Jump on the comment board today for the after Valentine's Day special give away of Becky Wade's My Stubborn Heart.
Hook Factor? She had me at the prologue! I'd say that is a major accomplishment. A prologue that can make this mama giggle on the first page remembering how I prayed as a young woman for a husband, and pull my heart in on the second page about how I pray for Godly spouses for my children is crazy hook! Seriously giggle. Then sigh.
Sweetheart Factor? Oh yeah! Kate Donovan is a mix of change factor that says Anne of Green Gables, yet the beauty and spunk of Audrey Hepburn. And Matt Jarreau, well, I've not read such a well crafted male character in a long time--bravo Becky for the masculine viewpoint and major SWOON FACTOR!
Nothing says Valentine's Day like My Stubborn Heart!
Back Cover Blurb:
Kate Donovan is burned out on work, worn down by her dating relationships, and in need of an adventure. When her grandmother asks her to accompany her to Redbud, Pennsylvania, to restore the grand old house she grew up in, Kate jumps at the chance.
Upon her arrival in Redbud, Kate meets Matt Jarreau, the man hired to renovate the house. Kate can't help being attracted to him, drawn in by both his good looks and something else she can't quite put her finger on. He's clearly wounded--hiding from people, from God, and from his past. Yet Kate sets her stubborn heart on bringing him out of the dark into the light...whether he likes it or not.
When the stilted, uncomfortable interactions betweenKate and Matt slowly shift into something more, is God finally answering the longing of her heart? Or will Kate be required to give up more than she ever dreamed?
Enjoyability Factor: A "10" on the light hearted scale!

I'll go first:
Yes, I save old cards and reread them! (I'm a total sap!)
Yes, I had a list--then one day I realized he was "the one" but he didn't show up in the exact vision I'd created--no wonder I didn't recognize him at first!
I knew my spouse before I went to college--acquaintance only. I drove 16 hrs away to attend a church college in Kansas. Charging toward the Ad building to register at 5pm before the doors closed, he was the first person I met along the sidewalk. I said, "Hi Ted." He said, "Hi, Anne." Then he proceeded to visit my room several times a day to see if my roommate had arrived (he had dated her)--but she had apparently gotten engaged to someone else and never showed up. But Ted kept visiting me...and the rest is HIStory....
