Welcome to a Place Where Love Abides

Experience the splendor of love with four sweet romances-each one the story of hearts and homes renewed-authored by some of the leading names in Christian romance fiction.

“THE QUEEN OF THE WORLD AND THE HANDYMAN” by Barbara Jean Hicks (An Unlikely Prince, All That Glitters, Loves Me, Loves Me Not)

But a near-tragedy reveals that nothing is as it seems to be-including the pretend engagement that no longer feels pretend.

“BESIDE THE STILL WATERS” by Barbara A. Curtis

Interior designer K.C. McKenzie wants to restore her late husbands family farmhouse, as well as her memories. But the new owner, Chicago architect Raleigh Kincaid, refuses to sell. When he enters a restoration contest, however, Raleigh finds that he needs K.C.-in more ways than one.

“HOME FOR THE HEART” by Shari MacDonald

(Love On the Run, A Match Made in Heaven, The Perfect Wife)
