She swore she'd never give in to him…

Feisty nurse Jaci Piermont's heart was crushed when Staff Sergeant Ian Eddelton walked away from their passionate night together. But letting him know? Not an option! This reluctant socialite would much rather channel her energies into helping the vulnerable women she works with.

Now Ian's back—as gorgeous as ever, but with dark secrets

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Lots of great emotion with a dash of danger. The hero was totally delicious. Once I started reading this book, I couldn't put it down. I am so looking forward to reading the sister's story in "Secrets of a Shy Socialite."

Wendy S Marcus is a special author for me. Up until I started reading her books, I had a sort of phobia about reading books with sexual content. I sort of felt I had to run to confession or something. But when I started reading the work of this then new-for-me author and enjoyed the rich warmth and humanity of her writing, I realized (yes, at 48) that sexual activity is as much a part of life as any other aspect of living. The shyness melted away and I was cured of that particular phobia.

Craving Her Soldier's Touch by Wendy S Marcus is book#1 of Piermont sisters, this is a story of a war veteran hero and a Society socialite.

Right from the beginning this books starts with action and drama; there was never a dull moment as I read this book. Jaci was tough, fearless and funny. The chemistry between Jaci and her war veteran hero Ian was off that charts and their relationship wild and passionate.

If I had to pick on anything it would be on Ian's percep
Hard to believe that this is only Ms. Marcus’ fourth medical romance novel. Having left behind her passionate and accomplished Madrin Memorial Hospital nurses, she now embarks on a, let’s say, duet of novels with wealthy twin sisters Jaci and Jena Piermont.

First up is confident and fiesty sister, Jaci – a community health nurse and a Women’s Crisis Center advocate. Jaci was involved with Staff Sargeant, Ian Eddelton, some twelve or so months ago. She really liked the guy, but he up and ran back

This is my first Wendy S Marcus book and i believe my first medical romance. I read the blurb for this and the first chapter and was interested and decided it was time to try a couple new things. I am happy to say it was a good choice! This is the first of 2 in this series and is about a set of identical twin sisters who are as different as night and day. First up is Jaci. Both sisters need to marry in a few months time or give up a 25 million dollar trust fund. It's not that they're worried abo

This was such a good book and I ended up reading it in about 24 hours. The writing is good, the plot moves along well, and there is the perfect mix of romance and intimacy. The story opens with Jaci and Ian sharing a hot and steamy night together. He then goes off to serve in Iraq and comes home about a year later. During that time Jaci doesn’t hear from him and assume she has scared him off for good.

Ian is a typical alpha male who wants to protect what’s his and that includes Jaci. He suffers f

This book tells the story of Jaci, a public health nurse who devotes her time to help abuse victims. Both she and Jena is arich socialite who is stood to receive trust money only if they marry.

This book did not disappoint. Ian is downright sexy and Jaci is not your typical socialite, together they have some great chemistry. And,I like Jaci's character for channeling her energy into something positive after coming from a harsh family environment.

Another great book from Wendy S. Marcus, filled with emotion and hot sex! My favourite author of the moment and I can't wait to read Jena's story next :)
Lynn Spencer
C- at AAR, so 2.5 stars. Category romance authors at their very best pack a lot of emotion and characterization into a rather limited page count. Unfortunately, when they don't bring their A game, packing lots of conflict and emotion into a small book can result in a hot mess. Sadly, that's what happened throughout most of Craving her Soldier's Touch. This book just had too much going on, and none of the various plotlines and conflicts got developed well enough to really pack a solid punch.

Being a military wife I enjoyed the story. I liked that it didn't focus only on him but we did get him and what was going on with him but we got how well they worked together.

It was a sweet story and you have to love a man who is willing to help women.
