Overview

From the Publisher’s Weekly review of 9/03/2012:
“Kindly Mormon bishop Mitch Hollander, while reorganizing a merger between his steel company and a manufacturer that occurred under perilous circumstances, meets brash and brilliant Cassie St. James, one of Wall Street’s toughest strategists and a former prostitute. Their immediate attraction is just as strong as the gulf between Cassie’s ruthless attitude toward sex and Mitch’s LDS morals, which include no sex outside marriage. Meanwhile, Mitch’s scheming subordinate in the church hierarchy, Greg Sitkaris, whom he’s trying to have arrested for embezzlement, threatens everything Mitch holds dear, including Cassie and Mitch’s flock. Filled with nuanced, unforgettable characters and keen insights into Mormon faith and culture, this is a thrilling, romantic page-turner with a sense of optimism that never comes across as forced or cloying.”

Editorial Reviews

Goodreads - Diana from Washington
Jovan doesn't skimp or take short cuts on anything--her character's backstories, their flaws and failings, their hard-earned triumphs. Her people are soul searchers who never seem to take an easy path. Angst? Well, yes please.

As in her earlier books (The Proviso and Stay), big business, politics, and the church provide a rich landscape for a riveting story that is essentially about people in all their glorious imperfection. People I've truly loved getting to know.

    Highly recommend this book and this author!

    I love how Moriah Jovan has woven religion into "Magdalene." This is a well-written love story that will make you laugh and cry and hold your breath. Moriah Jovan's strong point is her characterization and this book is no different. Within the first chapter, you feel like you know these people, or would like to know them. You care about them and so you care about their circumstances, their story and how they overcome their conflicts so they can realize love.

    Magdalene is made stronger by the weaving of religion and the conflict it creates between these two polar opposite characters. This story isn't about religion, it's about two people, one of whom happens to have strong religious beliefs and principles. You don't have to be Mormon to get this story or to love it, love Mitch and love Cassie, and feel the emotions of the choices they make as they try to find love together.

    I loved this book and couldn't put it down. Moriah Jovan gets better with every book she writes and this one is a winner.
