attentions of Adrien, a childhood friend. Because above all, Claire is nice.
And she has every intention of marrying the assistant pastor at her
church…if he would ever get serious enough to ask her. Of course she's
attracted to Adrien--who wouldn't be--but how could she be serious about a
man who dumps her entire wardrobe into a trash can, has eyes the color of
the Mediterranean Sea and exudes charm like an air freshener? A man who
will cause her to question the underpinnings of her faith; who will not only
show her how to love, but also how to laugh. And live. Faith can be alive
and real in a different culture than your own. Being a Christian doesn’t
mean forsaking pleasure. Sound radical? It is for Claire.

better), I’d love to post it here, on the website. And then you’ll be
