A Dozen Apologies – Book 1 in The Heart Seekers Series

dozen apologiesMara Adkins, a promising fashion designer, has fallen off the ladder of success, and she can’t seem to get up.

In college, Mara and her sorority sisters played an ugly game, and Mara was usually the winner. She’d date men she considered geeks, win their confidence, and then she’d dump them publicly. When Mara begins work for a prestigious clothing designer in New York, she gets her comeuppance. Her boyfriend steals her designs and wins a coveted position. He fires her, and she returns in shame to her home in Spartanburg, South Carolina, where life for others has changed for the better.

Mara’s parents, always seemingly one step from a divorce, have rediscovered their love for each other, but more importantly they have placed Christ in the center of that love. The changes Mara sees in their lives cause her to seek Christ. Mara’s heart is pierced by her actions toward the twelve men she’d wronged in college, and she sets out to apologize to each of them. A girl with that many amends to make, though, needs money for travel, and Mara finds more ways to lose a job than she ever thought possible.

Mara stumbles, bumbles, and humbles her way toward employment and toward possible reconciliation with the twelve men she humiliated to find that God truly does look upon the heart, and that He has chosen the heart of one of the men for her to have and to hold.

The Love Boat Bachelor – Book 2 in The Heart Seekers Series

Romance is a boat bachelor image

After the love of Brent Teague’s life came back into his world only to marry someone else, Brent is through with women. He might be through with being a pastor, too.

Brent was so sure that God brought Mara Adkins home to him so they could marry and live happily ever after. Six months after her wedding to another man, that theory is obviously a dud. If Brent could be so wrong about that, who’s to say he’s not mistaken about God calling him to pastoral ministry?

Tired of watching Brent flounder for direction, Brent’s feisty older sister boots him out of Spartanburg and onto a cruise ship. Brent’s old college buddy manages the ship’s staff, and he’s thrilled to finagle Brent into the role of chaplain for the two-week cruise.

As the ship sets sail, Brent starts to relax. Maybe a cruise wasn’t such a bad idea after all. But there’s just one little thing no one told him. He’s not on any ordinary cruise. He’s on The Love Boat.

What’s a sworn bachelor to do on a Caribbean cruise full of romance and love? He’ll either have to jump ship or embrace the unforgettable romantic comedy headed his way.

Help Us Find Mara’s True Hero…

ADA 1x0.72A DOZEN APOLOGIES is such a creative concept. I invite you to share in this sometimes funny, sometimes sad, but always entertaining story woven by twelve different authors.

The lead character, MARA ADKINS, is not the same person today that she was in college. In a ‘Mean Girls’ meets ‘Touched By An Angel’ journey, she sets out to try and right some of the wrongs from her past by apologizing to twelve men she deliberately and cruelly hurt. There’s just one little problem—she’s lost her job, is broke, and had to move back in with her parents. Any job at all looks good at this point if it’ll put gas in her car. Or so she thinks.

Follow Mara’s antics as she takes on unique jobs…and loses them. Meet the men from her past who have done their little bit of growing up. And best yet, help us finish the book!

This is how it works:Hearts

– Starting January 20th – February 5th, you can read the chapters (one posted each weekday) at
– At the end of each chapter you’ll find links to other stories, including Mara’s daily journal, interviews with the ‘heroes’, and special blogs from the authors.
– The authors will not be revealed for now because once all the chapters have been posted, we’ll ask our readers to vote for their favorite hero. — who will get the girl!  That’s right, you get to pick the HERO (and that author will have the privilege of penning the finale chapter)!

There’s a catch though, and a BONUS: The book will be released on February 14th and is the ONLY place you can learn which hero is chose BUT the book will be available for FREE through the Valentine’s weekend.

Spread the word, read the chapters, pick your hero, and VOTE!
