Up and Coming

In Spite of Ourselves

By Jennifer Rodewald

 

Who could build a life on such a monumental mistake?

Jackson Murphy: family prankster, class clown… and now, smack in the middle of a Vegas-sized mess. All he’d wanted was to qualify for the Boston Marathon. After failing that goal, he slipped into a deep, sulking valley, only to emerge from it with a much bigger problem. He’s married. To a complete stranger! Forget making a world-class marathon so that his family will believe that (1) he’s capable of being grown up and serious on occasion and (2) he doesn’t need the ongoing pity about his brother and a certain ex-girlfriend.

Now? Now he has no idea what to do.

Mackenzie Murphy: independent woman and excellent student—but not a med student. Because those pesky MCATs were H-A-R-D. She doesn’t particularly mind that much, seeing as she’s never really wanted to be a doctor, but her mother will be…uh, displeased. Exceptionally. That’s nothing, however, compared to how Mother will respond if she finds out what else happened in Vegas.

Mackenzie wants out. Jackson wants a chance. Neither of them is prepared for what’s coming. Caught in the middle of a disaster that keeps getting bigger, they hardly dare ask: Can God take their monumental mistake and turn it into a beautiful life?

In Spite of Ourselves, Book 13 in The Potter’s House Books Series Two, is an uplifting and inspiring story of hope, redemption and second chances. It is also book Two in Jennifer Rodewald’s Murphy Brother Stories (book One is Always You). Grab your copy and be encouraged today.

Her Christmas Cowboy

By  Dora Hiers

 

A forbidden romance. A secret child. Will deception crush their love…or will truth and faith prevail?

A forbidden romance…
Bryce Kinnerly was everything Tristyn could want in a husband. Attractive. Kind. Thoughtful. Attentive.

Everything her husband isn’t.

Rich abandoned her shortly after Maisie was born—seven years ago—but she never filed for divorce and remained faithful to her vow. Until Bryce. He makes her feel treasured and alive again, fills the lonely spaces in her heart. Every stolen moment buries the truth even deeper. Until the day she knows. That one more sweet kiss will suffocate her soul, smother her faith.

A secret child…
Bryce Kinnerly’s extreme adventure photos have graced the pages of several national magazines. He’s traveled the globe in his quest to capture the perfect shot, the one that would make him forget the beautiful blonde woman who stole his heart and then disappeared. Bone-weary, he accepts their mutual friend’s offer for a breather in the wilds of Montana and stumbles upon Tristyn and…her daughter?

Will deception crush their love…
How could she have kept the truth from him? Especially after he’d bared his heart, his dreams. He’d been so certain of the Lord’s will for them. How could he have gotten it all wrong?

Or will truth and faith prevail?
As they work together for the Cowboy Jamboree, can Bryce forgive Tristyn’s deception? Can she forgive herself? Will Tristyn’s renewed faith grant them a second chance at a forever love this Christmas?

Her Christmas Cowboy, a contemporary Christian romance, is Book 14 in The Potter’s House Books Series Two. Stories of ‘hope, redemption and second chances.’ Read all of The Potter’s House Books and be blessed.
