I'll Be Home for Christmas

 

Four best-selling authors of Christian romance--including Allie--bring you heartwarming stories filled with holiday cheer and romance under the mistletoe. Allie's story is "A Brilliant Christmas," the fifth installment in the Sweet City Hearts series. Zoe Walters pours her heart and soul into the community arts center she runs. Her kids could benefit so much from the brilliant talents of animator Nigel Langdon—if he weren’t such a legendary grump. The next six weeks of his artist-in-residency look like they’ll ruin Zoe’s Christmas for sure. And certainly, things get off to a rocky start until Zoe discovers the great big heart—and the deep hurt—Nigel’s been hiding under that crusty exterior. It turns out Nigel can see through to Zoe’s deepest wounds as well. When the arts center is threatened, Nigel and Zoe come together not only to save the organization, but to discover a love and the brilliant Christmas no one ever expected.

When she discovers charming, charismatic barista Nate—otherwise known as “Señor Fabulous”—she knows God’s led her to exactly what she needs.

Book Three of the Sweet City Hearts Series

ASIN #B01GPCEVI8

 

Opening a Christian coffeehouse in Seattle was Maggie Black’s dream. So when banker William Grey denies her loan, her plans for “Higher Grounds” get put on hold. Then Mr. Grey (who drinks tea, of course) explains that if Maggie takes his small-business seminar, the bank might reconsider the application. It might take the help of her fabulous coffee, but Maggie decides she could stay awake in class long enough to learn something. Besides, Grey’s stuffy facade and velvety British accent might make things interesting. Can a formal, dashing banker teach this vibrant entrepreneur a thing or two about faith and perfect blends? Or is it the other way around? This sweet and tender romantic comedy was first published under Love Inspired’s Steeple Hill Cafe line.

A cartoon character is ruining Lindy’s love life. She’s nearly famous as the voice of Maggie Hoot, the wise-cracking owl from the hit animated series “Arborville.” But as soon as any cute or eligible or even breathing guy realizes what she does for a living, the relationship is over before it starts. Can a smart, educated, funny woman get past the third date with a nice Christian man before having to give a hoot-owl impersonation? Can the handsome, charming television executive sent to evaluate—or cancel—her show win her heart without tanking her career? This wholesome faith-filled romantic comedy was originally published under Love Inspired’s Steeple Hill Cafe line and is the second book in the Sweet City Hearts series.
