Today I am bringing you author, Liza O'Connor, and she's here to tell us a little about Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, share information about her blog tour, and excite us with an excerpt from her latest release,
The Hardest Love
(A Long Road to Love, Book 5)
Please join me in welcoming Liza.
An estimated 7.8 percent of Americans will experience PTSD at some point in their lives, with women more than twice as likely as men to develop PTSD. About 3.6 percent of U.S. adults aged 18 to 54 (5.2 million people) have PTSD during the course of a given year. But given new experiments concerning memories, there is hope to resolve this.
A Long Road to Love Series
By Liza O’Connor
Sam has a new theory as to why his relationships with women never work. The problem is he’s constantly falling in love with women that he rescues from serious situations. He reasonably believes saving one from great harm should result not only in good sex afterwards, but never ending gratitude.
But it hasn’t been working out that way.
Sam’s conclusion: damsels in distress are incredibly ungrateful. So he decides the next woman he gets involved with will not require rescue. She will be strong and self-reliant.
Only problem: he’s never met a woman like that.
They do exist Sam. They really do. And just maybe, she’ll just rescue you instead.
“Well, if you want cheered up on my days off, I’d be glad to kick the hell out of your demons.”
Her comment brought Sam to a halt. No way would Mars share his history with his new staff. So who did? Carlos?
A second later, Aggie pulled up and returned to him. After an intense stare down, as if she were reading his mind, she ruffed up his hair, which had probably been pre-ruffled since he forgot to brush it before leaving. “I was offering to spar with you.”
That wasn’t happening. “Sorry, there are only a few people I can safely spar with. I would never risk hurting someone already debilitated with the name of Agnes.”
He couldn’t wait to see how she took his refusal. Inexplicably, he hit the floor hard a second later and her foot pressed on his neck.
“Easy!” he yelled. She gleamed with pride at her achievement, which had been nothing more than a lucky, underhanded blow.
When she removed her foot and reached down to help him up, he grabbed her hand, intending to flip her onto her back so she could appreciate how hard the floor was. Incredibly she managed to deflect his every move. Finally, by feigning a move which required her to respond by shifting her balance, he yanked her down onto his chest.
She laughed. “You are too good not to realize that was a bonehead move if I wanted to kill you. So, I’m thinking you’re tired of sparring and wish to try something else.”
Her gorgeous smile hovered inches above him. Her strong body pressed against his. Feeling a need to possess her, he gripped the back of her head and brought her lips to his as he rolled her over, so he was on top.
Just as his brain was about to overheat from one of the finest kisses he could recall, a familiar throat clearing doused his fire. He broke away and helped her up before facing Mars. “This was totally my doing. I knocked her off her feet and kissed her.”
After a stern glare at Sam, Mars turned to Aggie. “Are you all right?”
“I’m fine,” she said, all the while smiling.
“Do you want to press charges?”
She stared up at the ceiling, considering the matter. “I’m off duty today and tomorrow. Can we have Sam confined to my quarters?”

Once again, Ms. O’Connor has written a brilliant book about the complexities of relationships, good and bad. Again, to me, the book is the best break up book EVER and it left my heart singing in the end. Best.Book.Ever…
