The Message in a Bottle Romance Collection

About This Book

Historical | Novella | Paperback | eBook

Hope reaches across the ages…

In the year 834 AD, an Irish monk flings a bronze bottle into the sea, praying the Latin word etched onto the vessel will reach a hurting soul and restore faith. Little does he know the far-reaching, eternal impact it will have throughout the ages… The Message in a Bottle Romance Collection follows the legacy of this bottle’s contents as it touches five women’s lives in unique ways.

From the misty shores of Ireland to a famed river voyage on the Thames, it travels. From the perils of post-Colonial New York to the struggles during the Civil War, it changes hearts. Finally, washing ashore at a Victorian-era hotel, it delivers one final message of hope and love.

The Lady and the Lionheart

About This Book

Virginia, 1890

Raised amid the fame and mystique of the Big Top, Charlie Lionheart holds the audience in the palm of his hand. But while his act captivates thousands, it’s away from the spotlight where his true heart lies. Here he humbly cares for his pride of lions as if they were his brothers, a skill of bravery and strength that has prepared him for his most challenging feat yet—freeing an orphaned infant from the dark bondage of a sideshow. A trade so costly, it requires his life in exchange for hers, leaving him tarnished by the price of that choice.

As the circus tents are raised on the outskirts of Roanoke, nurse Ella Beckley arrives to tend to this Gypsy girl. All under the watchful eye of a guardian who not only bears a striking resemblance to the child, but who protects the baby with a love that wraps around Ella’s own tragic past, awakening a hope that goodness may yet reign. When their forbidden friendship deepens, Charlie dares to ask for her heart, bringing her behind the curtain of his secret world to reveal the sacrifice that gave hope to one little girl—boldly showing Ella that while her tattered faith is deeply scarred, the only marks that need be permanent are his own.

Contemporary | Short Novel | Paperback | eBook

About This Book

To get to the girl he loves, Riley Kane must head off on a road trip with the
father he never knew. Then pray for a miracle.

Most teens would love to have a pro surfer for a dad. Just not Riley. Abandoned as a kid, he hates the sound of the ocean and the man who gave himself to it.

When the eighteen-year-old learns that his best friend is stranded at a New Mexico hospital as her father fights for his life, Riley hits the highway to head east. But when his Jeep breaks down before he even leaves California, he must rely on the one man he despises to get to the girl who needs him the most. And when it comes to the surfer with the Volkswagen van and dog-eared map, a thousand miles may–or may not–be enough to heal the past.

A story of new beginnings and second chances.
