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.

Wow!!!

All I have to say is Curtis and Charlotte are meant for each other. They're thought process is parallel and they don't even know it. I love this series and I love the narrator!

Curtis Vs Chatolette

This book is was pretty good, Curtis finally met his match. Charolette learned from the best, she gave Curtis what he wanted all alone. Someone who carry out his legacy. On to the next book.

Another good one!

First, I know this is a fictional story with fictional characters, but I am throughly drawn in to this series for the pure drama and I’m never disappointed. This story was different I might say as ‘Ol Curtis got a taste of his own damn medicine, for once, yet I wasn’t surprised that he couldn’t take what he had often dished (most doggish men can’t). Looking forward to Book 4, I’m trying to see where Kimberla is going with this, LOL! :)
