Authors with Heart Spotlight and Giveaway: Donna Alward’s The Crown Prince’s Bride

I have another “authors with heart” spotlight and prize pack from the 2017 project! In these features, you get to hear about a book and have a chance to win a prize! Each featured author helped with the 2017 Mother's Day thermal bags that were donated to two Washington state Fisher Houses—VA Puget Sound Healthcare System in Seattle and Madigan Army Medical Center at JBLM.

Donna Alward‘s new release THE CROWN PRINCE'S BRIDE is in this week's spotlight. The book is part of her Prince DuologyHere's what a reviewer had to say about Donna's book:

“The Crown Prince’s Bride is a sweet, wonderful, heartwarming romance, with some heartbreaking moments….Donna Alward has written a very enjoyable, sweet contemporary romance. She always gives us great likable characters, and from the start you will root for Stephani to get her fairy tale romance.”—Amazon Reviewer

Here's the blurb for THE CROWN PRINCE'S BRIDE:

A Crown Prince gets a second chance at love with the woman who’s always been there – in the next book in the prince duology from Donna Alward!

The Crown Prince of Marazur is suffering from a broken heart. After losing his wife and future queen, he knows he’ll never find love again with a partner as wonderful as her. He’s thrown himself into his duties and is trying to be a better father to his two children, but he’s lonely. Even though falling in love seems impossible, so does spending the rest of his life alone.

Stephani has been Raoul’s assistant for years. Smart, loyal, and discreet, Stephani is fantastic at her job. Except for the fact that she’s been in love with her boss since her first week of employment, not that she would ever act on it. Besides, Raoul is first in line to the throne and she’s his assistant. If Raoul ever marries again, it’ll be with someone who can be a future queen. Not someone like Stephani.

When Raoul’s date for a state dinner is unable to attend, he invites Stephani. She’s well-versed on the issues and castle protocol, and Raoul’s always been comfortable with her. But when Stephani arrives, Raoul hardly recognizes her. Is this stunning woman the same one who’s run his office for years?

The Crown Prince’s Bride is the ultimate fairy tale for readers looking for Cinderella to get her prince—and be able to keep him past midnight.

Authors with Heart Spotlight and Giveaway: Melanie D. Snitker’s Finding Grace

It's time for another “authors with heart” spotlight and prize pack from the 2017 project! In these features, you get to hear about a book and have a chance to win a prize! Each featured author helped with the 2017 Mother's Day thermal bags that were donated to two Washington state Fisher Houses—VA Puget Sound Healthcare System in Seattle and Madigan Army Medical Center at JBLM.

This week features Melanie D. Snitker‘s new release FINDING GRACE in the spotlight. The book is part of her Love's Compass seriesHere's what a reviewer had to say about Melanie's book:

“This book completes the Love's Compass Series, which is one of the best series that I have ever read. This story, like the others, is one that is full of romance. Both of the main characters struggle with past relationships that did not end well. They are fearful to take a chance on finding love with anyone else. But, with some prompting from The Man Upstairs, they slowly step into getting to know one another. You have to read the book to find out what happens!! I love Melanie's writing. She makes you feel as if you are inside the story yourself.”—Amazon Reviewer

Here's the blurb for FINDING GRACE:

Single dad Tyler Martin can't be more grateful to the woman who finds his missing daughter. Even though he feels a spark between them, falling in love is a risk he shouldn't take. Too bad chance encounters and his stubborn heart keep trying to convince him otherwise.

After escaping a nightmarish relationship, Beth Davenport is content with her safe and blessedly normal life. Yet something about Tyler and his adorable daughter makes her wish for more. With the walls around her heart finally starting to crumble, she's afraid of a future she can't predict.

Can they let go of their fear and trust God to lead them to the love they desperately need?

I love reading Melanie's story and have been looking forward to this one as soon as she told me she was writing it. I enjoy stories of love and faith and single dads. What do you think?

A Dad’s Second Chance

Widowed single dad Marc Delacroix doesn’t have time for surprises—especially one like Fiona Bryce. Finding out that she’s the biological aunt of his adopted daughter, Stella, is a big shock. While Fiona’s commitment to the little girl appears to be genuine, Marc wonders if he can truly trust her—or his own heart, which he vowed never to risk again. Fiona’s eager to connect with the sweet young niece she never knew she had, but Marc seems determined to keep her at arm’s length. Could Marc and Fiona’s shared love of Stella be the bond that transforms their fragile connection into a real family?
