Guarding Her Heart by #KimberlyRaeJordan

Lindsay Hamilton has watched as people around her have fallen in love and gotten married. She knows she needs a change in her life, but she also knows it doesn’t involve romance or love, let alone marriage. When their church announces a two-week mission’s trip to the Philippines, Lindsay feels that this may be the change she needs. Plus, it will give her the opportunity to see the world beyond the one she’s lived in her whole life. The only problem is her mother. Having almost lost one child, Lindsay’s mother is distraught at the thought of her only daughter trekking halfway around the world by herself. In order to give her mother peace of mind, Lindsay agrees to allow a bodyguard to accompany her.

Than Miller is the consummate ladies’ man. He loves to spend time with them and to make them feel good about themselves. Unfortunately, that very approach to life has made the one woman he’s most interested in hold him at arm’s length. When her older brother comes to BlackThorpe Security to hire a bodyguard for a trip she’s taking, Than quickly agrees. Surely he’ll have the opportunity to convince Lindsay to change her opinion of him during their trip together.

Though Lindsay has accepted Than’s role as her bodyguard, she’s the one in charge of guarding her heart. And guard it she will. But when disaster strikes and she finds herself completely out of her element, Lindsay has to face her own vulnerabilities. As her faith in God deepens, will she be able to let down her guard enough to let Than in?

Usually, Than has no trouble keeping his emotions detached from his job, but this time around he’s finding it more and more difficult. And it’s not just because he’s responsible for Lindsay. In the midst of disaster, he comes face to face with a faith he’s never experienced before. Will he give his heart to God even as he waits for Lindsay to give hers to him?

Or will the experiences Than and Lindsay shared on the trip be just a memory when they get back home?

Leaving Carolina by #TamaraLeigh

They say you can take the girl out of the South, but you can’t take the South out of the girl. This girl begs to differ.

Piper Wick left her hometown of Pickwick, North Carolina twelve years ago, shook the dust off her feet, ditched her drawl and her family name, and made a new life for herself as a high-powered public relations consultant in Los Angeles. She’s even engaged to be engaged to the picture-perfect U.S. Congressman Grant Spangler.

Now all of Piper’s hard-won happiness is threatened by a reclusive uncle’s bout of conscience. In the wake of a health scare, Uncle Obadiah Pickwick has decided to change his will, leaving money to make amends for four generations’ worth of family misdeeds. But that will reveal all the Pickwick’s secrets, including Piper’s.

Though Piper arrives in Pickwick primed for battle, she is unprepared for Uncle Obe’s rugged, blue-eyed gardener. So just who is Axel Smith? Why does he think making amends is about more than just making restitution? And why, oh why, can’t she stay on task? With God’s help, Piper is about to discover that although good PR might smooth things over, only the truth will set her free.
