Historical Romance

Coming Soon
He’s trying to find a hero within and she’s pretty sure it’s a lost cause, but sparks are bound to fly when this opinionated country girl and an arrogant city boy team up to save a children’s clinic from bankruptcy.

Coming November 1st is the second book in the Mitchell's Crossroads series. Charming the Troublemaker picks up right where A Twist of Faith ends. I am so excited! These two are bound to be a great pair. 

Pepper writes stories that are filled with faith, tragedy, humor, romance, betrayal, forgiveness, pain, healing, and redemption. With a style and form that grips the heart, Pepper's stories are some of the most relatable that I have ever read. She doesn't shie away the hard subjects. She writes from the heart and with what I truly believe to be inspired by the Holy Spirit. Her words ring true and touch a deep level of the soul. She truly is the "Queen of Swoony" and infuses a lot of romance and PURE passion into her stories. The kind of romance that honors God and the individuals. 

I also work for Pepper...Lol! I have been her Virtual Assistant for about 5 months now and I love every minute of it! She is a joy to work for and blesses me so much. She is patient, understanding, a great teacher, full of creative ideas, and hates boxes...You know like spreadsheets...So that is what I am for. We complement each other very well...I only wish we didn't live so far apart. Thankfully I get to hug her in person in just a few days! YAY!!! 

If you have not read any of Pepper's books yet, I encourage you to give them a try! Check out the sneak peek below for a taste of #britallachian romance. 

Just the Way You Are Excerpt 

“So, are you ready for this dance?”
She shook her head, palms splayed in the air. “No, Wes. I only agreed so we could get away from Lady MacBarry. It’s not a good idea for me to dance with you. With anyone. In fact, I can’t.”
He captured her wrist in a light hold, lingering a moment in the tempting trace of mint accompanying her. Perhaps the dance would prove her duplicity? Surely she wouldn’t flounder if it was all a game. “One little dance? You’ve already agreed to it, you know. One try won’t hurt.”
“There are some things in life that really aren’t worth trying. Not even once. One is sky diving. The other is giving a pack of bubble gum to a two-year-old.” She looked out over the ballroom, worry lines deepening. “I’m pretty sure dancing with me might be a third.”
A hunch, or perhaps his spirit, nudged him to toss aside his fear. See her as the person she portrayed, true and genuine. In fact, he almost needed to believe it. “I’ll guide you.”
She studied him for a full fifteen seconds as if measuring his sincerity as much as he was hers, then a timid light flickered in her eyes. Faith. In him. His chest expanded with purpose.
“I won’t let you fall, Eisley.”
“Are you sure you want to risk these”—she pointed to the black heels on her feet—”chopping off a few of your toes?”
“I have ten of them and they are at your disposal. You may bruise them all you like, but I ought to warn you.” He leaned close and glanced down at his open palm in invitation. “I’m a very good teacher.”
Her eyes grew as wide as a two pence, hand paused in the air as if she wouldn’t commit. He forced every ounce of confidence into his expression. Why did helping her somehow feed the wounded man inside of him?
She stared at his outstretched hand, bottom lip caught between her teeth. His airway tightened. He’d wait for five minutes, palm outstretched like a beggar, if she’d agree. For some reason, his faith depended on it. Faith in the new man he wanted to be.
She put him out of his misery soon enough. Her hand slid into his and a sudden calm fell over him. Like the final cut to a movie. He led her to the middle of the room and placed his hand to her waist.
She dutifully cupped her left palm on his shoulder, clasped her right hand in his, and raised an eyebrow in challenge. “Ready or not?”
His grin spread wide and the dance began.
