Dedication:

You call them deadly and terrifying monsters because of your fear. I call them beautiful, graceful and misunderstood creatures.
This book is dedicated to all sharks big and small, and all those who fight for their survival, which is in turn our own in the end.

Back Cover:

Marine biologist Dr. Lisbeth Drake finally gets her chance to shine in the scientific world when she receives a grant from world-renowned scientist Dr. Chase Logan. With her geeky new partner and the crew of the Pacifically You in tow, they head out on a six-month excursion to study Lizzy’s greatest passion … sharks.

But is it the marine life Chase came to study or is it Lizzy? When she baits him to divert their trip to an isolated island, he quickly obliges. Their mutual attraction pirates rationale and soon they are hooked on each other. But it’s their working relationship that goes off the charted course as submerged secrets surrounding her past float to the surface.

When the sunken treasures of truth are finally blown out of the water, will Chase jump ship or sail into the sunset with Lizzy?

Climb aboard the Pacifically You for a humorous sea tale of storms, secret passion, sharks and fish puns.

Blurb from back cover:

When does hiding the truth become an outright lie?

As an Army psychologist, Sydney Porter has heard her share of horror stories. The battle-scarred, down-trodden, and guilt-ridden have come to her office, seeking her help. When a highly decorated soldier is referred to her, she feels confident she can help heal his wounds. The chemistry between herself and Sergeant Aiden Thane is instantaneous. Sparks ignite and against her friend’s advice, she opens both her home and her heart.

Torn between a voice of reason and her undeniable feelings, Sydney begins to question just what is hiding behind her lover’s decorated uniform. What secrets are hidden behind his Purple Heart?

And does she really want to know?

Dedication:

This book is dedicated to every man and woman who has served as a soldier to defend freedom for all. You are heroes. It is also dedicated to the families of those soldiers who give up their fathers, mothers, husbands, wives, brothers, sisters and friends so that we can have those freedoms. Your sacrifices do not go unnoticed. Thank you all. 

Special dedication to the soldiers in my family, My father, John P. Choida, grandfather Stephen P. Gaida, brother-in-law in-Darren Dreher, my father-in-law Donald Gucker and my grand uncles who have served or continue to do so for our country.

I want to give a special shout out to Battling BARE for all their hard work to help soldiers and their families recover from PTSD! They have a special place in this book!

Read this amazing article written about my first novel The Cliff:

The Purple Heart in the News

Woman’s Novel Touches on PTSD and Soldier’s Return

After finding an audience with her debut novel,“The Cliff,” Hillsborough resident Christie A.C. Gucker is set for the publication of her second novel, “The Purple Heart.”

And while “The Cliff” is focused on a love triangle, Gucker takes on a tale about a soldier returning from war for “The Purple Heart.”

“This book is dedicated to every man and woman who has served as a soldier to defend freedom for all,” Gucker said. “You are heroes. It is also dedicated to the families of those soldiers who give up their fathers, mothers, husbands, wives, brothers, sisters and friends so that we can have those freedoms. Your sacrifices do not go unnoticed.”

She added a special dedication to the soldiers in her own family, including her father, John P. Choida, grandfather Stephen P. Gaida, father-in-law Donald Gucker, brother-in-law Darren Dreher, and grand uncles “who have served or continue to do so for our country.”

The book’s main character, Sydney Porter, is an Army psychologist who takes on the case of highly-decorated Sgt. Aiden Thane, a soldier who seems to have no past who is about to receive the Purple Heart. Gucker builds a love story around the two—but there’s plenty of mystery to keep readers drawn in.

The book is being published through Pagan Writers Press, and will be available in print and ebook via Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Smashwords and Manic Reader on Feb. 22. A giveaway being promoted through GoodReads offers a free signed copy of “The Purple Heart.”

Gucker has teamed with military organization BattlingBare to help spread the word about where families can get help with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

Gucker began her writing career after a 20-year career in the advertising industry as a degreed artist, sometimes sculpting in stone or taking photographs. She has also been a singer and musician, and can be found singing on a few CDs, but after the death of her father, she said she searched for something to fill her desire “to make a mark in this world.”

In addition to “The Cliff,” Gucker has also published two novellas, “Snapshot to Destiny” and “The Adventure of a Lifetime”  which have both reached Amazon’s Best Sellers lists multiple times.
