These are eighteen well written romantic short stories that pay homage to the dedicated Navy SEALs. Nick is “Coming Home” (by Jami Alden) to bury his beloved mom, as duty kept him away too frequently from her and Sarah who he will always love. Stephanie Bond returns readers to Sweetness, Georgia in ”Baby, I’m Back” as Barry the seaman comes home with a prosthetic lower leg and a desire for his physical therapist. SEAL “Panama Jack” (by Tara Janzen wants Little Miss Blondie the field operative he escorts in Panama. After his parents died, Shane the SEAL came home to be there for eight year old half-sister Shannon, but soon wants Teri to be there for both siblings. All the entries are exciting with none sinking; the contributions star surprisingly developed lead characters, especially the SEALs. In addition all proceeds will go to the Veterans Research Corporation not for profit raising funds for veterans' medical research.
