Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: Yarni Taylor is a successful corporate attorney who wants nothing more than her husband, Des, to renounce his hustlin' ways and commit to his life as a pastor, especially after someone tries to kill him. But Des isn't ready to abandon his old habits just yet. He has to find out who is behind the murder attempt, and he wonders if the brazen robbery that took place during one of his church services is related in any way. But before he or Yarni can regain their footing, a young woman shows up on their doorsteps, December Day, the eighteen-year-old daughter Des never knew he had. And, unfortunately, she takes after her father, so trouble isn't far behind. With their lives on the line, Yarni must sacrifice everything and take it out of the office and back to the streets to save her husband and her family from their checkered but intricately connected pasts.--From back cover.
