“I seldom get caught up in a manuscript that I’m editing. After all, I didn’t read it to be entertained; I edited it to identify problems in need of correction. It’s an entirely different mindset. Even still, I couldn’t help but get attached to Dan and Sam, and I honestly didn’t want the story to end; it was that good. You have something truly special here.” Michael Garrett (Top-rated editor according to Preditors and Editors).
A modern-day MASH, “Thank Sophia for Sam” is the story of a medevac crew based in Jalalabad, Afghanistan. They are responsible for medical evacuation support for the most dangerous areas of the country, including the dreaded Korengal Valley. The mountainous terrain is perilous, the weather often making it more treacherous, and the likelihood that their red crosses will attract bullets and missiles is high. Yet, none of that stops them in their zeal to save lives, not only of soldiers, but of civilians and even enemy fighters. The story is fictional, but includes many rescues based on actual missions as reported by various media outlets.
Flight crew antics – some also based on true accounts of medevac units – and a love story serve to develop the characters and story between missions. The four-person crews work in close quarters with a great deal at stake and become very close. The two central characters are Samantha Hawkins, the co-pilot, and Daniel Beaton, the flight medic. He aggressively pursues her throughout his posting in country. The heartache that flight medics have to endure in this war is almost beyond belief; for Daniel, Samantha represents a crucial escape, counterbalancing the pervasive pain, death and horror with love, life and hope for the future. She, however, is forbidden to have a relationship with him because he is an enlisted man, and she falls in love with a flight surgeon. Daniel fights for her heart, mostly with a searing wit, but it is a losing battle.
To compound his problems, he develops diabetes during his second summer in Jalalabad, which, if the army finds out about it, will ruin his plans for the future. Added to Samantha’s consistent rejections and the enormous stress of the job, this overwhelms the young man. He suffers a breakdown and is sent home.
Once home with the war and the army behind them, they both have trouble adjusting to normal life, which is dull and frivolous by comparison. There the tables are turned, with Samantha pursuing Daniel, but Daniel wary of her. She needs him to help her settle back into normal life; he too needs her, but is afraid to trust her after a year and a half of rejection in Afghanistan.
Is there any hope they will end up together?
(Please note that because the story is largely set in the army during war, it has violence, vulgar language and sexual innuendo.)

After several decades of looking for true love and never finding it, aging model and lingerie designer, Alexa Ranger, has finally given up the search. A couple years ago, she got tired of the game completely and just stopped dating. Now friends and family keep her mostly content, so it’s shocking at 50 yrs old to find herself suddenly wanting a sex life again. It’s even more shocking to be attracted to a much younger man this time. She definitely thinks medically retired Marine, Casey Carter is sexy, but can’t get passed their twelve year age difference to even consider a fling. Not that it matters anyway, anything resembling a normal dating relationship is totally out of the question because Casey is related to and living with her daughter’s boyfriend. The very last thing Alexa needs is yet another talk-show worthy drama in her already complicated life, no matter how amazing Casey’s kisses make her feel.
This is a great character study in romance and the first of the series. I can’t wait to read them all. I definitely recommend this author and her books to anyone who loves a good romance and likes to laugh. And keep an eye out for more from this wonderful lady. ~ Jesse V.

“THAT…is creepy as hell” Reno muttered as he stared up at the huge old house. “That thing is ancient! Who keeps these around? Shouldn’t they be torn down to prevent freaky ghost possession?”
Katsumi smiled as she stepped up beside him, sipping from a cup of coffee. “Most people don’t know ‘freaky ghost possession’ exists, Reno, you know that. Besides, not EVERY old house is haunted.”
“No, just the ones WE visit.”
WHAT DETERMINES THE VALUE OF A SECRET?
In 2068, the natural progression of the business world has come to its inevitable conclusion: the world has been privatized, from governments to security to militaries. The benefits of this are great, with the dissolution of national borders and the rapid advancement of cybernetics – but the true downside of giving total control to corporations has yet to be seen.
Secrets, however, are the way of things, and there are things in the world that are kept secret for a reason…
Katsumi Samakura, an experienced and cybernetically-enhanced soldier, deals with these secrets on a daily basis as the leader of SIN Unit 1, a task force based in Tokyo that handles the most violent terrorist, paranormal and supernatural threats.
Most days, the only thing that keeps her sane is her relationship with her sister, Ayane, whom she will protect at all costs. But there are worse ghosts than the incorporeal entities she usually deals with and a dangerous situation with a man who uses humans as living bombs gets worse when the one man Katsumi and Ayane hate most – their father – reappears in sadistic pursuit of an unknown goal.
Things become even more perilous as a shadowy genius, known as Sigma, sets into motion a plan centered around a fallen angel that may lead to the end of all life – if the sisters can survive their father, the demons and a mysterious illness long enough to even see it…
