When Love Calls (The Gregory Sisters Book #1): A Novel

Lorna Seilstad

When romance calls, will she choose to answer?

Hannah Gregory is good at many things, but that list does not include following rules. So when she must apply for a job as a switchboard operator to support her two sisters, she knows it won’t be easy. Hello Girls must conduct themselves according to strict–and often bewildering–rules, which include absolutely no consorting with gentlemen while in training.

Hannah doubts it will be difficult to keep that rule–until a handsome young lawyer starts getting under her skin.

With historic details that bring to life the exciting first decade of the twentieth century, Lorna Seilstad weaves a charming tale of companionship that blossoms into sweet romance.

“Filled with witty prose and engaging characters, When Love Calls is a thoroughly charming love story.”–Maggie Brendan, author of the Heart of the West series and the Blue Willow Brides series

Contemporary Christian Texas Romance

Can a cowboy turned mayor help a wealthy city girl in her quest to find home?

Dani Davis just wants a place to call home. With lovable-but-quirky town folks, quaint country charm, and loads of business potential, Miller’s Creek, Texas seems like the perfect place to start over…except for the cowboy who gives her a ride into town. She secretly finances renovations to the downtown area until malicious rumors and a devastating discovery propel her down a road she never expected to travel.

Steve Miller is determined to rescue his dying hometown. When vandals jeopardize the renovation, he can’t help but suspect Dani, whose strange behavior has become fodder for local gossips. Can Steve and Dani call a truce for a higher cause, and in the process help Dani recognize the true meaning of home?

If you enjoy Christian western romance with an inspirational message of finding true home, Texas Roads is a book you’ll love.

2009 American Christian Fiction Writers’ Genesis finalist

“…one of those stories that sticks in your heart.” ~Amazon Reviewer

Interview With The Author

Q – Why write stories about a small fictional town in Texas?

A – I grew up in a small Texas town, so I know all the pros and cons and absolute blessings of living in a place like Miller’s Creek–a laid-back, down-home lifestyle, wonderful folks, and even a few who think it’s their job to know everyone’s personal business. The stories were designed to give readers an experience of feeling like they’ve arrived at a place that feels like home.

Although the Miller’s Creek novels are technically classified as romances, they’re really so much more: southern fiction, women’s fiction (though I have a surprisingly high amount of men readers), suspense, comedy, drama, even a little bit of psychological thriller thrown in to keep readers turning pages. And each of the books carry a distinctive spiritual theme as well as an overall journey theme for the series. (Hence words like roads, path, way, pilgrimage, and bridge in the titles.)

Q – In what order should the books be read?

A – The books were created as stand-alone novels, so they can be read in any order. However, if you have OCD issues like me, you might want to read them in the order in which they were written:

-TEXAS ROADS
-A PATH LESS TRAVELED
-THE WAY OF GRACE
-PILGRIMAGE OF PROMISE
-A BRIDGE UNBROKEN (and its companion Bible study on the theme of forgiveness, THE FRAGRANCE OF CRUSHED VIOLETS)
-CROSSROADS (Coming Soon)

Q – So why will readers be interested in the Miller’s Creek novels?

A – Based on reader reviews, I’d say the books are compelling reads for these five main reasons:

1. They make readers laugh one minute and tear up the next.
2. They offer plenty of conflict and tension to keep readers turning pages.
3. The setting is compelling. (Some readers have compared Miller’s Creek to Mayberry, only Texas-style. And I’ve lost count of how many readers have told me they want to live in Miller’s Creek.)
4. The characters are endearing and relatable.
5. The books’ themes are spiritually impactful.

In addition, all the books are rated at 4.5 stars or higher.

Q – Have any plans to bundle the series into a collection?

A – Actually the first three books have been bundled. Readers can check out my Amazon author page for a full list of my book titles, including the collection. And a big shout out to my reader friends: Thanks for reading!

Three Little Words (Walker Family): A Novella

Three Little Words (Walker Family): A Novella

Melissa Tagg

Ava Kingsley and Seth Walker might be the most unlikely friends ever. The only thing these two polar opposites have in common is a knack for wordsmithing. Back in college, they were known for their written sparring in the campus newspaper’s popular “He Says/She Says” column.

At their ten-year college reunion, they pick up right where they left off. Except this time their squabbling leads to a surprising turn: friendship and a year-long exchange of emails. So when Ava approaches a crossroads in her athletics department career in Minnesota, Seth is quick to offer the open apartment above the restaurant he’s been remodeling in Maple Valley, Iowa.

Ava doesn’t know where her career will lead her next, but she’s starting to suspect she might see Seth as more than a pen pal. Which would be exciting…except for the fact that he only sees her as a friend.

As Maple Valley grows on her, Ava wonders if there might be something here for her even though Seth is unavailable. And maybe, just maybe, after all the words the two of them have exchanged over the years, they’ll finally be able to say the three that matter most.

