After getting out of the Army, Landon Bradley packs up his motorcycle and heads North West in hopes of closing up old battle wounds and maybe even settling down. Not accustomed to staying in one spot for too long, he's not certain that he'll ever find a place that he can truly call home. When he finds himself stranded in a small Wyoming town, Landon meets Maxine Abrams, more affectionately known as Max. Her blunt honesty and humble generosity make him feel closer to home then he ever has before. But when his feelings for her grow too strong, the reality that, like everyone else, he could easily lose her too, Landon feels the ever present urge to leave again. And Landon must decide which call to heed. His heart or the open road.

I have not yet read this book, but I have worked with this author on the screenplay based on this novel. I really enjoyed it!! She graciously gave me the books on ebook to review, so I'd love to get to them soon. Either way, I'd like to spread the word about her books. Check them out if you get a chance!! This one would make a great movie!

She's also a very talented photographer. Check out her White Willow Photography Facebook page for her photography to see her beautiful work. A lot of it is from her adorable son, so it's worth looking at either way. <3

Shawn Maravel was born in a small New Jersey town located between somewhere and nowhere. She fled the country looking for adventure while following her heart and the love of a soldier.

Shawn started writing when her husband joined the Army in 2008. It started out as a way for her to cope with the long periods of time that they spent apart but slowly took on a life of its own, becoming something she did for herself. Having always enjoyed writing and dabbled in it from time to time in previous years, the military lifestyle really provided her with the opportunity and an outlet to explore the passion further.

Volition is her first novel and was written during her husband's year-long deployment to Iraq. It is the first of a two book series, followed by Severance. She is also currently working on the screenplay for her novel The Wanderer.
