Out Now: The Magician (The Lincolns 11)

Hi lovelies,

I hope you’re well at this time. Here in the UK, we’re still in lockdown. I think this is week 5. The days have all started to blend together. It’s amazing that I know it’s Thursday today, but that’s only because I have a new release 🙂

The Magician

Xy Lincoln has no idea his life is about to change as he takes the stage to premiere a brand new line of tricks.

Everything is going perfectly until the climax of the show when he tries to levitate the whole audience and his power vanishes.

Then he senses her.

In the audience, a woman is praying. And Xy is powerless to continue his show if she doesn’t stop.

That woman is Sian Michaels. Beautiful, famous and pretty much perfect. But most of Xy’s brothers have followed Christian women out of the occult and he’s determined it won’t happen to him. He will pull out all the stops to make Sian lose her faith rather than let her make him lose his craft.

Then the Lincoln family is thrown into chaos when a powerful Practitioner kidnaps Xy’s favorite nephew, Paul (Saul’s son). Xy’s power is no match for this invisible enemy. But Sian has all these ideas about God’s power being supreme. Dangerous ideas that Xy doesn’t even want to consider.

Follow Xy Lincoln as he tries to save his nephew, grapples with what it means to truly be powerful, and discovers a shocking secret about his ‘deceased’ brother, Junior.

Out Now: The Assassin (The Lincolns 10)

Hi guys,

I’ve emerged from my writing cave to release a new book 💃💃💃

It’s sooo good to be back publishing again.

If you follow me on social media you already know about this book. If you don’t I guess this is a nice surprise 🙂 🙂

Amazon UK | Amazon US | B&N | iBooks | Kobo | Smashwords

The Assassin

He’s written his suicide note and loaded his gun…when the doorbell rings.

It’s one of those door-to-door preachers.

But this one is a woman.

And she’s smokin’ hot…

She wants to help. She thinks Jesus can wave a magic wand—metaphorically speaking—and everything will be better. And the crazy thing is, he believes her.

She’s the kind of woman most men don’t even bother to wish for and he’ll do anything to keep her from slipping between his fingers. Including hide who he truly is.

She has no idea about the waking nightmare he’s living.

Until his masters show him her picture as his next target.

Can Salem and Rae survive the danger that is headed their way?

Buy now @ Amazon UK | Amazon US | B&N | iBooks | Kobo | Smashwords

Facts about Salem:

– he has barely spoken in the previous nine books of the series
– his brothers think he’s depressed and incapable of doing anything for himself
– he’s secretly way more powerful than any of his brothers imagine
– his secret wish is to find a Christian woman who will ‘save’ him from his waking nightmare (like so many of his brothers have)

I hope you enjoy it.

God bless xx

P.S. Props to my husband for designing such a great cover 🥰🥰

Out Now: The Player (The Lincolns 9)

Hi guys,

The Player, Solomon Lincoln’s book, released yesterday!!!

Since so many of you pre-ordered, a lot of you have already read it. I really wish I could write as fast as some of you guys read 🙂 I’d like to say a huge thank you for the sweet messages you’ve sent me about The Player.

I’m so glad that those of you who have already read it have enjoyed it.

From the Back Cover

Everyone knows that good girls love bad boys…
But what happens when the bad boy crosses paths with the dangerous woman?

Women are to be enjoyed not understood.

That is Solomon Lincoln’s motto. He isn’t looking for love—especially not with a woman from the Capello family. But there’s something about Nicole Capello, with her stony eyes and badass attitude.

There are many types of woman, but the toughest to crack are the independent woman and the dangerous woman. Nicole is a combination of both. But Solomon has never backed down from a challenge, and he isn’t about to start now.

Men will treat you like dirt—if you let them.

Nicole is not about to fall for Solomon’s charms. Firstly, he’s a Lincoln. Secondly, she’s been ordered to kill him. As an executioner for a shadowy group of powerful practitioners, she has a reputation to uphold. She never fails to deliver.

However, things get complicated when, by some miracle, Solomon gets under her skin.

