Cowboy Kisses: three contemporary cowboy romances (Heart of Oklahoma)

Cowboy Kisses: three contemporary cowboy romances (Heart of Oklahoma)

Lacy Williams

From USA Today bestselling author Lacy Williams, this collection includes: Kissed by a Cowboy, Love Letters from Cowboy, and Mistletoe Cowboy. Available in September: Cowgirl Kisses: three more contemporary cowboy romances!

Wendy the SuperLibrarian on Return of the Cowboy Doctor: “…sometimes I think achieving “sweet” (or “gentle”) is exceptionally hard for a writer to pull off. Lacy Williams is my go-to author for when I simply want a sweet, gentle read that won’t send me into a diabetic coma.”

Kissed by a Cowboy

Just shy of her thirtieth birthday, Haley Carston returns to Redbud Trails, Oklahoma, to care for her dying aunt. She thinks she’s ready for this homecoming. She’s spent years escaping her perpetual shyness and being Katie Michaels’ tag-along friend, but being back in her hometown brings back a lot of old memories, especially when she is faced with the cowboy she never forgot—Katie’s older brother, Maddox.

Twelve years ago, Maddox Michaels was supposed to be somebody. He had everything. A football scholarship. A Division I team scouting him. Maybe even a chance at the pros. Now, he’s a burned-out cowboy working day and night to stay ahead of his brother’s medical bills and keep their family farm from going bankrupt. And trying to be a father-figure for his niece, Olivia.

When Haley and Olivia start spending time together, Maddox can’t help remembering those dreams that died alongside his sister. Will being with Haley open his heart to new dreams?

Love Letters from Cowboy

When the love of his life is injured in combat, Ryan Michaels promises himself he won’t let any more time go by without ensuring she knows that he loves her. His problem? Ashley still sees him as the goofy high school kid that followed her everywhere.

Ashley Reynolds returns home to Redbud Trails, Oklahoma, a wounded veteran, with her Military Working Dog at her side. She’s concerned about her aging parents and doesn’t have time for a relationship—especially not one with a college dropout like Ryan.

But as Ashley dives back into the life she left behind, she discovers there’s much more to Ryan than she thought… there’s a man of honor and integrity. Will she open her heart and let Ryan in?

Mistletoe Cowboy

After suffering a career-ending injury, bull rider Justin Michaels has stalled out. At twenty-seven, he’s back in college trying to find direction for his life. He doesn’t have room for distractions—even pretty ones like the barista who sits next to him in class.

Valri North has spent her whole life taking care of her younger siblings. Now she’s a few credits away from completing her pre-med degree. She’s got her life planned out, until a disastrous assignment in class and a larger-than-life cowboy threaten to derail her carefully-ordered plans.

Justin determines to keep a budding friendship with Valri platonic… until a Christmas snowstorm forces the two into close proximity. How can he keep his feelings for Valri hidden when she’s too close for comfort?

—————————————————

* USA TODAY on Lacy Williams’s historical romance ROPING THE WRANGLER: “A great pick to toss into your beach bag for one of those last weekend trips before the leaves start to fall… a sweet inspy romance that will draw you into the old west and send you away smiling.”

The Link That Could Not Be Broken

The Link That Could Not Be Broken

C.L. Shaffer

Gavin is a man who has lost his faith in God.

During a periodic meeting with his lifelong friend and religious mentor, Dr. Faulkner Brickley, Gavin confesses that he is no longer a believer. Alarmed that his friend has lost the capacity to see that life can be extraordinary, the professor decides it’s time to reveal a secret. “We can either choose to use our talents or not to use them,” he tells Gavin before dramatically demonstrating to him that God has granted him with an amazing gift.

Meanwhile, Gavin runs into his old flame at a funeral. He brought Elizabeth Kashner into the faith, all those years ago. But in his state of grief following the death of his father, he had told Elizabeth he no longer wanted her in his life. Although their chance meeting stirs up old feelings, nothing much comes of it—until Elizabeth goes on a missionary trip to the Russian republic of Ingushetia.

When Elizabeth ends up being held hostage, Gavin offers to use his newfound talent to win her freedom. In the meantime, Elizabeth’s own plan of escape is to create a bond with one of her captors.

As a result of their adventures, lives are changed—in very surprising ways. And Gavin sees that life can be extraordinary. But is this enough to shake his disbelief?

If God, Why Evil?: A New Way to Think about the Question

If God, Why Evil?: A New Way to Think about the Question

Norman L. Geisler

Where Did Evil Come From? And Why Doesn’t God Do Something About It?

The problem of evil is perhaps the most difficult question the Christian must face. If God is good and all-powerful, why is there suffering in the world? Can’t God put an end to murder, rape, and starvation? What about earthquakes, hurricanes, and tsunamis? Why couldn’t a perfect God have made a perfect world?

In this concise but thorough book, Dr. Norman Geisler carefully answers these tough questions, using step-by-step explanations and compelling examples. He walks the reader through time-tested answers but also provides a new approach revolving around whether or not this world is the “best of all possible worlds.” All this adds up to comforting news for believers: We can rest assured that God is both loving and all-powerful.

