Reverend Curtis Black Series

Better Late Than Never (Curtis Black #15) (Hardcover)
By Kimberla Lawson Roby 
List Price: $26.00
(Save: $8.32 32%)
 
In this stunning conclusion to the bestselling Reverend Curtis Black series, Curtis's secret past returns in an unwelcome--but ultimately healing--visit. Rev. Curtis Black is no stranger to scandal. Throughout the decades, he has done much in the public eye, both good and evil. But what most people don't realize is that Curtis has been hiding a horrific childhood that has affected him in countless, unspeakable ways. His buried past resurfaces when his estranged sister becomes alarmingly ill and his youngest child, twelve-year-old Curtina, becomes the kind of problem daughter whom he never imagined she could be. This is only the beginning. The horror of Curtis's childhood secrets, as well as Curtina's wild and rebellious behavior, takes a critical toll on Curtis and the entire Black family. All the public scandals they've experienced over the years now seem like child's play compared to the turmoil they are facing in private. Who could have known that the deepest wounds would come from within?

Love Is a Gamble But Still Try to Win:
The Poetic Soap Opera
By Paul Munson 
$15.00
Order Your Copy Today!
"Love Is A Gamble But Still Try To Win" (The Poetic Soap Opera) is a very relatable book for all adult ages. This is in no way a book for children. I repeat, this book is not for children. This book puts light on different moments in different relationships. Some moments are crazy, and some seem to be perfect. Relationships don't always work the way you think they will and sometimes, they do. Either way, keep pressing your luck. Keep trying to win. This is the only way to ever have a chance at the jack pot of love.
