Rescued By The Firefighter
Love Inspired – April 2014 release
Readers enjoyed the first two novels in Gail Gaymer Martin’s Sisters Series indicated by Amazon’s 5 and 4-1/2 star ratings from readers and 4 stars from Romantic Times. Rescued By The Firefighter is the final novel in the series and is in stores now.
Back cover blurb:
A Fresh Start
Paula Reynolds is looking for a new job, a new home, a new everything—except for love. Determined not to repeat old mistakes, she’s staying away from romance. She never counted on falling for handsome firefighter Clint Donatelli. Clint is used to saving lives, but with the beautiful Paula, he faces a challenge. Getting to know her is a daunting task, especially since he’s just as wary of relationships. When he learns a stunning secret from her past, he must choose—to live the way he’s always lived, or trust in a new love.
What have reviewers said?

Paula’s determination to change and her emotional growth are realistic. Readers will clearly see the characters’ vulnerabilities. The pace is steady pace and the conclusion satisfying in the final Sisters story.  Romantic Time Review 4 stars

Rachel, A Novel by Jill Eileen Smith

 

 

4 ½ Stars from RT Book Reviews

 Can true love overcome a legacy of betrayal?

Rachel wants nothing more than for her older half sister Leah to wed and move out of their household. Leah wishes her father would find a good man who would love her alone. Unbeknownst to either of them, Jacob is making his way to their home, trying to escape a past laced with deceit and find the future God has promised him.

But the past comes back to haunt Jacob when he finds himself on the receiving end of treachery. The man who wanted only one woman ends up with sisters who have never gotten along and now must spend the rest of their lives sharing a husband. In the power struggles that follow, only one woman will triumph . . . or will she?

January’s Hot Off The Press

A Young Woman Dreaming of Freedom…

Sophie Davenport feels like a prisoner in her own house. In her twenty–two years, her overprotective parents have taken every possible measure to keep her from anything that might exacerbate her asthma–in other words, just about everything but reading and needlework. Yet Sophie longs for adventure…and for love. She corresponds clandestinely with a would–be suitor, until they meet and her wheezing scares him off. It seems her fragile health just might sentence her to a lifetime of monotonous inactivity.

 

A Young Man Dreaming of a Family…

Josh Harper is far more bookish than his brawny brothers. The middle child, he enjoys helping at his family’s stagecoach stop in Kansas, where he spends a great deal of time crafting furniture and other items out of wood. But, before long, his book smarts draw him to the nearby city of Windmill, where he begins work as manager of his uncle’s bank. He also looks after his niece and nephew, who spend their weeks in town to attend school. The change of scenery is welcome, but Josh yearns for a family of his own. Too bad eligible females are not plenteous on the prairie.

 

A Reality That Seems to Stand in the Way…

When Sophie’s aunt, a resident of Windmill, falls ill and requires help, Sophie volunteers. Despite his hesitation, her father finally relents and lets her go, as there is no other option. Her new role brings her into contact with the children boarding at her aunt’s home–and with the handsome uncle of two of them. Is there a larger purpose in her coming to Windmill? Or will Josh Harper reject her, if not for her frail health, then for the rocky nature of their relationship?

The Firefighter’s New Family

The Firefighter’s New Family
Love Inspired, January 2014 release
Book #2 in the Sisters Series 

A tornado may have left Ashley Kern injured beneath a fallen tree, but it’s her rescuer who plays havoc with her emotions. Firefighter Devon Murphy is everything the single mom could wish for in a husband: handsome, a doting father and ready to join his family to hers. But how can the pretty war widow make a life once more with a man whose career is full of danger? Devon has fought some pretty big battles in his life, but can he help Ashley conquer her fears and show her the safest place of all is in his arms?
(Book #1 - Her Valentine Hero, Feb. 2013)

4 star RT review:  In the second book in the Sisters series, strong characters demonstrate how we should not let fear prevent us from living the life God has planned. Martin is inventive with her offbeat comparison of a family to a puzzle.

December’s Hot Off The Press


Mia Roper has what she always wanted 

Her independence, her career and her home back East. But when a 
train wreck strands her in Hillsdale, Michigan, the town she once 
called home, Mia begins to wonder if she made the right choice to 
leave Hillsdale—and her true love—behind. 

Rescuing injured passengers, Professor Ayden Goswell can't believe 
his eyes. Could that really be Mia, the woman who once owned his 
heart, emerging from the wreckage? Long ago, Mia and Ayden chose 
their careers over love. But God, it seems, may have other plans 
for them….
