About the Book
Title: Enduring Love
Author: Toni Shiloh
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 28, 2018
Belle Peterson is hiding a secret. Seeking sanctuary in the small town of Maple Run, she’s intent on starting her life over—one she hopes honors Christ. The plan was going great until an undeniable attraction to Micah has her wondering if she’s changed at all.
Micah Campbell can’t understand why Belle is so uptight and wants nothing to do with her until the gentle whispers of God tell him to befriend her. He didn’t count on the feeling of protectiveness to rise up or that spark of attraction.
Can love really conquer all or will Belle’s past be too much for Micah to handle?

I have a confession to make. I want to move to Maple Run. Toni Shiloh paints a picture of the cutest town, with people who care about each other and look out for each other. And yes, it may also have something to do with the fantastic food I drool over every time I read one of these books! I was so happy to be back visiting the characters I have grown to love – especially Delaney. I just love her! But these two “newish” characters (we’ve met Micah before) brought this series to another level for me. They made me want to sprint to Maple Run as fast as I could without looking back. Please, Toni Shiloh I beg of you – keep this series going forever (okay, I know that is probably not feasible, so you can counter that by telling me to just reread all the books).
I think Micah and Belle’s story might be my new favorite – sorry Delaney! There was so much emotion throughout this book. The fear of the past coming back to haunt you. The fear of the unknown future and feelings that are developing. The fear of letting the One who created you down. The fear of opening your heart again. Belle had so much going on inside that brain of hers, and at times I sympathized with her, and other times I wanted to shake her! Probably because my impatient self was just ready for her to forget the past and move on already. But thankfully, Toni Shiloh stuck to her guns and Belle progressed in her own timing, which was beautifully done by the way. In addition, Toni has gracefully added the gospel throughout the story in a way that really speaks to your heart. In truth, I find this in all her stories which is another reason why I love them so much.
And then there’s Micah. His love and concern for Belle was such a delight to read. He wasn’t in a hurry, well outwardly anyway. Instead of pressuring her into a relationship, he became her friend. She needed to know that he was there for her, that she could count on him, and that he wasn’t just trying to get a relationship out of the deal. To see them grow closer, blossom, and really develop a beautiful relationship was both mesmerizing and inspiring. I cannot wait until the next time we can visit Maple Run again!
I received a complimentary copy of this book. I was not required to write a favorable review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Guest Post from Toni Shiloh
Hey there, Reader Friends!
I’m so excited for the kickoff of Enduring Love. This is book 3 in the Maple Run series and features the story of Belle Peterson and Micah Campbell. You may remember meeting Micah in book 2 of the series, he is Luke Robinson’s best friend. I tell you, this book has a special place in my heart, one that brought out all the emotions in me.
Belle Peterson is living a life filled with shame and regret. She knows mentally that she’s been forgiven, but can’t reconcile the fact to how a redeemed life should look. And when Micah Campbell walks in her life, she’s certain that she has to stay as far from him as possible to keep from back sliding.
Y’all know our wants rarely meet with reality. I had fun throwing Belle and Micah together in Maple Run. Sometimes to their chagrin but always to my pleasure. J Characters from Buying Love (book 1) and Finding Love (book 2) will make an appearance, rounding out the family that has been created in my fictional town of Maple Run, Virginia.
As you take the time to read Belle and Micah’s story, I pray you keep this verse in your mind. “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.” – Romans 8:1 KJV
God does not want us to live a life of shame and guilt. Once we ask for forgiveness, He gives it to us freely. Walk in an abundant life, my friends, and bless others with the grace you so freely received.
Blessings to you,
