Marliss Melton is the author of two very disparate genres—medieval historical romance and military romantic suspense. Yet she creates in both a common theme: Men of Valor, Women of Strength. Daughter of a U.S. foreign officer, Marliss grew up in various countries overseas. Exposure to different languages led her to teach high school English, Spanish, and—her favorite subject—History of the English Language which she taught at the College of William and Mary, her alma mater. Marrying into the military, Marliss Melton’s love of British history existed side-by-side with her appreciation for the selfless sacrifices of the military community. With many contacts in the military and Intelligence communities, she was well-equipped to write realistic romantic suspense featuring U.S. Navy SEALs and agency heroes. Marliss resides in Williamsburg, Virginia with her husband and their youngest daughter. Be sure to “friend” her on Facebook! Visit www.marlissmelton.com for more information.

Master Chief Rusty Kuzinsky has thrown his heart and his savings into preparing a warrior's retreat. Never Forget is a special place for SEALs to find solace and to heal after grueling operations like those he endured his entire career. Just as his first guests are due to arrive, a military war dog suffering from PTSD lands in Rusty's lap, requiring attention he simply can't spare.
NCIS Special Agent Maya Schultz has her hands full raising a teenage son while investigating crimes taking place within the military. When Rusty offers her son a summer job caring for his new dog, practical Maya can't tell what's more dangerous--the crazy dog or her attraction to a man who witnessed her husband's death ten years ago...and claims to see him, still.
But when danger threatens Maya's remaining family, Rusty's special gift and his unhinged dog become her only defense against a suspect who'll do anything to avoid going to prison. With time running out and life or death at stake, Maya has to choose whether to follow her head as she has always done or to trust her heart this time.

Definitely have to get this in paper form. Very sad to have it end..
I was so impressed with the strength of the characters. Sorry to have the book end.
Never Forget is part of the Echo Platoon series and is another great read by Marliss Melton. The story centers around Rusty, retired from the military, and Maya, a widowed mom of a teenage boy named Curtis. I really enjoyed watching the relationship develop between all three characters including a retired military dog named Draco. This military romance has everything you need to make a great book-strong, relatable characters, sexy military guy, hero dog, conflict/danger to overcome, and a happy ending. While this book is part of a series, the author does a great job giving background information so that it can be read as a stand-alone book without the feeling you are missing something. If you haven’t read anything by Marliss Melton, you don’t know what you are missing. Pick up this book for a fun, quick read! You won’t regret it.
