It's A Week of Passion at My Friend Amy's!

My Friend Amy is doing a special something to help promote one of her favorite authors. She is hosting a WEEK OF PASSION at her blog, with lots of little updates concerning Julie Lessman and her Christian Fiction books. She is also trying to draw more readers to Julie Lessman by hosting an out-of-this-world giveaway for her books, an Amazon gift card etc. etc. So I have to direct you over to My Friend Amy's blog so that you can see for yourself what all the fuss is about.

I visited Julie Lessman's website, and she likes to call herself an "Edgy Inspirational" author, because, well, she likes to have some fun, passion and romance in her novels, which are the Daughters of Boston Trilogy.

Her first novel, "A Passion Most Pure" is Book One, released in January of 2008 and can be found on Amazon. Here is the Product description:

"Refusing to settle for anything less than a romantic relationship that pleases God, Faith O'Connor steels her heart against her desire for the roguish Collin McGuire. But when Collin tries to win her sister Charity's hand, Faith isn't sure she can handle the jealousy she feels. To further complicate matters, Faith finds herself the object of Collin's affections, even as he is courting her sister. The Great War is raging overseas, and a smaller war is brewing in the O'Connor household. Full of passion, romance, rivalry, and betrayal, A Passion Most Pure will captivate readers from the first page."

So this seems like a classy read, with romance, historical fiction genre, and keeps God in focus.

I am sold!

A Passion Redeemed
Book 2 is Charity's story, a woman who puts her faith in her beauty rather than in God. It is a story of redemption and faith rising from the ashes of temptation, desire and shame.

Book 3, A Passion Denied, which is brand new, is the story of Faith and Charity’s little sister, Lizzie, a shy bookworm who dreams of a fairy-tale romance. It unfolds a man’s dark past and a young girl’s shattered dreams … and the God who redeems it all.