Named an Outreach Magazine Resource of the Year

“This is classic Geisler–brilliant, incisive, succinct, convincing. He’s one of the great defenders of Christianity.”
–Lee Strobel, author, The Case for Christ and The Case for the Real Jesus

“This is one of the clearest, most comprehensive, and penetrating presentations on one of the most difficult problems that thinking Christians face.”
–Ravi Zacharias, Author/speaker, President Ravi Zacharias International Ministries

What's So Amazing About Grace?

What’s So Amazing About Grace?

Philip Yancey

In 1987, an IRA bomb buried Gordon Wilson and his twenty-year-old daughter beneath five feet of rubble. Gordon alone survived. And forgave. He said of the bombers, “I have lost my daughter, but I bear no grudge. . . . I shall pray, tonight and every night, that God will forgive them.”

His words caught the media’s ear–and out of one man’s grief, the world got a glimpse of grace.

Grace is the church’s great distinctive. It’s the one thing the world cannot duplicate, and the one thing it craves above all else–for only grace can bring hope and transformation to a jaded world.

In What’s So Amazing About Grace? award-winning author Philip Yancey explores grace at street level. If grace is God’s love for the undeserving, he asks, then what does it look like in action? And if Christians are its sole dispensers, then how are we doing at lavishing grace on a world that knows far more of cruelty and unforgiveness than it does of mercy?

Yancey sets grace in the midst of life’s stark images, tests its mettle against horrific “ungrace.” Can grace survive in the midst of such atrocities as the Nazi holocaust? Can it triumph over the brutality of the Ku Klux Klan? Should any grace at all be shown to the likes of Jeffrey Dahmer, who killed and cannibalized seventeen young men?

Grace does not excuse sin, says Yancey, but it treasures the sinner. True grace is shocking, scandalous. It shakes our conventions with its insistence on getting close to sinners and touching them with mercy and hope. It forgives the unfaithful spouse, the racist, the child abuser. It loves today’s AIDS-ridden addict as much as the tax collector of Jesus’ day.

In his most personal and provocative book ever, Yancey offers compelling, true portraits of grace’s life-changing power. He searches for its presence in his own life and in the church. He asks, How can Christians contend graciously with moral issues that threaten all they hold dear?

And he challenges us to become living answers to a world that desperately wants to know, What’s So Amazing About Grace?

Surviving in an Angry World: Finding Your Way to Personal Peace

Surviving in an Angry World: Finding Your Way to Personal Peace

Charles F. Stanley

The premise of this book is that learning to let go of anger—and ultimately forgiving the offender—will transform the foundation of every kind of relationship we have. Stanley defines anger as “a strong feeling of intense displeasure, hostility, or indignation as a result of a real or an imagined threat or insult, frustration, or injustice toward yourself or towards someone who’s very important to you.” Building on this defintion, Stanley…

1. Helps readers identify the signs of anger, so they can identify anger in themselves.

2. Reveals the far-reaching consequences of anger, which encompass the spiritual, emotional, and physical.

3. Teaches readers how to handle anger through thirteen concrete steps.

4. Walks readers through the steps to true forgiveness and the healing power it brings.

With compassion and a wealth of biblical understanding, Stanley explains that the measure of a person is “the size of thing that makes them angry.” He goes on to distinguish between healthy and harmful anger and reminds us that “righteous indignation” is a divine emotion. However, he skillfully explains that misguided anger eats away at ourselves, our relationships with others, and our relationship with God. By helping readers look honestly at the source of their anger, he gently leads them to the ability to truly forgive and find the peace they seek.

The Curiosity Keeper (A Treasures of Surrey Novel)

The Curiosity Keeper (A Treasures of Surrey Novel)

Sarah E. Ladd

“It is not just a ruby, as you say. It is large as a quail’s egg, still untouched and unpolished. And it is rumored to either bless or curse whoever possesses it.”

Camille Iverness can take care of herself. She’s done so since the day her mother abandoned the family and left Camille to run their shabby curiosity shop. But when a violent betrayal leaves her injured with no place to hide, Camille must allow a mysterious stranger to come to her aid.

Jonathan Gilchrist never wanted to inherit Kettering Hall. As a second son, he was content to work as the village apothecary. But when his brother’s death made him heir just as his father’s foolish decisions put the estate at risk, only the sale of a priceless possession—a ruby called the Bevoy—can save the family from ruin. But the gem has disappeared. And all trails lead to Iverness Curiosity Shop—and the beautiful shop girl who may be the answer to his many questions.

Caught at the intersection of blessings and curses, greed and deceit, these two determined souls must unite to protect what they hold dear. But when a passion that shines far brighter than any gem is ignited, they will have to decide how much they are willing to risk for their future, love, and happiness.

Flame of Resistance

Years of Nazi occupation have stolen much from Brigitte Durand. Family. Freedom. Hope for a future, especially for a woman with a past like hers.

Picked up by the Resistance, Tom becomes the linchpin in their plan to infiltrate a Germans-only brothel and get critical intel out through Brigitte, a prostitute rumored to be sympathetic to the Allied cause.

D-day looms and everyone knows that invasion is imminent. But so is treachery, and the life of one American pilot unexpectedly jeopardizes everything. He becomes more important than the mission to a man who cannot bear to lose another agent and to a woman who is more than just a prostitute, who finally realizes that her actions could change the course of history.
