Announcing Wittenberg Encounter, the first book in the Intriguing Love series

The purpose of this blog is to promote and explain the five books that are planned in the Intriguing Love series. The first book, Wittenberg Encounter, was published on 4/24/2016 by Dennis Kananen (see cover below) in two formats on Kindle. 

I have studied the Jewish background of Jesus for over 25 years. As a writer, an artist, and a former Lutheran, I wrote Wittenberg Encounter as a way to explore some of the things I have learned using an exciting story with endearing characters who lived during the explosive times of the Reformation in Medieval Europe.

3. Krakow Union (In progress)
4. German Upheaval,
5. Zurich Refuge.

Here is a review from a recent reader:

I had a hard time putting down this book. Historical fiction is such a pleasant way to learn history and this year being the 500th anniversary of Luther's posting on the door in Wittenberg made me want to understand this era better. The intrigue and romance made it fun and captivating. But my favorite aspect was how Dennis wove in the Jewish culture and helped me appreciate the trials of Jewish people in this era. Plus, it was educational for those unfamiliar with a variety of Jewish practices. I am very eager to read the next book.
