Ua ola loko i ke aloha.
Love gives life within.

Jessica Scott personifies Aloha. From her bio (at this link),
Jessica Scott is a career army officer, mother of two daughters, three cats and three dogs, wife to a career NCO and wrangler of all things stuffed and fluffy. She is a terrible cook and even worse housekeeper, but she's a pretty good shot with her assigned weapon and someone liked some of the stuff she wrote. Somehow, her children are pretty well adjusted and her husband still loves her, despite burned water and a messy house.
Oprah has called her. True story.
Her debut novel BECAUSE OF YOU launched Loveswept, the first Random House digital imprint.
BECAUSE OF YOU featured Army wounded warrior Shane and breast cancer survivor Jen. Next came UNTIL THERE WAS YOU with "by the rules" Evan and "break the rules" Claire. For Valentine's Day, Jessica Scott returned to Shane and Jen with ANYTHING FOR YOU: A Coming Home Short Story. Borrowing from Paul Harvey, ANYTHING FOR YOU is "the rest of the story". It was a heartwarming short story that delivered the guts and glory of a romance that bloomed from tragedy:
Jen is a breast cancer survivor and with Shane, she’s found a man who loves her despite her scars. But her scars may be too much for their love to survive.
As their love grows, so does the risk to Jen’s life. And Shane must make the toughest decision any man can make to save the woman he loves.
