Unexpected Holiday Blessings

Finding twin five-year-old boys on his doorstep isn’t the first surprise Reverend Benjamin Lahaye has faced lately. Emery Wilkes, the new schoolteacher the town has hired, turns out to be a very pretty woman—not the man they’d been expecting. And though the twins and Emmy are only boarding with Ben until Christmas, the arrangement feels all too natural.

Emmy has moved to Minnesota to put loss behind her. Marriage would mean forsaking her position and her purpose, and Ben is an honorable man who understands her refusal to wed. But as he gets closer to tracking down the little boys’ father, Emmy realizes just how much she wants their sweet temporary family to become permanent.

Reflecting on My Stories: Supportive Heroes

The release of my final novel this month has me feeling a bit nostalgic. As I look back on this story and the seven others I’ve had published, I’ve noted some commonalities. I’ve covered the role music plays in many of my stories and the endearing children in half of them. This week I’m focusing on my heroes, who are staunch supporters of my heroines.

In my debut novel, A Bride Opens Shop in El Dorado, California, the heroine, Elenora Watkins, opens a small mercantile across the street from a large, well-established mercantile owned by the hero, Miles Rutledge. Ellie is out to prove she can run a successful business on her own and has a hard time accepting the help Miles offers. Thankfully, he’s just as bent on convincing her she has nothing to prove because it’s evident to him she’s a bright, capable, creative woman.

Becky Martin, the heroine of my second Love Inspired Historical, A Home of Her Own, has a gentle, loving nature. She does a wonderful job caring for the ailing mother of the hero, James O’Brien. He, in turn, supports Becky in her dream of opening a bakery.

Flynt Kavanaugh, my civil engineer hero in Make-Believe Beau, champions Jessie Sinclair, the newly hired draftswoman at the irrigation company where he works. Callie Hunt discovers a love of woodworking when she’s asked to work alongside carpenter Chip Evans in Her Motherhood Wish, and he’s happy to help her learn the craft.

The heroine of Their Mistletoe Matchmakers, Lavinia Crowne, arrives in Sutter Creek determined to show her sister’s recently orphaned children the kind of lavish Christmas celebrations they’ll have when she takes them back to Philadelphia with her. She’s sure she can offer her nephew and nieces a better life than they would have in their small town.

Even though the children’s paternal uncle, Henry Hawthorn, is just as determined to provide a simple, faith-filled family celebration for the children and keep them in California, he does his best to support Lavinia in her plans while praying she’ll embrace the true meaning of Christmas.
