It is a wonderful story of hatred, prejudice, and the ability of love to conquer fears as an unlikely romance blooms, and love faces some pretty daunting odds in the era of the "flower children" of the late 1960's and early 70's. Liberation is an uplifting book showing the power of family, acceptance, and the triumph of the spirit. When starting over in a new country and with a new way of life, one family takes in an outcast, protects her, and makes her one of their own in more ways than one.

Kate has revised and re-edited another of her all time favourite books here at RAHP, A Greater Love, with another wonderful new cover featuring Julian. A Greater Love is the story of Rosalyn Grant, a talented writer, widowed, living alone in beautiful Ocean Breeze and loving it very much. It is a far cry from the place she used to be, putting up with a dying husband who only realized what he had in Rose when it was all coming to an end.

When Rosalyn finds herself involved as a witness of sorts in a neighbourís suspicious and untimely death, it triggers a chain reaction involving new friends, old acquaintances, and the possibilities of a new and very unexpected love. As Chief of Police in Ocean Breeze, David is good at his job, and yet, when his second in command, Lieutenant Erin Hanrahan, realizes the attraction between the David and Rosalyn is mutual, she decides to try her hand at a little bit of matchmaking....

Even so, after all is said and done, will a Christmas fling turn into real mess or a love for all time? ...
