A Soldier's Promise by Cheryl Wyatt

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~CHERYL WYATT~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A poor but honest school teacher with a disabled student.
A heroic member of the pararescue jumpers.
A letter from the boy telling of his dream to meet someone from special forces.
The teacher, the rescuer, the boy in need~~~~~~love is in the air.

That sweet man, so conflicted and hurt, but so honorable and kind. And the teacher trying to do right by her little student.

I loved A Soldier's Promise.

The thing is, we always know, if we're reading a romance that it's gonna be happily every after, right? But Cheryl Wyatt set this book up so we just didn't know. I mean sure the hero and heroine would find a way to be together, but there was more at stake than them and Wyatt didn't necessarily give us all the easy answer, or then again, maybe she did.

I'm not telling.

But I PROMISE she's going to give you a story that's going to be hard to put down.

Something that made this rise above so many romances was how interesting the hero's job was. Pararescuers are a special forces unit trained to recover personnel in hostile areas. That is their primary mission. Their motto is, “That others may live.”

I'd never heard of pararescuers before and it was fun to learn about them.

It all added up to me reading into the wee morning hours. And it's not like I just was determined to find out what happened and I defied good sense.
Oh, no, Cheryl is sneakier than that.

I just read and read and read then I put the book down and saw the clock. I was all the way gone into A Soldier's Promise.

A beautiful story.

A definite Sleep Robber.

The book kept my up til the wee hours also! A great job writing. And the characters really stayed with me as well.

Nice job, Cheryl!

I agree with the review, I really didn't know how the story was truly going to end. It kept me guessing till right at the end. Delightful story and I'm looking forward to the next in the series.

You have sold me. This sounds like a good review. If it is a sleep robber, I will have to get it and pass it on for my Church Secretary to read. God Bless.

Hey Mary,

Are you staying warm?!! Sheesh, this is crazy stuff! Regarding my blog-itis: I only have two, one polically motivated, one financially motivated:) As for books, I prefer to let great authors like you write them so I can just READ them!

Later, Karen

Isn't that cover the BEST. The hero is such a sweetie, too.
Just like he looks in the cover.
