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.
