My sixth contemporary Christian romance book with Harlequin’s Love Inspired Heartsong Presents line, Seaside Proposal, was released last month. Today I’m posting information on the new Heartsong Presents releases for June. The June books are also the final books being published under the Heartsong Presents imprint. I’ve appreciated the opportunity to start my publishing career with Harlequin and the Heartsong line. My agent, Steve Laube, wrote a lovely tribute last year on Heartsong’s Publishing Legacy.
RAQUEL MARRIS NEEDS A MAN WHO’LL STAY PUT
And Slade Walker’s not a likely candidate. Even if the former major league pitcher just agreed to coach her son’s little league team. The single mom can’t risk everything on a bronc-riding chaplain who’s only passing through Raquel’s small Texas town.
Slade is taking a hiatus from the rodeo circuit to meet the sister he never knew he had. But the pretty widowed nurse next door is making him think twice about hitting the road again. He can’t turn his back on the cowboys who need him, but Raquel and her boy need him, too. Can Slade fulfill his calling and finally find a place to hang his hat?
VERITY CLARK DESERVES A SECOND CHANCE
The struggling single mom is doing her best to raise her three kids. But when her eldest son is caught skipping school, she needs help. Thankfully, truant officer Garrett Sawtelle is on her side. Soon Verity is turning more and more to the caring educator, who’s awakening tender feelings she can’t afford to act on.
Garrett wants to make a difference. He knows it’s against the rules to get too close to the families he counsels. But the spunky widow and her children are fast becoming part of this bachelor’s dreams for the future. Can he convince Verity that, together, they can build something real and lasting?
AARON HARRIS LIVES A SIMPLE LIFE
He’s always been most at home with the sea—not with beautiful, sophisticated women like reporter Madeline Casey. So Aaron can hardly believe it when the newspaperwoman from the big city seems smitten with him. But soon he begins to suspect she’ll do anything to get a scoop—even feign love.
Madeline’s desperate to save her family’s newspaper. And a breaking story about two secretive brothers and their flying machine could be just the headline she needs. But as she chases her lead with Aaron’s help, Madeline just might find herself sailing toward a happily-ever-after with the rugged seaman.
TROY MORRISON IS THE BIGGEST CATCH IN TOWN
Olivia Bradshaw has loved Troy since childhood. And now is her chance with the handsome banker. But when every other woman on San Juan Island is also charmed by his easy manner and good looks, Olivia worries he’ll be just like her philandering father. No matter how often Troy professes his love for her alone.
When Olivia’s family falls on hard times, Troy will do anything to help. Even wed for the sake of their good name. But he knows Liv balks at being forced into marriage. Though Troy’s never wanted anything more than to have Olivia by his side, must he set her free to finally capture her heart?
