This week I’m shining the spotlight on
Wedded for the Baby, an August release from
Love Inspired Historical author Dorothy Clark.

Learn more about the story below, and then scroll
down to enter the giveaway for a print copy.

His Family of Convenience 

For widower and ex-doctor Trace Warren, a fresh start in Whisper Creek comes with a catch: to save his home and apothecary shop, Trace must remarry. While making Katherine Fleming his wife is simple enough, he refuses to fall in love again. But keeping his distance from the kind, beautiful woman and the infant she brings with her is dangerously difficult…

Katherine promised to protect the baby left in her care, and a marriage of convenience to Trace is the only way to do that. But all too soon, Trace possesses Katherine’s heart, even as he still carefully guards his own. With hopes of turning their arrangement into a true love match, can Katherine convince Trace to forgive himself for his past mistakes and embrace his new family?

Road Trip

I’m writing this while sitting on a patio in Colorado Springs with a view of Pikes Peak in the distance. Talk about relaxing. Wow!

This trip came about when Carl and I learned about a reunion being held here by the ministry he served with back in the early 80s. I read the email, knew immediately that this event was something I wanted my husband to experience and suggested we make a road trip out of it, which would enable us to visit with several friends en route.

We left California, made the l-o-n-g drive across Nevada, said a quick hello to the Great Salt Lake as we crossed the northwest corner of Utah, enjoyed the varied scenery along the southern edge of Wyoming and turned south into Colorado. After three and a half days in our trusty rental car, we were mighty glad to arrive at our destination.

Colorado Springs is a great place from which to view the Rockies. As a California native who lives at the base of the majestic Sierras, I’m partial to that range, but I have to admit that the Rockies are mighty impressive. This mountain gal is soaking in the beauty.

    My favourite mountain range has to be The Great Dividing Range. To reach the town where I live high up on the plateau you have to climb up this very, very steep range. The views from the top are spectacular. Early pioneers had a tough time of it. (It’s tricky even now.)

  • Peggy Jarvis says:

    Mine is going to be near Calgary, Canada in the Rockies because my granddaughter is going to living there. She and her husband are moving there to plant a church, so I am going to be visiting often.

  • Lynne M Feuerstein says:

    Thanks Keli for this post and offering Dorothy Clark’s latest book. (She’s one of my favorites! 🙂 ) I would say the Rockies would be my favorite. Mostly because of the location(lovely part of the country) and the beauty of them.

  • I have to say that my favorite mountain range would have to be The Sierra’s as well. I miss them a lot!!! We have been in OK for 20 years, but that mountain range is in my heart! I’m sure there are other more impressive mountain ranges in the world, but to me the Sierra’s are HOME. I’m in a quandry whether I want to be by mountains or by the ocean when God takes me to heaven 😉 I’m sure he will have the perfect spot for me and I need not worry, but those are two of my favorite places 🙂

  • Michelle Corning says:

    My favorite mountain range would be the one in the Annapolis Valley. Although I am told they are more like foothills.

  • Rachael Clemons says:

    The Great Smokey Mountains. Their beauty amazes me everyday.

  • Jessica says:

    Smoky mountains because they are just beautiful and that is where I had my honeymoon so the hold special memories for me

  • Stacia moody says:

    Appalachian Mountains

  • Jane says:

    Got to be the Rockies saw them all the time while visiting relatives in Montana and lived in Butte for awhile. Growing up in Northern California puts the Cascades in 2nd place.

  • Nancy Faivre says:

    We visited the Smoky Mountains a few years ago and just loved them and the area!The B&B we stayed at was set on the side of one and had a wrap around deck where you could sit and watch the birds, and just enjoy looking at the beauty of the mountains as they changed with the morning fog.That was before the fires, but I’d love to go back some day and visit again.

  • Michelle Stockert says:

    The Rockies. I was born in Denver and lived up in the mountains for the first 9 years of my life. I live in the Black Hills now, but love the Rockies.

  • Marilyn R says:

    So glad you and Carl could attend this reunion of his earlier ministry. I’ve enjoyed your pictures on FB.

    I enjoy The Great Smokey Mountains. The beauty and rural areas of residents.

  • Kay Bossard says:

    For me it would have to be the Great Smoky Mts! It is just beautiful there. Wish we could be in a cabin there right now!

  • Fedora says:

    I’ve only been a little in the Rocky Mountains, and they are gorgeous. We did some exploring near Banff and Jasper parks in Canada, and wow! Would love to go back 🙂

    Thanks for sharing some of your trip highlights–so glad you and Carl could make the drive!

  • Robin in NC says:

    Great Smoky Mountains in NC!!!

  • Maryann says:

    I love the Olympic Mountains in Washington state. I love their majestic beauty and snow capped peaks.

  • Keli Gwyn says:

    Thanks for your great comments. I’m enjoying them but due to all the fun I’m having, I won’t be able to respond individually like I usually do. I appreciate your understanding.

  • Brenda W says:

    My favorite mountains are ones with roads safely at the bottom….. and lots of green trees. I like the Great Smoky Mountains.

  • I have only been to a couple of Mountain Ranges but I must say I love the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee! Such a beautiful place with rich culture somewhat similar to where I live here in Kentucky!

  • Trixi says:

    We have traveled over the Rocky Mountains four times (Moving from Oregon to Illinois and back)! It’s definitely spectacular!

    While I love that, I think my favorite is our “local” Cascade Range mountains. There’s just something about their majesty! I especially love when I’m traveling up to Washington to see my sister-in-law and I see Mt. Rainer in the distance. It’s snow peak is a site to behold 🙂

    I’m glad you are able to do some traveling with Carl. Sounds like you found the perfect road trip for both of you! I’m loving all the pictures you are posting on Facebook, it’s almost like taking the adventure with you guys!

    Thanks for the giveaway chance, Keli!

  • Melinda says:

    Appalachian Mountains because that is near to where I grew up. Hope to see the Rockies one day.
