“After studying the Song of Solomon, I’m convinced the God who created passion and intimacy did so to mirror the intensity of His own love for mankind. I want to use romantic passion to teach people God’s precepts and therein, His love. It’s the cry of my heart, and I hope and pray that for my readers, my stories of romantic passion translate into passion for God.”
