While You Wait by Julie Arduini

With 2022 underway and 2021 in the rear view mirror, finally I feel like life is moving forward. Our son was offered a full-time teaching position at the very school he graduated from. One of the accounts I’ve been working on since my mom passed found a resolution regarding money she was due that pleases all parties involved.

And…I’m writing.

If you’ve read Christians Read for awhile, you know Surrendering Hearts is a six-book series I’ve wanted to publish for years. The idea for this contemporary romance series started when I watched the early seasons of This is Us and wondered how could one track a big family? Then, I chatted ideas with my sister who wondered if I could ever write about donor families. Although I’m not there yet, I landed on a family.


Each sextuplet gets their own book and opportunity to discover their identity apart from their siblings. More than that, they long to find a love much like what their parents had. Before the chaos of 2020, I had Book 1, Anchored Hearts, started. There’s a prologue that sets the whole series up. Anchored Hearts is Jordyn’s story and God willing, you’ll see it this spring.

It’s important to me not to take readers for granted and I realize the wait has been loooong. With that in mind, I wrote a short story that first appeared in my newsletter. Unwrapping Hearts is the origin story of patriarch Paul Hart and how he found romance with the woman next door. By the time Anchored Hearts begins, Paul’s enjoying marriage after years of widowhood.

I’d love to share these free reads with you.

  • Unwrapping Hearts is a free contemporary romance short story that prequels Anchored Hearts.

It would mean a lot if you follow me across social media and reading sites so you stay in the loop.

Happy Reading!
