The Perfect Match

When I first started to read The Perfect Match, it seemed as though the author was going to break new ground in Christian contemporary romance. Susan May Warren initially presents readers with a professional woman holding a leadership role in a male-dominated profession along with a romance in which ...

Surrender

Surrender is Lori LeBlanc's first book and the first in a series set in the small Texas town of Cedar Point. It's an inspirational romance that is heavy on the inspiration. The best thing about the book is that it is a real page turner; Ms LeBlanc certainly knows how to move a story. But it had too ...
