I could not put the book down and have been raving about it to my coworkers for days. Jolene Zarkades is a wife and mother of two young daughters and.....a Black Hawk Pilot with the National Guard. Her husband, Michael, is a workaholic defense attorney who puts in long hours and is losing touch with his family. With their marriage of 12 years on shaky ground, the unthinkable happens; Jolene is deployed to Iraq.

In honor of Valentine's Day, this post is dedicated to my love of romance novels. I admit it. I am an incurable romantic. I love that light-headed, stomach dropping, lump-in-your-throat feeling you get when the man you love says something sweet, does something silly that touches your heart.
