Hot off the Press
Love and Lies by Kimberla Lawson Roby
Truth and lies . . .
At long last, the Reverend Curtis Black appears to be living the straight life. The all-too-human preacher is a bestselling author now, and he and his wife, Charlotte, are raising two adorable children. But the ever-suspicious Charlotte doesn't trust that Curtis has put his womanizing past behind him. While he's on the road promoting his latest book, she knows that there just needs to be one extra-devoted fan in his flock for him to stray.
Secrets and lies . . .
Still, Charlotte is no angel herself, and she's been keeping plenty of secrets from Curtis while he's been away. For one thing, their daughter, Marissa, is behaving bizarrely, reminding Charlotte a bit too much of the man with whom she had an affair five years ago—an affair Curtis won't let her forget.
Then there are the disturbing visits from her so-called brother-in-law, a man once involved with drugs and the law. Curtis has forbidden the family to see him, but the guy simply keeps turning up on Charlotte's doorstep no matter how hard she tries to keep him away.
Charlotte believes with all her heart that things will be better once Curtis comes home.
Love and lies . . .
But Charlotte should be careful what she wishes for. She thinks love is enough to untangle the web of lies she and Curtis have woven for themselves. What she doesn't know is that when her husband finally returns, she'll have some tough decisions to make if she wants to save her soul and salvage her marriage.

Grown And Sexy by Phillip Thomas Duck
In this explosive follow-up to his powerful debut novel, Phillip Thomas Duck tells the tale of an edgy ex-con turned minister who tries to escape his past—and discovers that God truly does work in mysterious ways… LeVar Path went into North Carolina’s Jeremiah Correctional Institution a guilty, angry, dangerous man. Two and a half years later, he’s come out a repentant and born again. And it’s a good thing, because LeVar is about to face all kinds of trials, not to mention temptations. While LeVar is looking for God, a notorious band of murderous brothers is looking for him, eager to avenge a crime they don’t believe he’s quite paid for.
Fleeing to New Jersey, LeVar hears that Fellowship Baptist Church is looking for an associate pastor, and he decides to risk it and apply for the job. The Lord saved his soul in prison, maybe He will shelter his body in the church. And maybe along with His love, LeVar will be blessed with the love of a good woman. For even a man of God is still a man. Faithful yes, but temptation is all around for a man who's grown...and sexy.
Soon enough, LeVar finds himself enjoying the role of pastor, and is strongly attracted to a member of his congregation—a woman who also happens to be his harshest critic. Denied by her, he moves on to another woman that challenges his sexual restraint. But that is just the beginning of a road that will lead LeVar and those whose lives he touches through a tangle of betrayal, long-buried secrets, desires. . .and hopefully redemption.
