Not exactly a war-setting but war is a plot element. Fun fast book that has some real heart-wrenching aspects -- the heroine meets and sleeps with a devastatingly gorgeous stranger, and that's the first chapter. What happens between them is sweet and serious. The other characters in the book really add to the story (her widower dad, her best friend (the guy next door), her son.
I wrote a long review and Goodreads ate it. I'm not in the mood to re-write it.

I enjoyed the book and felt the character development and emotional development was quite good. The prose slipped into the melodramatic occasionally, and the set-up at the end was a little contrived, but I forgave it all. The book made me sigh, and I'll definitely read it again.
Une nouvelle fois, Lorraine Heath nous offre une histoire d’amour belle et tendre avec un héros particulièrement touchant comme elle sait remarquablement le faire.
L’histoire démarre par ce que l’on pourrait qualifier d’une aventure d’un soir. Hunter Fletcher, adepte des relations express avec les femmes, écume les bars où il est facile de trouver de belles jeunes femmes prêtes à lui accorder ce qu’il veut sans promesses ni attaches. Mais ce soir-là c’est sur Serena Hamilton qu’il va tomber, et i

i really did not like this book, i typically like Lorraine Heath writing, but there was no depth to the characters.
This book was exactly what I was in the mood for. It was a good blend of sweet, romantic, and yummy hero. ;) I had a couple of minor issues with the plot (view spoiler) ...more
The second book in Lorraine Heath's Contemporary Duo series. Serena Hamilton and Hunter Fletcher meet at a honky-tonk and have a one night stand. Serena never expects to see Hunter again but does.

I've read a few of Lorraine Heath's historical romances and decided to check out this contemporary romance series. It was a pretty good read.
Serena and Hunter. She's widowed and lonely and they have a one-night stand that turns into something else. He has secrets that he can't share with her so she can't trust him. She was a pill. I didn't like her at all, which really ruined my enjoyment of the book.
more 3.5 than 4 but I like this author!

Another good story too short. I find this author really good to face those themes, like, in this book, domestic violence and what it does to children. And then the importance of a good family. Only I would like to read something more about it.

Not bad, a short sweet story very promising.
Really a nice story once I got into it. Hunter was a great character, Serena -- a little harder to like.
I love all of her books. If you are looking for an easy read, romance then she is great for you.

Lorraine Heath has always had a soft spot for emotional love stories. No doubt because growing up, watching movies with her mom, she was taught that the best movies "won't half make you cry."

She is the daughter of a British beauty (her mom won second place in a beauty contest sponsored by Max Factor during
