Blog Tour ~ Dog Tags for Christmas Holiday Anthology

Three heartwarming military homecoming stories. 

Holiday Anthology
Lindsay McKenna, J.M. Madden 
& KaLyn Cooper
Released Oct 6th, 2016

Men and women in the armed forces are often away from
home, family and their beloved pets for the holidays. But this year, three
service members will be home for Christmas in heartwarming military homecoming
stories by New York Times Bestselling Authors Lindsay McKenna, KaLyn Cooper and
J.M. Madden.

Gift by Lindsay McKenna

Two veterans—one human, one canine—have returned to
Montana to recover from the traumas of war. Former Army Ranger Nick Conway
depended on his WMD dog Snowflake to help him navigate IEDs on the battlefield.
Now he needs his best friend to help him cope with his PTSD and acclimate to
civilian life. When he meets Holly McGuire and agrees to help her deliver meals
to the elderly, her inner light calls to him, but his demons hold him back from
giving in to his attraction. But Snowflake takes an immediate shine to the
kindhearted Holly—and he has never led Nick down the wrong path.  

Christmas Dream by J.M. Madden

When Veterinarian Willow James' office is broken into, it's natural that she
turn to her soul mate, former Navy SEAL K9 handler Joe Flynn, to track down the
culprits. The trail leads to a notorious Pit-Bull fighting ring. It may take a
Christmas miracle and a helpful nudge from an old partner to get everyone home

Noel's Puppy Power by KaLyn Cooper

Tanner Hill is better at communicating with animals than women. That might be
why he hasn’t had a second date in over two years. He’s also been extremely
busy with his kennel that has become the premier training facility,
specializing in supplying dogs to veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress
Disorder. Then again, there is this psychologist he can’t get out of his head,
or his heart.

Dr. Bailey Conrad would never allow the loss of half her right leg to an IED in
Iraq to stop her. Every day at the VA hospital, she sees patients who have lost
so much more to the war effort. It’s her goal in life to help as many vets as
possible to find a 'new normal', because she knows firsthand, it’s the internal
scars that can be the most difficult to heal. 

Excerpt from Noel's Puppy Power by KaLyn Cooper

Hoping Bailey wouldn’t be grossed out, or worse yet, faint, Tanner warned, “Chrys is having her puppies—”
“Oh my gosh,” Bailey interrupted. “Are they all okay? How many did she have? When did she have them? This is such great news for your breeding program. I’ll bet you’re excited.”
“Whoa.” Tanner stopped the rapid fire of questions. “Take a breath. She was having them when you drove in so I have to warn you, the tree skirt is ruined. Giving birth isn’t pretty.”
“Ahhh, she had them under the Christmas tree?” Bailey hurried her steps. “I want to see.”
She’d obviously missed his point. “It’s going to be messy in there.”
“In case you hadn’t noticed, I’m a woman.” She took a step and her boot slid an inch, but balanced herself and kept on moving. “I know all about messes.”

Oh, he’d noticed all right. He’d seen her curvaceous little body in spandex-hugging running gear as she practiced for the regional qualifications for the Paralympics last year. 


Lindsay McKenna lives
her life as a risk taker, and it shines through the books she loves to write:
romance, adventure and suspense. She started writing at age thirteen and
continues to hone her writing skills to this day. She sold her first romance
novel in 1981. The rest is history.

Because she went into the military, this experience became the backbone of her
writing—she is credited with writing the first military romance novel (Captive
of Fate, 1983, Silhouette Special Edition) and has created a thriving sub-genre
within the romance field! As a New York Times Best Selling author, she has sold
23 million books and in 32 foreign languages in her career thus far. Her many
experiences in the U.S. Navy are backdrop for her understanding of the military
in general, and also her very successful Morgan’s Mercenaries, which is an
ongoing series in Silhouette to this day! Forty-five books strong!

Lindsay has gone Indie in 2015 and has created a new family saga on par with
Morgan’s Mercenaries It is known as the DELOS SERIES. There will be paperback
and eBooks created under Blue Turtle Publishing, her company for her fans.
Readers who love Morgan and his family are bound to fall in love with the
Culver family. Delos is romantic suspense, which Lindsay is well known for. It
took her five years to create and bring DELOS to her readers. It was worth the
wait, but we’ll let you decide that.

Lindsay loves to hear from her readers and loves to know what they’d like to
see her write next. Stay up with the latest on the Delos Series here. Please

newsletter. It contains exclusive content found nowhere else on the Net. Plus,
giveaways and other surprises, to her loyal and faithful subscribers!

NY Times and USA Today Bestselling
author J.M. Madden writes compelling romances between ‘combat
modified’ military men and the women who love them. J.M. (the J stands for
Jennifer, not Jim as she’s been asked MANY times!) loves any and all good love
stories, most particularly her own. She has two beautiful children and a husband
who always keeps her on her toes.

J.M. was a Deputy Sheriff in Ohio for nine years, until hubby moved the clan to
Kentucky. When not chasing the family around, she’s at the computer, reading
and writing, perfecting her craft. She occasionally takes breaks to feed her
animal horde and is trying to control her office-supply addiction, but both
tasks are uphill battles. Happily, she is writing full-time and always has
several projects in the works. She also dearly loves to hear from readers!

KaLyn Cooper’s romances blend fact and fiction
with blazing heat and heart-pounding suspense.

Twenty-two years as a military wife has shown KaLyn the world, and thirty years
in PR taught her that fact can be stranger than fiction. She leaves it up to
the reader to separate truth from imagination.

She, her husband, and bird dog live in Eastern Tennessee on a micro-plantation
filled with gardens, cattle, and quail. When she’s not writing, she’s at the
shooting range or paddling on the river.
