Romance Is In The Air Book Pack GIVEAWAY

How do you spell love? I spell it B-O-O-K-S! I absolutely *heart* books. Maybe you have the same love for books as me? If so, this Valentines Day giveaway is for YOU!

Christian & Romance, two words that some people don't always put together. They think it's tame and put into a box. Um, maybe you haven't read Christian Fiction lately. Yes, there are different varieties of Christian romance as with any other genre.

Have I got some great books to giveaway to help you start a fire on Valentines Day!


A Passion Most Pure by Julie Lessman

Refusing to settle for anything less than a romantic relationship that pleases God, Faith O'Connor steels her heart against her desire for the roguish Collin McGuire. But when Collin tries to win her sister Charity's hand, Faith is not sure she can handle the jealousy she feels. To further complicate matters, Faith finds herself the object of Collin's affections, even as he is courting her sister. The Great War is raging overseas, and a smaller war is brewing in the O'Connor household.

Searching for Spice by Megan DiMaria

Frustrated wife and mother Linda Revere craves the thrill of romance---but her nerdy, highly practical husband loves their 24-year status quo! And as Linda struggles to bring a little pizazz to their partnership, her efforts only confuse her sensible spouse. Can they find a way to sizzle, or is passion doomed to fizzle?





Too Good To Be True by Trish Perry

Rennie Young, heroine of Too Good to Be True, meets the gallant Truman Sayers after she faints in the boys’ department of the local super store. Despite this unromantic introduction, Tru Sayers, a handsome young labor–and–delivery nurse, seems like a gift from God. But a recent divorce and other life disappointments cause Ren to question whether she can trust her heart and God.

The Heart’s Journey Home by Jen Stephens

Home is where the heart is . . . or is it?

Three years after Kate Sterling's heart was shattered by the unexpected death of her husband, she packs up what is left of her life and moves back to Harvest Bay, Ohio, with her young daughter. She soon discovers that her sleepy hometown has changed—and that she has been given a second chance at love. But, is God leading her to a love linked to the past . . . or to one who will walk with her into the future? Which road will Kate take on The Heart's Journey Home?




How Sweet It Is by Alice J. Wisler

Chef Deena Livingston leaves a broken romance in Atlanta for the Smoky Mountains of North Carolina, venturing to her grandfather's cabin in Bryson City. Her grandfather has died, and left a strange request. He wants her to teach cooking to a bunch of disadvantaged kids at an after-school program. Deena struggles with the children, a handsome social worker, writing in a journal, and her own self-image. Will she learn to forgive her two-timing fiance and risk falling in love again?

Texas Roads e-book by Cathy Bryant

City gal Dani Davis just wants to find a place to call home. Miller’s Creek, Texas seems like the perfect place to start over, except for the cowboy who gives her a ride into town.Dani secretly finances renovations to the downtown area of Miller’s Creek, but malicious rumors force her to choose between keeping her involvement a secret and the home for which she’s always longed.

Steve Miller is determined to save his dying hometown. When vandalism jeopardizes the downtown restoration project, he can’t help but suspect Dani, whose strange behavior has become fodder for local gossips. Will Steve and Dani be able to call a truce for a higher cause, and help Dani understand the true meaning of home?
