When Annie journeys to Alaska to visit Finn, she is taken aback by the frosty reception she receives from his sister. Fearful of losing her role in the baby’s life, his sister sees Annie as a threat.

Evangeline Kelly

Evangeline Kelly is the pen name I use to write contemporary Christian romance books. I married my husband (my perfect bad boy hero) in my early forties so I understand the longings of a single woman desiring love, as well as the contentment and sweetness of marriage.

And now, a little bit about me. When I was a kid, I had two dreams. One was to work with at risk youth and the other was to write books. After pursuing my passion of working with foster children for over twenty years, I finally decided to pursue my childhood dream of writing. My grandma kept all of my short stories in a box as a keepsake, and I read them occasionally when I need a good laugh. Not only do I love to write, I enjoy the pleasure of sitting down with a good book. I’ve always said that a good book is way better than any movie or television show!

I’ve witnessed suffering in my line of work, but I’ve also witnessed God’s redeeming love. A good Christian romance features both hardship and delight. My hope is that my stories not only entertain, but encourage, and most of all, that they bring glory and honor to my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

No Time for Detours: A Sweet City Romance (The No Brides Club Book 7) Kindle Edition

What happens when you meet Mr. Right at exactly the WRONG time?

Ava Lewis can take care of herself. Thank you. If only she didn’t need to keep proving that to her well-meaning, but sometimes overbearing family. But now that she’s been provisionally accepted into NYU’s law school, she’s on her way to dispelling their doubts and making her career goal come true. There’s only one problem. To afford that goal, she has to make ends meet.

That’s where Nick Jansen and his unexpected job offer come in. When five-year-old twins are left in his care while their guardian goes off on a month-long honeymoon, he knows he can’t handle the rabble-rousers on his own. Ava, with her early childhood education experience, to the rescue.

After a broken engagement, and repeated words of discouragement from his jaded mother, Nick has accepted that he’s meant to be alone—with the world better off for it. But as the kids warm to Ava, so does he, and he starts to feel some of the ice around his heart melting away. However, when Ava’s full admission to law school is jeopardized, Nick’s inherent need to fix things threatens her independence and her dream of carving out the life she wants.

What it will take to get Ava and Nick off their career-collision course and let love be their guide? Join them in finding the answer in this opposites-attract, single-dad sweet romance.

The No Brides Club is a fun, sassy, and heart-warming series featuring sophisticated women and the men they fall for.

By Jo Grafford

Mountain of Fire: Sweet, Small Town Romantic Suspense (Heart Lake Book 10) Kindle Edition

How to convince a woman you just met that a marriage of convenience is the next best step…

Wayne Whitaker (or Chief Lighthorse, as his tribe calls him) is constantly putting out fires on his poverty-stricken, crime-ridden reservation. Many of the old-timers on his council fear it’s because he’s too young, too inexperienced, and too single to run both the tribe and his family’s rodeo business.

While assisting a lovely seamstress on the side of the road, it’s not love at first sight for Wayne. He’s too old for stuff like that. But it’s the beginning of something special that he’s convinced could turn into more.

When he discovers the single mother and her son have fallen on hard times, he sees the perfect opportunity for them to help each other out. He’s as surprised as she is when she says yes to his impromptu marriage proposal. Does it mean she feels a spark of attraction in return? Or will his growing feelings for her end up being yet another fire he’ll have to put out?

Things are looking up when she lands her own fixer-upper TV show where she will design & renovate old homes across the country.

Which is why he’s so conflicted when Issy surprises him with a camera crew and an ex-girlfriend he hasn’t seen in nearly two decades.

No one else has any idea Valerie and Evan dated, and they plan to keep it that way.

But as they tear down the walls of his old farmhouse, they can’t help but uncover new layers of their shared history. Will they build a new connection on an old foundation, or is this one restoration that isn’t built for a second chance?

But after witnessing her son’s frightening anxiety attack, he’s convinced the Newmans are where they need to be, as long as he can control his pull toward Macie.

By Lisa Loucks-Christenson, Sweet Romance Book Bargains

September 30, 2023

Hi. I’m Sandra Ardoin, the author of A Horseman’s Mission, the second book in my Hidden Veil Hometown series. For more information about my books, check out my website at It’s where you can also sign up to receive my newsletter. 

What is your best compliment you’ve received from readers or fans?

I write Christian fiction, so the greatest compliment I’ve had was from a woman who read A Musician’s Heart, Book One in the Hidden Veil Hometown series. She told me how much that story spoke to her, which is wonderful to hear when it comes to the desire to minister to God’s people through fiction. She didn’t go into detail, but part of the hero’s journey involves being open to where God is leading and not rejecting His will because we think it isn’t something we want to do.

Do you know the ending of your books when you write the opening chapters?

Well, I write romance, so I always know it will end with a happily-ever-after. My job is to get the characters to that point. I’ll usually have a vague idea of how that will happen, but I’m not an in-depth plotter.

Without sharing the ending, why did you choose the HEA or HFN ending in your latest book?

Great question. The heroine in A Horseman’s Mission deals with an intense fear for her son, who suffers from anxiety attacks. The hero suffers from guilt over his past behavior regarding his brother. I knew the climax would need to stoke that fear and guilt, so I put them in a position where that would happen and they would need to work through their issues.


Sandra will be an upcoming guest on Lisa’s Walk The Talk Show Sweet Romance Book Bargains Segment. Watch the newsletters, or check here: www.LisaLC.Live
