrilled.

Marriage Grace
Twenty Years! I cannot believe I’ve been married for that long. It’s been a winding wonderful road. I’ve been asked, “If someone could have said one thing to you before you got married, what would it have been?”
My answer, “Buckle up!”
It’s been a ride. Highs have been high and lows have been low. I look at our young faces in our wedding picture and think “clueless!” Ha! Please don’t misunderstand; we loved each other then and we still do now. But neither of us knew the depth of love and sacrifice we were about to embark upon. We didn’t know what was about to be asked of ourselves or each other. We didn’t know.
I am so glad that the Lord kept us and still holds us. If it were left up to us, we would have driven our marriage into the ground. We had so many personal obstacles, unreasonable expectations, and worldly views of marriage. By the absolute Grace of God we are still together and have the privilege of encouraging others in their marriages! To God be the Glory…
We’ve shared so many incredible years. My husband can still walk into a room and take my breath away! I don’t have the time to even begin explaining the joys we have experienced as husband and wife and parents to our three wonderful children.
And yet, we have required a great amount of Grace. In spite of everything we’ve been through, Grace kept us. It loved us. It carried us. When we wanted to walk away, it reminded us of the covenant we made with God and each other. When we laughed through great times, Grace strengthened us. Grace is for us.
If I could say anything to encourage someone in marriage it would be:
• It’s not always fair, don’t expect it.
• You may give more one season and your spouse may give more the next.
• Only Christ can complete you, not your spouse.
• Love is sacrifice, not a feeling. I Corinthians 13 is your “to do” list.
• Walking in your role is important. Know it.
• God’s Word is the authority not your feelings.
• Arguing is healthy.
• Making up is even better.
• Laugh together.
• Hold hands.
• Forgive like you want to be forgiven.
• Accept that your spouse’s weaknesses are different than yours
• ALWAYS PRAY TOGETHER
• Marriage is not meant to make you happy, but is meant to make you holy.
• Love your kids, but never put them before your marriage (Your marriage is their foundation.)
• Live your life understanding that a Godly healthy marriage and a healthy family are the enemy’s biggest threats. YOU ARE KINGDOM BUILDING! He wants your marriage and your children broken. He is your enemy not each other.
• Marriage still works!
I’m looking forward to many more years with my husband! We often say that no one else is crazy enough to be with us. So we might as well be together!
