The Wedding List (Love in Store Book 1)

Inspirational romance cover for The Wedding List by Autumn Macarthur, smiling couple lying in autumn leaves

You never forget your first love…

With her eye for design and her cut-glass accent, no-one would guess Beth Forrest’s impoverished background. It’s all throw pillows, china patterns, and upper class brides as she manages the Wedding Registry at Pettett & Mayfield, the stately maiden aunt of London department stores. It’s not quite her dream job, but each bride she helps to select beautiful and oh-so-expensive items for their gift list brings her one step closer to buying a little home of her own, and financing the education she longs for.

When physics professor James Tetherton-Hart, brilliant in his research lab but awkward and disorganised in everyday life, comes to the store in desperate need of both a gift and a partner for a wedding that evening and recognises her, all her careful plans and meticulous checklists are turned upside down.

Now her first love is back, determined to make her his partner for life, not just the evening. But unless Beth can let go of the mistaken beliefs that separated them in the past, and appreciate the depth and breadth of God’s love for us all, her only gift from the wedding will be another heartbreak.

Includes Halloween costumes, kissing, and a hint of gentle slapstick humour, as well as British spelling.

Believe in Me (Love in Store Book 2)

Cover image for London Christmas sweet inspirational romance Believe In Me by Autumn Macarthur

Bah, humbug!

All Cara Talbot wants for Christmas is for it to be over.

The workaholic accountant has good reason to hate Christmas, along with charmers like actor Nick Callaghan, playing celebrity Santa at the failing London department store she has the thankless job of managing.

She’s determined to save her staff’s jobs, Hollywood golden boy Nick just wants to live up to his Mr Unattached reputation and enjoy life. They couldn’t be more opposite. But if accepting Nick’s dare – dates showing her the magic of a London Christmas – can raise enough publicity to keep the store open, she’ll do it. Even if she risks falling in love with him in the process.

Can this surprising Santa allow love to deepen his untested faith and learn to commit, while helping Ms Scrooge believe in Christmas, and in God, once more?

Includes Santa costumes, kissing, and past heartbreak to overcome, as well as British spelling.

A Model Bride (Love in Store Book 3)

Cover image for London Christmas sweet inspirational romance A Model Bride by Autumn Macarthur
New Year, new love?

When Tiffany Gallagher flies to London from L.A to spend the holidays with her family, she hopes the media obsession with her actor brother will be enough to get her sketches to the hands of the right fashion designers. Volunteering at a homeless shelter on Christmas Day and getting nowhere with designers aren’t part of her plan. Nor is having to travel with Mac, the wounded and cynical Scottish photojournalist also volunteering at the shelter, to get the New Year’s Eve she’d dreamed of, an Edinburgh Hogmanay.

Determined to prove to her family and to herself that she’s good at something other than shopping, she sets up an ambitious back-to-work partnership between the shelter and Pettett & Mayfield’s department store. But her scheme means she and Mac are thrown together, as he’s working at the shelter while he recovers from a bomb blast. When he turns the camera on her to help her get a modelling job, she begins to see past his wounds.

Neither is looking for love, but love finds them anyway, though they know it can’t last when their plans are taking them in different directions. Can they learn in time that no matter what they’ve planned, God’s loving purpose for their lives can’t be denied?

Includes New Year’s Eve dancing, a little kissing, and a doubting cynical hero, as well as British spelling. Complete with British English Glossary.

Forget Paris (Love in Store Book 4)

Cover image for London Christmas sweet inspirational romance Forget Paris by Autumn Macarthur
American graduate student Zoe Gallagher doesn’t believe in romance.

She’s in Paris on Valentine’s Day doing research to prove that romance is an illusion and love doesn’t last. When she meets New Yorker Gabriel Rossigny, there to carry out his mother’s last wish by placing a lovelock on a bridge crossing the river Seine, how can she resist the most romantic city in the world on the most romantic day of the year?

One wonderful day proves nothing, she tells herself, only gives more evidence her theory is right. But on her return to London, Zoe discovers she needs Gabriel’s help to learn the biggest lesson of all, that love does last.

Especially God’s love…

Includes an anti-romance heroine, and quite a bit of kissing, as well as British spelling. Complete with British English Glossary.