But sparing him is not an option. If Nicole doesn’t kill him, his enemies will become her enemies and they will both die.

God will get in your way simply because He can.

Neither Solomon nor Nicole believes in God. But it soon becomes clear that God believes in them.

Can this self-proclaimed Alpha male and this fiercely powerful feminist turn to God…and to each other?

Buy now and prepare for an unforgettable ride!

The Innovator is finally here!

Buy at Amazon, B&N, iBooks, Kobo or Smashwords.

Thank you to everyone who has already bought it. (I have a question for you guys so make sure to read to the end of this post)

When I released the first book in the Lincolns series, The Lincoln Manifesto, I had no idea that you guys were going to immediately pick on Saul Lincoln as your favorite Lincoln brother. Especially when he spent The Lincoln Manifesto pining for his brother’s fiancé.

Since the Lincoln Manifesto, I have had so many requests for Saul’s book. (In case you were wondering, the other brothers that I get a lot of requests for are Jared and Salem). Saul finally gets his story in The Innovator.

If you pre-ordered, The Innovator will already be on your reading device 😊😊

***

She disappeared without a trace and took his heart with her.

A year later, Saul Lincoln is no closer to moving on.

He decides to track her down.

But with her newfound faith and the powerful enemies on their heels, it seems there are just too many obstacles.

What early readers are saying about The Innovator:

“Another winner!”
“It was a joy to read.”
“I love the soap opera ending.”
“Dayo has a great way of hooking you into a love story with a saint, sinner, and Jesus. “

Get The Innovator at Amazon, B&N, iBooks, Kobo or Smashwords.

 

Amazon Exclusivity

I know that many of you who don’t buy from Amazon are already invested in the Lincoln series. Therefore, The Innovator will be available at all online stores for two weeks only. After that, it will be available only on Amazon. Make sure to snap it up as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

A tale of two brothers, the girl that came between them, and God’s unfailing love.

Book 1, The Lincoln Manifesto, is free today. Grab it before the offer runs out at midnight.

The Lincolns series is all stand-alone books, each with a satisfying, heartwarming conclusion. However, book 1 gives a nice introduction to all of the Lincoln brothers

So, guys, we’re getting to the end of the Lincolns. What would you like to see in the following books?
The brothers left to write about are Solomon (he’s next), Salem, Hades, Xy and Jared.

Out Now: The Chef (The Lincolns 7)

Hi Peeps,

Hope you’re well and are having better weather than us here in the UK. We woke up to snow yesterday morning, just when I thought spring is on the horizon 🙂

I’ve had lots of (semi) patient emails about when the next Lincoln book will be out so I’m happy to announce that it’s out now!!! I’m really excited about this book because I got to deal with some themes that are really close to my heart, such as how God favours and blesses the undeserving and how true love can overcome any challenge.
I won’t go into too much detail because the synopsis is below and I also wrote a blog post introducing the book a few weeks ago, which you can read by clicking HERE.

Get your copy of The Chef: AmazoniBooksKoboSmashwords.
(coming soon to B&N)

From the Back Cover

Lilah Luckett was promised a protector.

As a coven slave, Lilah is desperate for freedom. The only way that can happen is if a practitioner more powerful than her master takes her under his wing.

Enter, the enchanting Locke Lincoln.

His surfer dude good looks are enough to make any girl crave shelter in his arms, but he’s more than just a pretty face; he also has the power to be Lilah’s protector. But how does Lilah get his attention?

Locke Lincoln is looking for distraction.
Locke’s younger brother was the closest friend he ever had. Now that he’s dead, Locke’s life is in turmoil. When Lilah shows up, offering fun in Vegas and an escape from reality, Locke is game.

Neither of them has any idea what is about to happen.
Locke seems perfect, but he’s far from it. He is fighting dark forces that want him to continue his father’s evil agenda. It seems becoming a Christian means nothing when blood covenants have been made and oaths taken.

Then Lilah’s past catches up with her and all her careful plans begin to crumble.

Will Locke be able to escape the clutches of his father’s legacy?
And once he works out that Lilah is just using him, will he fight for her or let her die?

