From New York Times & USA Today Bestselling Author Lorhainne Eckhart comes The Friessens: A New Beginning a Special Collection in this big family romance series, which includes The Deadline, The Price To Love, A Different Kind of Love, and A Vow of Love.

—  “Author Lorhainne Eckhart is adept at showing deeply felt emotions through actions, instead of just telling us. ~ Reviewed by Natasha Jackson, Readers Favorite

—  “A wonderful love story not only about an unconditional love between a man and woman, but an unconditional heart -filled love for a special child.” ~ S. George

—   I absolutely love this author. I have read the complete outsider series and search for the continuing saga because I am addicted. ~ Katzbut

—  “My heart ached for Neil and Candy is this book."- Reviewer Amanda

In 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.

Gabriel is sick, and a trip to the doctor confirms Laura and Andy's worst nightmare: Without a lifesaving transplant, their son won't survive.

What Andy doesn't count on, as he tracks down the young man who fathered Gabriel, as well as Laura's estranged parents, is that a whole host of problems are about to be unleashed.

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?

THE REUNION


The family you thought you knew.

A reunion you’ll never forget.

A love that lasts forever.


THE BLOODLINE 


Andy Friessen has two guarantees in life:


1. His wife, Laura, and his children are safe from the control of his family.


2. A safety deposit box holds evidence that could blow his mother’s world apart.


But nothing is ever simple or easy, and one night tragedy strikes, yanking the rug from under him. This time, secrets and lies could destroy the solid foundation he’s built for his family.


THE PROMISE 


Falling in love with Jed Friessen was a dream come true.


Married to Jed, Diana has a family and is living her happily ever after. She knew heartbreak and suffering as a child, and the pain of rejection, but she now understands what it means to be loved.


However, when the past comes knocking on her door, reminding her of everything she’s left behind, everything she was, and everything she’s lost, her guilt and doubt threaten the life she’s built with her husband.


THE BUSINESS PLAN 

Neil Friessen has almost everything he’s ever wanted:


• His wife, the woman he’s always love

• His children, whom he never believed he would have

• And an empty bank account


Until one day, that is, when he comes up with the business plan.


THE DECISION

The Friessens, stars of the bestselling series, are back with THE DECISION, another heartwarming fan favorite romance from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Lorhainne Eckhart.

Emily Friessen has everything a woman could want: a husband who’s the love of her life, a family that stands together, and children she wouldn’t trade for anything. To everyone around her, she’s confident and strong—but then, she has to be with a man like Brad, who is all about family and too handsome for his own good.

Emily isn’t as together as she appears, though, and when life throws her and Brad a curveball, it tests their relationship, leaving Emily scrambling and feeling very much alone as both are faced with a decision no parent should have to make.







 From New York Times & USA Today bestselling author Lorhainne Eckhart comes a new box set collection, THE FRIESSENS: BOOKS 6 - 8, an emotionally gripping family saga fans worldwide have fallen in love with.


FIRST LOVE 

Everyone said they were too young to love.

Katy and Steven have planned out their happily ever after: marriage, family, and a place of their own. A simple life in a small town with big dreams, just like Katy’s parents, Brad and Emily.

However, life’s hardships soon threaten the future Steven and Katy have planned together.


FAMILY FIRST

They never expected their happily ever after could go so wrong.

Katy and Steven never imagined that their simple dreams would come crashing around them, but six months in and this newlywed couple’s carefully crafted future is crumbling. Instead of being by Steven’s side, Katy finds herself with a distance between them, secrets of her own, and a divided family that could end up with Steven walking away.


LEAVE THE LIGHT ON

When the unthinkable happens a family’s life is changed forever.

Katy and Steven have settled in their new home, with a new job, a new life, and a baby on the way. Everything for this young couple is perfect—that is, until the night Steven makes a quick trip to the grocery store for his pregnant wife. As the sun rises and Katy wakes, she soon discovers that Steven never made it home.


