It's's romance!

It's Monday! That means that I am once again back to writing my reviews on snogging instead of church! :) Well, actually, today's review is a little bit of a combination of both! Today I'm going to review one of my favorite Christian romance authors Karen Witemeyer. Literally everything I've read by her has left me with a big smile on my face because she write good clean romances! And I always love her cover artwork! I've given her books to a couple of friends of mine and they've read them in one setting until the wee hours of the morning! Trust me! They like to text me about how they're going to be really tired the next day! I'll review her latest one first and then some of her past one's I've read! Her latest one is-

Stealing the Preacher was a little more Christian then Karen Witemeyer's other books BUT it makes sense because the main character is a preacher! I sometimes like my Christian books lighter on the Christian but I didn't really mind this one! It made religion applicable to the characters lives without being overly preachy. It kind of reminds me of the Hallmark series Love Comes Softly. Karen Witemeyer has a way of slowly building everything to perfection in her books. It kind of reminds me of a lazy summer afternoon while floating on a tube down a river. It's just enjoyable and lovely. So here's what this book was all about-On his way to interview for a position at a church-Crockett Archer is kidnapped off of a train and presented to the kidnappers daughter as the minister she requested for her birthday. Joanna Robbins, the daughter, prayed for a preacher. A man to breathe life back into the abandoned church at the heart of her community. A man to assist her in fulfilling a promise to her dying mother. So when Crockett and Jo meet is seems like fate. Crockett can help Jo with her dreams. And maybe just maybe their dreams are destined to be about each other. ;) I think that this book was just simply sweet. It even had some moments in it that were kind of intense! While the Short Straw Bride is still number one in my heart this book is definitely worth your time!! :)


Jericho "J.T." Tucker wants nothing to do with the town's new dressmaker. He's all too familiar with her kind--shallow women more devoted to fashion than true beauty. Yet, except for her well-tailored clothing, this seamstress is not at all what he expected. Hannah Richards is confounded by the man who runs the livery. The unsmiling fellow riles her with his arrogant assumptions and gruff manner while at the same time stirring her heart with unexpected acts of kindness. This book was just a fun cute read! It was like the Pride and Prejudice of the Old West! Imagine a cowboy Mr. Darcy! It was more fluff and froth then anything else! :)

My fave! So, ya know those books where the romance in them is just so cute and sweet and you swoon when they finally hold hands or share their first kiss? :-) yeah this is one of those :-) (giggle giggle) No one steps on Archer land. Not if they value their life. But when Meredith Hayes overhears a lethal plot to burn the Archer brothers off their ranch, a twelve-year-old debt to Archer for saving her life compels her to take the risk. And when an act of sacrifice leaves her injured and her reputation in shreds, gratitude and guilt send Archer riding to her rescue once again. Four brothers. Four straws. One bride. Despite the fact that Travis is no longer the gallant youth Meredith once dreamed about, she determines to stand by his side against the enemy that threatens them both. But will love ever be hers? Or will Travis always see her merely as a short-straw bride? LOVED IT!

This book is just a simple sweet story with redemption and second chances. This one did not disappoint! Having completed his sentence for an unintentional crime, Levi Grant looks to start over in the town of Spencer, Texas. Spencer needs a blacksmith, and he needs a place where no one knows his past. Eden Spencer has sworn off men, choosing instead to devote her time to the lending library she runs. When a mountain-sized stranger walks through her door and asks to borrow a book, she steels herself against the attraction he provokes. His halting speech and hesitant manner leave her doubting his intelligence. Yet as the mysteries of the town's new blacksmith unfold, Eden discovers hidden depths in him that tempt her heart. But when the truth about his prodigal past comes to light, can this tarnished hero find a way to win back the librarian's affections?

So what do ya say ya'll-aren't you in for a little western lovin? ;)
