Publisher's Summary

Kimberla Lawson Roby's fans can't get enough of the Reverend Curtis Black - that self-justifying, greedy, womanizing flimflam man who is one of the biggest rascals ever to step into a church.

In this outing, Curtis is starting over. He has a new job and a new wife, and of course he's convinced himself that this time he'll be good. But Curtis hasn't ever made a promise he could keep, and before long, he's up to his old tricks. The difference now is his third wife. She's unlike any woman Curtis has met before. And for the first time in his life, Curtis just might have met his match. Watch the sparks fly!

Contains mature themes.

    "Great read"

    A book in the revered Curtis series that doesn't require any of the other books be read. I would recommend this to fans of the author, or of the series. Nicely done, I especially like the character Marisa.

    "Great reading"

    This third installment held my attention. I think the detailed descriptions of the sexual acts could have been left out.

    "Tired and played out"

    I have read other books in the series but somehow missed this one. Out of curiosity, I bought it and immediately regretted it. I wasn't missing a thing! This is the same old sordid bunch of manipulative, corrupt, secretive liars with a played out story line. The whole family cheats, There is no one to feel good about. And the worst offense of all is Pastor Black addressing people as "Negro" all the time. How ridiculous does that sound? Please end this miserable series!
