Description

Welcome to a Place Where Love Abides

Experience the splendor of love with four sweet romances–each one the story of hearts and homes renewed–authored by some of the leading names in Christian romance fiction.

“THE QUEEN OF THE WORLD AND THE HANDYMAN” by Barbara Jean Hicks (An Unlikely Prince, All That Glitters, Loves Me, Loves Me Not)

Incensed by town gossip about Gran-Marie and her hired hand, Chloe Burnett determines to protect her grandmother’s reputation at all costs, even if it means posing as the cocky handyman’s fiancé! But a near-tragedy reveals that nothing is as it seems to be–including the pretend engagement that no longer feels pretend.

“BESIDE THE STILL WATERS” by Barbara A. Curtis

Interior designer K.C. McKenzie wants to restore her late husband’s family farmhouse, as well as her memories. But the new owner, Chicago architect Raleigh Kincaid, refuses to sell. When he enters a restoration contest, however, Raleigh finds that he needs K.C.–in more ways than one.

“HOME FOR THE HEART” by Shari MacDonald
(Love On the Run, A Match Made in Heaven, The Perfect Wife)

When spunky TV host Flynn Kelley inherits half of a historic Maryland estate, she squares off against a maddening–and endearing–figure from her troubled youth. Working together, can she and Charlie Kenilworth renovate the crumbling estate–and their wounded hearts?

“DON’T LOOK BACK” by Jane Orcutt
(The Living Stone, The Fugitive Heart, The Hidden Heart)

One year after a divorce she didn’t want, Laurie Golden has moved her children to small-town North Texas, hoping to restore what’s left of her family and the family home. But skeletons in her family’s closet reveal that history is sometimes best left in the past, and that the future is an open book in which life and love can be written.
