A Souls Reunited Story

A companion to the Royal Navy Series

John Hanson joined the military because he wanted to serve his country. Lacking a home and family of his own, the idealistic young man longed to be a part of something bigger than himself. He didn’t expect to find love in officer’s training—so when an assignment took him away from Kevin Kendrick, the love of his life, he sacrificed personal happiness and did his duty.

Kevin has made his own sacrifices. Career came first, and the impressionable Army brat, tired of living in his father’s shadow, pledged his loyalty to his country and followed his ambition.

Now, seven years later, when the Army Kevin so faithfully served has made him the scapegoat for their latest Middle East snafu, he can only think of one place to go, one man who can provide solace and heal his wounds—John.

Reunited, the two war-weary lovers once again discover their passion for life, love, and one another. But Kevin’s past isn’t through with him yet, and when an old enemy surfaces, the two men realize that they must face the nightmares of the past together if they are to have the future they dream of.

ThreeStar Sadly, PTSD stories are pretty common right now. This one focuses on British officers. Kevin and John were lovers during their training, but they haven’t seen each other since Kevin joined the SAS and John went to Kosovo as a UN peacekeeper. Several years later, and both men have left the army. Their respective experiences have left them emotionally fragile when Kevin turns to John for support. The story starts gently as the men get reacquainted and begin to help each other through their PTSD experiences. But the second half of the book sends them running from mercenaries, assisted by Kevin’s former SAS teammates. It is an odd combination of events and I didn’t feel the book was long enough to accommodate both storylines. I was annoyed by the odd Americanism in the story. Having married into a family of British army officers, the actions, accents and dialogue between these two men was less than convincing. John and Kevin alternately sounded like Americans and British squaddies - not like Sandhurst graduates at all. I also found the timeline of the book confusing. The war in Kosovo started in 1998. But the men only had a seven year army career - there’s a ten year gap if the book ended in 2015. Leaving my concerns aside, I liked these two characters and I believed in their relationship. I wanted them both to succeed and to build a life together. I was given this in return for an honest review by Inked Rainbow Reads. ~Sarah

Lee Rowan is a top notch storyteller. This is the heartwarming story of two soldiers, each carrying the pain and horror of war within them, reuniting after years apart. John received a medical discharge and lives on disability after enduring time as a 'peacekeeper' -forced to watch and do nothing as atrocities were committed. Kevin has been chosen as the scapegoat for a political snafu after his team comes under fire in the field. Kevin takes a chance and contacts John to try and re-ignite the passion they shared in training. Together they can heal each other, but old enemies put Kevin and John in danger. Can Kevin's old team keep them alive? Rowan sets the story in London, and the dialog and slang expressions reflect it. The story is believable and given enough substance to be much more than an afterthought to the romance. A fast paced novel, a touching relationship and well done sex scenes. So far, I have loved everything this author has written and can't wait for more. Highly recommended!
