Latest Release


HEARTS UNITED (Book 3, Divine Legacy Series):


With the loss of a prominent A.N.G.E.L. fresh in their minds, the team focuses on trying to get to Angel without losing anyone else. Angel is doing her best to fight Cassius, Calliope, and Korax in complete isolation, with only God’s strength to pull her through. Already tortured, how much more can she endure?

In the meantime, Jerrod’s battles with the ghosts of his past become overwhelming. Will he be able to see past them to find his future?

As the A.N.G.E.L.s converge for yet another memorial service, Jesse struggles with feelings of anger and resentment. Knowing Angel’s choice triggered this loss; he fights within to reconcile his feelings.

With emotions at an all-time high, ricocheting all over the place, the team is more divided than ever. Will they be able to focus on God enough to center themselves and carry on their legacy? Will they continue to be divided or will they become Hearts United. (Book 3 of the Divine Legacy Series.)

Proverbs 4:20-23 “My son, pay attention to what I say; turn your ear to my words. Do not let them out of your sight, keep them within your heart; for they are life to those who find them and health to one’s whole body. Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.”

Follow their highs and lows; their successes and failures; and the many things they learn along the way!
