Heartbreak Warfare by Heather Orgeron and Kate Stewart #BookReview #MilitaryRomance @hmorgeronauthor @authorklstewart


Now a Top 100 Amazon Bestseller!

Briggs,

Remember when we parted ways in Germany? It was the day I broke your heart. What you didn’t know was that I was breaking mine too.

I thought they’d be enough-my husband and my son. That I’d get home and everything would go back to the way it was . . .

Before the war.
Before the ambush.
Before you.

But, no matter how hard I try, I can’t erase the trauma we shared. I can’t seem to forget the way my heart beat in time with yours.

The truth is I’m lost without you.

I thought the nightmare was over when they pulled us from that hole in the ground, but nothing could have prepared me for the war I’d face at home.
I know it’s selfish of me to ask, but, please, I have to see you one last time. . .

All my love,
Scottie

My Review

Riveting!

This is not a book for pus-says as Mullins would say. There are so many raw moments, it brought tears to my eyes. Yes, it’s that good.

Katy Scott is proud of her military heritage and is happy to serve her country when she is called upon, even though it means leaving behind the most important people in her life- her husband, the Captain, and her six-year-old son, Noah.

Baghdad is an awakening, but with the help of her best friend, Mullins, Scott settles into camp life. This is where she first meets Christopher Briggs-infantry, and though she’s not sure she likes him, it’s hard to avoid the chemistry between them. But, Katy loves her husband, Gavin, and would never dream of cheating and she makes sure everyone- especially Briggs- knows this.

A routine trip to deliver supplies goes horribly awry and Briggs, Scott, and Mullins are captured by a militia force. What follows are some of the darkest days in these soldiers lives. My heart bled with all they were forced to endure. The only thing that kept Briggs and Scottie alive were each other. A bond was formed in that pit of hell that was impossible to break.

After their release, and return stateside, the war veterans try to recover the pieces of their lives and carry on, but nothing is as before.

There is only the after.

Favorite lines:

You were destined to be a part of my life. You’ve changed me. No matter where this journey takes us, when I close my eyes, it will be your face I see. When I breathe my last breath, your name will be on my lips.

I’m the problem, and that’s the hardest part. Our marriage was completely different before I was deployed. Army spouses deserve fucking medals.

Maybe time will give back what it took away, and I’ll be the wiser for it. Maybe…eventually. For now, my heart is the reckless navigator, and I, a reluctant passenger, unable to escape the way I love him.

This book will throw all your preconceived beliefs out the window. There are no easy answers, and in the end, all you can do is follow your heart.

I give Heartbreak Warfare 5+ lovely kisses- this book will destroy you!

Special Note from the Author

Dearest Readers,

Thank you for joining me in celebrating the release of THE MARINE’S RETURN, the sixth and final book in my ‘From Kenya, With Love’ series for Harlequin Heartwarming. No words can express how much I have loved writing this series, from watching the children in the first three books grow up to face their own romantic hurdles in books 4 through 6, to endearing orphaned baby elephants and other captivating wildlife, to the famous, breathtaking setting of Kenya’s Serengeti ecosystem and Masai Mara regions.

The stories in this series take on issues such as ivory poachers, loss of loved ones, selective mutism, fracking and other environmental issues, human rights and those of a country’s indigenous people, man vs nature conflicts, education for young girls/women who have little access, medical care in rural populations and the life-changing challenges our war veterans face, from PTSD to physical injuries.

The books do stand alone, although readers who have been following the series have said that, since it has a rich family saga/miniseries feel and characters from the first books play significant roles in the later stories, reading them all makes for a deeper experience. For example, Pippa Harper, who everyone meets as a spunky, adorable four-year old being raised at a remote, rustic elephant rescue camp in the Serengeti by her single-mom wildlife vet in book 1 (THE PROMISE OF RAIN), is a young adult in book 4 (EVERY SERENGETI SUNRISE), gets her own romance in book 5 (THE TWIN TEST) and even plays a role as the series comes to a close in book 6 (THE MARINE’S RETURN). We also see Haki, a childhood friend of Pippa’s in book 1, and Maddie, a ten-year-old who can’t speak in books 2 (AFTER THE SILENCE), get their hero/heroine stories in EVERY SERENGETI SUNRISE. Mac Walker, a rugged bush-pilot with an Indiana Jones air to him is seen throughout the series and gets his own adventure in THROUGH THE STORM. And we first meet the hero of THE MARINE’S RETURN, Chad Corallis, as a rambunctious, hyperactive and very cute toddler who is clearly destined to follow in his father’s footsteps and become a marine (book 2). He does just that, but his future ends up coming to a dark stop and he’s faced with a challenge he’s convinced he can’t overcome.

But, despite the seemingly impossible romantic obstacles, heart-gripping situations and, even, danger in the books, there’s always the promise of a happily ever after in a Harlequin Heartwarming romance. I hope you enjoy the series and this final story! Be sure to also check out my novella (which is linked to this series), THE SWEETHEART TREE, in the anthology A Heartwarming Thanksgiving.

Although my ‘From Kenya, With Love’ series is coming to a close, I’m embarking on a new series for Harlequin Heartwarming that will take you from rescuing elephants in Africa to saving sea turtles along the Outer Banks of North Carolina. My ‘Turtleback Beach’ series is set in a fictional beach town along the more southern Hatteras Island of the Outer Banks and the first book, ALMOST A BRIDE, which involves a runaway bride and an ex-military hero in the witness protection program, releases June 1, 2019.

Many thanks to all of my readers. I wish everyone a peaceful and happy New Year!
