Every man desires to be a hero for the woman he loves; however, very few are presented the opportunity. Col. James P. Gordon is one of those men. Early on, the younger Air Force captain, Jim Gordon, met and fell in love with Samantha Marissen, the woman who brought him to Jesus Christ and the daughter of Edward Marissen, CEO of Marissen AeroSpace. After more than twenty years, the now retired Air Force pilot is thrust into such a position as personal and world events collide, crossing the paths of the lost loves once again. Recently divorced from an emotionally and physically abusive man, Samantha Marissen fled the country as a means of escape and relief from the horrors of the legal destruction of her character but is arrested in an unstable foreign land and charged as a spy in an unwarranted retaliatory act against the United States. She is held captive for trial far from her estranged family with only the protection of a sympathetic soldier and her love of God. James Gordon, a man with no family, yet still strong in his faith, lays his life on the line to bring Samantha home. Her time of captivity and his period of training prove their love still strong as both overcome serious obstacles to remain alive. Unknown to Samantha is the love and concern of friends she thought long-forgotten who pray for her safe return with James Gordon.

About the Author

Craig is a Christian author who loves the Lord, demonstrated through his family and his church. He was born and raised in the local area that provides him the perspective to write about simple, consistent values. Having grown up in a close neighborhood has allowed him to create the rich feel of the characters that make up life and show up in his books.
During his career, he progressed from a worker, to a manager, to a mechanical engineer, then back to an everyday worker with a true-life viewpoint. He departed the workweek world several years back and cautiously pursued writing, a long-time desire.
His experiences taught him to understand our journey through life. He knows what it is like to try and live life on our own terms and the places that can lead us. As a believer in Jesus Christ, he knows the path to live righteously and how difficult that path can be without the love and support we need to continue the journey.
Craig is married and resides in St. Louis County, Missouri, and is blessed with two sons, three daughters, and an ever-growing number of grandchildren. He teaches Sunday school and an adult Bible study while occasionally assisting the youth pastor. Fun and adventurous are two words to describe him as he heads up his church’s annual float trip each summer. He also enjoys donut holes, which requires daily time on his exercise bike.
