GOODREADFRIDAY: HOPE & MY FICTION EP.2

Missed this last week. My bad, I’ve been really on the go but we are back.

This week in hope & my fiction, I want to focus on the Rices. In The Christmas Ultimatum, Olanma & Abayomi were brought together and fell in love fast. Theirs was a story of a whirlwind romance in spite of a rocky beginning. They later went on to have a fairytale wedding. One you would expect rich young people with wealthy backgrounds to have. However, we met them again five years later in The Final Ultimatum and they are not so happy. Apparently the  romance and big weddings are all they are good at. The marriage,not so much.

What happens when the love they shared goes oh so bad? Olanma was convinced love was the devil. Will Abayomi be able to prove her wrong? After a whirlwind romance and a fairytale wedding, the Rices are having a hard time having a happy marriage.
On a trip to SA to give it one last go, they are met with dangerous situation that has the whole family bonded in prayer for safety.
Love, betrayals, sacrifice and redemption all wrapped into a delightful tale. The Rices have all but given up on a favorable end for their marriage until they surrendered to the Author and Finisher of their faith.

You can find The Ultimatum Series on all major online bookstores and in print.

Pick up both books and take a trip to South Africa for less than $7 🙂

Hot Off The Press~The Confession By Pat Simmons

ConfessionTheJamiesonLegacy

Allow me to roll out the red carpet for my shero and mentor Pat Simmons. I admire they way she weaves romance around the infallible unchanging Word of God. Don;t believe me just try one of her books. The proof is in the pudding, today I’m bringing you her latest baby~ The Confession

Title of Book: THE CONFESSION
Author: Pat Simmons
Genre: Christian fiction romance
Back cover blurb: Fashion consultant Sandra Nicholson catches the eye of pretty boy Raimond Mayfield whose priorities have evolved over the years to include God first, followed by his business and restoring broken relationships. As the pair get to know each other, they learn they have a lot in common–if only their adult children don’t stand in the way of their happiness and their past secrets don’t come back to haunt them.
This story brings back several beloved characters, including Grandma BB, who is up to usual her shenanigans.

CHAPTER ONE

“Excuse me.” The richness of a baritone voice interrupted Sandra Nicholson’s next sip of java as she stared out the window at the Nook Café. Glancing over her shoulder, Sandra expected to see… Well, she didn’t know what she expected, but the good-looking gentleman with defined features wasn’t it.
The mesmerizing voice matched a captivating man. Wow, she thought to herself as he seemed to study her.
“You are one incredibly beautiful woman,” he stated as he towered over the table she shared with her son, who had minutes earlier excused himself to the men’s room.
The stranger’s timing couldn’t have been more precise. A snarl from her overbearing son, and the man surely would have thought twice about stopping. What was taking Kidd so long, anyway?
Without waiting for her response, the distinguished gentleman swaggered out of Nordstrom’s boutique café and disappeared into the store, leaving a trail of his designer cologne as his calling card. His stride had been as confident as his declaration.
Sandra did her best not to ogle, but she conducted a quick assessment in less than sixty seconds. She guessed him to be about six-one or two and would tower over her five-seven frame. Judging from his wavy thick salt-and-pepper curly hair that complemented his brown skin, the man was in his late forties, early fifties. If good genes ran in his family, he could have been hovering over eighty for all she knew. Yet, his confident stride hinted of a man who was youthful and fit. With jaw-dropping looks, she pegged him as a ladies man in his heyday, or even now. Sandra knew how to call them, because she had been charmed by the top-of-the-line Samuel Jamieson. She dismissed the temptation at the same time Kidd reappeared, talking on his cell phone.
“Eva,” he mouthed.
She nodded as he took his seat, then her mind drifted once again to the striking stranger. It wasn’t like she didn’t receive compliments here and there, but it was the commanding way he said it that made her want to pass out and never regain consciousness if it meant he would be in her dreams. Because he said it, Sandra felt beautiful. Maybe it was the highlights in her hair that her daughter-in-law, Talise, insisted she try or maybe it was the ensemble she had meticulously assembled to wear.
“Okay, babe. Don’t worry. I’m on my way.” Lines etched Kidd’s forehead, which put Sandra on alert. No time for whimsical musing as she leaned forward with concern. “Is everything okay?”
“No.” He gritted his teeth. “The car won’t start and Kennedy has a doctor’s appointment. Sorry, Mom, we have to cut our breakfast date short.” He stood and pulled a twenty out his wallet then kissed her cheek. “Are you going to be all right?”
Sandra smiled. “No apologies needed, son. Go see about my grandbaby. She’s your priority.”
“But you’re right up there at the top of my list too.” Snatching his jacket off the back of his chair, he hurried off.
The monthly breakfast treat was her older son’s idea for some one-on-one time. Even though he was married, he still felt obligated to look after her as if she was an ailing out-of-shape granny in her eighties, not a woman who had yet to experience a hot flash.
In her mid-50s, Sandra had regrets in her life. One, she had yet to marry. Even after she repented of her deeds and accepted the salvation outlined in the Book of Acts, God hadn’t blessed her in that way. Second, the man who fathered her two sons out of wedlock wasn’t worth the heartache he caused her. But the Lord had given her two beautiful granddaughters to spoil—one from each son. And she did without any guilt trips from their scolding.
