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

Thursday, December 5th, 2013

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….
