Single mom Becca Norton is surprised to discover her high school crush Jared Donnelly is back in town. The motocross champion hasn’t been home in years, but the former bad boy is as gorgeous as she remembers. And his kindness toward her kids melts her heart. But when she learns his true purpose in town is to build a motocross school on land near her home, she has to put on the brakes. Her children’s welfare is her priority, and her former in-laws have made it clear they don’t approve of Jared or his plans. Soon Becca may have to choose between her heart…and her home.

A Firefighter’s Promise
When the baby he rescued seven years ago returns—with his widowed adoptive mom—Deputy Fire Chief Matt Bailey can’t turn them away. Desperate to escape the reminders of his failure in the line of duty, Matt is close to leaving town. But one look at Rachel Carter and her son, Christopher, has him second-guessing his plans. Rachel is a mom in need of a hero for her son. But as much as she wants the two to bond, she’s determined to keep her distance from Matt. After losing her husband on the job, she promised never to love another fireman. Yet somehow she finds herself drawn to the one man she should avoid.

The Rancher Takes a Bride
Duke Martin is a father! The former army medic is stunned when old love Oregon Jeffries tells him the news. Given his troubled past, the hardworking rancher and diner owner understands why Oregon kept his daughter a secret for twelve years. But now Duke desperately wants to make up for lost time. As he sets out to be a true father to Lilly, he soon realizes his feelings for Oregon are growing stronger. When Oregon’s health falters, he’s ready to care for her and prove that he’s worthy of her love. Could this be Duke’s second chance with the woman he never should have let get away?

The Doctor’s Second Chance
Jake West’s troubled cousin leaves him with a most unusual parting gift—her newborn baby girl! And now the small-town contractor is forced to seek help from the very woman he resents—the new big-city pediatrician who practically stole his uncle’s practice, Violet Crenshaw. Violet knows she shouldn’t be consorting with the enemy. But she can’t resist the adorable baby and her handsome new caretaker. Violet traded her chance at motherhood for her career years ago. But raising a family with Jake could be everything she’s ever wanted.

The Single Dad Finds a Wife
Doctor Spring Darling has everything she needs. A wonderful family and a busy job helping the children of Cedar Springs, North Carolina. She’s given up on adding love to that mix. Until the moment David Camden and his adorable son appear in her exam room. Spring assumes David is another down-on-his-luck single parent at the free clinic—but looks can be deceiving. Because David has a job—he’s the architect proposing a new development in the middle of Spring’s land! When the truth is revealed, can Spring find a way to keep both her home and the blessing of new love?

My Thoughts
I love to read but these days its hard to find a romance to read that isn't pure filth. Enter the Love Inspired stories from the favorite romance company Harlequin. These are books that are full of love, faith and hope. I like something that isn't too serious and can help me relax. I don't often read romance but I used to all the time until it got to the point that they were all smutty. I might just get back in the habit now that I have discovered the Love Inspired books. I read Winning the Teacher's Heart by Jean C. Gordon I loved the characters. They're easy to identify with on many levels. Once I started reading it I couldn't stop. Only problem was that I finished way too soon. I'm definitely going to have to read the rest of The Donnelly Brothers series. I don't want to spoil anything by giving too much away but, my only real problem is that Becca is too wishy washy when it comes to her ex in-laws. Although on that same note it did help the story along in a few spots. All I can say is that I would definitely recommend reading this book to anyone. Not just the Christian faith. It is religious and I do like that about it. However, I've been on both sides of the fence and I can honestly say that it's not pushy in the book. This book isn't out to save your soul but, it might helps you to find your way.
