The Outlaw's Second Chance (Love Inspired Historical)

 When Cort Stanton and Aubrey Huxley try to claim the same land in the Oklahoma Land Run, Cort offers a deal—one that could help him keep his freedom. After taking the blame for his brother's crime, Cort needs to lie low, so he gives Aubrey the land for her horse ranch…if she'll hire him. Now he just has to avoid growing too close to the gorgeous seamstress, who can never know his secret.
Aubrey refuses to depend on any man, even one as handsome and kind as Cort. Yet, as they work together to make her dream a reality, it's impossible to imagine life on the prairie without him. And though Aubrey knows Cort has secrets that stand between them, she can't help but wish she could stake a claim on his heart.

Forever Friday

Every Friday, a postcard.
Every Friday, a love poem.
Every Friday for sixty years.

Adam Colby is just doing his job, sorting through the unsold Alexander belongings after the estate sale. He is unprepared for what he finds in an old photo album, overlooked by the bargain hounds and treasure hunters—six decades of postcards and poems from Gabe Alexander to his wife, Pearl. The mystery of the Alexanders’ love entices Adam, a man unhinged by divorce and puzzled by the depth of commitment that he finds in the unabashedly romantic cards.

Forever Friday invites you to travel back in time to the early twentieth century Texas Coastal Bend where a young couple—Gabe and Pearl Alexander—are swept up in a miraculous love. As the heartwarming, pulse-quickening story of their relationship develops through Gabe’s poems, the Alexanders reveal a new way to consider what it means to be truly devoted to each other. Could the secrets of their love affair, laid to rest twenty years ago, hold the key to one man’s future?

Praise for Forever Friday
Forever Friday is a compelling, poignant story about soul mates.  Timothy Lewis writes with Southern charm, emotional intensity, and inspired insight about the passage of time that might cause a marriage to falter.  A must read for those who believe in the endearing and eternal power of hope.”   
—DeWanna Pace, New York Times and USA Today best-selling author of A Texas Christmas“In this day of disposable relationships, along comes a beautiful tale of lifelong love between two soulmates. Drawing from his own personal pain and disappointment, Timothy Lewis brings to life real characters in a page-turning romance that will keep you holding your breath in anticipation. Forever Friday makes you want to find (if you haven't already) your own lifelong soul mate to cherish forever. There is something to be said in defense of everlasting love, and Timothy Lewis says it stunningly.”
—Martha Bolton, playwright and author of eighty-eight books, including the novel Josiah for President

Ribbons, Lace, and Moments of Grace: Inspiration for the Mother of the Bride

 Take a major life transition, infuse it with every imaginable emotion, sprinkle it with 1,001 must-be-made-now decisions, and what do you have?

A wedding.

You're walking alongside your daughter as she dreams, plans, and organizes. You laugh and you cry. A lot. As you wade through the chaos, are you tempted to huddle in a corner with a box of chocolates?

This unique season doesn't have to bring on food binges and panic attacks. With the Lord's guidance, it can be an opportunity to walk with God in a fresh way.

Through Scripture, prayers, and the personal stories of women who've been there, Ribbons, Lace, and Moments of Grace encourages and uplifts the mother of the bride.

With insight and humor, Thomas reveals how God's peace and love can flow through you to your husband, your daughter, your future son-in-law, and others involved in this beautiful and sacred event.
