#FeatureFriday- A Lover’s Hate by AlTonya Washington


Available in ebook and paperback


Smoak Tesano and Sabra Ramsey have tried to avoid one another since that fateful afternoon when their relationship- when their love was shattered by an unforgivable act. Smoak vowed to maintain his distance but has come to realize that Sabra’s in too much trouble to allow for that. The mere thought of Smoak rattles Sabra far more than she’ll ever admit. She knows that his presence will stir cravings that will pose dangers to her sanity. Avoidance is not an option. Family responsibilities make that impossible. Meanwhile, forgotten demons threaten the new rays of happiness and contentment the Ramseys and Tesanos now enjoy. These demons are hungry, They are restless. They seek vengeance, mean to have it and will use the innocent to lure the guilty.
