The Jamieson Legacy
If you love history? You won’t be disappointed as American Black history and genealogy are weaved into the romances. The series tackles cultural issues with godly intervention, whether it's abortion, single parenting, or our angry youth. The Jamieson men are tenth and eleventh generation descendants of a royal African tribe. They carry the strength and determination in their DNA when it comes to family ties. The only ones who can penetrate their armor are strong-willed women that God puts in their paths.
When do you know the most important decision of your life is the right one?
Reaping the seeds from what she's sown; Cheney Reynolds moves into a historic neighborhood in Ferguson, Missouri, and becomes reclusive.
Her first neighbor, the incomparable Mrs. Beatrice Tilley Beacon aka Grandma BB, is an opinionated childless widow. Grandma BB is a self-proclaimed expert on topics Cheney isn’t seeking advice—everything from landscaping to hip-hop dancing to romance.
Then there is Parke Kokumuo Jamison VI, a direct descendant of a royal African tribe. He learned his family ancestry, African history, and lineage preservation before he could count.
Unwittingly, they are drawn to each other, but it takes Christ to weave their lives into a spiritual bliss while He exonerates their past indiscretions.
One man, one woman, one God, and one big problem.
Malcolm Jamieson wasn’t the man who got away, but the man God instructed Hallison Dinkins to set free. Instead of their explosive love affair leading them to the wedding altar, God diverted Hallison to the prayer altar during her first visit back to church in years.
Malcolm was convinced that his woman had lost her mind to break off their engagement. Didn’t Hallison know that Malcolm, a tenth generation descendant of a royal African tribe, couldn’t be replaced? Once Malcolm concedes that their relationship can’t be salvaged, he issues Hallison his own edict, “If we’re meant to be with each other, we’ll find our way back. If not, that means that there’s a love stronger than what we had.”
His words begin to haunt Hallison until she begins to regret their break up, and that’s where their story begins. Someone has to retreat, and God never loses a battle.
Cheney Reynolds Jamieson made a choice years ago that is now shaping her future and the future of the men she loves. A botched abortion left her unable to carry a baby to term, and her husband, Parke K. Jamison VI, is expected to produce heirs. With a wife who cannot give him a child, Parke vows to find and get custody of his illegitimate son by any means necessary. Meanwhile, Cheney’s twin brother, Rainey, struggles with his anger over his ex-girlfriend’s actions that haunt him, and their father, Dr. Roland Reynolds, fights to keep an old secret in the past.
Boston bad boy Kevin "Kidd" Jamieson has a gripe with his father who dared to insist that his two illegitimate sons carry his last name. To add insult to injury, the man never bothered to stick around to provide love and guidance as his boys matured into men. Kidd's anger overflows into every area of his life. As his animosity festers, Kidd becomes a roaring lion, seeking whatever and whomever he can devour. He's as gritty as his cousin in St. Louis, Parke Jamieson VI, is polished. The two strong-willed men clash when Kidd relocates to St. Louis where his cousin assures him it's a land of milk and money in job opportunities. Where he lands a position is far from a Promised Land.
Through a series of events that involve Grandma BB, her dog named Silent Killer and her Stacy Adams shoes, Kidd meets two women who recognize his hostile tendencies and immediately begin to administer CPR to his soul. LPN Eva Savoy eventually becomes his "Eve," a woman God created from the underlying goodness hidden in Kidd's own heart. And then there is Mrs. Valentine, a woman who shows Kidd how to love himself from the power of the scriptures and the knowledge of his genealogy.
Reluctantly, Kidd allows Parke to divulge information about their royal family heritage. While everyone's care and compassion begin to smother Kidd, he struggles to keep up the bad boy attitude as his walls start to crumble. Kidd learns it's not his association with the name that identifies him, but the man he becomes that defines him.
Aaron “Ace” Jamieson is living a carefree life. He's good-looking, respectable when he's in the mood, but his weakness is women. Commitment is optional, something he learned from his absentee father.
Talise Rogers has a bright future ahead of her. She's pretty and has no problem catching a man's eye, which is exactly what she does with Ace. Their chemistry is undeniable and their passion explosive. When she learns she’s pregnant, Ace is in denial that the baby is his. "I want nothing from you, not even your name." Talise means it as she prepares to become a single mother.
Not so fast, because for the Jamieson men, it’s all about their name. Ace’s brother and cousins don’t plan to let Baby Jamieson, who will represent the twelfth generation descendant of a royal African tribe, leave the fold without a fight. God has a plan for Ace and Talise. He’s the only one who can set them free from the guilt of their past.
Two worlds apart, but their hearts dance to the same African drum beat.
On a professional level, Dr. Rainey Reynolds is a competent, highly sought-after orthodontist. Inwardly, he needs to be set free from the chaos of revelations that make him question if happiness is obtainable. His father, the upstanding OB/GYN socialite is currently serving prison time after admitting his guilt in an old crime. His older sister refuses to move past the betrayal and attempts to use Rainey as a crutch, but her bitterness is only keeping the family at odds as his twin sister, Cheney Reynolds Jamieson, tries to rebuild a damaged relationship caused by decisions she made in the past. To get away from the drama, Rainey is willing to leave the country under the guise of a mission trip with Dentist Without Borders. Will changing his surroundings really change him? If one woman can heal his wounds, then he will believe that there is really peace after the storm.
Ghanaian beauty Josephine Abena Yaa Amoah returns to Africa after completing her studies as an exchange student in St. Louis, Missouri. She’ll never forget the good friends she made while living there. She couldn’t count Rainey in that circle because she rejected his advances for good causes. Josephine didn’t believe in picking up the pieces as the rebound woman from an old relationship that Rainey seems to wear on his sleeve. Although her heart bleeds for his peace, she knows she must step back and pray for Rainey’s surrender to Christ in order for God to acquit him of his self-inflicted mental torture. In the Motherland of Ghana, Africa, Rainey not only visits the places of his ancestors, will he embrace the liberty that Christ’s Blood really does set every man free.

When he meets the beautiful Gabrielle Dupree, her humble disposition and love for God reveals Cameron’s spiritual deficit.

One by one, Cameron witnesses the men in his family submit to repentance and righteous living. He is absolutely determined not to go down without a fight.
Gabrielle is a romantic at heart and she’s even secretly created a list of all the qualities she wants in a man—“God-fearing” is at the top. Then she finds herself attracted to Cameron. In order not to yield to temptation, she calls for spiritual backup.
The Lord comes to her rescue, and Cameron won’t be able to explain what hit him.
