Spotlight on Katie’s Chance for Romance

This week’s Fall Into Romance spotlight is on Katie’s Chance for Romance by Jessica L. Elliott.

Katie Mackall broke up with high school sweetheart Mike Elders when his decision caused a deviation in their plans. Five years later, he returns to Romance and she can’t seem to shake him. When Mike comes to her rescue, Katie must decide if she’s going to let go of her lingering doubts and give her heart the lead.

Mike never forgot Katie, and when he accepts a teaching position in Romance, he hopes to have a second chance with her. But their complicated past, and a PTA mom who won’t get out of his way, doesn’t make it easy. An instant connection with Katie’s new dog may not be enough to win her heart, but determination and patience, with just the right touch of romance, might.

For as long as she can remember, Jessica L. Elliott has been telling stories. As soon as she could grasp a pencil she began writing those stories down. Reading fueled her imagination, as did spending time with her five younger brothers and sisters. Everything was an adventure, something to be treasured and stories were her first love. Jessica began seriously writing in high school and continued into college while attending Emporia State University where she graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. She wrote and released her first novel, Charming Academy, in August of 2011. Jessica currently lives in southwest Kansas with her husband and children.

18 Hours to Us Review

I had the opportunity to read an advanced copy of this adorable YA romance, written by a friend and critique partner. I highly recommend it. Here is my Goodreads review:

18 Hours To Us by Krista Noorman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

18 Hours To Us

I so enjoyed this Christian YA story. It’s fun how the 2 get thrown together on an 18hour road trip. The two have a good chemistry between them for an adorable romance and the dialog is fun and natural. You’ll want to read more about them when the book ends. It has an inspirational message about forgiveness and second chances, that makes it a fulfilling read.

Spotlight on Restoring Romance

It’s time for another novella spotlight from the upcoming Fall Into Romance collection. Today you can learn more about Restoring Romance by Tamie Dearen.

She’s a big city chef who likes cats. He’s a small town mayor who restores antiques. But even with feline allergies at play, true love is nothing to sneeze at.

When Ash Hendrix moves into her aunt’s historic home in Romance, Oregon, she’s ready to bring New York City style to the sleepy little town. But her dream of remodeling the old home into a stylish restaurant is cut short when the mayor interferes. Her opposite in every way, the infuriating Adam is the last man she could ever be attracted to. So why can’t she stop thinking about him?

Mayor Adam Walker can’t believe the cute blond he met at the festival is the woman who’s trying to destroy his family’s legacy. Initially intent on shutting down her plans, he’s shocked to find himself wanting to fulfill them, instead. But she doesn’t trust him. And why would she, with her traumatic past and his earlier antagonism?

Can these two opposites find happily-ever-after? Not without a little help from their friends and family… and a can of pink paint.
You can’t miss this in Fall Into Romance, on pre-order now and releasing October 5th. 

Tamie Dearen has been married to her very romantic husband since 1982. They have two beautiful daughters, two amazing son-in-laws, and one awesome grandson. She plays piano, flute, harmonica, keyboards, and guitar, and loves composing and art. And she hates housework. A dentist in private practice for thirty years, Tamie stays busy playing on her church’s praise team and teaching graduate students each week. In her spare time, she escapes the real world by writing books.

Tamie met her husband as a freshman in college when she acted out of character on a whim. One night in the library lobby, she spied a cute guy with his first name written on the back of his shirt. She called out his name. When he approached to talk to her, she pretended that she’d met him before, asking about his classes and how he liked college. To her surprise and delight, he also pretended that he knew her, but of course he didn’t know her name. They continued this false relationship for two months. Each time they saw each other,an event which occurred three times per week at the cafeteria, he would pretend he knew her. Meanwhile, all of Tamie’s friends were careful not to reveal her name to him. When he finally admitted his ignorance of her name, he was astonished to learn the truth. And the rest is history.
