|Meant To Be - a romantic military|
fiction novel by author Jessica James
Set in Ocean City, Md., and then moving to the treacherous terrain of Afghanistan, the novel tells the tale of two people who meet by chance on the beach only to find their lives intertwined in a way neither one could have imagined.
From the back cover:
It started as a chance encounter on the beach, and ended 24 hours later when they parted to go their separate ways.
Or so they thought.
Actually it was just the beginning.
From the sundrenched beaches of Ocean City, Md., to the snowcapped mountains of Afghanistan, this thrilling tale of espionage and intrigue takes readers on a spellbinding journey into the secret lives of our nation’s quiet heroes—and answers the question:
do you do when the person you most want to protect
is the one risking everything to make sure you survive?
This will be James' first contemporary novel -- but she is a veteran at writing poignant love stories that take place during turbulent times.
Noble Cause (originally titled Shades of Gray) and Above and Beyond, were both set during the American Civil War. Both novels won the coveted John Esten Cooke Award for Southern Fiction, and were Finalists in the USA Best Books Awards contest.
Meant To Be will be available at bookstores everywhere and as an e-book in all formats.
