From USA Today Bestselling Author, JoAnn Durgin, the beloved Lewis Legacy Series concludes with Assurance, the final novel in this heartwarming and beloved contemporary Christian romance series.

Carson Lewis lives in the shadow of his two older brothers. Kind of hard not to when one is a NASA hero who changed the world. Busy with his church ministry for the past decade, Carson pushed love to the back burner. Everything changes when beautiful Karina Delgado—who also works as an event planner for his sister-in-law Lexa’s catering company—volunteers at the same downtown Houston youth center. He’s more than smitten, but as Carson learns more about the intensely private Karina, he discovers a soul deeply wounded by a past more complicated than he could ever imagine.

Karina Delgado’s career as a principal ballerina ended the night she was dropped onstage. Determined not to allow the injury to steal her joy, she finds deep satisfaction in teaching teenage girls at the inner-city center. She’s drawn to the handsome and persistent Carson Lewis, but she knows he won’t stick around once he uncovers the secret heartache she carries.

Angelina Morris has been best friends with Felipe Hernandez ever since she first met him on the eventful TeamWork mission in New Mexico a decade ago. Felipe’s never been shy about expressing his desire for a romantic relationship with her, but so far, she’s put him off. When he begins to distance himself and exhibits subtle changes, Angelina knows she needs to make a commitment or risk losing him.

Felipe Hernandez practically raised himself from the time he was a teenager. The former juvenile delinquent is now an ambitious San Antonio police officer. When he gets the opportunity of a lifetime, he’s chomping at the bit to get started. The only problem is, he can’t tell anyone, including Angelina, the woman he’s loved for years. He’s suddenly stuck between two worlds without a clue how to navigate both.

Assurance. A story of self-discovery and seeking God’s will. A story of finding love and devastating personal loss. A book with twists and turns that will make you laugh and cry. An engaging novel whose characters and stories will stay with you long after you turn the last page.
