In A Mother's Love, Jillian Carter's life is about to change drastically. Her daughter, Shana, is beating her to the altar after falling in love with her soul mate. It's an experience Jillian knows nothing about. After mistaking love for lust one summer, Jillian found herself as an unwed teenage mother. Now at thirty-nine, Jillian isn't looking forward to becoming an empty-nester and the boredom that it brings. She's not buying the old adage, "she's not losing a daughter, but gaining a son." Suddenly, things become very interesting when two unexpected men vye for her affections: Shana's biological father breezes back into their lives as a redeemed man after twenty-three years of parental neglect. Not only is Alex Nixon still good looking, but he's ready to right the wrong he's done. But not so fast. With the Lord's help, Jillian finds she's able to forgive Alex though she struggles to forget all the special moments he missed in their daughter's life. To complicate matters, the widowed father of the groom, Dr. Dexter Harris, has set his sights on Jillian and he's willing to pull out all the stops to woo her. Jillian must choose who will be her soul mate and give her the happily ever after she never thought possible. A Mother's Love is a Christian romantic novella that proves it's never too late for love. *** In Words of Love, call it old fashion, but Simone French was smitten with a love letter. Not a text, email, or Facebook post, but a love letter sent through snail mail. The prose wasn't the corny roses-are-red-and-violets-are-blue stuff. The first letter contained short accolades for a job well done. Soon after, the missives were filled with passionate words from a man who confessed the hidden secrets of his soul. He revealed his unspoken weaknesses, listed his uncompromising desires, and unapologetically noted his subtle strengths. Rice Taylor was ready to surrender to love. Whew. Closing her eyes, Simone inhaled the faint lingering smell of roses on the beige plain stationery. She had a testimony. If anyone would listen, she would proclaim that love was truly blind. How do two people go undercover to hide an office romance in a busy television newsroom? In plain sight, of course. *** In Love at Work, Desiree King is an assignment editor at KDPX-TV in St. Louis, MO. She dispatches a team to wherever breaking news happens. Her focus is to stay ahead of the competition. Overall, she's easy-going, respectable, and compassionate. But when it comes to dating a fellow coworker, she refuses to cross that professional line. Award-winning investigative reporter Brooke Mitchell makes life challenging for Desiree with his thoughtful gestures, sweet notes, and support. He tries to convince Desiree that as Christians, they could show coworkers how to blend their personal and private lives without compromising their morals. But Desiree has more on the line than protecting her job or reputation. She's safeguarding her heart. However, Brooke will prove to her that love doesn't just happen, it takes work
