I'm getting so excited about my next release! Building Family is ready to go and I'm getting impatient for it to release. I'm really proud of the book. It's actually Two love stories and several suspense threads going on at the same time. So there's so much more story there than I could shove into the three-paragraph blurb. I thought I'd post another excerpt to show that off.
After nine years of marriage to a Navy SEAL Zoe Yazzie knows about sacrifice. Because of numerous periods of separation from her husband she’s put her dream of having another child on the back burner. But now her biological clock is ticking and she needs Hawk’s cooperation.
Lieutenant Commander Adam “Hawk” Yazzie is stunned when his wife springs the idea of having a baby on him. Their son will soon be ten and Hawk believes their baby days are over. He’s faced with a dilemma, if he says no and crushes Zoe’s dream, will it cause long term harm to their marriage?
When Zoe is injured in a terrible car accident, the decision is put on hold while they wait for her to wake up. Hawk is faced with the possibility that his wife might not survive. But when she finally opens her eyes, he’s dealt an unthinkable blow. Zoe doesn’t remember him or their life together.
Lieutenant Sam Harding and Moira McKee his girlfriend are getting married. This is the second love story in the book and Sam's SEAL team plays a part in his life, his bachelor party, and several other areas. This is a meeting between Sam and his brothers about the bachelor party.
A short excerpt:

When she discovers that she may have a stalker, the only person she knows to confide in is Ozzie's best friend, Zig. When Zig and the team rush to the rescue, she finds that accepting their aid and continued friendship isn't as hard as she'd imagined.

One night of tearful remembrances ends with her waking up to discover that she wants more from Zig than just his protection. Whether this is love or simply need is something she'll have to figure out before they both get hurt.
