The Guilt TripPaperback - 2012
The second installment of the Jamieson Legacy Series, The Guilt Trip, is the story of Aaron "Ace" Jamieson. Ace is living a carefree life. He's good-looking, respectable when he's in the mood, but his weakness is women. When a woman tries to ambush him with a pregnancy, he takes off in the other direction. Responsibility as an option is something he learned from his absentee father.
Talise Rogers has a bright future ahead of her. She's pretty and has no problem catching a man's eye, which is exactly what she does with Ace. Their chemistry is undeniable and their passion explosive. Trapping Ace is the furthest thing from Talise's mind, when she learns she is pregnant. She is determined to be a good parent.
When Ace rejects her she lets him know, " I want nothing from you Ace, not even your name," and she means it. But Ace's big brother and cousins don't plan to let the child who represents the twelfth generation descendant of a royal African tribe leave the fold. Whether Ace decides to accept his responsibility or not, his family embraces Talise and baby.
As for Ace, they turn him over to the LORD. How long will he be able to endure the guilt trip he's experiencing because of his choices? What will it take for him to accept responsibility and turn from the going down the same path his father took?
