How can I survive this game of cat and mouse?
I don’t know who to trust. There are so many lies. I see now I can’t trust the people closest to me—my father, my mother, the McCalls, and sadly Davian.
Davian would do anything to keep me safe, but is it for love or his own personal gain.
Rui Salko will stop at nothing to get what he wants, and he will kill anyone who gets in his way, and I fear that includes me.
I just pray that leaving Davian won’t be the biggest mistake I ever make.
The story between Davian Cross and Reyna McCall continues with Book Three of the Sinful Pleasures series. The Perfect Lie is a continuation of the Perfect Wife and The Perfect Escape. It is recommended that the series be read in order beginning with The Perfect Wife.

First Love: The first book in “The Love of a Good Woman” Series
If you just can’t resist the drama of a love triangle…
If you need a second-chance romance about love and family…
You’ll love these sweet, provocative Christian romance novels, by Momi Robins
Paige is just a sweet girl; the girl next door from a small hometown on O’ahu, in Hawaii. Like all little girls, what she wanted was simple; she wanted to be loved and adored, happy and carefree. But at the ripe age of five, she already learned that life was nothing but, simple or carefree.
While some girls dreamed of the beautiful wedding, the handsome and loving husband, the white-picket fence, two-point-five children, and God-ordained kind-of-love, Paige wanted nothing of the sort.
Her parents’ abusive relationship was motivation to avoid love at all costs. She vowed that she wouldn’t become like her weak and submissive mother, who couldn’t stand up for herself. She vowed she’d never take the risk of loving a man like her abusive father, who touted apologies and empty promises.
From the day Lance, the new boy, stepped foot into her middle school classroom, his adoration for Paige was evident, but to everyone else except her. No matter how many obvious cues he dispatched over the years, she remained steadfast against love and romance, laser focused on her professional goals, refusing to acknowledge his advances.
When one of her parent’s many vicious fights leaves her mom, hospitalized, battered and bruised, Paige lets her guard down, allowing Jason’s opportune advance, leaving her life’s plans thwarted by one careless night on a white sandy beach, under a full moon. Paige is pushed on a path to a decade-long love triangle that causes her to doubt everything she’d ever believed.
A traffic jam after a salon appointment to freeze fat cells from her thighs incites the reluctant trip down memory lane; inspiration to see her life through new lenses.
Can Paige have a God-ordained kind-of-love?
Is there such a thing?

About the Author
Aloha! My name is Momi Robins-Makaila. I am a native Hawaiian woman, mother, and teacher. I was born and raised in Wai’anae, Oahu in Hawaii. I have more than 22 years of experience teaching public school as a middle school special education, autism, and middle school math teacher in Hawaii (20 years) and in Chandler, Arizona (2 years).
In 1991, I graduated high school (yes, that long ago) from The Kamehameha Schools, the most prestigious and wealthiest Hawaiian school in the nation. It was at Kamehameha that I learned of my obligation to contribute to the world as a Native-Hawaiian, American, living in what seemed a double-bind situation, in two incompatible worlds—the Western world and the Native-Hawaiian world, feeling like two people in one person. I have sought to understand this meaning for me, my entire life.
My post-high education includes a bachelor’s degree in Sociology from the University of Hawaii at West O’ahu, a Master’s degree in teaching with a focus in Special Education, from Gonzaga University, and a second Master’s degree in Christian Leadership and Pastoral Care from Grand Canyon University. I’ve also run my own construction and trucking business and have experience in real estate and magazine publishing.
Having taught middle school for nearly all of my career, being a mother of three children, and three step-children, I have had the honor and privilege of learning intimately the struggles children and teenagers face every day of their lives in this ever-changing, beautiful but often cruel world. My stories are inspired by my children and students.
In Hawaiian, Momilani (my full Hawaiian name) means heavenly pearl. I never much liked my name. The kids at school teased me ‘Momi-lomi’. Of the beautiful Hawaiian names, there are to be had, I couldn’t understand why my Grandmother would punish my mother, who then punished me. Ironically, both my daughters have that name. I began to love my name once I learned how pearls are formed.
A pearl begins to form when a parasite or something foreign lodges its way into an oyster’s inner body. With no way to rid itself of the intruder, the oyster begins to excrete a substance called calcium carbonate; this is the oyster’s defense mechanism–the way it protects itself. Over time, the calcium carbonate creates a beautiful barrier around the intruder. From the discomfort, comes the pearl–beautiful, rare, fine, and valuable.
My books aim to be rich stories of meaning and purpose, to embolden our children to cultivate emotional power, be contemplative, reflective, and make informed decisions. For those who cannot relate to specific experiences, I hope for them to understand and find compassion for others, whose stories differ from their own.
I hope that readers of my books will see the pearls in themselves and the pearls in others.
