Sleeping through the Beauty
A family obligation forces Phillip into accepting a late Christmas Eve invitation, but what he doesn’t realize is that on this night, his life is going to change forever. A beautiful comatose woman will teach him the true meaning of life and the importance of not sleeping through the beauty of it all. While he waits for his sleeping beauty to awake from her coma, he has to face the fact that, if she does awaken, even though he has had time to fall in love with her, he will be a complete stranger to her.
Hearts on Fire
Have you ever wanted someone to look at you and see who you really are? That’s all Jordan has ever wanted, so when she meets Samuel and the sparks fly, it’s easy to become lost in the depths of his beautiful blue eyes. But something of her own past and what he is comes between them. Whilst she fights her attraction to him, Samuel is going to have to convince her that he does see her…really does see her.
The Beauty in the Beast
In our beloved fairy tales of old, Prince Charming always saves the damsel in distress. In our modern world, sometimes it’s the damsel herself who has to find a way to save her prince.
The Magic of Snow
When Sarah White meets the ruggedly handsome Staff Sergeant Charlie Prince, she discovers a man with a pure heart, but one hidden beneath a warrior’s façade. Before Charlie leaves with his unit for Afghanistan, he promises to stay in touch, but after nine months of exchanging letters and emails, he stops writing. Sarah waits in agonizing suspense, not knowing if the man she has fallen in love with has been killed in action or has just lost interest in her.
Magic is real, but it’s not for the fainthearted or nonbelievers. It takes true love to release it, and hard work and determination to keep it strong.
Falling for Cindy Fellars
Cindy Fellars is determined to keep her younger twin sisters out of the clutches of her evil stepmother, but it’s going to take grit, determination and maybe even a little help from an unlikely knight in shining business suit.
