At 25, Issy is already a mother of three. She has a weakness for a pretty face but now believes that handsome men are not reliable. She’s prepared to give up good looks for security and turns to God and the church for help. When Lukan, 22, walks into her life with his very pretty face, she tells him she’s not interested. He’s too much like Easton, her last lover who’s now living in a rum bottle, shattered by the death of their youngest child. She tells Lukan he’s too young, too handsome, and hasn’t even begun to sow his wild oats yet. But Issy is just the kind of woman Lukan is looking for to help take him to the next level of success. He’s prepared to do anything to get her, including joining the church and leaving his childhood love and baby mother, Jez. When he proposes, Issy believes that God has answered her prayers and they quickly marry. Within the euphoria of Jamaica’s independence, they begin to build a family and a business. But God has nothing to do with Jez’s wrath and the hold she still has over Lukan. Despite his happy home, his success and his mother’s warnings, Lukan finds himself drawn back to Jez, with devastating consequences for Issy and their children... Betrayed is a love triangle that takes the reader to two different locations and eras – beginning in the late 1950s in Jamaica and ending in Birmingham, England, in the late 1970s. It has been inspired by Colin Channer, Barbara Taylor Bradford, Kei Miller and Eric Jerome Dickie, and will appeal to fans of adult romance fiction.
