Subject: U.S. Marine Mace Harrison Current Status: On his last leave of absence Mission: A Secret Undercover Operation…as a Bogus Boyfriend! Obstacle: This business arrangement is turning a little too pleasurable… Mace Harrison is a decorated Marine. In his country's eyes, he's a hero. But in six months his last tour ends, and Mace's next step is unclear. Then he meets graphics designer and diner waitress Geneva Davis, and an immediate friendship turns into…well, a business deal. The terms? They feign a relationship to keep her ex-boyfriend off her back, and matchmaking pals off his. It's uncomplicated. It's convenient. And as far as Geneva is concerned, uniformed dudes are entirely resistible—or so she'd always thought. But Mace is wickedly, mouthwateringly hot. And now she's in a heap of trouble, because this soldier is very ready, willing and able to serve…to her complete satisfaction!

When her husband is offered the assignment of U.S. Naval attaché in London in 1939, Lydia Chapin Kirk packs up her family and embarks on a lifelong journey, one in which she becomes a first hand witness to the extraordinary world events of her time. Writing first from the vantage point of a young girl in Erie, Pennsylvania, Paris, and Washington before World War I, and then with her husband in his posts as U.S. Naval officer and as U.S. Ambassador to Belgium, Moscow, and Taiwan during the Cold War, Kirk's historical memoir offers a fascinating portrait of a remarkable life. She shares the unique challenges encountered as a diplomat's spouse and the complex social responsibilities she navigated with grace, from avoiding dubious food to facing the perils of looming war and enduring lengthy separations from her husband and children. An accomplished author of four books published in the 1950s and 1970s, Lydia Kirk captures the places and times in which she lived, the youthful adventures and wartime disruptions. With colorful prose and vivid detail, she offers recollections of such prominent people as President Theodore Roosevelt, Soviet Foreign Minister Gromyko, and Madame Chiang Kai-Shek. Kirk has an artist's eye for her surroundings, revealing candid perceptions of human nature. Here is the story of a woman of consequence living through a transitional time "when wives roles were different than they are now." Her memoir gives voice to the many strong women of her generation whose untold contributions will inspire readers of all backgrounds.

The purpose of this study, commissioned by the Army, was to document the process by which the Congressional Medal of Honor was awarded from December 7, 1941, through September 1, 1948; to identify units in which African Americans served; to identify by name all black soldiers whose names were submitted for the medal and to document any errors in the processing of their nominations; and to compile a list of all black soldiers who received the Distinguished Service Cross, the second highest award. Based on this work, in January 1997 President Clinton awarded seven African Americans the Medal of Honor. The authors were selected by Shaw University of Raleigh, North Carolina, to conduct this study under a United States Army contract.
