Dinah Hyland has plans for her life; normal plans—husband, home, lots of children. As she heads toward thirty, she begins to wonder not when, but if. Then tragedy strikes, and it’s no kids for her…ever.

Connor Marshall has plans, too--to remain a bachelor and teach in China--only to lose his dream when he becomes guardian to his late sister’s four small children.

What do you do when God steals your dream?

When Connor’s new family attends Dinah’s day care, tension between the two grows as she observes how inept he is with the kids... and he sees how good she is.  Did God give the kids to the wrong person?

Then a kidnapper who sells children to the highest bidder, a man who is willing to go to great lengths to get who he wants, threatens them all. Forced to work together for the sake and safety of the children, Dinah and Connor struggle toward each other and toward finding peace with God.

Libby Keating finds herself temporarily sharing a beautiful but tiny historic home in Philadelphia with her estranged identical twin. Less than 24 hours after her arrival, Libby trips over a dead body on the front stoop. As the murder mystery unfolds—with the aid of crossword puzzles the reader is encouraged to do—so does Libby’s back story, which includes a series of traumatic events that ruined her adolescence. Good Christian friends including her new neighbor, the handsome Drew Canfield, support her as she finds a way to love her enemies while standing up to them.

Rave Reviews: 

“Roper’s dialogue and character development are spot-on, which is no small feat, considering that Libby’s world is peopled with everyone from elderly patricians to two-bit gangsters…a pleasure from start to finish.” - Publishers Weekly

A suicide bomber blows up a hotel in Beirut, killing hundreds of people. A young American woman is kidnapped in Lebanon by terrorists. Connected or coincidence? Despite the government’s difficulty in locating her sister, Liz Fairchild, a reporter from the States, is determined to find her…regardless of the risks. Meanwhile, Sergeant John Cooper and his elite Special Ops team hunt down Palestinian extremists in possession of a new undetectable explosive that will change the “face of terror.” When Liz and Task Force Valor’s paths intersect, more is at risk than their separate missions. While maneuvering through hostile territory, Liz and John realize they need each other to survive. Their antagonism gradually gives way to cooperation—and something more.

Gayle Says:

Allah's Fire is a different kind of book for me. It's the first I've co-written (with former Army Ranger Chuck Holton), and the setting is international. Drawing on his extensive military background, Chuck created the heroes of Allah's Fire as a team of explosives experts tasked to discover the source of a new explosive. The female characters that I've written vary from an American reporter to ex-patriots living in Lebanon to Palestinian refugees. The phrase "ripped out of today's headlines" might be trite, but it sure fits this book!

Rave Reviews:

"Action-packed, authentic, and altogether satisfying" -James Scott Bell

"An action-packed story with real spiritual teeth" -Angela Hunt

She's always taken care of everything. Trouble is, no one seems to notice.

All Molly Gregory wants is a little respect. A little appreciation. Some token of acknowledgement that her three teenagers see her as more than their personal chef, chauffeur, and maid. It's not that she's asking for the moon!

When Molly finds herself having to deal with a stubborn father-in-law and a grieving mother on top of her three inconsiderate children, she decides to take a stand for right, rest, and mothers everywhere.

Something's got to give - and this time it's not going to be her!

Encouraged by her husband Pete, Molly announces to her three children that she's staging a walkout: no cooking, no cleaning, no laundry, no chauffeuring until the kids recognize how much she does and learn to honor her.

With Molly on strike, life in the Gregory household quickly dissolves into hilarious chaos. How long before the kids cry, “uncle”?

Rave Reviews:

“I just finished reading Enough! and LOVED every minute of it. It really moves and I haven't laughed so much in a long time! It was great! It also contained a lot of truth, which I greatly appreciated.” - Rose, PA

Rose helps those in pain. She's come to peace with the fact that some of her patients die.  But not like this. Not murdered.

Why would anyone want to kill Sophie Hostetler, a sweet woman who struggles with cancer? Rose doesn't know and isn't sure she wants to. Then, against her will, she's drawn deeper and deeper into the mystery of this wealthy, seemingly close family and their hidden resentments.

And then there's Jake Zook who touches Rose's heart in a way she can't understand - or resist.

Now Rose is caught. As secrets are revealed, two questions must be answered: Can the living find God's forgiveness for themselves and gain justice for the dead?
