Hot New Release: The Keepers by Monique O'Connor James

Jess denies God.  In his infinite wisdom, he’s taken everyone she’s ever loved. Moving to the French Quarter was a ploy to erase the guilt she felt for rebuking her faith.  Perhaps, if she hadn’t met Justin, an angel preoccupied with getting back into God’s good graces, and drowning in his hatred for humanity, her plan would have worked.

Justin’s general disdain for the human race makes him difficult to like, but some higher power has appointed him her keeper.  Justin’s convinced he can mend her broken relationship with her maker, but in the process he learns a thing or two about his own humanity.

Never mind falling in love, that’s not supposed to happen.  In fact, it may even be forbidden. Jess just wants Justin to understand her plight, and he wants to protect her from a world she doesn’t know.

If neither are equipped to save the other, then whose soul will live and whose will perish?

At last check, this awesome new release was at #11 on the amazon YA list and #1 on the Hot New Releases.  CONGRATS, MONIQUE!  This book isn't specifically geared for YA, so if you enjoy a good story about good vs evil, you'll love this one!

  1. If you've ever wondered how much you can lose, and where God is when your life seems to be going wrong...if you've ever wondered about the coincidental meetings in your life...or if you struggle to make sense of the does the heroine of this story. Monique shows us the worlds of the fallen, the regretful, the well as the rising up and the overcoming.
