THE WEDDING KISS
Against the backdrop of 1901 Eureka Springs, Arkansas, and the surrounding countryside, one simple kiss draws two people into a discovery that will forever change their lives.
Marriage seems the only option for Keara McBride and Elam Jensen after Keara’s father gambles away her home and ends up in jail, and Elam’s children need a mother’s care. When the Jensens seal their vows at the altar with a kiss, however, their marriage of convenience seems much less convenient. The first kiss they share before a church filled with witnesses ignites a beacon of attraction that leaves them both feeling guilty. Elam’s wife, Gloria–who was also Keara’s best friend–has been dead less than a year. How can they betray her like this? And yet…oh, that kiss. When a stranger who bears a striking resemblance to Gloria shows up injured on the front porch on Elam and Keara’s wedding night, the whole family is thrown into confusion, suspense and danger. But does this stranger also hold a key to the Jensens’ future happiness?
About the Author:
Cheryl (one half of Cheryl and Mel Hodde who write as Hannah Alexander) remembers composing songs and stories before she knew her ABC’s. When she wrote her first romance novel in 1985 she realized that no romance, and no life, can be right without Christ at the center, and so that was how she wrote—with Christ at the center. After she and Mel got married in 1995, they worked together on rewrites of her previous manuscripts. This time, when she marketed them, they began to gain notice from publishers. Three of her first novels, entitled The Healing Promise, Ozark Sunrise, and A Living Soul have now been published by Heartsong Presents under the name of Hannah Alexander.
