Hi Cheryl! You should try "Scream of the Falcon" by RA Winters. It is a really exciting page turner. A great story that is meant for people who enjoy romance, high adventure, warfare and the like without all the smut. This new author has given adult christian readers a wonderful new addition to Christian Fantasy (think CS Lewis). This isn't child's play though, so working moms and dads alike (whether they work at home or in the workplace) can enjoy a story at the end of their day which moves along the lines of some of the best fantasy movies and books of our time without offending the doctrine of Christ. Think "Robin Hood" meets "Tristan & Isolde" with a pinch of "Narnia" and "Lord of the Rings" thrown in. Oh and by the way don't let the jacket "blurb" fool you - to me the publisher must have had a hard time summing up the richness of this book. The blurb didn't do the story justice! It caught my eye because of the cover picture and then the writing inside the pages. I was hooked as soon as I read an excerpt from the book. The author has a website too - its a really cool site for us Fantasy "nerds".

I love all the books by Laura Jensen Walker. LOL funny and not syrupy at all. Her first two: Dreaming in Black and White and Dreaming in Techicolor are my farovites. Rachel Hauck's Diva NashVegas is great as is Chateau of Echoes by Siri L. Mitchell. I'm loving these new romances that are smart and fun.

JMS Bell,

My daughter read your book. She wrote a review, and I posted it. She loved it! Let me know if you see this post. Her review should post sometime this week.

My daughter is twenty. She loves to read. I thought that it may not be my kind of book, but you had assured me that there were no explicit sex scenes. I took you at your word. I thought it may not be my kind of book, but I was reminded of something Leon Patillo said years ago. He said (I paraphrase), in the body of Christ there are different types of people. Some like mellow music -- such as Amazing Grace -- others like to get down -- songs such as Dance by Leon Patillo. I like both types of music, but I'm not that way about books. My daughter loves to read. Therefore it seemed to me that I could bless her and you at the same time. I'm more a "When Destinies Meet" kind of reader, but that doesn't make me better, just different, and God does allow us to be different. He loves variety. That's why there is such diversity (within the confines of holiness). Your book ministered to my child. She loved it. She said it made her want to go to the alter and repent. Repentance is always a good thing. Congrats! That's what literature should do. It should inspire us to be better. It should encourage us to keep our faith. Well done and God bless you! I will certainly tell others about your book. You and your work for the Lord are in my prayers.

Dear Treasures;
That I have been used by Him in at least one life is more than I could ever hope for. There have been others who have read my book and given me favorable verbal feedback. They enjoyed it and they liked the plot, the characters and ultimately God as the victor, but none have felt the call to repentance and that is what I feel The Lord's message through this book is. God Bless and thank you again.

Hi Cheryl. I'd like to recommend The Assignment and The Encounter by Susan Grogan available on Amazon - both are Christian Suspense with a romance story woven in.

I really love anything by Francine Rivers, Karen Kingsbury, and for a great NEW author check out Ransomed Dreams by Amy Wallace. It is a romantic thriller. She's really a great writer and her characters are believable.

Castle Lover says:
I suggest Sons of God by Rebecca Ellen Kurtz. It's the first of a five novel series. It's not listed as Christian fiction, but she's a Christian and it is evident within her writing. Some have said it's like Lord of the Rings but based on Biblical supernatural entities and prophecies about the rising of the N'filim before the final battle of Armageddon. It reminds me of Peretti and his writings on spiritual warfare.

There is a passionate romance but it's a subplot and the protagonist is committed to purity. It's an exciting read and very hard to put down once you've started. It's a romantic supernatural thriller.

The protagonist is a righteous N'filim female warrior of God (descendant of an angel and human written of in the Bible) who hunts down her fallen brethren with her brother. She makes her living as a treasure hunter but must return to Nineveh where an archaeological dig has stirred up some mysterious supernatural deaths.

