--"Lorhainne Eckhart always astonishes me with her very real, very fallible characters."
--"No matter how much I enjoy a book, I rarely read it a second time. This was one of those rare times. It is one of those rare books."
--"It's the story of a man with control issues, and the less confident woman he's in love with. This book tugged on all my emotions with all the obstacles this couple had to endure. There is a HEA, but it takes a lot of tears to get to it."
--"Absolutely Loved this story!
Eric is a hell of a man. Abby is one hell of a strong woman and their story is absolutely romantic!"
-- "I just love this series. The Friessen men are truly Alpha men. Don't get in their way and don't disrespect their women. They may be hard headed, have to be in charge and control, and will do just about anything for their families. Don't underestimate them or their women, their love runs deep and true. You will fall in love with each and every
one of them."
--"A woman finding her strength, a child finding love and support, a healing of family, and a complicated love story."
--"I loved all the ups and downs, reality driven plot, and imperfections that the characters worked through!"
The One: You never know when you’ll suddenly meet the one.
The Forgotten Child: How do you tell a man there is something wrong with his child?
The Deadline:Andy Friessen has packed up everything and moved his family two states away, to Montana, to protect his wife, Laura, his newborn babies, and his stepson, Gabriel, from the threats of his mother. What Andy doesn't know is that they'll soon face a new threat, one he never saw coming.
Saved: “Growing up I had dreams that one day I'd fall in love, get married and start a family. Then one night I was taken. But I survived, I escaped and I was saved. Eric didn't see me as damaged. He didn't see my baby as a monster. He protected me, he kept me safe ... he saved me.”
The Choice: One woman. Two Men. And a choice that will kill her.
THE PRICE TO LOVE
She could give him everything except the one thing he wanted—A child.
Candy knows that her husband wants a baby, but she can’t give him one. When Neil pays for a surrogate and moves her into their home, he tells her not to worry, but she suddenly feels as if she’s on the outside looking in.
Then, one day, she meets a little girl who steals her heart, a little girl with a damaged, scarred soul filled with the kind of despair and hopelessness that should never be in the innocent eyes of a child. But neither Neil nor his family understand her need to help.
As their marriage hangs on brink of disaster Candy is forced to make a choice between her husband and helping this child.
A DIFFERENT KIND OF LOVE brings back the couple that started it all: Brad and Emily. You fell in love with them in The Forgotten Child. Now, years later, they face an entirely new set of challenges with their preteen autistic boy when his mother, Crystal, returns. She wants a relationship with the boy she abandoned—something Brad and Emily never expected. She says she’s changed, but can the Friessens believe her?
A VOW OF LOVE
Sometimes families need a helping hand...
Holidays are about family, love, and giving, but this Christmas, the Friessens are in for a rough holiday season.
Thirteen days before Christmas, a letter arrives that Candy Friessen was never meant to see. When she opens it, she discovers a lie that rocks her world, and she begins to question everything she and Neil have created together, including his love for her and their family.
Seven days before Christmas, her heart breaking, Candy considers leaving her husband for good, and she begins making plans—until a call one night alerts all the Friessens that Becky, their mother, is in the hospital, fighting for her life. Without a second thought, the entire Friessen clan is on a plane to her bedside. Faced with uncertainty, Brad, Neil, Jed, and their wives are together for Christmas, but there’s no happy celebration, no gifts piled under the tree.
For Candy and Neil, once trust is destroyed, can their family bond be strong enough to save their marriage?
