Head fashion designer Aryanna 'Raya' Joseph has had her own share of hard knocks out of life and love.  Her father wanted her to design clothes his way, so she finally decided to move on in search of a place where she could use her creativity.  Off to New York and grandmother's house it is!  Garments of Praise is a perfect fit, but the business is in desperate need of money to keep it afloat. 


When Raya's fiance' left her at the altar, minus her virginity and her pride, Megan was the woman who had stolen him away.  Now Megan is at the designer's doorstep begging Raya to design a dress for her, which would mean a much-needed lucrative sale for the business.  But can Raya put aside her heartache and hard feelings to pull it off?

 

Personal trainer Fletcher 'Flex' Dunham looks like he stepped off the cover of GQ, and his good looks have women falling over themselves to catch his eye and his heart.  When he saw the pretty-in-pink woman on the train, Flex knew she was different than any woman he'd ever known. 

 

Circumstances keep throwing the two together, and each struggles against their growing feelings for the other person.  Having sworn a vow to celibacy, Flex wonders if she could spell trouble for him, especially since Raya has sworn off men.  Does God have other plans for these two unlikely candidates for love?  Can their mutual love for an AIDS orphan bring them together?

 

Marilynn Griffith brings inspirational fans her second novel, PINK.  Flawed characters with actual pasts make the story believable, and the issues they are dealing with add interest to keep the reader turning the pages.  Both Raya's and Flex's stories are somewhat complicated, with both having been burned by love in various ways and making them hesitant to try their hands at it again.  The moral of the story is that anything is possible with God, no matter how hard we might fight it.  This first book in the SHADES OF STYLE series will soon be followed by the second, JADE, featuring the story of Lily, coming in May, 2006.
