Christian Romance - Women's Fiction

All Books Reduced to $1.99 - today only!

Traci Wooden-Carlisle began writing poetry and short stories as soon as she was able to form words on paper. She used that as a way of creating worlds, as well as, to communicate with God. A native of Los Angeles, California, she grew up attending United Methodist Church under the leadership of a pastor whose heart was for youth. Once she finished college she found herself at a loss. She felt caught in the transition between childhood and adulthood. She surrounded herself with saints and volunteered her services as a graphic artist. Through the early-morning prayer, all night Friday prayer and 3-day shut-ins she started on her journey toward her most desired gift, an intimate relationship with God.

Today, Mrs. Wooden-Carlisle lives in San Diego with her husband, Mr. Carlisle. She teaches fitness classes, runs a jewelry and craft business, and is currently writing the next installment in her Christian-fiction series.

Four lives connected by one secret. The key to unlocking the answers…forgiveness.

Elder Paige Morganson has come back from the brink of suicide and dealt with most of the anger and pain from her past. Now, she serves as a well-loved minister at her church, and full-time writer and women’s motivational speaker.

As she juggles these roles, she is also artfully dodging her pastor’s attempts at matchmaking. Her world is rocked when a door she thought closed forever opens once again, spilling secrets even she was unaware of.

Elder Brandon Tatum has finally stepped out from under his father’s shadow and is looking forward to what God has in store for his new ministerial career. He has no time for stubborn, golden-eyed beauties who haunt his dreams.

Widower Mason Jenson’s top priority is his daughter, Vivian. When a near-fatal accident jeopardizes her livelihood, his search for a living donor brings him face to face with a beautiful, golden-eyed woman who looks oddly familiar.

Vivian’s grandmother, Victoria Branchett, would also do anything to ensure the health of her granddaughter. But in her mind, Mason Jensen is not to be trusted. Especially since she believes he is to blame for her daughter’s death.

As the years of secrets binding these four together begin to unravel, will they overcome their anger and prejudices to find the peace and love they have long desired?

After a year of upheaval, things are finally falling into place for everyone. Victoria’s marriage to Richard is on the mend, and a long-kept secret has given her the family she has always longed for.

A pawn, a queen, a knight and a promise stolen by secrets.

Grace Melanie has been a pawn in her mother’s machinations all of her life. After years of lies and manipulation, she learned to keep to herself, rejecting offers of friendships and dates in order to keep others from being caught up in her mother’s deceitful web.

Now she finally has a small taste of freedom. With it has come the blessings of friendship--and the responsibility of keeping those friends off her mother’s radar.

And love? That was not in the plans. Until she met the handsome man assigned to take care of her.

The first time Marcus Miller was assigned to watch over the Morganson family, he felt an overwhelming need to protect the girl with the sad golden eyes. When he saw Melanie again four years later, he was awestruck by the beautiful woman she’d become.

Now, he’s been asked to look after her again—only this time, his own heart is at stake.

As he enters her world he can’t shake the feeling that he has just become another player in an elaborate game that no one is supposed to win . . .
But God.
