Stuck on You
Back in college, Braxton Stoneworth and Tiffany Warren were just friends…until one spring night heightened their feelings for one another. Yet when they returned to school in the fall, Braxton made a decision that drove Tiffany to transfer schools and never look back.
Now, nearly a decade later, they meet again as business experts vying for the same contract at a prestigious school. In addition to their professional competition, tensions mount as Braxton and Tiffany discover that they have two different versions of what happened to their romance so long ago. Can they overcome hard feelings and pick up where they left off?
Tiffany’s father passed away a few months ago, just as she was founding her new project management firm. She wonders if her leap of faith was a good move, and her doubts only increase when she learns that someone from the firm she left is trying to undermine her independent efforts…not to mention her possibilities with Braxton.
Braxton thought he might follow his father’s footsteps into ministry. His wild fraternity days caught up with him, however, causing Braxton to give up the idea of teaching anyone to follow the faith he so obviously neglected. Can he win back his own self-respect and the heart of the woman he never forgot?

Why I wrote this story
I love a loving, sweet, godly woman (hence Mama B!) and so many of us have been nurtured by our mothers, grandmothers, and aunts who have shown us the love of God through affection, correction, and a sweet potato pie. But for reasons various and sundry, some of us haven’t had the experience of this same godly love from a father figure, and that often causes us to misunderstand our heavenly Father. The Stoneworths, dating back to 1865, are a picture of what happens when generation after generation of men bring a strong faith to bear on family, business, and every aspect of life.
