NICK’S HEART (Book 2 of the In Your Arms series) is a story of inspiration:


Nick Costas, having coped with and overcome his rough upbringing in abusive foster homes and on the streets of L.A., having undergone a spiritual transformation, and having become a loving and passionate father of a family of seven, continues to inspire those around him but with newfound struggles. Nick now struggles to accept and perfect his newfound fame as an author and a touring speaker while also trying to build a safe haven home for boys. And he struggles to balance these new gigs with his health and with the wants and needs of his ever-changing family.


Join Nick on his journey of inspiration as he transitions from a successful music producer and a loving and spiritual father of a family of seven to an inspiration to those around him. Follow him as he inspires others through his speaking engagements and his love and passion for his wife Barb, his five children, and scripture. Follow him as he directly and indirectly guides his friends and his children through their own courtships, love lives, and marriages. And follow him as he works to build a Home for Boys as a place where struggling youths like he was can have the same opportunities for redemption and success that he experienced.

Equal parts swoonworthy romance and deeply affecting family drama, this debut novel about the boy next door turned super hot bad boy will have readers hooked from the very first kiss.

After his father’s stroke, Max Holden isn't himself. As his long-time friend, Jillian Eldridge only wants to help, but she doesn't know how. When Max climbs through her window one night, Jill knows she shouldn't let him kiss her. But she can’t resist, and when they're caught in the act by her dad, Jill swears it'll never happen again. Because kissing Max Holden is a terrible idea.

With a new baby sibling on the way, her parents fighting all the time, and her dream of culinary school suddenly up in the air, Jill starts spending more and more time with Max. And even though her father disapproves and Max still has a girlfriend, not kissing Max is easier said than done. Will Jill follow her heart, and allow their friendship to blossom into something more, or will she listen to her head and stop kissing Max Holden once and for all?

Chosen by readers like you for Macmillan's young adult imprint Swoon Reads, Katy Upperman’s debut novel Kissing Max Holden skillfully navigates the tenuous territory of bad influences, good friends, and complicated families.

Experience the timeless love, music, and spirituality of author Charlotte S. Snead’s family-centered and heavenly classic WINSLOW FARM.

When Gabe Winslow learns of his parents’ death in an automobile accident, he resigns from the army and returns home from Afghanistan to his family farm in Lost Creek, West Virginia. Brian, Gabe’s younger brother with Down syndrome, would be left alone with nobody to care for him without this sacrifice from Gabe. With the brothers not knowing each other very well, and with them forced to sell their farm to a new, mysterious owner while they stay on as caretakers, their future and that of the farm looks incredibly bleak. Only a miracle can save them.

After Gabe and Brian form a close, unbreakable bond while building their new caretaker’s cottage on the property, they nervously await the arrival of the farm’s new owner. The new owner steps out of a limousine and into their hearts, strolling down Winslow Farm’s main road with cornflower blue eyes and a familiar song on her lips. The young and vibrant, twenty-something, bluegrass-singing star Joy Thomas has purchased Winslow Farm as her escape from a crazy life as a rising star in Nashville. She brings with her music and passion, and she brings out of Gabe and Brian love and something divine—something tangibly divine.

Together, the trio of Joy, Gabe, and Brian bring Winslow Farm back to life. They bring a wealth of new people with diverse personalities to the farm, they record award-winning music there, they defend Joy from a dangerous stalker, they tangle with bears, they renovate and redecorate, and they accept, love, and work with Brian as he struggles to cope with his disabilities and with the loss of his parents. Slowly, they build a loving family at Winslow Farm. And throughout it all, people discover that Gabe possesses a unique, otherworldly talent that might help him keep the farm safe from evil forever. But will Gabe fully realize this talent in time to do so, or will tragedy strike the farm again?
