Grant Spencer figures the woman sent to set things right at the publishing house is Linwood’s spy, likely sent to set him up to fail and push him out. Grant might be forced to have her here since Linwood owns the controlling interest in the company, but he didn’t have to like it. However, he hadn’t expected her to be so young or attractive, but if she thinks that will cause him to change his mind about her, she can just think again.

Meredith Reed has agreed to do an old friend a favor and see if she could put a struggling publishing company in the black, but she hadn’t expected to be met with such resistance. Grant Spencer acts more like a fire-breathing dragon than the handsome man he is. However, she is determined to treat him as she should, no matter how he treats her. She’s determined to pull the company out of the red, regardless of him, even though she has only from October to February to do so.


Reading is AMAZING!

I am Not The King

A Personal Testimony of Growth in Jesus Christ

by Allen TaylorI am Not The King

I Am Not the King is an intense spiritual memoir told in crisp, fresh language, a story full of dark moments that lead to a greater Light.

Through family dysfunction, a verbally abusive father, and religious legalism, the author enters adulthood angry, bitter, and confused. He oscillates between his self-imposed literary hermitage and bisexual escapades until an atheist college professor challenges him to think more deeply about the meaning of life. After a life-changing “upper room” experience, he spends the next twenty-eight years wrestling with God. I Am Not the King takes the reader on a wild journey involving broken relationships, workplace challenges, disappointments with other Christians, struggles with sin and temptation, and fear and doubt.

Allen Taylor shares with transparency and uncanny openness how he discovers he is not the king of his life. His story shows how anger and resentment turn to joy and peace in the arms of the real King.

More than a memoir, I Am Not the King includes discussion questions for group leaders after each chapter.

Sing aloud, O daughter of Zion; shout, O Israel! Rejoice and exult with all your heart, O daughter of Jerusalem! – Zephaniah 3:14 ESV


I fell in love with a messenger. What can I say, I am happily married, but there is something about the way this messenger spoke that made my heart flutter—such clarity in the words, such mystery, while at the same time, so confidently precise. The message made me realize I didn’t quit understand love nor the completeness of it. Love is deeper than I could imagine.

The message came from heaven and spoke of love, redemption, special preparations, and they were all encapsulated in love.

The messenger said it was a message of love for the lost and hurting, widowed and orphaned, poor and wealthy. He said it was for all people and even included the marginalized from the society. I pondered what kind of love has its eyes so wide open that it makes it blind?
