More often than not, we stand in our own way to overcoming fear of success. We don’t forgive ourselves for mistakes and we seldom believe others can or would. All too often, the desire to have the chance at redeeming ourselves makes us pass up the very thing we crave.
In the Redemption series, each woman desperately longs to overcome her past – each of which revolves around their shared father, Devlyn Caracus. He’s terrible. Or was. But he died and now the Federal Government is searching for the women to collect on a bank robbery amount.
So book #1 Romancing Redemption, Rosie doesn’t believe she deserves romance.
Book #2 Riding for Redemption, Sara Beth loves riding almost more than herself. When she loses the opportunity to ever ride again, she has to decide if that’s okay or if she needs more in her life.
Book #3 Resisting Redemption, Lisa doesn’t want a family – she thinks – and she doesn’t want to fall in love. Love is messy and she likes things the way they are.
Book #4 Regretting Redemption, Mary didn’t have the same experiences as the other women growing up. The more she learns, the more guilt she feels. Can she overcome her part in her past or will it haunt her out of love?
Book #5 Rewarding Redemption, Jenni isn’t sure what’s going on, but finding out about four sisters could put a huge damper on her plans – to find the Caracus treasure and be free of Montana altogether. Do familial ties trap her right where she doesn’t want to be? And in love to boot?
See, in each story as with the overall story arc, there’s a significant amount of self-forgiveness that has to happen. And that’s how I see it with everyday themes as well.
Is there anything in your life that keeps you up at night while you worry about its resolution? If it’s something you did, forgive yourself and breathe. Redemption is easier to grant than receive. I don’t know why, it just is.
Have you forgiven yourself lately and how did it make you feel?
Thank you so much for having me! This was a fun topic to write about. Stay Alive!
This is the third book in a series where the plot points carry over. All plot points will be resolved by book FIVE - the end of the series. This is a sweet style romance. With her heart at war with her mind, Lisa’s need to chase dangerous fun over boring responsibilities tugs at her emotions. Love is the last thing she expects to find, especially with her past revolting against her future. The only love Ryan’s heart has room for is for his motherless son. But, when he finds himself yearning for Lisa, Ryan has to convince himself and her that he’s all the thrill she’ll ever need. Will Lisa’s past destroy their future before either of them can accept the true meaning of love?
