Remember when we parted ways in Germany? It was the day I broke your heart. What you didn’t know was that I was breaking mine too.
I thought they’d be enough–my husband and my son. That I’d get home and everything would go back to the way it was . . .
Before the war.
Before the ambush.
But, no matter how hard I try, I can’t erase the trauma we shared. I can’t seem to forget the way my heart beat in time with yours.
The truth is I’m lost without you.
I thought the nightmare was over when they pulled us from that hole in the ground, but nothing could have prepared me for the war I’d face at home.
I know it’s selfish of me to ask, but, please, I have to see you one last time. . .
All my love,
About the Author:
Heather M. Orgeron is a Cajun girl with a big heart and a passion for romance. She married her high school sweetheart two months after graduation and her life has been a fairytale ever since. She’s the queen of her castle, reigning over five sons and one bossy little princess who has made it her mission in life to steal her Momma’s throne. When she’s not writing, you will find her hidden beneath mounds of laundry and piles of dirty dishes or locked in her tower(aka the bathroom) soaking in the tub with a good book. She’s always been an avid reader and has recently discovered a love for cultivating romantic stories of her own.
A Texas native, Kate Stewart lives in North Carolina with her husband, Nick, and her naughty beagle, Sadie. She pens messy, sexy, angst-filled contemporary romance as well as romantic comedy and erotic suspense because it’s what she loves as a reader. Kate is a lover of all things ’80s and ’90s, especially John Hughes films and rap. She dabbles a little in photography, can knit a simple stitch scarf for necessity, and on occasion, does very well at whiskey.

This book….wow, this book is EVERYTHING…I want to thank both Heather and Kate for writing this.
As an Army veteran myself and also married to a Army combat veteran. I felt more in these pages than I have in a long while. This book made me ugly cry in the most beautiful way.
This story was beautifully written. It was honest, it was brutal and it was amazing.
This is the story of survival. It is a story of what happens when love changes and grows. It’s about the devastation of war and its impact on a family. It’s the challenges that makes you realize what really matters most in your life and the decisions made are not what may be best for everyone. But it’s what’s best for the person making them.
This story is about more than just Scottie and Briggs. It’s about all of the characters in this book. And the multiple POV’s just bring that fact home even more. I didn’t know who to root for more. I could see the devastation and happiness in each and every character. That is a true testament to great writing.
At its heart, this story is about healing, it’s about what traumatic experiences can do to a person. What traumatic effects do to a family and friends. It’s about the strength it takes to realize that the enemy “failed” and you have to adjust to your new world view.
This story is going to be in my “Top Reads of 2018”. Read this story! I had to step away a few times to catch my breath.
As an American soldier myself, I want to say thank you for writing this story. For writing with sensitivity, for writing with respect, for writing it with understanding and for writing it with love. Thank you…
