Becky Wade is a historical and contemporary romance author from the United States best known for the Bradford Sisters and the Porter Family series of novels. Her debut novel was the 2012 published freestanding novel “My Stubborn Heart”. She has always wanted to be a writer ever since she was young, and would frequently produce homemade plays that her cousins, friends, and sisters would star in. The plays would typically feature a prince, a heroine, and a happy ending to a love story. She would later attend Baylor University, where she met and married her husband, a Texan native. Becky and her husband travelled around quite a bit, spending three years living in the Caribbean and Australia, before coming back to the States to settle in Dallas, Texas.

Even as Becky was an avid reader and writer during her childhood, it was not until she was in the tranquil Caribbean that the urge to write came back to her. Coming back to the US, she would get a contract with Avon and publish three historical romances in quick succession. She put her professional writing career on hold for several years to become a mother, before returning to focus on contemporary Christian romances. A staunch Christian, Becky believes that God called her back to writing, and hence she decided to shift to writing inspirational contemporary romance. She has been relatively successful pursuing the Christian genre of fiction and could not be more thrilled with her work. Moreover, she just loves to write stories that are modern, funny and inspirational, aspects of which are found in her chosen genre. For her efforts, Becky has won the Inspirational Readers’ Choice Award, the INSPY Award, and the Carol Award for her award-winning series of novels and for the novel “My Stubborn Heart”. When she is not writing, Becky may be found trying to keep up with housework and failing terribly, eating chocolate, playing tennis, ferrying her kids around town, sweating at the gym, or lounging on the sofa watching the TV with the husband and kids.

The Porter family series of novels is Becky Wade’s most popular series. Each novel in the series introduces a protagonist from the Porter family. The protagonists include Jake, Lyndie, Celia, Ty, Meg, and Bo, who for the most part have some personal struggle or some individual strength that one can identify with. Given Becky’s Christian background the theme of vulnerability and belief and hope in God is very strong in the novels, particularly when things do not seem to be going right for the protagonists. Each novel in the series not only introduces a new protagonist and couple, but also continues with the telling of the story of previous characters. The novels generally have two overarching theme; the importance of trusting in God and how family can be a huge help for persons going through difficult situations.

Becky Wade describes her writing style as romantic, modern, humorous, and heartwarming. Her heroes such as Jake and Ty are for the most part hard and brooding men who, despite their tough exteriors have a soft and protective nature. They are real heroes or if not, they are strong men that are pursuing their mission in life. Jake is a former Marine that served in Iraq, Bo’s dream is to run the best thoroughbred farm in Texas, and Gray is a former NFL star. Her heroines such as Lyndie and Celia are brave outgoing, funny and most importantly drive the theme of hope and trust in God that Wade intends to pass across. Most of the novels have flashbacks to the childhood of the lead characters, which tends to provide more depth and understanding of their adult motivations. The novels argue that even as some situations or conditions such as Jake’s PTSD may seem to be impossible to overcome, love can lead someone to overcome. It is through love that a person can turn toward God, be healed and reconciled to family that they had either abandoned or been separated from by their conditions or attitudes. Nonetheless, Wade argues that only God can change broken people and that it is important to let people come to God at their own pace.

“Undeniably Yours”, the first novel of the Porter family series of novels is a novel full of humor, danger, authenticity and romantic tension. When Meg Cole’s father is deceased, he leaves her the sole heir to an oil empire. Even though the tender hearted and soft-spoken Meg loves art more than oil, she has no choice but to go back home to Whispering Creek Ranch in Texas to lead up her father’s business. Wishing to trim down the enterprise, her first order of business is shutting down the thoroughbred farm, which she does not have the sanity or patience to deal with. Bo Porter, the manager of the farm is tasked with shutting down his dream. While he knows that he should resent Meg who has taken away all that he cares for, he cannot help feeling a profound protectiveness for her as he spends more time with her. He is now living to overcome the obstacles keeping them apart such as her family’s outrage, his unworthiness, and her wealth by earning her love. But just when she begins to love him back, Meg’s hidden past rears its ugly head, threatening to tear apart their fragile bond. Can their belief in God and their love for each other survive the circumstances that life keeps throwing at them.

“Meant to be Mine” is a poignant, lighthearted, and fun novel in the Porter family series of novels. Celia Park had always found Ty Porter irresistible throughout their time in high school. After finishing college, their paths cross and this time the intense chemistry seems to be mutual. A whirlwind romance ends with a night at a Vegas wedding chapel where, they get married. Waking up the next morning Ty realizes that he does not want to be Celia’s husband, even as all she wants is to be his wife. As a professional bull rider, he knows it will be tough living with Celia given that he is on the road most of the time. Five years later, Celia is chugging along after giving up her dreams to look after the child born of the romance. Meanwhile, Ty had achieved all that he set out to – until he looks into the eyes of the child he had never met, and into the face of the woman he could never forget. How far is Ty willing to go to prove to Celia that he is no longer the selfish man who abandoned her and is now promising to love her for a lifetime?
