Summary

"Schober delivers a knockout debut. After She Falls is refreshingly unique and well-written. While the journey of faith and healing is set against the backdrop of the MMA, Schober's story world and characterization are vivid and evocative."--RACHEL HAUCK, New York Times bestselling author 
 
She's always had that fire in her. She just needs to find it again. 
 
Strong-willed Adri Rivera nearly achieved her goal of being a professional mixed martial artist, but then she fell in love with a man who knocked all the fight out of her. When their abusive, tumultuous relationship finally comes to a head, Adri flees with their young daughter to her small hometown in the mountains of Pennsylvania. There, she must face the people she left behind and put her broken life back together again.  
 
A hardened Max Lyons can't believe Adri is back in town after abruptly cutting him and everyone else off years ago. Despite the distance that grew between them, he feels compelled to help her regain her independence and offers her a job at his gym. But regaining each other's trust is another matter, made even more complicated by the lingering spark between them. As Adri dares to pursue her dream again, she trains for a big tournament with Max's help, but they'll both have to confront their own doubts in order to rise victorious. 
 
"Anyone who has watched a sports movie knows that the underdog will prevail, romance readers know that love wins, and Christian fiction readers know that God is bigger than any problem; Schober's debut novel is unique for being blend of the three."--LIBRARY JOURNAL

    This sequel to Comanche Moon is “a Texas-size love story . . . with a tough yet tender hero” (Georgina Gentry, New York Times–bestselling author of Apache Tears).   After a Comanche war party kills her husband and infant son, and makes off with her young daughter, Annie Bryce has nothing left to live for. Held captive herself by a brutal warrior, merely surviving every day is the only act of defiance she can muster.   Haunted by guilt for not preventing the Comanche attack on the Bryce family, Texas Ranger Hap Walker is surprised when he stumbles across the captive Annie three years later. Hardly recognizing the beaten down woman at first, he eventually brings her back to the “civilized” world, where she’s met with scorn and gossip by the townsfolk suspicious of her survival. Free of her bonds, Annie finds a new reason to live with the realization her daughter is still missing but alive. Hap agrees to accompany her through treacherous Indian Territory, hopeful to be a part of the new life Annie struggles to build. In a time and place of savagery and splendor, a saga of passion and courage comes flaming to life.   “This gripping story about the healing power of love will pull at your heartstrings.” —Joan Johnston, New York Times–bestselling author of Surrender   “Mills writes fine, humane dialogue and makes good use of history.” —Publishers Weekly

    Gemma Parks is known to the London elite as G. M. Parker, a columnist renowned for her commentary on the cream of society. Behind the scenes, she uses her talents to aid the Imposters in their investigations by gathering intel at events and providing alibis for the firm's members through her columns. Yet her clandestine work would be more exhilarating if it weren't for the constant presence of the gentleman who broke her heart. 
     
    Graham Wharton has never had eyes for anyone but Gemma, and she left his heart in tatters when she walked away from him. When the Imposters take on a new job to recover a kidnapped boy mistaken for his aristocratic cousin, Graham is determined to use the time with Gemma to not only restore the missing boy, but to also win back the only woman he's ever loved. As they trace the clues laid out before them, Graham and Gemma must devise a noble scheme to save the boy's life and heal their hearts.

    After her father’s heroic death through the treachery of a Russian femme fatale, young Solita found herself in the care of her ‘Aunt’ Mildred in Italy – the cousin of her father’s comrade in arms Hugo Leigh. 
    On Aunt Mildred’s death, a destitute, angry and hurt Solita travels to England to confront her errant Guardian, now Duke of Calverleigh, who had vowed to care for her but apparently neglected his duty for ten long years.
    It is true, he had forgotten her – largely thanks to his all-consuming infatuation with a beautiful Russian Princess. The chastened Duke determines to take Solita under his protective wing – and, as his charm and kindness dissolve her resentment, Solita’s acute intuition and talent for language soon expose the wicked Princess’s plot to overthrow the British Raj in India. 
    In this well woven tale of intrigue, Solita and her Guardian are both in mortal danger – and when she saves the Duke’s life, not once but twice, he sees this innocent young beauty in a Heavenly new light.
