From Me to You Friday- It’s My Birthday- Well Almost

Hi all! Yesterday was my birthday. Not a big one, that was last year. This year I am humbly 51. To quote a line from My Big Fat Greek Wedding “How you get so old?”

What did I do to celebrate? Not much. Last weekend my DH bought me The Longest Ride. I’d been wanting to see it since it was in theaters and regardless of what critics and others said, I loved it. I made Spinach/feta pasta and we had a family dinner. That was it.

My DD#2 had to leave for Memphis on my birthday for her new job. I’m sad to see her leave, but so happy for her to start her new career. She will be teaching art at the Memphis School of Excellence.

So, now onto the fun stuff! I have a wonderful present to share with y’all for my birthday! I am privileged to be part of a Military box set called No Heart Left Behind, and the cover reveal is here!

 No Heart Left Behind

Lydia Michaels- Why We Go
Sarah O’Neil has waited three long years for her husband’s return. With the end of the Civil War her circumstances are distressing and her trust in others beyond shaken. When a man she does not recognize at first glance approaches and knows her name, she is filled with fear. There would be only one reason for her brother in law to travel all this way. She is as she feared, a widow of war.
Jack O’Neil returns home to honor his brother’s dying wish, but the task is no chore as he’s always held a fondness for Sarah. As her sorrow threatens to consume her, he struggles to show her there is still joy to be found in living.

She’s fallen for him but is it safe to fall in love with a wounded veteran with PTSD?
Nash has found the girl of his dreams, but his wounds run deep. His ex-fiancé was repulsed by his eyes patch, and manufactured drama like bees do honey. However, real drama surround Betsy, when a stalker comes after her sister.
Betsy is torn. Will love and trust win out over her fear before it’s too late?
Sandy Sullivan- Love After All
Coming soon
Natasza Waters- SEALed with a Weekend
Blind dates suck, but a blind date weekend? In the forest! With a team of SEALs! Let the chase begin.
Vanessa Langara is the Chief Editor of Luna magazine. Pitching an idea for an article, her staff breaks new ground by inviting a team of Navy SEALS to participate in a blind date weekend. A call to N.A.B Coronado and a terse conversation with Lt. Seth McKnight, who makes it clear love is ridiculous, but agrees to the exercise, she prays the girls won’t be canoeing back from the San Diego high country in one day if they’re all like him.
Seth doesn’t believe in forever. With one divorce under his belt, women are the enemy. He wants to annihilate his best friend who tricks him into the weekend fling in the woods, but when he sets his eyes on Vanessa, there’s enough spark to start a forest fire.
