(Falling for a Hero) by Susan Lute
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Note: Harlequin Author
There’s no place like home, and to Gunnery Sergeant Jane Donovan, home is the US Marine Corps, until she makes a mistake. A tragic mistake that costs an orphaned kid from the poorest part of Madrid his life. Now, because of a little insubordination and disorderly conduct on her part, she’s about to lose the one thing she values most, leaving her with one option. Put her future in the hands of Dr. Chase Russell, or become a civilian. The choice is hers.
Chase Russell has royally screwed up. Busy chasing a lucrative book deal that would legitimize his theories about treating war veterans suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and let’s face it, give him a certain amount of fame too, he missed a client’s cry for help and subsequent admission to the hospital for a failed drug overdose. In the aftermath, he leaves his lucrative practice in Chicago to start over on a lovely, neglected Central Oregon ranch, looking for the peace and sanctuary he craves.
When the Marine arrives, nursing a cranky hip and an even crankier disposition, he wants nothing to do with her, but the fun is just beginning. Between helping two runaway kids, and taking the stubborn Marine through play therapy, what’s an ex-counselor to do, but make sure this hero finds her way home.
