Many of you participated in my Title Brainstorm Game back in November, and what wonderful and creative ideas you had! To my surprise, my publisher, Revell, picked my working titles not only for Book 1 but for all three books in the series. And the new series title was not suggested by me or by anyone on the blog! I promised that if Revell picked your entry as the official series or book title, I’d enter you in a drawing for a free book.
But it made me sad not to give away another book. Plus, I’m celebrating turning in Book 1 to my editor! So I picked a name anyway – Paula MS! Paula, I’ll email you.
Now for the titles, starting with the series…
One fateful night drove three brothers apart.
One fateful day thrusts them together…D-Day.
The three-book series follows three estranged brothers in the events leading up to D-Day.
One fateful night of tragedy and betrayal drove the Paxton brothers apart. Now, as D-Day approaches, they battle the Nazis on the sea, in the air, and on the ground. Three women capture their hearts—a British naval officer striving for acceptance, a Red Cross volunteer searching for purpose, and a librarian longing for family. Will the battles they face lead them to redemption . . . or destruction?
The Sea Before Us (Book 1, coming spring 2018)
Betrayal as deep . . .
Love as mysterious . . .
As the sea before them.
In 1944, American naval officer Lt. Wyatt Paxton arrives in London to prepare for the Allied invasion of France, determined to redeem himself with the brothers he has betrayed. Dorothy Fairfax serves as a “Wren” in the Women’s Royal Naval Service, striving for the love of her bereaved father and of the man she’s always adored, Lawrence Eaton. When Wyatt and Dorothy work together on Allied plans for D-Day, he hopes Dorothy will return his growing love. But will family secrets, misplaced affections—and the seas off Normandy—separate them forever?
The Sky Above Us (Book 2, coming spring 2019)
Secrets as vast . . .
Love as unreachable . . .
As the sky above them.
The Land Beneath Us (Book 3, coming spring 2020)
A dream as dangerous . . .
A love as solid . . .
As the land beneath them.
