Chuseok Festival of Books

Thank you, Erica!

I remember the Scholastic Book Fair at school. It was one of my favorite events. (I also enjoyed browsing those book flyers.)

Chuseok is sometimes called the Korean Thanksgiving. It’s a three day major harvest festival holiday in the middle of August.

Our harvest here at the Roxbury is, of course, books. Enjoy.


First up, here is a title I first discovered on Wattpad. I remember laughing a lot.

priestess and the dragon

514bfI7wRsL._SY346_.jpg

In spite of, maybe because of the way her love life had gone, Kayden James works hard to become a successful Marriage and Family Therapist. The last thing she needs is for her ex-boyfriend Liam to stroll into her office and stir up old feelings. Especially after the way he treated her all those years ago. She would rather remain a single cat lady than risk her heart again.

Liam hopes to make amends, but worries he won’t be able to melt Kayden’s icy exterior enough for her to see how much he has changed. Initiating their reunion, he sets out to prove that their relationship never was a game to him… to convince Kayden to continue traveling love’s full circle.

Thinking About Love

Head into the long weekend with a new book by Audrey Rich! Thinking About Love is the second book in her Stonehaven High Series.

Can faith trump love?

Seventeen year old, Trina Weber has the world at her feet: beautiful, part of the in-crowd, and on her way to graduate with enough college credits to earn her AA while only a junior at Stonehaven High School.

With her whole life planned, all she needs to complete her perfect world is a boyfriend.

But not any guy will do.

She’s searching for a partner, who will accept her goals and all the studying that goes with becoming a family doctor.

When the gorgeous, equally ambitious college freshman Stuart Grant blazes into her South Florida paradise, he fits right in. He’s everything she dreamed of and more…except he doesn’t agree with the most important part of who she is.

Author Bio: Audrey Rich is a New York City transplant living in South Florida, who writes sweet YA and NA Contemporary Romances and is an avid reader of novels where love conquers all.

She’s married to her own happily-ever-after Hero, is an inactive CPA, and a stay-at-home mom homeschooling her teenage daughter.

Audrey enjoys volunteering with children of all ages at church and teaching the Junior Achievement curriculums at local middle and high schools. She also enjoys walking on South Florida beaches and loves to travel with her family.

Forgetting the Billionaire

Turn your Monday blues around with this new release by Anne – Marie Meyer!

Charlie Rosen had no intention of falling in love. In fact, it was the last thing on her mind. Between keeping the retirement home afloat and caring for two residents with dementia, she doesn’t have the time. Plus, her heart was broken from her last relationship.

Mitchell Kingsley had finally located his grandmother after his parents cut all ties with her years ago. He leaves his multi-billion dollar real estate business in New York and flies to Sitka with the intention of making amends before she passes. When he meets Charlie, his grandmother’s intriguing caretaker, he starts to think she just might be what’s missing in his life.

When his grandmother mistakes Mitchell for his father and Charlie for his elusive girlfriend, they decide it’s best to fake a relationship for her sake. Sparks fly, ex’s return, and Mitchell’s grandmother begins to remember. Now they both must decide if love is worth all the risks.

“Forgetting the Billionaire had everything I love about a romance. An antagonist to hate, a sexy man who had a soft spot for his grandmother, and a woman desperately trying to hang onto her legacy. I was rooting for them the entire way. Great story with all the heart-stopping romance I love.” — Victorine E. Lieske, NYT’s bestselling author

Faith-Filled Friday

Welcome to Faith-Filled Friday! Please feel free to share a favorite Bible verse, inspirational poem, or a few sentences from one of your favorite Christian books. Authors may post an excerpt from any of their family friendly books. Today I’m sharing an excerpt with you from my novel, The Fearful Heart.

Cassidy stood at the window, watching the storm through sleepy eyes. Off in the distance, massive greenish-tinged clouds hovered in the sky as the rain saturated the ground. Loud claps of thunder pierced the dense air, and bold flashes of lightning illuminated the dorm room then returned it to darkness. The populous white ash and scarlet oak trees twisted and whipped in the wind, littering the ground with their stripped branches.

“It looks ominous out there. I hope we don’t get any tornadoes on campus.”

“Don’t worry,” Billie mumbled from underneath her blankets. “The university hasn’t texted a warning, or our cell phones would have beeped. And the tornado siren hasn’t gone off.”

“Not yet.” Cassidy bit her nail as she listened to the wind howl. “Oh, we would have to live on the top floor!”

She continued to watch the storm, listening to the church bells clang randomly every time the wind kicked up, and thinking of the verses in Job: Do you know how God controls the clouds and makes his lightning flash? He loads the clouds with moisture; he scatters his lightning through them. The tempest comes out from its chamber, the cold from the driving winds.

Have a blessed weekend!
