From the shores of Hawaii to the skies over Europe to the warriors supporting the effort back home, the greatest generation fought-and loved-like no other. Every day, every breath, every love, could be the last. Join four authors as they take you on a journey through the embattled, bitter, but ultimately hopeful love stories representing some of the bravest men and women the world has known. The Christmas Soldier by Lexi Ostrow Natalie knew that serving as a combat nurse would break her hearts in unimaginable ways. Serving in Northern Ireland shortly after America entered the war, all she can dream of is getting the injured home safely for Christmas. Pierce always assumed he wouldn't make it home from war - he just hadn't imagined enemy fire would have landed him in a medic camp. It took him moments to fall for his beautiful nurse and suddenly he wanted to return home, not the battle on the Atlantic. The holidays stop for no man and all the pair want is to see Pierce safe at Christmas. A String of Pearls by Linnea Alexis When Gloria Bernard fails to get Sam, her brother's best friend, to notice her, she strikes up a relationship with a handsome college student she meets at a dance club. Sam Knight may be Gloria's long-time friend, but he's also an undercover FBI agent. When Sam discovers that Gloria's suitor is a Nazi spy, he confronts her with the truth. At first, she refuses to believe Sam until being shown irrefutable proof. He asks for her help in bringing a case against the man she's dating. With assurances she won't be in any danger, she reluctantly agrees. Will Sam's plan backfire and put Gloria in harm's way? Can Gloria be effective, or will emotions derail building a case against her latest boyfriend? Can Sam and Gloria band together for a common cause-keeping America safe during WWII-while finally giving in to their mutual attraction? Until You Break My Heart by Heather Young-Nichols Hattie Maguire joins the Army after graduating from nursing school. Being shipped overseas was a given. To help save lives is why she joins. With a world war waging on so many fronts, nurses are in desperate need. Men are being killed or wounded every day and if Hattie can save even one, she knows it'll be worth it. Hattie meets Leo Scott just after Christmas 1944. Then they're brought together again on New Year's Eve. Possibly the best New Year's Eve either have ever had and in the middle of a war. They shouldn't be together. Hattie's been warned that fraternization is frowned upon, yet whenever Leo appears, she can't help herself, nor does she want to. A devastating attack tears the couple apart. If they can find a way back to each other, they can try to forget the war together. If not, their love will be another thing that haunts their nightmares. Moonlight & Shadows by Amelia Matthews Years have passed since young lawyer Susannah King last saw her first love, Devlin Morrow, but on a business trip to secure a contract for her father, the pair rekindle their passionate romance. But Dev is a changed man. War has scarred him, physically and emotionally. Susannah has scars as well, from a childhood devoid of affection and filled with expectations she's not sure she'll ever meet. Can the lovers step into the light and find ever-lasting love, or will they remain in the shadows, never to find happiness?
