'An exclusive collection featurig three women in different branches of the military fighting for their country and a chance for love.~~~~~~~Driven by commitment, these women venture far beyond the call of duty to make America proud amidst the turmoil facing our nation after September 11th.~~~~~~~Their courage and endless effort to love and honor will leave memories etched on our heart forever.'~~~~~~I found this anthology to be a great tribute to our service men and women, who dedicate their very lives for our nation and its people. 'Life Goes On' by Giselle Carmichael was a interesting read that touched on the changes that 9-11 brought about in our airline security. The tale was about Jaclyn a divorced mother of two teenage boys, who was in the army and was personally selected to help start an automated web-based personnel and recruitment system that would better track employees and could be used as a recruitment tool for hiring new employees. Tony, was the head of the program and he and Jaclyn had an instant attraction, although they both tried to fight it, especially Jaclyn. However, attraction wins out and after Jaclyn could have almost lost Tony to a terrorist she readily admits her love for him and the rest is happily ever after.~~~~~~'Treasured Dreams' by Wanda Y. Thomas, was a tear-jerker, more patriotic than romantic, it really brought back sad reminders of 9-11 and the characters had to deal with more tradgedies from the 9-11 fallout in this tale. Gregory was instantly attracted to Victoria. However, Victoria who was definitely attracted to Greg physically, was not so taken with him after he put his foot in his mouth with a comment regarding military women. Greg with the aid of Vicky's sister was determined to win her over and planned a series of romantic interludes, all while he was trying to take down several terrorist cells. Vicky tried to move slowly, but in the end she decided that life was to short and tomorrow was promised to them, so she finally, willingly submitted to her growing feelings for Greg.~~~~~~~Barbara Keaton's 'Wishing For Tomorrow', definitely my favorite of the three. She spun a sweet, romantic, yet patriotic tale of two service persons, who thought they would never find anyone to accept them because of their careers in the service, which were extremely dangerous and highly confidential. Yet, Michelle and Vincent, finally realize that they have a lot in common and they connected intellectually, mentally, emotionally and finally physically with each other. They finally accept that fate has thrown them back together and that 'love knows no bounds and no time frame.' They discover their love for each other, all while on assignment to take down a dangerous 'double agent' and return a loaded micro-chip with information that could have been dangerous for the US if placed in the wrong hands. This romantic anthology served as a reminder of what our servicemen have done and continue to do for us since the attack of 9-11 and what they have to sometimes sacrifice in order to carry out their duties. It was a sweet, moving and definitely patriotic read.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
