The Reverend's Disciple
Reverend Jesse Dixon has always been "the helper." He's the living definition of the expression beauty for ashes. He's experienced a lot of heartbreak in his forty-some years on this earth, including the suicide of his first lover. But he didn't let it define his life or make him bitter.
Steven is the exact opposite. Abandoned as a baby on the steps of a west-end church; he grew up in a house for orphan and wayward boys. When a tragic accident happens that takes the life of the home's overseeing Reverend, the church finds itself placing an ad for a new one. One who can handle the challenges of running the church and the boy's home.
Steven is eighteen and the former Reverend and he had an arrangement that permitted him to keep living at the home, despite the fact he's too old to be adopted. However, that security come into question when he learns the church has hired a new Reverend, Jesse.
At first, he doesn't know what to make of the man. But he decides for fun and games he'll make Jesse sweat a little by shamelessly flirting and teasing him. But Jesse resists his flirtations for the sake of his calling. The last thing on his mind is taking advantage of someone he's mentoring. But just how long can the good Reverend resist Steven's teasing before something happens between them?
Join Daniel Elijah Sanderfer for the long-awaited sequel to his best-selling novella, A Prayer For Love.
