A burned-out pop diva runs away from fame and falls in love with a handsome Roman Catholic priest, who allows her to hide from the world inside a Church rectory in an idyllic small town known as the real-life Mayberry.
Grace Stevens has it all. Beauty. Fame. Money. But, at only twenty-seven, all has become too much. Grace has become a prisoner to her own fame. She’s tired of the crazy tour schedule, the intrusive fans, the paparazzi hounding her, and her sleezy business manager, Kip Darby, controlling her. She yearns for a normal life. And she wants to find love, true love.
Danny O’Connor is a thirty-one-year-old Roman Catholic priest and a combat veteran of the Afghan War. He suffers from severe PTSD. Danny made a battlefield promise to God that if He got him safely home from war, he’d become a priest. Danny reluctantly agrees to allow Grace to hide from the public inside of the St. Mary’s Church rectory, where she takes up residence with him. What he didn’t count on, though, was falling for her. Now, he’s confronted with the ultimate choice—will he choose God or the girl? Will he break his vow of celibacy in the heat of passion or abide by his commitment to the Church?
Just Grace and Danny is a story about brokenness. And the power of love to mend that brokenness. And, in the process, transform lives. It will get into your laughter, you heart, your soul. And maybe even a little into your tears.
