Three lives cross: a gentle woman, a brutal temptress, and the young man who has their full attention. The result - an insightful story of freedom, power, and purpose.
Jared, a ballroom dance instructor, is finally ready to honestly examine his flirtatious lifestyle, but now he's caught between two women: one who loves him enough to help him question his life's purpose and the other who toys with him for her own profit and amusement.
Christine, alone and middle-aged, struggles to start over, but living past the pain of losing her family will test her faith and put her heart in harm's way by caring about young Jared.
To Tracy, people are merely tools to get what she wants - and what this sensuous, manipulative woman wants is complete control over Jared.

I was pleasantly surprised at how well this story was put together, three very different characters intertwined in such a way you won't want the story to end. This book has everything, mystery, grief, romance, jealously, it caters to all genre's. I highly recommend!
Let Me Lead touches on common battles that we all face at different points in our lives. . . . . Grief associated with loosing those we love; past transgressions; right versus wrong; standing up for what is right versus letting it go; etc. Battles that would be made so much easier if we just let Him lead.
