She wants to save history.
He wants to raze it all.

A local tour guide who makes a living off Savannah history goes to battle against an award-winning developer who wants to raze the old city block she lives on.

An old-meets-new contemporary Christian romance set in the historic city of Savannah, WALK YOU THERE is book 5 of USA Today bestselling author Jan Thompson’s Savannah Sweethearts series of sweet, clean, and wholesome Christian romance celebrating faith, hope, and love in Jesus Christ.

Tamsyn’s Troubles…

Tamsyn Pendegrast’s troubles can be summed up in one word: Ryan.

Okay, three words: Ryan Ruttledge V.

A nightmare to her historical preservation efforts, an enemy of her fledgling Tamsyn Tours travel agency and tour company, Ryan seems to have it all: funding, support, awards, and the deeds to half the properties on Rosa Pendegrast Lane in old-town Savannah. Only three historic homes remain unsold. One of them is the Pendegrast family home where Tamsyn has lived since she was a baby.

Savannah residents will not take this destruction sitting down. Tamsyn is sure of it. No way will they let Ruttledge Yamada Urquhart Commercial Properties turn her nineteenth-century city block into a ghastly sprawl of glass-and-steel sculpture. It’s Tamsyn’s duty to Savannah history and to the memory of the Pendegrast family to educate that Ryan dude on why he should just leave the past alone.

There. Her task is set.

If only he weren’t so charming…

Ryan’s Ruckus…

Three more houses to buy, and the city block will belong to Ryan’s commercial property company. Then he will reshape the area into a modernist architectural creation. One more award to win, and one more plaque to hang on the wall of his Atlanta office. Easy peasy, right?

All he has to do is get past Tamsyn Pendegrast. That small-town tour guide has a property he wants. One house. How hard can it be to get one house? If she sells her ramshackle old house, her two neighbors will follow.

Why is she holding out? His company has offered Tamsyn three times the value of her property. That worn and weary Queen Anne style Victorian house isn’t going to last through the twenty-first century, anyway. Its foundation has been reinforced twice, and no amount of paint will restore it to its old glory. Tamsyn is simply holding on to a past that cannot be regained. She might as well give it up.

And yet, Tamsyn’s tenacity intrigues him. It’s messing with his mind.

And heart.

Uh-oh.

Having come to terms with his disability, business empire heir Dante Dupree has it all, but Nadine Saylor is too busy to be impressed with his accolades, and too busy to fall in love. Yet, love keeps knocking on her door...

A story about living and loving with disability, coupled with racial diversity in Christian communities, CHERISH YOU SO is Book 4 in USA Today bestselling author Jan Thompson’s Savannah Sweethearts series of clean, wholesome multiethnic contemporary Christian romance celebrating faith, hope, and love in Jesus Christ. 

Dante’s Dream…

Billionaire bachelor Dante Dupree has arrived. Living with paraplegia, he now has a state-of-the-art wheelchair to handle his disability, and a private jet to take him across the world to buy up smaller companies for the Hot Dupree global hot sauce empire. And the best news yet for his career: He has been handpicked to be the next CEO of Hot Dupree, Inc., and he’s going to inherit a fifth of the multi-billion-dollar family fortune. He has it all. 

At the end of an international business trip, Dante stops in Savannah for merger talks and to visit his pregnant sister. Exuberant and on top of his game, single and free, the center of attention among ladies, and recently voted one of the top ten most eligible young billionaires in the world, self-confident Dante suddenly finds himself in a predicament he cannot solve: he’s in love.

But he can’t get her attention. She is not impressed at all with his accolades.

Nadine’s Norms…

Nadine Saylor is busy, busy, busy. Her job as a virtual assistant to clients traveling through six or seven time zones keeps her on her toes around the clock. The last thing she needs right now is Dante Dupree flinging signals and invitations at her, even though he did look handsome in his Lagerfeld tuxedo at his sister’s wedding eleven months ago.

Nadine keeps telling herself that her calendar is full. There’s no room for romance. Dante can go find someone else to be his Flavor of the Month.

When one of Dante’s professional problems intersects with Nadine’s personal predicament, they find themselves thrown together to sort out these chapters of their lives. Has God put them together in this place for such a time as this?
