I've had the Lost and Found series in my mind for several years now, but I've only recently started to write and release the books. I felt I was at a point in my career when I could do the stories justice. My heroes are not traditional, in that, they are all disabled. And they stay so through the end on the story.
In the prequel of the series, The Embattled Road (free at all outlets), you meet the three main heroes, catastrophically injured during the war and struggling to find a place in the world with their new reality. Book 1 of the series is Embattled Hearts. The hero in that book is wheelchair bound and angry at the world, but still struggles to find love.
I just released Embattled Minds, Book 2 of the series. This novella deals heavily with PTSD and Traumatic Brain Injury. Here's the blurb:
Zeke Foster has little to no experience with women over the past couple of years, after being injured in Afghanistan. Brutally scarred, he has no expectation that he’ll ever find a woman capable of accepting him the way he is. But he can’t help but be enamored of Ember, the waitress of a local watering hole.
Ember Norton’s life has turned into one devastating catastrophe after another. When the scarred soldier with the kind eyes brings some security to her life, she’s afraid to trust her luck. She’s been self-sufficient for a long time. But his wounded soul calls to her and she finds herself falling for him.
In spite of the secrets he continues to keep.

I enjoy writing all of my characters, but this one really tugged at my heart, because I know how our returning veterans suffer with these issues. And because of that, a portion of the proceeds from this book will go to a scholarship for a medical professional to learn to treat PTSD.
Be kind to a veteran and happy reading!
