—Robyn Carr, New York Times Bestselling Author on Because of You

He's in for the fight of his life . . .

Army captain Trent Davila loved his wife, Laura, and their two beautiful children. But when he almost lost his life in combat, something inside him died. He couldn't explain the emptiness he felt or bridge the growing distance between him and his family-so he deployed again. And again. And again...until his marriage reached its breaking point. Now, with everything on the line, Trent has one last chance to prove to his wife that he can be the man she needs ...if she'll have him

. . . to win back his only love.

Laura is blindsided when Trent returns home. Time and again, he chose his men over his family, and she's just beginning to put the pieces of her shattered heart back together. But when Trent faces a court martial on false charges, only Laura can save him. What begins as an act of kindness to protect his career inflames a desire she thought long buried-and a love that won't be denied. But can she trust that this time he's back to stay?

★ 05/26/2014
In Scott’s touchingly sincere third Coming Home novel (after Until There Was You), Capt. Trent Davila doesn’t know how to stay away from the war, until he realizes that his dedication to the Army has cost him his family. After being wounded in action, Trent volunteers for deployment after deployment. Finally, his wife, Laura, sends him divorce papers, which he can’t bring himself to sign. When Trent’s accused of harassing a female subordinate, he and Laura must pretend to be a happy couple to keep him out of jail. But the pretense doesn’t last long, as they realize they’re still deeply in love and learn to rebuild their relationship and life together. Trent and Laura are both rendered as wounded, lovable people, and readers will cheer for each stumbling, shy step toward the couple’s reunion. Scott’s prose is witty and sharp, and her delightful cast of characters keeps this delectable page-turner vibrant throughout. Agent: Donna Bagdasarian, Publication Riot Group. (July)
