When their Christmas wedding preparations bring out painful memories of heartbreak, will Kate be able to forgive Jay — and herself — so they can finally be together?
There are so many stories in this collection! I had the opportunity to read several of them in advance of the release.
One Vow for September by Liwen Ho could be my favorite of her stories that I’ve read. It was a charming hate-to-love story about September and Tristan, co-workers thrown together to pretend to be planning a vow renewal ceremony. I enjoyed the repartee between them and the bits of Chinese culture that were interjected.
Of the other stories I read, I really enjoyed Braver with You by Jaycee Weaver as well. There were a few I read that were good but not spectacular, and many stories in the collection I have not read yet, by authors I enjoy. I am super excited to read Adoring April by Chautona Havig – this is a story in her Marriages of Conviction series, which has been amazing.
If you are a fan of Christian romance, I encourage you to grab this collection. There are bound to be stories in it you will enjoy!
