Ellie's Wounded Heroes - Soon! In the meantime...

Hey everyone! Hope you're amped and ready for my newest series, Wounded Warriors.  The first edition, Ellie's Wounded Heroes, is scheduled to be released on April 18!  I think it will be on pre-order soon, hopefully next week.

Just in case anyone needs a little more information, I have an alternate description for Ellie's Wounded Heroes! Just for fun, I'll include both.

The original:

Rex is a disabled veteran who ended up with part of his leg amputated after a roadside bombing. He also had a severe head injury and suffers from extreme short term memory loss that leaves him waking up to a new day every day. His friend, Clark suffers from PTSD and bouts of dark depression that are nearly debilitating at times. Neither man feels that they have anything to offer a woman but while Rex has abstained form dating, Clark tends to date them on a short term basis.
When Rex meets Ellie, he’s instantly attracted to the pretty social worker and asks her to go out with him. At the last minute, his nerves overwhelm him and he asks Clark to join them for moral support. To his surprise they hit it off as well.
In the meantime, Clark asks Rex for help finding a safe place for a family in an abusive home. Rex offers one of his rental houses and they enlist Ellie’s help to convince the mother to leave.
The move doesn’t go as they had planned and when Rex’s injured leg fails him, it’s Clark who steps in to save Ellie and in turn is stabbed in the chest. Ellie learns the extent of Rex’s war injuries as well as the dark depression that Clark suffers as a result of his service while they help Clark recover from the attack.

Rex realizes that individually, neither of them would be able to keep Ellie happy and safe, but together, they could have the family they all want. He sets out to convince Clark then together they convince Ellie to give them a chance. She’s unsure if such a relationship can work, but knows that she loves them both too much to walk away from one of them much less both and agrees to be their wife.

The Alternate:

When the heroes feel more like zeroes, it's time to bring in reinforcements. Enter Ellie, a social worker with a passion for fixing others. Or at least finding ways to ease the troubles of others. When she meets Rex, he looks like a typical bad boy, motorcycle and all. She has no idea that her passion for helping others is about to change Rex's life forever.
Rex, a disabled veteran with extreme short term memory loss, lives his life by leaving himself notes. His friend and fellow veteran Clark helps him as much as he can, but his own PTSD and deep depression sometimes does more damage than good. When Rex gets a date with a sexy social worker, Clark is super supportive of his friend that hasn't had a date in years. Going along with him wasn't in the plan, but he'd do anything to boost Rex's morale.
On the date, everyone has confused emotions. It would seem that Ellie enjoys the company of both men, and it doesn't help that they're both sexy as hell. Clark mirrors Ellie's thoughts, but he would never get in the way of Rex's chance at happiness. Can the three of them realize that it will take all of them to make it work?

  1. I love the alternate description . I think it sums up the book better. I do like the orginal because it tells more but the alternate sums it up differently in a way that i liked :-)
