Forbidden Love is…

an intriguing story.

Father Seamus McCord is a man of the cloth who has convinced himself he can ignore the pestering qualms he’s had for years regarding his choice to become a priest and take his final vows, solidifying his devotion to his vocation.  He’s justified in his mind that he can wall off the doubts and embrace the joy at being assigned to a wonderful parish.  He has good friends in Northern Virginia and it is easy to fall into the fantasy of a full life, always ignoring the dark secret he’s keeping buried deep in his heart.

Just when he believes he has everything planned, his future is pulled out from under him, and the changes he is facing force him to make necessary decisions he’s been putting off for far too long.  It doesn’t help when he meets the pastor of his new parish and learns the man has taken an instant dislike to him.

Meeting a handsome man at a laundromat one night only further complicates the situation and clouds his judgment, bringing more problems he doesn’t need.  All the old doubts he believes to be safely buried push to the surface upon looking into the man’s blue-green eyes as Seamus falls into a spiral, believing the time for prayers of guidance has passed.

If Seamus follows his heart, he might lose his family and his church.  If he ignores that insistent organ and follows his brain, how can he contain the man inside him fighting to get out?

 

Carter Lee Riggs has made mistakes…one of which changed the course of his life forever.  Once he’s finally paid his debt, can he become a productive member of society and control the rage inside him when faced with life’s injustices.  He saved a life, but in the process, he nearly took another. His parents disowned him for his actions, and with the exception of his brother and his family, Carter’s future seems pretty bleak.

One night, a man comes into his workplace and it almost feels as if Carter Lee’s being given another chance at happiness.  It was only a brief encounter, but if Carter had the chance to find the man again, might they have an opportunity at something neither ever expected to find?

Two sinners seeking redemption and guidance happen into each other one night and form a fragile bond, though it seems as if the Universe is conspiring against them when the plans they make together fall apart.  Without any way to contact each other, it seems as if the Universe has won…until they happen into each other under incredible circumstances and find the connection is still there and has grown even stronger.

If there is a way to atone for being less than perfect while seeking their hearts desires, will they take it?  Can two sinners be redeemed by love?

I admit…

I was in a rush to put out “Swim Coach” and the product shows it. I have totally revised the story and added a bonus chapter.  The revision clarifies the confusion of the timeline in the first chapters and corrects some inconsistencies.  I apologize for the first version, and I vow not to rush it again.  If you purchased the book before yesterday, Amazon will automatically push the revised edition to you.  If you read it on Kindle Unlimited, I hope you’ll give it another chance.  Cheers!
