The Seven Trilogy | Spotlight & Excerpt

Welcome to the blog blitz to celebrate the new covers for Sara Davison's Seven Trilogy, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!


One of them is a prisoner and one of them is free. The same one.

Bookstore owner Meryn O’Reilly and Army Captain Jesse Christensen are on opposite sides of a battle. When martial law is declared, Jesse and his platoon are sent to Meryn’s city to keep an eye on the Christians and make sure they are not stepping outside of the confines of the law.

Fiery and quick-tempered, Meryn chafes under the curfew and other restrictions to her freedom. Jesse is equally amused, intrigued, and terrified by her spirit, knowing she could find herself in prison if she shows defiance to the wrong soldier.

His worst fears are realized when she commits a crime he cannot protect her from. Now they both face an uncertain future, and the very real threat of losing everything, including their lives. With time running out, Jesse works feverishly to convince the authorities to show leniency to Meryn. And to convince her that love can overcome any barrier that lies between them.

Their secrets protect them … but secrets are hard to keep.

No one in the army can find out that Captain Jesse Christensen has become a believer. He and bookstore owner Meryn O’Reilly are forced to meet in secret, facing imprisonment or worse if they are found together. Their relationship deepens, but so does Lieutenant Gallagher’s hatred for the Christians in their city. As Gallagher’s power grows, it becomes clear that his connections go much further up the chain of command than anyone realized, putting all believers, especially Jesse, in extreme danger.

Meryn wants to give her heart to Jesse fully, but her past holds her back. Although circumstances conspire to keep her silent, she needs to tell him her secret. When he finds out what she has been keeping from him, nothing will stand between them anymore.

Or nothing will ever be the same.

In the midst of all the fear and confusion, only one thing is clear … This isn’t over yet.

Jesse Christensen is out of the army, but the real battle has just begun. Major Gallagher has taken over the city and his oppression of believers has intensified. But is Gallagher acting in a professional capacity, or is he carrying out a personal vendetta?

Meryn O’Reilly faces a dark and uncertain future after shocking revelations devastate her life. She is determined to follow God’s call, but her plans could cost her everything. She and Jesse struggle to surrender fully to a God who is always in control, even when circumstances suggest otherwise.

With the world descending into chaos around them, Meryn and Jesse face the greatest barrier to their love yet—a barrier that may prove too strong to breach.

She reached him and touched his elbow, but he jerked away.

“Shane, listen. Please.”

He did turn then, whirled on her, so that she stepped back, surprise flashing across her face. “Oh, I’ll listen. If you have any way of explaining why you were meeting with my sister and now Major Gallagher, the two biggest threats to the Christians in town. In fact”—he crossed his arms over his chest—“I’d be extremely interested to hear what you have to say about that.”

“He is a customer. I’m friendly to all the customers that come into the shop. It’s called good business.”

Shane gritted his teeth. “Is that seriously the only explanation you are going to offer me?” He shook his head. “Meryn thought I’d been unfair to you the other day, had possibly even scared you by confronting you the way I did. And if that’s true, I apologize. However, what I just saw confirmed that I was right not to trust you. There is nothing good about whatever business you are involved in with those two. Which is why I need to stay away from you, and you need to stay away from everyone I care about.”

“Fine. You’re the one who came to see me. But like I told you the other day, if you stay out of my life, I’ll stay out of yours.”

“Don’t worry. I won’t set foot anywhere near you again.”


The words were clear, but the hurt in her eyes, the way her lips trembled slightly, confused him.

Almost as much as the fact that, as angry and frustrated as he was, the only thing he wanted to do was pull her into his arms and hold her, tell her that, whatever was going on, they would find a way to work it out.