Thank you to everyone who emailed me after The Physician to let me know which is their favourite Lincoln book so far. Also, thanks to all who commented on my last post and told me which Lincoln series heroine they like best. I really appreciate it and I’m ever grateful to have such awesome readers.

God bless 🙂

About The Chef (The Lincolns 7)/Update on Daily Bible Reading

Hello, lovelies!

So, last week I posted the book cover for the next Lincoln book, The Chef, on all my social media platforms. It’s fabulous, isn’t it? Now, I want to give you some information about the book. Unfortunately, I don’t have a release date yet because I’ve just sent it to my editor and she is really busy at the moment so she won’t be able to get it edited as fast as she usually does, so I’ll just have to wait and see.

About Locke Lincoln

He’s the brother who got saved along with Ash in The Model. He’s the third to last of the 12 brothers (after him are Solomon and then Junior). He moved out of the Lincoln mansion with Ash when they both got saved, but then moved back in when Rebel and Taye became Christians, because the whole plan was to try and influence the non-Christian brothers rather than deserting them. You saw plenty of him in The Physician, locking horns with Jared and being a kind of spiritual mentor to Rebel and Taye.

He was fun to write about because being one of the youngest brothers he’s pretty naive and trusting.  He was extremely close to Junior and is dealing with pretty bad depression over Junior’s death. His depression causes him to make some reckless decisions in this book.

About Lilah Luckett

She’s a thief, a practitioner from early childhood and a coven slave. And she wants to escape. She will do anything to get her freedom, even manipulate Locke. Her full name is Delilah–go figure 🙂

You guys will have to tell me which heroine is your favourite so far so that I know which type of heroine is resonating with you. Here’s a list of all the heroine’s so far. I really want your opinion:

  1. Ivy (Saul – and Jared, kind of) – The Lincoln Manifesto
  2. Calcy (Jared) – The Lincoln Manifesto
  3. Keltie (Ash) – The Model
  4. Hazel (Junior) – The Runaway
  5. Andie (Nigel) – The Record Boss
  6. Kara (Taye) – The Designer
  7. Daisy (Rebel) – The Physician

Anyway, here’s the back cover blurb for The Chef. It could very well change since it hasn’t been edited yet and I’m awaiting feedback on it.

From the Back Cover

Lilah Luckett was promised a protector.

Will Locke be able to escape the clutches of his father’s legacy?

And once he works out that Lilah is just using him, will he fight for her or let her die?

***

The Chef spans the time from the end of The Model to a few months after The Physician, so I had to think really hard about how to show that time has passed. At the beginning of the book Junior has just ‘died’ and none of the brothers are Christians and by the end everyone who became Christians in subsequent books are Christian. I hope I’m making sense, ha ha.

***

For those of you who have been looking out for my daily Bible reading videos, I owe you a huge apology. In the below video I explain what’s going on:

God bless 🙂 🙂

Out Now: The Physician (The Lincolns 6)

Hello Lovelies 🙂

The Physician (The Lincolns 6) has gone live!!!

Get your copy at: Amazon, iBooks, Kobo, Smashwords (coming soon to B&N)

I’m so excited about this book. I can’t wait for you guys to read it.

Here’s the Back Cover Blurb for anyone who hasn’t read it yet:

The murder he can’t remember
New Christian, Rebel Lincoln, is horrified to wake up in a hotel room next to a dead body and with no memory of how he got there. Being a Christian is supposed to invite peace, love, and joy into his life, right? So why has Rebel’s life suddenly taken such a disastrous turn?

The girl who got away
Forensic scientist, Daisy Bell, met Rebel months ago on his brother’s yacht. They connected, but she has too many issues and too many secrets, so she gave him a fake number and they lost touch. Now, she is investigating his case and needs to be cool and detached—but heat simmers beneath the surface. She believes him when he says he’s been framed, but could her judgment be clouded by his pretty, blue eyes?

