His life consists of big secrets in a big mansion and only one friend.

Now through a twist of fate, Wesley meets someone who know his hero Jack Mackey—a real-live relative. Soon Wesley finds himself in more of an adventure than he bargained for...an exciting journey of shipwrecks, venomous snakes, and kidnappers...and the legendary curse of the Serpent Tide.
Josi Kilpack's Unsung Lullabye is an LDS romance.
Stepping over the threshold seemed symbolic of a certain level of acceptance—a joining of the hopes and dreams formed within these walls to the bitter reality that those dreams were dead. They would not have a child-not ever.
For years, Matt and Maddie have held onto their hope of becoming parents. Now, suddenly faced with the reality that they will not have a child together, Matt is shocked to discover that the consequences of a past mistake may change their lives forever. Having completed the steps of repentance years earlier, Matt has chosen not to tell Maddie about his prior misuse of intimacy. But how can he tell her now- especially when she seems locked inside her own sorrow? In this story of loss, forgiveness, and perseverance, a romantic beginning transitions into a true love story made stronger through the trials the characters face and overcome together.
