Promotional Post + GIVEAWAY! "Starting from Scratch" by Stacy Gail

Message from Stacy Gail, Author of Starting from Scratch:

Thanks so much to Ly for putting a spotlight on my latest release, STARTING FROM SCRATCH!  This novella is one half of Carina Press’s “Military Homecoming” holiday duology, GIFTS OF HONOR (and in case you’re interested, the magnificent Rebecca Crowley’s HERO’SHOMECOMING makes up the other half—yayyyy! ^_^ ) .
(By the way, since my latest project deals with families who have someone in the military, I thought I’d mention that the wonderful book-loving lady who runs this blog is a military wife.  Did you know that?  This makes her a heroine in my book, so extra hugs to you, Ly, and thank you for all that you give. Military wives might not get the parades or the medals they deserve, but you’ll always have my admiration and everlasting gratitude. {{{HUGS}}})

Now THAT made my heart smile. THANK YOU, Stacy!


Christmas is the perfect time to start from scratch

Lieutenant Sully Jax saved his unit during an IED attack, but he couldn't save his marriage. He can't even remember it. Recovered from his injuries, he's come home to the family and friends he knows—and an ex-wife who's a stranger to him.

Lucy Crabtree was heartbroken last Christmas when Sully announced his plan to go on one last tour of duty, and devastated when he asked for a divorce after he awoke in the hospital with no memory of her. She's finally moving on from her hurt and from losing the man she loved more than anything, and her cookie-baking business is taking off just in time for the holidays. But now Sully's back, and she can't deny she still loves him. But how can she trust her heart to someone who breaks it every time she sees him?

Sully might not remember Lucy, but something inside won't let her go. With every bite of her cookies, he finds a new love for Lucy, and he soon realizes he wants to rebuild his life… with her by his side.

 About Stacy Gail 
A competitive figure skater from the age of eight, Stacy Gail began writing stories in between events to pass the time. By the age of fourteen, she told her parents she was either going to be a figure skating coach who was also a published romance writer, or a romance writer who was also a skating pro. Now with a day job of playing on the ice with her students, and writing everything from steampunk to cyberpunk, contemporary to paranormal at night, both dreams have come true.

Hero's Homecoming


Six months ago, being snowed in at Christmas with the amazing woman he met on R & R at Fort Riley would have been a dream come true, yet now, as a blizzard swirls outside Beth Tate's house, Captain Chris Walker knows he shouldn't be there. Blinded in combat and emotionally scarred, he never wanted Beth to know the man he's become—but stranded by the storm, he had no one else to call.

Hurt and bewildered when Chris abruptly ended his faithful contact from Afghanistan, Beth tried to put him and their whirlwind romance out of her mind and prepared for a quiet holiday alone—until the phone rang. Now that he's here, she's more confused than ever, torn between love for the man she once knew and anger at the one who broke her heart.

A life with Beth was everything Chris wanted, but the wounds of battle are nothing compared to the agony of heartbreak. It will take more than mistletoe, but perhaps this holiday season Chris will find his way home.
