Feathers T.E.Hodden

Kerry only wanted to do right by Christopher. To protect him from the whispers of 'coward' and the shame of a white feather.

But the war doesn't look like a grand adventure any more. All Kerry wants is Chris home safe. But will he still be the same man she once knew?

A Manly ManJean Young

Confederate POW, Braxton Bolton, had an unexpected visitor the day before his execution, when Arabella Anderson walked into his jail cell and, in front of other POWs, kissed him until he shook with desire.

Two years prior, she had been the Lieutenant Colonel’s prisoner. While she was tortured and raped by the other Confederate soldiers, Bolton was different. He protected her from further suffering, and the grateful young woman had come to repay his kindness. While they became more and more intimate, she learned the story behind his kindness.

But what she learned turned the sweet girl into a fearsome warrior, one determined to save the soldier with a noble heart.

Goin' HomePhilip Lisagor

How will Jack be able to put Iraq behind him and return home to Leah and their two children? The green peaceful coast of Ireland is the perfect landing zone from the brown violent landscape of Mesopotamia. Jack is humping ruck along the North Atlantic coast when a chance encounter with an Irish maiden turns him all around and he hears the voice of Leah in a magical moment calling him home. 

The PromiseLondon Saint James

The year Veronica turned twenty-two changed her life. She graduated from San Diego State University, married the handsome Lieutenant Carter Weis—widowed six months after the happy nuptials.

Captain Quinn Alstrom of the U.S. Coast Guard was eager to start his newest post; however the excitement had nothing to do with the beautiful surroundings of Key West, and everything to do with his best friend’s wife.

Will Quinn’s surprise arrival in Veronica’s life re-spark the fire in the vivacious woman he remembered? Or, will the memory of her fallen husband stop the two of them from finding happiness?   

Promises KeptTerri Rochenski

Ever since they were kids, Joan dreamed of being Walt Herley’s wife. But, Joan's dream is short-lived when the Korean War draft has Walt trading his groom's suit for army fatigues. After a short celebration of their rushed nuptials, Walt is whisked away to fulfill his duty to his country, leaving Joan behind with a promise to return.

With her heart a world away, Joan struggles to keep her spirit afloat while praying for the war's expedient end.  Fate, however, has a plan of its own, one that threatens Joan’s faith in Walt’s promise to return.

HoV Author Interviews

What did you enjoy most about writing for this anthology?

London Saint James:
I’d been working on a Coast Guard themed story that I put on the back burner, and this anthology allowed me to pull it to the forefront and find a home for it.

T.E. Hodden:
The best bit is yet to come. When I get to read what the others came up with, and how they wove their stories from the same themes? That is by far the most rewarding part of the process, one I am looking forwards to right now.

S.L. Hughson:
I was thrilled to be able to tell the elaborate backstory I had created for the minor characters in “Dream Architect” (Accidental Valentine, February 2015) and check in with the main characters from that story.

Jean Young:
To be able to create a man who would do good deed, even in the face of evil. To be able to create a sweet and sexy heroine who would do everything to save such a noble man, even when he was on the enemy side.

Philip Lisagor:
The publisher has been helpful and very timely in response to me.

Terri Rochenski:
I adore historical romance and the research and immersing myself into whatever era I’m writing about.
