CrossReads Book Spotlight


(Prairie Roses Collection Book 9)

by Annee JonesTess

A betrayal…a secret baby….an unknown imposter…will Tess survive the wagon train journey to Sunset Hills, Oregon after her life is threatened? And if so, what will she do once she gets there?

1855. Independence, Missouri. Tess Findlay can’t wait to be reunited with her beau who went out west three months ago to mine for gold, saying he’d send for her once he’d gotten established. Even though she hasn’t heard from him she’s discovered she’s with child and decides to join a wagon train to travel to Oregon to surprise him with the news. When a band of robbers holds up the caravan, Tess is shocked to recognize her beau as one of the outlaws. He warns her that someone on the wagon train isn’t who they seem but before he can reveal the person’s identity he is killed in a gunfight. Who can Tess trust? She is drawn to widowed physician Garrett Kincaid but fears for her life and that of her unborn child. Besides, what man would ever want a woman who is carrying another man’s baby?

Garrett Kincaid is looking forward to bringing his youngest nephew, Jacob, to join his sister and brother-in-law in their new home of Sunset Hills, OR. His sister begged him to care for her young son until the rest of the family got settled. The time is right for them to make the journey west. There is nothing left in Kansas now for Garrett, anyway, not since his wife died of typhoid fever. He’s always wanted to start his own medical clinic, and Sunset Hill seems like the perfect place. However, after the wagon train is robbed, Garrett realizes he will have to do everything in his power to help the group arrive safely. When Jacob befriends a beautiful young woman, Garrett can’t help but wonder why she is traveling alone. Can he discover her secrets without scaring her away? And he is ready to love again?


Reading is AMAZING!

Full Circle to Love

Historical Scottish Romance

(Wildflower Series Book 3)

by Peggy McGee

Full Circle to Love

Elise Gustan, whose father owned a shipbuilding business, always believed she would marry her beloved sea captain, Aron Seagle. However, her father desperately wanted his beautiful daughter settled as he lay dying, upon learning Aron was lost at sea. Handsome Laird Randall MacAdam, known as a rogue, offered to purchase the business and hand-fast his stunning daughter. Suddenly finding herself confined to the MacAdam Keep for the purpose of providing Laird Rand with a desired progeny, she sought to escape upon learning of Laird Rand’s proclivities for the lasses. As the twelve-month hand-fast came to a conclusion, she was able to flee through a tinker she met at a local fair. Upon her arrival back in Edinburgh, she discovered Aron was alive, who helped her to abscond from the laird in pursuit on his ship to America. During the voyage they were married, shortly thereafter discovering that she was with child. Bearing twins back in London, she was devastated to discover while the lass resembled her, the lad had the coloring of the laird, explaining away that he took after her Irish kin. Many years later back in Scotland following Aron’s demise at sea, her son becomes fortuitously reacquainted with the laird as the paternity question once again arises, causing all kinds of dire consequences. Should Elise flee to protect her children or prepare to deny paternity as the laird, once again, pursues her and the children. This historically Scottish romance and adventure (era 1820s) will keep you riveted from beginning to end as Elise attempts to unravel her roots while protecting herself and her children from the societal expectations and demands of the time.

                          Believers are Fighters 5/10/2021

by Rebekah Beene

Recently we watched a movie with Jimmy Stewart as a lawyer defending a soldier accused of killing a prize fighter over his wife.  Now this prize fighter had lots of trophies and awards for winning many battles.

Oh beloved, God speaks to my heart and yours.  Believers are fighters. We fight for a prize that is out of this world.  And we don’t fight for awards or trophies of the earth. But we are in a fight and the arena is life and there is one who is always out to kill us. He may not try death on us all, but he is a killer a thief and a liar, who wants to destroy any strength in power of Holy Spirit we have. He wants us to believe things are hopeless, we have no reason to live.  He would love for us to tap out and quit altogether.

But God has a plan in our weakest moments. He shows up!  He overcomes all the plans of the enemy on our behalf. But we can’t remain for the 10 count lying in our own weakness. We must arise! We must stand up and walk in the power of Holy Spirit!  These are not the days to quit! These are the days to stand taller, fight harder and receive the crown!  It’s your calling the opposition is after. That high calling in Christ Jesus!  The weapons formed against you are carnal, but you will have to fight with the prize in your mind – spiritually and without succumbing to tactics that will only cause you to lose.  You are in the Spirit, you are born again of incorruptible seed and within you is the power of God through the resurrection of Christ to stand! You won’t lose because you’ve been redeemed to be a winner!
