Best because, well, that's obvious. Worst because, up to this point, she's made her very comfortable living as a well-known, bestselling author of steamy romance novels that would leave the members of her new church blushing. Now Sarah is trying to reconcile her past with the future she's chosen. She's still under contract with her publisher and on the hook with her enormous fan base for the kind of book she's not sure she can write anymore. She's beginning to think that the church might frown on her tithing on royalties from a "scandalous" book. And the fact that she's falling in love with her pastor doesn't make things any easier.
With a powerful voice, penetrating insight, and plenty of wit,
Bethany Turner explodes onto the scene with a debut that isn’t afraid
to deal with the thorny realities of living the Christian life.
Publishers Weekly Starred Review
“Stacking the story with as many pop culture references as evangelical inside jokes, Turner writes snappy dialogue, realistic and lovable characters, and clean yet smoking-hot romantic scenes. Inspirational romance readers will be clamoring for more.”–Publishers Weekly

The novel is filled with humor, stellar characterization and conflict balanced with faith and love. Readers will definitely want to put this on their ‘to buy’ list.”—RT Book Reviews
