(From the publisher):
Twenty-one-year-old Patterson Haney has always dreamed of leaving her small Georgia town, moving to New York City and becoming a model. She's been blessed with the looks and the spirit to succeed, and she knows that God will guide her every step in the competitive profession. But when she meets smooth-talking, gorgeous Miller Baisden, it's her personal life that poses the greatest challenge: Patterson is torn between the powerful attraction Miller awakens in her, and her desire to maintain her morals.
Pampered native New Yorker Macy Baldwin has taken a lot for granted, including her wealthy parents' financial support — until they cut her off for flunking out of college. Pretty and fashionable, Macy decides to pursue modeling. If things don't work out, she can always fall back on her plan of finding a rich husband. And when she discovers that a handsome, widowed stockbroker needs a nanny for his little girl, Macy is sure her erratic prayers have been answered. But when she finds herself actually working for a living, she realizes God works in mysterious ways….
Born with the striking features and statuesque height of a true Nubian queen, social worker LaRue Arnette has often been mistaken for a model. But when she surprises her Baptist minister father and devout mother by quitting her job and leaving California to give modeling a try, she can't help but wonder — is she fleeing from her true calling? A certain tenderhearted reverend may be the one to lead her to the answer that's always been in her heart.
