"Of course it is escape fiction, but it's very good escape fiction..." - FIVE STAR Amazon Reader Review


As the director of the Port Provident Animal Shelter, Becca Collins had devoted her life to helping the furriest residents of Port Provident. When a special Labrador retriever, Polly, needs her help on the eve of Hurricane Hope, Becca can't say no--even if it means she'll have to ride out the hurricane on Provident Island. When she shows up on the doorstep of local veterinarian Dr. Ross Reeder, Becca throws a wrench into Ross' plans to evacuate himself and his combat-weary former Army dog, Cookie.

Ross and Becca are used to disagreeing with one another, but they soon realize the only way they're going to survive the wrath of Hurricane Hope is to put their differences aside and work for the good of the animals who depend totally on them. As they discover they have more in common than they thought, they work to rebuild the Texas beach town where they've both put down roots. But then Becca learns secrets about her past that threaten to change the whole direction of her life.

As she struggles with love, faith, and lies, will she still need the shelter she's found in Ross' arms or will the aftermath of the storm take away everything they've worked to build?


Port Provident is a Texas beachside community you'll want to call home again and again. With compelling, well-developed characters that make you care about them and their journeys of the heart and faith, the Port Provident series is a clean and sweet contemporary romance treat. Although the Port Provident: Hurricane Hope books can be read in order as an anthology, each book stands alone--you can read any book at any time. Should you want to read them in order, though, start with Shelter from the Storm, then The Doctor's Unexpected Family, then His Texas Princess, and complete the series with Holiday of Hope. You can also find more tales of true love and a legacy of grace in Saving Gracie and Second Chance Sweethearts, both from Love Inspired books.

The next series of Port Provident books--Port Provident: Holiday Hearts--begins with a release in Spring 2016. Become an honorary resident of Port Provident by clicking the yellow "follow" button on Kristen's Amazon author page in order to be notified of new releases and more!
