Welcome, Dora Hiers & Journey's Edge!

I'm delighted to introduce you to one of the bright stars of White Rose Publishing...Dora Hiers.

Dora has a freshly minted release, the second in her Marshals of Journey Creek series titled Journey's Edge! Dora's skill with romantic suspense is winning her much acclaim from readers and reviewers alike! Dora and I, along with fellow White Rose author Mary Manners and Thomas Nelson author Dorothy Love will be in Chicago, at the RT Booklovers Convention next week, discussing the topic of faith and romance. I can't wait to meet this remarkable woman in person. She's a treasure!

So...without further fanfare, let's meet Dora, and find out about Journey's Edge, and the heroine of her story, McKinley Frasier!!!

After a successful auditing career, Dora left the corporate world to be a stay-at-home mom to her two sons. When her youngest son didn’t want her hanging out at school with him anymore, Dora started writing heart racing, God-gracing books.

Dora belongs to the American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW) and the Carolina Christian Writers. Dora and her husband make their home in North Carolina. When she’s not writing, Dora enjoys reading and family gatherings. She despises traffic, technological meltdowns, and a sad ending to a book. Her books always end with happily-ever-after’s.

And now, here's a glimpse into the world of Journey's Edge!!

A Routine Audit? Hardly.

Red flags—including some goon who's following her—raise McKinley Frasier's suspicions that numbers don't add up at the insurance firm. When someone tries to snatch McKinley's daughter from school, she turns to police officer and ex-fiance, Renner Crossman—the cop who walked out on her a month before their wedding.

But Renner's not the same guy who broke her heart ten years ago. He calls himself a "new man." She trusts the new Renner with her daughter's safety...but what about her heart?

Let's meet the heroine of Journey's Edge: McKinley Frasier!

Hi. I’m McKinley Frasier. An Auditor with a CPA firm, not my dream job, but it pays the
bills and keeps a roof over our heads. I’m a mom to an adorable nine-year-old
daughter, Tessa. I’ve cherished a lifetime friendship, and I’m single by
choice. People may think I have my life together.


They’d be wrong. Right now I’m desperately ducking the creep who followed me to
the hotel, this week’s client, Malcolm Brugman. Or should I say, fraudster?

And avoiding the ex-fiancé who dumped me ten years ago, Renner Crossman, who
happens to be staying in the same hotel. Why am I thinking about Renner
Crossman now anyway? I haven’t thought of him in what? Two days? Not since his
totally-off-the-radar phone message. Yeah, well, that apology was about ten
years too late. Did he really think I would come running to accept his face-to-face

As if!

So explain to me how I ended up wrapped in Renner’s strong arms, hearing his heart
thump and shivering when his breath whispered against my hair? What is it about
him that latches on to my innermost dreams and desires and won’t let go? His
grin? His have-no-cares-in-the-world attitude colliding with my organized,
have-to-know-everything-beforehand outlook?

OK, so maybe I’m not totally over him. But I will be when he finds out about Tessa.
And Tessa’s father? It’s probably best not to go down that road…

Ooooooohhhhh! OK, I've snapped up my copy, and I can't wait to read it and post a review soon!!! Dora, thanks for visiting, and congratulations on the release of Journey's Edge - Can't wait for Journey's Embrace!!! God bless, and hug ya' in Chicago, lady!!!

  5. Loved the interview! McKinley's great - and Renner, well, he's just plain HOT! LOL I thoroughly enjoyed this edge-of-my-seat story...and then I realized I never read the first one...I hate it when that happens! time for me to read!!!

    1. Thanks, Donna. I'm so glad you enjoyed Journey's Edge...and Renner. lol

      I'm with you. I'm so far behind on my reading stack, I'm not sure I'll ever catch up. Somebody should have warned me that's what happens when you start writing. ;-)

  6. McKinley's got a lot of spunk and verve, doesn't she, Donna? :-) And I'm sure Renner is her perfect match! :-)

    1. From the moment Renner appeared on the page in Journey's End, I knew he would have his own story. I had to dig deep into Renner's past to find his perfect match. :>

  7. Sounds good. I'll have to check into this one.

    1. Hi Linda. I hope you have a chance to check out JOURNEY'S EDGE. Wishing you a joyous Resurrection weekend. Thanks for stopping by!
