Memorial Day

On my grandfather's headstone it says that he fought in three wars. Now I will say that most of his time in the field was actually in a ship. He was the head of the galley and fed thousands of men on that ship and also supplied other ships as they went by. He would make donuts for the higher ups on other ships and send poems along with them, silly poems (I come by my gift honestly it appears :)). And he kept those poems and the ones that sometimes the grateful higher ups would send back as a thank you. Someday I would love to publish that book if for no other reason than it deserves to be out there, to humanize and ground the soldiers who are out there giving of their time, their expertise and sometimes their very lives to make sure that you and I can live in this great country and have our freedom too.

Happy Memorial Day! If you see a soldier and can manage it, don't just say thank you, take their hand, the one that might have had to hold a gun and shake it with your heart in your eyes.

Fabulous Series by my friend Victoria Allen!

Combine a magic sapphire, a witch and a stubborn hero and you get
double trouble.

As a healer, Selena welcomes all to her home. Then two strangers show
up on her doorstep, one badly injured, but it is the other who draws
her notice. Did her mother's last act of enchanting a beautiful
sapphire bring this handsome man of her desires to her?

Tristan had been against the journey with his godfather, Jacob, but a
promise is a promise. An attack by outlaws sealed his fate. Injured
and on the run, they come upon a secluded cabin and a beautiful woman.
When she displays powers unlike any he's ever seen, he is certain he’s
been bewitched. Yet for some reason, he doesn’t mind as much as he
thought he would.

When treachery uses Selena's compassionate nature against her, can the
two heartmates overcome vast odds to fulfill the future promised to
them by the Stone of Destiny?
