Just a Little Lie (Shades of Deception, Book 1)
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
Mariah Garnet didn't mean any harm when she sent her older sister's picture to Sgt. Sol Standish—her pen-pal stationed in the Middle East—and forgot to mention that at 18 she's on a fast track to becoming a surgeon like her dad.
Then Sol is badly wounded in combat, and there's no time to straighten things out before Mariah grants him his last wish—her hand in marriage—over the phone.
Sol didn't expect to live, or return home with a battered body and defeated spirit, to face a new bride who isn't at all what he'd expected.
Now Mariah must convince him that she's much more than the little lies that landed his ring on her finger.

Cute story! Hate the book cover and almost didn't read it because of it but I'm glad I did!
I was unsure of where this story was headed...but what a fabulous and thought provoking ride it turned out to be. The development of the characters and the flow of the story were are great...I will be reading it again
Deception and Truth
Honesty and trust, what marriage should be based upon. Throw in passion, love of country and two strangers. What a delightful story.
