Cynthia HerronHer Hope Discovered—Is the sure thing worth risking for the possibility of maybe?

Rumor has it that Sam Packard the town carpenter is her go-to guy for home remodeling, but can Charla convince him to help her—with no strings attached, of course? Alone far too long, Sam’s prayed that God would send him a wife and a mother for his daughters. However, the new Ruby resident is hardly what he imagined.

Christa MacDonaldAt the Crossroad—Erin Sullivan has endured the rumor mill of Sweet River, Maine for years. Being the subject of small-town judgment taught her not to hope for good things. No matter how strong her feelings were for Pastor Dan Connors, she planned to keep them buried for the sake of his reputation and the good of her own heart.

Dan became a pastor thinking it would be temporary–three years later he is struggling in a job he never wanted. When Erin sees Dan struggling alone, she reaches out to help, and he comes to rely on her quiet strength and kindness. Dan is determined to find his way, but it may have to be without the woman he’s come to love.

But love has a hard time growing within two hearts scarred from past hurts. When Kate asks Buck for the unthinkable, her choice endangers both their lives. Can God mend their hearts and save their love?

Kelsey NormanUnbroken Spirit—Nina Anderson never expected to pull an unconscious man from a lake.

Crowns Legacy

(2 book series)

by Nadine C. Keels

Crowns Legacy

From Book 1: First in the Crowns Legacy series.

She isn’t a beautiful young maiden hoping to erase the Commander’s memory.
Opal Whilstead knows she has a reputation: a reputation as a bright, giving, upright woman—smiling and laughing her way through hopeless spinsterhood. It’s been so long since she’s had serious feelings for a man, but now she finds herself taken with the Commander Exemplar of Diachona’s army.

And she regrets it.

Not only is the Exemplar a widower still longing for his wife, but he’s the father of the reigning king. Even if a man of such prestige could find love again, he’d be unlikely to search for it among the kingdom’s old maids. Besides, Opal dreads being found, due to a grievous secret she carries…

This book is inspirational historical fantasy: fictional history that takes place in a completely fictional world. The background of this story comes further to light in The Movement of Crowns Series, which is great to read before or after this book.
