Fifteen years ago, Zeely Wilkins and Ron Jenkins were students the school district stopped believing in. Lucky for them, their teacher knew something the principal didn't; they were cream of the crop but they just hadn't sprouted the way people expected.
Though they went their separate ways, the past is calling them back to the school and the teacher who wouldn't give up on them. Now they'll have to decide what love really means—and whether they're willing to dance to a new tune to get it. But can they rediscover the songs of deliverance that once brought them together? Or will secrets keep them apart?

Warrick Mayne has spent twelve years blaming Raina St. James for ruining his sister's life. Now the self-made millionaire has the perfect opportunity for payback—knocking down Raina's luxury day spa to build an office complex. But his plan has met a hitch, in the delectable form of Raina herself.
He may be her enemy now, but long ago, Raina had a secret crush on her friend's gorgeous older brother. And time has only enhanced Warrick's appeal. When an innocent business trip to Warrick's out-of-town estate turns unmistakably seductive, they succumb to their electrifying mutual attraction. But it'll take more than one encounter of sensual healing— no matter how blissful—to open Raina's and Warrick's eyes to the passionate, heartbreaking truth.
Malcolm Jamieson and Hallison Dinkins (from Guilty of Love) have the charisma, the chemistry, and the commitment for an everlasting love-until God shatters their foundation when He instructs Hallison to give up the most important person in her life to follow Him. Since obedience is better than sacrifice, Hallison breaks off her engagement with Malcolm.
Malcolm thinks his woman has lost her mind. Not only doesn't he believe in the total spiritual conversion, but he doesn't know any perfect Christians. Case in point, he finds evidence in the hypocritical, gun-toting widow Grandma BB (also from Guilty of Love). She attends the same church as Hallison and professes the same salvation on Sunday, but seeks revenge on Monday.
Malcolm issues Hallison an ultimatum: "If we're meant to be, we'll find our way back to each other. If not, there is a stronger love that awaits us." God has the last word by sending Malcolm a decoy. Someone has to retreat, and God never loses a battle.
There is nothing more devastating than the death of a loved one. And whether it comes suddenly and unexpectedly, or at the end of a long and painful illness, every death is experienced anew, a shocking loss that takes our breath away and leaves us disoriented and lost.
Grief is mysterious, misunderstood, and experienced differently from individual to individual, yet there are certain universal elements. In this compassionate epistolary handbook on grief, a pastor offers comfort and understanding to a man suffering a profound loss, showing grief as a healthy process that God can use to mend broken hearts.
Revised and updated, this twentieth-anniversary edition features prayers and scripture meditation, as well as a new introduction and epilogue. Simple, profound, personal, compassionate ... When You Lose Someone You Love tenderly walks the grief-stricken through sorrow to peace and, eventually, renewed joy.
The Family Tree in the small town of Top Water, Louisiana takes on a different meaning for the Greenson family. For in their front yard is literally a family tree, however, you must understand, that it is not just any old tree, but one that is almost like the biblical Tree of Life and Knowledge. Under that tree many major decisions were made: marriage proposals, birth announcements, heart breaks, and other let downs, and news of a loved one passing away.
Everything was talked about under this tree, even a decision that drastically affected the life of 12-year-old Callie Greenson, better known as Sweetie Pie. Precocious and wise beyond her years, she feels it is her right to know what is going on in the lives of her parents, siblings and friends.

Little does she know that the conversation was about her and a secret involving her parents, and three of their friends! Come along on a diabolical journey in "If the Tree Could Talk (oh, what stories it would tell)" that will test the patience and trust of everyone involved. In this story of lost love, betrayal, manipulation and finally the hope that springs eternal when love and trust, is renewed once again.
