Cocked & Loaded Blog Hop & #Giveaway

Join me today for the Cocked & Loaded blog hop & giveaway being run by the fabulous Ronda Queen Tutt! I had the pleasure of meeting Ronda at a conference and she rocks! Plus, God Bless her and her family for their service to our country.

Just leave a message of support for our soldiers on this blog for a chance to win a copy of NOCTURNAL WHISPERS and AMAZON AWAKENING.

Also, please remember that I will be be donating a portion of my royalties from THE CLAIMED to HOPE FOR THE WARRIORS. Please take a moment to visit the SOS ALOHA Blog and share this information with others! Here is a little bit more about this project.

In THE LOST, I remembered them by having the heroine, Bobbie Carrera, be a wounded Marine veteran. I also dedicated the book to our military women, men and families.

For THE CLAIMED, I knew I had to do something more. Because of that desire to do more, a portion of my royalties for sales of my paranormal romance THE CLAIMED will be donated to HOPE FOR THE WARRIORS, an organization that seeks to enhance the quality of life for U.S. service members and their families who have been adversely affected by injuries or death in the line of duty. Also, if you’re one of the first fifty (50) to e-mail me with a proof of purchase of THE CLAIMED or proof of a donation to HOPE FOR THE WARRIORS, I’ll send you either a HOPE FOR THE WARRIORS pin or tote bag along with other swag.

  1. We spent the 4th together as a family, I have 8 kids so lets say it was LOUD! O ;pve s[emdomg the entire day just hanging out with the entire family. We always have a huge BBQ! Love the salads, BLT is my favorite!

  3. My dad was in the military before I was even born, but he never talked about his time in it. I just hope that all the men and woman in the service are keeping well and safe. I know it can’t be easy for them!

  4. Our men and women in uniform deserve our love, respect and we should honor what they do and how much they sacrifice for us!
    I keep them in my prayers!

  5. They and their families sacrifice so much, just hope our govt would be willing to do more for them in and out of battlefield.

  6. When I think of freedom, I think of my brother and the sacrifices he made to keep our country safe. His wife lost her brother and he lost his best friend. Freedom is the ability to read what we want and not have someone dictate what and how we do it. It is the ability to write what we want to and be able to create worlds that capture the essence of our souls and not be imprisoned by a small mind’s idea of what is right or wrong.

    Thank you for being in the hop. I would be honored to win one of your books.

    Freedom is a joy and a privilege.

  9. My son served Our Country and I pray daily for all our service men and women who are out there to give all of us our freedom..remember freedom is not FREE. I give cards at Christmas time to our local Vet’s Hospital to give them to patient’s who served our Country and has no one to think of’s a small thing to me but I know they look forward to getting one card to let them know some one cares.

  16. Being from a family of soldiers I’m always in love with showing my support and reading books that deal with the super sexy heroes in uniform. Thanks for sharing the giveaway!


  17. I am thankful to those who are serving as well as those who have in the past. I am also thankful to their families.


  18. They represent safety and the freedom to live the American lifestyle and they do it voluntarily so I feel gratitude, I support their families when I live near one and I give to military and veteran charities.

    Thanks for participating in the hop and for the giveaway opportunity.

  19. I have uncles, brothers, cousins and nephews who have all served in the military covering most of the branches. There are 2 Marines, 1 Army, and 5 Navy men in my family. It was a hoot at family gatherings to hear them tell their funny military stories and trying to one up each other. I thank God every day that they all come home safe and sound. God Bless our men and women in uniform!