Three Little Words is an e-only novella that gives an exciting introduction to Melissa Tagg’s new series about the charismatic Walker family and the endearing town of Maple Valley!

Esther: A Woman of Strength and Dignity (Great Lives Series Book 2)

Esther: A Woman of Strength and Dignity (Great Lives Series Book 2)

Charles R. Swindoll

Everyone loves a transformation story. Rags to riches. Plain to beautiful. Weak to strong. Esther’s story is that, but it is much more. It is a thought-provoking study of God’s invisible hand writing silently and unseen across the pages of human history. Perhaps most of all, Esther’s story is the account of godly attributes like courage, dignity, wisdom, and strength?attributes that blocked an evil plot, overthrew an arrogant killer, and replaced terror with joy in thousands of Jewish homes.

Author Chuck Swindoll interweaves the ancient, real-life story with insight not only into the virtues of Queen Esther, but also into how the qualities that formed and empowered her can be ours. Esther is the second volume of Charles Swindoll’s best-selling series, which examines great lives from God’s Word and reveals the strengths and weaknesses that make God’s men and women both great . . . and human. Many of the most beloved biblical heroes were ordinary folks. Shepherds. Fishermen. Servants. Widows. Even harlots and petty thieves. One by one, they changed the course of history.

Swindoll explains that these men and women did not become great in their own strength but were empowered by God when they surrendered their lives to Him. To live such a life that God considers great is within the reach of everyone who submits to Him.

Mere Apologetics: How to Help Seekers and Skeptics Find Faith

Mere Apologetics: How to Help Seekers and Skeptics Find Faith

Alister E. McGrath

How to engage unbelievers with intelligence and imagination

Throughout history there have been great and articulate defenders of the faith. But with the new challenges of scientific atheism we see in our day, there is a need for a fresh and flexible approach to apologetics. Rather than supplying the fine detail of every apologetic issue in order to win arguments, Mere Apologetics teaches a method that appeals not only to the mind but also to the heart and the imagination.

After discussing the biblical basis for and historical uses of apologetics, McGrath offers various approaches to sharing your faith with others. He outlines pointers to faith, such as our innate sense of longing for justice, our appreciation for beauty, the order we see in the physical world, and much more. He also shows how there are many right ways to share your faith–through explanations, arguments, stories, and images–and helps you decide which works best for your personality and your audience.

“Apologetics is not to be seen as a defensive and hostile reaction against the world,” says McGrath, “but as a welcome opportunity to exhibit, celebrate, and display the treasure chest of the Christian faith.” If you long to commend your faith to those outside the church, Mere Apologetics will show you how to do so gracefully and effectively.

“This is a fresh, clear, and practical introduction to apologetics from someone who doesn’t just talk about the subject but actually does it brilliantly. It is especially helpful because it avoids the fruitless wrangling between apologetic schools that stops many people from getting on with the task. “–Os Guinness, author of Long Journey Home

“Mere Apologetics helps readers work out their own way to effectively communicate and defend the gospel. An excellent text for courses in apologetics. A great read for both beginning and experienced apologists.”–Jim Sire, author of The Universe Next Door

“Over the years I have found Alister McGrath to be an insightful, wise guide on many topics. So I am pleased to recommend his book on apologetics. It is foundational, practical, and creative as well as faithful to Scripture. A fine resource indeed!”–Paul Copan, author of Is God a Moral Monster?

Alister E. McGrath is professor of theology, ministry, and education and head of the Centre for Theology, Religion, and Culture at King’s College, London, and president of the Oxford Center for Christian Apologetics. He is the author and editor of numerous books, including the award-winning The Passionate Intellect: Christian Faith and the Discipleship of the Mind. A former atheist, he is respectful yet critical of the New Atheist movement and regularly engages in debate and dialogue with its leaders.

Like There's No Tomorrow

Like There’s No Tomorrow

Camille Eide

What if loving means letting go?

Scottish widower Ian MacLean is plagued by a mischievous grannie, bitter regrets, and an ache for something he’ll never have again. His only hope for freedom is to bring his grannie’s sister home from America. But first, he’ll have to convince her young companion, Emily Chapman, to let the woman go.

Emily devotes herself to foster youth and her beloved Aunt Grace. Caring for others quiets a secret fear she holds close to her heart. But when Ian appears, wanting to whisk Grace off to Scotland, everything Emily holds dear is at risk.

Like There’s No Tomorrow is an amusing yet heart-tugging love story about two kind, single caretakers, two quirky, old sisters bent on reuniting, and too many agendas. It’s a tale of family, fiery furnaces, faith, and the gift of each new day.

