Sometimes a scandal isn’t a sin…
On the night she graduates from seminary, Jordan Sykes finds herself in bed with Dominic Lawrence, the ethics professor she’s crushed on for years. Two months later, she discovers she’s pregnant and is determined to hide it to protect his career. Maybe, if she loves her new church like hell, they won’t fire her for being a single mother.
Dominic knows the difference between right and wrong, and he’s filled with remorse after sleeping with his favorite student. He’s offered the job of his dreams, but he'd be a hypocrite to accept without making things right with Jordan first.
Dominic proposes marriage to save their careers, never expecting they will prove a perfect—and passionate—match. But can Jordan give her heart to a man who still believes the first night they spent together was a mistake?
Jordan Sykes has had a crush on Dr. Dominic Lawrence for as long as she can remember. He’s gorgeous, strict and just a tab bit stuffy – and as a Professor of Christian Ethics and her academic advisor – he’s also off limits.
So on the night that she graduates from seminary, she finally lets her feelings be known. The one night that they share is everything that she could have dreamed of and she won’t be able to forget it any time soon.
She never imagined that she would be an unmarried mother-to-be but she’s totally up for the challenge. If she can just keep her secret under wraps…
Yes, admittedly she’d let her curiosity about him slide into the realm of sexual fantasy. But she’d only allowed her imagination free rein because flying pigs would usher in hell’s first ice age before anything ever happened between them. For one thing, R-I-G-I-D. And for another, he was major league to her t-ball, Mr. Designer Suit to Ms. Comfy Sweater.
They don’t call Dominic Lawrence “Saint Ambitious” for nothing. He’s the man the church calls upon when ethics are in question and he’s strictly by the book. Jordan has always been the one weak link in his armor and their one night together still haunts him months later. Now thrown together under very unexpected circumstances, can she convince him to forget about the past and take a chance on the future?
Amber Belldene is a romance anomaly. Her books always follow a truly inspirational theme without being even slightly sanctimonious or critical. Her characters are refreshingly real and her storylines are surprisingly steamy!
Not a Mistake is another classic example of her feel-good style and it makes for one fabulously sultry evening read…

About The Author -
Amber Belldene is always reading racy books at the most inappropriate times, and has been observed ogling her Kindle in the church parking lot. Even as a kid, she hid novels inside the service bulletin to read during sermons, an irony that is not lost on her when she preaches these days. Amber is a romance writer and Episcopal priest who believes sexuality is vital to spirituality, love is beautifully messy, and stories are the best way to explore human truths. Evidence of these convictions can be found in Amber's steamy paranormals and quirky, hot contemporaries, which have been published by Omnific, Entangled, and Lyrical/Kensington. She lives with her husband and two children in San Francisco and can be found at amberbelldene.com.
