In this page-turning new novel from Essence® bestselling author Tiffany L. Warren, Atlanta’s most eligible widower isn’t looking to remarry—but for one woman, that’s a mere detail. . .
Five years after his beloved wife’s death, wealthy Quentin Chambers still hasn’t returned to the church or his music ministry. Even his home is now devoid of music, and without his attention, Quentin’s five children are getting out of control—until his mother steps in and hires him a live-in nanny. Montana is pretty, compassionate, church-going, and even has a beautiful singing voice. The children take to her right away, and soon enough Quentin finds his heart opening to faith—and love—once more. But not everyone loves Montana. . .
A friend of Quentin’s first wife, Chloe has been scheming to become the next Mrs. Chambers since the funeral. Chloe is convinced she’s just one seduction away from a marriage proposal. Now she’ll do whatever it takes to get rid of Montana—including blackmail, theft—and digging up a troublemaking man from Montana’s past. But Chloe forgets she’s got secrets of her own, and the tables may turn with a twist she never sees coming. . .

Interview with Tiffany L. Warren
When did you realize you had a book (or some books) inside you?
I don’t actually remember when I started writing. It’s like trying to remember when I took my first step. I was an early reader, so I’ve been reading since before Kindergarten. I think when I learned to read, I naturally emulated the stories that I was reading. I started to consider writing as a career in the 8th grade. My English teacher told me that he thought I should be a writer. I guess I just needed a word of affirmation in my life, because I went full steam ahead with it after that.
Why is the theme of this project important?
The themes of all my books are reconciliation and redemption. Because I write inspirational fiction, I think people sometimes expect my characters to be perfect and their lives to be perfect. But my characters are flawed. Their lives are relatable.
What did you learn about yourself while writing this book?
That I haven’t experienced much grief in my life. The main character, Quentin, lost his first wife to cancer and five years later he’s still struggling with it. I had a very tough childhood, but as children we are resilient. I never thought that my life was a struggle. But grief is a very different thing.
How do you find time to write?
I don’t find time. There is none to be found if I handle everything I need to on a daily basis. I have a full time government job, a husband, and five children. I make time to write because it is my passion. I was put on this earth to write…not do laundry 🙂
If you could work on a writing project with anyone (dead or alive), who would it be? Why?
Hands down, Octavia E. Butler. When I first read her work, I didn’t know she was African American, because her very early covers didn’t have black people on them. There are so few black women in science fiction, and I would like to write in that genre one day. Her stories are classic and timeless. If she was still alive, I would want to sit at her feet and learn.
