Men in Love is a special show — it’s all about love, marriage, romance, and faith all from a male perspective. Dr. Mike Spaulding of Soaring Eagle Radio guest hosts this edition of the Parker J Cole show.
This week, we celebrated Valentine’s Day. A holiday usually steeped in romance, from chocolate hearts, red roses, intimate dinners, and togetherness. However, in celebrating this holiday, marriages are broken, divorce rates skyrockets, and professions of love are only skin deep. For some people, they mean absolutely nothing, empty words for empty hearts.
As an author, I have access to authors from all over. I wanted to hear words of love and what love means from a male perspective. There’s a lot of misandry out there so I wanted to talk to men who used words effectively to show what love meant to them. Several men answered the call and their thoughts are for you to enjoy. Yet, I didn’t want to just say words. We NEED a biblical context for love, romance, marriage, and faith.
So, I reached out to Dr. Mike Spaulding of Soaring Eagle Radio. I’ve been a follower of his show, his blog, and have had the honor of having him talk to us about Men in Love and what it truly means. His concise and poignant commentary is one that I hope will encourage and uplift you. Listen in at 929-477-1965. Or, click on the link here: http://tobtr.com/s/11202903.
Pairing prospective lady Pinkerton detectives with rough and ready agents? What could possibly go wrong?
Head of the Denver Pinkerton office, Archie Gordon, has been tasked with hiring female agents.
The problem? They need to be trained by existing agents while solving cases. Alone and unchaperoned. In 1871.
The solution? Have each pair marry temporarily, for the duration of the case. If Archie can convince his reluctant agents and the even more reluctant women to agree, that is.
One thing is certain, it won’t be dull. And the couples might even find love on the road to adventure. If they don’t kill each other first.

“I started reading The Cure around 2 am. I thought I would just read a chapter to see what the book was about and then go to sleep. Well… I finished the book at 5:15 am. I could not put it down. The story is a bit like a fairy tale but so much more. We see jealousy, pain, heartache, stubbornness and love! When all is said and done love wins out. This story has a Job like feel to it. When you read it you will understand. I encourage anyone that enjoys Christian fiction with a dose of multiple cultures and the war between love and hate to read this book. You won’t be sorry! I will definitely read more from this author.” — Amazon reviewer
