The Importance of Anniversaries by Jessica Scott + Giveaway

To celebrate my blogoversary I invited some of my favourite authors. But today's guest is doubly special because not only is she one of the nicest persons I know, but at the same time she is a gun-carrying serious army officer! So please give it up for the lovely Jessica Scott, who will tell you about the importance of anniversaries and present you with a terrific giveaway! ;-) 

So happy to be here celebrating Stella's blogoversary! Anniversaries are so important and as a soldier, I never realized how important they were until I started missing them.

My character Sergeant First Class Garrison knows full well how missing anniversaries can impact a marriage. My debut novel  opens with Shane receiving divorce papers but he's so focused in the war and preparing his soldiers for it, he barely blinks at the dissolution of his marriage. He recognizes that much of it is his fault and part of his reticence at getting involved with Jen involves how much of the blame he shoulders for the failure of his first marriage.

In , the follow up to , Shane is determined to make their first Valentine's day a special one. Jen doesn't understand the big deal but because Shane knows how badly he screwed up in the past, he's determined not make the same mistakes again.

Both books take a hard look at the life that soldiers lead and the impact of the war on those who love them. It's a reminder for me to make all anniversaries count when you have them, so today for Stella's anniversary, I'm giving away copies of all 4 of my books!

Jessica Scott is a career army officer, mother of two daughters, three cats and three dogs, wife to a career NCO and wrangler of all things stuffed and fluffy. She is a terrible cook and even worse housekeeper, but she's a pretty good shot with her assigned weapon and someone liked some of the stuff she wrote. Somehow, her children are pretty well adjusted and her husband still loves her, despite burned water and a messy house.

Oprah has called her. True story.

Her debut novel launched Loveswept, the first Random House digital imprint.

She's written for the New York Times At War Blog, PBS Point of View Regarding War, and IAVA. She deployed to Iraq in 2009 as part of OIF/New Dawn and is currently a company commander stationed at Fort Hood.

Most recently, she's been featured as one of Esquire Magazine's Americans of the Year for 2012.

Book #2.5 in the Coming Home series

From the author of Because of You comes an all new Coming Home short story.

Sergeant First Class Shane Garrison has spent a year recovering from his combat injuries. A year spent in the arms of the woman of his dreams. But loving Jen comes with a price: every time he touches her, he faces the uncertain fear that loving her might mean losing her forever.

Jen is a breast cancer survivor and with Shane, she’s found a man who loves her despite her scars. But her scars may be too much for their love to survive.

As their love grows, so does the risk to Jen’s life. And Shane must make the toughest decision any man can make to save the woman he loves.
