I am honored to take part in this hop for various reasons! First and foremost I’m a firm believer in honoring our military men and women. They do so much for us that is never Thanked or even thought about. Those who long ago fought so that we might be free and those who fight today and all those in between. I was brought up to remember those who’d fought and those who’d died so that I might live free. My Grandfather fought in the Korean War, even though he was too young to fight at all. My Grandmother worked at a factory during the war, I have several great-uncles who fought in the military one in ‘Nam. My step-dad was in the Navy, and my father-in-law was in the Army. I have several cousins who have fought in various branches of the military. And 1 cousin, who was more like a father to me, who just recently retired from the Air Force. He’s fought in both Desert Storms and been stationed around the world, currently in Germany. I am so very proud of him and his service. He will never know how much of a hero I see him. And his family who has to deal with the stresses of military life daily.I pray daily for all our military men and women and the families and friends who love and miss them. They do so much for us, I hope they know that there are millions of us here at home, who remember them, and love them and will forever be thankful for all they do. It is with that in mind that I want to take a moment to mention the Wounded Warrior Project. This is a great project that I think we should all support. Check their website to see how you can offer your support. Thank you all those who service our great country!

First up is: BECAUSE OF YOU by Jessica Scott


Jessica Scott

A Coming Home Novel

November 14, 2011

Random House Loveswept


ISBN: 978-0-345-53386-9

From the war-torn streets of Baghdad to the bittersweet comforts of the home front, two wounded hearts navigate the battlefield of coming home from war in this explosive eBook original from newcomer Jessica Scott.


Keeping his men alive is all that matters to Sergeant First Class Shane Garrison. But meeting Jen St. James the night before his latest deployment makes Shane wonder if there’s more to life than war. He leaves for Iraq remembering a single kiss with a woman he’ll never see again—until a near fatal attack lands him back at home and in her care.


Jen has survived her own brush with death and endured its scars. And yet there’s a fire in Shane that makes Jen forget all about her past. He may be her patient, but when this warrior looks her in the eyes, she feels—for the first time in a long time—like a woman. Shane is too proud to ask for help, but for Jen, caring for him is more than a duty—it’s a need. And as Jen guides Shane through the fires of healing, she finds something she never expected—her deepest desire.

A hero’s nightmare…..
Gabe Renault doesn’t know why he was in a prison camp. He has no memory of the past three years or of the Navy SEAL mission that went wrong. Only two things kept him going, thoughts of his wife and the certainty that he must escape.

A sudden homecoming…..
After Gabe is presumed dead, Helen Renault pulls the tattered pieces of her and her daughter’s lives back together. Married young and for all the wrong reasons, she’s standing on her own two feet at last–and proud of it. Then comes the biggest shock of all–Gabe returns home. Gone is the distant, secretive husband he once was. This new Gabe is a man she could easily loose her heart to. But his memory is slowly returning, exposing a trail of government treachery…and jeopradizing his and Helen’s second chance at love.

Forget Me Not…..What you don’t remember can kill you.

*This is one of my favorite military romances of all time! This is for an ebook only copy!*

And next we have 1 ebook copy only of CODE OF HONOR by Catherine Mann

Special Operations

Catherine Mann

Date Published: 8/2005

Publisher: HQN

One Last Chance

Air Force captain Joe Greco had stood silently by when photojournalist Brigid Wheeler fell for his best friend, and he lent her comfort when Cooper was killed. Now he was forced to play protector as they embarked on the most dangerous mission in their lives.

One Last Chance

The cover operation was a chance for Brigid to avenge Cooper’s death, and nothing would stop her from following Joe into the jungle. Though the grief they shared had brought them close, they’d never crossed the line. Until now.

