Thank you so much for signing up for my newsletter. I appreciate that you have a lot of books on your list and it's hard to wade through what you want to read. I very firmly believe that you should be able to TRY an author before you buy, so this is my gift to you.
The first two books are for the Lost and Found series. Forget Me Not is the first book in The Lowells of Honeywell, Texas series, a western spinoff from LNF, and the fourth book is the beginning of the Dogs or War series, a paranormal military spinoff.
I hope you find characters that you love and want to follow! (There are almost 25 books in the Lost and Found Series, so plenty to read later!)
The Embattled Road- Lost and Found Series Prequel
In the harrowing prequel to The Lost and Found Series, three embattled Marines must deal with their devastating physical and emotional injuries in a world that seems to have turned against them.
When the rescue helicopter crashes into his convoy in Iraq, Marine First Sergeant Duncan Wilde struggles with the loss of men, his career and the use of his body. Things can’t get much worse. Until his fiancée decides she has to move on with her life, and that of her unborn child by another man.
Sergeant Chad Lowell knew when he went to war that it would come with a price. And it did. A young Marine under his command is killed by a landmine. Chad’s left with one less leg and a mountain of recriminations. That doesn’t mean he wants to be a pitied by every female he comes in contact with.
Gunnery Sergeant John Palmer is furious at the hand he’s been dealt. He’s served his country faithfully, if not without antagonism, for many years. Now they’re turning him out like a relative who has overstayed his welcome. And, since he’s not even a real man anymore, maybe it is time to move on permanently.
Can these wounded warriors use a friendship borne out of adversity to form a partnership rescuing others? And can they find real love in spite of their challenges?
Embattled Hearts- Lost and Found Series Book 1
John Palmer hasn’t felt like a real man since he was injured during combat in Iraq. Though not content with his new life, he is mostly adapting, just like the other vets at the Lost ‘N’ Found Investigative Service. When Shannon Murphy is hired on as the new office manager, life suddenly gets a lot more interesting. Before long, John finds himself wondering if he could ever be the kind of man Shannon needs.
Shannon Murphy wasn’t really looking for love when she hired on at LNF, but finds herself hopelessly attracted to the sex-on-wheels former Marine, John Palmer. The man is grumpy and nearly impossible to work with, but his brand of masculinity appeals to her on a basic level. Soon Shannon is wondering just what it would take for John to want her the way she wants him.
When an old enemy tries to settle a vendetta against Shannon, John insists on protecting her. He moves into her house, fanning the spark of attraction into a blaze. But the danger continues to escalate. Will the connection that they’ve found survive when they’re thrust into a fight for their lives?
Forget Me Not- The Lowells of Honeywell, Texas, Book 1
Chad Lowell and Lora O’Neil are in love, engaged to be married and happy … aren’t they?
They’re in love, engaged and wildly over scheduled and over extended. There never seems to be enough time in the day for Lora to go to school, learn what she needs to run the corporation her daughter inherited, and take care of the two most important people in her world — her fiancé and her daughter. There are days when she’s not sure she’s eaten or not, much less what important things might have fallen through the cracks.
Chad’s madly in love with Lora and being as patient as he can while she navigates a new world of independence, financial security and being loved by a man she can trust. Seven-year-old Mercy is his daughter in every way that matters to him but he’s eager to make their family connection permanent and secure.
Into the chaos of their too busy lives comes a family emergency back in Texas. When Chad’s father is injured on the range, Chad, Lora and Mercy head for the Blue Star Ranch to pitch in with the spring round up. With the Lowell family gathering to care for each other and help on the ranch, Lora finds the direction she’s been missing. Her vicious ex stole years of her life. Now she has to catch up with the world, and refocus on those she cares for.
Chad and Lora fell in love on the Texas range. Maybe coming back is just what they need to find their way back together … and forward.
