Intermission by Serena Chase
Releases Nov 12!
We are starlight on snow. The reflection of something already beautiful—absorbed, reflected, and remade into something . . . more.
And this kiss . . .
This kiss is everything I’ve needed to say . . . and longed to hear.
Sixteen-year-old Faith Prescott eagerly awaits the day she will exchange her small Iowa hometown for the bright lights of Broadway, but her success-driven parents want her to pursue a more practical career, labeling “artsy” people—including their daughter—as foolish dreamers worthy of little more than disdain.
When Faith meets nineteen-year-old Noah Spencer she discovers someone who understands her musical theatre dreams . . . because he shares them.
Faith’s mother despises everything about Noah—his age, his upbringing . . . even his religious beliefs—and she grasps at every opportunity to belittle his plans to study theatre and pursue a stage career. When those criticisms shift further toward hostility, resulting in unjust suspicions and baseless accusations, an increasingly fearful stage is set for Faith at home, where severe restrictions and harsh penalties are put in place to remove Noah Spencer from her life.
But Faith has never connected with anyone like she has with Noah, and no matter how tight a stranglehold her mother enforces to keep them apart, Faith will not give him up. Behind the curtain, Faith’s love for Noah continues to grow . . . as does her determination to hold on to her dreams—and him—no matter how high the cost.
Most Glorious Land by Jill Penrod

Taken from his home in his youth, Nikolai is now a guard protecting the royal mistresses in the Most Glorious Land of Long.

He manages to rescue two of his charges, and with the help of a woman from his past who despises him, he works to restore the girls to safety and aid those missing, but secrets from his past, as well as secrets within the House of Long itself, threaten the entire Glorious Land. Can one tired, broken guard, even with TrueGod at his side, restore the kidnapped souls? And where does his allegiance truly lie? Nikolai must answer these questions and more as he takes a trip into a painful past and faces people and places he thought gone from his life forever.
Take another journey to the Land of Balia in this installment of the Tales of Balia, Christian fantasy and romance.
Follow the Firefly by Jill Penrod
Releases Dec 22!
Finn Jansen isn’t broken. Yes, he lost his mother. Yes, his dad and brother had their issues. Yet none of it was about Finn, and he hates that everyone sees him as broken. But Piper Johnson, a girl he barely knows, suspects there’s more to Finn. Unfortunately, Finn is her sister’s best friend, and her sister is jealous, so Piper has to watch Finn from afar through middle and high school, rarely able to participate in his life. Worse, she’s smart and moves ahead in school, so she can’t participate in anyone’s life. Loneliness becomes the only sure thing in her world.
But Finn Jansen is indeed broken, and God wants to fix him, which means events fall into place that stretch Finn to his breaking point and beyond. He finds himself a foster child living next door to his best friend, but even the blessings there can’t quiet the voice inside that tells him he’s a monster, that his family’s hardships are his fault and he will never be worthy of love.
Piper is the only one who can bring Finn around, and he’s the only one who can see her true value and cure her desperate loneliness. Through a series of painful events, God pushes them together toward a situation where each must put him or herself aside and look out for someone else.
Follow the Firefly is book three in the Terry’s Garden series, stories about a love that touches generations and the garden where God heals broken hearts. Christian fiction for teens and the young at heart.