One Last Betrayal

In the heat of danger Joe and Brigid finally surrendered to the explosive passion that burned between them. Then they discovered a shattering truth: Cooper was alive…and the ultimate betrayal was still to come…

*Again this is an ebook only copy. And yes this is another favorite read of mine.*

*Now I’d orginally decided on giving 4 ebooks away but I couldn’t stop at 4 so we’ll also giveaway a ebook copy of Lindsay McKenna’s THE DEFENDER. This is a new release that comes November 13th, so it’ll be gifted as soon as I can. I LOVE McKenna’s writing.*

Book Description

Publication Date: November 13, 2012

After escaping her troubled past, all Katie Bergstrom wants is to put down roots on her raptor rehabilitation facility outside Jackson Hole. She doesn’t count on reconnecting with her estranged birth mother—or the recent appearance of a sexy ranch hand.

Former marine Joe Gannon is used to a life of risk. Working on the ranch, life is simpler…except for the undercover work he’s been asked to do. Getting too close to Katie could damage his current operation. Yet despite his orders to remain suspicious, he knows she’s innocent—and in danger. As he does everything he can to protect her, Katie can’t help but fall for him. But after a lifetime of betrayal, is this too-secretive, too-seductive rancher someone she can trust?

  1. Hello Wendy
    Should I win Because of you or Seal of my Dreams please regift them as I have them, don't have the others though. We just retired from the Navy after 24 years service and I know my husbands misses it. I miss it. He and his cousin Jessica and all the rest of my family still serving are my heros. Thank you for being willing to lay down your lives so that my children can live in a great country.

  2. Ahh Z what a great comment! Thank you for YOUR service, your husband's, and his cousin. You will never know just how much my family and I do appreciate all you and them do/did. And all those still fighting……… means more than words could ever say.


  3. First and foremost is my gratitude to our MILITARY and their families. My nephew just retired from the Air Force after 24 years of service. ….They are our heroes….

    I can also tell you I have read several of these awesome titles and what an awesome group of authors they are…..

    Thanks for sharing and have a SAFE and HAPPY VETERAN'S DAY!

  4. I love the theme of this hop, our armed services deserve so much more recognition than they get. What they do for us and sacrifice is huge.
    My older brother is in the Army, he has to leave his wife and three kids every year. The strength it takes to continue to do that is something I will never understand. But I am so thankful for.

  5. Perfect timing for this blog hop! Our armed forces need so much more respect and support than they are given. Esp, when they return home!

  6. it is hard to explain sometimes … I was born an Army Brat … my father served more than 20 in services and had been retire 30 years now. His 3 tours in Vietnam are not why … my first MIA bracelet is not why … having someone I knew come home in a flag draped coffin is not why.

    I was never fit enough to serve … even as a girl in the 80's I could have served had I been fit enough.

    Every day men and woman get up … leave their families … wearing a uniform that says I will defend you against any harm. They miss birthday parties, first steps, football game, and every holiday.

    They do this so we are free … free to speak our minds … free to wear our hair down to the bottom of our ass and free flowing and way to small thong on a public beach if we so desire.

    They keep us SAFE

    To those who serve … and to the families of those who made the ultimate sacrifice

    Some say … BRAVE…
    Some say … COURAGEOUS
    Some say … PATRIOTIC
    I say … THANK YOU

    Know that not just TODAY but everyday you are in my thoughts and prayers

  10. I am just so grateful for my dad who served in the Army for 20 plus years, I am a proud Army brat and will always be. I was fortunate to be able to see places that I probably would never if he hadn't been.


  11. What I love most is the true love and commitment required to be in the relationship — it's not easy but it's always worth it

  12. I have many family members involved in the military. My husband and I met in the military and he recently retired after 24 years of service. Thanks for the chance to win.

  16. I don't have any loved ones currently serving, but had a cousin in Desert Storm & my grandfathers on both sides of the family served in WWII. One of my mom's uncles made the ultimate sacrifice in Germany during WWII. Three of my uncles served, one in Japan, one in Belgium & one was a member of the white coats. I'm extremely proud of all the members of my family who have served in times of war & peace.
