From Kim: I love K-Love cruisin’! I went on my first K-Love cruise in 2008 and have gone every year since. But 2016 was extra special. For one, we were cruising with our pals Rose and Chester—always more fun when you have a friend along; and for two, we booked a tour of the Grand Cayman Turtle Farm. I fell in love with green sea turtles, and I knew I wanted to feature them in a story somehow.
Destination: Romance gave me that opportunity. My heroine, Tamiera, is a marine biologist determined to take sea turtles off the endangered species list by protecting their environment and nesting grounds. The hero, Joe, comes to Grand Cayman with the intention of building a new resort hotel, and of course he chooses the very stretch of ground where Tamiera’s sea turtles nest. Instant conflict!

I am happy to share my 6th published novella with you which releases June 15! The collection is called Destination: Romance, and each story takes us on a romantic trip. My story is set in Jamaica, then goes to Kentucky, then back to Jamaica.
Here’s some of the backstory of how it came about. Kim Sawyer and her husband Don had invited my husband and me to go on a K-Love cruise with them, and we were finally able to plan it for January 2016. Since Kim and I had been praying for each other’s writing for years, I said we should write a story about our cruise, so we brainstormed one night and came up with two ideas. My story is set in Jamaica where my oldest daughter went on a mission trip twice while in college. Her own daughter (our granddaughter Natalie), went on a mission trip a couple years ago while in high school. My other daughter and I have also been on mission trips, so it seemed like a novel place to start a romance–going on a K-Love cruise mission trip! Kim will tell you about her “romantic destination” in a couple weeks. Continue reading
Today’s blog is a book review of two books by one of my favorite authors–MaryAnn Diorio–The Madonna of Pisano and A Sicilian Farewell. I love her writing and her sweet spirit for Christ, and wanted to finish this second book sooner, but with two other writing projects of my own going on, I read until after eleven last night to finish the second novel. I had to know what happened to Luca Tonetta!
But, I am getting ahead of myself! In The Madonna of Pisano we meet Maria Landro, a young woman with a child but no husband. Nowadays that can be common, but in the 1880s in Sicily, it was very rare and was treated with shame. To her family’s credit, they still supported and loved her and her child, although she told no one the father’s name. I don’t want to give away the story, but can tell you there is confession and forgiveness by the end of the tale. Continue reading
