* RELEASE DAY * for Summer’s Return

Will his summer’s return set her secret free?

Moondust Cove holds too many memories and too much pain to keep Gentry Tomlinson grounded, but the small town does have one thing he wants. No, make that two. Everlee Armstrong, his longtime neighbor, and his family. What’s left of them, that is. Staying away eases the pain and allows him to forget–at least for a little while–his guilt over the tragic deaths of his parents and sister. But when his friend and business partner dies and Gentry returns home for Gramps’s summer wedding, the tug to stay and grow roots is stronger than the pull to leave again.

Interior Designer Everlee Armstrong has loved the youngest Tomlinson brother since he used to chase her on the playground in elementary school. But until the prodigal accepts that the accident that scarred his family wasn’t his fault and finally comes home to stay, she’ll keep that secret forever. That secret threatens to unravel, though, as his amazing talent surfaces, and they’re forced to work together on several projects at work.

Will God unshackle the chains of guilt and heal him? Can Everlee trust that the wanderer is finally home to stay? Will his summer’s return set her secret free? Or will he abandon her yet again?

Choices, Failures, Divorce…

Choices, choices, choices!

Some choices aren’t up to us. We may have no control over them, and yet, those decisions—heavy-hitters like divorce or adultery—change our lives forever.

Tristyn, the heroine in Her Christmas Cowboy, didn’t make either of those choices. Her husband made them for her. Shortly after the birth of their daughter, he left her for another woman. She chose to remain committed to their marriage, if only on paper, and was forced to forge a new life for her and Maisie.

They’d been separated for seven years when she meets Bryce. The adventure lifestyle photographer makes her feel treasured and beautiful, and his attention reawakens her to the possibility of love again. He pursues her until she reluctantly agrees to coffee. Coffee eventually leads to dinners, but she keeps the truth of her marriage locked away.

Until the day she knows. That one more kiss–one more second of withholding the truth—will suffocate her soul, smother her faith.

With the ink fresh on her divorce certificate, Tristyn escapes to a remote area of Montana, hoping to erase her sin and to make a new beginning for her and Maisie. But, wouldn’t you know it? Her past tracks her there! Can you ever really run away from your mistakes or your failures, your sin? It’s only by facing it and leaning into God that she gets her new beginning, freedom in grace, and a forever love.

Can you relate? I can.

What seems like a lifetime ago, I was devastated when my then-husband abandoned me and our 11-month-old son. After our divorce, I rebelled and did things that shamed me, things that smothered my faith. Thankfully, the Lord didn’t give up on me and led me to a place of new beginnings. One that included a wonderful and amazing husband (much like Bryce, the hero in Her Christmas Cowboy), another precious son, and an abundant and joyful life, free from shame and guilt.

Are you trying to escape your past? Searching for your new beginning? Lean into God. Discover your freedom in grace. If you need help, I’d love to pray for you.

A forbidden romance. A secret child. Will deception crush their love…or will truth and faith prevail?

A forbidden romance…
Bryce Kinnerly was everything Tristyn could want in a husband. Attractive. Kind. Thoughtful. Attentive.

Everything her husband isn’t.

Rich abandoned her shortly after Maisie was born—seven years ago—but she never filed for divorce and remained faithful to her vow. Until Bryce. He makes her feel treasured and alive again, fills the lonely spaces in her heart. Every stolen moment buries the truth even deeper. Until the day she knows. That one more sweet kiss will suffocate her soul, smother her faith.

A secret child…
Bryce Kinnerly’s extreme adventure photos have graced the pages of several national magazines. He’s traveled the globe in his quest to capture the perfect shot, the one that would make him forget the beautiful blonde woman who stole his heart and then disappeared. Bone-weary, he accepts their mutual friend’s offer for a breather in the wilds of Montana and stumbles upon Tristyn and…her daughter?

Will deception crush their love…
How could she have kept the truth from him? Especially after he’d bared his heart, his dreams. He’d been so certain of the Lord’s will for them. How could he have gotten it all wrong?

Or will truth and faith prevail?
As they work together for the Cowboy Jamboree, can Bryce forgive Tristyn’s deception? Can she forgive herself? Will Tristyn’s renewed faith grant them a second chance at a forever love this Christmas?

cover for Her Cowboy Forever by Dora Hiers

From Combat to Cowboy…After his discharge from the Marines, Ryder Jenson arrives home in Montana armed with a business plan and…his niece. To activate his Combat to Cowboy program, though, five-year-old Sophie needs a nanny, and he knows just the person to fill that role. Eden Milano…the girl next door. The woman he’s never forgotten. The memories of her golden hair and sweet smile were what kept him alive during the darkest seasons of his career.

She’s never fit in…until now. Eden never knew what a real family was until Ryder hires her to care for his adorable niece. The handsome cowboy made the teenage Eden’s heart throb. Even more now that he’s back home, changed, less angry with the world, making the cowboy more treacherous to her vulnerable heart. She’d already given up on love and even his rock-steady faith can’t alter her choice or the promise she intends to keep.

A baby, a grieving child, a dedicated cowboy, and the woman who loves them all…How can Eden explain the child pledged to another? Will Ryder fire her from the only job she’s ever truly enjoyed? Is their love and faith strong enough to overcome all the obstacles?

Part of The Potter’s House Series Two...stories of hope, redemption and second chances.