The right thing at the wrong time
Daisy is everything Rebel wants in a woman, and her sassy attitude only makes him crave her more. But with the ongoing murder investigation, the timing couldn’t be worse. She’s the only person who believes in his innocence, but as the pressure mounts and new evidence is revealed Rebel is driven to desperation. And desperate actions can cause even those who love you to leave you.
Rebel didn’t realize becoming a Christian would invite so much madness into his life. So many of his brothers have gone before him so he expected an easy ride. But there is nothing easy about life right now. Someone is out to destroy him. That someone must be unmasked or Rebel is headed to jail and can forget about ever winning Daisy’s heart.

Who has framed Rebel Lincoln?

Cover Reveal – The Physician (The Lincolns 6)

Hi Peeps,

The next Lincoln book, The Physician, is almost ready to be released 🙂 🙂 🙂

This will be my last book for this year. Then I think I might hibernate for a while (maybe around 6 months) and get the rest of the series all written before I publish the next book. I could change my mind about this, but at the moment, that’s what I’m inclined to do.

Anyway, to find out more about The Physician, watch the below video. I talk about some of the scriptures that inspired the book (I’ll be posting the back cover blurb tomorrow).

https://youtu.be/YvU_6ZcBJQA

If you don’t like watching videos, here’s a summary of what I said:

The Physician is Rebel Lincoln’s book and it was good to write about Rebel because he’s a little bit different from the other Lincoln brothers that I’ve written about so far. He’s kind of mellow and easy-going, but he’s also got this really impulsive side to him. You’ll see what I mean when you read the book 🙂

The heroine’s name is Daisy. You guys met her in The Model (The Lincolns 2). She’s one of Keltie’s friends who goes to Ash Lincoln’s yacht with Keltie, so reread that scene from The Model and reacquaint yourself with Daisy.

At the beginning of each Lincoln book I usually have a Scripture which serves as the controlling idea or main theme for the book. For The Physician I took my inspiration from  Matthew 10:21-37 where Jesus is talking about how he didn’t come to bring peace, and oftentimes when somebody accepts Jesus into their lives it makes them a target and can cause strain in their closest relationships.

Matthew 10:21-22 says, ‘Now brother will deliver up brother to death, and a father his child; and children will rise up against parents and cause them to be put to death. And you will be hated by all for My name’s sake. But he who endures to the end will be saved.’

And verse 36 says, ‘a man’s enemies will be those of his own household.’

if you’re in a family where your spouse is saved, your parents are saved, your siblings and your children are saved, you should be extremely grateful to God because not everyone has that. Sometimes, taking a stand for Christ or making the decision to become a Christian causes strain in your close relationships. Imagine a situation where a woman becomes a Christian, but her husband is a Muslim. How is that going to work out? Or a child becomes a Christian but their parents are staunch atheists. Or maybe they’re not even atheists, but they just don’t believe in God and they don’t understand why you’ve changed. Why you’re not doing certain things anymore. Why you’re going to church and talking about Jesus all the time. What do you do?

Matthew 10:37 says, ‘He who loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he who loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.’

Jesus gave everything for us. Are we willing to endure anything for Him?

Now, in case you’re one of those lucky people whose whole family is saved. For you it might not be your love for Jesus that’s the issue. Your issue might be doing God’s will, stepping out in faith, following God’s lead. Maybe God has told you to do something, but you know that the people around you, who are fellow Christians, will be against it, or they might not understand why you’re doing it. Could you obey God anyway? Could you do what God says regardless of what anyone thinks?

Matthew 10:38 says, ‘he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me.’

What is your cross? What has serving God cost you? What relationships have been strained as a result of your decision to follow Jesus or step out in faith? God sees, and He appreciates every sacrifice we make in order to put Him first. I want to encourage you to keep carrying that cross, keep putting Him first. In The Physician some crazy things happen as a result of Rebel’s decision to follow Jesus, and I know that’s true for many real people in real life. The Physician is fiction, but the issues are real.

Make sure you get your copy when it comes out. I hope it encourages your faith. I hope it solidifies your resolve to live for Jesus no matter what it’s going to cost you. And I hope it encourages you to take that step of faith that He’s calling you to take.

***

Ciao xx
