Book Description: In one short month, cheerful army nurse Madeline Bright has become the darling of Prairie Springs, Texas. And if ex-pilot Jake Hopkins isn't careful, she might just conquer his heart. She's young, pretty and blithe-spirited…he's older and jaded. But being around Maddie brings back too many painful memories. Jake still feels guilty about failing to save Maddie's brother in an army helicopter crash years ago. So no matter how much Maddie wants to be in his life, for her own good, Jake can't allow that. He'll never have a normal, stable life.
And sweet Madeline deserves nothing less.
Review: This is not the type of book I typically read. I had to pick an inspirational book for a challenge I'm trying to complete. I'm glad I picked this one. Jack and Maddie are a very believable couple and their relationship very real. This story is about a solider who comes home from the middle east feeling like he lost everything. Jack is a flawed hero, but you can understand why he has become the way he is. Maddie is a great heroine she has know Jack most of her life and has been trying to reach out to Jack. If your looking for sweet romance with a message pick this up.
