“Historical romance fans will adore this charming story.”
—Publishers Weekly


“Y’Barbo writes complete worlds into her books. Readers gladly visit places and people, witness characters’ predicaments and never want to leave. Filled with faith, fun and love, her characters are true to life and the reason you’ll eagerly await the other books in this promising Secret Lives of William Tucker series.”

“She was truly beautiful, though that was not what drew him to want to know more about her. This woman of wealth and privilege had something else about her—and inner beauty—which he couldn't quite define.”
Kathleen Y'Barbo
tags: love

“Flora Brimm was a Pinkerton agent's worst nightmare, the type of woman who would niggle her way into his thoughts at the oddest moments, work her way into his heart, and all the while irritate him beyond description.”
Kathleen Y'Barbo, Flora's Wish

“He is beyond our reach. We must give him to the Lord and pray the Lord gives him back to us again.”
Kathleen Y'Barbo, The Pirate Bride

“If you feel as if your legs have been cut from underneath you, get back up. If a door closes, don’t spend time staring at it. Be at peace and look for the open one. It’ll be there. Then, walk through it into the next phase of your life.”
Jake Byrne, First and Goal: What Football Taught Me About Never Giving Up

“Never accept limitations.”
Jake Byrne, First and Goal: What Football Taught Me About Never Giving Up

“Truth and the breastplate of righteousness—being right with God— strengthen us in all our endeavors. We need the shoes of preparation on any of life’s fields, along with the shield of faith—like football pads— to protect against the enemy’s attacks. The helmet of salvation, like a football helmet, also keeps us safe.
Praying each day and putting on the full armor of God will help us gain an automatic first down—a deeper connection in God’s zone— and a sure win on any playing field.”
Jake Byrne, First and Goal

“No one gets an easy pass in life. We all meet struggles while pursuing our dreams. Sometimes our knees shake when facing giants, and sometimes our feet get knocked out from under us. Those are defining moments.”
Jake Byrne, First and Goal: What Football Taught Me About Never Giving Up

“Plowing through life, you’re bound to run into obstructions. Some of life’s trials result from mistakes and missteps, and some from poor choices. I know about that too, because I’ve made my share of blunders and had to face the consequences.
Other times, the unexpected lands in your hands like a wayward ball and the “trouble” coming at you is like a 250-pound linebacker blitzing straight off the edge.
”
Jake Byrne