“Best family series ever! I love the dynamic of this powerful close family. Three brothers, a cousin, and all the spouses and children make for an interesting, spellbinding story you won’t want to put down.” Customer


“This is a series that you will go back to time and again to reread. Lorhainne Eckhart is that type of writer. Love her stories about family and their journey. This is a great read, full of love for family that sticks together.” Joann Moore

Originally published in 2011 and 2012.

Say “I do” to three royal heroes in this collection of classic royal wedding romances.

Matrimony with His Majesty — Rebecca Winters

Darrell Collier is an ordinary, small—town single mum. And when Alexandre Valleder sweeps into her life, she’s determined not to be pressured into marriage by royal command!

Alex is a good ruler and a responsible king. But one secret night, years ago, he rebelled. The result, as he’s just discovered, was a child. Now he has to make things right. It will shock his family and shake up the monarchy. First, he must persuade this beautiful, stubborn commoner she has the makings of a queen!

A Royal Marriage of Convenience — Marion Lennox

International lawyer Nikolai de Montez has just discovered he’s the estranged heir to the throne of Alp de Montez. To rightfully rule, he must marry Rose McCray!

Rose is an ordinary country vet, but her royal bloodline makes her Nik’s bride of choice — and she knows it’s her duty to accept. The wedding ceremony is sumptuous, yet when the formalities are over it’s time for the Prince and Princess of Alp de Montez to get to know one another as man and wife…

The Royal Marriage — Fiona Hood-Stewart

Gabriella Guimaraes was shocked to discover that her late father had promised her to a prince! She must marry or be left penniless. Ricardo, the irresistibly handsome ruler of the Mediterranean principality of Maldoravia, was not easy to refuse!

Determined not to be ruled by Ricardo, Gabriella’s defiance began in the bedroom. But she hadn’t bargained on falling in love with her husband, or his insistence that this must be a royal marriage — in every sense!

"A watershed moment exists in every man's life, Fish—the moment when you stop being your mother's son and start being your lover's man. When you transition from protected to protector."

Erik "Fish" Fiskare is only a college junior when a gunman walks into the campus theater, intent on stopping the show. From the lighting booth, Fish sees his girlfriend, Marguerite "Daisy" Bianco, get caught in the line of fire. Everyone runs away from the stage but Fish, in a watershed moment, runs toward it.

Spanning fifteen years, The Man I Love explores how a single act of violence reverberates through a circle of friends. At the center are Fish and Daisy, two soul mates who always brought out the best in each other. Both are hailed as heroes after the shooting, yet the tragedy starts to bring out the worst in them, tearing the circle apart.

Soon, Fish is running again—not toward Daisy this time, but as far away as possible. But can you really leave the one you were born to love? And is leaving always the end of loving?

"You never got over her, Fish. You just left. You may think that's closure, but it isn't. You may think a woman like Daisy comes along twice in a lifetime, but she doesn't."

Fearlessly touching on today's social and mental health issues, The Man I Love follows Erik Fiskare's journey back to the truth of himself and a woman he can't forget. With its gripping story and an unforgettable cast of characters, this epic novel of love and forgiveness lingers long after the last page is turned.

"A new kind of romance, well-crafted and intelligently written. Suanne Laqueur deftly explores what it means to be vulnerable, resilient and human."

"A compelling, heartfelt, intense read. The Man I Love raises important and tough social topics that are relevant and timely."

"An intelligent, perfectly-pitched modern romance. NOT your typical boy meets girl, but a story of first love and how people handle extreme situations."

"The Man I Love looks love, sex, depression and PTSD in the face and calls them by name. An astounding journey of forgiveness and recovery."

"Laqueur combines the dynamics of a circle of friends with a school shooting. The result is The Man I Love, a gripping, angsty psychological romance that explores second chances at first love. Book clubs will find plenty to discuss in this coming-of-age emotional journey of forgiveness and recovery. The characters are flawlessly crafted and deserving of love after tragedy. You'll be thinking about them long after you've finished."

"From university to adulthood, through love and loss, devotion and betrayal, estrangement and forgiveness, the Fish Tales series will bring you on an emotional journey of love and truth."
