Keeping his men alive is all that matters to Sergeant First Class Shane Garrison. But meeting Jen St. James the night before his latest deployment makes Shane wonder if there’s more to life than war. He leaves for Iraq remembering a single kiss with a woman he’ll never see again—until a near fatal attack lands him back at home and in her care.
Jen has survived her own brush with death and endured its scars. And yet there’s a fire in Shane that makes Jen forget all about her past. He may be her patient, but when this warrior looks her in the eyes, she feels—for the first time in a long time—like a woman. Shane is too proud to ask for help, but for Jen, caring for him is more than a duty—it’s a need. And as Jen guides Shane through the fires of healing, she finds something she never expected—her deepest desire.
I have seen this author mentioned around the blogosphere, and wondered what it might be like to read her. I picked out a book on NetGalley of hers, then went into panic when I realised it was part of a series, thanks to a reader on Goodreads. So I quickly began to read this one - found I had already bought it anyway. ( I really have no idea what I have on my Kindle until I go to buy and Amazon tells me I bought it on such a date!)
Well I wasn't very long into this book when I fell in love with the characters and the whole plot line. Jessica Scott has had a lot of military experience and so her writing reflects that. I loved Shane and Jen and their friends.
Its not a long read - I was disappointed when I came to the end, one of those Kindle ebooks that fool you, you think you have 40% to go, but its a trailer for some other book
It is a short novella and I enjoyed it. I am on to the next novella in this series.
And then I will be caught up enough to read the one from NetGalley.
I was rather interested to find out a little more about Jessica Scott and I enjoyed this short video interview.
