Her Little Secret (Harlequin Super Romance #1248) based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
She left the police force for love, but six years ago Abby Carlton gave up on her fiancé Thomas Riley. She concluded he was unable to balance his work as a soldier with a loving family relationship with her. His duty to country always came first, second and last; she did not make the bottom rung of the food chain. She moved to Houston returning to the force. Currently she works on the Houston Crisis Intervention Team................... Thomas is back begging her to help him as he has no one else to turn to. He explains he lost his arrogance when he hesitated on a rescue mission; three of his team, a woman, children, and a cleric died. Abby is unable to say no, but soon their love rekindles. However, Abby knows he will leave and though she now carries his child, she plans to raise the child alone. Perhaps it was the deadly incident or his second chance, but Thomas knows what he lost and refuses to allow déjà vu to occur, but must persuade his beloved woman in blue to give him another chance....................... This fine police procedural romance stars a wonderful female protagonist and guilt wracked male needing her hugs, warmth, and love to help him cope with a form of battle fatigue syndrome caused by a failed mission leading to deaths. The story line grips the audience as Abby and Thomas battle their attraction even as she helps him accept he is not superman. A subplot involving another of the Women in Blue seems out of the blue; still HER LITTLE SECRET is a fine tale focusing on how difficult it is for a dedicated military person to keep a family.......................
