A Man She Can Trust

by Roxanne Rustand

A Man She Can Trust

Pregnancy is the last thing on her mind

After all, isn’t that one of the reasons Grant walked out on her last fall? He couldn’t wait for her practice to settle down to have kids. Not to mention, her husband couldn’t seem to commit to one woman. It seems next to impossible that one night of stupidity could lead to her becoming pregnant. She still can’t forgive him, but Jill has to tell Grant he’s going to be a father.

As if Grant’s return wasn’t hard enough, the man has provoked someone else—someone who won’t stop the phone calls, the threats.

As much as she hates it, Dr. Jill Edwards’s life may depend on her estranged husband.

Forclosed

Praise for the Mitzy Neuhaus Mysteries

A fun cozy mystery. The lead character, Mitzy Neuhause, is what one would get if Legally Blond were about real estate. She is well-intentioned, beautiful, slightly clueless, and really, really good at what she does – which is selling homes in Portland, Oregon.

The fun begins when she butts heads with a local commercial property real estate agent over a stunning and mysterious Victioran mansion.
The next thing you know Russian royal jewels are being discussed and the Russian mob may, or may not, be involved. Mitzy needs to keep her faith, her head, and her big, blonde, 80’s hair in place in order to bring everything to a happy ending.—Jane Wells, author of Glitter in the Sun

Foreclosed is a thoroughly entertaining and superbly plotted debut novel from Traci Hilton. The book approaches the genre of mystery from an unusual but extremely engaging setting: the world of real estate.

And alongside the book’s delightful protagonist Mitzy Neuhaus, the reader loses himself in the grandeur and enigmatic qualities of the stunning mansion that the author so authoritatively conveys.

The chemistry between Alonzo and Mitzy is apparent from their first encounter and adds a layer of tantalizing romance to the book; their chemistry is electric and their battle of wills really brings the book’s main plot to life.

But it is Mitzy who deserves the greatest plaudits. She is an emotionally engaging character with an incredible amount of depth; resourceful, polite, entrepreneurial and caring, she is the book’s main attraction and could quite easily sustain a lengthy series of mysteries that the book’s many readers would enjoy.

Finally, the author’s writing must receive its deserved praise. Often with light reads such as Foreclosed, the writing can be suspect. But Traci Hilton displays effortless control and command of language. A highly recommended read. –A. S. Anand author 2032

Breaking Pride

Heather Bixler

Breaking Pride

So many of us desire freedom – the freedom that is promised to us when we decide to follow Jesus. The freedom from the burden of our sin, the need to be “good enough”, anger, jealousy, and envy. Even though we are believers, we would be ashamed to say that we don’t always experience peace, contentment, and joy in our life. We are looking for the grace that God has so graciously given to us to be real in our life…

Breaking Pride is an audiobook based on one simple truth: In order to walk in God’s grace, we need to tear down the the walls of pride. A lot of believers, even though saved by God’s grace, are still walking in pride rather than walking in His grace. Knowing what pride is and learning to identify pride in your life is the first step to overcoming a life filled with pride. Pride is rooted in fear and leads to anger, jealousy, and envy.

Sin isn’t keeping us from having a relationship with the Lord, it’s our pride. So many of us long to have an authentic and REAL relationship with the Lord, and we long to have the fruit of the spirit filled in our heart. Our desire is to achieve these fruits through willpower. But we do not even realize that the pride that lives within our heart is what is blocking the fruit of the spirit from living within us.

In Breaking Pride, you will learn to identify different areas of pride in your life. Filled with encouragement, Breaking Pride will take you through a practical review of what pride may look like in your life… Let’s stop building walls of pride and start building the foundation of grace within our lives.

But the crucible of combat offers only the escape of death. A decade later, Aria uncovers a nuclear plot that threatens the heart of our very nation.

Wings: A Journey in Faith

WINGS: A Journey in Faith from the Earthly to the Heavenly is a compilation of stories—thoughts, musing, insights, revelations and guidance gathered from my experiences living as a Christian in Las Vegas.

The truths I find are not unique to Las Vegas; they’re just magnified here. We live in the middle of a desert. Survival here, whether in Red Rock Canyon or the casinos, is dependent upon preparedness, insight and wisdom. Learn quickly or die. Soar high or get crushed under foot.
