Every heart has a secret . . . 

New York Times bestselling author Mary B. Morrisonreturns with an emotionally charged new novel chroniclingthe sacrifices, betrayals, and choices of three individuals who will do anything for true love...

Is marriage sweeter than the icing on the wedding cake?

That's the question Mona Lisa Cunningham is asking herself as she's wedged between a bounty hunter and a marksman. Mona thinks she's escaped her past and can finally move forward in life now that she's left behind Steven, her husband who refuses to let Mona go-at whatever cost. Now engaged to William, who doesn't know she's legally married to another man, Mona doesn't want to put her or William's life in jeopardy by actually marrying him, so she keeps postponing the wedding. Mona knows how dangerous Steven is and knows that he wouldn't hesitate to kill her or William.

William Lincoln is growing increasingly frustrated with Mona. How many times can one woman reschedule a wedding? That's why when his first love, Katherine Clinton, sends him an e-mail in hopes of reconnecting with him, William takes hold of the opportunity. William has always had regrets over the way his relationship with Katherine ended and now he can set things right.

But when Katherine and him meet, their reunion is intense, so intense that now William is the one postponing the wedding so he can figure out a way to be with his true love while sparing Mona's feelings.  William devises a plan that will spare him having to tell either woman something that will hurt them. But when the scheme goes awry, and the truth comes out, all three lives will be forever changed when they all realize that true love never dies...

Meet Author Iva Lee Elliot

Like most of us, Iva Lee Elliott has seen her share of challenges. Raised in a Christian home and married at nineteen, she moved with her husband, Jerry, every few years as his job led them to various cities. In addition to raising three daughters, she cared for her aging parents, experiencing firsthand the heartbreak of losing one to Alzheimer’s disease. Jerry lost his job three times, all when the family had no other source of income.

In a life-changing moment in her mid-twenties, Elliott knelt at the altar of her church and turned her life over to God. After that she began to feel his hand on her—and that’s when things got really interesting. Whether it was praying about how to feed her family after she’d made a mistake in her checkbook or asking God to find the right house for them, Elliott’s prayers were answered, sometimes in unexpected ways at unexpected times. Even when she had all but given up on her marriage, God led her to see Jerry in a new light, strengthening not only the relationship she had with her husband but the one she had with God.

Elliott’s faith walk includes her thoughts about miracles, healing, the role of angels in our lives, and the decision to leave her denomination of forty-five years and join another. You’ll also see how she has been touched by her friendship with Monica, a Kenyan woman with her own remarkable faith journey and story to tell.

A definite add for religious collections, inspirational collections, and for readers looking for book of positive messages.
