The Royal Palm Literary Awards is a very demanding competition for authors, both published and unpublished. With three rounds of judging, a work moves on only by scoring above a certain threshold rather than just better than the competition. To make semi-finals is very satisfying. To make finalist is exciting. But to walk across the state to receive an award for having placed is very fulfilling. All those hours of writing, editing, research and sweat finally rewarded by three panels of judges from the professional world of judging including librarians, agents and editors.
WORRY STONE is book six in my Contemporary Romance series, The Camerons of Tide's Way. Two years ago, book 4 also took silver in this competition.
Is love enough to heal a soul-wounded Marine?
Sandy Marshall has been rescuing and healing injured creatures all her life, so it’s nothing new when she jumps to the defense of a Marine recently returned from a war zone who’s being heckled by a fellow student. But when she falls in love with Nathan Cameron, she discovers that bringing home a soul-wounded Marine just might break her heart.
Cam wasn’t planning on getting involved with anyone until he put the war firmly behind him and got his life back on track, but the hope and sunshine Sandy brings to his troubled heart is as unexpected as it is irresistible.
Will Sandy’s love be enough to bring Cam back from the edge of despair and convince him to get the help he so desperately needs? Is his love for her strong enough for him to pull his life together and be the man she believes in?
