Today I am thrilled to officially unveil the front cover to my upcoming release with Soul Mate Publishing, entitled “Beside Still Waters“.

McKayla thought she had it all. Then she met Clay and realized love was sharing life’s adventures.

“Beside Still Waters” is my eighth published book, my sixth novel, and fifth book offered by Soul Mate Publishing. It is a shift away from some of my other stories, in that it is a Christian romance without the blended sub-genre mixtures. That makes it a clean read without being predictable or overly sweet. There are plenty of support characters to keep the action going strong. Anyone who knows me knows Christian and time travel are my two favorite genres to read, and conversely, to write. So I am exceptionally proud to introduce “Beside Still Waters”.

Here is a little about this story:

Top Journalist and corporate climber, McKayla Buchanan, is sent to a remote California mountain camp for inner-city, at-risk teens. Accustomed to political corruption and high-society drama assignments, she is suddenly a fish out of water. At Camp In As Much, she meets eight hostile and distrustful teens, assorted volunteers and rescued horses—and Clay.
Clay Michaels is the man who founded Camp In As Much and made it the success it is now. His hope for the highly recommended journalist is to come and write a feature to send seeds out to form other camps like his nationwide. He never considered the reporter would turn out to be a lovely woman, or for him to have such an attraction to her.
Between McKayla’s worldly experience and Clay’s strong faith, they form a partnership to help with the endless challenges the kids present. While McKayla’s assignment is supposed to be temporary, it isn’t long before she and Clay are each wishing it could last longer. A serious situation will force McKayla to decide if she can give up her worldly ways and place her faith in the same higher source that earthy and godly Clay does.

“Beside Still Waters” is now available for pre-order on Amazon, with a deliver date of November 9th. Click here for the link to take you to Amazon: http://amzn.to/2dvkUEe

So are you wondering what the book is really about? Here is a short blurb:

Raven Koynes is a woman in hiding. Years ago she escaped to remote Gull Island Light Station, nestled far away in Lake Superior. She has carved out a life of peace and safety for herself. Until famed nature photographer, Sebastian Knight arrives–at the height of a nor’easter storm–to document the beauty of Gull Island. Unsavory treasure hunters also blow in with the storm, determined to find missing cargo from a sunken ship. And they are convinced Raven knows where its stashed. A power outage from the storm is the final threat.

Help arrives in the form of a stray German Shepherd Dog, who takes an immediate protective interest in Raven. He becomes her constant shadow and listening ear as she sorts out her growing–and conflicting–feelings for Sebastian and concern of the treasure hunter’s mounting impatience.

Meanwhile, Sebastian came to the island looking for treasure as well, in the form of photographs. While he isn’t so sure about a sunken boat and missing cargo, he only needs one look at Raven Koynes to know he’s found his own valuable treasure. One he hopes he can hang on to once she learns about his mysterious secret.

Now that Madeline, the resident ghost has found it out, it’s just a matter of time until Raven does too. And with the storm and power outage, no one is going anywhere any time soon.
