The “Lust of the Eyes” is one of the three areas of temptation spoken of in I John 2:16 that has gotten man into trouble from the beginning of time. Sierra Lloyd is a young Christian girl who is exceedingly blessed! A promising career, an affluent lifestyle and pure independence are some of the blessings for which she is most grateful.
Sierra is actually very content with her life until temptation in the form of her best friend’s hot fiancé, Taj Brooks, comes knocking on her door. The man is full of ego with a devilish personality and amazingly good looks.
It’s not long before Sierra is completely taken by Taj, but her Christian morals won’t let her betray her best friend. Taj, on the other hand, has no qualms about making it hard for Sierra to resist him and he thoroughly enjoys the chase!
Sierra soon finds herself involved in confusion, lies and most of all…a love triangle she never anticipated! Feeling hopeless, she is soon being consoled by her boss’ son, Reuben Bradshaw, who has secretly desired her for years.
As secrets about Taj’s character come to light and Sierra’s guilt eats at her from the inside out, she’s torn between trying to walk away from the passion she feels for Taj and walking into the safe and welcoming arms of her Christian faith.
“Lust of the Eyes” by H. H. Fowler is the first novella in a drama-drenched, three-part series.
