#Romance – Behind the Altar


Romance in a Month

In an earlier post, I wrote about the Romance in a Month class I took in May/June. Here’s the update on the book and the course: I finished my first romance, Behind the Altar, and  I’m working on the very final edits right now. I discovered yesterday that I could put it up on Amazon for Kindle pre-orders. So that’s exactly what I’ve done. It’s very exciting. The official release date is September 16, 2014.

Place your order for Behind the Altar by clicking here. It’s a contemporary romance featuring forbidden love.

Blurb: Leah Bryant’s life satisfies all her needs. Her engagement to Jacob Davis, minister of the Sunshine Christian Church, gives her the security she requires after living in a car during her teenage years. She runs a food kitchen out of the church for homeless vets who are living on the banks of Deer River. All is perfect until the day her future mother-in-law Geraldine tells her the church is shutting down the kitchen, and Dean””Jacob’s brother””rides his Harley into her heart. Leah’s world begins to crumble as she falls into Dean’s muscular and tattooed arms. Dean, who’s been away from his home for ten years, finds himself irresistibly drawn in by Leah’s natural beauty and genuine goodness. As they fight to stay away from one another, Leah and Dean keep finding ways to be together. The more they fight the attraction, the harder it is to stay apart. Will Leah go ahead and marry Jacob despite Dean’s haunting her every thought? Will Dean exact the revenge he came home to hand out? And will Geraldine manage to keep control over the church, Jacob, and Leah? It will all be determined in Behind the Altar, a romantic story of forbidden love.

I loved this class taught by Rachelle Ayala so much that I am taking it again, starting September 1. I’m writing the second in my Behind the Love series. This one follows the best friend of Leah, the main character in Behind the Altar. In Behind the Bar, Susie and Reggie must decide if their relationship will continue as is or decide it’s time for a permanent commitment. Let’s just say Reggie, the owner of the Victory Tavern, has different ideas than Susie who’s ready for marriage. This contemporary romance is about second chances for love.

Here’s my very tentative cover for Behind the Bar. What do you think? Should I make it sexier?Behind the Bar

  1. Congratulations! Book One sounds great, and it’s exciting that you’re already working on Book Two. As for the cover, it certainly works, but there is a reason why they say sex sells. Making it a little steamier wouldn’t hurt. 😉


  2. Loved book 1, made me cry, laugh and smile. Just wondering when book 2, will be released? Busting to keep reading. I hope we get a little insight into how Dean & Leah are doing and Jacob too, of cousre :))

    • Thank you so much, Leanne! I’m working furiously on finishing Behind the Bar right now. I hope to have it released by the end of March. Reggie and Susie are making waves in Victory, all with the support of Dean and Leah!


      • Reviews are always welcome if you’re so inclined! To everyone: reviews don’t have to be long (shorter is better), but they should be honest and give readers a guide on whether to purchase or not. Thanks!
