“A woman’s heart should be so close to God
that a man should have to chase Him to find her.”
— C.S. Lewis
Sigh. I couldn’t agree more. In fact, that’s the theme of my prequel novel to my Daughters of Boston series, A Light in the Window, a lesson that Southie rogue Patrick O’Connor learns all too well in order to win the heart of the love of his life, Marceline Murphy. Ironically, I had never seen this C.S. Lewis quote when I wrote ALITW, where the parish priest, Father Fitzgibbons, tells Patrick:
“Something tells me, my boy, that before a man can truly win the heart of a woman like Marceline Murphy, his own heart must be aligned with God’s …”
And honestly, isn’t that what Christian romance all about? Romantic love that’s not just a boy and girl or a man a woman, but as Ecclesiastes 4:12 says, “a threefold cord that’s not quickly broken.”
As an adult, I soon learned that true romance is spiritual as well as physical and emotional. And one pass through the “Song of Solomon” in the Bible told me that God was the biggest romantic of them all, deeply passionate in His love for each of us. Through our love affair with Him, Christian authors and readers have discovered that romance can transcend to another dimension where romantic passion and spiritual passion merge, creating a 3-D love story: the hero, the heroine, and the God that brings them together.
WHICH … is why I am so excited about an upcoming novel bundle release I am part of called HEART & SOUL with authors Sally Bradley, Naomi, Rawlings, Ruth Logan Herne, and MaryLu Tyndall. Five “deeply spiritual and utterly romantic” best-selling novels from five award-winning authors for only $3.99. Yep, you heard me right — that’s $16.00 of novels for only $3.99. But this is a limited-time collection, on sale from May 23 – July 9 only, so take advantage!
My book in the bundle is one hopefully all of you have read by now, A Light in the Window, which is Marcy and Patrick’s prequel love story that has won three awards and has 233 five-star reviews and a 4.7 rating on Amazon. But … if you haven’t, this is your chance to get it and four other AMAZING novels at the same time for one great price. Here’s the video my artist hubby did for ALITW using my daughter as the model for both the video and the cover, and I could be prejudice, I suppose, but in my opinion, it’s one of the best novel videos I’ve ever seen. Hope you think so too!
