Robert Macomber's Honor series of naval fiction follows the life and career of Peter Wake in the U.S. Navy during the tumultuous years from 1863 to 1901. At the Edge of Honor is the first in the series and winner of the Patrick D. Smith Literary Award as Best Historical Novel of Florida. The year is 1863. The Civil War is leaving its bloody trail across the nation as Peter Wake, born and bred in the snowy North, joins the U.S. Navy as a volunteer officer and arrives in steamy Florida for duty with the East Gulf Blockading Squadron. The idealistic Peter Wake has handled boats before, but he's new to the politics and illicit liaisons that war creates among men. Assigned to the Rosalie, a tiny, armed sloop, Captain Wake commands a group of seasoned seamen on a series of voyages to seek and arrest Confederate blockade-runners and sympathizers, from Florida's coastal waters through to near the remote out-islands of the Bahamas. Wake risks his reputation when he falls in love with Linda Donahue, whose father is a Confederate zealot, and steals away to spend precious hours with her at her Key West home. Their love is tested as Wake learns he must make the ugly decisions of war even in a beautiful, tropical paradise—decisions that take him up to the edge of honor.

A man on the brink of destiny... It is the height of the Vietnam War and young Lt. Brian Holcomb is about to embark on an eight-month tour of duty that will bring him one step away from commanding his own ship. A woman tempted by desire... On the homefront, his beautiful wife Maddy is lonely and confused-tantalized by a seductive stranger and an act of betrayal every Navy man dreads, even more than an enemy's face. A ship at war with itself... Aboard the guided-missile frigate USS John Bell Hood, he will witness a ship spinning in a tidal pool of recklessness-its crew wasted by drugs, its brass losing its grip on command. The Edge of Honor And now, as the Hood steams towards an explosive showdown with North Vietnam's killer MiGs, he will be forced to make the most agonizing choice of his life-one that could make his career...or damn his soul. With his stunning new thriller, The Edge of Honor, P.T. Deutermann unfurls at full display the mastery he hinted at so brilliantly with his debut Scorpion in the Sea.

Book 1 details the exploits of a small group of GIs as they face the pressures and demands of fighting a changing/disappearing enemy. They are plagued with dwindling support, disaffection of the American public, confused/double-talking politicians, and power struggles within the entire governmental effort. The novel surveillance and tunnel exploration methods introduced in this book set the tone for additional books and illustrate how common sense can often triumph. Book 2 takes our team to the next level by adding long-term sniper training for ultimately all bases with novel surveillance techniques and equipment (definitely a must-read). The additional thrills of POW rescues in very contested encounters. Book 3 introduces the final strategy to try to conquer the Vietnam peninsula and its people. The construction of new bases six miles apart the length of the DMZ is defended. The tense, destructive Tet Offensive occurs, and my men are immersed in the conflicts and aftermath. The book finalizes, summarizes, and covers the last successful POW rescues deep in the interior. The ultimate effect is a losing strategy and leaving our allies in enemy hands. It results in millions dying in Vietnam and Cambodia, renaming the capital, and the killing fields of Cambodia under Pol Pot. This book is dedicated to their memories. Read on! Edge III Book III in the Vietnam Trilogy takes you through the remaining years of the Police Action. I honestly would not acknowledge peace/withdrawal with honor every occurred! The corrupt politicians, press, and yes heads of the military betrayed our boys, POW’s, and Vietnamese people. My last book III touches on the craziness while going through “Tet” and the last official POW rescues my men pulled off.

What will it cost to keep a promise? Of the four people at the Newpointe post office when the bomb went off, three were killed instantly. The fourth, a five-year-old boy, lies comatose in the hospital and might not survive. Who would do such a thing? The answer comes in the form of a gunman crashing through the door of the hotel room where Jill Clark is staying. With a rifle barrel pointed at her temple, the young attorney suddenly finds herself the hostage of a desperate man whose actions hardly fit his claim that he’s innocent of the bombing. Only later, when the suspect is behind bars, does Jill wonder whether he’s as guilty as he appears. Prompted by a terrifying attempt on her life, Jill and old flame Dan Nichols dig deeper into the case. But standing in their way lies an obstacle Jill hasn’t counted on: the power of a covenant. It could change her life. Or, with the clock ticking, it could seal her death. Word of Honor is book three in the Newpointe 911 series by award-winning novelist Terri Blackstock. Newpointe 911 offers taut, superbly crafted novels of faith, fear, and close-knit small-town relationships, seasoned with romance and tempered by insights into the nature of relationships, redemption, and the human heart.

I can’t stand Tatum from the second she walks into the room. Everything about her puts me on edge—from her small delicate curves to the smile that she refuses to lose. There’s nothing she loves more than to piss me off. She’s infused herself in every part of my life, taking away the silence I crave. I’d walk away if I could. If I hadn’t been shot. If I didn’t need physical therapy. If I could resist her. I only kiss her to shut her up. I didn’t expect it to turn into the hottest moment of my life with our clothes scattered on the floor. The one-time thing turns into something neither of us expects. When my guard drops and secrets are revealed, I’ll do anything to protect Tate. We have enemies lurking around every corner. Will my vow of honor cost me the one thing I can’t live without?
