I am happy to present my first contemporary Christian romance, Holding On, book one in the Love Blooms at Bethel series.
It is scheduled for release in early June in both e-book and paperback forms. During the launch the e-book will be 99 cents and the paperback will be priced a fraction over cost, so you’ll want to snag your copy then.

Readers also get free inspirational short stories, so do sign up. Just go to my homepage and download “Charlotte’s House.”
A sweet inspirational romance—with a touch of mystery—about courage, loyalty, and second chances.
When Julia passes through the small town of Coldwater, Illinois, driving her screeching pickup with her mother-in-law and everything Helen owns in the RV they’re towing, romance is the last thing on her mind. All she wants is to get Helen settled on what’s left of the Holden family farm just outside of town and hurry back to civilization.
But apparently someone is after Helen’s forty acres, and Julia realizes she’s going to have to stick around to help her hold onto them. Besides, how could she possibly leave her mother-in-law to the tender mercies of the legalistic bullies who have taken over Bethel Church? They pick at Helen like Job’s “friends,” convinced that God has cursed her. Why else would Helen have lost her husband and all three sons in two tragic accidents?
Julia’s a strong woman, determined to deal with everything on her own, just as she’s been doing ever since her husband Lucas died. Unfortunately, handsome Neil Ashe, a wealthy landowner with a hero complex, thinks it’s his job to make all their problems go away.
Julia’s still mourning for Lucas. But every time Neil shows up the attraction between them flares—even though Neil’s marriage has left him scarred and leery of city women, and Julia’s not interested in a farmer with rough hands and an excess of muscles, a guy who insists that the reason he sits with “the sinners” in the back row at church is because he’s fallen from grace.
Despite that, Julia refuses to believe Neil is the one trying to take Helen’s land. But will Julia continue stubbornly going it alone, holding onto both her pride and the memory of her dead husband, or will she allow Neil to come to the rescue—and into her heart?
It would be so nice of you to share!
