Lukewarm Saint takes you into the life of Kevin Watkins, a handsome Brooklyn Educator who happens to be a strong ladies man. But what is he to do when torn between what he wants and the reoccurring feelings of guilt?

Kevin’s best friends are polar opposites: one, a born-again Christian, and the other, the owner of a gentleman’s club. Both men want Kevin to lean towards their contrasting ways of thinking. Kevin’s mother and grandmother try their best to steer him clear of his womanizing legacy – a legacy left behind by his father and grandfather.

What will he decide to do? What will it take for Kevin to make a decision? How long can a person tempt the Lord before the Lord decides to say, “Enough”? Lukewarm Saint will answer those questions and many, many more.

Joey Pinkney: Where did you get the inspiration to write Lukewarm Saint?

K. L. Belvin: I created Lukewarm Saint to ask readers to consider where is that line drawn when making an important decision about the way they enter into and exit out of interpersonal relationship involving romance and lust. Whether you believe in God or not, there is a point in our lives when we make some critical decisions or the choices will be made for us. Continue reading 5 Minutes, 5 Questions With… K. L.

Four women have two things in common. They’re all mothers, and the father of their children is the same man.

Although Emmanuel does everything he can to provide for his own household, and four others, it’s just not enough to keep the mothers of his children from just scraping by.

Xavari convinces Denise, Angela and Romina that the four of them must pick up the slack where Emmanuel is unable.

One man + Four women + many children = The Pride.

Don’t get it wrong, though. Emmanual takes care of all his children, and the women in his life aren’t disillusioned about their relationships with him.

When Xavari gets pregnant again, she decides that it’s time to change the paradigm. She can struggle alone with two babies, or she can team up with some unlikely allies. She puts her plan into action, and she and her partners in “crime” use their resources (human and otherwise) to build their own little community.

Things are a little bumpy to begin with, but everything eventually smooths out, only to go hay-wire yet again. Will they be able to get back on track? You’ll have to read the book to find out!
