Southern Sympathies

Andrea Boeshaar

Alec Crobett moves to Alabama to get a fresh start after a broken engagement. His new neighbor, Lydia, is a widow who has let her father-in-law, a corrupt preacher, rule her life and her finances. When he realizes Lydia is falling for Alec, he does everything in his power to break them up, to the point of burning his house down.

Between Lydia’s two children, who adore Alec and want Lydia to marry him, they manage to break free from her father-in-law’s control.

A Matter of Security

Kay Cornellius

Leslie Christopher has just landed a job she never thought possible. The job is important to her, and she wants to do it right. The job involved top security with NASA and there could be no security leaks. Since she had to be cleared by the FBI, she never thought anything of the agent showing up at her apartment telling her she needed to make copies of some of the material and get it to him. Meanwhile, Hampton Travis, working undercover for NASA, begins to have feelings for Leslie, but at this point he cannot tell her he is undercover.

As things get more complicated, Leslie cannot figure out who she should be trusting--the (supposed) FBI agent or Hampton Travis. She is beginning to fall for Hampton, but she isn’t sure she can trust him.

As time goes on, Leslie realizes she needs to find just who she can trust and what the FBI agent really wants with her. Things get exciting at the end as Leslie realizes what is taking place.

He is trying to make up for those things, but his father warns him to stay away from her. Chase is falling in love with her. Camara finds it hard to believe that Chase is being so nice to her. Is he just trying to set her up?

When his father realizes Chase is falling for Camara, he has another man that drives in mud runs, to do damage her truck to keep her from racing. This other man has beenwanting revenge for losing to Camara. What he does to her truck not only keeps her from racing, but may also injures her badly. Chases’ father did not intend for Camara to be injured. He knows he has gone too far. He asks for his son’s forgiveness and Camara’s familie’s, also.

It is now time for Camara to decide if she can forgive and exactly what her feelings for Chase are.

The connecting thread in these three entertaining stories is the south. All three authors are talented and presented authors with stories sure to warm the heart. I enjoy stories with a Christian theme. Christian Romance is a growing genre with a large following. I’ll be watching for more stories by these authors.
