Have you ever woken up every day afraid of everything?

For single mom and widow Melody Carter, six months passed since an IED ripped her life apart. Everyone is sympathetic and offers platitudes of comfort and support. Everyone thinks they know why she's grieving, but Melody isn't mourning her broken heart. She's ashamed to be grateful her abusive husband won't hurt her anymore, and she's scared for her child. Born with a mild heart defect, her daughter needs lifesaving surgery. But with her funds tight and her emotional scars tighter, she's running out of options. When she receives an offer for assistance from Mike's Place, can Melody put her faith in the men her husband called friend?

Have you ever woken up, day after day, to discover your body's betrayal?

Marine Captain, Joe Anderson Cooper, received the Silver Star for Valor when he led his unit through heavy fire to rescue fellow Marines. Despite numerous injuries, the captain refused medical aid, insisting that the medics attend to others. A broken back and shattered bones put Captain Cooper in a wheelchair, and every day is a battle to keep his recovery on track and his sanity intact. When a single mom moves in to the apartment next door to his and he recognizes a kindred-damaged soul, can he overcome her fear and be the man she's always needed?

Can these two lonely souls rise to the challenge or will their scars trap them forever?

Pure romance of the healing sort :-)

If you are looking for just sex, this story isn't for you. It's a very sweet tale of emotional healing for a physically abused widow and her ill baby, and a war torn vet. The author does her usual amazing job of taking a short story format but able to fully develop its characters and bring them to life. We see characters from Ms. Long's previous stories make short appearances.

A sweet, happily ever after romance :-)

How did this get release

I cannot figure out if the reader is a robot or a human. Impossible to follow the story.
