If you’ve been searching for the best Christian romance novels, I wanted to share a few of my picks with you. As much as I love to read Christian romance books, I’m not a fan of some heroines. I prefer romance books with strong, independent women as heroines; sometimes, that’s difficult to find in the Christian genre.

A Broken Kind of Beautiful by Katie Ganshert
Fashion is a fickle industry, a frightening fact for twenty-four-year-old model Ivy Clark. Ten years in and she has learned a sacred truth that appearance is everything. Nobody cares about her broken past as long as she looks beautiful for the camera.

Not only did he walk away from the kind of success Ivy longs for to work maintenance at a local church, he treats her differently than any man.
