Take a journey through The Kiss of Peace: A Contemporary Exploration into Song of Solomon and step into the vignette as if you’re an actor in a play. Discover your stage names, Love, and Beloved Solomon, and realize you are the Bride of Christ and Jesus Christ is your Groom. Find relevancy in reading Song of Solomon as a love-letter, and receive the divine love and peace your Groom offers.

Explore New Testament parallels, such as 1) your Groom’s pierced, beryl-set hands which drip with the sacrificial and priestly oils of frankincense and myrrh; 2) the marriage cup of wine, which is the believer’s Communion cup; and 3) Mt. Hermon’s secluded prayer garden, which is equivalent to the Holy of Holies, which has now been opened by Christ’s shed blood on Calvary’s cross. This is your personal journey of completion through your Groom Jesus Christ’s divine kisses of peace.

Featured Christian Fiction – Catch Me If You Can


A Nursery Rhyme Suspense

by Carole Brown

The big cat sat on the oversized rock, ears pointed toward the sky, every muscle taut, every sense at the ready.

“S-s-shut up and f-f-forget it. You’ve s-seen nothing and know nothing. I won’t warn you again. G-g-got it?”

The cat’s head swiveled, his ears twitching as if catching the hint of threat in the whisper. A soft hiss slid from his open mouth and reinforced the overtone of evil pressing in upon the scene. Within hours, lies and dark secrets are slithering all over the campground.

Coaxed into finding the animal killer at Jamieson’s Outfitters, Tara Layne, with her sidekick, Boet, is welcomed by a threatening whisper and the unfriendly eyes of a rugged and devastatingly handsome manager. Wesley Clarke, both interesting and frustrating, holds an attraction for Tara that is both primitive and exasperating. 

Intermingled with her search, Tara deals with her own heartbreaking buried secrets. When a strange old Native American probes into the recesses of her heart, he encourages her to face her bitter feelings. 

As Tara closes in on her search, she finds herself—and Boet—the target of someone who’s determined to outrun and outsmart her. Someone determined not to get caught.

His theme:  

Fun as fast as you can, you can’t catch me.

The question:

Can Tara run fast enough to catch this real live Gingerbread boy 

before he decides to get rid of her and Boet?

Christian Fiction Spotlight with Linda K Rodante


“Romance, tension, gangs, Church, contemporary, and eternal! Excellent read!!” Reviewer; FREE on Kindle Unlimited. $3.99 on Kindle. Also can be bought in paperback. Christian romantic suspense.

Kickboxer Kati Walsh’s one outreach is to her kickboxing friends at the gym, but she’s praying God will stir her heart again. She’s not sure, though, that the new assistant pastor and his friend Reece Jernigan are what she asked for—because Assistant Pastor Josh Corbin intends to win the hearts of the gangs in the northside neighborhood.

When Josh plans a prayer walk in the area, both the congregation and the police are wary, but Josh insists that prayer works. He believes in spiritual warfare—prayer, praise, and the Word of God. Reece, on the other hand, has been on the streets before, and his weapon of choice is a 9mm Glock. Two close friends with differing perspectives and both with an eye on Kati.

And they’re not the only ones. The gang leader has taken an unexpected interest in Kati, too.

Reviewer Lin Sollecchio: “I LOVED this story. The struggle within us that goes on when Satan attacks and tries to rob us of our faith and our ability to fight evil is very compelling. As a reader, I had a few ‘aha’ moments of clarity and frequently thought ‘Yes!’ … I was also teary eyed a lot…
