About The Book.

Darren is a young, married, Caucasian man, who denies the existence of God. He wakes up one day to a strange reality. He is dead, but he is still conscious. How can that be?

Fortunately for him, he has a guide, Samuel, who prepares him for the moment of reckoning… Darren has to come to terms with the truth that he was wrong about God, life and everything, but he’ll be damned before he can say “God is good”!

Daniel stared at the chaos that was his kitchen.

About The Book.

There’s only one person standing in the way of love: her husband. As Efe files for divorce, will the breakup give her joy or lead to her losing more than she expected?
It’s been almost two years since the night that changed everything for Efe. For as long as she could remember, her childhood crush on Daniel had always made her do silly things. But there was only one thing she regretted; having a baby for him when he clearly didn’t love her.
With constant push and pressures from both their families, they end up in a marriage only one of them wants. She goes away for the mandatory one year National service and meets Amaze who is everything Daniel isn’t to her, and he sweeps her off her feet showing her sweet romance. Armed with the pain of Daniel’s adulterous ways, she makes the firm decision to move on and files for a divorce.
While Efe is away, Daniel has a change of heart from the most unlikely means and decides to get his act together and be the husband he hasn’t been. He gets his acts straight and wants to get his wife back but he may be late as she’s already met with Amanze’s family.
Will Efe be willing to take Daniel back, or will her new love with Amanze be strong enough to make her walk away from him? Can she hope for a new start with her daughter and Amanze or is everything just wishful thinking?

About The Book.

FROM FAKE RELATIONSHIP TO TRUE LOVE

A broken engagement drives Susanna Kelly back to her hometown of Sweetheart, Texas and the arms of its quirky, lovable citizens. But her peaceful return to her roots is shattered when heart-shaped notes with sinister messages start appearing. The support of Daniel Sheppard, Asian American bestselling author and her childhood friend, gives her a much needed ally amidst the turmoil.

Daniel offers to play the role of her boyfriend to discourage the stalker, but Susanna resists. Pretending to be a couple? And with Daniel of all people? Who would buy it?

The note writer’s mind games force her to reconsider. Susanna accepts Daniel’s crazy plan, but her heart acts up whenever she’s near her decoy valentine. Comfortable, uncomplicated Daniel has turned into a full-grown man who makes her senses spin. As she tries to sort out her feelings, the make-believe romance has the opposite effect intended. Harmless notes turn into life-threatening accidents, and Daniel and Susanna must find out who’s behind the chaos before they can decide if their temporary relationship is a heaven-sent gift meant to last forever.

ABOUT THE BOOK.

As a child, Mary Uwanna believed in the power of faith and love, and loved to tell stories of Princes. Everything changes when she loses her parents in one night, and is left to care for her three brothers. In a climate of corruption and immorality, even the Church was not a safe refuge for sixteen year old, Mary. She makes a decision that threatens to steal her destiny, until she meets her Prince.

Ifeanyi Chukwueke is not the Prince Mary had envisioned. He is a bad boy, with a reputation for breaking hearts. But his heart is set on Mary. Faced with her haunting past, he makes a decision to love her regardless… Until his own past comes to threaten their happily ever after – time and again!

The Church Girl is a story about a love that was destined, but tried in every way. Mary and Ifeanyi must learn that in order to live, they must first die to self, as their love and faith is tested through many trials and temptations.

Follow this roller-coaster ride about a love that overcomes all, that will grow your faith, or lead you to the One who holds the keys of Life.
