Duty, fidelity, honor . . . what’s not to love about a military man? In this military romance anthology, meet these seven irresistible heroes who fight just as passionately for true love as they do for their country.
Healing Beau: USA Today best-selling author Alicia Hunter Pace spins a poignant small-town story of healing and homecoming. After recklessly destroying his military career, Ranger Sergeant Beau Beauford retreats home to Beauford Bend . . . only to promptly impregnate his best and oldest friend. Christian Hambrick is made of guts, steel, and plain good sense, except for that lifelong torch she’s held for Beau. When old secrets resurface, she’ll wage full-scale war on Beau’s past to preserve their future.
Her Soldier’s Touch: When U.S. Army Sergeant First Class Colten Taylor returns briefly to Phoenix to bury his brother, he’s shocked to see Rachel Madison waiting for him at the airport. He regrets the morning he walked away from her; coming from an abusive home taught Colt to put limits on all his relationships. But now that she has his son in tow, will he keep running?
California Homecoming: After returning from duty in the Middle East wounded in both body and spirit, Hunter Evans volunteers to help Sarah Ladina fix up a run-down Victorian in the beach town of Costanoa. Can they get beyond their painful past and complicated present to find the love and respect they need?
Island Pursuits: Former U.S. Marine Adrian Mendez returns to his homeland of Trinidad and Tobago only to run into a feisty island goddess with one flaw – she has no love of anything military.
Angel Without Wings: After resigning from a promising army career to help his mother and wounded brother, Jesse McCormick struggles to save the family farm. Only one plan will earn him enough money to get his family out of debt – a dangerous assignment with a paramilitary group. But he’s slowly losing his heart to Linnea Reyes, a war widow helping to save the farm. Can he give up her love just when he’s found it?
The Cormorant Club: When they’re reunited by chance, Holly and Scott’s attraction is as undeniable as when they met in a MASH unit in Vietnam. But when a murder-for-hire group starts targeting their war contacts, will they lose their second chance at love?
Enlisted by Love: Ex-army officer Matthew Blake is eager to start a new career, until he comes up against the most challenging obstacle he’s ever encountered: Greta Ferguson, the interior designer who challenges his every order.

About California Homecoming
This military romance has always been one of my favorite books, although that’s a bit like declaring a favorite child.
I have such respect for people who serve, and am ashamed at how poorly we treat and take care of our wounded warriors. While the VA is often vilified, there are many dedicated men and women within that organization that want to do what’s best for our returning soldiers. I talked to several in the course of writing this book.
One of the hardest adaptations injured soldiers need to make is their limitations. Hunter has a prosthetic leg and feels he needs to give up surfing, his favorite sport forever. Fortunately, for Hunter and others, there are organizations to help them learn again.
My dad had a stroke that made life difficult for him physically and mentally. He was always angry afterwards–angry at his limitations and never working around them. I imagine that’s a normal reaction. The fight is to get past that stage.
I hope you enjoy California Homecoming, and the other military romances, as Hunter fights his way back to the living and an option for a new life and love.
