In 1805 Salem, North Carolina, schoolteacher Clarissa Vogler enters into a forbidden understanding with an aspiring young artist. Before Daniel Kliest leaves to study under a Philadelphia master, he’ll ask the elders of their “plain people” Moravian community to take Clarissa’s name before the lot as his potential bride.

Then a surprise decision pairs Clarissa not with Daniel but with his older brother John, a surveyor called to share his faith with the Cherokee Indians. How can God ask Clarissa to set aside her own dreams? And how can she ever love a handsome but fiercely independent adventurer so opposite her own nature? When her assignment to capture the Cherokee language in writing puts her in unexpected danger, will John finally realize this isn’t the life Clarissa was designed for?

July 2018 Signing News!

Look for Denise's contemporary romance, Fall Flip, to debut with the Candlelight Romance imprint of Lighthouse Publishing of the Carolinas in September 2019.

The tragic death of Shelby Dodson’s husband—her partner in a successful Home Network house flipping business in the quaint river town of Augusta, Georgia—stole security, status, and career. Now, if Shelby doesn’t rally, her interior design competitors will edge her out of the market! When she agrees to redesign a 1920s bungalow for a charming retired couple, she’s forced to work with a new contractor—the polar opposite of her late husband.


Scott Matthews remembers high-and-mighty Shelby from high school, and her contemporary style chafes his down-to-earth grain. He has no intention of letting Shelby use him for her come-back. And Shelby can’t possibly develop feelings for a guy who challenges her in so many unfamiliar ways. When the house reveals a forty-year-old mystery, will its dark secrets—and Scott’s and Shelby’s own mistakes—cost a second chance at love?
