When Emily McFadden first met Steve Callaghan, her only goal had been to gain his permission for his son to come over to play with hers. When she realizes that he is in need of help caring for his four sons, she decides to see if he’d be interested in making a deal. She’d help him with his boys, and he’d help her with the repairs to her aging house. Steve makes it clear he’s not in the market for a wife which is just fine with her. She has her own reasons for not wanting to get involved romantically.
Steve has no interest in a relationship after having dealt with his ex-wife and her rejection of their boys. However, he finds himself drawn to Emily as she showers his boys with love in the same way she does with her own four children. But is it just gratitude or something more? Is it possible that God has a different plan for their families than what they’d thought they wanted?
Stayed tuned for the next Christian romance – A Change of Heart – in the The Callaghans & McFaddens series coming July 2016.

Waiting on Love
by Leah Atwood

Scott Lamar never meant to abandon his daughter and pregnant girlfriend, but life happened, and college provided a means of escape. All that changed when he found faith in God, and now he wants to make up for his past mistakes. He concocts a plan that sounds crazy to most, but he pushes forward, determined to be a part of his daughter’s life.
Waiting on Love is a bonus Christmas novella in the Modern Convenience series. It can be read as a standalone, but you can read the story of Tanya’s brother, Archer, in Calling Love.
