Abstract:

"Sinsatiable is an insatiable craving for the worldly things in life which feel good, look good, tastes good and bring momentary pleasure, yet, in the end, yields no lasting satisfaction. Twenty-four-year-old Aisha Carlisle has the kind of life most people would envy. She's a college graduate, an excellent dancer, and is the owner of A-Carlisle Studio of Dance and Choreography. She has both beauty and intelligence. Aisha's life is surrounded by great friends and a doting father, not to mention she has a dashing bachelor, Chandler Larson, dangling on her arm and in her heart. With so much going on in her life, Aisha is still rooted and grounded in her Christian faith. Her world revolves around God and her dance studio (in that order of importance). But Aisha's faith is sorely tested when she is confronted with having to relocate her business if she cannot come up with the money to purchase the building that houses it. Relocating is not an option; therefore, Aisha sets a plan into motion to save the one place that has become a safe haven and a dream builder for many of the young girls in the inner-city neighborhood of South Memphis. However, instead of turning to God for help, she chooses to take matters into her own hands. In her hunger to make quick cash, Aisha accepts an offer that she can't refuse from the sultry, sophisticated and intriguing exotic dancer, Elisa Santana. Entering a world that she has only seen in the movies, Aisha is drawn into a secret society comprised of some of the wealthiest men in the world. The cost Aisha pays for turning against her faith is tremendous. Will the faith she so willingly relinquished free her from the sinful life she has chosen? Will her lust for the forbidden ruin her relationship with the man she loves? Is she too deep into corruption for God to pull her out of the trenches?"--Page 4 of cover.
