Sailor thought he was the man of her dreams.

In reality, Sailor Kern is a swimming instructor at her local YMCA in Birkenstock, Missouri. But in her dreams, she shares a life with famous romance writer Chandler Michaels. And now she’s about to meet him in person! And not only meet him, she gets to be his assistant the whole time he’s visiting Birkenstock.

But romance and reality don’t always mix, and Sailor is in for some big surprises. Chandler isn’t at all what she thought he would be, but the experience draws her closer to a God she’d nearly forgotten and friends who won’t leave her behind.

Will Sailor follow her dream man, or will she see the true hero God has placed before her, right in her own hometown?

About the author: MYRA JOHNSON has roots that go deep into Texas soil, but she’s proud to be a new Oklahoman. Myra and her husband have two married daughters and five grandchildren. Empty nesters now, they share their home with two loveable dogs and a snobby parakeet. Autumn Rains, Myra’s first novel for Heartsong Presents, won the 2005 RWA Golden Heart for Best Inspirational Romance Manuscript.

Question of the day:
Has there ever been a time when an unknown seemed so much better than what was right under your nose?


  1. For me, it was when I first met my husband. I had my eye on another guy--a bull rider, so I almost missed seeing the great qualities my husband had. As it turned out, I got the cream of the crop.

  2. This book sounds so good. I love the premise, especially that the anti-hero is a writer.

  3. Jeri--a bull rider??? Hopefully your husband is in a much SAFER profession!

    LOO, Erica! Writers are always troublemakers, aren't we?

  4. Love your heroine's name. Gonna reward myself and move this book to the top of my TBR pile.

  5. Wow, thanks, Carla! You're a sweetheart!
