Dare Not Desire (Paperback)
What do you do when God redirects the path you envisioned for your life? Would you dwell in despondency or desire again? And if you have an intimate relationship with God, do you dare not desire? David Mann is Cleveland's newest quarterback, and a sorry pick at that. After a sidelining injury ruined his promising career, he's become a joke of the press. Now he must face the fact that his head's a mess, his simmering anger explodes too often, and his days of playing just might be over. Isolated, desperate, and with football no longer his savior, what desires could a new Savior possibly provide for his life? Sports manager Katherine Luka is tasked to rebuild David's image, yet she's struggling herself to move beyond the tragedy that derailed her life. Left questioning God and her willingness to obey His voice, does she trust He works all things for the good of those who love Him? In Shenlee Luketic's contemporary Christian romance, Dare Not Desire, David and Katherine's lives intertwine as they are forced to face old wounds and new insecurities. They each are challenged to strive for a renewed life while navigating conflicting emotions in transforming their anguished pasts and discerning their developing relationship. By turns witty and romantic, other times heart-wrenching, Luketic's moving novel hints that, as Christians, we must strive to live in the image of Christ, especially in a world that seemingly doesn't believe in Him.
