I cannot seem to get enough of Dawn Crandall’s books. This novella swept me away and the beautiful ending came way too soon. The story is written entirely from the heroine’s perspective, allowing the reader to truly feel her joy as well as her pain.
Nicholette and Cal…. Ahh, these two are something special. Their attraction to each other is instant, but their relationship grows at a gentle pace. I loved watching these two fall for each other. Every moment they shared on the page together was full of that beautiful romantic tension the author writes so well.
Enchanting Nicholette is soooo romantic and sweet, a heart-satisfying read from beginning to end.
This author knows how to keep her readers happy. She’s one of my go-to authors for entertaining and heartfelt romance fiction. For Love of Liberty was full of sass and sweetness. Sparks fly from the opening pages and I laughed on more than one occasion.
These two are stubborn and full of charisma. They have a history and a chemistry that can not be ignored. This book was a quick, lighthearted read. It’s a witty, love story set in the wild west and I can’t wait to see where the story goes from here. The book ended way too soon. I wanted to stay in their world a bit longer and see what trouble they got into next. 🙂

This book was easy to read and easy to love. It had just the right blend of history and romance to keep me intrigued and I wasn’t quite ready for it to be over. I wanted to stay in their world and see more of their story unfold.
Penelope and John are wounded characters with big hearts. I longed for them to find their happily-ever-after. Their fears and the world around them prove to be hardy obstacles. Their journey has its bumps and bruises, but I loved seeing how they grew and were strengthened through adversity. Read more ›

N.Y. Times Bestselling author AUTHOR MARGARET BROWNLEY has penned more than forty-five novels and novellas. Her books have won numerous awards, including Readers’ Choice and Award of Excellence. She’s a two-time Romance Writers of American RITA® finalist and has written for a TV soap. She is currently working on a new series. Not bad for someone who flunked eighth- grade English.

After reading the first two books in this series, there was no way I was going to miss the third and final installment. I had to know the ending! 🙂 Unbreakable picks up right where Unraveling left off and wasted no time in capturing my complete attention. This is one of those stories you can’t put down and you can’t guess what’s going to happen next.
There is so much emotion and life within this book. Highs and lows. Lessons learned and love shared. It’s an epic journey for the characters and the readers alike. There were times I felt out of breath alongside them. 🙂 So many twists, so many layers to the story. Read more ›

I love discovering new authors and I’m so happy to have read Tara Johnson’s beautiful debut. This story will satisfy and charm its way into your heart with grace and ease. I always love reading Civil War fiction and this one had its own sweeping story to tell.
The south during the war is painted with gripping detail and heartfelt craft. The characters and their world – overwhelmed with fears, responsibilities, faith, and allegiances – came to life as I read. I loved them for their flaws and for their strengths. Keziah and Micah have a journey to share that you won’t want to miss. Their bravery and kindness should inspire all of us to ponder our own walks with the Lord and follow Him in faith. Read more ›
