of politics. He’s a wounded soldier returning home from the battlefield. Can
they place their trust in the power of love?
politician’s daughter better than quiet, respectable math teacher Brooke
Ellstein. But she won’t be caught swimming with the sharks again, not after the
son of a wealthy donor sinks his teeth into her and gets away with it. Still,
political connections have their perks, such as heading up the governor’s
“Support Our Troops” pen-pal initiative—and getting first dibs on the
smoking-hot sergeant whose picture shakes her right down to her
classy Brooke, Shane Develen instinctively hides his commando tattoos and
blue-collar roots—and he can tell that she’s hiding something, too. But Shane
knows he’s gained her trust when Brooke gives him a blisteringly sexy photo.
Then he’s injured in an ambush and a fellow soldier posts the snapshot online.
Overnight, Brooke’s reputation turns to ashes. Even though he’s totally wrong
for her, Shane shows up on Brooke’s doorstep, determined to set things
right—and discovers that right or wrong has nothing on the chemistry they
romance. A nurse by trade, Wendy holds a Master of Science in Health Care
Administration, a degree that does her absolutely no good as she now spends her
days, nights, and weekends mucking around in her characters’ lives creating
conflict, emotion, and, of course, a happily ever after. Wendy lives in the
beautiful Hudson Valley region of New York. When she’s not writing, she enjoys
spending time with her family, which includes her dog Buddy, and
blogging/e-mailing/tweeting/facebooking with her online friends.

Ok let me start off by saying I am in love. Totally and completely in love with this story. Though my heart breaks for both Shane and Brooke and the situation they each find themselves in. Brooke’s strength to keep going and fighting even when she really wishes she could breakdown. She also does such a fantastic job of being there for Shane and showing him that, there is nothing he can do to make her feel like he is less then her. Though Shane does so often not feel like he is good enough for her, the way he is when he returns from war, injured and no where close to being the man he used to be, makes him feel even less worthy of her. But even if he doesn’t want to admit it he really is her beacon of hope and even his memories of Brooke help him through his darkest moments.
This story is so real and honest. Anyone with someone they love in the military will not want to miss it. I know reading it had me thinking of my boys and preparing for whatever they could be dealing with. Wendy does such a wonderful job of helping us see into the thoughts of a war hero.
Happy Reading… Adri
