Smile for Me
She is laid-back.
He is uptight.
Never the twain shall…kiss?
A deadline-driven workaholic assistant school principal who meticulously plans his schedule months in advance meets an easygoing art teacher and studio potter with no sense of time, living her life as the seasons come and go. When they cross paths again at the Summer by the Sea Day Camp sponsored by his church in Nassau, Bahamas, how can they get along if they cannot see eye to eye?
Tina MacFarland is laid-back…When invited back to the Bahamas for a second time two years after a disastrous mission trip there, potter and art teacher Tina MacFarland isn’t sure she wants to face the obnoxious assistant principal of the Chapel by the Sea Christian School again. The last time she encountered Byron Moss, he found fault in everything she did. It seems that nothing she ever does is good enough for Mr. Uptight, as attractive as he may be to her. Regardless of her personal concerns, they need art teachers at the Summer by the Sea Day Camp, and Tina answers the call to go. Surely God will help her last for four short weeks. What can possibly happen in a month? Nothing she can think of.
Byron Moss is uptight…Assistant Headmaster Byron Moss is at a crossroad in his career. On the one hand, he has worked very hard to get to this position at the Chapel by the Sea Christian School. One more step up from this assistant principal position, and he’d be in charge of the entire school. On the other hand, when Tina returns to Nassau, Byron suddenly feels hemmed in by his career choice. He is restricted from showing his transforming feelings for Tina. He fears he has taken a wrong turn in his career, and that if he keeps going on that route, he may lose his chances with Tina. More importantly, what is God’s will for his life? Somehow, he knows that Tina is part of all that. But she’s so…chaotic! And it drives him nuts. For the first time in his life, Byron is confused about what he needs to do.
Never the twain shall…kiss?Ah, Byron and Tina. How would they navigate the super-conservative work environment where office romance is frowned upon? Can they change the old rules? Or will the old rules change them? If you enjoy Smile for Me, you might enjoy the rest of the Vacation Sweethearts travel romances novels.

In her valley of discouragement…

She finds solace in the Great Smoky Mountains, living in quiet regret, not forgiving herself, and being unable to ask God to forgive her. She thinks her days are merely for survival, with her job at the funeral home not improving her grim outlook on life.
Now the most intriguing guy Phoebe has ever met is sharing her swing on her log cabin porch overlooking unparalleled spectacular vistas. She has no intention of seeking any friendship outside her small and safe circle of friends. She would rather be left alone to wallow in her own personal loss and remorse.
What is she going to do with her new neighbor encroaching in her private personal space? Why is he so friendly toward her? So delightful to be with? So charming? So inquisitive…?
Danger finds them on the mountaintop…
Keenan is the first person in a long time to make Phoebe consider the possibility of a new chapter in her love life. However, just when she begins to think about opening up her heart to him, the ex-soldier’s unfinished business pulls her into a crisis she has never experienced before, and danger comes knocking…on the wrong door.
