When Levi Boulter agrees to work for the FBI behind the scenes in Hollywood, he never plans on becoming an operative—or on keeping a deadly secret from the love of his life.

On the night he plans to propose to his girlfriend, Mahari Gillaspie, he’s attacked by a killer and thrown into fully operational status. Despite his lack of training, his job is to thwart a plan to assassinate the President’s wife, putting everyone he knows, including Mahari, in danger. He’s determined to keep the woman he loves safe, even if it means losing her forever.

When Mahari steps off the cruise ship she’s worked for months, she dreams of a future with Levi and an acupuncture practice of her own. Mahari’s faith in Levi is shattered when she stumbles upon Levi and a beautiful actress. Their relationship lays in ashes, but she feels called by God to silence her broken heart in order to treat Levi’s injuries after he’s injured in an explosion, but he slams the door on her efforts. Later, she’s plunged into the heart of the trouble when she finds Levi’s landlord murdered.

2. Out of The Ashes by Sandi Rog:


A stranger. A kiss. A shotgun wedding.

NATHANIEL WARD, wealthy entrepreneur, needs a wife. But he’s not interested in the preening, high-society women who are offered to him on a silver platter. He wants one woman, and one woman alone: the girl who gave him all the money in her reticule years ago when the Great Chicago Fire left him destitute. He sets out to find this woman and discovers she’s unattached. There’s only one problem, a shotgun wedding may be able to bind them, but will he ever be able to win her heart?

AMELIA E. TAYLOR blows a kiss to a street rat. Little did she know, years later that kiss would follow her to Green Pines Colorado. When a handsome stranger arrives in her hometown, she guards her heart from the stirrings this man ignites. Despite society’s disapproval of spinsterhood, she is determined not to marry, having witnessed first-hand the lack of love and horrors that accompany marriage. But will a shotgun wedding reveal blessings that arise out of the ashes?

3. Pandora's Deed (Goddess to Daughter Book 1) by Monica Mynk

Christian fiction, Christian booksYears ago in rural Dreyfus, Kentucky, seven fourth grade girls studied mythology at a small Christian school. Three bore names of goddesses, and the others took on goddess nicknames. Pretending divinity made them feel powerful until their teacher explained they could only attain true power through Christ. They promised to always be friends, following Jesus together. Then, life happened. They went their separate ways and fell deep into sin. The Goddess to Daughter Series explores their stories of redemption and love.

Meet Pandora, a.k.a. Savannah Barrett, a twenty-something college grad who can’t seem to land a good job or a good man. She fled her Dreyfus home to escape childhood bullies, and planned to stay away for good. Body image struggles have led her to a life of empty relationships. After yielding so many times to temptation, she believes no one could desire her for more.

Geoff Spencer, her former tormentor, is the man who could love her anyway. He cleaned up his life, stopped the bullying, and found Christ. When she inherits his farm, she returns to Dreyfus to claim the property and face her dreadful past. She never expects to claim his heart as well.

The property transfer unearths a mystery that some would prefer to stay buried—a tragedy that intertwines their families and plants Savannah in the way of a psychopath who’d rather dispose of her than expose the past. Can Geoff convince her that he’s changed, and she’s not only worthy of his love, but God’s love, too? And can they find answers from their past before it’s too late for her soul?

Cleaning with Essential Oils: A Naturally Clean & Chemical Free Home by Susan Elliott

Are you an essential oil fanatic? I have become one. I love using oils before I go to sleep. Every night I put frankincense, clary sage, rosemary and neroli oil on my sleep mask. I'm not sure it helps me sleep, but it does relax me. Word of warning, don't put it on the side that goes against your eyes. I did it by accident, and it burned! My eyes were watering for hours.

Essential oils are wonderful. I bought two sets from Amazon. The first was from calily. And, I am about ready to buy some more. I've used up a lot of them, between using them as a sleep aid, and room fresheners.

The other set I bought was from Majestic Pure Pharmaceuticals. Their frankincense is amazing. I found their scents to be pretty good, too. I know a lot of people prefer to use other oils like Young Living, and they are good. I just don't have the money to spend on higher priced oils. If you're using oils and want an affordable option try the ones on Amazon. I know these two brands are good. If you've found other oils you like, please let me know in the comments.

Are you reading Katy's book series? If not, you are missing something special. If you are, I have great news for you. Katy's new book, Mercy's Battle, is out. Katy is a resident of Texas, and a fantastic person. I've had the opportunity to speak with her via e-mail on multiple occasions, and she is an author who has time for other people, and likes to help out where she can. In fact, Katy has become a dear friend to me. I can't express how excited I am that she has a new book out. Don't hesitate to read her series. You won't be disappointed.

Mercy's Battle by Katy Huth Jones

As Prince Valerian and Merry flounder in the aftermath of their terrible losses, they must adjust to the changes that have been wrought upon their lives. Their sole comfort lies in the belief that their nemesis, Liall Guinness has perished and can no longer torment them.

But they are wrong. Liall Guinness is very much alive, and willing to sell his soul in order to achieve his vengeance.

As the threat of invasion looms, Valerian and his peers clash with the elders who are unwilling to embrace new ideas. If Valerian cannot convince them to change their minds, then despite having the great dragons on their side, the land will run with blood.

Upon a Clear Midnight by Monica Mynk

Jeannie Nelson and Trevor Harris are going through life in a fog. She lost her dad in a terrible accident; he lost his mom to cancer. She's working a meaningless job and living with a guy in a dead-end relationship; he was just fired from his preaching job after his wife left him following her very public affair.

Their worlds collide when her mom and his dad, both too physically and emotionally impaired to manage on their own, buy next-door homes that are part of a revival project in a forgotten Lafollette neighborhood.

When Jeannie and Trevor come to Lafollette for an extended visit to help each of their parents settle in their new homes, they find an unexpected path to renewal, friendship, and dare they hope—love? 

Mistletoe and Folly by Kelli Hughett

Can love redeem the folly of the past? 
Five years ago, Bryce Camden carved out a chunk of her still-beating heart. And he’s got the gall to walk into her theater? Julie’s Christmas wish this year: make Bryce—and all those painful memories—disappear.

After retiring from Major League Baseball, Bryce lands a coaching job at a school in Longmont, Colorado. Enter Julie Jordan and old feelings he can’t ignore. Had he ever stopped loving her?

When the theater is vandalized, Julie’s dreams of directing the Christmas musical come crashing down, along with her hopes to raise enough money to keep the school open. When deeper malice is discovered behind the vandalism, they’ll each face a decision that could change the course of their lives. A Christmas story about the miracle of love in the face of past mistakes.
