Pat Simmons-July Blast #14

Want to celebrate Christmas in July? Are you ready for a new series?

You can both with my July Blast #14 Specials.

The Jamieson Legacy Guilty series is rocking at eight books strong and growing. 
Want to fall in love with some bad boys and good girls that lead them to Christ?

Hello everyone, I'm Pat Simmons and let me introduce you to my world of characters:
If you enjoy American history, then download Guilty of Love today. It features a family who are tenth generation descendants of a royal African tribe, an out of control childless widow, Grandma BB, and a touching story of redemption. Guilty of Love is only .99/

When do you know the most important decision of your life is the right one? Reaping the seeds from what she's sown; Cheney Reynolds moves into a historic neighborhood in Ferguson, Missouri, and becomes a reclusive. Her first neighbor, the incomparable Mrs. Beatrice Tilley Beacon aka Grandma BB, is an opinionated childless widow. Grandma BB is a self-proclaimed expert on topics Cheney isn't seeking advice--everything from landscaping to hip-hop dancing to romance. Then there is Parke Kokumuo Jamison VI, a direct descendant of a royal African tribe. He learned his family ancestry, African history, and lineage preservation before he could count. Unwittingly, they are drawn to each other, but it takes Christ to weave their lives into a spiritual bliss while He exonerates their past indiscretions.

Candace Clark has a phobia about crossing the street, and for good reason. As fate would have it, her daughter's principal assigns her to crossing guard duties as part of the school's Parent Participation program. With no choice in the matter, Candace begrudgingly accepts her stop sign and safety vest, then reports to her designated crosswalk. Once Candace is determined to overcome her fears, God opens the door for a blessing, and Royce Kavanaugh enters into her life, a firefighter built to rescue any damsel in distress. When a spark of attraction ignites, Candace and Royce soon discover there's more than one way to stop traffic.
