Chism Talbert had loved her first, and best -- but he had broken her heart. He was the caretaker's handsome son.
She was Minta Westerly, the privileged girl who'd surrendered to him one starry summer night -- then been abandoned when he abruptly left town. Now she was back in the big house where she'd spent family vacations -- and suddenly, impossibly, Chism walked through the door, pinning her with mesmerizing eyes that burned with fury and desire. Both were haunted by the dreams they'd woven together, the promises they'd whispered under a willow tree -- and both were devastated by a misunderstanding that still felt like a betrayal. But the years apart and the pain they had denied only fed the fires of passion that sizzled within. Minta longed to taste the magic of Chism's lips once more, even if he insisted that time had made them strangers. Could she make him see she belonged in his world, and that he would have a home in her heart forever?

Prayer didn’t work. Fasting didn’t work. Psychotherapy and inner healing didn’t work. Deliverance failed. And reparative therapy made me want to commit suicide. I tried everything over the course of twenty years to rid myself of same-sex attraction. I realized I could no longer deny who I was simply because my spiritual community held narrowly prescribed notions of what was acceptable, moral, and holy. So I decided to be true to myself, to discover who God had really made me to be. I came out of the closet and took Christ with me. “God loves the sinner but hates the sin,” she said. The only Christian from my former life who maintained contact with me through my early coming out process finally said she was “concerned” with my “lifestyle choice” (implying I had chosen a life of sin). I answered with a long letter sharing my feelings and espousing my hard-earned beliefs. “Response to a Concerned Heterosexual Christian” is adapted from this reply. It details my struggle and everything I did to overcome it. With twenty years in the evangelical charismatic church, a masters in biblical studies, years in Christian publishing and missions work, and time spent pastoring, I present this contemporary issue from a personal viewpoint that’s scripturally educated. Do LGBT people need to be fixed, healed? Does the stance of conservative Christianity represent the nature of God and Christ to everyone? Do we have scriptural precedent for accepting LGBT people just as they are? If you’ve struggled with these issues regard of your orientation, you owe it to yourself and all those inside and outside of Christ’s fold to foster a new understanding, “That they may be one as we are one” (John 17:11,22).
**On sale for a limited time** Cassie Callington has finally met a man who makes her insides quiver, her heartbeat race and her body sizzle. And he barely even knows she’s alive.
An enforcer for the Shadowpeak pack, Jay Chance is ripped, sexy, a complete and utter hunk—he’s also way out of her league. Still, there’s no rule that says she can’t look, right? Except she finds herself doing more than looking, she’s touching, tasting, licking...yum. But it was never meant to be. He’s a werewolf and wants another. She’s a human and on the next bus out of town. Nope, it would never work. Would it? Please note that this is a series, while there is no cliffhanger, it would be better to read these books in order as there is a storyline running through them. This book was previously published as Chasing Cassie. It has been revised and re-edited.
