This is a very emotional story about sacrifice and loyalty – about overcoming the wounds of battle and finding a life to live and a love to share it with.
Staff Sgt. Shane Logan is lucky to have come from a privileged family, and after losing both of his legs in the war, he now has the best prosthetics that money can buy. While he is trying to move forward with life, he struggles with the past and the way people react to him and his disability.
Dr. Lauren Falcone works tirelessly to help veterans deal with the trauma and pain of their deployments. Her unique virtual approach to therapy keeps her busy, and the assistance she provides to service members as they recover mentally helps her resolve her own anxieties.
When Shane meets Lauren at a fundraiser for his father’s organization, he wonders if there just might be a chance for him to get his dream off the ground and maybe find a normal life with someone who can look past his flaws and see the man he is inside.
Shane and Lauren are drawn to each other by their hope to make life easier for veterans, both physically and emotionally. Their goal is to build Shane’s dream organization, Rise Again Warrior, which will assist veterans to integrate more easily into society and have the opportunity to receive state-of-the-art technology and therapy.
Now, if they can only have faith in themselves, learn to deal with their own demons, and believe in each other, they might find a way to bring this dream to fruition.

Because I love this book and want everyone to hear it!
How did you choose the reader for the book and the production company?
Ryan Clark is an active duty Air Force service member. His voice was perfect for my character Shane, and because of his knowledge of the military, he was able to put the emotion into the story that was needed.
