Pat Simmons’ Every Woman Needs a Praying Man
​Ms. Simmons has a new release this month!

The Blurb: Unlike firefighters who run into danger, instincts tell businessman Tyson Graham to head the other way as fast as he can when he meets a certain damsel in distress. Days later, the same woman struts through his door for a job interview. Monica Wyatt might possess the outwardly beauty and the brains on paper, but Tyson doesn’t trust her to work for his firm, or maybe he doesn’t trust his heart around her.
