The Love Inspired book series works with a set of six new reads being released each month. The books stay on the shelf for the month and then new books are released. I had the opportunity to review the current set of six books which are featured April 21- May 28 (and would make a perfect Mother's Day gift). Keep reading to find out how you can win the entire set of six books as well.
This set contains the following six books:
The Doctor's Second Chance by Missy Tippens-Jake West's troubled cousin leaves him with a most unusual parting gift—her newborn baby girl! And now the small-town contractor is forced to seek help from the very woman he resents—the new big-city pediatrician who practically stole his uncle's practice, Violet Crenshaw. Violet knows she shouldn't be consorting with the enemy. But she can't resist the adorable baby and her handsome new caretaker. Violet traded her chance at motherhood for her career years ago. But raising a family with Jake could be everything she's ever wanted.
The Rancher Takes a Bride by Brenda Minton-When Oregon Jeffries introduces rancher Duke Martin to the daughter he never knew he had, can they move beyond the mistakes of their pasts and possibly build a future together?
A Firefighter's Promise by Patricia Johns-When the baby he rescued seven years ago returns—with his widowed adoptive mom—Deputy Fire Chief Matt Bailey can't turn them away. Desperate to escape the reminders of his failure in the line of duty, Matt is close to leaving town. But one look at Rachel Carter and her son, Christopher, has him second-guessing his plans. Rachel is a mom in need of a hero for her son. But as much as she wants the two to bond, she's determined to keep her distance from Matt. After losing her husband on the job, she promised never to love another fireman. Yet somehow she finds herself drawn to the one man she should avoid.

Winning the Teacher's Heart by Jean C. Gordon-Single mom Becca Norton is surprised to discover her high school crush Jared Donnelly is back in town. The motocross champion hasn't been home in years, but the former bad boy is as gorgeous as she remembers. And his kindness toward her kids melts her heart. But when she learns his true purpose in town is to build a motocross school on land near her home, she has to put on the brakes. Her children's welfare is her priority, and her former in-laws have made it clear they don't approve of Jared or his plans. Soon Becca may have to choose between her heart…and her home.
The Single Dad Finds a Wife by Felicia Mason-Dr. Spring Darling wants a family of her own. But when she falls for single dad David Camden and his little boy, can she get past the architect's plan to ruin her historic family home?
The Love Inspired novels aren't deep reading, so don't look for something incredibly thought-provoking or deep here. They are clean and are interesting stories, so they make for light, easy reading and don't take lots of focus, making them good for sticking in your purse to pull out when you have to wait in a line or wait for a child you're picking up from an activity.
The characters in the stories are interesting, and there is usually a pretty good balance of action and character development. There are times when the events seem a little unrealistic, but, as I've said, they're just light, easy reads and don't have to be incredibly believable.
