A sweet World War II romance from USA Today Bestselling Author Shanna Hatfield
All he needed was a bride. . .
Who said anything about falling in love?
Orphaned at birth and a loner all his life, the last thing Sergeant Klayne Campbell needs is for feisty Delaney Danvers to entangle his thoughts. Bravely volunteering for a top-secret mission almost certain to get him killed, Klayne can’t bear the thought of dying utterly alone. All he wants is to face death knowing his life meant something to at least one person. Offering Delaney a marriage of convenience, he plans to leave behind a war bride as his beneficiary. After just one night as her husband, Klayne realizes he’ll do anything to survive and return to her.
The moment she met handsome Sergeant Campbell at a holiday party, Delaney’s whole world shifted off kilter. Full of fun with an unquenchable zest for life, she isn’t afraid to go after what she wants. And what she wants is Klayne. When he prepares to join a hazardous mission, she seizes the opportunity to give him a reason to fight his way back home – to her heart.
A tender, sweet romance rich with history and enduring love, Home of Her Heart captures the era and emotions prevalent during America’s entry into World War II.
“In her arms, he’d finally discovered a place to belong, a place that was his and his alone. “
A wonderful sweet, emotional, historical romance. With inspiration from the real-life Doolittle Raiders, the history of WWII is woven throughout the story and comes to life. Shanna Hatfield consistency writes very strong female characters. While Sergeant Klayne did return a hero, Delaney really shows her strength as she faces numerous challenges on the ranch. Hatfield’s in depth research is blended so well in this book combining the history with romance, humor, emotions, and turmoil. I was engaged throughout the entire story and captivated by the characters, especially Delaney. I’m eagerly awaiting book 3 in the series, coming September 2018.
