A few years ago I found the author Rachel Hauck. I love the way she writes and the stories she tells. I have read almost everything that she has written (money becomes an issue when you can read a full book of hers in one day). When I was approaching the end of my reading list of books by her I knew it was time to broaden my horizons. But before that I found one more book by Ms.Hauck, A March Bride. I purchased the book that night on my kindle and realized that it was a part of a series. The entire series however was not by Rachel Hauck. The series is called A Year of Wedding Novellas and includes 12 books by 12 different authors. All of these authors have a similar writing style to Rachel’s and the same ideals (good, clean, Christian inspired romance). So from this series I have discovered 11 new authors that I like to read. I am not hooked to any of them the way I am Rachel (it’s a money thing, I assure you), BUT I am pleased to have new authors and books that I am reading. Check out these authors if you have liked Rachel Hauck or any other good, clean Christian inspired romance novels.

Have you read anything Rachel Hauck has written? If not, you are missing out! I love sweet romantic novels but I don’t want a book that is just dirty and nasty. I want a butterflies in your stomach romance based on God’s word. Ms. Hauck does an awesome job delivering just that!
I have read and fallen in love with a series by her and the third book comes out soon. So in preparation I have reread the first two books (yes they are that good). Check them out here!
Once Upon a Prince by Rachel Hauck is a story of a young prince who is about to become king. He is on holiday in Georgia and meets a lovely American whom he falls in love with. The country he is from has a rule that royal family members may not marry foreigners. After much time and debate the prince convinces the country to change the laws and he proposes to his American love.
Princess Ever After by Rachel Hauck is a story of an American girl who finds out she is the princess of a small European country. She must decide if she wants to accept her royal position or abdicate and stay a classic car mechanic in Florida. Through this decision she meets a young man from the European country she is a princess in and falls in love even though she doesn’t want to.
How to Catch a Prince by Rachel Hauck comes out February 24th!!! I can’t wait to download this book to my kindle and stay up all night reading it!
Yes I am a book nerd.
Well, when I finally found where everyone was getting their “Currently”s from (I’ve never been much into discover the “cool” thing until it is no where near new any more) I wanted to jump on. I also wanted to try to join other linky parties, BUT…all of the blogspot blogs are block from my school wifi. This may seem like no big deal to most of the American population. Use your home wifi is your response. I don’t have the internet at home. I am currently online using a personal hotspot through my phone (thanks Verizon!), but I hate to use all my data on blog entries. Today however, I will splurge!
Listening: I love Francesca Battistelli’s voice! It is gorgeous. And this precious song from the view point of the virgin Mary singing to baby Jesus warms my heart.
Loving: I am baking like crazy this weekend. I have a family party to go to and I am bringing three desserts (sugar cookies, brownies, and a peppermint flavored dip with vanilla wafers) and a cheese ball (which I have never made before—wish me luck!) I am also loving my husband, Kyle, and enjoying showering him with gifts this month. Check out Showing Love for 25 Days.
Thinking: I just finished a graduate paper and am soooooo happy about it! I will be finished with my masters in May and can hardly wait to have my life back.
Wanting: Starbucks, and who doesn’t. In college (the fun times of undergraduate) I would treat myself to a cinnamon dulce latte after I finished a hard test or big paper.
Needing: This week felt long. I mean really long. I didn’t know that five days could feeling like three weeks, but it did this week. I really need to relax and enjoy my weekend with a great new book. I finished a book last night (Sweet Caroline by Rachel Hauck) Any suggestions?
Favorite Tradition: My husband’s entire family gets together (about 40 of us) on Christmas Eve for dinner and a great game of Dirty Santa. I can hardly wait for the 24th to arrive!
