Caleb ‘Will’ Williams has spent his whole life waiting for ‘the promised land’ that his grandparents and so many others in the civil rights movement worked to build. His special gift has helped him to rise in first the Houston police department and now the agency. But it is all falling apart, his life and the whole ‘blessed’ world.
Mercy Reynolds’s life might be a bit staid. After all, she is a thirty-two-year-old virgin librarian in small-town Sebida, Texas. But that’s because she’s never met a man who makes her hotter than her ‘book boyfriends.’ Now her big sister is back in town, and trouble has followed her. What’s a virgin librarian to do when she shoots the sheriff?
Will has traded his soul to the devil, or Gerald McBride. It’s not like he has anything left to live for anyway. There is just one more thing he needs to do. So, he follows the only clue there is in the disappearance of his cousin to Sebida, Texas. But what he finds there changes everything.
Rated: R+ for strong sexual content, including first time and impregnation. Its language is more colorful than others in the series, too.
***Note*** While this couple are bi-racial, this is at its core a love story that transcends race. Nonetheless, racism does play a central role in both Will’s backstory and how others treat them. It also deals with the issues of human trafficking and sexual exploitation of children. There are no vivid depictions of such acts, only references to them.
