Christmas is a Time for Giving Blog Hop


CHARITY: Wounded Warriors
Blog HOP

Christmas is a time for giving.  Whether that gift is a hug, a present, a smile or letting those who are not home at this time of year knowing they are in our thoughts, it -- they, all boil down to a variation of a gift.

Every participating author in this blog hop has ...


PROMISED: to donate $30 to Wounded Warriors at the end of the hop.

(If anyone else feels inclined to add to the donation, that is their choice alone.
Here is the link: https://support.woundedwarriorproject.org/Default.aspx?tsid=66)

While I am a Brit and and it is many years since my brother was in the airforce, he is not the first family member in the services, my father was in the army and highly commended, as was my brother, for his actions. So I am only to happy to be a part of this Blog Hop. 
Thank you to everyone at Secret Cravings Publishing for their part in this Blog.

I am delighted that Secret Cravings Publishing started a Sweet Cravings Publishings genre, and am delighted that they accepted my sixth book, but first Regency story, No Job for a Woman, which is available at.
 


 
Although it has nothing to do with service life, my heroiine, Deborah Stavely, has to dig deep within herself, to fight off harrassment from her neighbours, and come to terms with her growing feelings for her brother's best friend.
 
Blurb:
Julian Fanshaw answers a call for help from his life-long friend Lord Worth to help keep his friend’s widowed sister, Deborah, safe from her increasingly vindictive neighbours. It doesn’t take long to realise him or Freddie long to realise the Grangers aren’t using her as a long-promised act of revenge against them; but are playing a deeper and far more sinister game of their own.
Deborah Stavely is determined to overcome the increasing harassment from her neighbour without calling on her brother for help. So she is not pleased when Freddie intervenes and involves his friend, Julian Fanshaw.
Circumstances demand Julian and Deborah learn to work together and Julian dares to dream that he might gain the love of the only person he’s ever given his heart to.
But will Deborah live long enough to discover that by releasing everything she values, she will gain everything her heart desires?
 
Excerpt:
Julian Fanshaw ignored the other letters in front of him when he recognized one from his long-time friend Freddie Dalrymple, now Lord Worth. He broke the seal and scanned the single sheet with growing concern.
 
Julian, my friend, I am writing to implore you to put aside whatever plans you have in hand and to set out immediately to stay with us for an indeterminate period of time.
 
Thoroughly alarmed, Julian flipped the page in his hand to discover it had been dispatched more than a week ago.
 
If I bring to mind a certain student up at Oxford with us, and reveal that he and his wife are, and have been, my sister’s neighbors for several years, it will give you but an inkling of the root of my concern.
 
It has come to my attention, due to the arrival of his brother upon the scene, and recent events concerning my sister, Deborah, I am persuaded you need not only to know what is happening here, but be on hand to assist in circumventing any consequences of actions taken against her.
I have taken the liberty of gathering some friends together for a couple of shooting parties, thereby creating a reason for your presence.
Since his return from the Peninsular, Julian kept promising himself a trip to Worth’s Norfolk estate. Unfortunately in the last eighteen months, time and circumstances had worked against him.
Casting the letter aside, Julian strode to the door and called for his butler.
“I am leaving immediately for Norfolk. Please see that my bags are packed and have my horse ready within the hour.”
“You do not intend to use your chaise, sir?”
“No. I’ll ride, with a stop to visit Mr. Sewel. Arrange for Becket and French to follow me in the chaise with everything I’ll need for a month.”
Not by so much as a flick of an eyelid did Thomas reveal he recognized the name of his master’s man of business.
“Very good, sir.”

I thank God for our men and women in each branch of our armed forces everyday. If it wasn't for those brave men and women we would not be free to be who we are. I come from a family of army men and my son is thinking of becoming an army man in a couple of years. I am so proud of him.
