Rescued from the edge of a cliff, the only choice left for Isabelle is a true leap of faith.
After the devestating loss of her mother, Isabelle Chevalier is determined to end her life when a stranger talks her off the ledge. She finds comfort in his kindness, and they share a strong connection. Isabelle, a non-believer, soon realizes this stranger is a childhood friend, Peter Stephens, whom she hasn’t seen since they were young. Peter is a man of strong Christian faith, despite having endured abuse at the hands of a Christian sect. Opposing beliefs don’t hinder their rekindling friendship—or their budding romance.
In spite of their attachment, separate family obstacles demand their attention. Peter’s past resurfaces when his sister returns from the very cult he escaped as a teenager. Isabelle’s father and maternal family are divided by differences in religion and clash over her mother’s recent death. During all of this, Isabelle fears her own beliefs and finds herself drawn to Peter.
Is it the Spirit of God that calls to Isabelle Chevalier, or is her obsession with Peter Stephens?
The Truth About Regret is a faith-filled, Christian romance where two childhood sweethearts have a second chance romance and a spirited young woman falls in love with God.
There’s something about a small town that whispers romance.
Perhaps it’s the night sky chuck full of stars that are undiluted by city lights.
Or, maybe it’s the history couples share growing up that makes love that much sweeter.
Perhaps it’s the slower pace, where love weaves itself into the fabric of laughter, heartbreak, hard times, and rocking on the front porch.
Whatever it is, it’s magical and I’m thrilled to share it with you in this new collection of small town romances.

Joseph, a master craftsman and carpenter, stokes the ire of his family when he weds his pregnant (and seemingly unfaithful) betrothed, Mary. Pious, devout, and guided by the dictates of Heaven, Joseph has no issue with taking Mary – who still claims to be a virgin – as his wife and committing himself to the protection of her child, whom he senses is extraordinary.
However, there are others who are also aware of how special the child is, and not all have its best interests at heart. Among these is the despot Herod, whose oppressive rule and wanton cruelty are legendary. Deeply troubled by a prophecy concerning a King to Come, the tyrant is committed to finding – and eliminating – this threat to his reign. (And, having already murdered members of his own family in order to maintain power, Herod has no qualms about killing a baby.) In addition, there are forces beyond the ken of men that also recognize the singular nature of Mary’s child, and which are determined to keep the salvation that the babe represents out of mankind’s reach.
All of these factions and more converge on Mary and Joseph as they trek from Nazareth to Bethlehem in hopes of starting a new life. On a journey fraught with peril, Joseph fights to protect Mary and her unborn child from danger on all sides, including the elements, bandits, and Herod’s legions – as well as an utterly evil and otherworldly demonic force determined to stamp out mankind’s only hope of redemption.
Armed with little more than his wits, his faith, and his carpenter’s hammer, Joseph must face impossible odds to ensure the safety and survival of not only his family, but mankind’s future…
