Great Sweet Romance Reads For Christmas
Reviewed in the United States on November 30, 2016
Because the previous stories in this series have all won Readers' Favorite Book Awards, including the 2016 Silver Medal in Military Fiction, I was looking forward to reading Tamara Ferguson’s latest wounded warrior romance. This story did not disappoint! In fact, I think with its lighthearted theme regarding family and friends and the love they share at Christmas time, it might be one of my all-time favorite stories written by the author. To me, a talented writer is someone who has the skill in transforming an obviously well researched topic, such as wounded warriors and the trials they face in rehabilitation, and turning this subject matter into a heartwarming romance full of love, joy and hope. I can certainly see how this author has won her awards.
And wow! What a stirring prologue - I can envision this scene in Iraq perfectly.
Somehow, Luke finally managed to wedge the cockpit open, and when he reached inside to pull Zach out, Jason held back the burning cockpit door. He felt a blistering pain in his hand, but he was more concerned about what was happening inside the plane. Zach’s flesh appeared to be on fire, and Jason did what he could to assist Luke with pulling Zach out while propping up the door.
And later -
Jason’s vision unexpectedly went dim, as one of his men approached, and stared at him with apparent concern. “Sir, we need to get you over to the medics.” It was then that Jason realized he was bleeding, and looked down at his left hand. What hand? He stared dumbly at the mangled, bloody mass of bones he’d used to prop open the cockpit door. And then his mind abruptly went blank, as he collapsed onto the ground.
It’s truly poignant when the author returns to the past to share the moment when Jason and Kat fell in love-Jason grinned. Kat looked so cute with her eyes closed and her head tipped upward, waiting for the kiss. He was a little nervous himself when he lightly laid his lips over hers.
“Oh, that’s so good.” he whispered against her mouth, moments later, when she’d finally relaxed.
Kat laughed softly, with her mouth still pressed against his.
He couldn’t understand it. Everything about her in his arms just felt so right. He’d been kissing girls for a pretty long time now, but what was it about this girl that made their kiss extraordinary?
Kat was like magic, he decided, nuzzling his face against hers. He simply held her in his arms, because all he really wanted to do, deep down, was to be with her.
If you’re looking for exceptionally well-written military romance that’s both stirring and emotional, as well as very romantic, I would highly recommend Tamara Ferguson’s multi-award winning series. Two Hearts’ Christmas Wish is a beautiful 4th addition to the already 3 time Readers’ Favorite Book Award Winning Series.
A PRICKLY CHRISTMAS KISS
This was an adorable romantic comedy. I enjoyed the Christmas twist with Elf and Rudi, with his big red nose, as well as the cute little cat named Sue, (named after the Johnny Cash song), who was nudging the romance along through the entire story, despite their continual bickering.
This story definitely brought a smile to my face, and it's a delightful romance fitting for just about any age group.
