A few of the comments from the survey say:
I absolutely love inspirational fiction. Thank you all for your books... I seem to always find one that speaks to my needs.
Keep on creating and inspiring.
ALL of the titles sound fabulous! It was a tough decision. Thank you for writing such awesome books!
Anything about our Seals is a definite buy!
Sometimes it seems unfair to have to choose. All the books look interesting. But I picked the one that I would pick up first.
What a wonderful list of books! Great job, everyone!
The books all look very interesting and well worth checking out. It was very difficult making a choice and all 5 authors should be encouraged for doing a great job.
Liz Johnson is one of my favorite authors. I love how she develops her characters in such a way that I not only want to know what happens in the story but I am emotionally invested in the characters.
About the Book:
Navy SEAL Matt Waterstone knows about keeping people safe. When his best friend’s sister is attacked, Matt promises no harm will come to Ashley Sawyer–not on his watch. But Matt’s not the only protective one. Ashley will do anything to safeguard the residents of the battered women’s shelter she runs. She’s sure she can handle the threats she gets in return. What she can’t handle is the way Matt scales the walls around her heart. Yet when she falls prey to a crime web more sinister than she’d realized, trusting Matt could be the only way to survive.
