Greg Rainwater lost a piece of himself in the deserts of Iraq, a piece his Shaman great-grandfather would call his soul. Heading to Freewill, Wyoming, the retired Marine hopes to find what he’s looking for. After one meeting with the beautiful Georgia Crane, he thinks he has found the missing piece. She has other ideas.
Under her skin…
Georgia gave up her dreams to look after her stubborn, ailing grandfather in small-town Freewill. Newcomer Greg isn’t helping by enabling the old man to break her careful rules every chance he gets. That doesn’t stop her from lusting after the hot Marine—she simply refuses to give into the desire.
Paired together by Madame Eve’s 1Night Stand dating service, Georgia is mortified, while Greg can’t believe his good luck. Distrust turns to attraction and irritation to desire, but can they bridge their differences and find what they’re missing—each other?

quick read that will make you smile When you meet the other half of your HEA, why would you argue or fight that? Georgia has tasked herself to be her grandfather’s caretaker and has made sure that he is her number one priority pushing anything that is good for her out of the way to make sure he is taken care of. Her grandfather befriends Greg Rainwater, a retired Marine who has left his soul in Afghanistan but has brought back an injury and the PTSD that is associated with his injury. These two people would never seem to meet without the help of Georgia’s grandfather. This is a wonderful and heart-warming short story with a beautiful HEA that made me so happy to read it. Greg and Georgia are so good together they are each other’s perfect puzzle piece, even though he has issues with PTSD and she doesn’t want to give up the control over taking care of her grandfather and let him live his life the way he wants. The story is woven so well, I fell in love with everyone in the story. Each character is just another wonderful stepping stone to add to the richness of the story. Yes, it is a short story and usually I am leery about them since some lack substance because it is a quick read but this story wraps up neatly. If you want a quick read that will make you smile I suggest this story. It is a keeper that when I need a little pick me up will be a “go-to” book for me. -Reviewed by Khriste
