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?

MIKE'S WAGER - A Tide's Way short story
Is his hometown going to break his heart?
Mike Kennedy's college pals at Cambridge refuse to believe that his hometown, Tide's Way, North Carolina, is the good-hearted Mayberry Mike depicts. They bet him money that no one in Tide's Way will offer him a helping hand if he spends a week disguised as a grungy, dangerous-looking homeless guy. Mikes takes the bet.
So there he was, spending a chilly, rainy Spring break shivering and hungry under an old tarp draped over the railing of the bandstand on Tide's Way's small common. Three days had gone by without anyone offering him so much as a cup of coffee. He hated to lose the money he'd wagered but even worse, he hated that his hometown was apparently not what he'd thought it was. Would anyone prove that Tide's Way lived up to its ideals?
