Merry Christmas! Welcome to the first blog in this Christmas Round-Robin!

Here’s how it works: At each author’s blog post, you will find a question that can be answered by checking out the free Amazon preview of their book. Provide the answer at this Google Form. Note: You must answer the questions for every author in the round -robin to be considered to win the $300 first place, $150 second place or $75 third place Amazon gift cards. At the end of my post is a link to the next blog, who will provide a link to the next blog, etc., to the very end.

I’m thrilled to get the chance to tell you about my book Christmas Star Sapphire. This book is in the second generation of my fan-favorite series, The Jewel Series, but you can read it without having read the rest of the series.

Joe Westcott is a Cru minister at an Alabama university where Madeline Viscolli is getting her Masters degree. Joe has a personal rule against dating any student, for any reason, but his attraction to Madeline makes him start to reconsider that hard and fast rule. Until he discovers that Madeline is not just a Viscolli, but is one of THE Viscollis.

Long ago, Joe made a decision to serve God well removed from his family’s life of wealth and luxury. Madeline represents everything he left behind.

It was a joy to write this book and delve into these characters. To date, it is one of my favorite books I’ve written. My husband’s cousin is a Cru minister, and it is our pleasure to donate a portion of every sale to Cru ministries. As parents of a college senior, we know how vital campus ministeries are to the students that attend colleges all over the world.

Let’s begin this scavenger hunt! Go to the book on Amazon at this link.

Find the answer to this question:

What is the name of Joe’s boat? 

When you have the answer, fill out this form and head on to the next blog!

Thank you so much for visiting! The next author on the tour is Carrie Turansky, who is telling us all about her Christmas book Snowflake Sweethearts. You can find it at this link. Remember that the round-robin will end on December 16th at 11:59 PM EST!

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Hello! Welcome to Monday morning coffee and chat!

This is the third week I’m giving away a full set of the Jewel Series books to someone who has asked me a question about any one of my books (and about me!) But, I’m still taking questions, so ask away! The link is in the sidebar.

Here is this week’s chat!

Today I’m answering the question:

What was the first book you ever published?

Love the question! I hope you learn more about my Jewel Series through my response:

The Jewel Series Refreshed!

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

I am so excited to show you the new covers for The Jewel Series! As we approached the 5th anniversary of publishing Sapphire Ice, we felt it was time to give the Jewels a facelift. As you can see, our cover artist did an amazing job bringing the sisters to life!

Some more changes are coming for the series — Sapphire Ice is now be free instead of Greater Than Rubies (this will take time to propagate through Amazon’s system, but it is currently free everywhere else.) I also edited and revised Sapphire Ice — not touching the original story, but bringing the writing up to my current standards (it had those first book blues). Christmas Star Sapphire, until now, has only been available at Amazon. It is now available everywhere ebooks are sold!

Click each book cover below to access that book’s page and find out where you can purchase them! (Note, the paperbacks have not been updated yet).

THE BLURB:

Six clean-read New Adult contemporary romance novels by Amazon best-selling Christian authors (including USA Today best-selling author, Staci Stallings) in one collection. Prepare to go on a journey to the crossroads, where pasts fall away and new lives begin. There will be romance, suspense, and real issues facing women today. Novels include …

ONE NIGHT WITH A ROCK STAR, by Chana Keefer
It’s Anne of Green Gables Meets Rattle & Hum. Worlds collide.
When Esther was a young teen with frizzy hair and too-skinny legs, Sky’s music soothed her through awkwardness and pain. During the Glam-Rock 80s, Esther is a College Journalism student and fledgling Print Model. One chance meeting with her Superstar crush rocks both their worlds.
Will Esther’s deep roots in Family and Faith keep her feet on the ground when a tornado named Sky blows her world apart?

christmas star sapphire smallCHRISTMAS STAR SAPPHIRE, by Hallee Bridgeman
Madeline Viscolli meets Joe Westcott during a campus ministry meeting as she begins graduate school in Alabama. Joe’s personal rule of not dating students starts to fade until he discovers Madeline’s destiny lay in running her father’s massive corporation. After rejecting wealth and all its trappings, Joe struggles against the attraction he feels for Madeline. Madeline knows she loves Joe but is not willing to throw away her destiny of taking over the helm of Viscolli Enterprises. A Christmas Eve funeral washes all Joe’s plans away. Will their love succumb to the rising tide caused by their differences in lifestyles, or will raging seas calm and allow them to sail off into the sunset?”

ONE AMONG MEN, by Connie Almony
Samantha Hart’s job requires she live with 500 hard-partying college guys. She can handle the 499, but it only takes one to lead her to danger.
Though Samantha wants to find godly purpose in her life, she is forced to take a position as a resident director of an all-male party dorm at Maryland State University, essentially babysitting pampered party boys rather than changing lives. What she doesn’t expect is to fall for the engaging undergrad who seems to be helping her on the sly. That is when he isn’t hanging out with the resident drug dealer.

PRINCESS, by Staci Stallings (USA Today Best-selling author)
When Heather Nolan learns she will no longer be able to pursue her college degree unless she finds a job, she is so desperate for funds, she takes a job tutoring the college’s all-star basketball player, Anthony Russell. She hates him. He hates English. But all is not as it seems as both of them will soon come to understand…

HARD TO FIND, by Traci Tyne Hilton
Isaac Daniels screwed up his romance with Jane Adler, and then a few more. Starting over at a Bible School in Sweden probably wasn’t the best idea. Especially when he manages to lose the pretty girl with the big green eyes, her crazy sister, and his boss’s diabetic nephew.
If he can find the missing students, he can probably keep his job, but the real risk in this hunt is losing his heart.

SHATTERED ROSE, by Tammy L. Gray
Avery Nichols knows how to wear the mask. Perfect student, perfect daughter and perfect friend. Nobody would ever guess that inside Avery is a prisoner to her own self-loathing. Then she meets him…and everything changes. Handsome, charming and self-assured, Jake Matthew sweeps Avery off her feet in an effortless fashion. Avery knows that Jake is everything she needs and all she has ever wanted. She would destroy herself to be loved by him…until he walks away. Broken and lost, Avery meets Parker. His genuine, caring nature reaches past the mask and the shattered pieces of her heart slowly begin to heal. But just when Avery starts to feel whole again, she faces the impossible truth. Jake never really left.

CROSSROADS — exclusively on Amazon for a limited time!
