Layken Cohen's eighteenth year is proving to be the ultimate test of her resolve. — Following the death of her father, she is forced to move across the country after the start of her senior year. Just when she thinks all hope is lost, she meets her new neighbor, Will Cooper. An intriguing twenty-one year old with a passion for Slam Poetry. Through their similar pasts, Layken and Will form an immediate and intense connection. A connection neither of them knew they needed, until they found it.

Unfortunately for Layken, the cards just aren't in her favor. She is slammed to the core when a shocking revelation proves that a relationship between the two won't work.

It can't work.

Forced to interact on a daily basis, Layken and Will struggle to find a balance between that which keeps them apart and the feelings that pull them together.

And that's only the beginning.

Release Date:  9/1/2012
Publisher:  Bethany House

When Cassie Lowe goes to live with her sister in the years following the Civil War, she is reacquainted with a man who once saved her life, Tyler Atherton. But Cassie is no longer the lighthearted young woman he once knew. She is now a widow with a young daughter, and she is nursing the disappointments and hurts from a difficult marriage. Though she longs to open her heart again, she is bound by fear and mistrust.

Tyler has demons of his own. Still haunted by the knowledge that his father was murdered by Comanches, he puts all his focus on reclaiming his inheritance: the ranch stolen from his family as punishment for his fighting for the Confederacy. With his affection for Cassie growing, he longs to provide a home and future for her and her daughter.

Though yearning to pledge their love, both Cassie and Tyler struggle to conquer their fears. Will Indian attacks, post-war renegades, and the hardship of life on the Texas plains destroy their future? Or will they find the strength to surrender their wills to God...and embrace his perfect plan?

Wishing and Waiting until next Wednesday,

  2. Hi, I'm a new follower. I found you through the blog hop. Slammed sounds very intriguing. Why won't their relationship work? I might need to download it - plus, I love supporting indie authors.
