To honor Veteran's Day, Secret Cravings Publishing is donating half the proceeds from the sale of this military romance anthology to OPERATION: GRATITUDE. 

I'm very lucky to be in the company of such talented authors. The story I wrote, Sweet Love Remembered, gripped my guts in a way few have. It's only 30 pages but it will move you to tears then to joy. Here's a snippet of Sweet Love Remembered:

“Get out of the car.”
“What’d I say?”
“Get out.” Perri shifted the car into drive.
“Look, Perri, the kid’s been gone for five years already. When are you gonna let go?” Ike closed the door but leaned on the open window, in no hurry to leave.
“Mike. The kid’s name was Mike,” Perri said as she peeled out, depressing the gas pedal almost to the floor. “Asshole.”
Perri slowed down when she crossed the George Washington Bridge into New Jersey. She forked right onto the Palisades Parkway, then leaned back against the rich leather seat of her BMW. The drive to Pine Grove was so familiar she could do it in her sleep.
You’d be five today, Mikey. If you had lived. It’s five years since we scattered your ashes in Cedar Lake.
June twenty-second, the day before Mikey’s birthday, was the day of Perri’s annual trip to Pine Grove. She took a shaky breath. SIDS took four-month-old Michael Jessup. The son of Perri and Sergeant Matthew Jessup…once her husband, now her ex.

A word from Operation: Gratitude 

I know it cannot be said enough but I want you all to know that you are greatly apprciated. I just want to thank each and every one of you who play a   part in this. This the best thing for our military who are deployed. Also those deployed Service Members who  don’t have family and don’t receive   packages, this puts a smile on their faces. This is something truly amazing for all and to know that we have so many people who support and care about what we do. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I know it cannot be said enough but I want you all to know that you are greatly apprciated. Thanks for always keeping us in your prayers and thoughts as you all are in ours as well. May GOD continue to bless you all. Once again a very BIG THANK YOU from all the   Service men and women who have received and will ,continue to receive packages   and love from home.
