When Love Deceives ...Delilah by Shelia M. Goss

If You By Guest Blogger Shelia M Goss

The Delilah When Love Deceives tour makes a stop on Peggy Eldridge-Love's blog. Besides writing fiction, I write poetry every blue moon. If my character Delilah would write a poem, she would tell you not to follow in her footsteps.

If You

by Shelia M. Goss

IF You followed In my Footsteps,

Then You will know, I did not always Know

The right way to Go.

I made some Mistakes

Along the way. Learning how to Live

Day by Day.

So don’t follow in my Footsteps,

Don’t make the same Mistakes.

Know that there is a better road to Take.

IF You followed in my Footsteps,

Then you will See, My life was not always as easy as it Seemed.

Sometimes I struggled, But I made it Through.

With Faith and Guidance, so can You.

What readers are saying about Delilah:

"Many stories that include preachers are over-the-top, but the author's creative nature blends this topic along with deceit and betrayal into the story, making it just right." ~ Review by Teresa Beasley-APOOO Book Club

"The book was highly entertaining, yet never lost sight of the Christian message. I recommend Delilah to those who love Christian fiction and to all readers who enjoy great writing and storyline."
--Angelia Menchan, Author and Avid Reader

"Delilah is a good read even for those who are not regular readers of urban or Christian fiction." ~ TaKeshia Brooks-AAMBC Reviewer

More about Delilah:

Behind every successful man is a good woman. The downfall of a good man is a woman up to no good.

Thirty and fine, Samson Judges is preacher of the Peaceful Rest Missionary Baptist Church . He’s beloved by his congregation, but temptation is about to strike in the form of divalicious beauty Delilah, and only the Good Lord knows if Samson will be able to keep his head on straight with her. Especially considering he’s about to be married to Julia Rivers. Julia helped shape Samson into the man he is, but Delilah wants to knock him down. He doesn’t know she’s been hired to distract him by real estate developer William Trusts, who wants to acquire the land where Samson’s church stands.... Samson feels like his relationship with God puts him above it all, but his weakness for Delilah may just cause him to lose everything. ~ Black Expressions Book Club
