Kylie's Kiss by Delia Latham

On a dare, Kylie Matthews lands smack in the middle of Solomon's Gate-Castle Creek's new Christian dating agency-and she finds herself revealing exactly what she's waiting for in a relationship: "The kiss that steals my breath away."

What she doesn't reveal is her lack of self-esteem or her irrational reaction to facial disfigurement. Neither is applicable to her quest to find the perfect match. But that seemingly superficial malady becomes all-important when her first agency-arranged date is Rick Dale-a man who is everything Kylie is searching for. He's handsome, smart, fun. Rick has it all...including an angelic six-year-old daughter with severe scarring on one side of her face.

Hard at work founding a therapy camp for young female victims of deformity or disfigurement, Rick wants Kylie to be a part of those plans. She'd love to say yes...but how can she, when every contact with the facility's guests-and Rick's own daughter-will make her violently ill?

Kylie is ready to admit their relationship doesn't stand a chance, but she's forgotten that God makes a way where there seems no way.

Born and raised in a place called Weedpatch, Delia Latham moved from California to Oklahoma in 2008, making her a self-proclaimed California Okie.

Welcome, Delia! And "Happy Birthday" to Kylie's Kiss.

I have to tell you, Delia, that the blurb for Kylie's Kiss spoke to my heart on a personal level. At three years old, I was significantly burned and was the recipient of many stares and "what happened to you" innocent questions while growing up. I've already downloaded Kylie's Kiss and can't wait to settle back in my recliner with a box of tissues this weekend and enjoy watching you weave healing words into a powerful story of self-acceptance and grace.

Thanks, Delia, for stopping by. I've enjoyed getting to know you and all the other fabulous White Rose authors over the last few months. Love you, girl! Keep writing!

Dora, I only today found your comment. I didn't know you had been burned and dealt with the resulting scars and stares, etc. You've come through triumphant, my friend - you are one of the most positive people I've ever met, and I admire you so much. I hope Kylie's Kiss is a blessing to you!
