Book Description

Will’s advances, twice denied, at a dance in Fort Benning, Georgia thirty years ago became a Legend of the Golden-eyed Princess to his sons. Caroline’s faith and determined loyalty to her fiancé caused her to reject the, now well-known, British actor who finds himself recaptured by her memory. A chance meeting plummets them into romance.

Will has much to hide in his past life, and is fairly confident of his privacy. His veneer is shattered when he finds Caroline knows his darkest secrets — through supernatural means.

Can he overcome the hurdles of loving a woman who can’t be trifled with?

Can Caroline move past her late husband’s infidelity and desertion to give herself fully to Will’s demanding adoration?

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Enjoyable Read February 8, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Deb Kemper's Mallory Ridge drew me in and made me feel like part of the family protrayed in this novel. Kemper's artful craft kept me turning pages well into the night. A delightful read for romance readers, horse lovers, and dog devotees. Don't miss the trip to Mallory Ridge.God's Little Miracle Book II

5.0 out of 5 stars Fresh Romance for A Lifetime of Joy February 28, 2012
Rarely do I read the romance genre. Usually the books are sappy and the love too easy. Mallory Ridge is REAL. I could see this happening in real life. Using believable characters and realistic settings, I fell into this story with abandon, reading late into the night just to finish. Deb Kemper paints a picture I am able to place into my head of her main characters, what motivates them, and how they handle the trouble they face. Life is not easy, but life can be good is the message I took away. The faith they share is real and honest. The pain touched my heart as I hurt with the wife as she lost her husband and had to face a world not knowing what was next. Dating, at 50? Oh My!!! It took courage, the counsel of friends, and becoming vulnerable to continue, but the main character did. I loved her persistence, her willingness to love again, and her trust in herself as she stepped into the unknown. The Christian perspective is not overly unbearable as in some books I just plain put down. Hate preachiness!!! I am glad I spent the time to fall into Deb's world, created from her heart and mind, for an audience who loves to read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Chance meetings August 14, 2013
By Clein
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A chance meeting of 2 young adults turns into a mature love as the 2 have another chance meeting. This book is enjoyable to read, but it is an unashamedly Christian book. Not all of its theology will fit the reader's preference, but it does make for a lovely story.

2.0 out of 5 stars A Little to Much "Preaching" For Me March 9, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have no problems with Christian Romance at all. I have to be honest that there have been some really great Christian Romances yet this one did not hit that mark for me. I hate when I read a story and the word is so apparent that it takes away from story. I just felt as though this book forgot that there was a story somewhere within the book.

In truth the book ended as if the characters lives never saw any type of discomfort, or any of the challenges that we normally face in life. I am sorry I just did not like the book or the message.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved this Book!!!!! June 2, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I thoroughly enjoyed Deb Kemper's Mallory Ridge. It was such a clean, Christian romance book. I fell in love with all of the characters. I felt like I knew them. It was a hard book to put down and I was so sad when it ended. I would hope the author would make this a series. I feel like she could write more books using the other characters. I am going to recommend this book to all my friends.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not a Typical Christian Romance December 27, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've read my share of Christian romances and most seem boiler-plated and formulaic. Mallory Ridge is far from either of those descriptors. It is a love story in the strictest sense of the term...not only the love found between a man and a woman, but Redeeming Love as well. The life struggles portrayed are far from fiction; any number of us have experienced hurt, betrayal, rejection, abuse, unrequited love, and more, and Kemper presented these in situations that seem real and believable. Woven throughout the story is strong faith, a faith so strong that it sometimes seems impossible or improbable. However, this is the strong faith in a God that can do immeasurably more than we can hope or imagine that I believe most Christ-followers strive to achieve. In that sense, the story is extremely inspirational, lending to self-examination of our own faith journeys. This is Kemper's first novel, and she will most certainly continue to hone her craft in subsequent works.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice love story August 9, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As a love story, it was very enjoyable, including all the twists and turns. A number of places had awkward wording, incorrect verb tenses, an only near the end did it get in the way of the story flow. There are no cliff hangers at the end, thankfully, yet the ending seemed somewhat abrupt. Those are my only gripes. The story is great, and reeled me in all the way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Throbbing With Sexiness--DEEP Love Clean. Do it! February 20, 2012
Romance novels? NOT my genre. I made an exception--a very HAPPY one as it turns out. I got the book while sipping my morning counterfeit (herbal) coffee and carelessly glanced the intros. "A husband who gives her freedom to write and romance to love by." Is that FRESHNESS I smell? If this girl (It's alright; I'm 82) can turn a word, maybe she can do it for a phrase? Or even a fresh book? Wouldn't THAT be a feat in this robotic-driven culture? Next page, please.

My "coffee" got cold. I glanced down at the page number and had run past the speed limit! I had work to do! I did it. Then I went over the limit again--right on past my bedtime, hanging out with the Ridge folks. HAD to know how it ended--ya know? Through several switcheroos to a doozy at the end. Know what? A few hours I forgot about politics, war, and violence. Only people in love sweet Love.

The freshness carried me sidling and sashaying smoothly all the way through. Kinda like swaying in the saddle on my big Tennessee Walker. (I'm DREAMING--about owning the horse, I mean.)

All nice and spicy with nary a corny-horny porn particle! (How does she DO that?) Two people nose deep in previous marriage disaster-pools manage to find the guts to give love another go--and WHAT do you know? Will and Caroline pull it off--and get it on (in a proper manner, mind you). Then they get the satisfaction parents live for when they see their children picking up on what they're now DOING RIGHT in this relationship. They're fully persuaded their love is Super-charged with Super-Love that is theirs forever.

So she DID pull it off. Quite a feat! Repeat--please. The only reason I give it 5 stars? Nowhere to give it 10. WAY TO GO, Lady Kemper. Shalom be yours for number 2--and 3 AND 4...

Thomas Pelham Gross,
Author, poet and songwriter

More About the Author

Internationally published author and poet, I'm now a displaced Southerner from northwest Florida. Kansas City, Missouri is currently my home with my husband and three dogs.
I love to write but hate chasing publishers and editors. The first one tied my hands for a year with a promise and a smile. So in retaliation, my husband and I began Charlie Dawg Press and are publishing for the general market. It's great fun; we're able to help other good authors get their work formatted, edited and into print. We're an independent press with six authors, currently.

All my books and contributions to anthologies are available on in print and Kindle e book. Visit my website at
I love a good story!
