"Disclosure (in accordance with the FTC’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising”): Many thanks to Propeller Consulting, LLC for providing this prize for the giveaway. Choice of winners and opinions are 100% my own and NOT influenced by monetary compensation. I did receive a sample of the product in exchange for this review and post.

If you asked most women, they'd probably tell you they like a little romance! I mean, just look at a few of the movies that most of us just cannot seem to get enough of- The Notebook, Titanic... it's all about the love. And for the reader, it doesn't stop at the movies either, we love reading a good love story as well.

But honestly, as much as I adore love stories, I find I don't really read a ton of romance! Why? Most of them are just a little too steamy for my tastes. Now, I realize that some women like that, but it's not for me... I want a nice G-rated romance with a great story...something I don't feel the need to hide if someone walks in! And good, wholesome romance novels for adults can be a little difficult to find. This is why I'm excited to share with you one such series that fits that need, the Love Inspired series:

Love Inspired® books offer wholesome, faith-based entertainment for women that nourishes the soul as it affirms the values of devotion, hope and love. Books are available online and in-store. Love Inspired readers believe hearts can heal. Love Inspired stories show that faith, forgiveness and hope have the power to lift spirits and change lives—always.

This series has been around for quite some time, so you may have already heard of them. In fact, you may have even read a few. I know throughout the years I've picked up a few at the book store and yard sales as well... and I love them. Now, I'll admit, sometimes they may be just a little cheesy... but such is the way of romance novels, right? Call me crazy, but I don't mind a little cheesiness in this type of book! The great thing about the Love Inspired series is the large variety. This isn't a series in the sense that they are different stories with the same characters, they're not at all. In fact, they're not even written by the same author. Instead they offer a variety of stories by a variety of authors- some with an Amish theme, some a little country, some a little modern... but the one thing they have in common is that  they are filled with love stories sure to inspire.

And there is always something new. Every month, 6 new books are released and have a shelf life of just one month! If you're a speed reader who goes through books like nobody's business like myself, this is certainly a plus... there is always something new to read. Books can be purchased individually or as a set! Just take a look at the variety of this month's selection:

Martin's Crossing
Brenda Minton
When Oregon Jeffries introduces rancher Duke Martin to the daughter he never knew he had, can they move beyond the mistakes of their pasts and possibly build a future together?
Cedar Springs 
Felicia Mason

Home to Dover
Lorraine Beatty

Missy Tippens

Having given up her child for adoption years ago, Dr. Violet Remy is given a second chance at the family she's always longed for when new daddy Jake West seeks her help in raising his adorable baby niece.
The Donnelly Brothers
Jean C. Gordon
Single mom Becca Norton is fighting Jared Donnelly for the preservation of her neighborhood, yet when she must battle for custody of her children, can this former bad boy come to her family's rescue?
Patricia Johns

Firefighter Matt Bailey needs a fresh start in a new town. But he can't abandon the boy he once found on his doorstep—or the boy's amazing adoptive mom. Despite his past mistakes, can he be the hero they both need?
