It is rare that you come across a genre romance as complex as this one. You will find the three classic conflicts: Man vs himself, man vs. man, and man vs. environment. The story follows JD Selkirk, a wounded veteran who has returned from conflict in the Middle East. This book is primarily JD's story, although it is told from both his point of view and that of Paula. Paula is a family friend who has been in love with JD for a while, but he has been so focused on his injuries that he can't see her in that way.
JD refuses to leave the VA hospital and doctors are recommending more surgeries that he has refused. As an amputee, JD has to find a way to live without the lower half of one of his legs. Throw in a brother who wants to sell the family ranch, and you have a perfect recipe for disaster. Paula believes that JD will come around if he leaves the hospital and returns to the ranch where he grew up and uses underhanded methods to get him there. JD's male pride threatens to get in the way of his hero's journey, while Paula has to learn she can't control everything. This writer stays out of the bedroom, but still manages to make the pages sizzle with 5.0 out of 5 starssexual tension.
If you want a strong, character-driven romance, give this one a try. You won't be disappointed.
