Mariette said: "Are you married?"
That certainly came out of left field. Hadn't they covered this? In a roundabout way, at least? "No."
"Ever been married?"
"Then who trained you?"
He blinked. "Come again?"
"You just got up from the table, rinsed your plate and loaded it into the dishwasher. That's learned behavior. It's not normal for your kind."
What a surprise read! I loved so much about this book. The characters are all heart-warming and put a constant smile on my face. It was n
First off already loved the book because the heroine Mariette owns a bakery. This was a very hot book, but it had moments when tears welled up. It had my emotions going. I'm happy that Jack got the closure he needed at the end. Without giving too much away I'm happy to see one character get a second chance and realize that people around had his back.
Decent book in this series, it's predictable but I enjoy this series, former Army ranger starting life afresh and falling in love.

Really enjoyed this installment in Men Out of Uniform series. Since Mariette's introduction in the first book I wanted to see her story. I was not disappointed.

Her hero, Jackson Oak Martin, was absolutely gorgeous. I loved how Nelspn brought this former Army Ranger's story to the forefront. He was slightly flawed from his injury suffered in the line of fire.

Would definitely recommend this quick, fun read.

I loved Dillon and Livvie's love story though the story was about Jack and Mariette. Marriette is a sweet heart and I definitely fell for the latter character rather than the main one.
I like Rhonda Nelson's stories and like the Ranger Security series too - though I probably prefer the three original stories best. This was another good one though. The detailed war description as the start was excellent, showing the comradeship and horror of war (its not long if you dont like that sort of thing) and sets up our wounded hero. Marietta's personal history is unusual and lends a differnet slant on heroine status. They get together (it is a romance) but its the surrounding character ...more
I'm giving this 3.5 stars. I think it was a cute book and a fast read. I adored Livvie and you rarely see writers put people with special needs in books. I also loves Charlie, as for the main characters I did love them. It was also refreshing not to see conflict after conflict thrown at this couple.
I thoroughly enjoyed this! There were parts of the plot that I found a little implausible, but that didn't stop me from liking it. I thought both Jack and Marietta were delightful and was really touched by the way the author included part dealing with Down's Syndrome.
