Camouflage Christmas

DeeDee Lake, the Connection Expert, launches 7-book romance series to highlight the realities of the military lifestyle and love.

FAITH NEWS SERVICE – ST. JOSPEH, MO (Sept. 22, 2022) CrossRiver Media Group announces its biggest project to date, a 7-book military romance series that highlights to the patriot in all of us the realities of the military lifestyle and love. The series is co-authored by DeeDee Lake and Susan M. Baganz.

The Rules of Engagement Military Romance books will begin their release November 1 with a Christmas novella titled Operation: Camouflage Christmas. Subsequent books in the series will release approximately every 4 months.

Life in the military is a world all its own that those outside it, aka civilians, can’t fully grasp. Yet the needs, wants, and desires of those in the military relate to us all. “DeeDee Lake and Susan M. Baganz have given us an engaging story of love, trust, and faith within a military context that connects us with the themes of determination, fear, hope, and dreams as these concerns resonant within us all. A text that stands alone well by itself but has planted a seed of anticipation for the rest of the series,” says V/R, CH (MAJ) Corey R. Arnold, Fort Carson, Colorado, Family Life Chaplain.

Operation: Christmas Camouflage (ISBN: 978-1-936501-70-0, $7.99) is the story of military brats, now Army officer candidates, Brooke Cooper-Sanchez and Bernard Travis who haven’t seen each other since high school. Bernard is determined to win Brooke’s heart, but how can love blossom when dating is forbidden? Operation: Christmas Camouflage will appeal to anyone who enjoys a good romance. The book will be available at CrossRiverMedia.com, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and other book retailers.

“I could not put this book down. I immediately fell in love with the characters. This hopeful romance is perfect for a hopeless romantic like me. If you love Christmas Hallmark movies, you will love this book,” says Carolyn Dale Newell, Christian speaker, and author of Faith That Walks on Water.

Lake, a long-time resident of Fountain, Colorado, grew up as a Navy brat, mostly in Spain, married an Army helicopter pilot, lived in over fifty houses, and still loves to move her furniture several times a year. Her military life prepared her to love people, expect the best, respect authority and other cultures, and always be inclusive. Her passion is to guide individuals on how to experience extraordinary relationships.
