It's the world's oldest story: A girl, her fireman, and her other fireman.When Lea heads off to Atlanta for a job interview, all she's thinking about is the work. Well, and Sean, her best friend's brother. Sean, the tall, muscular firefighter. With the gentle Southern drawl and the wicked smile. Whose couch she's going to be sleeping on.Well, actually, whose couch she hopes very much she won't be sleeping on. But it turns out that Andy, Sean's roommate, is another, equally hot Southern firefighter, and so when a visitor - or perhaps two - joins Lea on that couch, it sparks a series of events that none of them could possibly have foreseen.But that none of them regrets. Not even a little bit.This collection contains all seven installments in The Visitor Saga -plus the wild sequel!The VisitorThe Visitor Comes HomeThe Visitor Comes AgainThe Visitor Goes to WorkThe Visitor EntertainsThe Visitor Takes a TripThe Visitor Has CompanyBonus - The Visitor's Wedding: GoddessPreview (from "The Visitor"):When she walked back up the stairs to the apartment a couple of hours later, she had in one hand an enormous bag full of barbecue chicken from the same joint she'd had lunch at, with orders of fried okra and corn bread. In the other hand, she swung a bottle of Maker's Mark, with which she knocked on the door.Just like the day before, a muffled voice called out, "C'me in! It's unlocked.""Can't!" she called back. "Hands full!""Hold on," said a slightly closer voice, and the door swung open, revealing Sean, who was still wearing nothing but low-slung pajama bottoms.Andy was sitting at the kitchen table, identically dressed."Haven't you guys even gotten dressed all day?" Lea laughed and gave Sean a sound kiss on the lips.He looked astonished, but Andy scowled."None of that!" burbled Lea, dancing into the kitchen and giving him an equally sound smooch. That seemed to cheer him up. "Tonight, we're celebrating!" She held up the barbecue and the bourbon.They were happy to go along with this plan, and were soon all stuffed and pleasantly buzzed. Between the warmth, the Southern humidity, the food, and the alcohol, Lea was getting sweaty, but she couldn't have cared less. She was hoping to get a whole lot sweatier. Now which of you was my mystery man last night, she found herself wondering as she took off her jacket and tossed it in the general direction of the pullout. And am I going to get him to f-k me again, or am I going to try out the other one. Or...She looked back at the two men, whiskey-wild thoughts bouncing through her head.TheyShow more

As Christians, we have a hope that withstands all trouble. In fact, while many strive to avoid suffering, believers can actually rejoice in it. Why? Because God will vindicate his people. We can rest in God's salvation now and look forward to the day he will bring full redemption. This letter, written by the apostle Peter points us to Christ in times of tribulation and encourages us to persevere in the midst of suffering. Listen to Peter as he illustrates the hope that comes with remembering the death and resurrection of Christ.Show more
Hebrews is about persevering in the faith. Written concerning the Jewish Christians, this letter serves as a reminder that Christ is superior to priests, angels, and the old covenant laws. His sacrifice is once for all unlike the sacrificial system. While Jewish Christians have been less focused on growing in godliness, this letter encourages them to "lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus" (Heb. 12:1-2) Listen to the hope this book offers and the encouragement it gives about times of suffering.Show more
Like many of us, the Thessalonians need to be reminded of the reality of Christ's second coming. In this book, Paul encourages believers to look forward to the second coming as the final accomplishment of God's promise to save his people. In light of the Thessalonians' false sense of security, Paul only addresses the timing of the second coming by saying, "the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night." (1 Thes. 5:2) With this in mind, we must all live in a way that is pleasing to the Lord, keeping Christ as the center of our lives as we await his return.Show more
While there is suffering, evil, sickness, and death in this world, the book of Joel reminds us that we have an everlasting hope through it all. Joel warns the people of Judah as a horrifying locust plague has come upon them. He urges the people to repent and return to God, predicting that this is just the beginning of their judgment. Thankfully, Joel's prophecies do not end there. He continues to teach the people about the promise of hope that lies ahead in the kingdom of the Messiah. Listen as this prophet describes the day of salvation which we are privileged to live in now.Show more
After Jesus rose from the dead, he gave his Spirit to dwell within all who believe in him. The Holy Spirit is our Counselor, leading, instructing, and equipping us. A sequel to the Gospel of Luke, this book gives a history of the early church and provides a heavy emphasis on the work of the Holy Spirit. In many ways, Acts serves as a transition from law-keeping to grace and faith in Christ. Listen to Acts and learn about how God uses the Holy Spirit to transform the hearts of believers and then uses them to fulfill his plan of restoration.Show more
After finding out that the Corinthian church was filled with pride and committing sexual immorality, Paul teaches believers about the dangers of abusing freedom. The real problem is that the believers have a misunderstanding of grace. The Corinthian church was basing its faith on cheap grace. Cheap grace is grace without the cross, grace without repentance, and grace without cost. Listen to Paul as he tells believers about Christ who has given us grace as forgiveness for our sins but also as power to flee from our old ways.Show more
