After UnderStory, comes UnderCut... September, 2020

Lily Masters wants to be normal, not for the first time in her life, but for the first time for all the right reasons. Born with a defect which caused a lifetime of embarrassment and without support of a loving family, Lily grew up hiding herself, believing she could never be attractive to a potential mate. With Cameron Taylor’s love, devotion, and vow to protect her and her nephew, ten-year-old Kenny, Lily feels loved. Although Cam, biracial and struggling to overcome a life of disparity, says he doesn’t care about her deformity, she wants to present herself to him as a loving wife with a healed body. After terrorists from their past enact their revenge during Lily’s surgery, she and Cam must come to grips with what it truly means to honor and cherish until death parts them.

Now available in electronic format, print coming soon.
