Do you believe in SoulMates, the perfect match made in heaven? If so, you will absolutely  love this romantic, exciting, and insightful story about forgiveness, reconciliation, and redemption. Like Puppy Love with a vicious bite.


April Curtis is a beautiful, witty, and intelligent saint. As co-owner of Market Smart, she is doing quite well career-wise. Unfortunately, despite her wonderful relationship with Jesus Christ, her personal life is another story. A sad story. For after the betrayal by her childhood boyfriend, her relationship with her mother is troubled, and her love-life is non-existent.

   That is, until she attends a Halloween bash as She-Devil, meets Blackman, and gets more than she bargained for. Overwhelmed by his charm and his good looks, she unwittingly becomes involved in a seductive game she has no courage to finish.

  But Blackman has no intention of going out bad. He will finish what was started. Even if doing so forces them to confront the past. A painful past.

About the author

When he was only seventeen, Willie Benton was convicted of two counts of Malice Murder. Even though he had narrowly escaped the death sentence, his young life still should have practically been over. Lost to the prison system. Except God had other plans for him and his life.

   While his first few years were spent in some of Georgia's worst prisons, Benton entered the system armed with a GED, an incredible focus on freedom, and a strong desire to become a positive and productive citizen. Therefore, while others were engaged with drugs, gambling, stealing, fighting, and homosexual activities, Benton focused on education day and night. Educated vocationally, collegically, mentally, physically, and spiritually.

   Combining his education with his God-given talents and gifts, Benton has not only written several poems, short stories, skits, booklets, and novels; but he also strategically managed the start-up of a publishing company, QueenZ Courtesy Press. A moving tribute to the strong, supportive women in his life.
