Sins of the Father

  • $11.99 List Price

God asked the biblical Abraham to sacrifice his son. But Abraham Martin’s only god is money.

Successful media mogul Abraham Martin has great wealth, an elegant wife, Saralyn, and a rebellious son, Isaac. He also has a secret: a second family that no one knows about. Now, after thirty years—driven by the urging of his long dormant conscience—Abraham is determined to do the right thing by finally bringing his illegitimate children into the light…and into the family fold.

But beautiful, manipulative Saralyn will never accept the proof of her husband’s indiscretions. Isaac, the heir, shaken by his father’s revelations, will fight mercilessly when his world is threatened, and may lose everything that matters as a result. And while Abraham’s forgotten daughter, Deborah, is open to the undreamed-of possibilities suddenly awaiting her, his son, Michael, cannot forgive the man who cruelly abandoned them to near poverty. And he’s driven by only one desire: revenge!

Angela Benson’s Sins of the Father is a powerful story of a house bitterly divided—a rich, multilayered family saga of betrayal and redemption, rage and compassion, faith, forgiveness, and ultimately, of love.

Coming Home: Jackson Falls Book 1 (Jackson Falls Series)

From the USA Today bestselling author of FINAL EXIT comes an unforgettable romance novel about love, friendship, and the fine line between the two.

One man became her husband. He had the face of an angel, and a voice that could peel the paper off the walls.

Songwriter Casey Bradley is just 18 years old when handsome, charismatic singer Danny Fiore crashes into her life and her heart. Danny has a white-hot talent and a single, blinding ambition: to become a rock star. The songs that Casey writes send an icy blue finger down the center of his cynical spine. But Danny knows exactly where he’s going, and he has no intention of taking any woman along. A girl like Casey would want things he’s not prepared to give. A home. Stability. Children. He’s married to his music, and that’s the way he likes it.

Casey is engaged to her childhood sweetheart, her wedding just four weeks away. There’s no room in her life or Danny’s for an extracurricular love affair. Besides, she’s a good girl who doesn’t believe in casual sex. But nothing between them could ever be casual, and the first time she looks into Danny Fiore’s eyes, Casey is ready to toss away her entire future for a man who’s almost certain to break her heart.

Neither of them plans on falling in love. But sometimes, the heart has a mind of its own.
