Six authors team up in their new book, "The Lighthouse Brides Collection" published by Barbour Publishing Inc. to give us 6 Romances Develop at Historic Light Stations.
From the back cover: Love reaches lonely lightkeepers
For a ship in danger, a lighthouse offers hope and security. For the characters in this special collection of six stories, Gods light burns as brightly as the life-saving beacons they tend-but it is a lonely job, requiring much personal sacrifice.
Six historic American lighthouse settings from Florida to Oregon, Massachusetts to Texas, North Carolina to Wisconsin come to life in these faith-filled romances.
When Love Awaits by Lynn A. Coleman

A Time to Love by Sally Laity
Journey through simpler times and watch as God brings together adventurous-but lonesome-souls under a beacon of hope.
I have always enjoyed Lighthouses. First, their function, to provide a light in the darkness to prevent a disaster. Second their engineering beauty, I think each one of them is a design of wonder. So now we have "The Lighthouse Brides Collection" and I feel that the authors captured the design and beauty of the building and each of them wrote it into their stories. Six stories about Lighthouses, the men who tend them and the women who fall in love with them from all across America. I think this collection may be the best one yet. Each of the six authors give us such wonderful characters that we really do not want their stories to end. I enjoyed this book and look forward to more collections like this.

These 6-in-1 historical romances made me long for ocean and the calming sound of waves rushing to the beach. Each of these stories had very fragile and yet very strong women fighting the elements and the hardships of this world to bring a beacon of light to the dear lonely sailors stuck out there on the water. This collection is a perfect mix of mystery, comedy, drama, suspense and a whole emotional rollercoaster. I really liked each story the dilemma these woman were stuck in and their "prince on a white boat" coming to save them. I loved how Authors managed to spin a short story into such an active and not rushing love story. Get it, read it, and have fun sailing from lighthouse to lighthouse.
