not all sins can be buried in the past - The Touch of Betrayal: a SIN & HONEY novella by Taryn Scarlett

18+ For fans of Anita Diamant’s The Red Tent comes the second novella in the scintillating SIN & HONEY series featuring the Bible’s most powerful and seductive women…


So Delilah said to Samson, “Tell me the secret of your great strength.”—Judges 16:6 
Delilah would do anything to escape her past.
Falling for Samson only got in the way.

Taryn Scarlett’s lush reimagining of Samson and Delilah uncovers the hidden truth behind the girl who became the most infamous seductress in history. 

Delilah has come to the quiet valley of Sorek to start a new life, but when a man blackmails her with a devastating secret, she learns that not all sins can be buried in the past. In a dangerous bargain for her freedom, she agrees to seduce Samson, a notorious killer threatening the region—and if she can’t uncover the secret to his strength, she’ll forfeit her life

But Samson is different than any man she has ever met before: godlike in his strength but guarding a passionate vulnerability that draws Delilah to him. Will she betray the man she has begun to fall for—or will she betray her own heart for freedom?

So Jacob served seven years, and they seemed to him but a few days because of the love he had for her. —Gen.29.20

Rachel was destined to love at first sight.
Leah’s only crime was falling for the wrong man.

Taryn Scarlett’s richly lyrical novella reimagines the classic story of sisters Rachel and Leah, torn apart over the same man. Or so history would have you think.

While Rachel has sworn her love to Jacob, Leah has in fact been carrying on a scintillating affair with a foreigner whom she is forbidden to love. When Rachel discovers Leah’s dark secret, the sisters’ faith and friendship are put to the ultimate test, especially when Rachel is given an impossible choice: in order to save Leah’s life, she must give up Jacob forever.
Book#1 is FREE for limited time

I loved all kinds of stories, but especially the ones with hints of darkness. I remember being so scared reading The Three Little Pigs that I had to run downstairs and hide my copy in the drawer beneath my parents' bed...only to dig it up a few weeks later because I wanted the feeling of being scared again. It thrilled me. (No wonder I'm such a fan of the psychological thriller today!) (Read more HERE)
