There is not a better escape from reality than to read a good book with a good romantic thread running through it. Books are an inexpensive way for us to take a vacation to far away places and live vicariously through the characters.
August is READ A ROMANCE MONTH! I’m reading a good book right now called “Signs of Love” by Kimberly Rae Jordan. It’s book two of the Christian romance series “Black Thorpe Security”, a spin-off from the Christian romance series, “The McKinley’s”.
If you have not read those yet, check out book one called “This Time with Love”. Once you open these books, you will not want to put them down!
I haven’t enjoyed a story this much since I read the “Love Comes Softly” series written by Jannette Oke several years ago. Of course, now those great books have been made into movies.
I enjoy romance novels, but when it’s a Christian romance, I am often reminded of God’s ability to make even the most unlikely of marriages into something beautiful. In these books there are many moments when you just know the hand of God was in the midst of challenging situations.
According to Amazon, book three in the “Black Thorpe Security” series will come out in October of this year. I can hardly wait!
I also enjoy the Amish romance novels that have hit the bookshelves in the past few years. There are three very popular authors of Amish romance—Beverly Lewis, Wanda Brunstetter and Cindy Woodsmall.
Once in a while I like a good romance with some suspense mixed in, don’t you? Check out some of these titles when you’re in the mood to mix it up:
No matter which series you choose, kick back and take a trip to another country or another time. Maybe you can be a part of a totally different culture!
There have been many criticisms regarding Christian romance novels, but I believe they are so well written, and they emphasize the fact that God can make all things good. I’m reminded of His goodness in our lives and our relationships. 🙂
