Compelling and Clean: Christian Romance
I am not generally a romance reader, but I am glad I found this Christian romance series by Pat Simmons. As a pro-life mother of six, I was hooked from the very beginning--a look into Cheney's past. I had to know what happened next!
The characters were rich with personality and had real problems to solve. There were plenty of secrets and I kept turning pages to see when the characters would figure things out. Cheney's neighbor lady was especially interesting.
Contemporary issues are confronted by the protagonists: post-abortion trauma, premarital sex, and the need for loving foster homes for traumatized children. Temptation, forgiveness, and restoration are themes throughout.
I recommend this series to church libraries and home libraries alike. Diversify your collection with some excellent African-American romance with a Christian perspective.
As of today, Guilty of Love is free on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
