BUYING LOVE by Toni Shiloh

Toni Shiloh is a wife, mom, and Christian fiction
Toni Shiloh
writer. Once she understood the powerful saving grace thanks to the love of Christ, she was moved to honor her Savior. She writes to bring Him glory and to learn more about His goodness.

She spends her days hanging out with her husband and their two boys. She is a member of the American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW) and the local Virginia Chapter.

Welcome, Toni. If you could have dinner with one person from today or history (except Jesus) who would it be? Why?
I would have to choose Jane Austen. Her writing is iconic and has spanned generations of readers. I would love to know how many times she wrote Pride and Prejudice. Was it just one time, all of the words pouring out as she wrote, or did it take revision upon revision?

Please describe yourself with three words. 
Football loving Texan.

What is your favorite Bible verse?
“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; 7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7 NKJV

Will money ruin everything?

Nina Warrenton is ready for the next step in her life plan—marriage, but there is one problem. No one has proposed! Taking matters into her hand, she places an ad in the newspaper hoping to entice a willing stranger. But when she begins to fall for the small-town chef, she realizes how much she wants him to love her and not her money.

Dwight Williams needs fast cash to save the family restaurant. When he sees Nina’s monetary offer for a husband, he goes for it. He’s determined to save the legacy his dad left him, but can he let it go to prove his love for her?

Can Nina and Dwight find true love, once money has entered the equation?

  5. Bonnie Engstrom emailed me with some comments about Toni's book and I'm posting them here:
    "I just read Toni's Buying Love recently - one of the most fun, well written books I've read lately. I won't enter the contest because I've already read and devoured it. Whomever wins it will be blessed." Bonnie

  6. I feel I am often taking matters into my own hands, and then I know the matters will be taken care of. That happens at my work a lot...sonja dot nishimoto @ gmail dot com Merry Christmas Jo and Toni!!

    1. Sonja, thanks for coming by and leaving your comment. Merry Christmas to you!

  7. Taking matters into my own hands.....there's a fine line between getting things done and waiting/watching for God's time. I never was at peace when I did things my way. Still need to learn to wait for Him always.
