New Adult Fiction

"New Adult" fiction means that the characters are new adults, faced with adult challenges and responsibilities and trying to discover how they fit into the adult world. New Adult fiction also has emotionally tense story lines and fast-paced, dramatic plotting. Many tiltes appeal to both the young-adult and adult audience. And all of my fiction will be clean and suitable for both audiences. Expect to see more titles from me in both the Adult and New Adult category.

Anyone But Him


A New Adult Mystery Romance


Caitlyn Summer had always followed the straight and narrow path. Her perfect husband would love Jesus more than her and love her because of her love for Jesus. He would be faithful and gentle and have a heart for others. So how did she end up marrying the bad boy who got her high school best friend pregnant then pressured her to abort?

Unable to remember the past three years or understand why she would’ve moved so far from home, Caitlyn can’t believe she willingly married such an overprotective, bossy, and jealous man. In this emotionally-charged, new adult mystery romance, ANYONE BUT HIM, Caitlyn struggles to solve the mysteries of her amnesia and her marriage. Suspicious circumstances surrounding her husband tempt her to leave and start life over, but they also challenge her Christian faith and convictions.  

The arrival of her first love, her husband's younger brother, intent on helping her regain her memory, offers a glimmer of hope. Together they uncover secrets involving her coworkers and the local abortion clinic, but nothing to explain why she married this man. Who changed – him or her?

"Anyone But Him had me hooked from the start! How did good girl Caitlyn Summers wake up next to bad boy ________? Theresa Linden unravels the mystery layer by layer as Caitlyn questions whom to trust, who has changed, and how an unfinished investigation may be the key to it all. Caitlyn’s quest for truth won’t be complete until everyone’s motives are brought to the light, including her own. Told through Caitlyn’s eyes, Anyone But Him will keep you doubting, guessing - and maybe even falling in love - alongside her." 

~Carolyn Astfalk, author of contemporary inspirational romances, including Stay With Me and Ornamental Graces


"In addition to the love story, which is incredibly clean and honors the Sacrament of Holy Matrimony, Anyone But Him is brimming with suspense and mystery."