All supernatural entities are ones that would be found in the Bible. Her N'filim live according to the Old Covenant laws but still cast out demons by the name of Jesus Christ. The book is a warning based on the author's own experiences of demonic deception - when she trusted signs and wonders rather than relying solely on the Holy Spirit's guidance. Her relationship with God suffered until she realized it wasn't God who had been giving the supernatural signs.

Too bad people find the need to reply inappropriately so that Amazon must remove the reply. I'm just sayin...

But it took Amazon three months to delete the 'offensive' post... what's that saying? And what did bert say?

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 28, 2011 6:01:25 AM PST
Those who requested the post be deleted, should answer that.

Clearly some things should be deleted. Outright rudeness to a member should be deleted. Calling names should be deleted.

I'm not in favor of an opposing view being deleted.

From creation to damnation and their fall from grace, Damned to Hell is a romance about Lilith- the first woman created before Eve, and Lucifer. It is written like a fantasy novel, not specifically a romance novel. (It doesn't have a happy ending-they were damned to hell afterall.) Chance Reed

Since May 2011, Amazon have also been pretty reliable about deleting posts where authors are promoting their own books outside the Meet Our Authors discussion, as this is against the Amazon Terms of Service. But this should only apply to posts after they started reinforcing the rules - bert's post was 2010.

If you like romance, adventure, and history, you should enjoy The Synagogue Savant by Lance Randall

From the Back Cover
Three groups of extremists chase a powerful symbol of Jewish nationalism across the Atlantic and throughout modern day Israel. Set in 1910, the Zionist movement, resisted by Arabs, driven by Jewish hardliners, and supported by Christian groups, is growing in influence. An aging, world-travelled businessman, an orphaned craftsman, and a beautiful young woman resist the forces struggling over Palestine and find excitement, purpose, and love.

The culmination of a lifetime of work by a South Georgia rabbi and his orphan protégé is stolen from a hidden workshop. Their gold re-creation of the ark and mercy seat is sought by three competing groups: An American-based Messianic Jewish secret society known as the Synagogue Savants, an extremist Zionist organization called the Am Ha-Aron, and an Arabic group named The Brotherhood of the Jihad. As control of the ark changes from group to group, the geo-political, religious, and historical forces are played out in a race to Jerusalem and then an escape to America. Drawn into the intrigue of prophecy and cross-cultural conflict, an unlikely friendship develops between two men, a Christian bond is cemented that transcends conflicting religions for two women, and the deepening love of a man and a woman drives the adventure to a suspenseful conclusion.

The Synagogue Savant raises questions and exposes possibilities that are issues a hundred years later in a modern day world dominated by religious fanaticism and political terrorism.

Hello, I was reading the posts here today. Is it not allowed to mention your own book. I don't want to cross any rules. I normally don't jump around inviting people to read my own books, but that remark about clean romance caught my attention.

I think it's very important to have romance but to do it in good taste and only wanted to offer a link to my book. If that is a new 'no no' from Amazon I have not heard about it.

I suggest you look at The Secret Never Shared. This is a multigenerational love story depicting religion at its best and worst. This is a sad novel with many inspirational stories intertwined. JD

Iola says:
Samantha - it has always been against Amazon's Terms of Service to promote your own book (or to promote any product that you might have a financial interest in, like a book your spouse wrote). But Amazon never really did anything about it, so a lot of the discussions ended up being nothing but 'buy my book! It's the best thing since Twilight/Da Vinci Code/the Bible!!' The discussions were overrun.

In May 2011, Amazon announced a crackdown and that 'shameless self-promotion' (their words) would no longer be permitted in the general discussions. They are very quick at deleting posts where authors mention their own works (even in a link or signature line), and have been known to formally warn people who continuously break the rules.

However, to give authors a place where they could promote and discuss their books, they created the Meet Our Authors forum - the link is at the bottom of the page.

Iola says:
Lance - are you sure you are not the Lance Randall who wrote this book? Same first name, live in the same part of the world... If so, I'd suggest you delete this recommendation and your review before Amazon does, because self-promotion is against their Terms of Service outside the Meet Our Authors forum.
