The eternal bachelor finally finds his match—if he can get her attention…

After her fiancé dies in her arms in Afghanistan, combat nurse Kim Torres decides to get as far away from men and the war as she can. Now a nanny to a little girl, she’s trying to date again, but her heart just isn’t in it. Not even for a man as sexy as Owen Kent…

When Major Owen Kent returns from his deployment with the Marines in Afghanistan, he discovers how much things have really changed. The billionaire CIO’s friends are settling down and having families—things a serial dater like Owen doesn’t expect to do. But he’s also not expecting his friend Harper’s new nanny to be the woman who stole his heart half a world away. Kim may want nothing to do with Owen, but he’s not about to surrender without a fight.


This is a light read and enjoyable for anyone who likes a good romance. Kim Torres a nurse watches her fiancé die a horrible death in Afghanistan. If that isn’t enough she finds out that all was not well in their relationship. Collapsing into a man’s arms she comes back home broken but determined that neither Tom’s family nor her own will know the truth. Unable to go back into nursing she takes a job as a nanny. I could empathize with Kim as it must be horrible to see the things these nurses do and to have to come back and be able to assimilate back into society. Kim knows she should begin to have a normal life but her past keeps coming back to haunt her. By accident she meets Owen and starts to feel again. Their love story is full of crisis and Kim must learn to trust again. When Owen goes back to combat and gets injured both must decide if their love is enough.

Owen was Tom’s commanding officer and was the person who caught Kim. From the moment he caught her he knew something was special about her. When their paths cross by accident he can’t believe his luck. But Kim is a hard catch and Owen can’t tell Kim he was the officer in question as she refuses to talk about the war. When the truth comes out she is devastated and with this news and Owen also has to reveal to her that he has to go back to Afghanistan for another tour. When he returns home injured he does not think anyone would want him in the condition he is in. Love prevails and family issues get resolved.

The horrors of war and the impact it has on the survivors, was evident throughout this book. Also the difficulties the vets have in getting help when they are injured. I felt the author did justice to these issues while writing fiction. I enjoyed this book and look forward to others by Jeannie Moon.
