Jaded, by V.V. Denman
Christian Contemporary Romance – 87,000 words
Having been shunned by the local church, Ruthie Turner’s heart is as hard as the dry west Texas soil. When the new preacher, Dodd Cunningham, repeatedly asks her out, Ruthie avoids him, but the longer Dodd interacts with the community, the more Ruthie’s small-town world crumbles. Will she learn to forgive, even when stones are being thrown?
Jaded is a love story, not only between a man and woman, but also between the church and the lost.
