Welcome to December's Wild Card Friday. On the fourth (and fifth) Fridays of every month I've invited one of my writer friends to share something fun and then tell you a bit about their work. This week Marion Ueckermann has a picture to caption and a cool prize for the winner. Take it away Marion...

Sharon, it’s great to be featured here on your Wild Card Friday. I think your readers will have fun with the ‘Caption This’ photo I’m sending in. This photo was taken when we visited the farm section of Ähtäri zoo during our time in Finland in 2012. I’ll be giving away an eBook of Helsinki Sunrise to the funniest caption.

OK guys, use the comment link below to caption away!

He needed the island to himself. So did she.

Three weeks alone at a friend’s summer cottage on a Finnish lake to fast and pray. That was Adam Carter's plan. But sometimes plans go awry.

On an impromptu trip to her family's secluded summer cottage, the last thing Eveliina Mikkola expected to find was a missionary from the other side of the world—in her sauna.

Determined to stay, Eveliina will do whatever it takes—from shortcrust pastry to shorts—to send the man of God packing. This island’s too small for them both.

Adam Carter, however, is not about to leave.

Will he be able to resist her temptations?

Can she withstand his prayers?

Helsinki Sunrise is available to purchase from Pelican Book Group,, Amazon, and Barnes & Noble.
