Here's the blurb for her latest release:
Devotion by Marianne Evans 
From This Day Forward
Christian Music agent Kellen Rossiter has everything he ever wanted: A-list clients from coast to coast, a loving wife who honors and respects him, and a faith life that’s never wavered—until now.

Juliet Rossiter has the perfect life: a rewarding schedule serving the underprivileged, a husband who loves her as Christ loved the church, and a blessed future as a mother—at least that's what she thinks.

For Better or Worse
But what happens when their rock-solid marriage begins to crumble under the weight of an unexpected and powerful temptation? How does love survive when its foundation is shaken?

'Til Death Do Us Part
When human frailty and the allure of sin deal a harsh blow to their relationship, it will take more than love to mend the shattered trust and heartbreak. It will take a lifetime of devotion.

Now A Taste of Marianne:

“I can’t find a way to ask you to stay put and listen to me. There’s so much I want to say, but you won’t hear a word of it. I’m trapped. I wish I could help you see, and understand that I know I’ve made the biggest mistake of my life. I know all of this in my heart, but I can’t make you see it.”

The words were spoken in a tender way. She sensed his regret, but his tone held a layer of challenge as well. She retained just enough strength to answer him back. “Let me ask you something. Do you regret betraying our marriage, or do you regret getting caught in the act?”

Kellen’s shoulders bent and his eyes flickered when he paused and shook his head. “No matter what I say, you won’t believe me. No matter what I do, it’ll be wrong.”

He had aged a decade in mere minutes. Lifting her chin, refusing to feel even the slightest degree of empathy, Juliet gathered herself once again. She tried to brush past him but for a second time Kellen stood in the way. She watched him start to reach out again, this time as if wanting to take hold of her arm. When she stepped back, he gritted his teeth and dropped his hand to his side.

“I’m going to ask you—with all that I am—please don’t leave our home.”

Weighted by firm conviction, Kellen’s words fell through her heart but found no room to settle.

  1. Pleasure to have you here today, Marianne. I have long been a fan and I feel sure Devotion will be a runaway success!

  2. Megan my dear friend, thank you so much for hostessing me at your blog today! You're a treasure. :-) I hope Devotion touches hearts, and affirms the beauty and love of marriage!

  3. Sounds good, Marianne. Adultery? That's one thing I'm not sure I could forgive & forget. Know a friend that did but....not sure I'm wired that way.

  4. This sounds like a story every married couple should read.

  5. I am a firm believer that you can be completely in love with your spouse and still not be able to fight the unexpected temptations that can come your way. Sometimes you can't help what you feel. The point is whether you are strong enough to resist or not. I think sometimes love and devotion are still not enough.
    This sounds like a thought provoking read.

  6. MomJane - that's my hope and prayer! No one, not even devout believers, are immune from Satan's push and pull! So glad you dropped by - thanks for the visit!!

    HK, your words are SO true, and strike at the very heart of what Devotion is all about! I hope you have a chance to read it - there's a companion website - where we gather to discuss all matters related to Christian marriage! Check out the "posts" section - it's a new site, but it's growing! :-) Blessings!

  7. A story that will move me. The struggle is ever present.


  8. In this past year I have come to truly enjoy inspirational stories. Devotion certainly has a powerful plot and will be very interesting to see how the husband and wife overcome this trial.
    Congratulations on all your magnificent awards, Marianne. I know you are very happy to have won them. I wish you all the very best.

  9. Mary - thank you so much! That's my most fervent hope! :-)

    Sarah, thank you! I pray you enjoy Devotion! And, the awards are great, but it's all about serving God, and I only look at the awards as an added means by which to reach people, and hopefully have my story touch more hearts! Blessings!!
