Las Vegas, NV – National bestselling author Lutishia Lovely has gone back to church! After two years and the release of The Shady Sisters Trilogy, a thrilling series of romantic suspense, Lovely has come home to the series the fans love most.
In A Date With Destiny, the ninth installment of the Hallelujah Series, Nathaniel “Nate” Thicke (Reverend Feelgood) and his gorgeous wife, Destiny, have returned to the United States and to ministry. This after surviving a public scandal of national proportion that had him removed from his Texas parish and stripped of his membership to the Total Truth Organization. The couple fled to Turks & Caicos to recoup and regroup. Five years later he is now in Las Vegas and the senior pastor of Divine Grace Christian Center. Divine Grace is just what he’ll need.
He arrives to a church where some members are quite comfortable with the status quo, and to an assistant pastor who feels Nate has the title that belongs to him. His brother, the head deacon, concurs. He believes the brothers helped build the ministry, and are entitled to the prominence they’ve gained. Unfortunately one of the brothers would like to add something else to his status…Destiny.
According to Domestic Violence Statistics, every nine seconds a woman is assaulted or beaten. That’s one in three women around the world. Most of these assaults come at the hand of a family member or close friend. Equally disturbing are the number of people, adult and children, who are sexually assaulted. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says that one in five women, and one in seventy-one men, will be assaulted in their lifetime. Even more alarming, 42.7 female victims are assaulted before age eighteen, while 52.4 male victims are assaulted by someone they know. You’ll find these and other national epidemics played out in this page-turning book. Hopefully this will spark meaningful discussions that lead to positive change.
“A great new taste in the literary world,” is how NYT-Bestselling author Carl Weber describes Ms. Lovely. This book is sure to whet a reader’s appetite and leave them satisfied.
