Book: Love’s True Calling

Authors: Lori DeJong

Genre: Contemporary Christian Romance

Release date: June 27, 2023

After years of jumping through other people’s hoops to be all they thought she should be, and enduring a tragedy no mother should, self-described “newbie” Christian, Harper Townsend, has finally found her true calling … and her true love. Until it appears that to follow one may mean leaving the other behind.


Adolescent Psychologist, Wyatt McCowan, is beyond delighted to have the-girl-that-got-away back in his life, and his heart. But even as they fall more in love, he realizes that being obedient to God’s calling on each of their lives may pull them apart. She rejected him once in favor of another, which left him hurt and angry. But this time, he can’t fault her for following hard after the God she loves with all her heart, even if it means leaving him once again.Will Ryan return to his faith and stay with her in Sweetheart or leave when the election ends?

She resides in Georgetown, Texas, with her husband and two fur-babies and is the mother of one grown daughter. Love’s True Calling is the 2022 winner of the ACFW Genesis Award for Romance.


Book Excerpt

He pulled an electronic tablet from his bag and leaned against the whiteboard spanning the front of the room. His brow furrowed much like she remembered from all those years ago as he scrolled through pages on the tablet.

How could this be happening? After all these years? That of all places, they’d end up in the same classroom at this small Christian university.


He gave the screen a tap. “Let’s take a quick roll so I can put names with faces. Anderson, Kathryn.”

A girl in the first row and four seats over raised her hand. “Kate.”

“Kate.” He grinned, then tapped on the screen. “Got it. Barrett, Cody.”

Harper’s pulse accelerated as he neared the T’s. Had he already seen her name on the roster before coming to class? Was he more prepared for this unexpected reunion than she was?

“Townsend.” He brought the device closer to his face, his jaw falling slack.

Nope. Clearly no time to prepare.

He looked up to scan the room, and when he found her, her breath caught. She didn’t know if it was contacts that made his eyes even more blue than she remembered or his aqua polo shirt with the Dallas Heritage University logo. But that azure gaze communicated with no doubt she was more shock than awe.
