Do you like chocolate? I love it! Ever since I was a kid, I’ve always craved the delicious sweetness of chocolate. I love chocolate candy, cookies and cake! Chocolate pie is also fabulous!
As I got older, I noticed that chocolate is often paired with romance! When I attend romance writers’ conferences, there’s always lots of chocolate candy shared among authors. Since Valentine’s Day is coming up, I’m sure a lot of you will be indulging in chocolate candy from heart-shaped boxes. This Valentine’s Day, not only can we be thankful for romantic love, but, we also need to be thankful for the love of our Savior!
So, this Valentines’ Day, when as you enjoy your chocolate with your significant other, come and enjoy Shades of Chocolate. It’s a perfect treat to enjoy this Valentines’ Day!
Shades of Chocolate is the first book I had published several years ago. It was originally published exclusively by Doubleday’s Crossings Book Club (under a different title). When I got the rights back to my story, I rewrote it and re-released it. I wrote Shades of Chocolate because I wanted to show how people struggle to accept Jesus after enduring pain in their lives. I hope you enjoy reading this romantic suspense as much as I enjoyed writing it! I loved creating these characters and when I was writing about the chocolate desserts, my mouth watered! There’s also a delicious chocolate cream pie recipe featured at the end of my story.
