A Hero to Come Home To - Marilyn Pappano

First he fought for his country. Now he'll fight for her.

Two years after losing her husband in Afghanistan, Carly Lowry has rebuilt her life in Tallgrass, Oklahoma. She has a job she loves teaching third grade and the best friends in the world: fellow military wives who understand what it means to love a man in uniform. She's comfortable and content...until she meets a ruggedly handsome stranger who rekindles desires Carly isn't quite sure she's ready to feel.

Staff Sergeant Dane Clark wanted to have a loving family, a twenty-year Army stint, and then a low-key civilian career. But the paratrooper's plans were derailed by a mission gone wrong. Struggling to adjust to his new life, he finds comfort in the wide open spaces of Tallgrass--and in the unexpected attention of sweet, lovely Carly. She is the one person who makes him believe life is worth living. But when Carly discovers he's been hiding the real reason he's come to Tallgrass, will Dane be able to convince her he is the hero she needs?

First thoughts after.....
More please! I have to wait til February 2014 for the next book.......sigh.....

How distracted did I get?
A Hero to Come Home To is a heartwarming story that is a must read for all!  A sweet story about widows and widwowers of US solders and Wounded Warriors who struggle to put their lives back together.  I loved this story from beginning to end and it's building you up for a series so I don't want to give away too much!  The lead characters are strong and real and I look forward to the next book in the series!