“I literally read Like There’s No Tomorrow in one sitting. A strong but troubled Scottish hero, an American heroine with a secret, and a cast of dynamic supporting characters all come together in this page-turning romantic debut. Camille Eide writes with abandon, depth, and emotional fortitude. Don’t miss this sublime novel!”
—Leslie Gould, #1 Bestselling and Christy Award-winning Author

“Camille Eide writes with such warmth and honesty, it’s nearly impossible to remember that the characters populating this engaging novel aren’t real. Like There’s No Tomorrow offers wisdom, laughter, and lovely, poignant moments from Glasgow, Scotland to Central Oregon, and will steal your heart from the moment you read the first page.”
—Cindy Kelley, screenwriter, author of Traces of Mercy

“Camille Eide’s writing infuses the reader with honeysuckle from the roads of Oregon to the crofts of Scotland, and with the sweet infusion comes a gentle love, built from heartache and fear, but paved with hope. Ms. Eide’s debut novel is rich with characters who have learned that obstacles don’t mean an end, but a new beginning. Dare yourself to be steeped in tea and wonder when two hurting people learn where true love leads.”
—Linda S. Glaz, literary agent, author of With Eyes of Love

“Tender and heart-wrenching, Camille Eide’s debut novel brings home the eternal truth that no one knows what tomorrow may bring. With characters and dialogue that sparkle, Like There’s No Tomorrow will weave its way into your heart and not let go. Beautiful, and the first of many novels, I hope, from this gifted writer.”
—Carla Stewart, award-winning author of Stardust and The Hatmaker’s Heart

“Camille Eide’s Like There’s No Tomorrow will tug your heartstrings as well as tickle your funny bone. The characterization is delicious, and I thought of my own BFF as I fell in love with two elderly Scottish sisters who renewed my faith in a better day ahead.”
—Sandra D. Bricker, author of Live-Out-Loud fiction for the inspirational market

This tender love story captured my heart. It’s a perfect blend of drama, humor, and romance topped off with delightful characters that will stay with you long after you’ve closed the book. This may be Camille Eide’s debut novel, but she is no novice at storytelling. Like There’s No Tomorrow is one of my favorite reads of the year. And Camille is on my short list of favorite authors.
—Bonnie Leon, author of The Journey of Eleven Moons

“There’s nothing more satisfying for a reader than a book that makes you rejoice when love is found, obstacles are overcome, and God’s grace is accepted. Like There’s No Tomorrow meets these criteria and more. Highly recommended!”
—Gayle Roper, author of An Unexpected Match, Lost and Found

The Unannounced Christmas Visitor

The Unannounced Christmas Visitor

Patrick Higgins

DON’T WAIT UNTIL CHRISTMAS TO RECEIVE THE ENORMOUS BLESSING THIS BOOK OFFERS TO ALL WHO READ IT!

Written by Patrick Higgins, author of “The Pelican Trees”, “Coffee In Manila” and the prophetic series, “Chaos In The Blink Of An Eye”, this story was partly inspired by a Christ-based feeding ministry in Orlando, Florida, but mostly inspired by Hebrews 13:2, which states, “Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it.”

What if angels really did come from the most unlikely of places? That’s exactly what happens in this heartwarming story, set in a homeless community in Anywhere USA. Sent to Planet Earth by his Maker, disguised as a homeless person, Enoch was on a mission: to rescue a man whose life was slowly but steadily spiraling out of control.

Up until seven months ago, John Jensen was a responsible, churchgoing, happily married man and father of two. Then the slow fade began and John went from living life passionately to questioning everything he once thought important, deeming much of it utterly meaningless.

The only place his wife, Lydia, could go to escape her ongoing marital struggles was the church she attended the past seventeen years. But even there it seemed her desperate cries to God for help always went unanswered. That is, until Enoch appeared one Sunday morning, hair unkempt, wearing ragged clothing.

To Lydia’s great dismay, the old man was mocked and ridiculed by so many of her fellow believers, ultimately banished to the last row of the sanctuary simply because of his untidy appearance. One week later, after church service, Lydia and her two children, Matthew and Grace, spotted the old man walking to the city park where he lived among many other homeless people.

Later that night, Lydia felt God’s strong urging to introduce herself to the man she still did not know had been sent as her Christmas miracle. In the days following her first visit to the homeless community in which the old man served as spiritual mentor, Lydia and her two children learned more about what it means to be true servants of God than she did in seventeen years at her church.

But with John Jensen being Enoch’s chief reason for coming to Planet Earth, would the severely depressed, apathetic man submit to the pulling of God’s Holy Spirit, or was he already too far gone to be rescued?

This story will challenge you like never before…

Be sure to read Patrick Higgins’ latest book, a series titled, Chaos In The Blink Of An Eye. The first installment is available for $0.99. The second installment, Chaos In The Blink Of An Eye – The Aftermath, is available for $1.99. The third installment, Chaos In The Blink Of An Eye – The Rising, will be available January 2016 for $2.99.
