Magnolia’s Fall From Grace
Summer 1993, in hurricane-ravaged Louisiana Bayou, volunteers arrived at a mission camp to rebuild homes. From two different worlds, Venom and Magnolia were warned that they could never work, but their souls were not convinced. Taking a chance on each other wasn’t a choice, it was written in the stars. Friendships formed, loyalties were tested, innocence was lost, and an epic love was born. But sometimes, no matter how epic one’s love is, fate has other plans. What if happily ever after isn’t everyone’s destiny?
They say God forgives any sin if you are truly sorry, but was I sorry? It took less than ninety days for a lifetime of beliefs to be shattered, rules to be broken, and for me to throw away everything for him. I was tempted by the serpent and I allowed him to slither into my life. I fell under his spell, letting Venom course through my veins, intoxicating me in both pleasure and pain. His violet eyes called to me, wore me down, and drew me into his world. I knew better and I want to say I tried to resist, but that would be another lie to add to the long list of sins I committed. Now, giving him up may be the only way to save his soul and mine.
I never believed in angels until the day I laid eyes on Magnolia Grace. Under any other circumstances, no Cajun King prince would come across a girl like her. Maggie was pure and good. She opened my eyes and made me question everything I knew. Involving her in my life was dangerous, and could hurt us both, but I couldn’t help myself. I didn’t know how deep I would fall. She was my addiction, but the more she introduced me to her world, the more I knew she didn’t fit into mine. We agreed to give ourselves the summer. No regrets. Now, the nights have grown shorter, signaling our end is near. Can I let her go, or will it all crash down around us?
